Tips for maintaining good throat and bronchial health
The connection between cough and reflux has been unknown for many years, but nowadays it is known that they are one and the same pathology which is known under the name of respiratory reflux. Until now it has been a hidden condition, which means that it can occur without the need for other known symptoms, which may be more related to the effects that have generally been associated with reflux, regurgitation and even heartburn.
In the book “El misterio de la tos y el reflujo: La buena salud de garganta y bronquios”, Dr. Pacheco Galván explains how important it is to control respiratory reflux on a daily basis, especially when treatment is urgently required. Gastric juices ascend, sometimes without a burning sensation, until they reach the upper respiratory tract such as the bronchial tubes, throat and nose, which can become inflamed and even irritated.
In his publication, Dr. Pacheco Galván makes a series of recommendations regarding some simple changes in the daily routine, such as modifications in the diet in order to avoid “leaks” due to the respiratory reflux disease or to opt for a healthier lifestyle.
