In this video, Dr. Patti Kim explains how to get rid of acid reflux naturally- you will be surprised to learn that acid reflux is not caused by too much acid:
According to Dr. Kim, stress is a major factor in causing acid reflux which “reduces stomach acid.” This acid reduction makes the sphincter or “doorway” as she calls it, relax and in turn, causes a leak of acid to the esophagus. Taking antacids or proton pump inhibitors such as plavix causes “harmful side effects,” as these common treatments stop the production of acid altogether rather than treating the root cause or problem.
Root problems may be eating too fast, not chewing your food properly, eating spicy foods, eating late at night or in general “poor nutrition.” One focus is to reduce red meats, caffeine, alcohol and citrus which can cause acid reflux. Dr. Kim repeats that stress is a major contributor of reduced stomach acid causing acid reflux.
Treatments for natural acid reflux may include performing a stomach Ph evaluation, as the proper Ph needs to be balanced according to Dr. Kim. Her treatments also include a lifestyle education which is replacing foods that cause the reflux with whole organic foods, exercise, herbal nutrition, homeopathy and the use of digestive supplements. There are many other natural remedies reveled so be sure to watch this video.
