Warning: Acid Reflux Medications can cause acute Kidney Disease


There are a lot of things we do without thinking

I sent you a post about the health risks of soda a few weeks ago

Sodas are more dangerous than you realize

Here is another warning.
It is about the danger of something we do without thinking

I am talking about heartburn medications-acid reflux medications

These drugs known as Proton Pump Inhibitors can cause acute kidney disease
Here is where you can read about the report

These include such common heartburn drugs as:

  1. Prilosec
  2. Nexium
  3. Prevacid etc.

The ads for these medications are all over the place
But when this kind of warnings are issued, most people are NOT aware of them
So people keep on doing things as usual

But this is not the only risks of Proton Pump Inhibitors
Proton Pump Inhibitors also increase your risks of :

  1. Obesity
  2. High blood pressure
  3. Heart problems-according to this study

What is heartburn anyway?

Heartburn is a symptom of GERD [Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease]

Heartburn occurs when acid from the stomach "reflux" back into the esophagus, irritating it

Heartburn can be caused by some foods, medications-such as Aspirin, obesity, smoking etc.

Which suggests that GERD may be partly the result of unhealthy choices.
That would also suggest the cure is not a class of medications that can send you to an early grave

Part of the solution may be to make non-toxic lifestyle choices

The body's ideal ph should be 7.35, slightly alkaline

Get your body more on the alkaline side by eating more fruits and vegetables!
See, your mother was right, after all!

But whatever you do to alleviate your heartburn, make sure it is NOT a Proton Pump Inhibitor

Till next time..

This is Teejay saying..

Always, always make non-toxic choices!
