An estimated 10 percent of the U.S. population suffers from Chronic Heartburn, also known as Acid Reflux or GERD. Many people simply dismiss this condition--the symptoms of which can include sleeplessness, chronic sore throat, heartburn, hoarseness, and dental problems--as something to learn to live with. Recent studies, however, have shown that GERD can have serious effects such as an increased risk for esophagitis, ulcers of the throat, and even cancer of the esophagaus, catapulting this condition into the media spotlight. One of the first books to demystify this condition for the lay reader, Coping with chronic Heartburn offers help, relief, and advice to sufferers of GERD, including: *When to consult a doctor *Which tests you may have to undergo *Effective self-care treatments such as dietary change and over the counter medications *Promising alternative and herbal treatments *Details on the latest prevention and treatment developments, including a new surgical procedure with a 96% success rate.

Symptoms include flashbacks, emotional numbness, acute anxiety, and physical reactions such as increased heart rate and nausea.

250+ Classy, Easy Low Acid Meal Plan Including Vegan & Gluten-Free; Prevent and Heal GERD & LPR, Inflammation amidst other disorders Acid reflux is caused by a large amount of stomach acid backflowing into the esophagus. When your lower esophageal sphincter (LES) weakens due to various circumstances, By eating a high-fat diet regularly, acid can flow back into your esophagus, producing acid reflux. As a result, acid reflux causes multiple symptoms, the most well-known of which are heartburn and indigestion. While excessive acidity in the stomach is typical in everyone and seldom causes significant health problems when it occurs regularly, serious health problems might arise if high acidity persists for an extended length of time. In many cases, if left untreated and without control mechanisms in place, these health concerns will result in hospitalization or even death. Chronic long-term heartburn, also known as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), Barnett's esophagus, and esophageal issues, can result from unmanaged and untreated chronic acidity in the most part extreme cases. Some of the most dangerous illnesses result from ignoring acid reflux symptoms, particularly after large meals. Backflow of acid from your stomach destroys your esophagus over time, causing erosion of the layers lining the organ's walls. This inflammation frequently causes esophagitis, a painful swelling of the esophagus accompanied by an unpleasant swallowing sensation. Furthermore, the most frequent symptom of an irritated esophagus is esophageal ulcers. GERD is the leading cause of these ulcers in the esophageal lining. Furthermore, difficult swallowing, nausea, and chest discomfort lead to a lack of sleep, perpetuating many of these symptoms by your body's inability to receive the rest it needs to overcome. Would you please consult a doctor as soon as these symptoms appear so that you can be offered medicine to address the symptoms before they develop into more serious, long-term problems? When coping with an ulcer, obtaining medical care is vital; ulcers are exceedingly damaging to the lining of your organ and may be quite persistent if left untreated and allowed time to spread. Furthermore, suppose you continue to eat a very acidic diet as you did before the ulcer. In that case, this contributing factor will further exacerbate the ulcer's development and some of your other symptoms. Scarring of the lining of your esophagus causes scar tissue to grow up over time, narrowing the esophagus ultimately. Swallowing food and drinks will be considerably more difficult as a consequence, and we may require surgery to enlarge the esophagus. Strictures are small regions of your esophagus that will undoubtedly cause severe weight loss and dehydration. Avoiding a procedure by treating excessive acidity with medication is preferable; but, once these strictures obstruct your esophageal routes.
