Acid Reflux…From Cradle to Grave? Now That’s A Tough Pill To Swallow!

acid reflux“Plop, plop, fizz, fizz oh what a relief it is.”   Many of us remember that catchy jingle from the Alka-Seltzer commercials of the 1960’s – but it doesn’t seem so cute when our BABIES are born with acid reflux these days!

Billions of dollars are spent on antacids each year.   In fact, Nexium is the third biggest seller in the world with annual sales exceeding $5 billion.  Priolsec is the #1 selling drug in the world making over $6 billion dollars a year.  But antacids do not fix the root cause of the problem and the side effects are costing you BIG TIME.

I think its fascinating that just when we gave “heartburn” a new and much more serious-sounding label (“acid reflux”) we just happen to have a billion dollar pharmaceutical solution for this condition that is striking our society from cradle to grave.

It doesn’t even seem possible that our newborns are commonly diagnosed with having acid reflux!    Just imagine your reaction if the pediatrician told you that your newborn was suffering from heartburn…that wouldn’t be so easy to digest (pun intended).  Heartburn used to be a problem mostly for senior citizens…today it begins at birth…a sign that the body is in acid overload!

It’s rarely a good idea to throw pills at a problem!  Pills don’t cure the condition…they merely mask your symptoms…and they often come with side effects that makes things MUCH worse in the long run.   Sometimes taking a pill is just the lazy way out.  Instead of making sacrifices for good health, it’s a whole lot easier to just take a pill and forget about the real problem.  That’s definitely not a good idea when it comes to acid reflux!

HERE’S WHAT THE EXPERTS HAVE TO SAY!

Neurologist Dr. Daniel Purlmutter:  “Antacids block B6. Many people are taking antacid medications and the problem is that when they block stomach acid, they block absorption of B6 and that can damage the brain.”

Dr. Sherry Rogers saw many complications with her patients who took Mylanta. “Quite simply, as Mylanta sops up acid that prompts indigestion, it also depletes the same acid we need for absorbing minerals. Without a sufficient quantity of minerals we are vulnerable to many diseases, from depression to cancer.” 

Dr. Yu-Xiao Yang:  MDA study of 145,000 seniors showed heartburn drugs can increase risks of broken hips. These drugs block absorption of calcium, leading to weaker bones and fractures , The drugs causing the most problems in this study were Nexium, Prevacid and Prilosec.

Dr. Mercola:  “(Tagamet or Pepcid) are some of the worst drugs that you could possibly take. They significantly reduce the amount of acid you have, inhibiting your ability to properly digest food. Reduction of acid in the stomach also diminishes your primary defense mechanism for food-borne infections and will increase your risk of food poisoning… people are being prescribed drugs for heartburn when it is one of the easiest medical problems to treat.” 

Dr. Gasdorph/Dr. Walker – Chronic use of aluminum containing antacid products may be detrimental to the body. “Research has shown that at least 10 human neurological conditions have been linked to toxic concentrations of aluminum” 

Acid reflux meds were not intended for long-term use.  Even the over-the-counter “harmless” options come with a warning label and a reminder that they are for SHORT TERM relief and NOT continued use.  Instead of relying on pills that do MORE HARM than good, consider changing your lifestyle instead.

Stay away from acidic foods, and acidic drinks (including bottled water).

Stop inhibiting the body’s natural digestive system by medicating for something that can be easily managed.

Trade your “Alka-Seltzer” potion for ALKALIZED water.  Your body will thank you for it and the pharmaceutical companies will have plenty of other rabbits victims to chase.

“Worst Endocrine Disruptors Revealed AND They Could Be Raising Your Family’s Cancer Risk”

danger

Here are a few of the highlights:

  • A number of common chemicals in your home and environment are known as endocrine disruptors, many of which are found in plastic products
  • Endocrine-disrupting chemicals are similar in structure to natural sex hormones such as estrogen, thereby interfering with their normal functions. Children are at greatest risk for adverse effects
  • 12 worst endocrine disruptors are: BPA, dioxin, Atrazine, phthalates, perchlorate, fire retardants, lead, mercury, arsenic, PFC’s, organophosphate pesticides, and glycol ethers
  • The connection between endocrine disrupting chemicals and cancer is of particular concern. Children who are exposed to these chemicals from a young age may be predisposed to cancer at increasingly earlier ages
  • A recent report co-produced by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Environment Program suggests a ban on endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) may actually be needed to protect the health of future generations

Top 3 Action Items to Protect Our Children

1.  GET RID OF PLASTIC!!!  All of it.  Most of what you have access to DOES CONTAIN BPA and there isn’t a plastic on the planet that isn’t harmful to  human life.

