At our clinic, we take a different approach to reflux and GERD than ‘conventional’ medicine specialists. Rather than simply addressing the symptoms, we work to uncover the root causes of your reflux, and examine the impact that your diet and lifestyle have on your gut health.
GERD is a condition caused by the frequent backflow of stomach acid and contents into the esophagus, often causing discomfort. GERD is a widespread condition, affecting 10-20% of individuals in Western countries.
Reflux esophagitis is a condition that can occur as a complication of GERD, causing inflammation and damage to the lining of the esophagus. Another complication of GERD is Barrett’s esophagus, which is characterized by changes in the cells of the lower esophagus and can potentially lead to esophageal cancer.
