Suffering from mild acid flux?
Breathing exercise can help ease that annoying pain.
A study of 19 adults with mild acid flux found that "belly breathing" exercises helped control acid reflux.
Medically named gastroesophogeal reflux disease, acid reflux when the stomach acid is backed up to the throat.
While the study proved that belly breathing could help, scientists are skeptical of the results due to the small size of the study.
Another detraction of the study was that only 11 of the 19 participants completed the study.
Some preferred meds, others were too busy and a few participants even admitted of being too lazy.
Too lazy to breathe?!
Scientists hope the study and exercises can be proven to help acid reflux-stricken people.
With that, breathing exercises have no side effect like medications.
