The transoral incisionless fundoplication is a minimally invasive treatment for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) that is performed in the outpatient setting. The TIF procedure is performed from inside the patient’s stomach without incisions.
An optical camera device was shoved up my nose and down my throat for good measure; I was sent home with some Nexium pills meant to re-balance the acid in my stomach and restore a state of stomach serenity. Smokers are more prone to heartburn, and symptoms can improve within just a few days of quitting. The same applies to excess alcohol. This is because drinking and smoking can relax the ring of muscle separating your food pipe and your stomach, allowing stomach acid to reflux back into the windpipe.
Morphological examination of the hematoxylin-eosin-stained slides revealed that the isolation procedure had successfully yielded whole-gland preparations and that parietal cells were present in the gastric glands. Immunohistochemical analysis showed that the isolated glands contained eNOS-immunoreactive cells (Fig. 1), which agrees with results obtained using other types of mucosal preparations .

These foods are often alkaline in nature, so I suppose the assumption is that they help to balance out the acid you’re combatting. At this point, I began to do a little research for myself. It seemed sensible to conclude that diet hugely impacts GERD.
Wolfing down a sandwich at lunch while feverishly checking Twitter and Instagram on your phone does nothing to bring respite to your GERD. You need to take a moment to sit still and let your food settle before getting back to work. If possible, try and incorporate a short walk around the block into your post-eating routine. The idea is to calm yourself and your stomach down during mealtimes, because it’s all too easy to get caught up in the momentum of stuffing your face.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can be thought of as chronic symptoms of heartburn. The term refers to the frequent backing up (reflux) of stomach contents (food, acid, and/or bile) into the esophagus — the tube that connects the throat to the stomach. GERD also refers to the array of medical complications, some serious, that can arise from this reflux. Yep, I’ve been diagnosed with GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), the digestive disorder commonly associated with heartburn and acid reflux. Apparently I’m not alone, with around 20 to 30 percent of the U.S. population recorded as having GERD issues, often on a daily basis.
Cue the heartburn, the associated ailments, and, if left untreated long enough, the more grisly complications. At the end of the esophagus the bolus will encounter the lower esophageal sphincter. This sphincter keeps the harmful acids of the stomach out of the esophagus. However, in many people this sphincter is leaky, which allows stomach acid to reflux, or creep up, the esophagus.

I’ve never bothered with that, being that I’m quite capable of remembering what I ate for lunch, and whether or not I was fine with it. But, you know, embrace whatever works for you. For dinner, lean proteins and vegetables are a solid choice, often paired with something like wild rice, quinoa, or beans (of the dried heirloom variety, not those nasty, metallic-tasting things slopping around in cans). Most root vegetables are GERD-compliant, too, so just roast them up in some coconut oil (which some people allege can help sooth a sore throat as well). While certain devilish foods like tomatoes and chocolate have been proven to aggravate GERD, other less-heralded foods can become your allies.
