Sometimes great things happen in natural medicine which go almost unnoticed to the general public. A recent independent study has identified a herbal preparation which is as effective as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), such as Nexium and Losec, in the treatment of gastro-oesophageal reflux. PPIs are drugs which are meant to be used in the short term but often people end up taking them for years. These drugs may inhibit the absorption of important nutrients, which can then contribute to other health issues.
