What is GERD?

GERD is gastroesophageal reflux diseaseI and occurs when there is reflux of stomach contents into the esophagus that creates troublesome symptoms and/or complications. It may include erosion (visible injury to the mucosal lining) into the esophagus or not.

Common GERD Symptoms
check mark
Heartburn and regurgitation are the most common

Trouble swallowing, chest pain, coughing, wheezing, nausea, painful swallowing
check mark
It may mimic angina with squeezing or burning chest pain
Types of GERD
check mark
Erosive GERD with erosion of the esophageal mucosal lining
check mark
Non-erosive GERD with no evidence of erosion

What tests does Index Health typically use to diagnose GERD?

We consider a variety of factors for the diagnosis, which may include:
check mark
GERD is often diagnosed clinically, i.e based on symptoms
check mark
For symptoms that have been unusual, severe or prolonged, an upper endoscopy (EGD) may be necessary to determine if any erosion is present

What is our approach to treating those diagnosed with GERD?

Our GERD treatment approach is entirely personalized to the individual. It may include:
check mark
Gut Health: focus on improving dysbiosis of the microbiome, restoring impaired digestive functions, healing the intestinal lining/barrier, and treating any fungal/bacterial/parasitic infections
check mark
Nutrition: Evaluate for food sensitivities or allergies and remove these through carefully planned elimination diets. Remove potential toxins and aggravators like spicy foods, caffeine, alcohol, or chocolate while the stomach heals. Add in healing foods that contain polyphenols to help improve the intestinal wall, and promote normal digestion
check mark
Gut-Brain connection: we work to rebalance and improve one’s stress resilience utilizing individualized programs. Without this focus on stress, all of the above can be undone
check mark
A focus on nutrition plus exercise can help to improve weight, which is also a direct contributor towards GERD symptoms

How long does it take to reduce and manage GERD symptoms? What are possible results?

Symptoms may improve quickly but often it takes 3-6 months to begin to see true healing. The longer the symptoms have been present, the longer it may take. We may, with time, be able to wean off antacid pharmaceuticals, however in some cases they are necessary chronically.

What happens if you don’t manage GERD properly?
Without addressing the underlying causes, symptoms may persist and progress. Erosion that occurs may cause permanent damage to the esophagus. It may progress to Barrett’s esophagitis, which predisposes to cancer (adenocarcinoma) of the esophagus.

Meet Lisa, who was put on Thyroid medication while pregnant. Lisa wanted to get off medication.

We addressed her inability to detox and began to fix abnormal bacterial growth in her microbiome (Klebsiella) while boosting the gut immune system (low sIgA).

"I have never had a doctor spend so much time preparing for our appointment by extensively analyzing all of my lab work from the past several years and putting together a comprehensive plan." - Lisa
