GERD is a digestive disorder that affects the muscle between your esophagus and your stomach. It's usually referred to as acid reflux. It happens when your stomach contents come back up into your esophagus.
This is a common root cause for many irritable bowel diseases and irritable bowel syndrome yet it is very under-diagnosed. It’s not an infection but rather an overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine which proliferates due to a slow metabolism.
Parasites and candida overgrowth tend to go hand in hand. If you have one, you likely have the other. They are both extremely common, can cause many irritating symptoms and are usually the result of a slow metabolism.
Also known as intestinal permeability. It is when the tight junctions of the small intestine wall have become loose allowing bacteria, viruses, antigens, toxins, immune complexes and/or large food particles to leak into the bloodstream.
