Reflux disease is a malady which affects millions of people world wide. It is often called the plague of the 21st century. Reflux disease is a condition in which excessive production of hydrochloric acid is regurgitated back from the stomach up into the esophagus through the
LES, or lower esophageal sphincter. The LES is the natural valve that keeps stomach contents in the stomach and out of the esophagus. When working properly, this important valve operates like a door, letting food into the stomach but not back up into the esophagus . The esophagus is also known as swallowing tube.
