Acid Reflux Disease – GERD

According to the American College of Gastroenterology, more than 60 million people experience heartburn from acid reflux at least once a month in the United States, more than 15 million Americans have symptoms daily, and about 20 percent have GERD.

Heartburn may be a sign that something is wrong in your stomach or esophagus. This can be caused by a variety of different factors. Acid reflux is a condition that causes stomach acid to flow up into your esophagus where it can cause heartburn or trouble swallowing. It may also cause GERD, an even more serious type of acid reflux disease that can damage some areas of your esophagus.

Diet plays a major role in controlling acid reflux symptoms and is the first line of therapy used for people with GERD. Dietary changes, such as avoiding fried foods, may improve acid reflux. Nutritional improvements may also boost overall digestive health, which is important to immune functioning because an estimated 70 percent to 80 percent of immune cells live in the gut.

People who want to try and control acid reflux without medication or surgery are better off trying lifestyle changes. This list of foods is high in fiber and water and higher on the pH scale that may help control acid. Here are some foods that help control acid reflux: Whole grains, Root vegetables, Green vegetables, Bananas, Nuts, Cauliflower, Melons, etc.
