Thanks for having visited this site. You have seen, that gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) attracts our attention and matters, because it affects 80% of the population in the Western civilisation.
GERD results from hereditary (genetics) and life style induced failure of the anti reflux mechanism (lower esophageal sphincter; LES) in the lower end of the esophagus (gullet).
As a consequence gastric acid juice returns into the esophagus causing symptoms (heartburn, coughing, asthma), inflammation (esophagitis) and increased cancer risk in those, who develop Barerett’s esophagus (BE). BE results from reflux of gastric juice and represents a 0.5%-1.7% annual cancer risk.
Therefore this site informs you how to deal with those aspects of GERD, which impair the life quality, productivity and wellbeing:
the symptoms (heartburn, coughing, wheezing, asthma; fullness, gas bloat)
the cancer risk in those with Barrett’s esophagus (BE).
Here you learned that GERD management gets easy when you focus on the cause of the disease, i.e the failure of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) and its loosened anchorage within the diaphragm (hiatal hernia).
You red about my straight forward, step by step, accurate, cause oriented GERD & BE management to
You also saw, that the management of GERD includes life style measures (nutrition, sports, wellness) and reflux surgery. Transient medical therapy serves to bridge until the definitive treatment (life style or reflux surgery).
May our informations help you to manage your GERD and Barrett’s esophagus and to restore your life quality.
