Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease or GERD
Debilitating stomach cramps, searing abdominal pain, excruciating burning, constant sleep disturbance, acid-filled hiccups and acid reflux are some of the symptoms the affected person endures.
Traditional treatment often consists of antacids like Tums and Rolaids and if that it doesn’t help proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are prescribed.
Normally nobody has too much Hydrochloric Acid or HCl. HCl along with other gastric juices are released in our stomach when we eat to help break down the foods and protect us from pathogens in the foods we eat. Acid reflux is a reaction, often an allergic reaction, to foods that are too acid or eaten in a bad combination that the body can’t handle. People who drink coffee all day long often develop acid reflux.
Treating the allergies and changing lifestyle by adding more fresh fruits and vegetables to the diet, eating more fermented foods and taking enzymes is often all you have to do to feel better. No drugs will be necessary!
