From everything that I’ve seen, read, and heard we can’t take our doctor’s word anytime they prescribe something.I’m not saying you shouldn’t trust your doctor or that they are out to get you, all I’m saying that sometimes they are misinformed as well. Of course, there are some bad apples in the barrel, but that goes without saying. And to be clear, I am not a doctor or medical professional, this is a modest opinion from your average consumer.
Our healthcare system is upside down with inefficiencies and fairly damaged because of the for-profit model we use. This will always lend itself to corruption and greed.I trust Big Medical and Big Pharma as far as I can throw them.These days, instead of educating us and prescribing diet on exercise, physicians prescribe medication for Gastric Stomach Acid problem
Of these, we want to bring your attention to one called Omeprazole.
Some version of digestive disease affects tens of millions of people every year.I actually have some experience down this path where I was having Gastric gastric Acid problems and treated the problem with antacids, but even these only target symptoms and not the root cause/issue. They don’t fix anything.Again, this is where prescribing the right diet and probiotics would be more ideal because this is what would likely heal your insides.It’s common excepted “knowledge” that indigestion is usually caused by too much acid in the Gastric Stomach Acid, but we now know that it’s low Gastric Stomach Acid creating the problem.
And if this is the case with your issue, taking a Tums will only make things worse.
Not to mention, we can start to damage and kill off the good bacteria and intestinal flora in our belly by taking medications.
