The only thoughts I have regarding huge Pharma, insurance companies, politicians, government and the medical field of today are:
their bottom lines & major concerns are for HUGE Profits, HUGE CEO salaries, benefits, stock options. The patient, consumers and drug affordability are not put first. That is my personal experience and my opinion. Government and greed does nothing to make brand name & generic drugs affordable to those on fixed/Soc.Sec. only, incomes. So sad in this country!
Great info to help others wean off PPIs. I have taken Nexium for many years, but have decided to transition to natural remedies. Thanks to you, I now have the info to succeed, with the least side effects. Kudos…
I didn’t find this article helpful at all. Tagamet wasn’t enough to keep down the acid. I know it is only 2 dollars but it is totally useless
Very helpful. I find that chewing a piece of lemon rind before and after meals helps a great deal. Also, a 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda relieves quickly and apple cider vinegar in water is helpful. Dr. Low Dog has recommended 6 mg. of Melatonin at night for a couple of months and I also found that helpful. Much better to use natural remedies than the drugs…. I became totally depended on them.
I do use a good digestive enzyme as well.
This article was very informative! I will print it to show mine and my mother’s doctors. We are both taking PPIs for a long time now. Scary what goes on with drug companies and medical people. Thanks for the needed info.!
