Today I am going to be discussing the FDA’s recent release about Zantac, a drug commonly prescribed for acid reflux and heartburn. This is a topic I’m extra passionate about because a recent study confirmed that this drug has potentially dangerous levels of NDMA, which is a chemical that has been linked to liver damage and cancer.

In this episode, I explain the dangers of taking Zantac and other proton-pump inhibitors, as well as where the ingredients for these drugs are being manufactured. I also share several natural ways to tighten up your lower esophageal sphincter and how to heal your stomach lining so you can heal your body naturally and stop ingesting these hazardous chemicals.

What You’ll Learn In Today’s Episode:

  • Why you shouldn’t use proton-pump inhibitors.
  • What really causes acid reflux.
  • The benefits of enzymes instead of probiotics.
  • What you can do to heal your stomach lining.
