GERD Management: The Case for Lifestyle in an Era of PPIs.

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a common condition in the United States, routinely treated with proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).

Lifestyle medicine can be effective in reducing GERD symptoms in many patients without the untoward side effects of pharmacotherapy.
