GI Disorder

Take Charge of Your Digestive Health Today.

When you have heartburn and acid reflux, your lower esophageal sphincter opens when it shouldn’t. This causes acid from your stomach to wash back up into your esophagus. Over time, the constant backwash of stomach acid can irritate and damage your esophagus. If you have acid reflux disease and your symptoms like chest pain, acid taste in your mouth, or burning in the back of your throat come back or get worse, it could be a sign that your treatment needs to be adjusted.

A weakened lower esophageal sphincter can be a result.

When you have acid reflux, this means that something in your body isn’t working the way it should. For example, your lower esophageal sphincter might be weak or something could be putting extra pressure on your stomach.

Can gastrointestinal diseases be prevented?

Many diseases of the colon and rectum can be prevented or minimized by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, practicing good bowel habits, and getting screened for cancer.
Ask our doctors how can you change your lifestyle and how to eat smaller meals. Ask how to control your weight because carrying extra pounds puts pressure on your stomach. In our offices, we have certain methods that can help you lose weight.

  • Resting and drinking plenty of fluids.
  • aking over-the-counter medications to ease symptoms (for example, laxatives for constipation).

  • Following the BRAT diet – bananas, rice, applesauce and toast – all of which are easy on the stomach and beneficial in their own way. At the same time, avoid things like dairy, grease, and spices, as they can aggravate your digestive system.
