You can relieve acid reflux, heartburn and other gastric distress

Martie WhittekinMillions of Americans suffer with heartburn, acid reflux and other gastric ailments. Acid blocking drugs and the best selling drugstore remedies. The problem is that these drugs do not solve the problem. They provide relief from the symptoms but at a cost that includes side effects and nutrient deficiencies. Our bodies need stomach acid. Stomach acid provides very specific benefits and a deficiency of stomach acid contributes to other problems.

We need stomach acid to break down proteins. We need stomach acid to kill pathogens that enter through our mouths. We need stomach acid to digest certain minerals. Acid blocking drugs interfere with all of of these nutritional needs. In this interview and in her book, Martie examines the underlying causes of acid reflux. She discusses how acid blocking drugs work and how they can be damaging to long-term health. She also discusses the most important nutritional products for both short-term and long-term relief.
