We all have experienced that uneasiness in the stomach after a heavy meal. This often leads to indigestion, bloating, acidity and heartburns. Because of its short spell, we hardly pay attention to these common digestive issues. But did you know that if left untreated, this could lead to major health trouble like Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).
