GERD | GORD – gastroesophageal reflux disease
The Other Option’s DIGESTIVE REMEDY™ Siberian Pine Nut Oil offers natural support for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD|GORD) symptoms.
GERD is a condition where gastric juices travel back or “reflux” from the stomach into the oesophagus (gullet or swallowing tube) causing burning, discomfort, pain and sometimes damage to the mucosal lining.
What causes GERD? Stress and low levels of stomach acid inhibit digestion and are major causes of GERD. Many people with GERD are under the misconception that they are OVER producing stomach acid, but more often they are not producing ENOUGH stomach acid. When food is not digested effectively, it ferments in the stomach forming gasses and alcohols.
The gas build-up creates pressure within the stomach, forcing digestive juices to flow back into the oesophagus. Chronic GERD can eventually cause damage to the oesophagus resulting in conditions like hiatus hernia and Barrett’s Oesophagus.
Other causes of GERD are a defective lower oesophageal sphincter muscle, diet, lifestyle, insufficient nutrients and pregnancy. If you suffer from GERD please see CAUSES OF STOMACH PROBLEMS and the effects of bad digestion. GERD | GORD signs and symptoms Common symptoms associated with GERD are chest pain which can feel like ‘heartburn’ (a burning sensation or pain behind the breastbone or in the pit of the stomach that can extend all the way up to the throat), difficulty swallowing, dry cough, a sensation of a lump in the throat, nausea, regurgitation of a bitter fluid, sensitive teeth, and a sore throat.
The symptoms indicated are also symptoms of other serious health issues. If symptoms persist please consult your healthcare professional.
