There’s a reason why our supplements work and that’s because there is a whole lot more to the process than you just popping a pill daily and hoping for results. If you’ve ever spoken to us on Facebook (our DMs are always open) you know that we genuinely care about the success of our clients and we want you to feel better. Why? Because we’ve been where you are.
Our company has been built by a team of people who are truly invested in finding solutions for all of the common digestive complaints that are so often dismissed by doctors. We know what it’s like to walk out of a doctor’s office with a prescription but without a listening ear. We know what it’s like not to feel heard or supported. And we want to fix that. We want to help. And we want to empower you to take back control of your own health.
From the moment you purchase our products until the day your health concern is resolved, we’ll be right here to guide you through the process and answer any questions you have. And if you don’t have Facebook, you can email us too! ([email protected])
It’s taken our team years of research and trial and error to finally find the exact formulations that work to resolve some of the most prevalent health concerns that many people like you deal with on a daily basis and one of the most popular products that we’ve developed so far is our Heartburn Relief Kit, which isn’t surprising – considering that up to 30% of people in the US alone suffer from this condition. That’s just the US by the way.. don’t forget we ship worldwide!
We don’t pretend to be medical experts. But we are experts in understanding the struggles of acid reflux. We know what it’s like to wake up at 3am and feel like your throat is on fire. Or for your chest to hurt so much that it feels like you’re having a heart attack. And it’s understanding that suffering that has led us to find a solution. The solution that we now want to share with all of you. Does it work for everyone? No. I mean, does anything work for everyone? But in our experience, our Heartburn Relief Kit works for about 85% of people… and that’s a pretty decent outcome, don’t you think?
So, What’s In The Kit?
No-one wants to take a pill if they don’t know what’s in it. We totally get that. We wouldn’t either! So in this section I’m going to explain what’s in each supplement and how it works to resolve your acid reflux. This is the “science-y” part…so get ready.
Product #1: Acid Relief
You’re going to get started on your treatment plan with our Acid Relief supplement. You’ll take x2 Acid Relief daily for week 1 (at any time) along with your PPI if you’re currently on one.
This is a vital component in our Heartburn Relief Kit as it promotes healing and has a soothing effect to give you relief from the painful burning most people experience from acid reflux.
If you’ve been suffering from acid reflux for more than a few months, then it’s likely that you have some tissue damage as a result. This is why Acid Relief contains powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients such as Slippery Elm Bark which resolves any pre-existing acid damage and irritation that may be causing your pain. This age-old remedy has been used for centuries to cure many ailments and is also well-recognized for its role in protecting against the development of stomach ulcers.
When you take your Acid Relief supplement, the Slippery Elm Bark works with Licorice DGL (another key ingredient), to increase mucus secretion in the gut which coats the lining of the stomach and esophagus. This protective barrier reduces pain and inflammation and also protects against further acid damage to allow for healing.
Other primary ingredients in Acid Relief include German Chamomile Extract and Aloe Vera Leaf Gel, which further reduce inflammation to naturally ease the symptoms of heartburn.
German Chamomile Extract has also been proven to:
- improve sleep quality
- reduce anxiety
- ease muscle spasms.
Furthermore, clinical studies have also noted a reduction in GERD symptoms in just 4 weeks in patients who supplemented with Aloe Vera Leaf Gel.
While the Acid Relief supplement continues to soothe & repair your esophagus and gut linings, the 2nd part of our kit – the Reflux Inhibitor – will start going to work on restoring proper function of your lower esophageal sphincter muscle (the hidden cause of acid reflux for millions of Americans).
And then the Reflux Inhibitor gets to work!
On day 8 of your treatment plan, you’re going to start taking the Reflux Inhibitor supplement. At this time you may experiment with tapering off of your PPI (please consult your physician if you have any concerns). You’ll take 2 Reflux Inhibitors daily before your heaviest meal and increase this dose daily (up to 5 Reflux Inhibitors at a meal) until you start seeing improvements.
