LPR Solution Blueprint - Basic
Causes, Diagnosis & Treatment of LPR
If you've made it till here, you have already beaten the most critical obstacle: You know about LPR.
Most people with LPR symptoms do not even get that far. Why? Because many doctors do not know how to recognize the signs of silent reflux. And even if they do, treating it is still much more challenging. Every silent reflux patient is different regarding causes and therefore treatment. That is why treating LPR patients is time intensive. But time is exactly the resource that physicians in our health system do not have. There are more and more sick people and too few doctors to treat them. The system is collapsing.
That is why I understand if you might feel helpless and alone. LPR sufferers are often left for themselves without getting the treatment they need.
It is not like there are no working treatments for LPR. But it takes a long time until information flows from medical research and pioneering experts into doctor's offices - sometimes decades.
On top of that the internet is full of misleading information. Yes, some is correct and helpful. But even more is outdated, inaccurate, or even harmful.
Many websites just copy texts from somewhere else and rewrite it a bit without checking the facts. Why? Because it is easy and fast. The faster you create more text the more money you can make from advertising on your site. Even big, famous websites in the health sector produce content like that. For the layman, it is tough to decide which advice is legitimate and which is not.
The same goes for doctors. Medicine is like every other profession. Some people are fantastic at their job while others are really bad. You have to decide which ones know about their stuff and which ones don't. But how do you do that if you are not an expert yourself?
What is missing is a neutral gatekeeper amongst state of the art research, top experts, and patients. Someone who is able to decide who is legit and who is not. Someone who transforms the newest research into actionable advice which can relieve your symptoms.
