Heartburn, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is the result of weakness in the muscle at the end of your esophagus, the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), sometimes caused by a hiatal hernia. When your LES is weakened, it allows stomach acid to “back up” into your esophagus.
How Naturopathy can help to treat Heartburn:
Identify and address underlying factors in your lifestyle (e.g., diet high in fatty, spicy or other heartburn aggravating foods, eating habits that aggravate heartburn, tobacco use, sedative or antidepressant use) or general health (e.g., pregnancy, obesity, asthma, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure) that may be contributing to your heartburn (GERD) symptoms.
Protect and soothe the tissue of the esophagus using herbal medicines and nutritional supplements.
