Too much and too little of something spoils everything. Whether it’s in the food you eat, the medicines you take, or the indulgences you entertain, moderation is key to a safer, healthier life. Dr. Jockers discusses the dangers of prolonged intake of heartburn medications and the natural solutions that can help alleviate the pain instead. He also tackles the major causes of why heartburn happens, the types of individuals who are more prone to suffer from it, and the specific activities you can incorporate in your daily activities to help improve your digestive environment.

“Medications have a time and place. Many of them have side effects, and taking them long-term can be dangerous.”

  1. Excellent podcast! I will try the diet change with eating protein first, no liquids before/during/after meals. I also dropped protonix over a year ago and exclusively use ACV capsules now. The withdrawel from protonix was brutal, but after a few days… WOW! what a difference. Thank you for all you educate us about! Appreciated!! 🙂
