Acupuncture and Naturopathic remedies can offer lasting relief from acid reflux and digestive problems safely, naturally, and without the use of prescription medications. Problems associated with digestion are common and the symptoms of GERD, or gastroesophageal reflux disease, include:
Heartburn (acid reflux)
Chest pain (just behind the breastbone)
Upper abdomen pain
Bloating and feeling too full after eating
Nausea after eating
Dysphagia (difficulty in swallowing)
Hoarseness of the voice
There are many causes of GERD such as a diet rich in acidic or fatty foods, overeating, stress and emotional distress, side effects of certain medications, and structural deformities in the esophagus and digestive tract. Although GERD is a common disorder, it should never be accepted as “normal.” Over time, acid reflux can cause erosive esophagitis and even lead to esophageal cancer, amongst other problems.
Silicon Valley Health practitioners seek to identify the root cause of the distress and rule out more serious health conditions such as heart disease, peptic ulcers, or cancer. We work to eliminate both the cause and the triggers of distress. In many cases, treatment for acid reflux will include, acupuncture along with herbal treatment and diet/lifestyle changes to promote wellness and optimal health.
If you are looking for safe and natural treatment for acid reflux and GERD, please schedule an appointment to discuss a care plan tailored to your needs.
