Excess Stomach Acidity

Our stomach produces acid to digest the food that we eat. This is a regular and natural process. Whenever we eat, cells within the lining of the stomach pump acid to liquefy your sumptuous dinner, from mash potatoes to a slab of steak.

Problem occurs when these cells produce large amount of acid, more than your stomach needs. When this happens, you will suffer from stomach acidity. You would know if you were suffering from stomach acidity if you feel a burning sensation just above the stomach, or right below (the hollow part) your breastbone.

Cosmetic surgery is so common place in our society that people rarely flinch at the news when ‘Some one has had something done’. However people who undergo the procedure will go to great lengths to ensure the authenticity of the procedure’s outcome. A natural consequence of these procedures is scarring. For people who have had a facelift, scarring occurs around and behind the ear. For people who have had a forehead lift, scars are usually at the hairline. For women who have had breast augmentation surgery, a scar will often form around the outer edge of the areola, under the breast or in the arm pit.
