Acid Reflux Symptoms | How Functional Medicine Sees Them Differently

If you have acid reflux, you may look to antacids or acid lowering drugs for relief.

 

However, these medications pose certain health risks and may not address the underlying causes of your acid reflux. Functional medicine digs deeper, finding the factors that affect you as an individual to address health concerns at the source.

 

There are many lifestyle factors associated with acid reflux symptoms, especially the consumption of certain foods like

  • gluten
  • coffee
  • chocolate
  • alcohol

Even unlikely suspects like peppermint have been linked to acid reflux symptoms, as Dr. Mark Hyman also recognizes.  Practitioners of functional medicine will help you look at your lifestyle and food choices to uncover what may be leading to your symptoms.

 

Functional medicine recognizes that the real causes of acid reflux are not what many people think they are. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not an overproduction of stomach acid, but the presence of stomach acid in the wrong part of the body (like the esophagus or on the surface of a damaged stomach lining) that causes acid reflux. Functional medicine addresses the root cause.

 

Dr. Marina Rose has helped people with acid reflux and other challenging, chronic health conditions in and around the city of Sunnyvale, CA.
