When Acid Reflux Turns Deadly
Millions of people deal with the symptoms of acid reflux on a daily basis.
The heartburn. The indigestion. The bloating.
It can make your life absolutely miserable.
But if this is hitting close to home, then these uncomfortable symptoms are the least of your concerns.
Because acid reflux causes far more harm than the symptoms it is notorious for. In fact, it could be deadly.
In a study published in JAMA Otolaryngology: Head and Neck Surgery, researchers examined the connection between acid reflux and numerous types head and neck cancers in elderly people.
These include cancers of the larynx, tonsils, sinuses, and more—cancers that kill more than 360,000 people every year.
After analyzing over 13,000 patients with cancer of the upper digestive tracts, and the same number of people without cancer, the results were clear: There was a VERY STRONG connection between having GERD and developing one of these cancers.
More specifically, people with acid reflux were two to three times more likely to develop cancers of the throat, tonsils, paranasal sinuses, and larynx.
This was the very first study to make this unfortunate connection. And make no mistake… it is a MAJOR finding with MAJOR implications.
With more than 20% of the population suffering from acid reflux, this represents a real and present danger when it comes to causing cancer.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Heartburn drugs like proton pump inhibitors might temporarily take away the symptoms, but they will never solve the problem—which leaves you with an ever-increasing risk of one of these deadly cancers.
Why wait for the inevitable, when you can follow my protocol to CURE your heartburn once and for all—eliminating your symptoms AND your risk of cancer associated with the condition at the same time.
Here’s how to do it:
- Chew your food! The more you chew, the less work your stomach has to do. Sound too simple to be true? Try it for one week and you’ll be shocked at the difference.
- Drink less with meals. Hydrating during meals dilutes your stomach acid, making it less potent. As a result, undigested food can stick around and start fermenting, causing gas to build up and push the lower esophageal sphincter open.
- Avoid problem foods. Some foods are more likely to contribute to acid reflux: spicy foods, citrus, coffee, soda, fried foods, and refined starches—in other words, many of the foods you should be avoiding anyway!
- Supplement with magnesium. Magnesium deficiency is one of the root causes of acid reflux. I recommend a chelated magnesium like magnesium glycinate in a dosage of 200-800 mg per day. You'll know if it is too much for your system if you get loose stools.
To a brighter day,
