Acid Reflux and Heartburn:

A functional medicine approach

As one of the most common gastrointestinal disorders, Acid reflux affects about 20% of the population. 


Acid blockers or proton pump inhibitors (PPI's) are one of the most prescribed medications and are generally the only "fix" for acid reflux if you seek medical attention for this issue. They are intended for short term use only and, long term use can cause major issues, yet many people use them for years. 


In this month's discussion, we will help you understand the reasons why people experience acid reflux and heartburn and how we approach addressing the underlying causes so that you can avoid or discontinue using PPI's. 


If you suffer with acid reflux and/or heartburn you won't want to miss this month's discussion! 


Throughout this series, we will uncover the true causes of disease, how you can prevent (and even reverse) chronic disease and how to improve your quality of life. Our current sick care system is failing miserably, which is no surprise - but you are not stuck. You will be armed with evidence-based knowledge to help you learn how to advocate for yourself to improve your quality of life rather than masking symptoms with a pharmaceutical drug. If you’re sitting on a tack, does it make sense to take aspirin for the pain?
