Can you relieve heartburn without meds?

HeartburnHeartburn is a very common condition , with one in 10 Americans experiencing heartburn symptoms at least once a week.  It can be brought on by a number of different factors, including stress, obesity, pregnancy, being a smoker and eating certain foods.  Symptoms of Heartburn can be described as a burning sensation in the chest which may radiate to the throat or jaw.

Many people with heartburn turn immediately to medication for relief of their symptoms, but often lifestyle changes are just as effective, and reduce the risk of side effects from prescriptions or over-the-counter drugs.  These side effects can include infections, pneumonia and even increased risk of bone fractures.  In fact, some experts say that 60 to 70 percent of people taking heartburn drugs probably don’t need them, or could see just as much benefit from simple lifestyle changes.

Cancer-causing chemical found in 89 percent of cities sampled!

We have had a lot of inquiries lately about whether the Alkal-Life Water System after all of the news surrounding the findings of recent water tests. For those of you that have not heard the news, below is an article from the Environmental Working Group Organization.

Cancer-causing chemical found in 89 percent of cities sampled

Laboratory tests commissioned by Environmental Working Group have detected hexavalent chromium, the carcinogenic “Erin Brockovich chemical,” in tap water from 31 of 35 American cities. The highest levels were in Norman, Okla.; Honolulu, Hawaii; and Riverside, Calif. In all, water samples from 25 cities contained the toxic metal at concentrations above the safe maximum recently proposed by California regulators.

The National Toxicology Program has concluded that hexavalent chromium (also called chromium-6) in drinking water shows “clear evidence of carcinogenic activity” in laboratory animals, increasing the risk of gastrointestinal tumors. In September 2010, a draft toxicological review by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) similarly found that hexavalent chromium in tap water is “likely to be carcinogenic to humans.”
