Acid Reflux Knowledge - The Truth Behind Your Heartburn

Hello fellow heartburn sufferer and welcome to my blog.

I wish to congratulate you for making this investment in yourself. Educating yourself about your acid reflux condition is the first and most important step in curing this painful, annoying and relatively dangerous chronic condition and taking responsibility over your health and well-being.

Although acid reflux (GERD) is in fact a very common condition, it is little discussed. Most people regard heartburn as an ‘on the surface’ problem that should be treated with pills and antacids whereas few are aware of its potentially risky complications.

Acid reflux is first and foremost a complex internal problem that manifests itself in a variety of symptoms. Among the most common are: heartburn, chest pain, chronic sore throat, burning sensation and constant burping. Like most chronic conditions, there is never one cause for this problem and thus acid reflux cannot be permanently eliminated using medications or PPIs that work superficially and do not tackle the main root factors that trigger the formation of heartburn in the first place.

The problem is that The majority of heartburn sufferers choose to leave it in the hands of others: Doctors, pharmacists, drug and over the counter industries. They willingly choose NOT to take responsibility for their acid reflux condition, for their health and for their own body.

If you suffer from acid reflux then you must have experienced the confusion stemmed from conflicting advice and from information overload. Honest information about heartburn or any other type or symptom of acid reflux is harder to come by than ever before, and nearly everyone has been misled at one time or another. I know I have. I wasted literally thousands of dollars on heartburn treatment programs that didn’t “work out” and anti-reflux products that didn’t do anything.

Furthermore, to successfully navigate through today’s jungle of misleading, dishonest and conflicting information, you're going to have to become a very shrewd and discriminating consumer. I’d like to help you do that, and that’s why I created this blog.

In this blog, I will discuss the alternative, cheap, safe, natural and holistic health practices and methods necessary to permanently eliminate the symptoms of this disease and cure the root internal cause of acid reflux regardless of its type, location, or level of severity.

In this blog you will find valuable information about the cause and symptoms of acid reflux, how to self-test and diagnose your acid reflux condition, overview of the common types of acid reflux and their typical complications as well as natural heartburn remedies, dietary principals needed to maintain an acid reflux free environment and complimentary treatments that will help you battle against the negative effects of your acid reflux condition.

By educating yourself about the steps you need to take in order to deal with your acid reflux condition and help your body heal itself and control this esophageal problem from the root you can say goodbye to the pain, annoyance and frustration associated with this condition and feel more in control. Additionally, as a side benefits you’ll feel more energized, healthier and vibrant. You will enjoy improved digestion, enhanced vision, and healthier hair, skin and nails.

Knowledge is power. Embrace it. Share it and you will be acid reflux free.
