Thanks for that info guys, not sure how i lost track of this thread.
The doctor I mentioned is a MD and ND , hence I guess his high fees. I have a EPO network and am waiting for the new year to switch to PPO to be able to get some reimbursement if I visit this doctor.
Basically, what I would like to know is what ND prescribe.
I've documented my situation here.
Basically, I went in with stomach pain last August, got prescribed PPI. I decided to wean myself off PPI and after a month completely off PPI I had severe heartburn, never had it in my life before, but had it for two days straight, zantac did not help at all, i was awake most night. Went to two GI, they said go on PPI again. Since April, I have been on Achiphex 2 X 20mg. I am going to start taking it daily instead for a month and then try again. I've always wanted to go to a ND, I especially want to go to the one i listed as he's a MD as well, so he knows both sides of the story, but is too expensive at this time.
But my question what do ND prescribe? I keep reading they give probiotics or digestive enzymes, are those the same thing? Is there a product I can buy from a store that they prescribe to see if that helps me wean off PPI.
