Heartburn or GERD can Kill

Heartburn is a common annoyance. The busy lifestyle, quick meals, fatty or spicy foods all contribute to the occasional need of a chewable pain reliever. The acceptance of heartburn as an inconvenient, but natural, part of the daily grind can blind you to the warning that a severe heartburn symptom can bring.

Heartburn as a Disorder

Heartburn can be a symptom as well as a disorder. Simple heartburn or GERD can be controlled and dealt with. However, heartburn can signal the presence of a much more serious problem. If it’s heartburn, you will have a burning sensation in the chest usually after eating. There may be a spread of the burning to the throat, sometimes accompanied by a bad taste, difficulty in swallowing, belching, coughing, hoarseness and/or wheezing.

It can become worse by lying down or bending over or by eating. Relief can come from an antacid. While the more severe heartburn symptoms may be mistaken for a heart attack, simple heartburn is usually not made worse by exercise. If there is any concern that the pain may signal a heart attack, get help quickly.

Getting More From a Cellulite Cream Review

By Patricia Hammond

Cellulite creams are now growing in popularity as an accepted means to treat cellulite. Not all creams however are as effective as they are advertised to be. If you want to find the best cellulite cream for you, you should take a closer look at every cellulite cream review.


Testimonials and endorsements can tell you a lot. We are all aware however that in the world of advertising, testimonial fabrication is a common occurrence. In the online world, it is quite common for a product reseller to pay a blogger to write a cellulite cream review even if the individual has had no direct experience with the product.

To get a general idea of what the product can do, it is still good to read these reviews. It is always best however to look for health organizations with websites that can provide more objective reviews and even product ranking. A lot of sites will not risk just getting on the wrong side of a product manufacturer and will only provide low ranks to products that are not very effective.


Look for details about product ingredients and scientific explanations about how each ingredient works in your cellulite cream review. You should be able to judge a product better with scientific explanations. A better cellulite cream review will provide you with links to sites that will offer you additional data on the scientific basis of its claims. In the absence of such links however, you should check on the truth of scientific claims by researching on the ingredients yourself.

Money Back Guarantee

Though there are some effective products that don't offer a money-back guarantee, it is still to your advantage if you choose one with such offer. This means that the manufacturers are making it known through a cellulite cream review that they are standing by the effectiveness of their products and are even willing to bet on their income just to prove that they have a good product.

Check on forums that have a bearing on cellulite and check how many people are actually getting their money back. A tremendous rate of product returns may be a sign that the product may not be very effective at all.


Any product would never admit to being inferior than other products. A good cellulite cream review however will not show you bloated claims such as immediate and total cellulite elimination. Products that can be trusted are those that will honestly give the limitations of their products in a review. It is better to buy and use a product that only claims to reduce cellulite rather than a product that claims to provide miraculous results.


Trust only cellulite cream reviews that give you the product's side effects if there are any. Manufacturers will also only claim that their product has no side effects if they are truly sure that they can stand by the claim. As an extra precaution however, it is always better to test a product first before using it extensively on your body.

More than anything, you should discontinue the use of a product as soon as you notice something funny or experience some discomfort. You can help product reviewers and potential users by spreading the word about your positive or negative experiences in using a product.
