PPIs have also been linked to pneumonia and Clostridium difficile infection and PPI therapy has led to an increase in hospital mortality in about 90% of patients (13,14).

How To Manage Acid Reflux

Adam Schoenfeld, an internal medicine resident at the University of California, San Francisco suggest that PPI prescription is an inappropriate treatment for most patients.

Instead, he suggests that sufferers start by changing their diet, stop smoking or reduce their alcohol consumption (15).


Stomach acid plays an important role in breaking down food and absorbing nutrients, and also kills bacteria and microbes.

Long-term maintenance use of acid-suppressing drugs like proton pump inhibitors may disrupt these processes and make people more susceptible to both infections and nutritional deficits, experts say.

You can fix your acid reflux by taking ½ teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water after your meal and every two hours until your symptoms subside.

Sodium bicarbonate, which your pancreas and kidneys already produce naturally, neutralizes excess acid (16).

Heartburn can also be caused by your body producing too little acid and therefore not being able to digest your food properly.

This is especially true for adults over the age of 50. Too little acid is typically caused by poor diet and candida overgrowth. To prevent symptoms, drink 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in 8 ounces of water before each meal.
