"It Happened to Kim Kardasian's Father" Part 2


It Happened to Robert Kardashian, don't let it happen to you!

Let’s start with the understanding that the very best person to help you is your doctor. He will ask you questions, and based on your answers, he can help you decide what you need.

What is Acid Reflux?
It is where the Acid Re-fluxes into the Esophagus.

Why does the Acid come into the Esophagus?
First we need to explain that there is a valve at the top of the stomach. When that valve malfunctions for a variety of reasons it allows acid to either leak or shoot up into the esophagus. This can be very dangerous and extremely painful for you.

Some of the causes of acid entering the esophagus are:

  1. The valve is not as tight as it should be. Some of the reasons the valve might be loose is that certain foods will relax the area, such as chocolate, alcohol, certain fats, etc.

  1. A hiatus hernia can separate the valve causing problems.

  1. Eating too much or drinking caffeinated and/or carbonated beverages can build up gas pressure against the valve, forcing acid into the esophagus.

  2. If you snore it can cause a vacuum that can suck the acid right into the esophagus, lungs, mouth, and sinuses.
  1. Being overweight puts pressure on the stomach that can also force the valve open.

Dear Kim Kardashian, family and friends. I know how agonizing it is to suffer from Acid Reflux. I can’t imagine the suffering or pain your father endured and how you and your family feel of the loss of your father. I ask that you help me help people to avoid that fate. Please contact me to discuss how we can avoid the fate for other families. The next installment of this article will be to discuss what you need to know and can do to protect yourself and family.
