I sure wish I’d known about DiGize when I was pregnant! Between morning sickness during my first trimester and heartburn during the 2nd and third, I didn’t have much relief. At the end, I did resort to taking some antacids from time-to-time, but I limited myself as much as possible. I know people who deal with heartburn and reflux on a daily basis, and constantly pop antacids constantly to stop it.
Did you know that antacids actually do more harm to your body than good?
Antacids effectively “block” stomach acid, but at the same time, they block the absorption of nutrients and can hinder proper digestion, possibly making indigestion worse, according to Phyllis A. and James F. Balch in “Prescription For Nutritional Healing.” In fact, the millions of Americans who take antacids to treat their heartburn are actually making a big mistake, according to Pamela Sky Jeanne, a naturopathic doctor from Oregeon. “One of the worst things you can do for your health is take an antacid,” Jeanne says in Bill Gottlieb’s “Alternative Cures.” Jeanne explains, “That’s because, in order to break down proteins into amino acids that are usable by the body, you must have sufficient hydrochloric acid in your stomach.”
Besides interfering with digestion and nutrient absorption, both prescription and over-the-counter heartburn medications can have startling side effects. According to Phyllis and James Balch, many popular antacids contain aluminum compounds, which can cause constipation; magnesium compounds, which can cause diarrhea; sodium bicarbonate, which can cause gas and bloating; and calcium bicarbonate, which can actually cause the stomach to create more acid than usual once the antacid wears off.
Other heartburn medications may have more serious side effects. In “Graedons’ Best Medicine,” by Joe Graedon and Dr. Teresa Graedon, there is an account of a woman whose doctor prescribed her Reglan and Pepcid for her severe heartburn. Within days after she started taking the drugs, she began experiencing muscle spasms in her neck and shoulders, and a few weeks later she began experiencing uncontrollable muscle twitching, insomnia, hallucinations and even thoughts of suicide. When doctors could not reverse these symptoms with other prescription drugs, they became so severe that the patient temporarily checked herself into a psychiatric ward temporarily, not realizing at the time that she was having an adverse reaction to her heartburn medications.

So, instead of reaching for that antacid tablet the next time you experience reflux or heartburn (or any of the other symptoms mentioned above), reach for the DiGize instead!
