Dangerous Advice For Gastritis (and Reflux)

Dangerous Advice For Gastritis (and Reflux)
I was recently asked a question that highlighted a dangerous (and
potentially deadly
) practice in the medical community (i.e. our doctors). 

A woman wrote to me, completely confused over what she had been told about gastritis, and didn't know where to turn.
The advice she was given is always dangerous and it can even be deadly.
See what Valerie writes:
Hi Sherry:
I read with great interest the story about Doug R. who no longer needed Nexium for gastritis.
I've been on Prilosec for gastritis for about 6 months. The doctor told me to pay no attention to what I read on the internet about how bad Prilosec is - in fact he also said I can stay on it indefinitely if I wish.
I had a gastroscopy and I was told there was no sign of inflammation yet I still have bloating and discomfort!
A naturopath reckons I have Leaky Gut Syndrome too.
How can probiotics help gastritis when the problem is in a different part of the system?
It's so confusing...
I'd love an answer. I don't know who to believe or which way to turn!
Thanks guys.
SB:  Valerie, for your benefit and that of all my readers, I will gladly answer all of your questions and most importantly, explain to you that Losec (Prilosec) is anything BUT safe to stay on indefinitely.
Read on.
The "safety" of Losec (Prilosec)
It's horrifying that Valerie's doctor told her to pay no attention to what she reads on the internet about Losec (aka Prilosec). Talk about wanting to make sure to have a patient for life by keeping her in the dark.
Here is some information about Prilosec that came from the FDA. (I wonder if that's reputable enough for the doc) Here also is some excerpts from the package insert for Losec, directly from the mouth of Astra Zeneca, its manufacturer:
"Prilosec is indicated for short-term treatment (4-8 weeks) of active benign gastric ulcer in adults."
"The efficacy of Prilosec used for longer than 8 weeks in these patients has not been established. In the rare instance of a patient not responding to 8 weeks of treatment, it may be helpful to give up to an additional 4 weeks of treatment."
"Controlled studies do not extend beyond 12 months."

I'll translate that for you:
Prilosec was designed to only be used for 3 months, tops. We can't guarantee its effectiveness or safety beyond that.
We have NO freaking clue what could happen to you if you're on it for more than a year -- good luck.

Don't forget the "bonuses" docs get for prescribing
You may find this disturbing or downright maddening, but many medical practices participate in "quality improvement" programs with pharmaceutical companies whereby the physicians' prescribing patterns are tracked and cash grants are awarded.
That means the participating docs that write lots of little white slips get BIG bonuses.
So...in those instances, there's a great incentive for prescribing a drug and telling the patient they must be on it for life.
This isn't my opinion or hearsay, by the way -- this information comes directly from many respected physicians who opt NOT to practice medicine that way.
This is our health care system at work, folks.

Let's look at the REAL scoop on Losec
Drugs like Prilosec, Prevacid, Zantac, Protonix, Pepcid and of course the purple pill, Nexium are all designed to "work" by stopping or reducing acid production in your stomach.
The makers contend that if your stomach can't produce as much acid, you have less acid reflux, heartburn, nausea, pain, etc.
Uh, not quite.
Doesn't work that way.
You see, what they're completely ignoring (on purpose) is the fact that your stomach NEEDS acid digestive juices for two very important reasons:
1- To break down your foods, specifically proteins
2- To kill dangerous bacteria and pathogens that you ingest

A little more detail:
1- To break down your foods, specifically proteins
This isn't my opinion -- it's a biological fact. And if it doesn't have the right amount of acid, your digestion comes to a screeching halt (more on that below).
Now, your stomach is smart. So when digestion slows or stops, it tries to get things moving again by secreting more acid.
But then it gets "shut down" by the drug and digestion stops again.
This cycle can go on for 8 hours or more!
And oh my, how you pay for it.
What you end up with is a poorly digested, rotting, stinking food mass (which causes gas, bloating and constipation) and LOTS of excess acid in your stomach...which, of course, can slide up into your throat and make you a fire-breathing dragon.
So in other words, your symptoms continue or even get WORSE -- not better.
That's why Valerie still has bloating and discomfort.
2- To kill dangerous bacteria and pathogens that you ingest
The hydrochloric acid in your stomach is a major line of defense against dangerous bacteria and even carcinogens (cancer-causing substances) that you ingest.
But without the acid...those toxins are allowed into your intestinal tract. From there they can get absorbed into your bloodstream, and heaven help you after that.

