heartburn & reflux

Many people believe that heartburn is caused by having too much stomach acid. Not many people know that too little stomach acid is a very common cause of heartburn too. It may sound counterintuitive, but it's true; insufficient acid weakens the barrier between the stomach and esophagus. 


The best way to treat reflux is to avoid food triggers and sensitivities. If there is an H. pylori infection, that has to be treated as well. After that, correcting the acid levels tends to not only improve the heartburn but also help digestion in general. Stress management is crucial for avoiding reflux.


With the right supplement and nutrition, it may be possible to rid yourself of the cringe-inducing burning pain and stop dreading meals.
