In our culture of instant gratification, we’re led to believe that fast equals effective. So when it comes to choosing treatment for digestive problems it’s tempting to take the convenient approach and opt for conventional medication. And why not? It usually offers immediate relief of symptoms. Makes sense, right?
However, there’s a long-term effect of treating symptoms in the short term: you don’t get to address the underlying condition that’s causing the problems and there are some serious side-effects to consider.
But decide for yourself!
THE EASY OPTION
Many digestive ailments are treated with antacids or acid blocking medications such as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) or H2 Blockers. Most antacid disclaimers suggest the product should be discontinued after 14 days, whilst PPIs and H2 Blockers’disclaimers state that the product should be discontinued after 8 weeks. Conventional medicines only offer short-term relief of symptoms, but do not treat the underlying issues.
PPI’s and H2 Blockers suppress the body’s natural secretion of gastric juices. In addition antacids are alkaline-based and are used to neutralize stomach acid. Doing this on a regular basis increases the occurrence of food allergies. According to Professor Erika Jensen-Jarolim and colleagues at the University of Vienna “Medications that reduce acid secretion OR neutralize the acidity within the stomach may set up a situation where harmless food proteins become potential allergens, which can then trigger an immune system response resulting in an allergic reaction.”
Without sufficient levels of stomach acid, the body is also unable to absorb the vital nutrients essential for normal functioning, proper digestion cannot take place and the brain, bones, immunity and nerve functions are all compromised.
In addition there are a significant number of side effects of antacids: Anxiety, Bloating, Constipation, Diarrhoea, Headaches, Fatigue, Kidney Stones, Hypercalcemia, Mood Swings, Muscle Pain, Nausea, Osteoporosis, Renal Failure, Rickets, Urination Frequency and Discomfort.

A CUSTOMER TELLS HER STORY: ‘I FELT LIKE I HAD SWALLOWED A KNIFE!’
“I’m 38 now, since I was 22 I have suffered from a peptic ulcer, gastritis, spastic colon and other stomach related issues due to stress. I was on medication for a while but couldn’t afford taking the medicine for long periods of time. I decided to eat what I like and take the consequences! Most recently I was in excruciating pain and felt like I had swallowed a knife! The pain in my stomach and behind my ribcage was excruciating, I couldn’t eat, my energy levels were low, I felt depressed and my skin had a strange and unhealthy colour. I felt so bad that I couldn’t function normally. I decided to consult the Internet where I found The Other Option’s DIGESTIVE REMEDY™ Siberian Pine Nut Oil. I went to buy it this past Friday and could feel a difference on Saturday already as I could eat without feeling severe pain afterwards. On Sunday, I noticed that my skin had a healthy glow. I couldn’t believe it! Today is Monday and I feel so much better, my stomach isn’t bloated and sensitive anymore. I can’t wait to see how I’m going to feel in another few days’ time. It’s amazing! I will recommend this product wherever I go.” Rindi Boshoff, Pretoria
