Antacids (like Tums, Rolaids, Maalox) neutralize digestive
acid that's in the stomach. H2 blockers (like Tagamet,
Pepcid and Zantac) stop the chemical histamine from sending
the signal to your stomach to produce digestive acids.
PPI's (like Nexium, Aciphex, Prevacid and Prilosec) block
the secretion of digestive acid into the stomach in its
acid-secreting cells or "pumps."
The problem with all three of these pictures is that your
stomach NEEDS digestive acid!
That's right. The stomach MUST have acid to digest and
utilize the proteins you eat.
So whether you neutralize the acid, halt the signal to
produce it or block the acid "pumps," you're completely
obliterating your digestion.
As a result your food ends up sitting in your stomach for
8 hours or more, fermenting, rotting and putrefying.
That means gas galore.
Plus constipation, cramps, diarrhea, regurgitation, sour
burps, heartburn, you-name-it.
Plus you don't get the benefit of the nutrients from
poorly digested food, either. So you feel hungry again
even when your stomach is stuffed with the rotting mass
inside it--it's almost like you're malnourished.
If you do eat something at this point, it just adds to the
And once the antacid, H2 blocker or PPI wears off, the
cycle starts all over again.
This is incredibly dangerous.
Eventually you get to the point where the antacid, H2
blocker or PPI doesn't work as well as it seemed to before.
So you go back to the doctor, who either puts you on
another drug, or ups the dose of the one you're on and
sends you on your way.
The big picture here is you end up on the white coat
treadmill, with no significant improvement in your acid
reflux, and on drugs for what looks like the rest of your
And, by the way, PPIs are only meant for short-term use (6
months or less). They haven't even been tested for longer

Here's what you need to know: What causes acid reflux is
NOT the stomach doing its job and secreting acid.
It's the OVER production of acid caused by acid-forming
foods and bad combinations of foods.
Eating the way I learned in Great Taste No Pain and you will
be like the thousands of former acid reflux sufferers I've
helped and you'll say goodbye to your symptoms AND goodbye
to the drugs for good.
In GTNP you'll learn exactly what foods are acid creating
(they're not what you think they are).
You'll see how easy and delicious eating correctly
combined meals is, thanks to my easy to read manuals and
And the best part is the results happen FAST! Most people
see a drastic improvement within a day or two...a few days
max, and many stop their stomach drugs within a week.
Instead of spending time and boatloads of money on the
white coat treadmill taking one drug after another for the
rest of your life, why not make a one-time small purchase
for something that will rid your acid reflux for good?
