By now you’ve all probably read or heard about the effects of antacids on our system. Sure they all temporarily reduce stomach acid and give us temporary relief, but over the long haul, this could cause big trouble for your gut. When you neutralize or turn off stomach acid, you dull the stomach’s anti-microbial defense system and increase your risk of food poisoning from C. difficile, Listeria, Salmonella and other bacteria. And without enough acid, your stomach won’t properly absorb nutrients like calcium, putting you at increased risk of bone fractures. Changing your acid balance also can interfere with absorption of other medications that you take regularly, and can mask more serious problems such as stomach and esophageal cancer.
We are bombarded on a daily basis with chemicals such as phthalates, BPA, chlorine, fluoride, radon, PFC’s, lead, pesticides, fertilizers, formaldehyde, pesticides, need I continue? This is a short list and our bodies need a break. The more natural things we do for our bodies the healthier we will become. This leads me to a new favorite Essential Oil Blend specifically formulated to naturally replace toxic antacids.
