Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is common throughout the world, and its epidemiology is linked to the Western lifestyle. An individual with the typical symptoms of GERD has a fivefold risk of developing esophageal adenocarcinoma.
Through the eyes of holistic approaches, the symptoms of GERD carry a profound meaning, associated with the ability of our patients to “bite through” life experiences.
In this course, Eyal Springer presents an integrated nutritional approach for GERD and its related symptoms, established on Chinese medicine, Ayurveda, and Macrobiotics.
Through this course, Eyal discusses common themes within these medical systems regarding the pathophysiology of GERD. He introduces various food items, preparations, spices, and healing beverages that address the “heartburn” while reliving the painful life experience associated with it.
