Why is Acid Reflux on the Rise?
Have any of you noticed how many people are now suffering with acid reflux? It makes me wonder if this always existed but it went undiagnosed. What did people do before the term 'acid reflux' was used? They probably got heartburn a lot, and used natural remedies. Thing is though, what is causing such a lot of people to even get heartburn and acid problems?
It has to be our lifestyles, probably a mix of diet and stress I would say. I was diagnosed about eight years ago but just try and manage it with diet now. I don't agree with taking acid-supressants (PPIs) because the body needs to make acid. That's natural. To stop something natural happening can't be good for the body I would have thought.
