Weight Gain and GERD

Acid reflux is often just one of many digestive symptoms that can result from poor digestion, food intolerances, poor food choices, chronic stress, gut infections, and other factors. Up to 15 million people have a condition called acid reflux or GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease.)

Stomach acid is required for good digestion. Poor digestion produces heartburn. Your health is riding on your body’s ability to absorb nutrients. Without good digestion, weight loss efforts are compromised.

What we can do: Avoid processed, canned, frozen and junk fake foods. Incorporate more plant-based foods from mother nature. Get inspired to plan your healthy meals at home. Create lasting changes to your relationship with food.


Researchers at the Mayo Clinic found that even moderate weight gain can exacerbate GERD. . http://www.healthline.com/health/gerd/weight-loss see also http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23358462
