  • Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease

    Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the tube connecting your mouth and stomach (esophagus). This backwash (acid reflux) can irritate the lining of your esophagus. GERD is caused by frequent acid reflux. When you swallow, a circular band of muscle around the bottom of your esophagus (lower esophageal sphincter) relaxes to allow food and liquid to flow into your stomach.

  • Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) - Acid Reflux and Diet

    Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is when your lower esophageal sphincter doesn’t close properly, meaning that often times, contents from your stomach can go back up into your esophagus.


    Common food triggers of GERD include spicy foods, high fat foods, alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, citrus fruits and juices, as well as mint flavorings.
