GERD

GERD stands for Gastro-Esophagus Reflux Disease, commonly referred to as acid reflux. It can be colloquially explained as an inflammation of the alimentary canal (particularly the esophagus or food pipe), caused by the reflux of the stomach contents back to the esophagus. These contents, along with food particles, consist of acid, enzymes like pepsin, and digestive juices like bile. The acidic content of reflux leads to an inflammation of the esophagus and this chronic condition is called GERD. The regurgitation of stomach content is common in human beings, but GERD-afflicted individuals have a greater content of acid in reflux compared to other individuals.

  • Keeping an upright posture after eating a meal may help prevent acid reflux. Raising your head about six inches will also allow gravity to influence the contents within your stomach.
  • Eating smaller meals will reduce your chances of suffering from acid reflux. If you eat your meals at least 3-4 hours before going to sleep, as well as avoiding bedtime snacks, you will be able to thwart the symptoms of acid reflux.
  • Some of the foods that you eat contain ingredients or substances that may irritate the esophagus or weaken the sphincter that can lead to acid reflux. Peppermint, chocolate, tomatoes, grapefruit, oranges, fatty foods, and alcohol all contribute to lower esophageal sphincter problems.
  • Not only will quitting smoking improve your overall health, but will also eliminate one of the many factors that relaxes the lower esophageal sphincter.
