Hello, I’m Dr. David Gray, the founder of WipeoutReflux.com,
Embarking on my journey into the world of acid reflux and Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR), also known as silent reflux, I encountered significant challenges, grappling with a range of symptoms. My quest for effective healthcare assistance proved daunting, as countless doctor visits and numerous tests failed to provide a conclusive diagnosis.
My first initial encounters with the medical community involved misdiagnoses and treatments that didn’t address the core issue of LPR. Eventually, a perceptive doctor identified the connection to acid reflux, prescribing common anti-acid tablets, also known as Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs). However, I later discovered that PPIs, while effective for Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD), did not provide the relief I needed for LPR.
Motivated by the scarcity of quality information and guidance on LPR, I established this blog to share insights gained from my journey. Most healthcare professionals lack the specialized knowledge required to effectively treat LPR, leading to misguided advice and treatment.
With over 8 years of dedicated research into LPR and silent reflux, I now hold a doctorate in the field. Throughout the content on my site, I ensure to reference reputable studies supporting medical claims and draw from reliable, medically proven guidance provided by experts in the field. This blog is my commitment to assisting others in navigating the complexities of acid reflux and LPR and offering effective solutions based on solid medical knowledge.
