Gastroesophageal reflux disease
, commonly referred to as GERD or acid reflux
, is a condition in which the liquid content of the stomach regurgitates (backs up or refluxes) into the esophagus
.One of the simplest treatments for GERD is referred to as life-style changes, a combination of several changes in habit, particularly related to eating.Fatty foods (which should be decreased) and smoking (which should be stopped) also reduce the pressure in the sphincter and promote reflux. so both should be avoided..
By constricting the blood vessel walls to raise blood pressure, nicotine
in smoke decreases the amount of blood that can pass through the vessels. Impaired circulation means that less oxygenated blood can reach every part of the body, which can trigger a wide range of medical problems including heart attack
..so i would advise you to stop smoking..
