My course on how to cure GERD: http://acid-reflux-and-gerd.com/ Disclaimer: http://acid-reflux-and-gerd.com/terms-and-conditions/ PPIs ( proton pump inhibitors) such as , Omeprazole, Prilosec, Prevacid, Aciphex, Protonix, and Nexium should not be taken more then 4 weeks , sometimes 8 weeks maximum, because of their side effects. You cannot stop it abruptly, it may cause severe GERD. Discontinue slowly, substituting one dose of PPI with medication from the other group: H-2 blocker (Cimetidine) or Antacid (TUMS) There is no rule how fast you may go. Its may take you 2-4 weeks or even longer. At the same time consider incorporating other natural substances such as Aloe Vera juice or DGL. It is very important at this time to identify the cause of YOUR acid reflux, see my video on this topic: 8 Common causes of Acid Reflux and GERD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6fWR_ahglU Stay healthy Dr. V Waks

Why don't drugs like aciphex, prilosec, nexium, or protonix work for me? I get this question alot in my medical practice. The answer is these drugs are perfect if you over produce Hydrochloric acid. However, Rarely do I come across a patient who truly over produces HCL. Most of the time their Acid reflux or Gastroesophageal reflux is caused by something else: Diet, weight, overeating, or LOW production of hydrochloric acid. Yes, Acid reflux can be caused by LOW PRODUCTION of HCl, you didn't read that wrong. Taking proton pump inhibitors (PPI's) like aciphex, prilosec, nexium, or protonix is perfect if you happen to be one of those few people who over produce hydrochloric acid. But if that's not you, well, you'll be asking yourself and your doctor "Why don't these drugs work for me?" Learn from a physician what GERD is doing to your body and how to treat it.FREE COURSE: http://acid-reflux-and-gerd.com/free-course/ Dr. Veronica Waks' Course on GERD acid-reflux-and-gerd.com Follow me on Twitter: @doctorveronica Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cure-for-acid-reflux/918304131535927?ref=bookmarks

Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) such as Prilosec, Nexium, Protonix, and Aciphex have been available for about 20 years and each year about 15 million people use them and bring in $10 billion every year. PPIs are vastly overprescribed by MDs and because they are available over the counter, are overused by patients. The major known side effects of PPIs include poor digestion, poor absorption of B12, iron, calcium, and magnesium which lead to an increased risk for osteoporosis, senile dementia, C difficile infections, pneumonia and now according to articles in the January 11, 2016 issue of the journal Internal Medicine an increased risk for having chronic kidney disease and, as documented in the June of 2015 issue of the journal PLoS One, heart attacks. PPIs also block the metabolism of Valium, Coumadin, DIlantin, Digoxin and probably decrease the effectiveness of Plavix. For more information, visit http://doctorsaputo.com

