How to Cure GERD Permanently?

How to Cure GERD Permanently?

Gastroesophageal reflux disease or GERD occurs when acid-containing contents in the stomach leak back up into the esophagus, the tube connecting your throat to your stomach.

Symptoms of GERD

The main symptoms of GERD are persistent heartburn and acid regurgitation. Some people with this condition don’t experience heartburn. Instead, they experience trouble swallowing, pain in the chest, and hoarseness in the morning. You may feel like you have food stuck in your throat, or like you are choking or your throat is tight. GERD can also cause a dry cough and bad breath.

The Four Treatment Approaches for GERD

1. Lifestyle and Dietary Changes 

Using HCG Diet

Lifestyle and dietary changes are the first steps in treating GERD. Certain foods make the reflux worse. Recommendations to help relieve symptoms include:

  • Lose weight if you are obese or overweight.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Do not lie down immediately after a meal.
  • Elevate the level of your head when you lie down.
  • Avoid foods that increase the level of acid in your stomach.
  • Avoid foods that decrease the pressure in the lower esophagus, such as alcohol, fatty foods, and peppermint.
  • Avoid foods that affect peristalses such as alcohol, coffee, and acidic liquids.
  • Avoid foods that slow gastric emptying.
  • Avoid large meals.

2. Medication 

Your doctor may recommend certain medications if lifestyle and dietary changes do not work. There are two categories of medications for this condition. One lessens the level of acid in your stomach and one increases the level of movement in the upper gastrointestinal tract. 

Medications recommended may include:

3. Endoscopic Therapy 

This therapy is an option to address GERD. This can mean shorter treatment time, less pain, and faster recovery compared to laparoscopic surgery. However, there are still clinical trials testing the efficacy of endoscopic therapy for GERD.

4. Surgery 

You may be a candidate for surgery if your symptoms do not improve with lifestyle changes or drug therapy. Surgery is an alternative to a lifetime of taking medications for some patients. An anti-reflux barrier must be strengthened during surgery for reflux disease.

Changing Eating Habits to Improve GERD

If you have GERD and you are overweight or have obesity, your doctor may suggest losing weight to reduce your symptoms. Your doctor can recommend a healthy eating plan to help you lose weight.

HCG diet is a diet program that helps you lose weight by changing your habits of eating. HCG is a 500-calorie diet, a healthy and effective way to drop pounds. Here are some of the benefits of the HCG diet:

  • The HCG formula combined with a very low-calorie diet resets your hypothalamus to help release from 2000 to 4000 calories each day from the abnormal fat stores in your body.
  • The HCG diet targets abnormal fat and will help your skin retract as you lose the fat.
  • The HCG diet will make your body undergo some amazing transformations by losing fat weight and not muscle. 
  • After you stop taking the HCG you will find that your appetite has changed also. The new eating behavior will become part of your new lifestyle.
  • Besides the overall health of a person, HCG also helps normalize cholesterol levels, the thyroid gland, and balance hormones while rebuilding the adrenal glands.
