What is gastro-esophageal reflux?
If heartburn begins to occur on a daily basis you need to see your Physician for advice. Gastro-oesophageal reflux is a condition where the lower oesophageal sphincter (the muscular ring at the lower end of the oesophagus) is abnormally relaxed and allows the stomach's acidic contents to flow back or 'reflux' into the gullet (oesophagus). It can also cause heartburn and pain in the chest. Gastro-oesophageal reflux is a common condition and the most frequent cause of indigestion in the world.
Oesophagitis is inflammation of the inner lining of the oesophagus caused by repeated episodes of gastro-oesophageal reflux.
The symptoms of gastro-esophageal reflux oesophagitis?
A painful or burning sensation in the upper abdomen or chest, sometimes radiating to the back (heartburn). The acid reflux may reach the pharynx (throat) and mouth. It is sour and may burn. A small number of patients have difficulties breathing and suffer from hoarseness because the refluxed fluid irritates the larynx and respiratory tract. Excess belching is common.
When does gastro-oesophageal reflux occur?
Symptoms typically occur after over eating a large or fatty meal or drinking alcohol. Lying down, bending over or bending and lifting can all cause reflux? It is made worse by smoking. The frequency with which the symptoms occur varies. For most people, they are rare but weekly and daily episodes of refluxes are not uncommon sometimes even 10 times a day.
Does gastro-oesophageal reflux affect your health?
It is an unpleasant condition that can have a big influence on your lifestyle. Many people feel that their quality of life is lowered by the symptoms. Prolonged exposure to refluxed acid leads to oesophagitis (inflammation of the oesophagus). Long-standing oesophagitis may be complicated by the formation of scar tissue that contracts and results in a narrowing (stricture) in the affected part of the oesophagus. This can make it difficult or even impossible to swallow. It is a serious condition that requires urgent assessment and treatment, but, fortunately, this complication is relatively rare. It can cause ulceration leading to bleeding and an iron deficiency, which may develop into anemia due to a chronic blood loss. Chinese Master's MEDICATION can cure your problem.
How does stomach acid travel up the oesophagus?
The trouble is caused by the faulty oesophageal sphincter, the muscular ring at the lower end of the oesophagus, near the diaphragm. The sphincter is designed to prevent the stomach contents from flowing upward - it functions as one-way valve. If the sphincter does not work properly, stomach acid flows into the oesophagus. The reflux tendency increases when the stomach contains a lot of gastric juice or food and when there is increased pressure in or on the stomach. This is a small problem and not to worry a few of Chinese Master's herbal medicine could help it.
Which conditions can cause gastro-oesophageal reflux?
In many cases, the disorder cannot be attributed to any specific cause but the following conditions can contribute to the problem.
The stomach pokes through the diaphragm, preventing the muscle fibers of the diaphragm from closing the lower end of the oesophagus. The oesophagus remains wide open, which allows stomach acid to get into the oesophagus.
If the person is overweight the excessive fat in the abdominal cavity increases the pressure inside it. This causes the contents of the stomach to travel up into the gullet. Loss of weight reduces stomach acid reflux.
Because the uterus increases in size during pregnancy, it presses on the stomach, creating higher pressure inside it, which increases the tendency to reflux. In addition, hormonal changes lead to relaxation of the oesophageal sphincter during pregnancy.
The more the stomach is stretched by food, the higher the tendency to reflux. Eating fatty meals as fat delays gastric emptying also increases the tendency. Try to avoid large rich meals, particularly in the evening and this will reduce the tendency to reflux.
Chocolate, peppermint, coffee, fruit juices, sour, hot spicy food and alcohol and over eating prevent the oesophageal sphincter from working properly.
Tobacco prevents the oesophageal sphincter from working in order, reduces the rate at which the stomach empties and increases stomach acid production.
Constipation increases the tendency to reflux by raising pressure inside the stomach cavity.
The tendency to reflux increases when you are lying down. This is just due to gravity. A simple way to change that is to use a pillow under the mattress or to raise the head of your bed by 3 inches with blocks or a house brick under the bed frame.
Gastro-oesophageal reflux disorders diagnosed?
The symptoms of gastro-oesophageal reflux may be so obvious that no tests are needed. If the doctor is in doubt, or if the symptoms are very troublesome, a gastroscopy will be considered. During the procedure oesophagitis, hiatus hernias, peptic ulcers and other conditions can be either found or ruled out. Another possibility is to measure the acidity in the lower end of the oesophagus during a 24-hour period. This will give an indication of how often and how long the reflux episodes last. Gastro-oesophageal reflux can resemble those of a peptic ulcer, chest pains (angina pectoris), muscle pains, back problems, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, gallstones, pancreatic disease etc. These conditions will sometimes have to be ruled out before the diagnosis can be made.
