Getting Rid of Heartburn and Acid Reflux

Thank you Sarah! Wow what a transformation I have seen in my health and overall comfort level… I came to Sarah for help after the onset of chronic heartburn which was making my life miserable. Before  coming to see Sarah I saw my Primary Care doctor and he prescribed me a common heartburn medication without much of any other treatment suggestions. I picked up the prescription and began taking it… However quickly thereafter I abandoned the prescription due to side effects and my concern that I was only applying band aide and not addressing the root of the problem.

So off I went to see Sarah at Acupuncture Northwest. Sarah’s very straight forward advise was to stop drinking coffee and begin taking an herbal formula. Keep in mind I have a very healthy diet that is low in saturated fat, high in fiber and is whole food oriented, which made it even more perplexing as to why I acquired Acid Reflux.

My coffee intake was modest and typically it consisted of only a single shot soy latte each morning. However even that modest amount was enough to give me persistent Heartburn. Why? Because as Sarah explained – coffee is highly acidic. Unfortunately for those of us who are sensitive, coffee is a problem and should be avoided and consumed only occasionally if at all. While it seemed impossible to almost entirely eliminate the morning latte, I feel so much better now that I did.

Thank you.
