I know this may seem like a little bit out there but could HBOT(Hyperbaric oxygen help with GERD? I mean it seems that doctors just focus on the acidity aspect of GERD and not the LES sphincter itself. could it be that the LES valve which is composed of rings of muscles be oxygen deprived therefore the nerves cells within it are not allowing the sphincter to work properly?
PPIs, antacids and what not dont affect how the LES valve functions, so why arent doctors focusing on how to repair the valve with other therapies instead of saying its an issue of acidity?
Any intake on this ?
