Are Nexium and Prilosec Too Popular?

As you may know, I’m not a fan of this family of drugs. There are all kinds of problems that arise from interfering with normal acid production in the stomach, including osteoporosis, anemia poor healing of wounds, low protein problems like hormone and immune system problems and intestinal infections.

I was pleased to see that CBS news reported on some of the problems these drugs caused. My thanks to Rebecca on the front desk for pointing out this story. Even I wasn’t aware that these drugs caused an increased risk of pneumonia!

There’s some good advice for natural prevention in the story. Ask me about applied kinesiology methods I’ve used for years to help with acid reflux without drugs.

Here’s the link to the CBS story
