Chiropractic Treatment of Acid Reflux/G.E.R.D.

Chiropractic Treatment of Acid Reflux/G.E.R.D.

One of the first things most doctors do when a patient has acid reflux, or GERD is to put the patient on an antacid. However, an antacid has the wrong biochemistry as it neutralizes one of the most important of all body secretions, Hydrochloric Acid (HCL). The single most important thing the stomach is designed to do is make acid. In addition to preventing toxins from reaching the small intestines, it neutralizes harmful bacteria and breaks down life-functioning minerals and metals for utilization and assimilation to prevent complications associated with mineral, and metal absorption problems such as osteoporosis, anemia, restless leg syndrome, muscle cramps, arthritis, joint damage, etc. Think of the stomach as a holding reservoir outside of the body. One of its jobs is to make an acidic medium to neutralize toxins before they enter the small intestine. Another is to deliver valuable nutrients for optimal physiological reactions for our bodies to thrive. And man thinks he knows better than our creator by prescribing protein pump inhibitors (like Prevacid and Nexium) which shut down the only function it was designed for! Predisposing us to a plethora of physiological symptomatic problems, complications, and further downstream complete medical mayhem. Hence why for years homeopaths have recommended apple cider vinegar before meals to prevent acid reflux symptoms. My approach to restoring the stomach to wellness and eliminating acid reflux (and all of its symptoms) begins with Hydrochloric Acid (HCL) and enzyme supplementation via a restoration protocol. This acid reflux treatment eliminates the need for medications and their undesired effects in a non-surgical, non-invasive manner.
