“I have been taking a variety of medications for heartburn and yet it has not resolved the condition. Will I need to take them forever?”
The problem with treating heartburn symptoms like yours with OTC or prescription medicines is that you are chasing symptoms rather than finding the cause of the problem.
If we were to break it down and look for cause, often the answer could be found in relation to what was being consumed or in many cases what is lacking in the diet.
The first consideration is in nutrition. Is the diet rich in alkaline based foods? Secondly, are you hydrating yourself sufficiently? The body, being 75% water and the brain 83%, requires that there is adequate replenishing of itself. Fresh, clean water must be consumed daily to hydrate the brain, otherwise being the master regulator, it will draw the water up from other organs if it becomes deficient. This pulling of the body fluid up to the brain, leaves the other organs lacking in vital body fluids. This alone can lead to heartburn, gastric ulcers and ulcerative colitis, and other threatening illnesses. So drink your water!
Please consult your naturopathic doctor to take the necessary steps to overcome these issues.
