The Dangers of Antacid Abuse
Of all the over-the-counter medications available, one of the most popular groups is the antacid. These come in chewable tablets, capsules and liquids. They come in a variety of flavors and strengths. Many of the previously prescription strength antacids are now available over-the-counter as well. These medications are used by millions of people on a regular basis to relieve indigestion, gas, bloating, heartburn, and acid reflux. Unfortunately, the vast majority of those using these products don’t need them at all. Most people suffering from indigestion, gas, bloating, heartburn, and acid reflux do not, in fact, have excess stomach acid as is often portrayed, but rather the opposite and their symptoms are being caused by a lack of stomach acid instead.
Digestion In The Stomach
While digestion actually begins in the mouth with an enzyme found in the saliva, the majority of digestion begins in the stomach. Proteins and minerals from foods must have the natural digestive aid of betaine hydrochloride or hydrochloric acid. This powerful acid, secreted through the stomach wall, starts the breakdown of protein and begins to work on acidifying minerals such as calcium, for better absorption. This is the single biggest factor in natural heartburn relief.
Natural Digestive Enzymes
Enzyme products have been available for many years as an aid to better digestion. With the advent and intense marketing of antacids by various drug companies, many people are no longer aware of the natural digestive enzymes for acid reflux and heartburn. The natural digestive aids come in two basic formulations, one being whole enzymes and the second being what is referred to as enzyme precursor agents, the raw materials needed by the body to manufacture whole enzymes on its own. We prefer the later as the long-term use of whole enzyme products, except under certain specific conditions, and can cause a dependency upon them. Our goal should be to create an environment wherein the body can manufacture natural digestive enzymes on its own. In order to do this, we must first re-establish the natural acid levels of the stomach.
What should I do next?
In order to support your digestive system naturally, you need to find a natural digestive supplement that can provide all the supportive factors for the digestion of protein, carbohydrate, and fats. By so doing you can quickly improve your digestion and eliminate the classic symptoms of digestive disturbances. A well-balanced digestive support formula would include betaine hydrochloride, pancreatin, pepsin, lipase, and ox bile extract. It may also include supportive herbal extracts such as licorice, chamomile, and perhaps whole papaya, which provides papain, another protein digestive enzyme. The formula we use with our clients at our Centers around the world includes these factors in one convenient formula, which should be taken with every meal. Natural digestive help is available and is very effective. By taking these steps to improve your own natural digestive processes, you could be rewarded with increased benefits at many levels.
