Low stomach acid causes most Acid Reflux symptoms, according to Dr. Patti Kim, ND (Naturopathic Doctor). In this video interview, Dr. Kim discusses: 1) The symptoms of Acid Reflux, including burning, heat or pain sensation in chest and/or throat area, regurgitation, belching due to the sphincter being weakened, feeling full sooner than normal, chronic sore throats or laryngitis.

2) The conventional treatment for Acid Reflux, including calcium carbonate antacids such as Tums, Maalox, Mylanta; or proton pump inhibitors such as Prilosec, Nexium, Prevacid and Protonix.

3) That neutralizing stomach acid or stopping stomach acid production with artificial drugs can be harmful to the body because of the numerous side effects associated with the drugs, and that this type of conventional symptom treatment does not treat the root cause.

4) That stress is a primary cause of lowering stomach acid.
5) That stomach acids leak into the esophagus because of a weak sphincter (often due to stress).
6) Factors that influence acid reflux: poor nutrition, foods that cause inflammation, eating spicy foods and alcohol.
7) Natural Medicine treatment of acid reflux includes: stomach pH may be tested; goal is to raise stomach acid (or lower if too high) through dietary changes, exercise, herbs, nutritional supplements, digestive supplements and Homeopathic remedies.
8) Especially important is removal of processed foods and eating whole, organic foods.
9) Dr. Kim has a great success rate of stopping acid reflux: most of her patients are symptom free within a week.

Stefan Schultze says:

Dear Dr.Patti, I have developed GERD this January it came out of nowhere. I
got some clues what triggered it. I sometimes do part time modelling here
in Taiwan and in January during one shooting I suddenly got an anxiety
attack I never had before. I also used to do lots of abs work out and drink
coffee without eating. Than around that time it suddenly started giving me
gulp feelings in my throat and weeks of sore throats. Docs checked my
stomach and put me on Nexium which I took 2 months not realizing it was the
reason that was giving me incredible stomach/abdominal muscle cramps. I
stopped Nexium around 9 weeks ago. After I stopped I got something one
could describe as the worst acid reflux basically starting when I woke up
regardless of what I eat and sort of stopping in the evenings. I read the
Nexium rebound period can last months but I still think it is not just that
and I am back to where I was before I took. After I stopped Nexium my
guts/stomach also seem to have slowed down and often after I eat it feels
like food is just sitting on the guts still 9 weeks after it. I had all
kinds of checks done and there is no cancerous things in my stomach/throat.
Currently I am taking Zantac – I can not get around not taking it or I will
get sore throats again and gulps in my throat. I hate taking medications
and since I live in Taiwan I want to try Chinese medicine and acupuncture.
My question to you; Has anyone ACTUALLY been cured from GERD with what you
suggest? I do not doubt anything you mention makes total sense to me but I
don’t find success stories on the web curing GERD.

Is there a cure for GERD?

Aziz RASHIAD says:

the Stomach pH? coz i always been told i produce too much Acid … maybe my

thanks again 

penusenvy says:

I have had this nightmare condition for years and it gets me so down I can
cry. I have it just now. I find eating a few slices of apple can help.
Chamomile tea is soothing. Once I was so desperate I tried the pickle juice
(which was recommended on some other site) – it did help somewhat. I have
all the meds, currently stopped taking and trying HCL but I feel so
miserable and worried too. I never had this until I was late pregnancy and
boy did I get it bad. Been my unwelcome friend ever since.

I truly sympathise with all who have this. Currently giving up all wheat
and most carbs to try and heal myself. Peace.

Tina Tolbert says:

gabsylv says:

How do I use betaine hydrochloride to see if it will help my GERD? 

sunil sai says:

Great Video, Thank you!

I was a peptic ulcer patient and my family got full worried about it!

