Seems like everyone I talk to these days have complaints of GERD (Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease), heart burn, hiatal hernia and other digestive complaints. They pop antacid and acid reducing pills like candy, thinking they are curing their disease. The truth is, the drugs are not cures. They suppress stomach acid (stomach enzymes!) to give relief, and, while symptomatically helpful, in the long haul they cause more problems than they help.
