Amazing results was acheived through my Acid Reflux Program!

Along with the overwhelming response to the program, I’ve also been fortunate to hear from some of you first hand to tell me of your experience with acid reflux and how my program has helped.

With any chronic condition such as acid reflux can be, one tends to notice themes when reading through client correspondence. One in particular is the accompanying depression symptoms that accompany chronic acid reflux.

Acid Reflux is also known as Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). In this the liquid or food omes up from the stomach and enters into esophagus and this creates pain and heartburn.

The lower esophageal sphincter (LED) muscles are responsible for closing and opening the esophagus. These muscles act as a valve and when working properly, prevent food and liquids from the stomach from coming back up into the esophagus.

Some people experience long term acid reflux disease but they don’t experience heartburn. Chest pain, bad throat, dry cough, bad breath and difficulty swallowing are reported by them.

People who suffer at least two per week are considered that they suffer from chronic acid reflux. It does not only bring pain, in long term it can lead to erosion of tooth enamel, cancer, throat damage and respiratory damage.

As with other chronic conditions, chronic GERD sufferers experience over a thirty percent chance of developing symptoms of depression, compared to roughly ten percent of otherwise healthy people.

Fearing acid reflux people do not eat much and they are afraid of going out with friends and this brings in depression. It is like one leads to another.

They just spend most of their time thinking about different ways to manage the problem. Moreover, people do not to many things they would otherwise love to do.

Some times not so healthy lifestyles might lead to depression, which is just increased by GERD. Over drinking is an example. This is actually depressive and can bring acid reflux too.

Even if you do not experience depression from your acid reflux condition I would recommend you to try the natural acid reflux programs. They come with proven results and with no side effects.
