After suffering indegestion pain at work 20 years ago I tried to control it with various medicines bought over the counter. When it got to be impossible to work years ago my doctor prescribed a ppi. When I moved a few years later, the new doc put me on Omneprazol slow release and have been on it until this Christmas when it was ommited from my prescription package.. found out too late as they closed for Christmas holiday. I managed to eek out the remaining pills for a week but also did some research. Horrified to discover the dangers of this long term I decided to try without... Oh boy did I suffer. Resorted to omneprazol twice in desperate pain but have gradually managed to substitute this drug for all natural ingredients... believe me I have tried them all! The most surprising and scary was Betain with Pepsin... I was drowning in acid and taking more acid on top ?? however this really worked and things started to settle within a week. I do not need to take it now but would if I were having a large meat meal (which I don't usually) .
The best thing is a small bowl of Sauerkraut before a main meal. DGL liquorice extract, ginger tea, coconut oil capsuls, and Broccoli Seed Extract.
I eat a lot of raw green vegetables now. Brussels Sprouts and Brocolli and toasted Kale. I can almost get away with no antacid remedy all day now... but sometimes have to resort to a swig of Gaviscon or a small glass of Andrews. I still have a bit of a lump in my throat and ocassional reflux but nothing unbearable and it is improving by the day.
Main benefits are that I no longer getheart palpitations, sweats for no reason, dizzyness, shakeyness or disorientation that I have been suffering for the past 8 years. I do have a few blinding headaches still but nowhere near the constant misery I have had in the past. Best of all I have lost ten lbs without even trying and the bloatedness and water retention has eased considerably. I will never go back on this stuff.
