Try to wrap your mind around this! This is your acid reflux moment-of-Zen!
When you run to the doctor for acid reflux and get your pills, what are you hoping for here? What is it you want?
Well, you want to be fixed up and get back to normal so you can get back to doing the things and eating or drinking the things you always did.
But what are you really doing here?
You are saying to yourself: Something is wrong with me that won’t just go away. I’ve been putting up with this long enough and I just want it gone. I need something or someone from outside of myself to help me, I can’t do it alone.
You are done denying that there is a problem and you now want to fight and put an end to the problem of acid reflux or heartburn.
But what I want you to see is that both of these strategies, running away from the problem or fighting the problem, won’t get you what you want!
You have to go into the problem, embrace the disease of acid reflux to understand it and transcend it (more on this in the book).
That is what I’m trying to help you do with this site and the book.
