HEALING HEARTBURN NATURALLY HOME
HEALING HEARTBURN NATURALLY HOME: A Guide to Managing Acid Reflux and Restoring Gut Health Paperback Excellent book has helped many of my patients with reflux.
The book of HEALING HEARTBURN NATURALLY HOME was pretty easy to understand. She clearly explains how heartburn, PPIs, and her method of tapering clearly off in detail. The only downside was that I had to figure out what was best for me to take as she has a lot of options.
I’d love for that to have been a little clearer. She does break it down, though, into botanicals, enzymes, melatonin, and the additional vitamins to take in preparation and why. She doesn’t offer a “magic pill” but includes a common sense strategy that also includes lifestyle changes. She stresses the importance of talking to your doctor before attempting these strategies.
A year or so ago, I tried to quit omeprazole “cold turkey” and the hyper rebound effect was similar to swallowing broken glass (hyperbole intended and felt). So I was leery of trying this but felt that I had to try something. She goes into detail on how to prepare your body to taper off of PPIs in a way that will not produce the “swallowing broken glass” and Dante’s inferno effect. So this strategy has three stages: preparation, tapering, and maintenance, which take about 3 months all of this in HEALING HEARTBURN NATURALLY HOME.
As a physician, I have been increasingly concerned by the ever-growing number of patients that come into the office with heartburn and leave with a prescription for a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). Many people end up taking these medications for years, and most are taking them unnecessarily.
