Most of us have experienced gastric reflux or heartburn at least once in our lifetime.
Gastric reflux (slang) is the second most common gastrointestinal disease. This condition is known as gastric acidity. Gastric reflux occurs when the contents of the stomach (stomach juice containing acid) return to the esophagus. Gastric reflux usually causes heartburn. This sensation travels from the stomach into the chest or throat, commonly known as heartburn.
The food we eat enters the stomach through the esophagus. Digestion of food in the stomach is initiated by stomach acid and juice. The stomach wall is resistant to constant contact with stomach acid and juice and their destructive effects due to its proper coverage. On the contrary, the esophageal wall does not have a proper defense against these factors due to a lack of proper cover.
Normally, there is a valve called the esophageal valve between the esophagus and the stomach that allows food to enter the stomach from the esophagus. But it prevents food and gastric juice from returning to the esophagus.
If the esophageal valve does not do its job properly, that is, it does not close properly or open prematurely, acid and gastric juice return to the esophagus. As mentioned earlier, the esophageal wall is vulnerable to acid and gastric juice. Therefore, in the event that the esophageal valve does not do its job properly; the Return of stomach acid and juice into the esophagus irritates the esophagus.

There are several causes of this discomfort. The most important reason for this condition is that some of the esophageal muscles (lower esophageal sphincter) are loose or that these muscles are often relaxed or that the defense mechanisms of the end of the esophagus are weak. In fact, permanent or unstable changes in the esophageal valve to the stomach cause this disease.
