Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), also known as acid reflux or “heartburn,” is a digestive disorder that affects millions, many of whom have been hoodwinked into taking dangerous proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) and other gastric acid-inhibiting drugs that only make the problem worse, and cause other deadly side effects down the road.
“Studies have shown long-term PPI use may reduce the absorption of important nutrients, vitamins and minerals, including magnesium, calcium and vitamin B12,” says The New York Times.
Many people who take PPIs suffer from more chronic health problems than the average person, and never actually cure their acid reflux in the process. Without making the changes necessary to balance stomach acid, and restore a healthful digestive rhythm, those who take PPIs consistently, and for long periods of time, will progressively become less and less healthy.
