"I really can’t believe how powerful hypnosis is. I accomplished more in 6 months then I have in 3 years of therapy. I have better self esteem, motivation, and I am now a more positive person. I used to be a worry wart and negative about everything in life. Dr. Robert your service is fantastic."

“I am so glad I consulted with you. The chemotherapy I was receiving was causing me to lose weight. Through your diet I was able to put the much needed weight back on and keep my immune system strong. Even when I had trouble getting food down you were able to work out a way for me to get my much needed calories. I still avoid those foods you told me would weaken my immune system and I feel you really helped me during my treatments.
- Mildred Harnack,
Lyndhurst, NJ

“I have nothing but great things to say about The Banish! Program. I am 53 and have smoked since I was a teenager. I have tried to quit countless times. Cold turkey, patches, gum, zyban, you name it I tried it. All except hypnosis. I'm not even sure how I found out about your site, but I decided to sign up. Right after the session I felt different. Very little cravings and no cheating. I have been smoke free now for 5 months. This is a huge accomplishment for me. I have never been able to go more then a week or two without backsliding and returning to smoking. I am so delighted that your program worked. I have told several people about it and will continue to spread the word if anyone is trying to quit.”
–Edward Robinson,
Pequannock, NJ

“You're a hit. We received a lot of positive feedback regarding your programs. Your really provide a great service to the community. Thank you for the all the hard work in making our programs a success. We look forward to working with you again.”

-Mary Lou, Maywood, NJ

“The migraines I have had during my PMS week are much improved. Your advice worked.”
-Patricia Glasser,

-Alexis Varner, NJ

“You really helped me advance my career by helping me overcome my fear of public speaking.”
-Brian B. Lawyer, NJ

-Sheila T, Nurse, NJ

“My cholesterol is down below 200. Thanks for your guidance."
-John Mason,

“My boyfriend went out and signed me up to see Dr. Robert, knowing how debilitating my depression had become. I was skeptical, because anything I’d ever tried in the past that promised relief never worked.

I was really surprised at what Dr. Robert told me. I had no idea the negative effects my habits were having. I couldn’t believe that in just one week I was feeling so much better!"
-Kathy Nates,
CityGardens, Long Island, NY


What is it, what are the symptoms,
causes, treatments and remedies?

If our commercials are to be believed, ever single person suffers, or has suffered, from heartburn or ‘acid reflux’. Millions of dollars are spent yearly on antacids, prescriptions drugs and many other remedies to stop that annoying, often-times painful burning sensation most of us have felt one time or another. Chronic heartburn or acid reflux can cause nearly unbearable discomfort and in some cases, real physical problems for the person suffering. While there are surely treatments for acid reflux disease, from those advertised drugs to natural remedies, it is prudent to get to the cause of what may start out as a nuisance but grow to a very real problem.

What Is Acid Reflux?

Refluxus or ‘reflux’ comes from the Latin word refluere, meaning "to flow back, to recede". When you suffer from acid reflux, you experience a ‘flow back’, specifically the acids from your stomach ‘bubble-up’ into your esophagus, causing the discomfort and pain of what is commonly known as ‘heartburn’; acid reflux is the action, heartburn is the sensation.

While the lining of your stomach is usually protected from the effect of your powerful gastric juices, the lining of our esophagus isn’t. Though there is a valve that stops the gastric juices from rising up the esophagus-the cardiac sphincter is the name of this valve-if this valve becomes weak those hot gastric juices can seep up into your esophagus. While you may feel these juices rise up from time to time, in some cases, as in chronic acid reflux suffers, an untreated and consistent ‘hearburn’ can develop into GERD (Gastroesophagel Reflux Disease) which can scar the esophagus and increase the risk of cancer.

This is why it is so important to determine if what you’re feeling is ‘normal’ occasional heartburn or a chronic state of acid reflux. Pregnant women, people who smoke or drink to access, even those of us who overeat from time to time may experience this annoying, sometimes painful heartburn. If the condition persists it might very well be time to see someone like me, Dr Robert so I can determine the severity of your acid reflux and how together you might best battle it.

What are some of the holistic and conventional views
of the causes of Irritable bowel syndrome?

Below are some of the factors that can cause or contribute to your acid reflux:

  • Eating a large meal which will force your body to produce a great deal of acid to digest it.
  • Fatty foods, chocolate, and tomatoes can contribute to acid reflux. Each person may have different ‘trigger foods’, so a thorough investigation needs to be performed to discover the foods that may be setting you off.
  • Tobacco use can cause your heartburn to become worse.
  • Contrary to medical belief, too little stomach acid can cause acid reflux. As we age our acid production diminishes leading to smaller amounts which can more easily splash up the esophagus.
  • A stressful lifestyle can give you the sensation of heartburn.

There are many reasons why you may suffer with heartburn. Listed above are the most common nutrition and lifestyle reasons.

Acid reflux or heartburn symptoms

Acid reflux symptoms can vary, but below are the most common:

  • Heartburn or a burning sensation in your stomach area
  • An uncomfortable ‘discomforting’ feeling in your stomach
  • Regurgitation of acid backing up in your mouth
  • Burping following a meal
  • A feeling of nausea after eating
  • A bloating sensation of stomach fullness
  • Abdominal pain or discomfort in your upper area around your stomach

If you are suffering from acid reflux there are many highly successful natural approaches that can be used to alleviate your heartburn symptoms.

Acid Reflux treatment and remedies

While we can pop pills to ‘cool down’ our heartburn, there is no true acid reflux cure. It is much more beneficial then to ‘treat’ acid reflux from a natural approach, through diet, stress management and a solid supplement regime, like one I can determine for you.

A good diet is the key to your acid reflux treatment and remedies. What starts out as occasional heartburn can turn into a chronic state of acid reflux and eventually lead to more serious problems in the future.

Additional acid reflux treatments and remedies rebalance the over or under production of acid through digestive support supplements and if needed, a good stress management approach helps to. But without a good diet, none of the above will work. All our health needs benefit from a proper diet; it’s not just a defense against acid reflux but all the other digestive disorders.

What you should know about H-2 receptor medication
like Zantac and Tagament to treat acid reflux.

These medications that block the production of stomach acid can, over time cause a condition called hypochlorhydria, a condition where your body doesn’t produce enough acid. Your symptoms may go away because you have no acid to cause the heartburn symptom, but now you have no acid to digest your vitamins, minerals and nutrients. Over time this can lead to deficiencies of your nutrients. This is also stated on the side effect list of your medication.

This is one reason why a holistic and or alternative medicine approach is so powerful. Naturopathic practioners like myself look to correct the underlying causing issue to your problems, not just the symptoms.
