Acid Reflux & Heartburn
Heartburn, also called “GERD” – Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease, has many possible causes, such as being overweight, eating certain spicy or acidic foods like tomatoes or chocolate, gut flora imbalance, acidic / highly processed or high-animal-protein daily diet, and nutrient deficiencies, to name a few. Contrary to traditional thinking, acid reflux is seldom caused by an excess of stomach acid. Consequently, antacid medications such as Prilosec and Pepcid rarely resolve the problem. At Oasis Healing Arts, we provide laboratory diagnostic tests, food plans, superior-quality nutritional supplements, and even stress reduction techniques to determine your underlying imbalances and triggers of acid reflux, to alleviate your symptoms.
