Acid reflux is a common digestive disorder characterised by symptoms such as heartburn, acid indigestion, nausea and more. It is caused when the acid produced by the stomach flows back up into the esophagus. Frequent reflux can give rise to Gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD). Delaying treatment of GERD can lead to serious complications such as narrowing of the esophagus, esophageal ulcer or a condition called Barrett's Esophagus (BE) which is a risk foresophageal cancer. Find out how acupuncture, acupressure and TCM dietary therapy can help in the management of acid reflux and GERD.
