Despite the name, heartburn has nothing to do with the heart, besides having symptoms that, when severe, tend to resemble a heart attack. The typical burning sensation in the chest and esophagus are caused by irritation from stomach acid that's being slightly regurgitated. There is a direct correlation between highly acidic foods and people's stomach's inability to sufficiently process the acid. Since most Americans would rather die a slow, miserable death than change what they eat regularly, Big Pharma has come up with some popular "solutions"–ones that quell the burning sensation of acid reflux while preventing the kidneys from filtering toxins properly. While life-threatening waste materials accumulate in their body, they continue consuming their favorite fried foods, processed baked goods, brownies, cookies, soda, alcohol, spicy foods, dairy, and of course, meat. In fact, meat is one of the hardest foods for the stomach to digest. http://www.globalhealingcenter.com/natural-health/foods-that-cause-acid-reflux/
To these binge-eating folk's dismay, a new study shows alarming news of up to a 50% increased risk of kidney complications (including chronic kidney disease and acute renal failure) for people who take heartburn medications regularly, including Nexium, Prilosec, and Prevacid.
The new study, published in <i>The Journal of the American Medical Association</i> (JAMA) found the most commonly used heartburn meds can damage arteries and lead to an increased risk of kidney failure, heart attack, and even dementia. In other words, that heartburn you thought was a heart attack, after taking your medications as recommended by your MD, can actually turn into a real heart attack. Go figure. https://www.drugwatch.com/2016/06/03/prilosec-nexium-may-damage-arteries/
<h1>Shocking research suggests major long-term complications incurred from typical heartburn medications</h1>Colleagues at the Houston Methodist Research Institute discovered that endothelial cells that line the walls of arteries looked like fried eggs because the heartburn medications had created "garbage" build-up, causing artery cells to prematurely age. Plus, vascular cells couldn't seem to divide or proliferate properly, making it difficult for cells to repair the wounds occurring in blood vessels. So much for preventing heart attacks and strokes. Heart medications, essentially, are producing a coating that helps plaque stick to vessel walls like Velcro. Food begins to stick to your insides, something the pharmaceutical industry must have known about, but has obviously covered up for years.
Wondering where you bacteria-induced diarrhea is coming from?
Got a high risk of fractures?
Suffering from low levels of magnesium?
Are your kidneys losing their ability to filter blood properly?
Prilosec, Nexium and Prevacid lower the amount of acid produced by the stomach while coating your insides with "slow death." Now, more than 15 million Americans are sucking down these heartburn medication "proton pump inhibitors" (PPIs) with increasing doses and for way too long. According to the research, as many as 70 percent of these prescriptions have been dished out inappropriately. Wow! Still trust your MD?
In the new study, researchers compiled data from more than 25,000 people taking PPI prescriptions and more than 10,000 patients suffering from hardening of the arteries. The PPI users in both groups were more likely to suffer from high blood pressure, heart problems, obesity, and increased risk of chronic kidney disease. Plus, those taking the drugs twice a day, rather than once a day, doubled their risk of chronic kidney disease.
<h1>How do the heartburn medications damage the kidneys?</h1>First of all, these pharma meds cause magnesium levels in the body to decline. Lack of this important mineral over time causes bouts of acute kidney inflammation, eventually inflicting permanent damage to the kidneys. Doctor's so called solutions? Limit the time patients are on the drugs and the amount they take. Using common sense, that just means putting off the inevitable chronic kidney disease, dementia, and fractures. No wonder the elderly in
are classified as "weak" and "immune deficient." It's not
because they're old, it's because they sucking back heartburn meds while
continuing to chomp on fried meat and baked GMO sweets. America
Is it a coincidence that 30 million Americans suffer kidney disease, while 15 million Americans are taking heartburn medications? While the kidneys suffer damage, excess fluids build up in the body, causing swelling, nausea and vomiting. The human body deteriorates. You can't survive long without proper functioning kidneys. People over 60 years of age are at higher risk of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and acute renal failure. Still wonder why? How long have they been eating acidic foods, then taking their heartburn meds to quell the pain of "acid reflux?" Just what the doctor ordered! It's time for some lifestyle changes people, and we don't mean kidney transplants. https://consumer.healthday.com/gastrointestinal-information-15/heartburn-gerd-and-indigestion-news-369/ppis-and-kidney-disease-706877.html
<h1>Are you suffering from HMD – heartburn medication disease?</h1>Every substance you put in your body eventually passes through your kidneys. How many pharmaceutical meds do you take? Are you on medications to quell the side effects of other medications. MD's love to juggle meds–it makes them more money and keeps you as a customer for life (and a shortened life at that). Did you know that heartburn medications are the most commonly prescribed drugs in the world? The FDA, which is surprisingly corrupt, warns that usage of PPIs for longer than a year leads to nutrient deficiencies and bone density decreases that lead to fractures. You think they don't know about acute renal failure and heart attacks too? Don't be naive. https://www.drugwatch.com/proton-pump-inhibitors/kidney-damage/
Magnesium is crucial to proper kidney function, and heartburn medications severely depreciate this mineral. Wake up! Patients with kidney disease were TWICE as likely to have used PPIs. Dialysis costs about $30,000 per year and the average cost of a kidney transplant is a quarter of a million dollars.
Solution? Cut out the fried foods, meat, dairy, and processed sugar. Become a vegetarian or vegan, and consider supplementing with natural remedies like holy basil and enzymes.