So tell me now...do you think it's SAFE to keep taking a pill INDEFINITELY that will shut down your stomach's acid production???

Why probiotics are effective AND safe
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection causes most cases of gastritis (as well as ulcers).
Studies have shown that the probiotic bacteria strains Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei and Bifidobacteria lactis slow the growth of bacteria such as H. pylori and sometimes even kill it.
Plus, probiotics populate the intestinal tract where they help digest your foods, fight off harmful pathogens and encourage regular, healthy bowel movements.
That means no more pain and bloating!
They also help make your gut wall stronger and less porous -- which means no more Leaky Gut Syndrome, and the dangerous substances that you ingest are confined to your intestines until they're passed with your feces, instead of leaking into your bloodstream.
And unlike chemical concoctions from the pharmaceutical companies, probiotics are SAFE and natural. They are simply a dose of the same friendly bacteria that naturally occur in your gut.  So you're helping your body by giving it a boost of the beneficial flora it NEEDS to have.

So Valerie (and everyone else like her), if you're ready to go the safe and natural route to fight ulcers, gastritis and other digestive problems (instead of being Big Pharma's next guinea pig), I've got just the thing for you...
Super Shield multi-strain probiotic formula.
Super Shield contains research-grade strains of B. lactis, L. acidophilus and L. casei -- the 3 strains that have been shown to be effective for H. pylori.
Without shutting off the acid in your stomach that you need!
Plus, Super Shield's 10 other medical-grade strains each have their own specialty in terms of the health benefits they provide.
Food is your antacid medicine too!
Food is by far THE most common cause of digestive issues--specifically eating meals that are next-to-impossible for your system to break down and instead create World War III in your gut.
If you ever want hopes of being free of GI problems (and staying away from digestive drugs) you MUST eat foods that digest well together.
When you do this, your foods are broken down like they should be, your stomach doesn't have to overproduce acid, and your intestines can "finish the job" like they're supposed to.
What that means is: No more feeling like a fire-breathing dragon and/or be willing to give your right arm just to have a BM.
The good news is that eating for great health and optimal digestion is simple and VERY tasty.
All it takes is following my advice in the Great Taste No Pain health system.
The Great Taste No Pain manuals spell out why it's so important to avoid certain meal combinations because they tax your stomach and intestines. It's logical, based on simple chemistry and will make perfect sense to you.
Then GTNP goes on to show you what GOOD meal combinations are, gives you suggestions for meal planning, and even gives you a dining out card to carry with you everywhere so all your meals will be pain-free!
Now, if you're gluten-challenged, don't worry--I've got you covered. Great Taste No Gluten is for you instead.

Don't spend one more minute thinking there are no other answers for you besides drugs.
When you take the safe and natural route, your body says thank you...
...and you feel a WHOLE lot better.

To your health,

PPS: Lolly's off Nexium and feeling great!
I received your wonderful Great Taste No Pain books as a gift from my daughter in law. It was my lucky day, but I didn't know it at the time.
I have been on Nexium off and on, (mostly on) for about 30 years. It worked OK but I would occasionally have bad experiences that would last for a few days and then go away.
Recently my prescription service said I would have to have my doctor redo my prescription and I couldn't get any more Nexium. I began over the counter drugs that didn't work. I was bloated, had terrible heartburn and a lot of other problems.
I had your books sitting there for two months, so I thought why not try them.
I did try your system and it's like a miracle! I am 65 and for the first time I feel absolutely wonderful. I feel like I have found the fountain of youth!
I eat and follow your rules--and have no heartburn, no pain, no upset whatsoever. I take your little cheat sheet with me everywhere.
It works, it simply works, no pain, just a normal life!
What is wrong with our doctors? Not one (and I have been to SEVERAL) even suggested anything other than take a pill!
Makes you wonder what else can be fixed this easily. Yes, your system is so easy once you realize what it tells you to do. I check with your books every day--they are my friends that help me live a normal life.
Thank you for sharing this--I even downloaded your books into my computer and i pad!
More people need to know this works! Thanks so much--you saved my life!
