The DANGERS that Lurk in Severe Acid Reflux

Jul 10, 2008
One of the most distressing aspects of GERD as it is known (gastroesophageal reflux disease) is that it is chronic and will return to plague many people who have already suffered from it once. A severe acid reflex condition can in turn cause worse medical complications.

So what really is acid reflux disease and how does serious acid reflux disease come about? What are the different serious acid reflux complications that then contribute to worsening the situation?

To make matters even more complicated, it is not always obvious and requires further investigation to know if a patient is suffering from serious acid reflex difficulties. When stomach contents get pushed back into the esophagus, the medical name for this is gastroesophageal reflux disease. This stomach content contains bile and pepsin amongst other things. It attacks the cells lining the esophagus and corrodes the lining. This is the main cause of heartburn severe acid reflux problems.

Overall, serious acid reflux happens a lot. Data points to older people being more likely to suffer the affliction of serious acid reflux. Much of the population is already a victim of severe acid reflux difficulties with related unpleasantness such as heartburn. Although for many the symptoms could be worse, for others they can quickly degenerate and become ramifications of severe acid reflux.

The critical thing to do for a victim of serious acid reflux is to take the correct action quickly. The reason for this is that serious acid reflux can in turn cause other health problems and therefore the quick and effective management of serious acid reflux is doubly important.

Here are some examples of serious complications due to acid reflux that can happen if someone ignores the need to remedy a severe GERD condition.

Severe esophageal inflammation: known as Erosive Esophagitis

Narrowing of the esophagus. Severe acid reflux restricts the space in the esophagus making it difficult for someone to eat or even to drink.

Severe acid reflux can lead to Barrett's esophagus.

Severe acid reflux can cause medical problems in the throat, in the pulmonary cavities and even in the teeth.

Because conventional medicine which is based on over the counter medicaments only treats the external symptoms of severe acid reflux and not the causes, it will not help with severe acid reflux because it does not target or address the underlying factors. Solutions for someone to handle severe acid reflux basically divide into two categories. The first is conventional medicine and the second is alternative medicine. However natural remedies for holistic cures are alone in their capability to resolve the real causes and they are therefore more effective.
