Acid Reflux

Acid reflux, also called Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease or GORD or GERD, is a common problem.In the UK approximately 30% of the population suffer from symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease and a quarter of these seek medical help. Over 1 1/2 million people require long term medication including powerful antacid proton pump inhibitor drugs. It is caused by the backflow of liquid from your stomach into your oesophagus (gullet). The stomach makes acid for digestion, but the lining of the lining of the oesophagus is not built to tolerate acid.
