Read THIS Before Your Christmas Dinner
If you celebrate Christmas like I do, there’s going to be plenty of food and family around the table today.
Maybe a ham or a turkey… some homemade mashed potatoes… and even a slice of pumpkin or apple pie.
And when all the eating is over, you may go reaching for one of those acid-blocking drugs like Nexium or Prilosec.
These meds, known as proton-pump inhibitors, are bad news.
They stop your body from producing stomach acid (which is essential for proper digestion of food).
And now we know that PPIs increase your risk for cancer.
So, how can you treat heartburn? Let me show you how easy (and safe) it can be.
But these drugs also skyrocket your cancer risk.
In a new study out of Hong Kong, published in the journal Gut, researchers treated 63,397 people.
They discovered that people who used PPIs had a doubled risk of gastric cancer.
This is another reason to not mess with the body’s natural systems–those systems are there for a reason.
If you want to say goodbye to heartburn, here is your formula.
Dr. Scott’s Foolproof Formula to Avoid Heartburn:
- Avoid Soda: Sugary drinks are infamous for gas production (at both ends). When gas moves up from your digestive tract, it often carries stomach acid (causing heartburn).
- Stay Away from Sugar: Foods that contain sugar work exactly like soda (see above) and cause gas. This includes foods that act like sugar such as breads, grains, and starchy vegetables.
- Supplement with a Probiotic: A healthy gut microbiome (gut bacteria) can help reduce heartburn and taking a probiotic will help restore your microbiome.
- Don’t Skip the Salt: Salt helps keep bad bacteria in check and helps to produce strong stomach acid (which reduces heartburn).
If you want to banish heartburn forever, then follow my advice and support your body’s natural support mechanisms.

It always puzzles me how anyone thinks we can spray toxic chemicals on our crops and NOT have them affect our health!

If you have diabetes, it’s almost certain that your conventional medical doctor put you on a blood sugar-lowering drug. And there’s ALSO a strong possibility that the drug makes you feel terrible.

Okay, I’ll admit it. There have been times I’ve found it tough to maintain an optimistic outlook these last few years. And I’m not alone. Studies show that unhappiness and loneliness are on the rise.
