If you experience heartburn, bile in the throat, or wake in the middle of the night from the pain in your chest, you may have GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease). There is a holistic approach for curing GERD, natural treatment.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a chronic and advanced form of acid reflux. It is a disease caused by the rise of gastric juices or abnormal reflux from the stomach into the esophagus.
Reasons for GERD
That burning sensation in your throat and gut comes from the acids in your stomach. Mainly, hydrochloric acid! It's no wonder you hurt!
There's a little valve at the entrance into the stomach that controls the flow of food into the stomach. It also acts to stop the flow of the stomach's acid from backing up into the esophagus. Sometimes that little valve just doesn't work well.
The hydrochloric acid that sits in the esophagus is the cause of that heartburn, that burning in your chest. When I would get that fire in my chest I just wanted yell out, " Stop this burning pain!"
Sometimes I felt it in my throat at other times it was sitting right around my breastbone. I knew that if I left it untreated it could develop into something more serious like GERD.
When the lining of the esophagus becomes inflamed, it's called esophagitis and that too can be the cause of chest pains. Esophagitis can also show itself by not being able to swallow correctly.
There are many other symptoms that will alert you to GERD. Bad breath, thank God I didn't have that, constantly clearing of your throat, trouble swallowing are just some of the symptoms you might have that give you a wake up call and warn that you might have GERD.
If you have any of these symptoms, you should really have it looked at. If you don't, you can get ulcers in your esophagus or a narrowing of the esophagus itself. Acid reflux and GERD can be cured without expensive drugs with a natural treatment.
