Understanding GERD (Gastro esophageal reflux disease)

  • Posted on November 29, 2017 at 5:22 pm

Gastro Esophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a constant digestive disorder in which abdomen contents (food or liquid) leak back into the esophagus (the tube leading from the mouth to the abdomen). Most of people suffer from this situation, making it is the most familiar diagnosis of all presenting gastrointestinal complaints. Gastro esophageal Reflux Disease, known as GERD, is more than ordinary heartburn. It occurs when a person suffers frequently from stomach acid entering the esophagus.

It is a chronic and long term disease. Most of the GERD theories focus on malfunctioning of valve-like tissue joining esophagus and stomach. Impairment in the functioning of the valve can no longer protect the reflux of stomach acid into esophagus causing inflammation. Other contributing factors include Hiatal Hernia, lower esophageal sphincter abnormalities, and smoking and Blocker medicines. If untreated, it can cause stomach ulcers which may progress into strictures. In a disease called Barrett’s esophagus, there is growth of cancerous cells in the esophagus. Lungs, throat and Larynx may also get affected.

GERD is commonly a nocturnal disease. When the person is sitting upright, gravity works against the reflux. Similarly, constant swallowing of saliva which contains bicarbonates neutralizes the acid in esophagus. It prevents the restlessness. However, when the person is lying supine and asleep, these bodily security mechanisms no longer work and the person feels burning sensation in the stomach and chest.

The symptoms of Gastro esophageal reflux disease are as follows :
Heartburn (Chest pain)

Tests: –
Biopsy of esophageal patch,
Esophagram-X-ray of esophagus (not much in use)
Throat and larynx Checkup
Inserting pH testing-catheter/capsule
Esophageal motility testing to check working capacity of esophageal muscles
Gastric emptying studies-to study how well stomach is emptying with the help of some radioactive substance

Treatment of GERD:-
Gerd can be easily managed by trial of medical therapy including use of OTC medicines such as pepcid, Zantac , prilosec or prevacid and life-style modifications.
Lifestyle changes
Avoiding alcohol, chocolate, caffeine
Raised bed to keep upper body level higher
Smaller meals to facilitate emptying of stomach
Proton pump inhibitor (PPI) (e.g. Omeprazole) to block secretion of acid into stomach by acid-screening cells.
Minerals based antacids
Histamine antagonists to prevent Histamine from stimulating acid secretion e.g. Famotidine Ranitidine
Pro-motility drugs to stimulate muscles of gastro-intestinal tract e.g. Metoclopramide
Endoscopic treatments
Foam Barriers

Physicians, after taking into consideration all the factors, decide the course of action. With proper treatment GERD can be managed easily.

In Focus: Bell Motivator Mag Indoor Bicycle Trainer

Do you remember all the times the weather changed out of nowhere and cruelly destroyed your plans of physical fitness on your loved bicycle? Nightfall came just too early and now it’s just too dark to still go for a ride at the end of a long day at the office?

This is the solution for indoor riding in the comfort and warmth of your home.

With only a few tweaks you’ll have your bike linked from the Bell Motivator Mag Indoor Bicycle Trainer and are ready to go, again.

There are many types of Bicycle trainers;some working with wind resistance, others with water resistance and a third kind with magnetic resistance. Each and every one of the three types has benefits and, as it comes, disadvantages and setbacks. The Indoor Bicycle Trainer working with wind resistance is very loud and will not permit its user to watch some television while working out; It’s simply too loud. Neither is it going to increase the resistance with the increase of velocity. The type that works with water resistance will do just that and increase its resistance with the speed of the wheel. The original Magnetic Indoor Bicycle Trainer is very quite and smooth running but has the disadvantage of not increasing its resistance with the increase of velocity. This now changed and all the benefits of all three types of trainers have been combined into the new that will just amaze you with its stability, quality and smoothness of ride.

Don’t even think about buying a new exercise bike for your home; just use your regular bike, whatever type you have at hand, strap it in the trainer and get going!

Online Customer Care is Instrumental in Reducing Product Returns

  • Posted on November 29, 2017 at 2:15 pm

Remember the gleam in their eyes when the customer walked out of the store with your product in hand. You saw their desire to rush home, tear open the packaging, and use the product! What may seem like a job well done becomes a bitter pill to swallow when the same individual reappears to make a product return. Gone is the excitement! There is now a disgruntled look on their face and the angry customer is now demanding a full refund! You can appease him with a 100% refund but the hassle has just begun! You will also endure the repackaging, restocking and reselling costs and by the end of the day, all product returns will affect your bottom line!

Here are two steps your business can take to reduce product returns:

1. Implement online customer care

‘Prevention is better than cure’ is more than a popular idiom. It aptly applies to online customer service. This online CRM application connects visitors to a customer service representative through live chat. Online customer care is instrumental in reducing product returns by proffering support while the customer is shopping. CSRs analyze online metrics such as excessive keywords and webpage duration to understand if a customer is in need of assistance. Online customer service gives customers an opportunity to discuss product technicalities, shipping and return policies. This one-on-one conversation eliminates all quandaries so the wrong purchase decision isn’t made!

2. Limit the window for returns

While, 30 days is the standard window for return, some retailers are implementing a strict policy of 7-10 days to return a product. Make the return policy visible on your website and on receipts to minimize customer confusion. Richard Ignatz (President of Boutique Emmanuel) explains, “As a small boutique that carries a limited number of garments in each size, when a customer brought back an item back 30 or 60 days later, the season was over and I would have to put it on the 50- to 75-percent-off rack. We missed a chance to sell it to someone else two or three times in that period.”
