Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) occurs when material from your stomach or small intestine repeatedly enters your esophagus. Some individuals have GERD for many years. Complications, such as serious damage to the esophagus, respiratory diseases, and ear, nose, and throat conditions can occur, but are more likely with older people.

Nutrition
Changes in your diet can help decrease the irritation of GERD. Digestive enzymes may help if you have heartburn. Avoid sweets, oils, fats, and caffeine.

Herbs
Herbs may be very effective at healing esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus).
Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra): an anti-inflammatory and antispasmodic, relieves pain in the gastrointestinal tract. Do not take licorice if you have high blood pressure or use it for a prolonged period of time.
Slippery elm (Ulmus fulva): protects irritated tissues and promotes their healing.
Valerian (Valeriana officinalis): bitter, sedative, especially for anxiety or depression or poor digestion
Wild Yam (Dioscorea villosa): antispasmodic, sedative, calming, especially for disturbed sleep
Linden flowers (Tilia cordata): antispasmodic, mild diuretic, gentle bitter, especially for dyspepsia (gas)
