Heartburn & Reflux Be Gone
By Marge Pickering-Picone
January 30, 2015.
Over 32 years ago when I started in the field of Vitamins & Minerals, I went down many paths to rid myself of symptoms that were chronic and annoying. Heartburn and reflux were two of them. I typically would use antacids for temporary relief and also resorted to a more potent option- a prescription of called “Librax”. I never asked what it did or if there were any side effects. I just wanted relief. Today, if I had read the side effects, I never would have even tried it. When the antacids and Librax didn’t help, I was willing to try anything that anyone offered. It may be hard to believe, but I turned toward the natural direction of supplements with great skepticism. I just wanted the heartburn and reflux to be gone and I was surprised at actually how much more I received. With an open mind, here were some of the changes I made and how it went.
I made an effort to get rid of starches and sugars from my diet. I learned the reason I craved them was because carbohydrates turn to glucose and offer help with fatigue. Of course, it does not last and you keep eating them until you become resistant and add weight to your body.
Vinegar was another culprit of my reflux. I never noticed it until I gave up the starchy foods and added more salads into my daily regimen. When I finally removed the vinegar dressing and lessened my carbohydrate intake, my heartburn and reflux reduced tremendously. It wasn’t gone yet, so I pursued the next step.
I was introduced and educated on the use of MRT (Muscle Resistance Testing) by Don LePore and his “Ultimate Healing System”, on what types of supplements could possibly address my symptoms. I know that heartburn and reflux were the problems I was originally trying to solve but Don’s methods also acknowledged my fatigue, headaches, stress, nerves, sleep and chronic bouts of bronchitis & pneumonia. Suddenly, my stomach issues became very low on the list. Repairing my other levels is where it all began.
Today we have newer supplements like “Reflux Away”, “Esophageal Guard”, or “Adrenal Support” that works to reduce the symptoms of heartburn or reflux. The one thing that I have learned from experience is that in addition to these great products, you also need to work on eliminating foods from your diet that agitate your issue. Once you determine the foods that cause you distress, it becomes easier to replace them with foods that are healthy and provide more nutritive benefits.
Life is a learning experience. You would think we get smarter with age! We tend to make more believable excuses for our food choices. When we have pain and indigestion, we call the doctor for immediate relief. If we do not like the side effects, we stop taking the meds and continue to eat the same foods and suffer in silence or with an over the counter remedy.
Heartburn and reflux are not the problems. They are your body’s signal that you have gone too far. It is time to get healthy. If you are aware of all the side effects that prescriptions have to offer, it should make you want to run to the phone and give me a call. I was able to learn years ago that supplements and proper dietary choices could improve my quality of life. I am here to help teach you all that I have learned!
