Are you feeling the burn a little too often with acid reflux? If you’re finally ready to get rid of that burn, it’s time to ditch the antacids in treated correctly at its root cause. |
When people are struggling with acid reflux, they tend to use antacids and or PPIs to treat this condition. While these may help reduce the discomfort from the burn, as soon as you stop using them, the pain and the discomfort comes back, and you realize that you’re not actually being treated at all.
But the truth is that even though you know some of these are over-the-counter medications, using them in the long term especially, can cause adverse reactions to your gut health. It’s not healthy for your gut.
One, they don’t heal your acid reflux and they can also help bacterial overgrowth take place in crowd out, you know, good bacteria and cause more serious issues.
When people don’t have sufficient stomach acid but can just sit down in your stomach and ferment and this can cause gas and bloating pain and discomfort.
The low stomach acid can also loosen the opening to the throat and cause acid to wash up. This gives people the idea that they have too much stomach acid which is rarely true.
Having enough stomach acid is protective. It protects us against pathogens and other bacteria that can take root in our gut and crowd out all the beneficial bacteria. Having enough stomach acid can also cause gut dysbiosis like SIBO, or small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, where bacteria find their way from the large intestine up into the small intestine where they don’t belong.
There are some ways you can help with your stomach acid reflux, stop the burn, and improve gut health.
Decreasing stress to reduce cortisol because that suppresses stomach acid. It can increase the stomach acid by replenishing healthy bacteria.
Gut testing because a poor diet can feed the bad bacteria.
Look into gut testing to see if you do have bacterial overgrowth and to see if you have other pathogens like H. pylori, for example, which can be contributing to your low stomach acid.
