Stress reduction, a balanced diet, Aloe and probiotics helped set me free from acid blocking medications and allowed me to eat again without fear.
I was on my way to the Emergency Room (ER) after vomiting for 24 plus hours. It was the best 100 dollar co-pay I ever spent. An IV helped stabilize me and get fluids back into me. Stress, bad diet, poor digestion and stomach irritation had reared its ugly head my life.
My doctor told me I would be on prilosec or other acid blockers like nexium, zantac or omeprazole for the rest of my life and I should be thankful the medicine was there for me.
Fundamentally I felt wrong about taking a pill that blocked something my body was doing. I met with a naturopathic doctor and a nutritionist and they told me that acid blockers have links to hip fractures and stomach cancer.
I decided it was time to change after following my original MD’s advice for a year. Acid blockers aren’t something you can just quit cold turkey. It took over a month to reduce the dosage while watching what I ate and healing my stomach with Aloe and good bacteria (probiotic and enzymes).
Years of stress and acid forming foods can have the same effect on most peoples digestion and Doctors prescribing pills isn’t the only answer.
My digestion is now stable.
An alkaline diet is part of the secret. Aloe is a natural alkalizer that I didn’t know existed. I searched web sites and read books looking for answers on reducing acid and increasing alkaline foods.
Drinking aloe as a food source is such a simple solution that I continued to overlook until I found Forever Living Products Aloe Vera Gel. Acid diets age you faster and the typical American diet is mostly acid forming foods. Adding the Aloe Vera Gel is one simple way to reduce the acid and gain countless benefits including help with healthy hair, weight management, overall health, skin care, Gerd, acid indigestion, heartburn, Colitis, acne, eczema and psorasis.
Reducing stress is also a key. Watching how involved I get in situations that I can’t control, like politics and news. Stress and worry aren’t your friends. Find your happy place and nurture yourself. Try to focus on things you can control.
Aloe – research this miracle plant and you will be glad you did. Drinking Aloe was new to me. This is truly a gift and healthy cultures have been doing it since the times of the bible. Naturally
