The difference between natural and conventional treatments
Take a look at the comparison between The Other Option’s DIGESTIVE REMEDY™ Siberian Pine Nut Oil and conventional stomach treatments and decide for yourself:
Digestive ailments are usually treated with antacids or acid blocking medications such as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) or H2 Blockers. Most antacid disclaimers maintain that 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.
- Antacids are alkaline based and are used to neutralize the acid in the stomach, they do not affect new acid secretion
- PPIs and H2 Blockers suppress the body’s natural secretion of gastric juices
Negative effects of neutralizing stomach acid

A 2009 report in The American Journal of Gastroenterology suggests that PPIs may cause dependency in digestive ailment sufferers by increasing gastric symptoms if they are discontinued. A 2010 report in The American Journal of Gastroenterology reported on another study where healthy volunteers who were given a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) or placebo for four weeks and then followed for six additional weeks. One week after treatment was stopped, 44% of the PPI recipients reported symptoms of dyspepsia, compared to 9% of the placebo recipients. By the third week, this difference between the two groups had disappeared. The conclusion is that rebound hyperacidity mediated by gastrin hormone secretion occurs following the discontinuation of PPI’s. Patients should expect symptoms of hyperacidity to worsen for a week or two after stopping these drugs.
