Cure Your Heartburn Naturally
Have you ever had heartburn? If not, then you should count yourself lucky. Suffering from any type of heartburn, even a mild case, is one experience you're not likely to forget in a hurry. Not only is it uncomfortable, it can be painful, even up to the point of being debilitating.
Despite the research and studies that both medical science and independent organizations have conducted into the condition of heartburn, the question regarding what causes it for some people and not for others remains unanswered.
Heartburn is however, a recognized medical condition - or at least some types of it are. I didn't realize this until I started digging around to find out more information for myself. I wanted to discover as much as I could about what was causing me so much pain and discomfort. But more importantly, I wanted to know how to stop it! Those of you who suffer from heartburn will know exactly what I mean.
The first time heartburn struck me, I wondered what on earth could be causing my agony. It was so painful. What could I have done to cause that terrible burning feeling......? Then I remembered my mom telling me about her heartburn, and I recognized that my symptoms were similar to hers.
I'm sure I'm not the only person to have been totally unprepared for that first heartburn. After all, I hadn't eaten anything out of the ordinary, so what had triggered it? What I did know, was that after experiencing those symptoms once, I was certainly going to be prepared for the next time. On no account was I going through that pain again. What I didn't expect though was the solution that was recommended by everyone I asked. Drugs! And yet more drugs! Wasn't there anything else I could take?
I don't know if you've ever felt like me, but after I suffered my third heartburn within a month, I realized that I was beginning to let it control my life. I no longer looked forward to evenings out and was beginning to be terrified that anything I ate or drank could trigger another heartburn attack. As you can tell, this was ruining my life. I had to take action and find out what was causing it.
My fourth heartburn episode convinced me that I didn't want to keep pill-popping for the rest of my life to alleviate my agony. What were drugs doing to me on the inside? I wanted to know. I also wanted to know what my alternatives were, if there were any.
Until I started looking around, I really thought that pharmaceutical drugs were the only means to living a reasonable life when heartburn struck. Boy was I wrong, and this is what I hope to show you as well. You will soon see just how many alternatives there are to pill-popping. All you need to do is to have the courage to try them!
That's what this book is all about - looking at the alternatives. You don't have to be a heartburn sufferer though to read it. After all, doctors don't know who will suffer from heartburn and who won't. Who knows what tomorrow will bring for you?
