Most people who are struggling with symptoms like a burning sensation in their esophagus or regurgitation of acid, assume that the cause of their acid reflux is excess acid secretion or
hyperacidity. However, hyperacidity is not the most common cause.
But what is??
There are four main causes to acid reflux symptoms and they all require a different healing approach.
- Overwhelmed stomach
The easiest thing to do would be to pop a pill to get rid of the acid so it won't make its way up your esophagus. But in Ayurveda we consider acid reflux to be an imbalance in your body and
taking an antacid pill might even cause more harm than do good. When we don't remove the root cause the symptoms will eventually increase and spread throughout the body. So why not find the root
cause and rebalance your body?
In Ayurveda we consider all these processes reversible and most cases don't take very long to
improve. But we never consider our treatments to be a quick fix. Your body and mind will need time and dedication to heal.
Below we will go into a little more detail for each type of acid reflux and how to figure out which type of acid reflux you have.
