Acid reflux is a very common disorder, affecting millions of people in the United States alone. Its effects can wreak havoc on your life, causing pain, discomfort, inability to sleep, and mental distress. It takes a huge toll on your quality of life. It can make it difficult for you to find foods to eat that do not trigger an episode. You may pop antacids like candy, with little or no relief, only to find your condition getting worse over time.
If that weren’t enough, over the long term, it can lead to serious complications, including difficulty swallowing, gastrointestinal bleeding, and even a certain type of esophageal cancer that only occurs in people with GERD.
The problem with traditional medicine is that while it addresses the symptoms of acid reflux, it does not address the cause. In fact, modern-day medications do more harm than good.
How can this be?
It is because medicine has presupposed that acid reflux must be due to an excess of acid in the stomach. This is not the case, at all! One of the main reasons for acid indigestion is actually that the stomach does not have enough natural secretion of the digestive enzyme hydrochloric acid (HCl).
Yes, it is not a problem of too much acid, but too little. This happens because of the chemicals in the foods we eat, and the medications we take. These foods sit in our stomachs undigested and after a while begin to ferment and produce their own acids.
Using antacid medications worsens the problem. Antacids neutralize stomach acid. Without the proper secretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, harmful bacteria, fungi, and parasites can survive and thrive. This can lead to leaky gut, irritable bowel syndrome, food allergies and intolerance, yeast infection (candidiasis), and even worsening of acid reflux.
So, instead of curing the problem, we create another problem. The stomach produces additional acids to replenish those that have been neutralized - this is called the acid rebound effect. Because of the economic and social burdens of GERD in the United States, it is important that people have access to alternative therapies and lifestyle modifications.
