Gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic digestive disease that occurs when stomach acid or, occasionally, bile flows back (refluxes) into your food pipe (esophagus). The backwash of acid irritates the lining of your esophagus and causes GERD signs and symptoms. A typical symptom is heartburn.


GERD signs and symptoms include:
•A burning sensation in your chest (heartburn), sometimes spreading to the throat, along with a sour taste in your mouth
•Chest pain
•Difficulty swallowing
•Dry cough
•Hoarseness or sore throat
•Regurgitation of food or sour liquid (acid reflux)
•Sensation of a lump in the throat


GERD is caused by frequent acid reflux — the backup of stomach acid or bile into the esophagus.



Diagnosis:- 

A detailed history is vital for an accurate diagnosis. Useful investigations may include ambulatory Esophageal pH Monitoring, barium swallow X-rays, esophageal manometry, and Esophagogastroduodenoscopy



Treatment:-
Homoeopathy is very proficient in managing all the symptoms of Acid Reflux and furthermore plays a vital role in preventing relapse of the condition. Homeopathic medicines will help decrease acidic build-up, rebalance pH by cleansing and restoring the digestive system, and strengthen the lower esophageal sphincter. Homeopathic treatment will make you feel like a new person by making you free of acid reflux, GERD. 

Homeopathic treatment is natural, safe, gentle and without side-effects. Another impressive thing about homeopathy is that people on multiple medications can safely take Homeopathic medicines. 


Homeopathic drugs are non-habit forming and have no addictive characteristics. Homeopathy has an exceptional proven safety record with the FDA with 200 years of clinical effectiveness.
Since homeopathy treats in totality, it leads to a permanent long-lasting cure, rather than a temporary suppression of symptoms, and you will be able to enjoy all kinds of food to the fullest.
