I was one of 60 million people that suffer from heartburn, acid reflux, or GERD (gastroesophegeal reflux disease). I was prescribed those $100 bottles of anatacid pills. Eventually I got tired of dishing out $100 per bottle and looked for another solution. Well there is a holistic treatment for acid reflux and heartburn. And by the way, those that suffer from GERD, there is a GERD natural treatment as well.
When I first had the symptoms I bought over the counter antacids. Over time my heartburn got worse. My doctor advised me that I had acid reflux and warned me of the potential for GERD if I left my condition untreated.
Over the counter antaids account for the most popular method of dealing with the discomfort of heartburn, acid reflux, and GERD.
As you know, antacids work by increasing the pH in your stomach and neutralizing the hydrochloric acid in the stomach. But, this is just a symptomatic treatment. It doesn’t slolve the problem. Extended use can do as much harm or more. You can have chronic constipation or even diarrhea.
Alginic acid is a compound usually extracted from seaweed. Combined with antacids it acts as a barrier or film to the acid, food and bile in the stomach, known as the refluxate.
Refluxate (stomach bile, food and acid) reenters the esophagus through a small normally one way valve called the sphincter muscle. If this muscle is weak or overly large, refluxate leaks back into the sensitive walls of the esophagus and causes the burning sensation of heartburn or worse acid reflux.
As you well know, antacids relieve the symptoms, but do not cure the condition. Would permanent relief, a cure, be of interest to you? I’m sure it would. You can stop taking the $100 per bottle pills. You can stop the daily intake of over the counter antacid tablets.
You can end digestive disorders, constant belching, flatulence (gas), the constant pressure in your chest. You can a have full nights sleep without pain and indigestion. You can do it holistically, a natural way.
Within as short a period as two months you can be rid of heartburn and acid reflux forever. How?
By using a holistic approach. I know some may close their eyes in disbelief. I did too, until I discovered that Holistic medicine is not some New Age fad. It is an established branch of the medical profession.
