Acid-Reflux-Heartburn-GERD.net is a site that has heaps of information about heartburn. (GERD means gastro-oesophageal reflux disease).

The site has different sections devoted to acid reflux, heartburn, GERD and indigestion. Each of these sections has different pages devoted to causes, symptoms and treatments as well as possible links to other ailments. There is also a page devoted to references so that you can source the information and follow it up if you would like to. The references are a mix of books and refereed journals. They are almost all from a western bio-medical point of view; however there is a mention of acupuncture and there is good information on adjusting diet, eating habits, sleeping position and so forth.

If you suffer from heartburn I think you will some useful information here. I think it also works as a good resource on this particular problem.

The major drawback is that the writing is not terribly good. There aren’t any major typos or grammatical slips, the information is conveyed but the writing is far from dazzling. (For a site like this – where people are looking to have their pain alleviated – I guess this doesn’t matter much.)

    Can you please check the url for that site, as “Acid-Reflux-Heartburn-GERD.net” returns an error message.

  2. Evan says:

    Thanks for letting me know. I’ll check it out.

  3. Evan says:

    Both the link from the post and the one in the sidebar are working for me. Please let me know if they still aren’t working for you and I’ll have a better look at what might be going wrong. thanks.

  4. Caro says:

    The link works now, thanks.

    When I tried it there wasn’t an actual hyperlink so I copied and pasted the text of the url, which is wrong. (there is no hyphen between ‘acid’ and ‘reflux’)

    Hi Evan, thanks for the link, it reminded me something I have to work on (diet!)

    You posted that we could suggest topics you could write about, and I was thinking about the relation between emotions and illnesses or just disorders. Personally, I believe there’s a physical or biological component and an emotional component to illnesses and disorders.

    For instance, we know ulcers and heart attacks can be caused because of a signifficant amount of stress, too much worrying, etc.

    All the best 🙂

    Hi Mariana, I’ll have a go at writing about this. It’ll take me a week or so though.
