Acid Reflux


Acid reflux, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), is a common digestive disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It occurs when stomach acid and/or bile flows back up into the esophagus, causing a range of symptoms including heartburn, chest pain, regurgitation, and difficulty swallowing.

At the Stengler Center for Integrative Medicine, we take a holistic, integrative approach to acid reflux treatment. Our goal is to help our patients find relief from their symptoms by addressing the underlying causes of their acid reflux and promoting optimal digestive health.


Common symptoms of acid reflux include:

  • Heartburn
  • Regurgitation
  • Chest pain
  • Difficulty  swallowing
  • Chronic cough
  • Hoarseness
  • Bloating
  • Nausea
  • Bad breath


Dr. Mark Stengler offers a variety of safe, effective treatments for acid reflux, including:

  • Lifestyle modifications: We will work with you to identify and modify any lifestyle factors that may be contributing to your acid reflux symptoms, such as     diet, stress, and smoking.
  • Nutritional counseling: We will evaluate your diet and recommend changes that can help alleviate your acid reflux symptoms. This may include reducing your intake of trigger foods, increasing your fiber intake, and incorporating supplements that support digestive health.
  • Herbal and nutrient therapies: We may recommend herbal remedies and/or nutritional supplements that can help reduce inflammation and promote     healing in the digestive tract.
