Default Aciphex

I'd like to slap the doctor who removed my hyatial (sp) 'ring'... sure it was hard to swallow when I didn't chew well or eat slowly, but at least those were healthy eating habits an were much better compared to the daily dose of aciphex i'm doomed to take for the rest of my life. I truly believe these doctors get some sort of kick-back for starting people on expensive drugs and that they are interested in 'maintaining' people (revenue) rather than curing them. I hate being on this pill, and I hate the side-effects, and am searching for natural methods and lifestyle to control my reflux. The long term effects of this drug have not been studied past five years, yet doctors encourage people to become dependent on it rather than help people change to a diet and lifestyle that would control their reflux naturally. Whenever I ask a doctor about controlling reflux naturally, I get a blank stare (deer caught in headlights), as if I've committed a mortal sin by suggesting that pills are not the ultimate answer to every malady. Anyway, enough of my rant, if any of you have successfully been rehabed from the refulx pill addiction culture through natural methods please let me know. M 36 6 years on aciphex <br><br>
