It isn't, just get a acid/alkaline food chart and work off that, it takes more of a strong will than anything else, I have an Hiteus hernia too so I get more acid if I eat the wrong foods up my oesophagus (spelling!).
You are just eating clean, made no difference to my lips I dont think, i think leaving them alone not forcing a peel is the best way, but a good diet can't do any harm.
By the way sounds like someone is just trying to sell somthing to me, I wonder how much this 'wonder' herb cost??????
