Acid reflux or gerd (gastroesophageal reflux disease) is a condition in which fluid splashes up from the stomach into the esophagus. This fluid contains mostly acid with some pepsin and bile. All three of these fluids are potentially dangerous to the sensitive esophageal tissue, with acid being the most harmful. This refluxed fluid can inflame and damage the lining of the esophagus (esophagitis). If this condition is allowed to become chronic, it can in time develop into Barrett’s esophagus, which is the precursor of esophageal cancer.
Natural Heartburn Cures. People often have heartburn (a burning sensation deep in the chest) along with indigestion. Stomach acids rising into the esophagus / oesophagus cause heartburn.
Heartburn, associated with stress and spicy foods, can be very painful. Prescriptions and over-the-counter drugs may relieve the symptoms temporarily, but they in turn create more acid in the body, which then becomes a vicious cycle.
Home Gout Remedies. Why They Are Needed. Gout is a complex form of arthritis characterized by sudden, severe attacks of pain, redness and tenderness in joints, often the joint at the base of the big toe. These attacks can happen over and over unless gout is treated. In time they can damage joints, tendons, and other tissues. Men are more likely to get gout, but women become increasingly susceptible to gout after menopause.
