heartburn

  1. Heartburn cures that are better than meds – and safer, too!

    Ditch heartburn drugs with THESE ‘old-fashioned’ cures

    One big plus to living out in the country like we do here in the Berkshires is that “old fashioned” isn’t tossed around like an insult.

    It’s a badge of honor!

    We’re a touch skeptical of anything “latest and greatest,” and that goes doubly so for new meds.

    And when we’ve found something that works for a condition like heartburn, we’re not afraid to stick to it—no matter how backward it might look to some big city doc.

    Listen to those hotshots and you’ll be on a med like ranitidine (aka Zantac) – and probably having a panic attack right now over news a cancer-linked chemical was found inside generic forms of the drug.

    You’d think the FDA would issue a recall; in a SANE world, that’s exactly what they’d do.

    But they didn’t!

    So while some manufacturers and retailers pulled it from stores voluntarily, it’s STILL widely available.

    And that means you and your loved ones could STILL be at risk.

    Since the feds obviously won’t step in to help, I want to set you up with not just one but TWO SAFE CURES that are much better than this ugly drug.

    Get REAL and LASTING heartburn relief… naturally!

    The drug was pulled because it was supposedly contaminated with a dangerous compound called N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA).

    But a new report finds the problem isn’t “contamination” …

    It’s the drug itself!

    Tests by the online pharmacy Valisure reveal that the drug molecule can break down to form the cancer-linked chemical in certain conditions, including high temperatures.

    The FDA claims it’s not an issue since it doesn’t happen at normal room temperature or even normal body temperature.

    But it IS an issue.

    Improper storage… being shipped in a hot truck… even being left in a car could expose the drug to high temperatures.

    And even with PERFECT storage, the drug could STILL form this cancer chemical.

    A second set of tests in conditions that mimic the human stomach found the drug can also break down into the chemical after being exposed to gastric juices.

    A single 150mg tablet can break down into 300,000 ng of NDMA.

    That’s 3,000 times the FDA’s “safe” limitand STILL no recall!

    Friends, it’s time to take matters into your own hands.

    Try my two time-tested remedies proven to end heartburn in a flash with NO risks:

    Apple Cider Vinegar: Mix one tablespoon into 4-6 oz of water and drink up after each meal; along with preventing heartburn it’ll also help control post-meal blood sugar spikes. Any brand will do, just stick to organics.

    Swedish Bitters: Take this blend of a dozen natural herbs before meals to help smooth digestion and block heartburn. There are a number of varieties out there; one good brand that’s easy to find is Nature Works. A big bottle will set you back about $40, but it should last at least three months.

  2. The peanut butter cups of bad meds

    For drug makers, it must have been a "you got your peanut butter in my chocolate" moment -- but instead of "two great tastes that taste great together," you're about to get two bad meds that are even worse together.

    The "peanut butter" in this case is the daily aspirin millions of heart patients are told to take -- and taken by millions of others in the mistaken belief it can prevent those heart problems from happening in the first place.

    The "chocolate" is omeprazole, aka Prilosec -- part of a badly overused class of heartburn meds called proton pump inhibitors.

    Now, I don't have a problem with someone eating a little fresh-ground peanut butter, or even an occasional snack of dark chocolate.

    But I have a big problem with people taking daily aspirin or proton pump inhibitors on a long-term basis -- because both of these drugs come with huge health risks and minimal... to no... benefits.

    Daily aspirin use isn't nearly as beneficial as years and years of relentless marketing would have you believe. What's more, it comes with a host of serious side effects such as bleeding problems, including ulcers, and even bleeding in the brain.

    One of the milder but more immediate side effects, however, is heartburn -- and that's why the new peanut butter cup of pills mixes 325 mg of aspirin with the PPI omeprazole.

    It's supposed to prevent that heartburn and make it easier for people to take the daily aspirin. And to that extent, you could say it "works" -- because PPIs are great at hiding the symptoms of heartburn and other stomach acid problems.

    But PPIs also bring stomach acid to dangerously low levels.

    In fact, the levels are so low that when you stop taking the drugs, the stomach tries to overcompensate and produces more acid than ever. Most people think it's their acid problem coming back with a vengeance.

    In reality, this "acid rebound," as it's called, is caused by the drug itself -- and a reason many people can't stop taking a PPI once they start.

    PPIs can also block the absorption of key nutrients, leaving you seriously deficient in calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, vitamin C, and other essentials and putting you at risk for everything from bone breaks to death.

    Pain, heartburn, and even cardiovascular health all have better and more natural answers. Work with your doctor to find them.

  3. Dangerous heartburn med leaves lingering effects

    If you're taking medication to relieve acid reflux, you might be getting something a whole lot worse in the bargain.
