GERD is short for Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease. Well GERD really is just a fancy word for acid reflux! Acid reflux aka is the burning feeling in your chest from the food that is coming up and eroding the esophagus from the stomach acids. Sounds just about as unpleasant as it feels. At your local pharmacy you will find plenty of expensive (and sometimes hard to pronounce) synthetic pharmacological agents used to attempt to "stop" this. Why not save money and use something natural as a form of treatment? Try treating your GERD with the aromatherapy of natural peppermint oil! This is a natural form of treatment which helps to increase gastromotility, which means that it helps to push the food down quicker so it is less likely that the food has the chance of climbing back up the esophagus. Menthol, the active medicinal ingredient in peppermint oil, is a natural calcium channel blocker to the smooth muscle of the gut. This means that it helps your GI tract to beat in synchrony and help keep your food acids down. So breath in for relief with the NoMo Nausea Band.
