The problem with antacid medications (part one)

Are you presently taking antacid or acid blocking medications? If so, you’re not alone because these drugs are some of the highest selling in medical history. Unfortunately, their long-term use can cause fatigue, Candida overgrowth, bloating, SIBO, constipation, depression, headaches and many other problems. They may even increase your risk of developing kidney problems, cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis. There is a dark side to acid blocking medications, which isn’t explained clearly enough by doctors. It is my hope that you feel more informed about the dangers of acid blockers by the end of this two part article. Acid blocking...

H Pylori Eradication Improves Gastric Atrophy

H Pylori Eradication Improves Gastric Atrophy Even In Elderly Patients With Severe Stomach Damage Long-term H pylori infection is known to cause a condition called atrophic gastritis, where the stomach lining is severely damaged and worn down by chronic inflammation. This condition is particularly prevalent in the older population. Atrophic gastritis, whether it is caused by H pylori or not, can cause significant nutritional deficiencies, especially of vitamin B12. Atrophic gastritis also increases the risk of stomach cancer. Furthermore, atrophic gastritis can be asymptomatic, that is people do not experience symptoms as a result of the condition. This is...

H Pylori & Gastritis

When my Mother died, aged only 60, her autopsy revealed severe gastritis and bleeding of the stomach and small intestine. She died as a result of septicaemia – an infection developed in her psoas muscle (in the hip, upper leg and lower back), burst and became systemic. It is fairly clear to me that the infectious organisms that caused the sepsis broke into her circulation through her damaged stomach and intestine. This is a serious topic. Gastritis simply means “inflammation of the stomach”. H pylori infection is the leading – but not the only – cause of gastritis. In...
