Gerd's disease occurs because of a sphincter disturbance which is a lower esophageal valve. In normal circumstances the sphicnter will be tightly closed and strong so it can hold the entire contents of the stomach so as not to rise up. But when this valve is weak, the contents of the stomach have a chance to rise up and cause Gerd's disease.
Sphincter naturally can tighten and relax automatically with our rhythm of chewing and swallowing food. When we swallow food then this valve will relax so that the cavity is open and food will pass through and into the stomach. After that the valve will close again until the meeting automatically.
When this sphincter valve is interrupted, it will not close tightly. So the stomach acid can rise up more precisely into the esophagus. Over time this stomach acid irritates the esophagus and causes inflammation.
If not treated properly then stomach acid will damage the esophageal lining. This will cause other risks such as bleeding, esophageal narrowing to cancer can cause in the area.
Stomach is one of the digestive organs that have vital functions. In the stomach digestion is chemically started, so the stomach generally produces stomach acid to help the digestion chemically. But usually stomach disease tend to be in the dark, but it can endanger the body's health.
One of the stomach ailments to watch out for is Gerd or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease. Gerd is a less familiar gastric disease in the community, unlike the commonly known gastritis. But Gred can also cause serious health problems if not handled appropriately.
