Acid Reflux and GERD Relief | San Francisco Chiropractor

Acid reflux and GERD have become a common problem for many San Francisco and Bay Area residents. A condition which was once synonymous with overeaters and spicy food connoisseurs, has now found its way into the lives of millions of otherwise “healthy” individuals.

Unfortunately, most San Francisco and Bay Area residents have a hard time keeping the symptoms of Acid Reflux / GERD in check. While dietary changes only improve symptoms a little bit, proton-pump inhibitors are usually prescribed to keep the production of acid levels to a minimum. Long-term use of such drugs (over one year) has been associated with heart disease / heart attacks, constipation, diarrhea, and even osteoporosis-related fractures of the hip, spine, and wrists.

Eliminating The Source of Acid Reflux

As you may already know, the nervous system is responsible for every function of the human body. From movement, breathing, digestion, and circulatory functions, to cardiovascular health and the immune system – therefore, the health and proper function of our bodies depend on uninterrupted nerve energy.

When nerve energy is interrupted or diminished somewhere along the spine – due to poor posture, automobile accidents, or sports injuries – the organs that depend on nerve energy will cease to function correctly, and go into a state of dysfunction and eventually, disease.

Studies have shown that most patients suffering with acid reflux / GERD share one common trait; poor posture or spinal misalignment in the upper or mid back. The only logical way to eliminate excess pressure from the delicate nerves flowing out of the spine therefore, is to realign the spine back to its normal curvature, and allow nerve energy to flow freely.

With proper nerve flow, organs such as the stomach will start to function and heal the way they were intended to.
