Let’s talk about heartburn!

Millions of people experience heartburn every single day.

This is when you have a painful burning sensation in your chest or just behind your breastbone.

This is caused by your stomach acid that backs up into your esophagus, the long tube that carries food from your mouth to your stomach.

As food travels down your esophagus, it goes through a band of muscle, called the esophageal sphincter which acts like a valve that opens and closes allowing your food to enter your stomach and not backwash back up.

If this valve is weakened at all, food, or your stomach acid will overflow into your esophagus causing a burning and painful sensation.

One ear seed point that can influence the health and strength of your valve, your esophageal sphincter, is an auricular point called the Cardia point. It’s also called the esophageal sphincter point due to its direct correspondence to your esophageal sphincter.

Placing an ear seed on this point will have a direct influence on your esophageal sphincter and your heartburn.
