This revolutionary book unleashes a brilliant new plan for permanently curing heartburn by relieving the most common cause of the problem: insufficient stomach acid secretion. The fact is that, contrary to popular belief, heartburn is almost always associated with too little stomach acid, not too much. As explained in this book, the current medical practice of reducing stomach acid-when stomach acid secretion is already impaired-is a 'band-aid' approach that cannot cure the disorder but only temporarily suppresses its symptoms. This quick fix may come at a long-term cost to our health that is being ignored by the pharmaceutical industry, the FDA, and the thousands of physicians who prescribe powerful acid-suppressing drugs like Prilosec, Prevacid, Tagamet, Zantac, Pepcid, and others. Dr. Wright strongly urges us to avoid using these synthetic chemicals. Instead, he recommends a comprehensive program that involves restoring the stomach to its normal, healthy state by replacing what is missing by taking safe, inexpensive stomach acid supplements and other natural treatments.
