Heartburn affects people in different degrees of pain. If you have chronic heartburn, you know just how painful it can be—keeping you up at night, burning your esophagus, etc. Acid reflux, if not treated, can create serious problems to your digestive system.
Dr. Frenzel, dual fellowship trained in bariatric weight loss surgery and cosmetic plastic surgery, offers acid reflux surgery to ease pain and help patients get back to a healthier lifestyle.
Acid reflux, also known as gastroesophageal, causes frequent pain on a daily basis. When the pain gets to this point, surgery is the best option. Of course, there are natural remedies to try as well. A change in diet can help alleviate the burning feeling acid reflux causes. Spicy foods and food high in fat are known to trigger heartburn. Changing your diet can not only help you alleviate heartburn, but can help you achieve a healthier lifestyle.
Another change is stress management. Many people who have a high stress lifestyle endure health issues, including heartburn. Keeping your stress level managed by exercising, meditation, organization, and other methods can decrease the chance of acid reflux.
If natural remedies do not work, try medications to alleviate heartburn. Accompanied with plenty of water, medication, such as a Vitamin D supplement, can help you lower your chance of acid reflux.
Heartburn takes place when gastrointestinal acid back up from the stomach into the esophagus. When natural and medicated remedies do not work, consider the benefits of acid reflux surgery. This procedure does not require a lot of recovery time and it is a permanent solution. Schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Frenzel to discuss all of your options and ask any questions you might have regarding the acid reflux surgery process.
