With life becoming increasingly sedentary and our food more refined, the incidence of GERD is rising.
What it is
“GERD is a chronic digestive disorder in which acidic contents of the stomach flows back up into the esophagus. The esophagus carries food from the mouth to the stomach. When the muscle towards the end of the esophagus does not close properly, it allows for the stomach contents to rise back into the esophagus hence causing discomfort.”
