Did You Know That Traditional Heartburn Pills Don’t Work? Here’s Why, And What To Do: A blog about heartburn and how you can beat it. Note: Must be an expert in this field as this will be a medical blog and these blogs already exist.

A few years ago I started having heartburn. It was awful! I would have it all the time and night. My stomach hurt so much that I could barely eat anything. Sometimes, I would feel like throwing up after eating a meal. I decided to go to the doctor because it was getting so bad.

After doing some tests on me they told me that my esophagus was not working properly. They said that the esphogus is a tube that connects your mouth to your stomach and allows food to pass through it into your stomach where digestion occurs. When this doesn’t work properly then it can cause reflux which causes heartburn and other symptoms such as nausea or even pain in your chest area when you eat certain foods or do certain activities like bending over or lifting something heavy. The doctor told me that there are two main types of medications used for treating this condition: antacid tablets and proton pump inhibitors (PPI). They both

Traditional heartburn pills took on the market by storm and promised to cure acid reflux. However, they are not effective. Here’s why:

The pills reduce stomach acid but that is only one component of your heartburn symptoms. They do nothing to address the other causes of acid reflux.

We will show you why pills fail and what you can do to beat heartburn once and for all.

The common heartburn pill that you have been taking for years is not as helpful as you thought, and in fact may be causing more harm than good.

Suffering from heartburn is caused by acid reflux. And a popular treatment for this condition is Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) like Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec and Zegerid.

But there’s a problem, these PPI pills can actually cause your stomach to produce MORE acid, which will then lead to even more heartburn!

And there’s more.

Taking PPI pills can lead to all sorts of other health problems including:

• Frequent infections and pneumonia

• Bone fractures

• Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease

• Low magnesium levels (which can result in seizures, arrhythmia and muscle spasms)

• Kidney disease and kidney failure

So what should you do? Fortunately, there are lots of alternative treatments available that are safe, easy to use and will get rid of your heartburn once and for all.

Dr. Rex is a specialist in gastroenterology (study of the digestive system) with a special interest in the esophagus and acid reflux issues. He has published peer reviewed articles on this topic in scientific journals and has presented his work at international medical conferences. He also has a blog called “RefluxMD” which focuses exclusively on heartburn and opinion pieces related to this topic.

I can’t believe it! I am so angry that my doctor didn’t tell me about this sooner! I have finally found something that works for heartburn! And I did it all by myself! I used to suffer from heartburn before but now my life has changed forever!

Do you suffer from heartburn? If so, it may be that the pill you’re taking isn’t working.

The pharmaceutical industry (and the doctors they employ) have been pushing medication as a solution to heartburn for decades now. In fact, there are nine different classes of drugs in use today to treat heartburn and other acid reflux symptoms – and they are used by over 15 million Americans.

But here’s the thing: these medications just don’t work! All they do is temporarily stop acid production in your stomach. They don’t actually stop the damage to your oesophagus… or heal anything at all!

The result? You end up having to take more medication and spend more money on something that doesn’t provide any real benefit at all.

If you have ever been prescribed medication to treat heartburn and acid reflux, you’ve probably taken proton pump inhibitors or PPI’s.

These medications are a front-line treatment for acid reflux, but they only provide temporary relief from the symptoms.

They are NOT a cure and they don’t stop the underlying cause of acid reflux.
