Relief with a price – and it’s not just money, my friend.
When you turn to meds for acid reflux, you could pay later on with one of the worst infections of your life.
It’s one that could even kill you as new research zeroes in on a shocking risk linked to the wildly popular proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) that millions of Americans use via both prescription and over-the-counter formulas.
It’s a risk the mainstream has tried to deny and even ignore.
But they can’t anymore.
Because now, we have the evidence – proof these drugs can expose you to some dangerous and even deadly bacteria.
That includes the kinds of bugs that aren’t just difficult to beat; they’re at times IMPOSSIBLE to treat.
So today, I’m going to let you in on another way,,.
You’ll see the exact advice I give my own patients – and you won’t even have to make an appointment to see me at my clinic in Western Massachusetts to get it!
The TRUE toll of reflux drugs
Docs have seen it in the test results.
I’ve seen it in my own patients’ test results.
Taking PPIs leads to all kinds of weird changes in gut bacteria. Even if they don’t make you sick – right away – you end up building up a huge stash of germs you want nothing to do with.
And some of them are downright menacing.
The new analysis of 21 studies finds folks who take the meds have a 75 percent higher risk of bacteria resistant to multiple drugs.
And a secondary analysis of 26 studies finds a 70 percent higher risk.
These are germs that play the long game; you can HAVE them… RIGHT NOW… and NOT be sick while they slowly grow inside you, increasing their population.
Then, when they spot a weak moment – a chink in your immune armor such as a period of stress, illness or after you’ve taken an antibiotic – they can strike.
This is PRECISELY why a study earlier this year found PPIs increase the risk of the nastiest stomach infections – aka “stomach flu” and “food poisoning” – by a whopping 81 percent overall, and MORE THAN DOUBLE in seniors.
They can also set the stage for deadly infections such as Clostridium difficile as well as bacterial gastroenteritis and kidney disease.
All for a drug that even mainstream studies show may be unnecessary more than two-thirds of the time!
I have a simpler recommendation that can soothe your acid reflux — without leaving behind deadly germs…
It’s a form of licorice root called DGL (short for deglycyrrhizinated licorice, if you’re looking for a tongue twister). It’s terrific on its own; many people find it’s all they need.
But if you have a tougher case, look for a formula that combines it with glutamine and aloe. I like a blend called Glutagenics, which has all three and can also help with bloating, cramps, gas, and leaky gut syndrome.
You can find it in stores and online.
