Acid-Reducing Medicines Are Addictive

Published: September 29, 2012

Addressing with common indigestion medications called "proton pump inhibitors (PPIs)"  for eight weeks in healthy people (who don’t have heartburn) causes acid-related symptoms such as heartburn and acid reflux once therapy is stopped. This was shown in a study in Gastroenterology, the official journal of the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) Institute (see article at EurekAlert).

Though new to specialists, this is old news to our newsletter readers. As we have noted for decades, acid-reducing medications are addictive. Fortunately, natural remedies can help you eliminate heartburn and wean you off acid blockers comfortably (see "Eliminating Chronic Acid Reflux & Indigestion").
