Conventional wisdom says that acid reflux, heartburn and GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) are the result of too much stomach acid. But, what if I told you that having too much stomach acid is very rare? In fact, as we age, we begin to produce less stomach acid. Surprisingly, most of the time, acid reflux, heartburn and GERD are the result of too little stomach acid.
Have you ever questioned that? Have you ever wondered why your antacid seems to only work for a little while? It’s because it is only quelling the symptoms, and not addressing the underlying cause of your discomfort.
