I saw a commercial on TV that just set me off. The tagline was “Eat Your Way-Treat Your Way.” The product is used to treat ulcers of the stomach and intestines, acid reflux and esophageal problems.

The commercial had the nerve to have a cartoonish fireman propped up on the box intimating that this product can indeed put out the fire that one may feel after eating. No doubt that it can, but…

The reason why I am so angry about this commercial (and product) is because it is an invitation to eat any way you want and all you have to do is take this magic pill. This is exactly the mindset we need to run away from permanently.

Food is not the only thing to be considered with digestive upset. How you handle emotional imbalance in relation to the stressors in life play a huge part as well. When this is the case with that burning sensation, no little pill will make it go away. The only thing that will help is to do what Iyanla Vanzant suggests: Do your work!

I am terrified to give up my little purple pills. There is no way I can go back to feeling that fire I used to feel in my chest when I lay down.


My dear, I hear you. Who wants to feel that? The Chewable Digestive Enzyme DGL by Enzymatic Therapy puts out fire just as well. Just 4-5 chewables before eating, while eating, or after eating do the trick. AND … there are NO side effects nor contra-indications with medications. I have successfully gotten my mother off of the purple pills and she is permanently using DGL. What have you got to lose… try it.
