Gastroesophageal reflux, referred to as GERD, is a digestive issue caused when stomach acids get into the esophagus. This can happen after eating upsetting foods, and is often the result of a weakened muscle at the base of the esophagus, the lower esophageal sphincter, the body uses to prevent digestive juices and food from flowing into the esophagus.
The purpose of the GERD diet is to relieve many of the symptoms of GERD including heartburn, coughing, difficulty swallowing, chest pain, excessive clearing of the throat, the feeling that food is stuck in your throat and a sour taste or burning sensation in the mouth. Avoiding digestive stress can often alleviate some of the more uncomfortable or painful aspects of GERD.
