Dairy Intolerance | Is It Behind Your Acid Reflux Symptoms?

Have you ever noticed your acid reflux flares up after a big helping of rich, delicious, creamy comfort food? It may be a hard reality to face, but your favorite cheesy, milky, or creamy indulgence may be behind your digestion problems.

 

You might be asking how can acid reflux be caused by eating dairy?

 

To understand this you may want to do some research to find out a few things about the real causes of acid reflux. Although many people think that the problem is too much stomach acid, and that a nice glass of milk is the perfect thing to put the fire out, the truth is that heartburn really happens when there is stomach acid in the wrong places or because there is not enough stomach acid.

 

When you eat something that your body does not tolerate well your stomach may not break it down as well compared with other foods. The result is indigestion and the dreaded acid reflux. In fact, functional medicine recognizes that food intolerances can trigger acid reflux. Dr. Marcelle Pick, who writes for the Huffington Post, also sees dairy as a potential culprit behind heartburn.
