Omeprazole: The Gastric Protector That Is Killing People
Our experience teaches us that we cannot take our doctor’s word anytime they prescribe something.
This does not mean that you should not trust your doctor or that they are out to get you. Instead, doctors, just like any other people, can be misinformed too. Bad apples in the barrel is a thing people encounter very often, but this is not our point. Here is a point of view of an average consumer.
The healthcare system in general is upside down with inefficiencies and it definitely isn’t as it should be because of the for-profit model people use. People have always been prone to corruption and greed.
Big Pharma and Big Medical are part of those for-profit organizations and thus should not be trusted.
Physicians these days do not educate people to exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet, but they prescribe medications for gastric acid problems instead.
One of these medications is Omeprazole.
Tens of millions of people get affected of some kind of digestive disease every year.
Most people treat their stomach problems with antacids, but these medications only target the symptoms and not the root of the issue. They do not fix things in the long term.
What would solve the problem in this situation is prescribing the right diet and probiotics, as this is what would likely heal the insides.
Rumor has it that indigestion is usually the result of too much acid in the stomach. However, it is now known that this problem may also be caused by low stomach acid levels.
So, if your case is the latter, taking a Tums will only make the problem worse.
Additionally, this may also lead to damage and killing off the good bacteria and intestinal flora in our body.
Omeprazole Side Effects
Omeprazole can lead to certain side effects, including prevention of the absorption of vitamin B12. As a result, the lack of B12 can lead to:
– Respiratory problems
– Red blood cell depletion (causing chronic fatigue)
– Muscle issues
– Neurological damage (leading to dementia)
– Damage to the central nervous system
The Kaiser Permanente Institute has conducted a big study on the topic of the dangers of Omeprazole. Namely, the researchers have been monitoring over 26,000 test subjects over a period of two years. The study participants that took Omeprazole were shown to have B12 deficiency (even more than 65 percent of them), which is a direct result of the taking of the medication.
No one should take this lightly, as it is a pretty concerning information. It can further lead to other complications, which on the other hand, can eventually have fatal consequences.
If you struggle with some intestinal issue, make sure that you do some research first and consult your doctor. Having all the knowledge you needed, ask your doctor for some advice on which changes you should implement in your diet as well as your lifestyle in order to heal your body permanently. Drugs are not the solution always and they usually only fill the pockets of big corporations, all of which is unfortunately at our own cost.
