“Just because you have acid reflux, or heartburn, does not always mean you have high stomach acid”, says Karen Brennan, MSW, CNC, board-certified in holistic nutrition and owner of TruFoods Nutrition Services, LLC.

Many people confuse high stomach acid with low stomach acid, as both can have similar symptoms such as heartburn, bloating, belching, wind after meals.
