What is GERD?
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is also called acid reflux and is a digestive disease in which stomach acid frequently flows back to the esophagus. This condition irritates the lining of the esophagus. This is common in many people who experience it from time to time and though some people can manage the discomfort arising out of this condition with lifestyle changes, some need medication. It is found that people with asthma are at higher risk of developing this condition. It can affect people of all ages and gender.
Signs and Symptoms:
- A burning sensation in the chest
- Difficulty in swallowing
- A sensation of a lump in the throat
- Disrupted sleep
- Chronic cough
Why choose Homeopathy?
Homeopathy treatment is an effective treatment method for gastroesophageal reflux disease because it helps in preventing relapse after the proper remedy is given. The antacid gels and medicines usually given in the conventional medicine systems have side effects whereas the homeopathic medicines are natural and safe which can be administered to patients of all ages without any fear. The homeopathic treatment also helps in restoring the digestive system thereby reducing the recurrence of the condition.
