Valentine’s Day A Bad Day For Heartburn Sufferers

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Jumping in the sack with your Valentine’s date after a big meal on Monday (Feb. 14) may be what your heart desires – but it could give you a bad case of heartburn.

That’s according to physician Dr. Paulo Pacheco, who says that lying down too soon after eating can bring on acid reflux.

Instead, he suggests lovers take a walk, “cuddle and talk” or do anything that will provide a three-hour buffer between your meal and your freaky lay in the hay.

In addition, Pacheco says that if you go to a Mexican restaurant on Valentine’s Day, avoid really spicy meals because not only will it aggravate heartburn, you could get some serious flatulence from the beans and spice.

Finally, wine is typically the drink of choice on the lover’s day, but chugging a lot of vino increases blood flow to the stomach – which increases the production of acid.
