I have been doing a lot of research with regard to the newest studies which indicate what Acid Reflux medications, may contribute to Esophageal Cancer, the fastest growing cancer in the United States.
These cryptic studies, which require further investigation, always begs the question, which comes first the chicken or the egg? So what is causing the cancer, the medication or Acid Reflux? Keep in mind only those with Acid Reflux use these types of medications.
We already know that the progression of Esophageal Cancer, starts with the constant assault of acid and stomach content, on the lining of the esophagus. If this is true it is also fair to say that perhaps it isn’t the medication but it is Acid Reflux. In either case we need to do what we can to eliminate, or at the very least, mitigate the damage and progression of the breakdown of the esophageal lining.
We here at Reflux Guard believe the best way is to get to the source of the problem, which we discuss in our blogs and on our site.
We start with education, so we understand what got us into the cycle of Acid Reflux, thus damaging the esophagus. Your doctor will give you a strict died to adhere to, as well as tell you to lose weight if appropriate. This takes education and discipline, which is a challenge in itself.
Don’t waste time, start taking care of yourself and ask your doctor if raising the head of the bed is for you. If yes, an under the mattress bed wedge makes the job simple.
A Reflux Guard© is a great mattress bed wedge, which was designed to not only be easy to install but adjustable with a 10-year warrantee.
In my enthusiasm I went off track. In either case it is clear, whether medication causes cancer, Acid Reflux causes cancer, or both you have to take action to keep yourself healthy.
