Addressing GERD Naturally
Natural heartburn remedy through Nutrition
This is a system that promises no side effects, no need for antacids and no need for prescription drugs.
Note that, if you are already on prescription drugs
and under a doctor's care for acid reflux or GERD, you should check with your doctor before discontinuing any prescribed medication.
This is quite a large site, with a LOT of testimonials from people who have tried Jeff's system and found relief so please be patient as you read all of it.
One interesting sentence that caught my eye was this one:
"WARNING: Long Term Use Of Prescription Drugs and Antacids Will Worsen Your Acid Reflux Condition and
May Lead To Dangerous Complications"
Jeff talks about the most commonly prescribed prescription drugs for GERD, acid reflux and heartburn and how the health stress they can put on the body may not be
worth the risk of taking them longterm for symptom relief.
For example, Jeff writes:
"The vast majority of prescription drugs, not just those aimed at treating heartburn, can severely damage your delicate natural internal balance, interfere with liver function, build up toxins in your body, slow down your metabolism and lead to serious side effects."
He also notes that PPI drugs have recently been linked to bone loss by medical scientists from Britain.
Drugs prescribed for acid reflux and GERD, such as Nexium, Prevacid or Prilosec are only supposed to be taken shortterm, usually 8 weeks or less. This is because
these drugs taken longer than that, may actually stimulate your stomach to produce extra amounts of acid due to the hormone Gastrin.
Gastrin is made by the body when drugs like Nexium, Prilosec or Prevacid are taken and having too much gastrin in the system
may be a factor in the development of certain kinds of cancer, including esophageal and pancreatic cancer.
