Heartburn aka GERD
Recent statistics from the US Department of Health and Human Services indicate that about 60% of the US population will suffer from GERD at some point in their lives. What and how fast we eat, medications, environmental toxins, and stress can all contribute to inappropriate digestion. While some cases may require medication temporarily, most cases can actually be treated with dietary changes and healing of the damaged tissue through specific nutrients. Also, as noted in the study below and on the packaging of the medication long term use of Proton Pump Inhibitors can lead to nutritional deficiencies, GI infections, Osteopenia and other health issues. We use a comprehensive history and lab testing to evaluate underlying causes of GERD and possible secondary deficiencies of nutrients.
