8 Risk Factors That DO NOT Cause Acid Reflux
Acid reflux also known as heartburn or GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) plagues 20% of the population unnecessarily.
Yes that’s correct unnecessarily!
So why are Proton Pump inhibitors (PPIs) drugs like Nexium, Prilosec, and Prevacid among the highest-selling classes of drugs in North America? To the tune of 9.5 billion in annual sales.
Because medical doctors have it wrong when it concerns Acid Reflux. They do not know what causes it and they don't know how to cure it. So they make Billions managing it...
Here are eight risk factors that Do Not cause heartburn:
- Eating a large meals
- Eating just before bed
- Lying down right after a meal
- Drinking alcohol, tea or coffee
- Eating spicy foods, citrus, fatty foods, chocolate, onions or garlic
- Taking medication such as aspirin, muscle relaxers or blood pressure medication
These factors are known to trigger heartburn. But remember correlation does not equal causation.
Medical doctors have told you that acid reflux is a result of too much stomach acid - but they can't tell you why or how this happens (it doesn't). Their ad hoc solution is to give a PPI to stop the production of stomach acid….The result no more GERD. This is like cutting off a finger to eliminate finger pain. It is an out of date, juvenile prescription which completely misses the point. Par for the course in MD land.
The reality of the situation us that Acid Reflux is caused by not enough stomach acid!
