As a Chiropractor, I see a variety of patients with chronic health issues. While the FDA puts out a number of medications for the purpose of mitigating these ills, many of these FDA approved drugs have had disappointing results, a variety of debilitating side-effects, and we have yet to see the damage they reap in our bodies over the long term.
In the Health Section of The New York Times http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/06/25/combating-acid-reflux-may-bring-host-of-ills/, I was glad to read that health officials are FINALLY recognizing the adverse effects of Acid Reflux medication. The fact is, the stomach needs to produce acid in order to properly digest foods and absorb their nutrients. It turns out that in many cases, acid reflux medications like Prevacid and Nexium often reduce the absorption of vital nutrients like B12, magnesium, and calcium. Even more problematic, these medicines create dependancies that are difficult to break.
I choose to provide my patients with natural, or what I call “Wholistic” solutions for their digestive health.
The body’s not stupid. Its an incredible machine of nature, and requires natural care. Incompletely digested proteins can get into the blood stream and trigger mild to severe allergies of all kinds. The focus of my care to truly address these digestive/ allergy issues so that you won’t have to resort to being a guinea pig for the FDA.
Do you have questions about your digestive health? Your allergies? Let’s talk about it.
