Acid Reflux Remedies Do More Harm Than Good

Did you know that antacids can cause ulcers, chronic inflammation, leaky gut, food allergies, anemia, inflammatory bowel digestive_issuesdisease and more. Your stomach is a very acid environment with a pH at 2 or less – same as a car battery (7 is neutral.) This acid helps to destroy bacteria, yeasts, and parasites. It helps you to absorb Vitamin B12 and minerals that allow you to release hormones from the pancreas, without which can lead to development of diabetes and breakdown protein. When undigested proteins get to the intestines, inflammation begins leading to leaky gut syndrome, chronic allergies, chronic constipation and/or diarrhea and inflammatory bowel disease.

The medical answer is not to treat the cause but treat the symptom by trying to kill the bacteria with things like Pepto Bismol and antibiotics. Acid blockers by definition make your stomach less acidic. So, this begs the question why would anyone take antacids? Billions of dollars are made by pharmaceutical companies each year, so that answer is clear. It is also worth noting that women suffer more then men.

There are many natural things you can do to as acid reflux remedies to bring back your system’s proper pH. You can take natural remedies, like Zypan from Standard Process and actively combine certain foods to help reduce the stress to your stomach. Both strategies should be monitored by a licensed nutritionist to ensure safety.
