Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) also called acid reflux is a digestive disease in which the stomach acid or bile irritates the food pipe lining. It is a chronic disease and acid reflux or heart burn twice a week may indicate GERD.
- Chronic or burning pain in the chest or abdomen
- Dry or severe cough
- Recurrent vomiting or nausea
- Bitter or sour taste in the mouth
- Feeling full too fast
Homeopathy is very effective in managing all the symptoms of acid reflux and prevents any relapse. Homeopathic medicines decrease acidic buildup, rebalance pH by cleansing and restoring the digestive system and strengthen the esophageal sphincter. Homeopathic medicines are non-habit forming and are not addictive.
GERD can be a problem if it's not treated because, over time, the reflux of stomach acid damages the tissue lining the esophagus, causing inflammation and pain. In adults, long-lasting, untreated GERD can lead to severe damage of the esophagus and sometimes even cancer
