Acid reflux disease or GERD is a chronic digestive disorder where acid from the stomach makes its way up into the esophagus.
GERD occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter–a muscle at the end of the esophagus, doesn’t open or close like it should.
As a result, GERD sufferers often experience unpleasant symptoms such as heartburn and acid indigestion.
Doctors often recommend a change to eating habits as a method of treatment. This is where our dietitian and nutritionists come in.