This video was created to display the mechanism of action of a rather new proton pump inhibitor - rabeprazole in case of H. pylori associated gastric inflammation. Helicobacter pylori produces urease and catalase. Urease cleaves urea, contained in gastric juice, which increases the pH of the immediate environment of the microbe and protects it from the bactericidal action of the acidic environment of the stomach. The most important factor of hypersecretion of hydrochloric acid in the stomach is the direct influence of Helicobacter pylori on the secretory process by excessive alkalization of the antral part of the stomach by the products of the urea hydrolysis by Helicobacter pylori. The consequence of excess alkalization is hypergastrinemia, which leads to hyperproduction of hydrochloric acid. Rabeprazole blocks the proton pump of the parietal cells and thereby reduce the secretion of hydrochloric acid.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Gastroesophageal reflux disease - GERD, or gastric reflux disease, is a chronic condition where stomach acid flows back up and damages the mucosa of the food pipe – the esophagus. At the junction between the esophagus and the stomach is the lower esophageal sphincter - the LES. The LES is a ring of muscle that is generally closed tight to prevent stomach acid from coming up. In normal digestion, the LES only opens briefly with each swallow to allow food bolus to pass down into the stomach. GERD occurs when the LES is ABNORMALLY relaxed and cannot close properly. Heartburn is a burning sensation in the chest associated with each regurgitation of gastric acid and is the most prominent symptom of GERD. Hiatus hernia is believed to be another cause of GERD. Hiatus hernia is a condition where the top portion of the stomach is pulled up forming a herniation above the diaphragm. This situation somehow compromises the barrier between the esophagus and the stomach, facilitating acid reflux. If left untreated, GERD can lead to a number of complications, including: - Esophageal stricture - narrowing of the esophagus as scar tissue builds up from reflux damage. The resulting narrowed food pathway may cause difficulty swallowing. - Esophageal ulcer – open sore as a result of acid erosion. An ulcer may bleed, cause pain and again make swallowing difficult. - Barrett's esophagus - precancerous changes to the esophagus. These changes are associated with an increased risk of esophageal cancer. GERD can be treated with dieting, life style changes and medication. Patients are advised to maintain a healthy weight; avoid alcohol, tobacco and foods or drinks that trigger heartburn; wait at least 3-4h after eating before going to bed; and sleep with an elevated head position. Drugs of choice include proton-pump inhibitors, which act to reduce gastric acid production. If these fail, a surgery may be recommended. In a procedure called fundoplication, the top portion of the stomach is wrapped around the lower esophagus and sewn into place. With this configuration, the muscles in the wall of the stomach reinforce the closure of the esophagus. This surgical procedure is particularly recommended when hiatus hernia is present as this can be fixed at the same time.

Top Ten Drugs That Cause Kidney Damage: Please Do Not Ignore This Please SUBSCRIBE : http://bit.ly/2e9Su11 The damage to the kidneys can often be caused by the use of various drugs, so we tried to classify them today and reveal the top ten, at least according to types: antibiotic, analgesic, etc. These are the top 10 drugs which damage kidneys: 1. Antibiotics, such as ciprofloxacin, vancomycin, methicillin, sulfonamides. 2. Analgesics, like acetaminophen, as well as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID): ibuprofen, aspirin, naproxen, etc. 3. Antiviral drugs, such as indinavir and tenofovir, both used to treat HIV, and acyclovir (brand name Zovirax) which is used in the case of herpes infection. 4. Anticonvulsants, like trimethadione (brand name Tridione), used to treat seizures and other conditions, and phenytoin (brand name Dilantin). 5. COX-2 inhibitors, such as celecoxib (brand name Celebrex). Two drugs, rofecoxib (brand name Vioxx), and valdecoxib (brand name Bextra) have been withdrawn from the market due to cardiovascular toxicity. They fall into the special class of NSAID which were intended to be safer for the stomach, but pose the same threat as other NSAIDs for kidney damage. 6. Chemotherapy drugs, like quinine, interferons, cisplatin, pamidronate, carboplatin, tacrolimus, cyclosporine, mitomycin C, bevacizumab; and anti-thyroid drugs, like propylthiouracil, used in the treatment of an overactive thyroid. 7. High blood pressure drugs, including captopril (brand name Capoten). 8. Heartburn drugs of the proton pump inhibitor class, such as pantoprazole (brand name Protonix), omeprazole (brand name Prilosec), esomeprazole (brand names Nexium, Esotrex), lansoprazole (brand name Prevacid), and rabeprazole (brand names Rabecid, Aciphex). 9. Lithium, used in the treatment of bipolar disorders. 10. Rheumatoid arthritis drugs, such as infliximab (brand name Remicade); hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, used in the treatment of malaria, rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus. ============================================ https://youtu.be/V79xcYXjtfQ Please SUBSCRIBE : http://bit.ly/2e9Su11

Pariet tablets contain the active ingredient rabeprazole, which is a type of medicine called a proton pump inhibitor. Rabeprazole acts in the stomach to decrease the production of stomach acid. Pariet is used to in individuals suffering from stomach ulcers, ulcers in the duodenum, and symptoms of gastroeosophageal reflux disease. Pariet relieves the symptoms of reflux and ulcers by slowing down the secretion of acid by the cells that line the stomach. It does this by inhibiting a single type of enzyme called a 'proton pump' that is needed to produce acid. So, by inhibiting this enzyme, the final stage in acid production is stopped.

