Acid Reflux and what to do about it, with Specialist SLT Tor Spence
Play • 30 min

She's back! Specialist Speech & Language Therapist Tor Spence returns with in-depth advice on the bane of a singer's life - ACID REFLUX. 

  • What acid reflux is and what it does
  • Two types of acid reflux and why treatment for one might not work for the other
  • Nocturnal coughing, upper and lower sphincters and soluble fibre
  • We talk about LPR, GERD, PPIs and pepsins, and how effective Gaviscon (and other alginates) are

And if that wasn't enough, we're talking noses.
Nasal breathing and its benefits, why Tor recommends it, and why Jeremy has reservations

Dr Jamie Koufman's book Dropping Acid: The Reflux Diet, Cookbook and Cure is here
