Hello and welcome to HealingWell, I am Kitt.
What is GERD?
GERD stands for Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease. "Gastro" refers to the stomach. Esophageal refers to the esophagus , the tube that carries food from the mouth to the stomach. Reflux means to back-up or flow backwards. GERD is a condition in which acid, bile and partially-digested food in the stomach back up into the esophagus
If you have not seen a Gastroenterologist, now may be the time to make an appointment to see if you have GERD or something else going on.