It can usually take about 2 weeks on the Reflux Inhibitor to see noticeable improvements, so if you don’t feel any different after the first week or so, don’t worry – it just needs some time to kick in. Remember, you’ve likely had this problem for a long time, so it can’t be fixed overnight. The Reflux Inhibitor works by raising stomach acidity and adding key enzymes strategically during digestion.
Acid reflux primarily happens for two (related) reasons:
1) Your stomach acid is too low.
2) Low acidity levels are contributing to your lower esophageal sphincter muscle (LES) not getting the signal to close properly.
Your lower esophageal sphincter muscle (LES) is triggered to close when your body believes it is digesting food. What signals to your body that digestion has begun? The secretion of stomach acid! So when it’s too low (or being prevented by a PPI), your LES stays open and acid comes back up into your esophagus, causing reflux.The Reflux Inhibitor contains Betaine HCL with Pepsin which increases acid production in your stomach (specifically during digestion) to get your LES working properly again, so that it closes after you eat and you no longer get acid reflux.
This increase in stomach acidity will also help with issues such as gas and bloating which are often also a result of low stomach acid. This is because your gut needs sufficient acid to break down the food you eat, so when that acid is too low it causes food to sit and ferment in your gut, rather than being fully digested. When we get your stomach acidity back to an optimal level, these symptoms should also be alleviated.
What About Other Conditions Like Gastritis, Hiatal Hernia, Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EOE), or Barrett’s Esophagus?
These issues can add complication to the treatment but we’ve absolutely had success in treating them! Just check out this real review from a client who recently recovered from Barrett’s Esophagus after 3 months on our supplements.
“I was diagnosed with Gerd and Barrett’s syndrome. My GI doc prescribed a PPI to “take care of” my problem. I much prefer to go the natural root and found Terra Health Essentials. I stopped the chemical route and after 3 months, my reflux issues have nearly disappeared. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” (Read the original review here)
Some issues are easier to treat than others, and BE is certainly a more complex case, but if you send us a DM we’ll be happy to guide you on your treatment plan and advise you on where to start. For example, in the case of BE we really want to heal up your esophagus before we introduce the Reflux Inhibitor. So in most cases, we would advise you to try the Acid Relief supplement for a little longer before introducing Reflux Inhibitor.
We have had great success stories from clients with Gastritis and Hiatal Hernias as well. Again with gastritis, we really want to work on healing any pain and inflammation first, so that initial week on the Acid Relief is super important. If it’s co-existing with acid reflux (which is very common), then it’s best to get the full kit, but if it’s gastritis only, then the Acid Relief alone will suffice.
For Eosinophilic Esophagitis (EOE), we’ve had success with the Heartburn Relief Kit, but it’s more 50/50 in this regard. This is because this condition is sometimes autoimmune, meaning that the acid reflux isn’t being caused by low stomach acid. Usually we recommend that clients try the full kit and we always offer our full 60 day refund guarantee if the Reflux Inhibitor doesn’t work for them in this case.
The good news about EOE is that the Acid Relief supplement will be of great help in treating this condition on an ongoing basis, as it can vastly reduce the discomfort, irritation, and inflammation for much-needed relief.
And remember, you can always send us a DM if you need more guidance on dosage for co-existing conditions (or anything at all!) and we’ll be happy to help.
How Long Is The Treatment?
Rest assured that this is not intended to be a life-long supplement. We’re here to help you get rid of your acid reflux for good. The Heartburn Relief Kit treatment plan is intended to be 100-120 days and upon completion our goal for the majority of clients is to get you off of Reflux Inhibitor so that you’re no longer dependent on any medications. Your gut can heal itself, if you give it the right foundation to do so. And once it is back in balance, you should no longer need daily supplements.
Some people like to keep some Acid Relief “on standby” in case of a flare-ups. The same holds true for Reflux Inhibitor, when you have large meals. Others will continue with a maintenance product such as our pH balancer to stabilize acidity in your body and maintain optimal gut health. But that’s completely up to you because as long as you look after yourself and your diet, there’s no reason that your acid reflux has to return. Your health is your own now, and we know you’ll look after it once you get it back.
