One of the great misunderstandings of the current practice of medicine is that GERD is caused by excess stomach acid. Although stomach acid may be an element of GERD or Acid Reflux in Morrisville NC (believe it or not some people experience GERD from too little stomach acid) it is not the underlying problem. In Chinese Medicine one of the most important concepts is that of stagnation – you can imagine what this means – a slowing down of the normal flow of energy – or Qi. In the case of GERD- stomach contents back up into the esophagus for some reason – that has to do with a loss of the normal flow of digestive products along the disassembly line. Things are getting backed up because some stage of digestion has slowed down or stopped. There are tests that can help you identify (and thus cure) the stage of breakdown.
