Common Diseases > Gastric Reflux

Gastritis and heartburn or gastroesophageal reflux (GR) is is a common occurrence that happens occasionally throughout life and is often caused by an excess of rich or hard to digest food. In some circumstances the problem can become chronic and be associated with stomach ulcers and other digestive problems like hiatal hernias and peptic ulcers.
  • Gastritis which has some of the symptoms similar to heartburn is an inflammation of the stomach lining
  • heartburn is the occasional occurrence of gastric reflux
  • gastric reflux as a dis - ease is when the problem becomes a chronic and regular occurrence. It is when the lower esophageal sphincter does not close properly and stomach contents travel back up into the esophagus causing burning and inflammation of sensitive oesophageal tissue.

Heartburn when it occurs on rare occasions is simply an annoyance to put up with for a few hours. Sometimes it can be nauseating and antacids like mylanta provide effective emergency relief.

Gastritis and gastric reflux disease is symptomatic of an out of balance digestive system often caused by some of the foods being eaten, weak digestion or overeating. A consultation with a natural health practitioner may help to find a natural solution and improve your diet.

An alternative to a lifetime of taking antacids and a common, inexpensive and effective treatment is to take a dessert spoon of apple cider vinegar (mixed with water) before breakfast daily.
