Heartburn Might not Be a Heart Attack but it Might Cause One?

GERD is a common complain for many Americans.  Almost all GI doctors immediately treat you for GERD with PPI drugs like Prilosec, Nexium, or Protonics.  These drugs dry up the acid in the stomach.  Long-term use of these meds have a couple of problems.  First the problem might be too little acid rather than too much.  Second, PPI drugs lead to a 16% increase in heart attacks, probably because they interfere with the digestion of important nutrients that tend to protect against having heart attacks.  Alternative docs have other ways to treat GERD.  Find one and see how they can help you.
