Are Acid Reflux Symptoms Linked to Cancer?

Anyone that has ever suffered from acid reflux can tell you it’s just plain uncomfortable. But, it is possible to have acid reflux without the typical digestive complaints? Well, yes you can and this particular type of silent reflux is linked with esophageal cancer.  Now that I’ve brought up the word cancer you are probably wondering just what are the symptoms common with silent acid reflux…

Many of the symptoms of silent reflux might seem like the symptoms of a common cold:

  • Sore throat
  • Coughing
  • Post-nasal drip
  • Continued throat clearing

Cold-like symptoms are uncomfortable and may not seem serious. But, when silent acid reflux symptoms persist, they can lead to a condition called Barret’s esophagus and even esophageal cancer. Dr. Oz calls esophageal cancer, “One of the deadliest cancers in the United States.”

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

With a functional medicine approach to acid reflux symptoms, you can find help for the underlying causes of acid reflux, which are often linked with dietary choices. Common foods like gluten and chocolate may be related to your acid reflux. Caffeine, alcohol, and peppermint are also common foods that lead to acid reflux symptoms. Try eliminating these or other suspected problem foods.
