  1. Awesome teaching, where were you when I needed you 20 years ago. Got good grades but it was a whole lot more work than needed. As to the Gastric Reflux, there is a second school of thought.

    One doctor found that heart burn is a sign and symptom of a lack of free water and electrolytes. As a scientist, any nurse can prove it for themselves.

    As we expand the bounds of knowledge, we will be able to help more and more people in the future to avoid the loss we had to experience.

    To make the heart burn go away, take a pinch of salt and put on the tongue, then drink a glass of water. It should be gone in 6 minutes. To prevent heart burn, 30 minutes before eating, put a pinch of salt on the tongue and let it dissolve. Then drink a glass of water. No more heartburn.

    The research found the same to be true of ulcers but for a different reason. When the lining of our stomach and duodenum are unable to make the thick mucus lining that protects them from the highly acidic gastric juices, ulcers result. The lack of adequate mucous layer is thus more susceptible to attacks by the bacterium H. pylori, potentially resulting in ulcers. A lot of people have H-pylori but not all who have H-pylori have ulcers.

    I’m a first year student nurse and have my end of year nursing exam in two hours. I came on to your website for some quick, last minute revision on hypertonic solutions and then saw this article. My dear dad was diagnosed with stage 4 oesophageal cancer yesterday. The cause? Years of heartburn most likely. If you have heartburn, see your doctor and get it treated. It might just save your life.

    • Thank you for sharing! My prayers are with your family. I had seriously never thought about heart as a cause for cancer until I saw that bumper sticker, so I’m glad that I can play a small role in getting the word out now.
