Heartburn No More is a revolutionary program written by a chap called Jeff Martin who used to experience severe stomach pains from acid reflux and excess acid production in its stomach.
His experience with seeking out a cure that did not rely on the medical establishment has been recorded in his program Heartburn No More, which features DVDs, MP3s, downloadable e-book, and a number of bonuses available free of charge, all of which are designed to ensure that you experience minimal problems from acid reflux in the future.
So how does it work? Well, it is a natural reflux home remedy – that is, one born of a holistic approach to excess stomach acid.
Well, first of all, the critical factor is taking responsibility for your own health, which is not something that many of us do, when you think about it!
We all tend to go to the doctor first and foremost to get a prescription medication which will solve all our problems in one fell swoop.
Yet the truth of the matter, is that there are always side-effects, and always disadvantages to this approach — so, for example when you go and get a prescription for anything like hydrogen blockers, or Prilosec, which is a proton pump inhibitor, you find that there are side-effects.
And in the case of the proton pump inhibitors, or PPIs, the side-effects can be potentially quite serious — those recorded effect so far include bone demineralization, susceptibility to Clostridium difficile, and there are some suggestions of more serious issues like kidney problems.
Now I don’t worry you, because I’m sure that if you have excess stomach acid that is burning a hole in the mucosa of your stomach, the first thing you want is an immediate solution — but nonetheless, once you’ve got an immediate solution, the question is whether or not you will turn your attention to a longer-term solution will eliminate the root cause.
Now that raises the question of what the root cause of acid reflux might actually be — and in the case of excess acid production, I think we can fairly and squarely lay the blame at the door of stress.
Stress is an interesting problem because we seem to be so tolerant of it, and yet it’s so destructive to our well-being at every level — spiritual, emotional, and physical.
My observation, both from personal experience of watching others with acid reflux problems, tends to suggest that the cause of acid reflux is often conflict or anxiety. I suppose if you call this stress, then you probably going on the mark: would you be prepared to take the time to eliminate stress that is causing acid reflux from your life, in order that you can experience a more holistic and acceptable level of health?
If so, then Jeff Martin’s book Heartburn No More is probably the better prescription for you (that is to say, the better prescription compared to Prilosec and Losec).

Now, what Heartburn No More will require you to do is to examine those aspects of your life that are causing you stress, and take remedial action — which might imply a meditation and relaxation session of the day, or it might imply some more fundamental remedial action such as counselling or therapy to come to terms with those things that are causing you fundamental emotional conflicts and problems.
These are some times challenging and difficult situations to deal with, but compared to a lifetime on medication, I wonder which you would actually prefer?
There are no right or wrong answers that question, because we are all different, but what I would urge you to consider is the fact that when your body is protesting, by producing excessive stomach acid, and then causing acid reflux, that may be a signal to you that something needs attention.
If you take medication, rather than holistic health care, what you’re effectively doing is covering up the signal that your body is giving you, asking you to take remedial action to put something right that could have long-term deleterious effects.
