Why Acid Reflux Occurs?

Mar 30 2022

What is acid reflux?

Our digestive system holds valve-like muscles (upper and lower esophageal sphincters) between the esophagus and the stomach. They either allow or stop the entry of food from the esophagus into the stomach, based on the body’s current need. When these muscles are not healthy enough or fall weak, we start having issues like Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease, commonly known as Acid Reflux, where these muscles remain open, allowing the acids from the stomach to flow back up into the esophagus resulting in severe heartburn.

Acid reflux has four levels in terms of severity – mild, moderate, severe, and one that may lead to esophageal cancer.

Homeopathy for Acid Reflux

Homeopathy is the gentlest form of medicine known to mankind. It works on the philosophy of respecting the body’s wisdom “to protect and heal itself”, which is facilitated by tiny amounts of natural products in a highly potent form. An infinitesimal dose of this medicine heals and balances the system by working with body’s vital force, from within.

Homeopathy works gently and reduces the intensity of symptoms while treating the root cause behind the disorder.
