Excess stomach acid or acidosis is currently recognised as a disease of civilisation, yet it belongs to the most dangerous degenerative health problems. Signs and symptoms of acidosis should be taken seriously, because a long-term acidosis may result in a more severe condition. Frequent recurrence of excess stomach acid is a result of food chemicals, preservatives and artificial colourings that significantly clog the body with acid.
Heartburn or pyrosis is a main indication of excess acidity in the body. It manifests as uncomfortable, sometimes even painful heartburn behind the breastbone. Pyrosis occurs as a reflex gastric disorder, where stomach acid returns back up to the oesophagus. A large part of the population suffers from heartburn which is particularly caused by unhealthy lifestyle, poor diet, weak immunity and excess alcohol consumption.
