I Want to Introduce You to Heartburn No More, which is a program by Jeff Martin, designed for all acid reflux sufferers. See it here www.anaturalrefluxremedy.com and decide for yourself if what follows is useful or not.
Now having been in this place myself, I can imagine only too clearly, the pain which you may be feeling if you have an acid reflux problem.
I want to assure you that I don’t take this lightly, and I would highly recommend that you check with your doctor to see if there is any underlying medical problem which needs attention — this might, for example, include Helicobacter pylori infection, hiatal hernia, or some other consequence of continuing acid reflux such as Barrett’s oesophagus.
Once you’ve eliminated all of these medical issues, what are you going to do to cure acid reflux?
The problem is that if you take medication, you’ll be on them for life, and while that may be an acceptable solution for some people, there are plenty of us who feel that taking medications over the long term is not necessarily the best strategy for continuing good health.
Indeed, Prilosec, one of the latest generation of acid inhibiting compounds known as proton pump inhibitors, has been associated with increased levels of Clostridium difficile infection, and even bone demineralization in older people.
This is not appeal to me, and it may not appeal to you either — but there is actually plenty of evidence to suggest that the side-effects of PPIs has not yet been fully elucidated, and there may be a price to pay for the fact that this is now the most prescribed category of drug in the Western world.
Furthermore, on a simple, practical, commonsense level, does it not make sense to suggest that something which is the most prescribed category of drug in the Western world is actually covering up a lifestyle and stress factor which we should be dealing with in a more fundamental way?

I mean, when all is said and done, there is plenty of evidence to suggest that acid reflux is the consequence of stress, or the consequence of our lifestyle, and that perhaps it might be a more sensible approach to address lifestyle issues.
Now I know that it’s easy to say this, but while you’re suffering extreme pain of acid eating when the mucosal lining of the stomach, you may feel more inclined to run to the pharmacy and pick up some action blockers like Zantac, or some proton pump inhibitors like Prilosec.
Of course ultimately the choice is yours, and it’s a matter of deciding which philosophy rather adopt in life — adhering to Western medical traditions, or striking out on your own, and seeking solutions to problems that in fact are actually your responsibility.
Because there is the problem: that we fail to accept responsibility for our own good health, or rather, we fail to accept responsibility for our own ill-health.
So what would this mean in practice?
At the very least, it would mean reducing stress, which can be done by adopting a meditation or relaxation program, perhaps meditating or relaxing for up to 30 minutes every day.
More practically, it would mean avoiding the source of stress, and eliminating from your life those things which you have some basic objection to, or which did not suit your personality traits and needs.
And of course there’s the problem — it’s all very well to say that, but when it’s your lifestyle, your intimate relationship, your job, or your children and family, that are causing distress, it may not seem like a very easy solution to unravel.
Yet at the end of the day, one has to ask what is best for one’s health? To whom is good health and obligation, and to whom is it an optional extra?
That’s the question I suppose that we will compromise with in life — but my philosophy is that when the body points out something as dramatically as it does in the case of acid reflux, then there is a problem which we need to deal with.
It’s a philosophy of life, which means that every individual has to be responsible for their own well-being and good health, and that they have to do take responsibility for solving problems lifestyle, attitude, and emotional distress rather than running to the doctor for a solution to be handed out by the medical establishment.
Now having said all of that, I do accept that there are times when the solution is handed out by the medical establishment and probably not a bad thing– as I mentioned above, Helicobacter pylori infection is certainly something that is implicated in the production of stomach ulcers, and Antibiotics can deal with a very effectively.
