Pearls of Wisdom
Doug Winfrey and Dr. Wallach discuss a news article regarding research on acid reflux. Reseach indicates that as many as 44% of Americans suffer heartburn at least once a month and 7% have it every day. Gastroenterologists are finding that up to one half of these patients do not get relief from proton pump inhibitors or PPIs. These PPIs are the most widely prescribed drugs for heartburn with 113 prescriptions written each year. Gastroenterologists are also finding many of those not getting relief from the drugs also show no signs of acid erosion in their esophagus. So in their infinite wisdom they have invented a new disease "non-erosive acid disease or NERD. Because once again they are completely wrong about what causes this disorder.
