Today I’m going to share with you the #1 mistake that’s made when treating heartburn. I’m also going to share a few heartburn remedies that you can try instead.

The #1 mistake that’s made when treating heartburn is alkalizing the stomach with things like PPIs (proton pump inhibitors). The #1 PPI used is called Nexium, and the #2 PPI used is called Prilosec. PPIs are one of the most widely sold medications in the world.

PPIs are used to help treat conditions, such as:
• Indigestion
• Ulcers
• Gastritis

Many doctors also suggest eating more fiber (in the form of whole grains), avoid fat, and eat bland foods (like crackers). But, grains alkalize the stomach.

I believe it’s very important to have a very acidic stomach. You need acid in your stomach to kill pathogens, break down proteins, and help you absorb minerals.

Potential side effects of PPIs:
• Abdominal pain
• Osteoporosis
• Sarcopenia
• Constipation
• Myopathy
• C-diff.
• Anxiety
• Fungal overgrowth
• Pneumonia
• Kidney disease

I believe the real potential cause of heartburn is things that weaken the stomach acids, and that heartburn typically comes from a lack of stomach acid. Refined grains, sugars, and processed foods can all weaken stomach acid. The weaker a person’s digestive system is, the more they need to support and enhance the digestive system.

Natural remedies for heartburn (support and enhance the digestive system):
1. Add acids (betaine hydrochloride and apple cider vinegar)
2. Add purified bile salts
3. Add probiotics
4. Steam or cook the vegetables you eat and consume fermented vegetables (eat fewer vegetables until you re-establish your acidic pH)
5. Consume fattier meat over leaner meat
6. Chew your food longer
7. Germinate the nuts you eat
