Acid Reflux occurs when the process of digestion is disturbed. At the entrance of your stomach and the end of the esophagus their is a valve called the lower esophageal sphincter. During the normal digestion process, food passes from the esophagus to the stomach through the opening of the sphincter. Once the food has reached end of the esophagus, it then transitions to the area of the stomach. The sphincter closes in order to allow the digestive process to occur in the stomach. Unfortunately when the lower esophageal sphincter is not working properly problems can arise. If the sphincter does not close completely then acid produced by the stomach will enter the esophagus and the individual will experience heart burn.
