Acid Reflux Treatment

Safe, Effective Treatment

Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD) is a severe form of acid reflux; when acid from the stomach leaks into the oesophagus (the tube connecting your stomach and throat) and causes a burning sensation in the chest, pain and inflammation.

Normally, there is a barrier between the stomach and the oesophagus that prevents the acid from escaping. In acid reflux, this barrier is weakened and impaired.
