Acid Reflux Treatment
Acid Reflux Treatments
Acid reflux is a condition in which acid from the stomach flows back up into the esophagus, which can cause a burning sensation, chronic cough and often an unpleasant taste. This can be uncomfortable or even painful for some people. Many people can reduce acid reflux symptoms by making lifestyle changes such as eating smaller meals and adjusting how they sleep at night. Traditionally speaking, individuals that need additional relief, may rely on prescribed acid reflux treatments to reduce acid production, such as proton pump inhibitors or H2 blockers. In functional medicine, we believe in finding the root cause of acid reflux which may be due to food sensitivities, bacterial infections, hiatal hernias, and even low stomach acid levels.
