For over twenty five years the doctors of today have said I need to be taking acid drugs like Prevacid. I started taking tagamet years ago then changing as time went by. Thing is I never got better, only worse. Then one day last fall I came upon a remedy from an old native friend of mine and decided to try it. Well low and behold I got better and I am now not on any medicine or should say prescription drugs at all. I did have some withdrawals going off the prevacid but in time that stopped too. I was determined to stay off them and today no more acid, aches and pains, nothing. I know now if I would have stayed on the med I probably might not be here in another few years, as to many things were beginning to happen to me. Strange how some medicine of today can actually make a fellow or gal worse. One has to get to know their body, then do the research and correct the problems, for most parts anyways. Today this article is out in the news, take a look.
Prilosec, Nexium, Prevacid, Aciphex. These and a dozen more drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) have quickly become superstars of Big Pharma. As recently reported by US News and World Report, last year people worldwide shelled out some $ 25.6 billion for these drugs that are supposed to alleviate heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Although hailed by most doctors as safe, reports have started cropping up that side effects may include everything from dizziness to osteoporosis, increased risk of heart attacks, pneumonia, and lots more.
Within two weeks after withdrawal from treatment, they experience even worse heartburn, regurgitation and other GERD symptoms than ever — so they have to go right back on the expensive PPI drug therapy.
Thing is there is ways of staying off it and correcting the problem with acid coming back naturally and one should be looking into them even before they stop taking the PPIs. For myself I could never be happier that I got off them and able to stay off them. It’s been 8 months now and no relapse at all. After twenty some years too, amazing. Well thought I would share with you folks as I know what it’s like to have this problem and one shouldn’t have to suffer this way. My Opinion Only