If you take proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), there are a few supplements you need to take. B12 is one of these supplements. In this video, I explain why vitamin B12 is not absorbed by the body when you are taking acid suppressing medications. PPIs include: omeprazole (Prilosec, Prilosec OTC, Zegerid) lansoprazole (Prevacid) pantoprazole (Protonix) rabeprazole (Aciphex) esomeprazole (Nexium) dexlansoprazole (Dexilant) If you have LPR (laryngopharyngeal reflux) or GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease), this information is important to you. I'll talk about the role of gastric acid in absorbing B12 (and other vitamins). Sorry for the awkward lack of eye contact.

Proton pump Inhibitors(Prilosec, Omeprazole, Prevacid,Nexium, Protonix) and H2 antagonist (cimetidine,Ranitidine) are commonly prescribed for Acid reflux and Gerd without the side effects carefully considered. Haphazardly prescribing these medications can increase the patients risk for: esophageal cancer, Stomach cancer (gastric cancer), small and large intestine, rectal neuroendocrine tumors. Neuroendocrine cancer can occur in the lungs, GI tract, and other endocrine organs. From my experience in with my patients very few people truly over produce Hydrochloric acid.

Glucocorticoids such as Prednisone and Prednisolone can cause osteoporosis within 3-6 months of use and lead to fractures, especially vertebral fractures. Nearly 5% of women in the US are on these drugs for a variety of conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, vasculitis, and a myriad of skin disorders. The risk is related to the dose. Preventive treatment should include calcium, protein, vitamin D, vitamin K, strontium, regular weight bearing exercise and withdrawl of smoking and alcohol. There are also many drugs that predispose to osteoporosis that should be avoided if possible that include Coumadin, Heparin, proton pump inhibitors (includes Prilosec, Protonix, Nexium, Aciphex and others), SSRI antidepressants (such as Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa, etc), Avandia, Actos, and diuretics.

Hypomagnesemia on Proton-Pump Inhibitors with other medications, Mixing medications can be dangerous; this is practically true for PPI (proton pump inhibitors ), which are commonly prescribed for Acid reflux, GERD, laryngo-pharyngeal reflux (LPR) ,or Heartburn. This happens when the patient is suffering from concomitant conditions like Autoimmune Diseases, Asthma , and cancer or taking medications for them. PPI's like Aciphex Nexium Prevacid Prilosec omerprazole Protonix may lead to severe Hypomagnesemia when taken along with Azathioprine Cyclosporins rituximab (Rituxan) methotrexate (Trexall) sulfasalazine (Azulfidine). Make sure you double check with your doctor if you are considering taking any of these drugs.

Also other conditions like: Asthma, obstructive bronchitis and many others. Physicians though Corticosteroids did not contribute to Acid reflux or GERD; However, patients are complaining and evidence is mounting to suggest otherwise.

GERD (acid reflux). Hiatal Hernia Treatment. Why bother? Hiatal hernia often is the cause of GERD ( acid reflux, heartburn). Surgical treatment of hiatal hernia is ineffective because underlining causes such as obesity, constipation, chronic cough are not addressed. All those causes create increased intra-abdominal pressure and push stomach through the diaphragm into the chest cavity. When I (or chiropractor) treat patients with GERD due to hiatal hernia, I always try to address causes at the first appointment: obesity, constipation, chronic cough, acid reflux and GERD. Taking PPIs (Prilosec, Prevacid, Aciphex, pantoprazole (Protonix)) for GERD due to hiatal hernia does not make a lot of sense because you will be taking them every day for the rest of your life or until you fixed your hiatal hernia. PPIs have "black box warning", meaning that you cannot take them for more then 4-8 weeks. If taken more then 8weeks they may cause serious side effects, that is why I recommend some of my patients to go to a chiropractor and fix both: underlining problem and hiatal hernia.

