Addicted To Antacids, But You Don’t Know What Else To Do?

Acid Reflux Disease | Alternative to AntacidsYou?ve heard that antacids can be harmful to your health, but have you ever asked yourself why you thought you needed them in the first place? Like millions of others, you?ve been duped by misinformation that molded your opinion and discouraged you from honestly looking into the true cause of that nasty burning sensation in your throat. An effective treatment for acid reflux will treat the cause…not mask the symptoms.

Is it the white clinical looking lab coat, the Oscar nominated celebrities, the catchy little jingles or the candy like appearance and the easy access that persuaded you to do it? Perhaps you simply fell for the old ?Eat, Drink and be Merry? propaganda that has us all lining up to grab the next Over-The-Counter quick fix gimmick . . . in fact, more than $78 million worth of antacids were purchased in America during the holiday season of 2004.

So stop feeling guilty, you?re not alone on this one.

Apparently when Americans are under stress we eat a lot more food. Being a stressed out culture, we just automatically ?pop? billions of cherry, vanilla or cocoa flavored tummy-tranquilizers like innocent little after-dinner mints. But hey, it?s a painless purchase and that?s what you?re supposed to do, right?

Wrong. First of all, they are NOT a painless purchase, in the long-term. Secondly, for most of us it?s exactly what you do NOT want to do if you suffer from acid reflux. Follow me here and I will explain . . . truth is, every time you do it, you?re spelling I-N-T-E-N-S-I-F-I-C-A-T-I-O-N.

Relief is the word that an addict uses after a fix. Intensification is what happens after the short lived fix wears off, feeding a vicious cycle.

But you say your heartburn is caused from stomach acid, right?

Sorry, but it?s just not true. Would you believe the root causes of? acid reflux, GERD or heartburn is actually from the ?lack of stomach acid?? Well, so much for the multi-billion dollar acid-blocker industry.

Due to dietary, nutritional and/or aging factors more than 25 million Americans experience this problem. Recurring acid reflux, incorrectly referred to as a stomach acid disease, actually has more to do with the Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) and the inability to properly digest foods than anything else.

My big problem with acid reflux is constipation. My Gastroeanologist prescribed protonex for it. I traced back to when the constipation brgan—-it was about same time I began taking protonex—8 months ago…I am practically living on laxatives now and that doesn’t do much good most times. I thank you for giving me hope that MABEY I can get off laxatives and back to a non-protonex life……..
