Episode 23:12 Why You Should Stop Taking Drugs For Reflux And Heartburn… And What To Do Instead

Every day millions of Americans take a PPI drug - such as Prilosec, Prevacid, Zegerid or Nexium - to help them deal with acid reflux (GERD), heartburn, chest pain and/or difficulty swallowing.

Unfortunately many of these individuals ignore the warning associated with these drugs... the warning informing them that they are not intended to be taken for more than two weeks at a time..

As a result, they are putting themselves at risk for some serious side-effects such as kidney disease, broken bones and dementia.

This has to stop… but how?

That is, what can a person do to avoid taking these drugs?

More importantly, what can a person do NATURALLY to help their digestive system improve to the point that they don’t need a PPI drug?

On this episode we lay out an exact plan.

Specifically, we share four tactics anyone can employ to improve their digestion.

In addition, we do something very few doctors will do:

We discuss HOW a person develops acid reflux (GERD) and heartburn so they can better understand how to correct it.

We also provide three very important questions a person should ask their doctor BEFORE ever taking a PPI drug.

Please give this episode a good listen as you won’t hear this information anywhere else.
