Acid reflux is a common health problem that affects many individuals. One out of every two Americans suffers GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease), heartburn, acid reflux, peptic ulcer, and heartburn at least once a month!
Dehydration, psychical discomfort (tight clothing), overeating, stomach acids imbalance, enzyme deficiency, small bowel bacterial overgrowth, celiac disease, PH imbalance, food allergies, H-Pylori, stress, sphincter dysfunction are the true causes of GERD, heartburn, and acid reflux.
By suppressing acid, you’re merely suppressing the symptoms, causing the issue to persist.
When using acid-blocking medicines, it is recommended that you do not take them for more than 6 weeks in a row. Second, these tablets work by preventing acid, which may cause problems including fungal and bacterial growth, enzyme inactivation, protein digestion, in the small intestine, and vitamin malabsorption like b-12, magnesium, and calcium.
All is not lost since you may treat yourself at home.