I could cure the ulcer without medications with the help of
1) god’s grace
2) videos like yours
3) “body ph meter” mobile app by lokesh.
4) diet , meditation and exercises

Now, I know that medications are not required

Patrick Bislev says:

I feel like i have to burp all the time, a constant nausea & it has
dramatically intensified during the last couple of days where i have been
drinking a lot of alcohol & eating more processed food than i am used to. I
became & student & my lifestyle change dramatically from one day to
another, because people celebrate. Can it be caused by reflux or GERD & can
baking soda help as a remedy? Thanks for the video.

worldys says:

@worldys Also she has drinks thickened with Xantham Gum daily as she
aspirates. I buy organic food and she doesnt have any fast food or
processed food. she has a very balanced diet with very little meat as I am
a vegetarian. What would you recommend, to you think Apple Cider Vinegar
might help in her case?

JK says:

I cured my heartburn without any medicine. I know this is going to sound
crazy, but I had hiatal hernia and was getting heartburn even when I drank
just water. Upon waking up in the morning on an empty stomach drink 3-4
cups of water. Than get on the ball of your feet and drop down on your
heals. Do this about 20 times. The weight of the water drops your
hernia/stomach down to where it belongs. You will no longer have heartburn

LarryCook333 says:

@elle241983 It sounds like you are eating well; do eat whole, live foods?
That is, is a lot of your food raw, and from the produce section? Have you
tried going vegan for a while to see what happens? I suggest you try vegan
for two weeks, and also take probiotics (Bio-K once per day is best) and
digestive enzymes, and report back and let us know if that worked.

elle241983 says:

I purchased raw enzymes for women and its making me feel good I changed to
a vegan diet since starting today however during the weekend I didnt have
any milk since I wasnt really aware of what vegan really ment. I purchased
bioK but at $6 each I cant afford one of these daily so I have three
options as probiotics can you tell me wich one would you pick.

93fnoor says:

acid cider vinegar i have a bottle of this and i take i teaspoon in water
acetic acid in vinegar lowers stomach acidity (increases its pH) since
acetic acid is a weaker acid than hydrochloric acid. It is also believed
that vinegar (acetic acid along with its acetate salt) may help buffer and
maintain stomach acid at a pH level of about 3.0. In this milder acidic
environment, the stomach can still efficiently digest food but it causes
less problems with the esophagus and thus less heartburn.

worldys says:

Thanks for sharing. What would you suggest for a 2 yr old with GERD on 30mg
of prevacid. Her esophagus was not attached to her stomach at birth(EA/TEF)
and was repaired at birth. Because it doesnt function properly, food
sometimes goes back in her nose and she has lots of reflux. Sometimes she
has long coughing spells while eating that sound like croup attacks and it
is heartbreaking. I’m trying to turn to a different route to see if that
could help.She’s taking Culturelle daily for constipation

LarryCook333 says:

@charitywinters Thank you for the props Charity.:)

aaerosteve says:

I stopped taking the antibiotic “minocycline”? and the hearburn slowed down
quite a bit, but still there. I will see if I can find one and try some
other known homeopathic treatments until then. Thank you so much for
responding and helping me :0 )

joseph alcala says:

A way to stop acid reflux is also sleeping on your left side, try it it’s

warzoned1 says:

Well, I don’t have acid reflux but this doctor is beautiful, so if the
problem ever comes up I’ll know who to ask.

VJWU says:

Near the end of the video, did she say “marshmellows”?

Ateamcaptain says:

The cure? Don’t over eat, don’t drink alcohol, eat more dried fruits like
figs and dates and have 1oz of wheatgrass juice in the morning and one at
night. Cured me fast and I tried all the pills and different cures. Acid
reflux seems to be caused by the body not being in acid balance. The
alkalinity of the foods I mentioned fix that.

23swaggerking says:

@swtwatermelon im with you man. meds are not really working for me just a
bit but i have to go back to my doctor and review my x rays and see where
to go from there.

davidsmithhealth says:

Excellent video, Dr. Kim. I especially liked the mention of organic foods
as helpful and your explanation of why artificial drugs neutralize stomach
acid and why this is bad.

Nyck461 says:

It really worked? How big the ball should be? In the morning I need to take
my breakfast to go to work. CAn it be taken after that exercise? Thanks
