This whole "illness thing" has really turned me on to homeopathic medicine too. I have been seeing doctors for years with no good advice. They prescribe more acid reducers and I thought I've been on Prilosec, tagamet, zantac, prevacid, aciphex and nexium and STILL have heartburn, is this how I'm going to have to live the rest of my life and I'm only in my early 30's. They are only masking the illness by treating the symptoms but not getting to the root of the problem. I'll still go to the doctor, but I know to educate myself if I really want to feel better.
