Acid reflux disease

There are a large number of people suffering from acid reflux or the GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease). This usually happens when the LES or the lower esophageal sphincter does not function properly. The contents of the stomach, particularly the liquid, go back to the esophagus and one of the ingredients is acid. The liquid contains pepsin and stomach acids. 
The stomach has its own protection from the acid, but esophagus is not made up of the same components of the stomach and the acid will burn the esophagus lining, and the outcome is you will suffer heartburn. While experiencing heartburn once in a while is not a cause for worry, but if you have the acid reflux experience more than two times a week, it's time to consult a doctor.

Acid reflux can be very harmful and once the esophagus' lining is burned, you should take medication once you've been examined and diagnosed with acid reflux to prevent further complications. The acid reflux is usually treated with antacids, but some people complain that it only makes the situation worse. If you use antacids, the body will only produce more acids to compensate the decrease in body acids, and taking antacids on a regular basis has its side affects. The effects of antacids on heartburn is short lived and if you are still in a situation where you are producing acid the situation can get worse throughout the day.
