About Us

Heartburn-help.com started in 1999 as a gathering place for information and links pertaining to Heartburn and Gastro Esophageal Reflux. A forum was added as well as several dedicated forums with west coast gastro esophageal surgeons answering members questions.

In 2000 we met Macit Gurol, who is the Chief Scientific Officer and founder of Tamer Laboratories in Seattle, WA. Macit Gurol is the inventor of the platform technology controlled pH Sciences. pH Sciences manufactures Coffee Tamer and CalciBlend granules for Heartburn-help LLC.

Heartburn-help began selling the Coffee Tamer online in 2001 with Mr. Gurol’s original intent to reduce the acidity in foods and beverages without damaging the flavor. While continuing to make the Coffee Tamer available, in 2009 Heartburn-help LLC introduced CalciBlend for introduction to General Practitioners, Gastroenterologist, Urologists, Dentists and the general public.

Coffee Tamer and CalciBlend are manufactured for Heartburn-help LLC by pH Sciences, the holder of Mr. Gurol’s patents.

I have been using your products for the past 12 years. I started with Tamer and now CalciBlend.

I know without them, I could NOT function. I have Interstitial Cystitis and Reflux. I was not able to eat anything acidic before discovering your products. This left my health in a sad state, due to a very restricted diet. Your products have saved me. I am able to eat and enjoy foods without the extreme pain I would experience due to acid levels my body could not tolerate.

Forever Grateful,

Lori in Florida
