The Acid Reflux Strategy

Published on 3/19/2019

Acid reflux or gastric esophageal reflux disease (GERD) is one of the most common conditions affecting Americans today.  This condition is characterized by a burning sensation in the chest that has coined the term “heartburn.”  An anti-inflammatory lifestyle has been shown to beat acid reflux naturally. Upon eating, food naturally passes from the throat to the stomach through the esophagus.  The esophagus contains a group of muscle fibers in the shape of a ring that prevent food from moving backward from the stomach to the esophagus.  These muscle fibers make the lower esophageal sphincter (LES).

 

Your doctor inserts a thin, flexible tube equipped with a light and camera (endoscope) down your throat, to examine the inside of your esophagus and stomach. Test results can often be normal when reflux is present, but an endoscopy may detect inflammation of the esophagus (esophagitis) or other complications. An endoscopy can also be used to collect a sample of tissue (biopsy) to be tested for complications such as Barrett's esophagus. A monitor is placed in your esophagus to identify when, and for how long, stomach acid regurgitates there. The monitor connects to a small computer that you wear around your waist or with a strap over your shoulder. The monitor might be a thin, flexible tube (catheter) that's threaded through your nose into your esophagus, or a clip that's placed in your esophagus during an endoscopy and that gets passed into your stool after about two days.

 

The most common risk factors for GERD include anything that obstructs the esophagus or stomach region such as hiatal hernia, pregnancy, and scleroderma.   Other proven risk factors include obesity, smoking, and alcohol usage.  Many prescription medications list GERD or acid reflux as a common side effect so this should always be considered . The popular belief is that acid reflux is due to an excessive amount of hydrochloric acid in the stomach.  New science has revealed that this is not the case.  GERD is most often caused by too little hydrochloric acid being secreted by the stomach