2.  While you’re eliminating plastics you’ll need to make decisions about THE MOST IMPORTANT component to health and LIFE…WATER!   By changing your water you CAN profoundly change your health.  In addition to going GREEN, you’ll stop contributing to the pollution of the planet and the poisoning of your children and your grandchildren.  Garbage in/Garbage out applies to toxins too.  Everything you’re exposed to is passed on for generations to come.  You can’t begin to detox of the harmful chemicals until you STOP being exposed to them and start “flushing’ them out with lots of HEALTHY water.  Bottled water is OUT.  Municipal tap water is OUT.  My family is leading by example – we use a commercial grade/medical grade ionizer to produce our own healthy, chemical free water at home and we REFUSE to use plastics.  No need for us to travel to Lourdes, France to get healing water!  It’s right in our kitchen!

3.  AVOID CHEMICALS AT ALL COSTS!  Many of the products that you use around your home and for personal hygiene are highly toxic.  For instance, dryer sheets contain very high levels of MERCURY.   Who knew? They may smell good BUT by wearing clothes laced with mercury your children are exposed to mercury 24/7.  Don’t look now but there are a whole lot of people protesting the use of vaccines due to the  risk of  mercury exposure – all the while they refuse to give up the convenience (and good smell) of dryer sheets.  Go figure.

There are healthy cleaning and hygiene products that won’t break the bank.  If you understand the science behind what makes these products effective (the pH level of the product itself) then you’ll be able to make healthy GREEN changes!   By modifying the pH of your water source you can replace MOST products.  Blue is the new green IF you have access to a commercial grade/medical grade water ionizer.

Children are at greatest risk and they deserve better than what we’re giving them.   By exposing our children day after day, year after year to harmful toxins, we are willingly jeopardizing their health.  Our need for convenience is costing our children life and health.   Making changes truly is a matter of life and death!  I believe our children are worth every sacrifice.  What about you?

Mercola Says “Bottle it”—Scientific Proof That Gratitude=Better Health and Longer Life!

If most people understood the health benefits that go along with having a spirit of gratitude they might work harder on attitude adjustments.  Looking at the glass as being half empty versus half half full has serious health consequences.

Happy Thanksgiving today and every day!

It’s good for your health!

Dr. Mercola Helps Add Insight to Differences in Water

disossiationDr. Gerald Pollack, author of The Fourth Phase of Water…Beyond Solid, Liquid and Vapor was interviewed by Mercola in a segment  that was entitled “What You Don’t Know About Water and Really Should”.  Here is Dr. Pollack’s bio along with highlights of the interview pertaining to “living water” (e.g., Kangen Water).

Dr. Gerald Pollack

Professor Gerald Pollack is Founding Editor-in-Chief of the scientific journal, WATER and is recognized as an international leader in science and engineering.

The University of Washington Faculty chose Pollack, in 2008, to receive their highest annual distinction: the Faculty Lecturer Award. He was the 2012 recipient of the coveted Prigogine Medal for thermodynamics of dissipative systems. He has received an honorary doctorate from Ural State University in Ekaterinburg, Russia, and was more recently named an Honorary Professor of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and Foreign Member of the Srpska Academy. Pollack is a Founding Fellow of the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering and a Fellow of both the American Heart Association and the Biomedical Engineering Society. He recently received an NIH Director’s Transformative R01 Award for his work on water, and maintains an active laboratory in Seattle.

Pollack’s interests have ranged broadly, from biological motion and cell biology to the interaction of biological surfaces with aqueous solutions. His 1990 book, Muscles and Molecules: Uncovering the Principles of Biological Motion, won an “Excellence Award” from the Society for Technical Communication; two subsequent books: Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life, and The Fourth Phase of Water, both won that Society’s “Distinguished Award.”

Pollack is recognized worldwide as a dynamic speaker and a scientist willing to challenge any long-held dogma that does not fit the facts.

“Your body consists of over 99 percent water molecules, but the water in your cells is not regular water, but highly structured water with special properties

There is a fourth phase of water, not H2O but H3O2, and can be called living water. It’s more viscous, dense, and alkaline than regular water; has a negative charge, and can hold energy, much like a battery, and deliver energy too”. 

It’s about time that proper scientific attention (in the U.S.) be given to the properties of “living water!    Those of you who believe that those of us  promoting “living water” are delusional…it’s YOU who are missing the boat.   No matter how much juicing you do…no matter how many alkaline foods you eat…no matter what supplement-of-the-month you’re taking…no matter how long you earth or how much you exercise,  nothing, absolutely nothing,  replaces the body’s need for LOTS of water…LIVING WATER.   

Water is no more “just water” than air is “just air” or food is “just food”. Wake up skeptics!  I hate to see you out there on that island by yourself!
