Problem solved – had gastric reflux

This boy, was 4 years old and was very grumpy and irritable, cranky, not eating well, and poor sleep. Mum writes:

“Dr Dr Ford
I am delighted to let you know, that we have a transformed boy in our home!  Our boy positively responded to the Losec within 3-4 days, beginning to happily eat again.

His behaviour and temperament continue to improve each day.  He is no longer sleeping fitfully, he wakes (usually) happy.  

Thank you for your wonderful work.” 


Yes, I was pleased to help.
GORD (Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease) can present in a lot of different ways:

  • Poor eating
  • Grumpy and irritable
  • Poor sleeping – waking crying
  • Hoarse voice. 

If your child is “out of sorts” then think about reflux disease.
We can fully assess your child at the The Childrens Clinic | Allergy Centre, Christchurch.
