I was at a summer party recently that was catered by the famous Syracuse, NY "Dinosaur Bar-B-Que" restaurant.
The food was phenomenally delicious...and as you can imagine, some of it was pretty spicy too!
Sad thing was, when the food was being served, I overheard at least 8 different people saying things like this:
"Good thing I took my Prilosec today!"
"I can't eat this stuff with my acid reflux."
"I like this spicy food, but it doesn't like me."
"Uh-oh. If I eat that, my chest will be on fire tonight!"
But here's the thing that most acid reflux sufferers don't realize:
It's 100% AVOIDABLE
It's not a disease, it's an immediate reaction to food -- it's CREATED. And it's just as easy to avoid it as it is to create it.
Here's what I mean:
Reflux is NOT a disease
Contrary to what you may have been told by a doctor or read in an ad for acid reducing medications, acid reflux is NOT a disease.
It's simply your body telling you that you screwed up... that it can't effectively digest what you've eaten.
When your body can't break down what you've eaten, the digestive process is halted. That's when the familiar heartburn, acid in your throat, chest pain, nausea and belching rear their ugly heads.
But if you instead listen to your body and give it the help it needs to accomplish digestion, acid reflux is a non-issue.
And by "help," I'm NOT referring to acid reducers. They make the problem WORSE--not better--by shutting down the acid that your stomach needs to break down proteins.
I'm talking about eating foods that naturally digest easily together and supplementing with enzymes if necessary.
Let's take a quick look at why this is so effective:
Acid reflux in the works
Acid reflux is created by eating foods that are inherently acid-creating in your body, and/or meals that are complex (comprised of a wide variety of food groups).
A food is considered "acid-creating" if its residue following digestion is acidic (with a pH less than 7). Foods that are naturally acid-creating include processed foods, fast food, animal products and refined carbs.
In addition, each type of food you eat requires a specific kind of digestive enzyme -- some foods are broken down by an acid enzyme and others by an alkaline enzyme.
So when your meals are complex and made up of several different types of foods, the mixing of the opposing acid and alkaline enzymes in your stomach can cause the enzymes to be neutralized and weakened.
This hampers your digestion and -- BOOM! -- hello acid reflux.
Food is the cause of reflux AND the remedy
When you eat more alkaline foods and meals that foods that only require complimentary digestive enzymes, your digestion improves dramatically and there will be no reflux.
And no sleeping propped up on pillows!
It's so easy...
I teach you exactly what to in the Great Taste No Pain health system.
Follow it and you will see the fires of acid reflux dim as quickly as your first meal!
And for those of you who are sensitive to gluten too, Great Taste No Gluten is for you.
With either one, you'll still be able to eat foods you LOVE. You just need to be a little more discerning about what you eat together so it can be broken down efficiently.
I also spell right out which foods are inherently acid-forming and alkaline, so there's no guessing. It's the easiest to follow health guide you've ever seen.
Dummy-proof is what many call them.
And both the GTNP and GTNG recipe books are loaded with delicious creations that are sure to become some of your family's favorites.
Enzymes For Reflux
Poor digestion and acid reflux is often the result of the body not producing an adequate amount of digestive enzymes.
You see, after years of an acid-creating diet like I described above, chances are great you have diminished your body's ability to produce enzymes, because you've used up so many trying to digest complex meals for so long.
And when your body's done making enzymes, it's DONE.
And you're screwed.
Plus, eating cooked foods saps your body's enzymes because the naturally occurring enzymes in the food are reduced or destroyed the more you cook the food...so your body has to do ALL the work, using it's own enzymes to digest it with no help from the now-dead food.
Digestizol Max digestive enzyme formula can give your body a much-needed boost when you eat meats, dairy, starchy carbs, and any foods that have been cooked.
Digestizol Max is a safe, natural blend of 14 plant-derived enzymes that come to your body's aid like terminators, helping to break down whatever you've eaten -- protein, fats, carbs, you-name-it.
If you suffer from acid reflux and think that you must spend the rest of your life on dangerous, expensive acid reducers, you don't.
If you think that you'll never be able to enjoy tasty, spicy food without "paying the price," you're mistaken.
You can turn that around in as quickly as one meal.
You CAN eat spicy foods and NOT get reflux.
All it takes is changing what you eat together and possibly some enzyme help to start a whole new acid-reflux-free life for you.
Start your new life now with Great Taste No Pain or Great Taste No Gluten and Digestizol Max.
To your health,
PS: Samantha is "singing the praises" (literally) of GTNP and Digestizol Max:
I wrote to you about seven weeks ago explaining that I was diagnosed with acid reflux and hiatal hernia in December 2010. I'm a singing teacher and the acid had burnt my larynx making it impossible to sing for months.
I was continually frustrated with the consultants telling me to continue with omeprazole even though the reflux was not going away! I felt that it was actually making it worse!
My last meeting with the consultant in June was dismal. Again no improvement, but I was still told to continue with the medication.
I went home determined to find another way. I found your website, ordered GTNP and Digestizol Max and followed your suggestions to the letter for 6 weeks.
In the last two weeks I have had a series of tests with consultants to assess progress. I am ecstatic to say that the ENT specialist described my vocal cords as 'beautiful' and following a 24 hour ph test told that I no longer have acid reflux! (I already felt this to be true)
All this by following GTNP food plan for 6 weeks.
I celebrated with a glass of red wine!
Thank you so much. I intend to follow this plan for life, it's easy, tasty and make complete sense.
Thank you Sherry for giving me a way back and in the process I've learnt so much about the digestive system
