It seems to work pretty well for me.
I've been getting heartburn pretty much my whole life. I had a endoscope done last year, which showed an ulcer on my oesaphugeal sphincter. They put me on parriet, which I was on for about 8 months. It worked really well, but I didn't want to take it forever. When I stopped parriet about a month ago I got a major rebound effect, which I managed by eating tonnes of gaviscon. Then last weekend my heartburn was the worst I'd ever had in my life so I am sure it was doing major damage. I thought I was going to have to go back on the parriet. Finally, I remembered that the low carb diet helped my heartburn a long time ago, so I gave it another shot. It is a vast improvement. I am still figuring some things out with it, but I would definitely give it a shot if you are currently managing with antacids and OTC drugs.
