Is there a cure or proper treatment for GERD?

I just found out I have it and I believe it may be chronic considering the symptoms I’ve had in the past. I also salivate way too much and its becoming irritating, I’ve always believed myself to be healthy but maybe not as I thought. Real, helpful answers please no ignorant, childish foolishness please

  1. I hear rave reviews from people who use Nexium. It’s by prescription only and since there’s no generic yet, if you don’t have good insurance it’s very expensive. Other than that, the routine of avoid triggering foods, taking OTC medications such as Rolaids and the like are the only tried and true courses of action.

  2. “The most common risk factors for GERD include anything that obstructs the esophagus or stomach region such as hiatal hernia, pregnancy, and scleroderma. Other proven risk factors include obesity, smoking, and alcohol usage. Many prescription medications list GERD as a common side effect so this should always be considered.

    The popular belief is that acid reflux is due to an excessive amount of hydrochloric acid in the stomach. New science has revealed that this is not the case. GERD is most often caused by too little hydrochloric acid being secreted by the stomach.

    During digestion the stomach secretes acid to lower its pH to around 1.5-2.5 range. More protein in the meal results in a greater need for stomach acid. Individuals with non-obstructive acid reflux are often not able to get their pH low enough. The LES is known to be a pH sensitive valve that initiates closure when pH drops under 3.0. When the stomach does not have enough acid, the LES remains open and acid can spill into the esophageal region and damage the tissue.”