Warning on Proton Pump Inhibitors and Fracture Risk From: USFoodandDrugAdmin | August 12, 2010 FDA is cautioning healthcare professionals and patients that proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) may increase the risk of fractures of the hip, wrist and spine. The drugs' labeling will be revised to reflect these concerns. PPIs are used to reduce gastric acidity, and include Nexium (esomeprazole), Dexilant (dexlansoprazole), Prilosec (omeprazole), Zegerid (omeprazole and sodium bicarbonate), Protonix (pantoprazole), Aciphex (rabeprazole) and Prevacid (lansoprazole). The new safety information is based on FDA's review of several epidemiological studies. These studies found that patients who received high doses of the drugs or took them for a year or more had the greatest fracture risk. Since most of these patients were older than 50, the increased risk was observed mainly in this age group. Healthcare professionals prescribing proton pump inhibitors should consider the possibility of an increased fracture risk, and whether a lower dose or shorter duration of therapy might be possible. Patients at risk for osteoporosis should have their bone status managed, and should supplement their diets with adequate amounts of vitamin D and calcium. Patients taking prescription PPIs should understand the possibility of an increased fracture risk, but they should be told not to stop their medication without consulting their healthcare professional. People using over-the-counter PPIs to treat heartburn should be cautioned not to take these drugs for more than 14 consecutive days, and not to take more than three 14-day treatment courses in one year.

PPIs, or Proton Pump Inhibitors, have been linked to severe kidney damage and kidney disease. PPIs are a class of drugs used to relieve heartburn and acid reflux by reducing the amount of acid produced by the stomach. Common PPIs include: Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec, Zegerid, Dexilant, AcipHex and Protonix. Over 15 million Americans take PPIs. However, taking PPIs cause a risk of developing severe health issues, including chronic kidney disease. A recent study showed patients who took PPIs once per day have a 15 percent increased risk of chronic kidney disease. Patients who took it twice per day were 46 percent more likely.

Eczema or Psoriasis (auto-immune conditions). Due to Prevacid, Protonix, Nexium (PPIs) Could PPIs (Proton Pump Inhibitors) such as Omeprazole, Prilosec, Prevacid, Aciphex, Protonix, Pantoprazole, Nexium cause Eczema, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), diabetes type 1, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis (auto-immune conditions) The article was published in PubMed: Esomeprazole Induces Upper Gastrointestinal Tract Transmucosal Permeability Increase, states that: "Esomeprazole induced a significant transmucosal leak in the upper GI tract of patients taking the drug for the first time. The leak occurred quickly, within days of first taking the drug. The leak was also reversed within days of stopping the medication." It concludes that:" There are potential implications for transmucosal leak of other medications that a patient on a PPI may be taking, as well as possible leak of endogenous peptides/proteins. The clinical consequences of this phenomenon are currently unknown, but are potentially important. PMID: 18684245 DOI: 10.1111/j.1365-2036.2008.03824.x The concept explained. When "gaps" got formed in GI, big particles, proteins, could "leak" into the blood stream, acting as Anti-gens (Ag). Immune system attacks them, by forming Anti-bodies (Ab). Ag-Ab complex deposited in tissues. Because Ag-Ab system is a foreign substance in the tissues, immune system attacks the host own tissues. its called auto-immune condition.

Proton Pump Inhibitors or PPIs including Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec and Omeprazole improve symptoms of heartburn medically referred to as GERD or Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease. They also assist in treating ulcers and protecting the stomach from irritation by aspirin. Unfortunately an increasing number of significant side effects appear associated with long term use. In spite of advertising claims highlighting superiority of one drug over another, differences between the products are minor. For many people with “acid reflux,” antacids like Maalox, Mylanta, Rolaids and Tums or antihistamines including cimetidine and ranitidine provide faster relief with fewer adverse reactions.

Long term PPI we usually don’t advice. PPI means Pantoprazole, azomeprazole, Omeprazole or Rabeprazole. Usually it is a safe medicine, but very long term like 6 months, 1 year or 2 years then people may develop some problems like vitamin B12 deficiency, vitamin D deficiency, sometimes iodine levels may come down and sometimes calcium deficiency. We should always have the risk-benefit ratio. The problem is sometimes if we don’t take PPI then they start developing food pipe ulcers. Slowly they will develop into Barett’s oesophagus; it means the skin change of the food pipe. They can develop food pipe cancers. Therefore we should always balance when we are taking PPI. If not indicated then we should not take PPI for a long time. If taken long time we should check our Vitamin B12, Vitamin D, Iodine and calcium levels and if low we should supplement that.

