Can Vaccines Make Reflux Worse?

I'm afraid that this isn’t something that your doctor will ever tell you, yet there are many, many babies out there who’s parents will tell you that either they didn’t have reflux until their jabs or that their baby’s reflux got markedly worse after jabs.

Some babies with reflux will get worse with vaccinations and others won’t be affected at all.

The Bulls1ht Series - Busting The Myths of Reflux

Maybe its being Irish, maybe its the complete frustration I feel when another mum replays her last conversation with the doctor about her baby's reflux. 

It's time to stop lying to ourselves.

It's time to stop believing that everything a doctor says is true because they are a doctor.

Sorry, this is not the case, and you probably know this already in your heart but are scared to admit it...

Baby Reflux, An Introduction to

Reflux

A disease that no parent wants to learn about. A condition that no baby needs to suffer through.

We are told “reflux is normal”.

It is not.

It is common.

It is not normal.

It affects about 40% of babies in Ireland and the UK. 50% in the USA.

Contrary to the medical definition, Gastro Oesophageal Reflux Disease, (GORD) is a symptom and not a disease. Reflux has no underlying...

Postnatal Depression Saved My Life

If I was to write to myself 10-years ago, I honestly don’t know what I would say.

In terms of the facts of life that would unfold, it would go along the lines:  

“You’re going to have a baby, hate being mum, feel a complete failure at it, develop postnatal depression that lasts for 3 years.

But it’s okay, you’re going to be grand...eventually.

Actually,...

Baby Is Gaining Weight So Doesn't Have Reflux

It really is time to call time on so many myths about reflux, colic and food allergies in babies.

I believe that these myths are more doing far more harm than good. They let the medics off the hook for treating babies properly, they allow longer term suffering to continue and they completely ignore the knock-on effects to a mothers mental health, the emotional health of her partner and the...

H is for Histamine Sensitivity (not Intolerance)

Histamines. Something we are starting to hear more and more about in relation to reflux.

I was first confused as to why some babies with reflux were being prescribed piraton, citrizine and ketotifen. All these medications are anti-histamines of one sort or another, and I could not figure out why they were being prescribed to help babies with reflux.

When I spoke to my local friendly pharmacist,...

The Cause of Reflux

 

Isn't reflux just something that some babies have and they will grow out if it?

No. It isn't.

Have you been told that "reflux is normal"?

Well, reflux isn't normal, it's common. That's not the same as it being normal.

 


I'm here to tell you something different. Very different. The complete opposite in fact.

Reflux is not a disease (despite it's name).

Reflux is not normal,...

Reflux Symptoms

 

When we google symptoms for reflux there are so many lists that appear.

The trouble with these lists is that they do not make the differentiation that reflux itself, is a symptom.

When we look for the cause of the reflux, that we can address this specifically, and resolve baby's pain. Additionally, when we have read the symptoms properly, taking the action that addresses the underlying...

Reflux: The Meds Don't Work...

With 60% *of babies diagnosed with reflux, silent reflux, colic, CMPA and various other food allergies or intolerances, still having symptoms with the medications, I believe there has to be a better question to result in better outcomes for these babies and their families.

Because reflux does not just impact baby, it has a massive impact on the whole family....
