The relationship between reflux and bile function

The link between reflux and bad bile function and digestion

Intestinal diseases: relation between IBS, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, SIBO and bile

What is reflux?

"Reflux is the backflow of stomach contents through the oesophagus. Reflux disease is when the reflux of stomach contents through the oesophagus leads to complaints that impair quality of life. So the disturbing symptoms occur relatively regularly. These symptoms are usually heartburn, acid reflux, acid belching, burning sensation in the chest. A complication of reflux can be acid reflux in the oesophagus, which can lead to oesophagitis, Barrett's oesophagus or oesophageal cancer."

What are the causes of reflux?

Problems due to bad digestion

  • Contaminated small bowel syndrome (SIBO): The gases produced by the bacteria in the small intestine increase the internal pressure in the stomach, which opens the oesophageal sphincter and forces the acidic contents of the stomach into the oesophagus.
  • Dysbiosis and IBS: The bloating typical of these diseases increases the abdominal pressure, which forces the acidic contents of the stomach into the oesophagus.
  • Missing bile quantity (post-biliary surgery or gallstones): If there is a problem with the breakdown of fats or if the bile's disinfectant role does not work properly, SIBO or dysbiosis can develop.

Other reasons

'If the closing ring between the oesophagus and the stomach - also known as the cardia - opens beyond swallowing or burping, it allows acidic contents to enter the oesophagus. This can be influenced by many things: overeating after excessive stomach distension, burping, activities and conditions that compress the abdomen (bending, lifting, abdominal exercises, obesity), but it can also be reduced by many foods that people know as causing 'heartburn'. These include onions, fatty foods, peppermint, citrus fruits, chocolate, sweets, alcohol, tea, coffee, tomato-based foods. Smoking and certain medicines also relax the cardia.'

How can you prevent the onset of bile reflux and help to eliminate it?

Reflux (also known as GERD) can be treated with lifestyle changes and digestive adjustments.

Lifestyle:

  • Sleep position:
    • Sleep on your left side: research shows that sleeping on your left side can reduce acid reflux back into the oesophagus by up to 71%.
    • Raise the head of the bed.
  • Nutritional adjustments:
    • Avoiding late dinners: eating heavy meals close to bedtime can make reflux symptoms worse.
    • Avoid foods that provoke reflux.
    • Follow a low-carbohydrate diet: reducing your intake of "hard-to-digest" carbohydrates can help. For example, avoid unripe bananas, corn and potatoes.
  • Achieving a healthy weight
  • Lifestyle habits:
    • Limiting alcohol and coffee consumption
    • Avoid smoking

Repairing digestion

  • Support of the cycle of bile acids with consuming bile acids.
  • Improving digestion by taking digestive enzymes.

"I had epic reflux, with vomiting almost every day. I have been taking GALLMET-Mix for 1 month. All my symptoms disappeared almost immediately. I can eat anything, no problem."

It occurs often after gallstones, biliary surgery and stressful lifestyles!

Dr. István Tihanyi and László Béky talk about reflux (with subtitles, about 1 minute, Echo TV - Vitality)

"By replacing bile acids, bile secretion becomes regular and it also triggers the small intestine to function, eliminating the irritation and blockage that allows food to move upwards and cause reflux-like symptoms." The effect of bile acids depends on the health condition and individual sensitivity.
Dr. István Tihanyi
Reflux caused by poor lifestyle and bile flow

New GALLMET-Extra * 60 capsules of bile acids, enzymes and herbs

Drugs taken for reflux (e.g. antacids and proton pump inhibitors) can interfere with the activity of digestive enzymes and reduce the antiseptic effect of stomach acid. In bile deficiency, the bile's disinfectant function and the digestion of fats are impaired. In both cases, poor breakdown of food and altered intestinal bacterial content and composition can cause unpleasant abdominal discomfort and heartburn due to increased abdominal pressure. These changes can contribute to the development of SIBO, IBS and dysbiosis, and in such cases it is recommended to replace the missing bile acids and enzymes, eliminating the underlying cause of reflux. In addition to bile acids and digestive herbal extracts, GALLMET-Extra contains papain, bromelain, lipase and amylase to help with proper protein, fat and carbohydrate digestion.
