Heartburn, or stomach acidity, is caused by an excess of hydrochloric acid in gastric juices. Characteristic symptoms are pain and burning sensations in the stomach, and acid regurgitation.
In terms of nutrition, the important thing is to cut down on your intake of acidifying foods. Here is a fairly exhaustive list of foods to watch out for: peanuts / asparagus / artichokes / Brussel sprouts / egg white / fat broth / processed meat / liver / kidney / brain / white flour and derivatives (bread, biscuits, pastry) / strong cheese / hardened fat / refined oil / dried legumes (peas, lentils, beans) / semolina / white sugar / tea / alcohol / coffee / chocolate / meat / fish / poultry / game meat / pasta.
