    With so many ailments presenting themselves to patients these days, I could say that I am seeing more and more acid reflux.     It is estimated that about 5% to 7% of the global population, including infants & children, suffer from gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD).  Although 

commonly, GERD often is undiagnosed because its symptoms are either downplayed or misunderstood.  Left untreated, this condition can lead to serious complications, including scarring of the Esophagus, and many increase the risk of esophageal problems.


     So how do you know if you have GERD and something else? While you should be sure to check for hiatal hernia first persistent heartburn with acid reflux is the most frequent complication of GERD.  Other symptoms include chest pain, Hoarseness in the morning, trouble swallowing.  The backup of digestive fluids in the esophagus may also cause dry cough, bad breath and acid indigestion.  However it is also possible that you may have this condition without experiencing any apparent symptoms.   Conventional Western medical treatment involves acid-suppressing drugs which they are many----.  In my experience: GERD began and continues to be a functional disorder—nothing more.

       Drug treatments, including the ever-popular over-the-counter antacids, are all about suppressing the warning sign—HEARTBURN.  Not only does this overlook the real cause of the disorder, but it is the basis for food allergies, bowel disorders and calcium related problems including conditions that may result include—Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Sinus infections, and osteoporosis and other conditions.     Like I said Acid-Reflux is a functional disorder.  This means Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is trying to tell you that an organ or a gland is not happy.  And over time nutritional deficiencies will compromise the proper function of the endocrine system.     Endocrine system is instrumental in regulating your mood, growth and development, tissue function and metabolism, as well as sexual function, reproductive process and digestive functions.  Yes!!! The Endocrine system regulates stomach acid production.  

      This acid reflux could also be related to Pituitary gland.  Provide proper nutrition for this gland and magic could happen.
