Acid Reflux - Not a Medication Problem.
On today’s episode, we are continuing a conversation we’ve had on this podcast multiple times, but with a totally new perspective: acid reflux.
According to a National Gastrointestinal Survey in 2015 with over 70,000 participants, 30% of these participants experience acid reflux on a weekly basis. And within that group, another 35% of participants experience acid reflux even WITH taking PPI’s - a pharmaceutical designed to block acid production in the stomach and - theoretically - end acid reflux.
Among the participants, younger individuals, women, Latino individuals, and participants with irritable bowel syndrome or Crohn’s disease were more likely to have continued GERD symptoms, even when taking PPIs.
So - the big question -
- Why do we get acid reflux?
- And why does acid reflux persist, even after taking medication and pharmaceuticals?
On today’s episode, I’m diving into a rarely discussed topic in acid reflux that is KEY is solving this stubborn GI problem - fascial restrictions.
