Heartburn & acid reflux
What is GERD
Stomach Acid Reflux & Heartburn & Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is one of the most commonly experienced digestive issues. The prevalence of GERD is about 15% to 25%. Typical symptoms include heartburn and regurgitation.
Typically, these symptoms occur after eating, especially when you eat spicy or greasy food, chocolate or citrus fruit, or drink alcohol. Sometimes GERD may cause a chronic cough.
Daily Care for GERD
If you want to recover from GERD, your lifestyle is also important.
It is best to avoid greasy or spicy food, alcohol, and smoking. Staying in a good mood, receiving good quality sleep, and taking regular exercise are daily habits that are highly beneficial and well worth keeping in mind.
Treat GERD with TCM
Many international journals have shown, through evidence-based research, that Chinese medicine and acupuncture can be effective at treating GERD.
A well-trained Chinese medicine doctor may prescribe medicine or use acupuncture to regulate your gastro function and boost your body’s self-healing ability. You should feel conclusive improvement after each treatment.
