I was diagnosed with GERD and as a result took Protonix for 12 years. It got to where it wasn't working and I was told to take 2 rather than 1 pill a day. My daughter in law had just bought a La Mancha goat and began milking. I thought...why not? I began to notice my stomach was less irritated when I drank the goat milk. I ended up weaning myself off the Protonix by drinking the fresh goat milk over a period of several months and have never gone back. I had previously tried to stop taking Protonix on several occasions, even with the help of my physician, and wasn't able. I cannot say enough about the fresh goat milk! It healed my gut!!
