Diet for GERD / Acidity

Indigestion, Acidity, and Heartburn are the most common digestive problem in the World.

The main problem with these issues is they are functional disorders, which means there is nothing structurally wrong with your digestion system.

There is no pill to take away the issue or no operation to undergo to remove the problem. In simple terms, there is no disease present that can be cured!! How to Cope up?? More frustrating right??

What is Acidity and Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)?

The gastric glands present in the stomach release gastric juice which is needed to digest the food we eat.

If the stomach produces more gastric juice than required it causes a burning sensation in the stomach and under the breastbone. This condition is called Acidity. When acidity symptoms occur frequently for more than a week or 10 days, it is known as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).

Many people suffer this pain silently or put an antacid pill to get some relief. The antacid will give short-term relief before the pain returns more ferociously.

In GERD, the food is eaten, which is often mixed with digestive juices in the stomach, instead of continuing the journey into the small intestine and going back to the esophagus (your food pipe). This happens when the muscles controlling the opening between the esophagus and the stomach do not work correctly.

The food can be acidic and cause a burning sensation, which is also known as heartburn. The sensation of burning begins in the stomach and spreads up under the breast bone to the middle-upper chest.

What is Dyspepsia or Indigestion?

Dyspepsia or Functional Dyspepsia is the medical term labeled by doctors for recurrent abdominal discomfort that includes abdominal pain, Gas, Bloating, Heartburn, Nausea, Vomiting, Belching, and a Sour taste in the mouth. Dyspepsia in Greek means “Indigestion”, which perfectly describes all the above symptoms.

This condition is described as “functional” because there is nothing structurally wrong with the upper digestive area but symptoms persist.

Why should book appointment

Do not worry, if you are someone with a sensitive stomach and are confused if it is Acidity or heartburn, Indigestion or dyspepsia, or GERD, dietary modification may give you relief. 

Stopping food randomly is not going to solve your problem. It makes you irritated, socially awkward, and nutritionally deficient. Often it has been seen that there are few foods that trigger acidity and indigestion. This food can be different from person to person. Therefore, identifying the trigger causing food following a proper method is the first step.

Then understanding the tolerance level of those trigger food is necessary. In that case, ultimately you can enjoy most of the foods except a few to feel better.

People Talk about Us

Dr. Soma Chakrabarty offers a scientific and well balanced diet and nutrition advise. She designed my meal plan based on daily ration of each food category ,with multiple options which allowed flexibility to fit into routine lifestyle. I appreciated her approach of a sustainable diet plan and the flexibility to choose the food. She would follow-up on scheduled calls every week to discuss progress and clarify doubts. The three month plan with Dr Soma inculcated a disciplined approach to diet. I gave up all the packaged/ processed snacks, biscuits. I feel much better and energetic and my diabetes is much better controlled. I wish her all the best and highly recommend her.

Got the reference of Dr Soma Chakraborty from a friend and to my surprise she didn’t provide me a very strict diet. However, guided me to a balanced diet for each day. Best thing she didn’t suggest any fancy superfood diet, but guided me through a simple Indian meal in moderation. During the course of 6 months, she was always available for any difficulties I faced with the diet. She always suggested alternatives and that made me feel good about following the diet. Dr Soma’s constant motivation helped me develop a healthy lifestyle which I guess will follow for the rest of my life.

The excellent articles and information available on the website helped me decide to enroll with them. Dr Soma Chakrabarty designed a meal daily meal plan , taking into consideration multiple factors like availability, preferences, daily schedule, and followed by scheduled calls every week to discuss progress, suggest tweaks, resolve doubts and overcome my initial skepticism. After six months, the results have far exceeded my expectations, - to sum it up, I got my health back thanks to Dr Soma and Wellness Munch, and I wish them all the best.
