The Real Cause of Acid Reflux

Acid reflux (or GERD disease) happens when, for some reason, the muscles above your stomach (spincters) can’t prevent the acidic fluid in your stomach from flowing up into your esophagus.

Sometimes this is because those muscles have become weak. More often it’s caused by an imbalance in the stomach’s acid production.

You see, when the food you eat is not digested properly, it begins to ferment, creating pressure in your stomach.

As that pressure builds, the spincters can’t hold the acidic fluid back so it flows up to your esophagus, and even all the way up to your throat
