The medical terminology for acid reflux is gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It refers to the varied clinical types of stomach and duodenal content reflux into the esophagus. Heartburn is the most common manifestation of GERD. It can vary from an occasional mild burning after overeating to a persistent severe discomfort that severely limits a person's lifestyle. It may be accompanied by regurgitation of gastric contents. This latter group of people may complain of nighttime wheezing, coughing, hoarseness, a need to clear the throat repeatedly, or a sensation of deep pressure at the base of the neck.
Drawbacks of drug therapy for Acid Reflux
Anti-reflux drugs are like a double-edged sword. They may be very effective in suppressing gastric acid secretion, but strong inhibition of gastric acid (HCl) secretion can at the same time cause an array of digestive problems. This is because people who are taking these agents do not secrete adequate gastric acid and enzymes for digesting food that is present in the stomach. This, in turn, causes indigestion, bloating, flatulence, constipation, esophageal candidiasis, as well as possible side effects impacting other organs. These side effects are more severe when a high protein diet (high content of meat, cheese, dairy products, and beans) is consumed, since protein digestion is initiated in the stomach and is essentially the only type of enzymatic digestion that occurs there.
Anti-Flux, unlike drugs, acts locally by coating the upper gastric and esophageal mucosal surfaces. Because Anti-Flux does not neutralize gastric acid appreciably, or suppress its production, it will not interfere with important digestive, antimicrobial, or metabolic functions of gastric acid.*
