HEARTBURN


Heartburn is one of the most common digestion ailments affecting people today. Until it gets very serious, people often dismiss it as not a big concern such as excusing that it was just something they ate or they pop a few antacids and go on their merry way. Ignoring heartburn, though, can lead to long term complications including some as serious as esophageal cancer. Yikes!

Dietary intervention is a great place to start. There are some things commonly known to trigger heartburn such as: caffeine, fatty or fried foods, spicy foods, acidic foods like tomatoes and citrus fruits, and alcohol. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day is also important. But what if you’ve already taken all those foods out and still can’t figure out what’s causing heartburn? The MRT® (Mediator Release Test) will help identify the foods that are causing you inflammation. Working with a Certified LEAP Therapist (someone trained in MRT®) will help ensure your gut healing success.
