Reflux or heartburn are the same thing. Great news for those who suffer it and want to get rid of it. New procedure that is less involved than the traditional surgery and seems as effective as the gold standard Nissen Fundoplication. Check this out


Today we can find several over the counter remedies to the symptom we call heartburn.

Although it may sound harmless, heartburn could be a sign of a more serious problem and lead to even cancer if left untreated.

There is a medical group finally urging the FDA to force the drug companies to put a label warning of the possibility of developing cancer in the esophagus if reflux is not treated.

I know that we are in the era of DIY, but your health is a precious thing and symptoms should not be ignored or treated with over the counter remedies. Get checked and make sure that it is not something that needs correction. Heartburn that persists or that requires the frequent use of medications is not something to be ignored. The medications out there only treat the symptoms and not the cause. Reflux occurs due to a mechanical defect in the mechanism that prevents acid from the stomach backing up into the esophagus. Medications only lower the acidity, but the reflux continues and the damage also continues and could lead to cancer in the long term.

If you have heartburn, see your doctor. Get evaluated. There is a cure for it and you do not have to live with it.
