Put out that fire in your chest for good
Hi John
For those of you who are, well, “seasoned” like I am, you probably remember the Speedy Alka-Seltzer commercials on TV.
Speedy was a cute little guy whose body was one Alka-Seltzer tablet, and he wore another as a hat.  And he would sing the jingle, “Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh what a relief it is” when describing how Alka-Seltzer could relieve your bout of heartburn fast.
In later years, the commercials featured a wide-eyed guy who had just eaten a HUGE meal desperately lamenting, "I can't believe I ate the who-o-o-o-o-ole thing" and reaching for relief with Alka-Seltzer.
The point is, way back when, heartburn used to be an occasional thing you’d get when you ate too much or had an unusually rich meal.
Now?  People get it several times a week or daily, and it’s even got a fancy title.
Acid reflux disease.
And you know what that means.
Daily symptoms means daily drugging.  To the tune of nearly $6 billion in Nexium sales alone in 2013. 
But the most maddening thing about this is: Acid reflux is not a true disease and it’s completely preventable!
And even if you do overindulge and create a bout of heartburn, there are a lot safer answers besides dangerous drugs to get relief!
Let’s take a look at the dangers of acid reflux drugs, talk about what acid reflux really is, how to prevent it, and how to put out the fire of an occasional bout of heartburn.
“Relief” at a price
The ads for acid reducers like Nexium promise relief from heartburn and reflux--all you need to do is take one little pill a day.
Most people DO feel some relief when they first start using them and they're thrilled, thinking that they've found the magic answer.
But alas, my friend, eventually the magic stops.
Because while reducing or neutralizing stomach acid might initially seem to put out the flames in your chest, at the same time it's opening up a Pandora's Box full of other issues that can make you feel WORSE--not better--and open you up to other health problems.
Here’s what I mean--reducing or crippling the acid in your stomach can lead to these major problems:
1- Demolished digestion
Your body must have stomach acid to properly break down foods, most namely proteins.  So when you eat protein, your stomach naturally secretes acid like it’s supposed to.
But then the acid gets shut down or weakened by the "magical drug."
Your stomach senses something's wrong and repeatedly tries to secrete more acid to get digestion going again...but the "wonder pill" keeps shutting it down. 
This process can go on for HOURS and result in a pool of acid sloshing around in your stomach that can come rising up your throat—precisely what you were hoping to prevent!
Plus when your digestion is ruined, you can get trouble further down the road too--namely, gas, bloating, constipation and diarrhea
Those symptoms are all listed as side effects on most acid medication boxes and now you know why that is.
2- Dangerous deficiency
The Vitamin B12 in your foods is bound to little proteins that must be "shaved off" before the B12 can be absorbed in your GI tract.
So when your stomach acid is stopped by acid reducers, B12 cannot be "released" from the protein like it needs to be in order for your body to absorb it!
Over time this can result in Vitamin B12 deficiency, which can lead to a whole host of other health issues including memory problems, depression, low energy and a weak immune system.
3- Disabled defenses
One of the most vital functions of stomach acid is to destroy dangerous toxins or pathogens (like salmonella and E. coli) you might ingest with your food. 
Without the protection of properly working stomach acid, you are basically defenseless against many dangerous microbes in your food. 
Make sure you have a clear path between you and the bathroom!
4- Bacterial bedlam
As a consequence of poor digestion and the waste buildup that typically results from it, your intestinal flora balance can be thrown completely out of whack.
Not only does this compromise your immune system and make you more susceptible to every virus and bug around, but it messes up your digestion even MORE because the friendly bacteria in your gut help to digest certain starches and fibers.
Now let’s look at the REAL story
Now that you know the truth about acid reflux drugs, let’s take a look at what acid reflux really is, and most importantly, how to prevent it!
Acid reflux is NOT a true disease—it’s simply your body being unable to effectively break down and completely digest what you’ve put in it.
And there are three primary reasons that this happens:
Acid reflux cause #1: Food
It never ceases to amaze me how people load up on garbage foods and meals that are next-to-impossible to digest, day in and day out, then wonder why they have a 4-alarm fire in their chest every night.
Really?!  That's like saying you're surprised that your thumb is throbbing after you just slammed it with a hammer.
It's time to face facts, all you acid reflux sufferers.  YOUR DIET is far and away THE MAIN CAUSE of your misery. 
Accept it, stop making excuses and do something about it!
Like changing your diet to include more nutritious REAL foods and easier to digest meals.
