That’s why Jeff Martin, certified nutrition specialist (CNS), medical researcher, speaker and author had put together the 5-step Heartburn No More system to share this important information. After suffering from chronic acid reflux for more than a decade and i loved this after 11 years of research, trial and error, Jeff has helped over 154,928 people worldwide to discover the key to restoring intestinal balance, eliminating heartburn by fixing the root cause and thus achieving permanent freedom from all types of acid reflux.
In the United States, approximately 1.5 billion prescriptions are filled each year. While medication can be an important part of managing disease, it can also trigger acid reflux and lead to GERD and other diseases. By taking your pills with care, you can limit your risk of drug-induced complications from obstruction in the esophagus. And, when possible, supplement or replace medications with preventative treatments that don’t have unwanted side effects (always consult with your doctor first before changing a drug regimen).
The purple pill decreases stomach acid in an effort to reduce symptoms, but do not address the actual cause of reflux, which is the malfunction of the valve that lies at the end of the esophagus (LES). The LES remains dysfunctional and the pills simply cover up the reflux which still continues. There are immediate and long-term side effects of the pills and they are expensive and inconvenient. What’s more, symptom relief is often incomplete and the suffering continues. The stomach is supposed to make acid and there are reasons for it. The pills disturb this which alters the natural digestive process.
Experts think stomach acid can trigger nerves in the chest to constrict your breathing tubes in order to keep acid from entering. Again, a simple pH test to look for acid in your esophagus may help you get to the bottom of the problem. Work with gravity. Acid production is at its height within three hours of eating, so try not to lie down during that time period. Working with gravity helps keep your stomach contents down where they belong. Some women find relief from nighttime GERD by simply elevating the head of their beds. Others find that taking a casual walk after a meal helps move digestion along.
