Heartburn is everything but pleasant. The stabbing pain in the chest and fiery sensation in the throat is enough to put a downer on any day.
Unfortunately, antacids and heartburn medication have proven less helpful than initially anticipated. The list of side-effects of taking these meds is scary:
* Stomach infections - of the serious kind - Clostridium difficile (C. Diff) and Campylobacter
* Dangerous depletion of magnesium, iron, calcium, vitamin B12 and other essential nutrients in the body
* Bone fractures
* Kidney disease
* And more...
But, it's not as easy as just putting up with the heartburn either. Severe heartburn can damage the lining of the stomach and can lead to stomach cancer.
So what do you do? Keep reading for ways to reduce heartburn without the side-effects...
