A few weeks ago we all got together for a chat re GERD and Heart disease, as it seems many people with heart disease also have GERD. Well, I saw this article and based on our discussion, I felt that I should post it here for you all to read. Wishing you all the best!
"Heartburn occurs when stomach acid backs up into the esophagus, causing chest pain. Gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD, as it's called technically, has nothing to do with the heart ... or does it?"
