Proton Pump Inhibitors

Post by Admin on Sun Nov 23, 2014 12:35 pm

I have seen reference to this in some member's posts, so I thought that the following would be of interest:

Acid blocking drugs- The “proton pump inhibitors” sold over-the-counter and by prescription are such strong drug muggers of magnesium that they can cause fatal heart arrhythmias over time. Even the FDA agrees and issued a black box warning regarding this. Magnesium deficiency causes muscle pain too. If you take this class of acid suppressors on a daily basis, I highly recommend you supplement with a high-quality magnesium formula to minimize your risks.  The supplement is taken 4 to 6 hours away from the drug. Mineral deficiencies from these types of drugs can weaken your bones. Do you love me for telling you this, or think I’m crazy? Doesn’t matter, the studies back me: Long-term or chronic daily use has been linked to increase fractures of the spine, hip and wrist.

Hmmmm............I have taken PPIs in the past, but have not for several months. I told my PA I didn't want to take them any longer, because I heard they can actually cause your stomach to produce extra acid when you stop taking them, after taking them long term. I still have trouble with acid reflux. I take TUMS now that my calcium is not high. It doesn't always work for the acid reflux. I hope I'm not harming myself by not taking the PPIs, but that scares me too!
