Signs of GERD

GERD or GastroEsophageal Reflux Disease is easily a very uncomfortable and common disease. It affects many from infancy on up. This is caused by stomach acid entering your esophagus and can be brought on by a variety of foods and drinks. GERD also happens when the valve between the esophagus and the stomach becomes too weak to keep the stomach acid from getting through. This is more serious and can mean you’re getting acid reflux a couple of times a week instead of every now and then. By watching your diet and food intake, you can help to combat GERD and the discomfort that comes along with it.
