I've been taking meds for 10 yrs. For acid reflux. Will using a colon cleanse help with weight loss in the belly area?

In brief: Not sure associated?

Acid reflux medications do not cause weight loss nor weight gain.
I assume you are alluding to possibly to pH balance. A colon cleanse (not with enema) may help you reset your balance towards a low basic ph. This will help place you in a fat burning mode. "belly fat" especially visceral fat is difficult to burn.