Heartburn/Acid reflux. Apple cider Vinegar as home remedy, side effects must know! My subscriber want to stop PPI (Omeprazole, Prilosec, Prevacid, Aciphex, Protonix, Pantoprazole, Nexium) and treat acid reflux with Apple Cider Vinegar. My advice is: do not stop the drug abruptly, because you may develop rebound effect: you will produce more HCL in the absence of the drug and consequently will have more GERD/ Acid Reflux. Discontinue it slowly, see my YouTube video how to do it: How to stop Proton Pump Inhibitors (Protonix): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-dxArvU7Wto The best approach to this problem would be: Identify the cause of your Acid Reflux/Heartburn, see my video on this topic: 8 Common causes of Acid Reflux and GERD. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6fWR_ahglU , address the problem and then you may start to discontinue the drug. When you are free of GERD/ Heartburn, the you may introduce ACV. The most common side effects of ACV are: electrolytes disbalance, osteoporosis/osteopenia and teeth enamel erosion. electrolytes disbalance and osteoporosis will develop after many month of using ACV, however, enamel erosion will develop in 2-4 weeks after using ACV daily. How to overcome side effects of apple cider vinegar? When using ACV use a straw and put it far behind your teeth. Rings your mouth after every use of ACV stay healthy.

People taking 31-120 doses per year were 10% more likely (1.1 times more likely) to have major depression than non-users. (This difference did not quite reach statistical significance, but was very close—close enough for me.) People taking 121-365 doses per year were 61% more likely (1.6 times more likely) to have major depression than non-users. People taking more than 365 doses per year were 108% more likely (2.1 times more likely) to have major depression than non-users. The risk of subsequent major depression after starting various PPI’s is shown below. Risk of Subsequent Depression The risk of subsequent major depression after starting a PPI increased as follows: Pantoprazole: 49% increased risk of subsequent major depression; (Protonix) Rabeprazole: 31% increased risk of subsequent major depression; (AcipHex) Lansoprazole: 26% increased risk of subsequent major depression; (Prevacid, Heartburn Treatment 24 Hour, Prevacid SoluTab, and Prevacid 24Hr) Esomeprazole: 13% increased risk of subsequent major depression; (Nexium, Nexium IV, Nexium 24HR, and Nexium Packet) Omeprazole: 11% increased risk of subsequent major depression; (Zegerid, Prilosec OTC, Zegerid OTC, and OmePPi) Subjects Subjects: 2,366 patients who took PPI’s and developed subsequent major depressive disorder and 9,464 comparison subjects without depression The study included “2,366 patients who were exposed to PPI’s and developed subsequent major depressive disorder and 9,464 comparison subjects without major depressive disorder, matched for age, sex, enrollment time, end point time, and follow-up period”.

Price Lists Zipped Here : http://is.gd/b3aa9f32v5 Glucocorticoids such as Prednisone and Prednisolone can cause osteoporosis within 3-6 months of use and lead to fractures, especially vertebral fractures. Nearly 5% of women in the US are on these drugs for a variety of conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, vasculitis, and a myriad of skin disorders. The risk is related to the dose. Preventive treatment should include calcium, protein, vitamin D, vitamin K, strontium, regular weight bearing exercise and withdrawl of smoking and alcohol. There are also many drugs that predispose to osteoporosis that should be avoided if possible that include Coumadin, Heparin, proton pump inhibitors (includes Prilosec, Protonix, Nexium, Aciphex and others), SSRI antidepressants (such as Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa, etc), Avandia, Actos, and diuretics.

