Living Life Without Prilosec and Other Acid Blockers!
If you are having an ongoing battle with heartburn, acid reflux or GERD (not totally sure of the difference) like I was over the last few years, and wound up taking more Prilosec, Nexium, Prevacid, etc. (acid blockers) than you care to, tune in! Acid blockers are NOT A CURE, they are just a short-term solution (contrary to what doctors may have led you to believe). Tune in to hear what I am hoping is a long-term solution that allows me to eat what I want without the problems of excess stomach acid. Who knows, it just might help you as well. Check with your doctor first though. :-) One last thing... I forgot to mention that a doctor I saw on the Dr. Oz show said that she recommends 2 mg of melatonin one hour before bedtime for her patients that suffer from acid reflux symptoms. Supposedly, this helps wean them from acid blocking drugs. According to Dr. Oz it will also help you sleep more soundly, as well as help with GERD symptoms WITHOUT stopping stomach acid production. Check out his website for more details, and TALK TO YOUR DOCTOR before trying it. Hope it helps! www,eformationqueen.com https://www.facebook.com/eFormationQueen

Relief for GERD, Acid Reflux and/or Chronic Heartburn?
Do you have chronic GERD or heartburn symptoms? Well you are not by yourself! There are millions of us, me included, turning to over-the-counter drugs that treat the symptoms, but they may cause long-term and dangerous consequences. As a result, I have been reading a book that claims to provide natural alternatives, and I started taking a natural product that claims to provide relief for six months and does not stop the production of stomach acid. Do you want to know more? Tune in to find out the name of the book and the product, as well as a product review based on my experience with it. In the meantime, I hope it helps, and good luck!
