    I agree that taking PPI's over the long term is not good for anyone. It is much better to tackle the causes of your acid reflux rather than treating the symptoms after they appear. There are many effective herbal remedies that people can try and they will save money in doing so. Read this article, acid reflux natural cures that work for more information about herbal cures.

    Treating GERD with herbal remedies is not significantly better than taking PPI's. These remedies may ameliorate the symptoms, but don't address the cause. GERD is not so much a disease, as it is a condition. Excessive carbohydrate in the diet is a common cause. Many of my clients find the symptoms disappear when they adequately minimize refined sugars and starches in their diet. In addition, they usually enjoy many other benefits including decreased weight, edema, blood pressure, improved triglycerides and HDL-cholesterol levels and a host of other symptoms.