CNN reports a new study says taking proton pump inhibitors might dramatically increase risk of kidney failure and kidney disease. Doctors prescribe PPIs to help people who suffer from regular heart burn, ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease or acid reflux. They are sold under the names Prevacid, Prilosec, Nexium, Protonix, Aciphex and others. About 15 million Americans have prescriptions for them, although people can get them without a prescription -- so the number who use them is likely much higher. The medications are popular because they relieve symptoms pretty quickly. It was also thought that they had a low toxicity. Looking at data from the Department of Veterans Affairs, the study's authors found just over 173,000 people who used PPIs and just over 20,000 took a PPI alternative known as histamine H2 receptor blockers. Five years later, data showed that patients who took PPIs had a 96% increased risk of developing kidney failure and a 28% increased risk of chronic kidney disease compared to the patients who took the histamine H2 receptor blockers. http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/14/health/proton-pump-inhibitors-kidney-failure/index.html?eref=rss_us http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Tips for your digestive health and more by Rakesh Gupta, MD in Brooklyn and Queens New York. We are always looking for new suggestions and comments, please share your thoughts! You may also check out guptagastro.com for more info. Hi Im Doctor Gupta Another common question asked by my patients is concerning reflux or GERD, Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease. GERD is essential when stomach contents whether solid or liquid are pushed into the esophagus and that causes symptoms of heartburns, regurgitation, and chest discomfort. Now how does GERD happen, what is the reason why one experiences GERD? Usually the food goes through your mouth through your food pipe and passes into your stomach. At the junction of the food pipe and the stomach, is a band of fibers called lower esophageal sphincter. Which makes it like a one way passage. So food can enter into the stomach but should not be coming back out. When this sphincter is loose or incompetent, food can easily regurgitate into your food pipe causing inflammation, ulceration, nausea, food coming into your mouth. Some people complain of sore throat, difficulty in breathing and cough especially when they lie down. So these are the typical symptoms of Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease. Now what besides this can cause GERD? There are various medicines for asthma, blood pressure, and even narcotics and sedatives, which can, which can decrease, the tonicity or the strength of the lower esophageal sphincter and cause these symptoms. Diagnosis is usual made by upper endoscopy, where a flexible tube with a light at the end goes into your mouth, into your food pipe and stomach to take pictures and biopsies to examine whats going on. Whether there is any damage to the esophagus or not, and biopsies can be taken to prove if theres any changes in the lining of the esophagus, and that can very safely and very effectively diagnose the condition of GERD. There are other things which you should be aware of. GERD can cause inflammation and also sometimes changes in the lining of the stomach or esophagus which is called Barret's esophagus. And this is a premalignant condition and has to be screened reasonably frequently if you have that. So about close to ten percent of people who have GERD, will have Barrets and close to ten percent of people who have Barrets will have some sort of cancer of the esophagus. So almost close to 1% of people who have regular heartburn or GERD can end up with having problems in the esophagus. So get your testing done, if you really think you have these symptoms, another test that can be easily done is a barium swallow, which is very good, but will not be able to biopsy the esophagus to look for any changes, like Barrets . What are the other modifications, which I prescribe my patients? Typically patients who have GERD, I advise them to loose weight, don't wear tight clothing, there should be nothing tight around their abdominal girth, avoid coffee, chocolate, peppermint, alcohol, avoid spicy foods, don't lie down immediately after a big meal, if possible eat there to four hours before you lie down and elevate the head of your bed by about three to six inches with this behavior modification and the various medicines we have available, like antacids, H2 blockers like zantac, or proton pump inhibitors like prilosec, aciphex, dexalant, pantaprazole, and nexium, they can help decrease the acid in your stomach so there is no acid reflux in your food pipe causing these symptoms. So if you have any of these symptoms, like night cough, clearing of the throat all the time, sore throat, chest pains, heartburns and you feel food regurgitating up into your mouth, consult a gastroenterologist and be tested adequately and be treated then. Thank you.

