Methods This patient had started treatment with Yeoldahanso-tang(Reduohanshao-tang), three times per day for three months and assessed the changes of the main symptoms such as chest pain, heartburn and acid regurgitation from baseline to post-treatment using a questionnaire with visual analogue scale(VAS). Electrogastrography(EGG) was also performed for assessment of gastric function from baseline to post-treatment. 3. Results After the treatment, symptoms of GERD such as chest pain, heartburn, and acid regurgitation are almost disappeared. The patient don't need to take the proton pump inhibitor therapy. There was significant increase of % bradygastria parameters in fed EEG after treatment with Yeoldahansotang(Reduohanshao-tang). And significant increase of the power ratio after treatment was shown (20.5), compared with initial EGG(0.0). 4. Conclusions This results show Yeoldahanso-tang(Reduohanshao-tang) can be used to treat GERD with Dry-heat symptom of Taeumin.
