Do you actually know what is GERD or Gastroesophageal reflux disease? Its causes and early symptoms? If not, you should have googled it by now or just watch the easiest explanation.

Last March 18 of this year, the famous TikTok’s Favorite Doctor, Dr. Winston Kilimanjaro or a.k.a. Dr. Kilimanguru, guested on HDI World’s webinar entitled “Oh My GERD!”.

The session started with a very informative discussion of Doc Kilimanguru about Gerd – its meaning, early symptoms, complications, the food that triggers and prevents it and how pure honey can help people with GERD.

Know the details of each here.

We don’t want this to happen so take care of yourself because “Health is wealth, invest in yourself.” as added by Doc Kilimanguru.

But, there’s nothing to worry about because there are some foods that can relieve the pain of GERD like high fiber foods and natural honey.

Keep in mind to only take pure honey or unadulterated honey (those that don’t go through filtration) like HDI Clover Honey as recommended by Dr. Kilimanguru.

HDI Clover Honey is guaranteed 100% pure, tested through the purity test.

And Doc Char’s final message to everyone, “Make sure that your honey is real and pure to receive the true benefits of honey.”
