Almost everyone suffers from heartburn (Acid Reflux) from time to time. Especially in times of stress or difficult situations, including the problems caused by the corona crisis.
If you suffer from heartburn once in a while, it can’t do any harm. But if you have regular heartburn, it can cause inflammation of your esophagus.
And when this becomes chronic it can cause you to develop esophageal cancer, which is often fatal because it is usually not discovered until long after there are metastases.
When your stomach contents (and the acid) can flow back into your esophagus we call it Acid Reflux, or Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).
Acid Reflux is not only painful and annoying, it can actually be life-threatening in the long run.
Hundreds of thousands of people suffer from Acid Reflux
Remarkably, the number of people suffering from Acid Reflux complaints has skyrocketed since the 1960s. Big Pharma immediately responded by coming up with medications that only work temporarily.
Of course, this doesn’t solve the problem but it suppresses the acidity of your gastric juice for a while. Then the pain is temporarily less or even gone.
The reason Big Pharma mainly offers temporary working solutions is that it makes you a repeat customer. So there are millions of victims worldwide who have been on antacids, such as Omeprazole, for decades.
Omeprazole alone goes over the counter of pharmacists millions of times a year, and the total antacid industry earns Big Pharma hundreds of millions of dollars a year.
Doctors often receive interesting commissions from the drug makers when they prescribe certain drugs. As a result, many doctors will easily offer you the “temporary” solution in the form of certain medications, which (unfortunately) often also have an addictive effect.
According to researcher Dr. R. Laheij, from the University Medical Center St. Radboud in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, the addictive effect of antacids occurs because stomach acid production goes haywire as soon as you stop taking the medication.
Although in principle medication should be a temporary solution, many doctors tell their patients with Acid Reflux complaints that they must keep taking it for the rest of their lives. This is very lucrative for the doctor, but not for you. The risks for the patient are usually not mentioned!
Dangers of Omeprazole
Did you know that by using this kind of antacid your digestion gets completely confused? And that this has many other negative side effects?
One little-mentioned side effect is that antacids can make you overweight. With antacids, your amount of stomach acid decreases, you basically neutralize it. With proton pump inhibitors, like Omeprazole or Nexium (Esomeprazole), less stomach acid is produced. This allows your digestive system to extract much fewer nutrients from your food.
Food is fermented as a result, rather than digested. This is basically a controlled rotting process in your intestines.
This then leads to a form of “malnutrition” which puts your metabolism into survival mode. Your body does this, to compensate for the lack of real nutrients, minerals, and vitamins.
Your body, in this case, starts to create and retain body fat. In addition, antacids, the most commonly used medication, can increase the risk of pneumonia, kidney damage, and bone fractures. (https://www.drugwatch.com/proton-pump-inhibitors/nexium/)
For the elderly and people with chronic conditions, this can be life-threatening.
Long-term use of Omeprazole (and Nexium as well, as other PPIs) has also been linked to a doubled risk of dementia.
Baking Soda (a.k.a Bicarb Soda, or Sodium Bicarbonate)
Besides medication from Big Pharma, there are also many people who resort to baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) when they suffer from heartburn.
Please note that Baking Powder is NOT the same as Baking Soda. Baking Powder contains more ingredients. I’m talking about pure Baking Soda.
In itself, Baking Soda is a useful short-term tool. Baking soda neutralizes the stomach acid almost immediately, reducing and often eliminating the symptoms. But… that is, just like other medication, a form of symptom control!
You need stomach acid to digest food and absorb nutrients. When you neutralize your stomach acid, your stomach can’t do what it needs to do.
If you use baking soda every day, you will no longer be able to absorb essential nutrients. Baking soda is not a long-term solution to get rid of Acid Reflux or medication!
Cure for Acid Reflux
What doctors usually don’t tell you is that you can simply cure Acid Reflux!
But that doesn’t make Big Pharma and the doctors any more money, so they would rather make you take their medicine than help you get rid of your problem.
Multiliminal, however, has developed a treatment method that is quick and easy, where you actually heal from Acid Reflux from the inside out.
After this treatment, you will be rid of it for good and get off the medication. We have set up a separate website for this purpose:
