Diagnostic Tool

In most cases, acid reflux and GERD are merely a symptom of underlying digestive problems caused by one or more factors such as: bacterial or fungal infection, neurological impairment, obesity, stress, diet, allergic reactions, posture, enzyme insufficiency and hypochloridia. Pinpointing the precise cause(s) is a key component of recovery. Conventional acid suppression drugs like proton pump inhibitors and antacids simply mask symptoms, neglecting the underlying causes of reflux. The Reflux Defense System is a systematic approach that ascertains the body's areas of weakness and targets the causes directly with natural remedies, dietary supplements, exercises and diet.
