Do you Suffer From Heartburn or Acid Reflux?Jan 24, 2023
Did you ever wonder why you have this so often? Do you take Tums or other anti-acid medications?
Many people suffer from Acid Reflux or heartburn, especially after what is considered a healthy meal! Did you know that sometimes even the food that we know as healthy, even common foods such as whole grain rice or gluten-free oats, may not be healthy for you?
Gastric Reflux is A Common Symptom of Gluten Exposure
And Most people have no idea that this could be related to gluten exposure.
Reflux, heartburn, ulcer disease, and even hernias are some of the most common diseases that can go into remission with the implementation of a TRUE gluten-free diet.
Make Sure Your Doctor Orders the Right Tests
It is common for physicians to rule out infection (primarily H. pylori) in these patients, but gluten intolerance is very rarely investigated.
People with a gastric disease are screened for celiac disease but the celiac blood tests and biopsies are extremely inaccurate and have a high degree of false negatives and many people have non-celiac gluten sensitivity. Therefore, testing them for celiac disease is a complete waste of time and extremely misleading.
That is why I recommend genetic testing.
Genetic Testing is more accurate. The results are not affected by diet and are not accompanied with the flaws of celiac blood and biopsy testing. Drugs That Block Stomach Acid Have Dangerous Consequences.
Taking heavy doses of antacids and prescription reflux medications are not the answer.
Taking these drugs every day only serves to neutralize or reduce stomach acid. Most times you end up with worse problems in the long term with digestion.
Reduction of stomach acid is a major problem as it increases the risk for:
-Vitamin and Mineral deficiencies (calcium, B-12, folic acid, iron, and zinc.
-Protein and fat malabsorption as well as indigestion.
The chronic use of these medications works against your natural physiology.
It does not treat the actual cause of the disease but merely reduces the symptoms, creating a false sense of hope that it’s actually working.
If you want to get to the root cause of your poor digestion symptoms or get Gluten Genetic Testing to rule out Gluten as the culprit, email me to set up an appointment so we can work together to find a solution.
