Depends: Parakeratosis in the esophageal lining occurs in response to some irritant. If the irritant is remove, it is likely to go away and the normal lining to regenerate. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
