Acid Reflux - Maybe Not!

Just thought I would pass this along for those of you who may have bouts of what may appear to be acid reflux.  Do you sometimes feel as though your food gets stuck mid-esophagus?  Maybe you have had bouts of vomiting as well.  Always check with your doctor whenever you have any of these symptoms, but one thing I wanted to pass along to you is to ask whether you are taking any of your pills and lying down immediately after?

If so, then you are setting yourself up for irritation of your esophagus which can lead to the above symptoms.  Some medications in particular can be very harsh on the espophagus, and if you take these meds and then lay down immediately after, you will probably feel the results of this within a couple of days.  It's always best to take your meds with lots of fluid and try to sit up for at least half an hour to allow the meds to get through your esophagus "before" you lay down.

Consult with your doctor first, but be vigilant when taking oral medications.

I stumbled onto your blog..
Please Please loook for more information. I understand that carrot juice is so good for you. But to actually beat cancer all the way it is recommended that you drink AT LEAST ONE QUART per day every day for at least 40 days. That amount keeps ahead of the cancer cells and actually kills them off before they can make new.
I know of individuals who are cancer free because of carrot juice. I cannot divulge more because of privacy but PLEASE search the web and you will find that recommendation....
good luck to you
