Banishing Heartburn - Unlocking the Secrets to Lasting Relief

Feeling heavy, uncomfortable, and experiencing that burning sensation? You're not alone! Heartburn, also known as Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), is a common visitor to primary care offices, affecting a whopping one out of three visits. Crazy, right? And it's on the rise, with 18-27% of adults in North America experiencing it at least once a week, and some dealing with it daily.

It tends to strike those who are obese, smokers, or aging individuals. Symptoms? Unfortunately, they can range from feeling like there's a lump in your throat to that burning sensation in your oesophagus, throat, or chest. And let's not forget the delightful sour or bitter taste in your mouth, along with nausea and regurgitation.

Now, the culprit behind this uncomfortable affair could be one of five things: low stomach acid, wonky oesophageal movements, a weak lower oesophageal sphincter (LES), hiatal hernia, or delayed gastric emptying. But, guess what? Through my experience, I've found that it's often a mix of low stomach acid, overeating, and a weak LES that's to blame.

So, your stomach probably isn't overly acidic (surprising, right?). But something's definitely not right in there. Ready to give your stomach the TLC it deserves? Let's fix this discomfort together!
