Acid Reflux

Symptoms of reflux

Do you cough or clear your throat after eating a meal? Do you have sensations of a “lump in your throat” or difficulty swallowing? Are you plagued by postnasal drip? Is your throat hoarse or sore in the morning?

Four out of ten people suffer from acid reflux and nearly half of them don’t know they have it!

Acid Reflux has been poorly understood by Doctor’s in closely related fields. The correct diagnosis is often confused with other diagnoses, including upper respiratory infections. Often a specialist might misdiagnose asthma, allergy, and/or sinusitis, when in fact it is an acid reflux.

What makes acid reflux insidious and difficult to diagnose is that most people who have it DO NOT have heartburn and indigestion. It is the most common disease of the breathing passages; and it contributes to the development of many diseases of the ear, throat, lungs, nose and esophagus including cancer.
The most common way to relief the symptoms is the use of antacids which can cause internal bleeding, ulcers, fatigue, nutrient depletion, and even ice-cold feet. Some people take them every day just to get by. Antacids get rid of vital stomach acid which you need to properly digest your foods. As you can imagine, this is a big problem for many reasons. Furthermore, it also makes it far more difficult to absorb nutrients like calcium, magnesium and strontium, which keep bones strong and healthy. These are just SOME of the many health problems caused by lowering your stomach acid.
