Which acid reflux remedies can get you off Nexium, Prevacid or Prilosec for heartburn acid reflux?
What can give acid reflux relief in 2 weeks, without any of these medications?
Fortunately studies have tested drug-free acid reflux remedies that work for most people. 1
Here is what researchers tested to find what works best as acid reflux cure:
This "relaxation" allows stomach acid to get into the esophagus.
The problem is that the lining of the stomach can handle the acid just fine. But the lining of the esophagus was not designed to withstand stomach acid. Therefore this acid will "burn" and damage the esophagus lining. This causes constant inflammation and heartburn.
So, researchers decided to test whether cutting out eating between meals would actually help for acid reflux relief without medications.
Here are the studies that may be of inspiration:
Researchers asked a group of 20 people to eat only two meals a day. In between, they agreed to only drink liquids such as juices, water, coffee or tea. They also agreed not to take any acid reflux medications during that time.
These people were all clinically shown to have GERD, with endoscopy testing.
You be the judge, whether a 2 week effort to follow this pilot study, is worth being able to quit Nexium, Prevacid or Prilosec toward your acid reflux cure.
Why does this diet work?
It can work for you too, because repeated refluxes cause inflammation. If you keep on eating, this inflammation does not get a chance to heal.
Here's dangerous nexium side effects which may help you decide:
The class of Nexium medication is called proton pump inhibitors, or PPI's.
The risks and long term side effects of Nexium list has been growing. Here is what is on the list:
Researchers have in fact determined that these PPI medications cause an increase in the blood, of ADMA, which in turn decreases nitric oxide levels.
Again, you ask yourself if it is worth a 2 week experiment to get drug-free acid reflux relief!
Hopefully, this research will give you the inspiration for trying simple acid reflux home remedies instead of side effects of Nexium, Prevacid or Prilosec.
Note: Nexium is the second most profitable drug ever sold in the world, making $6.3 billion per year. So expect their promo and advertising to paint a rosy picture! They are not going to encourage you to stop, and the law suits on kidney failure etc are easily paid for with that kind of profit.
Please review the side effects of Nexium, so that you can be assured that you will be healthier and happier without it, in the long run.
