GERD: Gastroesophageal reflux disease is an inflammation of the esophagus from reflux of acidic stomach contents. Esomeprazole decreases the acidity of the stomach. You can try to limit caffeine, nicotine, citrus foods, tomato sauce, spices. These relax the lower esophageal sphincter and lead to more reflux. Also sleep elevated at night. Eating blander foods might help.

GERD: has many causes and occurs for different reasons in different patients. Obesity or decreased muscle tone in the GI tract may contribute. Many foods may cause heartburn including mint, alcohol, chocolates, spices and garlic. Try cutting some of these foods out of your diet and assess your body`s response. Esomeprazole is usually a good medicine but alternatives such as ranitidine may help.
