Simple Steps To Help Against GERDS – Acid Reflux Disease

There are many people who are diagnosed with GERD that is also known as acid reflux disease. This is a disease in which fluid from the stomach returns to the esophagus. This fluid contains stomach acid and can inflame and damage the lining of the esophagus. Fortunately, GERB treatment is available. Changing your diet, taking the right medication, and changing your sleep habits can reduce GERD symptoms.

Take the right medication:

Do not take regular antacid tablets. They will only help for a very short time. There are two types of drugs on the market specifically designed to help relieve the symptoms of GERD. The first drug specifically designed to treat acid-related disorders was Tagamet. These products and the like (Zantac, Axid & Pepcid) are designed to neutralize stomach acid. 

However, you must understand that these medicines also create severe diseases such as vomiting, cancer, and many more. Many companies claim that our lawyers promise to represent anyone involved in the unforeseen event of a Ranitidine cancer lawsuit or Zantac cancer lawsuit after using the drug to resolve their problem.

New drugs have been developed which work differently from the acid neutralizers mentioned above. These drugs, known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), actually block the production of antacids in the stomach. Brands like Prilosec, Nexium, Protonix, and Prevacid are all PPI drugs and usually include a doctor's script.


Some foods can increase GERD. They reduce pressure on the lower esophageal muscles and cause "reflux". Avoiding the following foods such as chocolate, mint, alcohol, fatty foods, drinks that contain caffeine, and even smoking will help. Alternatively, chewing gum can help reduce acidity in the esophagus by increasing saliva production. Once swallowed, saliva helps neutralize acids in the esophagus.
