Gut Check Fact Check
One hundred million Americans suffer from some kind of gut problem. The problem is that few people know how to address common digestive complaints and they rarely visit the doctor. Antacids and probiotics aren’t a cure-all.

Today’s research on digestive health is enlightening. Many of today’s drugs treat symptoms, but extended use can be detrimental. Don’t shorten your life expectancy by reaching for medications for long-term digestive problems. The underlying cause has to be treated.

These natural treatments may help you.

  • For constant burping, take your time while eating. Be more mindful and chew your food.
  • For acid reflux, drink alkaline water after meals. Add lemon to letter water to save even more money
  • Look to natural digestive aids instead of popping an antacid.
  • Probiotics are great for overall health but they don’t digest food for you. Enzymes break down food particles that your body can absorb, reducing gas, bloating, heartburn and chronic indigestion.
