Webinar Description
Gastroesopahgeal reflux disease is an increasingly common disorder in both adults and children. It is estimated that 14 to 20 percent of all adults in the U.S. have some degree of gastroesophageal reflux and spend 10 billion dollars a year on proton-pump inhibitors (PPIs). Two PPIs sit comfortably in the top five list of pharmaceuticals sold in the U.S. Despite the use of proton-pump inhibitors, the incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma, has been increasing significantly in the past twenty years and the side effect profile of proton-pump inhibitors has grown tremendously.  We will visit the indications for the use of antacids along with the contraindications and side effects, and also review the different PPIs, their mechanism of action and side effects. At long last, we will discuss the etiology of GERD from a naturopathic perspective including the role of food allergies, dietary modifications for the treatment of GERD and the research relating to very effective naturopathic treatments.
