How a Dietitian Can Help with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GORD)

There is a band of muscle at the top of the stomach that stops acid from moving into the oesophagus and mouth. When this muscle (lower oesophageal sphincter) isn't able to function properly, acid can move into the oesophagus and mouth. This leads to symptoms such as pain, burning, bloating, acid tasting mouth, burping and coughing at night.

GORD is also known as reflux, heartburn and indigestion.
