Acid Regurgitation, Acid Reflux, or GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), is when the esophagus becomes irritated due to excess stomach acid splashing upward into the base of the esophagus. There is typically discomfort in the chest, which is why GERD is often referred to as heartburn.
How can acupuncture help?
Acupuncture can help by both stimulating the nervous system and balancing it. By doing this, it allows for the abdominal sphincter muscles to work effectively at keeping the stomach acid out of the esophagus. Acupuncture also helps to regulate the levels of stomach acid and protects the internal lining of the stomach and esophagus.
