Dr. Jonathan Wright discusses how to have better stomach health and how to get off acid blocking drugs.
Many Americans suffer stomach problems. Whether you call it heartburn or acid reflux, this painful condition is also associated with throat cancer. Shockingly the problem may not be too much stomach acid but too little. And antacids and acid blocking drugs may actually be making the problem worse. In his interview and book Dr. Wright outlines the clear reasons why choosing conventional antacids to suppress acid will actually make your problem worse in the long run.
Dr. Wright is the founder of the Tahoma Clinic in Renton, Washington. With advanced degrees from Harvard and the University of Michigan, Dr. Wright has been at the forefront of natural biomedical research and treatment since 1973. He pioneered the use of bio-identical hormones and developed a successful natural treatment for childhood asthma.
If you suffer with stomach pain and your only relief has been with acid blocking drugs, then you should listen to this interview. I have worked with numerous people who have tried every drug available for excess stomach acid without success. It was only when they consumed some digestive acid did they find real relief. Most people who are on acid blockers have never had their stomach acid tested. Too little stomach acid can cause the same symptoms as excess stomach acid. So how do you know? Listen to this interview with Dr. Wright and consider your alternatives.
Some of the alternatives include digestive supplements that include betaine Hcl, your normal stomach acid, natural aloe vera juice, digestive enzymes and a better diet. You’ll learn about these in this interesting interview. For more help, see Dr. Wrights book, Your Stomach, What is Really Making You Miserable and What to Do About It. This book can help you learn more about you condition and some of the complications from both too much or too little stomach acid. The actual content is rather short and is more of a general overview and not a specific treatment protocol. The book is highly referenced and includes information on finding a holistic practitioner.
