Acid reflux is a common complaint in modern society. It should not be ignored since it can cause
Barrett’s esophagus, a precancerous change to the tissue in the esophagus.
The causes of acid reflux are varied – from a hiatal hernia to food sensitivities to small intestinal bacterial overgrowth or gut dysbiosis (imbalanced gut flora). When you come to Practical Health Solutions for an appointment for treating acid reflux, I first determine the cause. This usually involves some testing. If you have already done some testing, it is helpful to have those records at our first appointment. Once we know what is causing the problem, we will use naturopathic methods to correct it. We remove the obstacles to cure so that your body can heal itself.
Most patients experience relief by a couple weeks after beginning the treatment phase. If the
acid reflux is caused by a hiatal hernia, relief may be achieved on the day of the hiatal hernia correction.
Best wishes for vibrant health!
