The News About Nexium is NOT Good!

Nexium, Prilosec, Protonix, Losec, Zegerid, Prevacid and omeprazole are drugs called proton pump inhibitors and the news about them is not good! 

Research published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, now finds that regular use of these products increases bone fracture by 25%. It also doubles the risk of contracting bad bacteria that causes infection, like the serious C. Difficile, and ups your risk for contracting pneumonia.

In summary: Nexium, NO! Apple-cider vinegar: YES! Read on...

100+ million prescriptions annually!

Drug Abuse Is the Issue...

The problem with taking these drugs is that they should NOT be prescribed for simple cases of heartburn, yet they are. Over 100 million prescriptions are issued yearly for these drugs.

If you are taking proton pump inhibitors to halt simple heartburn, you need to stop!

The Madam Aphrodite™ Solution...

If you suffer from heartburn, buy some organic, apple-cider vinegar (no other). Apple-cider vinegar combats bacteria naturally and contains many trace elements and minerals. It is good for you!

What's healthier than an apple? Not much, so it only makes sense that vinegar made from apples would be beneficial too. It helps detoxify and purify the body's organs and breaks down fat which aids the kidneys, liver and bladder.

Pills like Nexium cut down the stomach's acid levels and that's when problems develop. Your heartburn may subside but so will your calcium levels and your ability to fight off harmful bacteria. As a result, you also increase your risk for pneumonia and bone fractures can increase by as much as 25%.

Apple-cider vinegar, on the other hand, does not decrease your stomach's acid levels and helps you to digest your food more efficiently.

Dose: Take one tablespoon of apple-cider vinegar in a glass of water before eating. Your heartburn will be gone in as little as three days. Continue the practice for a few months, and it might go away all together. If you hate the taste, sweeten with a little honey. And be sure to shake the bottle before adding it to the water. The good stuff is on the bottom!

WARNING: Apple-cider vinegar acts as a blood thinner which is why it may also lower blood pressure. Be sure to contact your health-care professional before starting any regime that may affect your health.
