A different angle... in regards to reflux

I'm wondering, if... like how people get rebound headaches after they detox from excessive doses of painkillers for the initial headache...

is it possible that reflux not caused by the known bacteria or other causes, is due to excessively drinking milk/ taking tablets to relieve the symptoms? The mechanism is plausible... the body creating too much acid to counterract the alkali, causing a vicious cycle.

has this ever been investigated before?

Re: A different angle... in regards to reflux

In general, regular antacids don't cause rebound, unless you take them at WAY above the recommended doses.

However, the stronger acid medications, the proton pump inhibitors, do cause acid rebound. And in some people, milk can make reflux worse, especially if you are at all lactose intolerant.

Re: A different angle... in regards to reflux

fair enough. i never really tried the medication, i was just drinking pints of milk at a time when i had a bad attack. then after i stopped doing that and just endured the pain for a couple days it got a lot better.

might be something for people suffering it for months with no known cause to think about

Re: A different angle... in regards to reflux

Naturally chicken produces stomach acid, because chicken contains a lot of fat.

Sweet potatoes are an excellent choice, though I wonder about the citrus. If I dared put citrus in my mouth, I'd regret it for hours!
