I have struggled with heartburn and constipation for the past 10 years. For a long time I just tried to self remedy the problem and spent countless nights suffering not being able to sleep. When I met with Dr. Garcia he did an excellent job of explaining the issues I'm dealing with, and showing me using an interactive board in his office. His advice has been life changing. There are no magic pills to fix these issues, just some common sense self-care practices. I;m so thankful
