Hello and welcome to HealingWell. I am glad you have found our online community. It is a great place to connect with others traveling the same road as you are.
I am going to post a link to you from our resources. The link will take you to Mayo Clinic's site so please take the time to read through it as the information should help you understand GERD much better. You will also find a wealth of info re treatments and drugs; lifestyle and home remedies and alternative treatments.
Once you have read through this link please feel comfortable asking questions and sharing how you are doing with us in the forum.
