Almonds Eliminate Need for Nexium
Q. I am 68 and have taken antacids since I was 16. When the
prescription drugs came out, I was delighted. I have taken everything
from Tagamet to Nexium, which I have been on for the last four years.
After reading about people having success with almonds, I
tried it. I'm astounded at how effective this is. On my first try, I
went for eight days without Nexium just by eating two or three almonds
before meals. Now I need Nexium only after a spicy meal.
A. We don't know why this seems to work, but we have heard from many
readers that eating a few almonds right after a meal can ward off
heartburn. Thanks for letting us know that the almonds may be eaten
before the meal as well.
