From an article in Health Daily News on May 25, 2010: “Blockbuster heartburn medications such as Prevacid, Prilosec and Nexium will now carry a warning on their labels linking the drugs to a heightened risk for fractures, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced.”
Here’s a link to the rest of the article:
While these heartburn medications are advertised as harmless, in fact long-term use significantly impairs your ability to metabolize proteins and minerals. The most obvious result we see in our practice is fatigue. However, it is now apparent that reduced bone mass is another long-term side effect. You need your stomach acid to digest your foods!
We have a better way. Acupuncture along with some of our herbs and enzymes can dramatically improve your digestion and eliminate reflux symptoms. Plus you will feel more relaxed!
