ACID REFLUX TREATMENT & GERD TREATMENT
#1 Doctor Recommended Lifestyle Change!
Acid Reflux Treatment & GERD Treatment : Acid Reflux or GERD is an increasingly common condition where stomach acids back up into the esophagus causing damage. It can be extremely painful and linger on and on. However, we believe that with your doctor’s guidance and simple lifestyle changes you can significantly improve the symptoms of acid reflux! Are you disturbed and irritated by the acidic fluids that create havoc in your digestive system? Do you experience frequent burning sensations or heartburn or even chest pains because of this scenario? If so, you may be suffering from acid reflux. The lower esophageal sphincter (LES) or muscle serves as a ring-like doorway for food to pass down from the esophagus into the stomach. It has the natural ability to open for food to pass into the stomach and tightens to keep food in the stomach, acids included.
Many things such as certain foods, medications, or hereditary factors can cause the LES muscle to relax, not allowing it to close securely to seal the acids in the stomach as your food is being digested. This relaxation causes the acids to easily rise up into the esophagus and result in heartburn (that painful burning sensation in your chest) and can also induce coughing and impaired breathing.
Lying down flat after a meal then allows an easy passage for the stomach acids rise up to the esophagus and often results in significant pain and suffering. It’s not a simple situation that you can just deal with overnight (or continue to ignore). When you experience frequent heartburn (more than two times a week), it is often diagnose by your doctor as Acid Reflux or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (also called GERD). Only the expert advice of doctors can determine the extent of the damage caused to the esophagus by this constant reflux of acids.
Now, how can you remedy the problem? First, review your triggers with your healthcare professional. They may be certain foods, obesity, current medications you are taking or simply heredity. Each person may have different triggers. A daily journal is often helpful to provide insights into your recurrent triggers. After an evaluation by your doctor he or she may simply prescribe lifestyle changes as the first line of treatment for your disease.
