#1 Cause Of Acid Reflux And A Simple CureAlmost everyone experiences acid reflux once in a while. But for some it’s a lifelong, agonizing suffering.

This may be changing.

Because the Journal of Population Therapeutics and Clinical Pharmacology has just published a study revealing the number one cause of acid reflux/GERD and a simple way to improve it.

This research involved 185 participants, all diagnosed with acid reflux.

The participants were fairly diverse. 48.65% were male and 51.35% were female. Their ages ranged from 18 to over 61 years old. Most belonged to the middle class (40.54%), with the remainder split between low and high-income backgrounds.

The scientists wanted to shed light on how body mass index scores affect GERD symptom severity. Accordingly, the participants were categorized based on the World Health Organization’s BMI classifications: underweight, normal weight, overweight, and obese. BMI was calculated using the standard formula (weight in kg divided by height in meters squared).

The researchers assessed the intensity and frequency of GERD symptoms using validated questionnaires, and also collected their participants detailed medical histories.

This is what they discovered.

1. A high number of the acid reflux patients were overweight (40.54%) or obese (29.73%), suggesting that excessive body weight might contribute to the development of acid reflux.

2. There was a clear relationship between increased BMI and heightened acid reflux severity.

3. Only 4.4% of patients with a normal BMI experienced severe GERD symptoms. In contrast, 38.7% of overweight and 23.6% of obese patients reported severe symptoms.

4. Common health conditions among patients were high blood pressure, diabetes, gastrointestinal issues, asthma, and cardiovascular disease.

The clear association between higher BMI and more severe GERD symptoms underscores the importance of weight management in treating acid reflux.

One could even argue that losing weight is the most effective way to reduce acid reflux/GERD.

Fortunately, there is a simpler way to eliminate acid reflux/GERD permanently. In fact you can do it in as little as five minutes using the simple approach explained here…
