Indigestion? Don't take pharmaceutical drugs!

Beware, anyone taking acid reflux and heartburn drugs, and thinking they are safe. They may be popular. You may not have been told they can be dangerous. But even the FDA (the US Food and Drugs Administration - the body supposed to protect us from dangerous medical drugs) now admits that they are more dangerous than we have been told.

"Detailed View: Safety Labelling Changes Approved By FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) – May 2011" FDA,

The drugs are otherwise known as 'proton pump inhibitors' - yes, another 'inhibitor' that seeks to change the way our body functions, and therefore, causes such harm. They may cause some relief; but at what cost? The Health Sciences Institute gives two reasons why they are dangerous.

     1. Contrary to what you have been led to believe, stomach acids are not there just to make your life miserable - they are responsible for digesting food.

     2. Stomach acids perform other important tasks, such as protecting your stomach from C-Diff (Clostridium Difficile), a bacterium that can trigger severe digestive inflammation and diarrhoea.

The HSI newsletter goes on to explain that the drugs can cause hypo-magnesia; and state that the FDA is refusing to recognise it. Magnesium deficiency can, of course, ultimately lead to Osteoporosis, and other bone disease.

So, as they say, stomach acid is our friend, not our enemy. And yet Big Pharma wages a drug war against it. The 'war' against on part of our bodily functions causes damage to another part. But then, of course, there are more profitable drugs to wage war on this - causing problems elsewhere.

Pharmaceutical drugs cause disease, not 'side-effects', or 'adverse reaction' - but disease. So for temporary relief from indigestion, we may end up getting osteoporosis.

Conventional Medicine is never a good deal!
