All About Acid Reflux
Acid reflux is commonly associated with heartburn, which is exactly what it sounds like: a burning pain in the chest area. This is one of the main symptoms when stomach acid flows back up into the esophagus.
FACTS: Acid reflux is commonly associated with heartburn, which is exactly what it sounds like: a burning pain in the chest area. This is one of the main symptoms when stomach acid flows back up into the esophagus. During an episode of acid reflux, the gastroesophageal sphincter does not function properly as a one-way valve to prevent stomach contents from moving in the wrong direction. The backwash from your stomach can irritate the lining of the esophagus. Hundreds of millions of people experience acid reflux from time to time. It is most common just after eating a meal.
Other than chest pain, common signs and symptoms of acid reflux may include bloating, burping, nausea, wheezing, difficulty swallowing, unexplained weight loss and the sensation of a lump in your throat.
GERD, or gastroesophageal reflux disease, is chronic acid reflux. Mild acid reflux that occurs at least twice a week, or moderate to severe acid reflux that occurs once a week is considered to be GERD. Factors that may contribute to cases of GERD include obesity, smoking, lack of exercise, certain medications, and a condition called hiatal hernia in which there is a hole in the diaphragm. Dietary choices can also lead to acid reflux such as eating large meals, not having enough fiber in your diet, or ingesting too much salt, chocolate, caffeine, alcohol, soda, or juice.
GERD is also very common, affecting up to 20% of all adults. Although prevalent, this disease is often misunderstood and unrecognized. It is usually treatable, and serious complications can occur if it is not properly treated. Most people can manage the discomfort of chronic acid reflux with diet and lifestyle changes and over-the-counter medications. But GERD patients may need stronger medications or surgery to ease symptoms.

The kids are the perfect gift for family and friends. My only suggestion is to try and protect them by individually wrapping each when shipping multiple kids. I’m really pleased with the quality.
I love it!!
Item arrived quickly with no problems!
I wanted a dreamhouse for my 70s dollhouse and this is perfect. It was delivered very quickly and went directly into a 1/12 playroom. The best part is the tiny Ken though. He is a wonderful addition to the dollhouse.
I love this mini Barbie dream house! I got the real thing for Christmas when I was a kid. It was well played with and it’s nice to have a mini version to display as the real dream house just wouldn’t look quite right on my desk at work. (🤔😊) Thanks for such a creative way for adults to tap into their fondest childhood memories & be able to enjoy a mini version. Super cool idea!
A great seller to work with, price was perfect and fast to shop out. My item was exactly as advertised.
Just as described. They’re adorable
KnickKnack Toy Shack has the best items available at great prices! The customer service outstanding! The tiny Barbie Case is exactly like the original in the 80s! Highly recommended! God Bless & Stay Safe! :))
I am satisfied with my purchase. However, after only a couple days of use, the batteries are beginning to fade. I'd like to know how to replace the batteries, and Westminster has yet to reply to my request.
Can you speak to them, and prompt a reply to me?
Absolutely love these!!! I collect minis and wacky packages was hoping they would make mini packs with cards/stickers!!! Can’t find them here 😔 so very happy you have them!! Thank you to a great seller!!!!!
For nearly 50 years I’ve collected cards. Almost as long I’ve collected miniatures. These are two favorite collectibles in one for me. If they produce miniature packs of Kiss cards, that may be an overload. Always top notch service!
This miniature is fantastic, I had a full size example as a kid and loved it. This brought back a fond time for me. Thank you!!
