GOT GERD?

COOL THE BURN – HOW?

OVERVIEW

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when stomach acid frequently

flows back into the tube connecting our mouth and stomach (esophagus). This

backwash (acid reflux) can irritate the lining of your esophagus.

Most people can manage the discomfort of GERD with lifestyle changes and

over-the-counter medications. But some people with GERD may need stronger

medications or surgery to ease symptoms.
