Summer Accardo about this book: As a registered nurse, I've seen countless patients struggle with acid reflux, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Acid reflux affects people of all ages, and it can even affect infants. Although medications such as proton pump inhibitors and acid blocking medications can help relieve symptoms, they sometimes cause side effects. Fortunately, there are a number of home remedies and natural treatments that can help reduce the symptoms of acid reflux disease. Common symptoms of acid reflux disease include heartburn, coughing, constant throat clearing, hoarseness and chest discomfort. Wheezing, nasal congestion, nausea and a sore throat are also common in those with acid reflux.
Acid reflux occurs when your lower esophageal sphincter valve fails to work properly. Subsequently, acid from your stomach gets released, and travels up into your esophagus, resulting in annoying symptoms. Factors that raise the risk for acid reflux include obesity, smoking, drinking alcohol, eating spicy foods, eating onions, garlic, chocolate, peppermint, citrus fruit and drinking coffee. The book, Acid Reflux Relief: Natural Remedies offers home remedies, natural treatments, dietary suggestions and lifestyle modification tips to help you live more comfortably and symptom-free from acid reflux.