When you eat foods that are nourishing to your body and meals that are easier for your system to break down, your body says thank you and a whole new world can open up for you: 
  • Imagine--easing the burping, belching or acid in your throat (or mouth!). 
  • Imagine--less gas, bloating, flatulence or BM problems.
  • Imagine--possibly reducing or eliminating your need for acid medications to begin with.
This can become a reality for you when you follow the Great Taste No Pain program. 
The GTNP manuals will show you step by step exactly what to do. They'll spell out what foods are naturally low acid and which ones digest better together in meals, as well as teach you why eating this way works so well for everyone--including YOU
Nice and easy.
And it's delicious too--I didn't skimp on the "Great Taste" part!  Just wait until you try my spaghetti sauce, soups, shrimp scampi and more!
Note: if you have gluten challenges, Great Taste No Gluten is for you instead:
Acid reflux cause #2: Enzymes
If you've eaten a typical hard to digest diet for quite some time, chances are excellent that you have expended WAAYY more digestive enzymes than Nature intended you to.
As a result, your body's ability to produce adequate enzymes may be greatly reduced...and this can be a major contributing factor to poor digestion and acid reflux!
Plus as we age, our bodies' ability to produce enzymes naturally decreases.
If you suspect low enzymes are a concern for you, or have out and out been told you're low in stomach acid, then Digestizol Max is your ticket for getting the help you need.
Digestizol Max's 14 plant-derived enzymes and 5 herbal soothers can help give your body a boost to keep your digestion nice and smooth -- and help make acid reflux, GERD and heartburn a thing of the past for you.
Acid reflux cause #3: Stress
Stress is also a common cause of ruined digestion and acid reflux.
You see, digestion is a parasympathetic process, meaning your body must be in a relaxed, non-stressed state for it to be accomplished efficiently. 
Eating in a relaxed state also encourages you to eat slower, which means that your body can recognize satiety before you overeat (and bring on a bout of heartburn).
But if you instead eat when your sympathetic nervous system is in gear (such as when you're working, driving, emotionally upset, stressed, rushing, etc.) that can have a devastating impact on your digestion and lead to reflux.
So slow down and relax!  Avoid eating in a stressed state.  Make time for meals and don't eat on the run. 
And if stress is an ongoing issue for you, it's time to take a look at ways to reduce the stress in your life.  There are many helpful suggestions, programs and exercise options out there.
But what if I’m naughty every once in a while?
We’re all human…and that means that every now and then, we might be naughty and overindulge a little too much.
And end up with heartburn as a result!
But there are safe, natural answers for occasional heartburn too—here are some you can try:
1) Fresh ginger
Fresh ginger root has been used since ancient times as a natural anti-inflammatory and a treatment for digestive conditions.
It can easily be peeled, sliced, diced or grated. You can stir it into barbecue sauces, steep it in a cup of tea, use it in a stir-fry, add some to smoothies or enjoy it thinly shaved with sushi.
2) Licorice
Licorice root is soothing to the mucous membranes of the GI tract and can promote healing. 
However, the glycyrrhizic acid in licorice root can raise your blood pressure and lower potassium levels if you eat too much, so look for deglycerrhized licorice (DGL licorice) supplements in health food stores.
3) Slippery elm bark
Slippery elm bark is another herb which soothes mucous membranes and has been used as a remedy for stomach problems for centuries by European and Native American cultures.
You can brew a tea with slippery elm bark or purchase slippery elm lozenges at health food stores.
4) Aloe vera
Aloe vera juice is another natural anti-inflammatory that can help soothe inflammation in the stomach or esophagus.
Aloe vera is available at many health food stores and retail merchants.
5) Apple cider vinegar
Sometime heartburn can result from too little stomach acid.
In those cases, you can easily improve the acid content of your stomach by taking one tablespoon of raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar in a large glass of water.
Do all you can to eliminate the underlying causes of acid reflux (as well as take safer, natural measures to combat occasional heartburn) and I’m sure it won’t be long before you’re feeling tremendous relief like Paul and his friends (down below).
To your health,
Sherry Brescia

Dear Sherry, 
I, too, suffered with acid reflux for about eight months.
I saw four doctors each prescribing a different medicine.  I would cough so hard sometimes I thought I would lose my breath.  I finally decided the medicine was going to kill me or the cough would. 
Finally I found your amazing website and by following the plan just as you said I have lost 18 pounds and three sizes in my clothes in only 3 weeks! 
My reflux is completely gone and I have more energy than ever.  Thanks for this amazing program.
I now have quite a few of my friends on this regimen since they have seen my results. 
Thanks, again.
