Heartburn and Acid Reflux Medication Warnings

Heartburn and acid reflux sufferers typically take a heartburn medication such as the brand Zantac.  Unfortunately, Zantac may contain a chemical called n-nitrosodiummethylamine (NDMA).  The International Agency for Cancer Research classifies NDMA as a probable carcinogen, leading to abnormal tumor growths and liver abnormalities.  The good news is there are natural alternatives that ease or prevent the symptoms of heart burn or acid reflux.  A table spoon of pure apple cider vinegar in a glass of water has shown to reduce heartburn and acid reflux.  In addition, Standard Process makes a whole foods product called Zypan that helps many of our patients with acid reflux / heart burn.
