Acid stopping drugs lead to a false sense of security. Your symptoms of heartburn and GERD are gone, but what price are you going to pay down the road?
Did you know if you don’t have acid in your stomach you can’t kill bacteria and parasites commonly found in your food? Or if your stomach acid content is low you can’t absorb minerals like calcium or magnesium? Or you need both acid and enzyme activity to digest the food you eat?
If your food travels undigested into your small intestine it leads to further problems like Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Colitis. It also leads to a condition known as Leaky Gut Syndrome, which makes you gain weight and generally feel like crap!
The longer you have been on these drugs the harder it is to get off. This is because your stomach lining has disintegrated because of the lack of acid. Your stomach lining is designed to be the barrier between your stomach acid and the smooth muscle of your stomach. When you don’t have any acid your lining erodes away. So the longer you’ve been on your antacid s, the more damage you’ve done to your stomach lining.
We have a protocol that can help your stomach lining repair itself and improve your digestion and get you off of your antacids!
Sincerely, Dr. B
