Burning Ears and Infections In Psoriatics Are Caused by Leaking Stomach Acid

That’s right all those common health issues that go along with psoriasis like burning ears, recurrent sinus infections and mostly strep throat infections are often caused by stomach acid leaking from the stomach to the upper respiratory tract.

Stomach lining can handle the stomach acid but if the acid leaks into the esophagus, throat and Eustachian tube the irritation or disease may develop.

Think about the stomach acid as the dishwashing soap that dries the skin.

If the skin on the hand is not protected then we usually develop various rashes which are usually fungal in origin.

Soaps dissolve the oily layer on the skin and leave our skin vulnerable to pathogens. We won’t damage the skin by using the soap a few times a day but those who work with soaps or detergents all day long without the gloves will develop some rash eventually. It is always just the question how fast the skin can regenerate to be able to fight off the fungal or bacterial attack.

The same goes with stomach acid; if it gets outside the stomach – to esophagus, Eustachian tube; reach the tonsils or sinuses – it damages the protective layer of those organs and leaves them vulnerable to pathogens.

Another fact is that bacteria are much more vulnerable to pH changes than the fungi do. So if the pH on the surface of tonsils or in the sinuses is permanently changing it will greatly suppress the symbiotic bacteria colonies so fungi will spread more easily.[1]

Laryngopharyngeal reflux (Silent reflux)

In case of GERD/heartburn (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) the problem is that lower esophageal sphincter does not tighten sufficiently so the stomach acid can leak into the esophagus. Usually the only symptom of this is heartburn.

However, in case of Laryngopharyngeal reflux both of the esophageal sphincters (upper and lower) are not tighten enough so the acid can travel all the way up to the upper respiratory tract.

      I won’t give you any medical advice because I am not a doctor.

      But if I had acid reflux I would:
      – eat smaller portions of meals and chew the food properly.
      – did not combine starches with protein (inappropriate food combinations are EXTREMELY bad for digestive tract). Eating meat with rice or potatoes is very bad for digestion. Neither protein (meat) nor starch (rice or potatoes) will be properly digested. If you combine protein with starches then food sits in the stomach for a long time and ferments (especially when there is low stomach acid production).
      – work on supporting the bile flow especially if I had constipation which is often accompanied by acid reflux.

      Then if that wasn’t enough I would try Betaine HCL. digestive enzymes and Ox bile or Artichoke Leaf extract supplement.

      3 capsules of Betaine HCL per meal should be enough – https://www.psoriasisdietplan.com/2015/06/betaine-hcl-works-ph-meter-photo-proof/
