Gastric juices are composed of strong enzymes and digestive acids.

It is not unusual for these acids to go up from the stomach to the esophagus causing heartburn in the digestive phase.

This process is clinically referred to as Gastro-Esophageal Reflux (GER). However, at times, small amounts of gastric juices can travel up the throat to reach the larynx. This situation is clinically referred to as Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR) also called silent reflux because many people may have no associated symptoms of heartburn or digestive difficulties.

RLF can occur both day and night, even if nothing has been eaten.
