Acid Reflux Is Not Always Due To Too Much Acid!

Ironically, there’s a twist to this condition of gastroesophageal reflux disease, which medicine – generally - hasn’t yet picked up on. Hence, this is resulting in most people being wrongly treated for their heartburn, by being prescribed medications that inevitably cause an even greater list of gastric, and other systemic symptoms.

Medicine’s approach is to give you a quick-fix, ‘magic bullet’ drug, such as one of the many proton pump inhibitors. However, these usually don’t cure the situation, and only suppress symptoms. Stop the drug, and the symptoms usually come back.

Here, via the video clip, backed up by a free, very detailed PDF article, you can explore the many self-empowering ways in which you can manage your gastric reflux symptoms via a range of safe, effective and more natural approaches.
