Acid reflux is when acid from the stomach regurgitates back up into the oesophagus where there is no protection, unlike the stomach walls which has thick mucus

This can be caused by a variety of reasons:

  1. Food intolerance (dairy being the no. 1)
  2. Eating when stressed / being stressed generally
  3. Too little stomach acid (yes too little means the stomach acid sits in the stomach too long)
  4. Bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine causing the stomach to bloat and bulge and move up into the chest
  5. Late night eating of large meals
  6. Excess fried foods, spicy foods, peppermint and chocolate
  7. Medications

Many people are given stomach acid blocking medication, which long term affects the ability to digest protein, to keep bacteria out of the stomach and reduces the absorption of minerals, which potentially affects bone health
