What is Acid Reflux?

Acid reflux is a condition where pain or discomfort is felt due to the upper stomach and lower esophageal sphincter not closing properly.

How can I treat it naturally?

The body is wise and trying to convey to you, using the language of “symptoms”, that something you are doing is not agreeing with it.  Dr. Wells will help figure out what your body is saying and correct the problems.  Dr. Wells will first determine the underlying cause(s).  Many times reflux is a result of food intolerance.  Other specialty testing may be needed.  Then treatment can begin.

How long before I feel better?

Every patient is unique and healing happens faster for some than others.  Treatment protocols usually last from 3 – 6 months to heal the underlying cause.  Most notice improvements within a week or two.

What’s involved in natural treatment?

It is likely Dr. Wells will have you change your diet in some way.  Some natural treatments such as herbs, vitamins, minerals, or acupuncture may be needed. If there is damage in the stomach, Dr. Wells may recommend IV Nutrient Therapy.