Pediatric GERD Medicine. All children spit up every now and then — particularly after an encouraging. Notwithstanding, pampers who spit up much of the time and have different manifestations, for example, poor weight pick up, touchiness, or a drawn out hack, may have gastroesophageal reflux malady (GERD). In GERD, the substance of the stomach, for example, corrosive and sustenance, are disgorged move down the throat. Some of the time this can make your newborn child upchuck. This can prompt poor weight pick up and disintegration of the throat. GERD happens in babies for a few reasons. In any case, it's typically on the grounds that the lower esophageal sphincter, which shuts the throat off from the stomach, may not be develop enough to close legitimately. Much the same as GERD in grown-ups, GERD in newborn children can be dealt with a few ways. Your specialist may first suggest that you roll out improvements in encouraging, for example, *adding rice drain or grain to your newborn child's container. *burping your baby after they have expended one to two ounces of bosom drain or recipe *avoiding overloading. *holding your newborn child upright for 30 minutes after a bolstering. Sorts of pharmaceuticals. There are a few sorts of pharmaceuticals that may help diminish GERD indications. Stomach settling agents. Gastric corrosive buffering operators, or acid neutralizers, help kill corrosive from the stomach. A few cases incorporate Rolaids and Alka-Seltzer. In spite of the fact that they help ease side effects, acid neutralizers aren't suggested for long haul utilize in light of the fact that they can cause complexities and symptoms, for example, looseness of the bowels and blockage. Check the names of everywhere throughout the-counter pharmaceuticals previously you offer them to your tyke. Most finished the-counter acid neutralizers aren't affirmed for kids younger than two. Mucosal surface boundaries. Mucosal surface boundaries or frothing specialists help shield the surface of the throat from stomach corrosive. One illustration is Gaviscon, which is endorsed for newborn children more than one year old. The primary reactions of this medicine are stoppage and loose bowels. Gastric antisecretory specialists. Gastric antisecretory specialists help diminish the measure of corrosive the stomach creates and are the GERD prescriptions most regularly recommended for babies. There are two sorts of antisecretory specialists that assistance lessen the corrosive in the stomach. These are histamine H2 receptor rivals (H2RAs, or H2 blockers) and proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Some regular H2RAs are: *cimetidine (Tagamet). *ranitidine (Zantac). *famotidine (Pepcid). *nizatidine (Axid). These pharmaceuticals begin working rapidly. In any case, they aren't typically suggested for long haul use in newborn children. PPIs are another class of medications that diminish the measure of corrosive in the stomach. Some basic PPIs are: *esomeprazole (Nexium). *omeprazole (Prilosec). *lansoprazole (Prevacid). *rabeprazole (AcipHex). *pantoprazole (Protonix). PPIs are by and large more compelling than H2RAs and are better to heal the throat from gastric emissions. Specialists suggest utilizing the littlest conceivable day by day measurements for newborn children. PPIs aren't authoritatively endorsed for general use in babies under one year old. In any case, esomeprazole has as of late been affirmed for use in newborn children more than one month old for specific conditions. Your youngster's specialist may consider endorsing these medicines on the off chance that they trust the advantages exceed the dangers. Extra realities about GERD solutions: Both H2RAs and PPIs decrease the measure of corrosive in the stomach. Accordingly, newborn children who take these prescriptions are at expanded hazard for pneumonia and gastrointestinal tract (GI) diseases. This is on account of stomach corrosive can shield from disease. Drawn out utilization of PPIs can make it troublesome for the body to ingest calcium. PPIs have been associated with an expanded hazard for bone cracks in grown-ups. Be that as it may, there hasn't been look into done to analyze a connection between bone cracks and newborn children. how to naturally cure acid reflux,natural trick to destroy acid reflux,How to help acid reflux,stop acid reflux,Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease,baby spitting up,acid reflux disease,acid reflux cough,acid reflux in babies,acid reflux cure,acid reflux symptoms,GERD indications,natural tricks to destroy acid reflux,home remedies for acid reflux,how to treat acid reflux naturally,how to beat acid reflux naturally,what causes acid reflux,symptoms of acid reflux All Photos Licensed Under CC Source : www.pexels.com www.pixabay.com www.commons.wikimedia.org

Hello Everyone, here is a gastrointestinal lecture on Peptic Ulcer Disease made easy to understand to help aide in your study sessions. I have gathered all of the important information from my Med- Surg Book (Brunners and Suddarth 12th edition) and NCLEX review (Saunders 6th edition) that will prepare you for your nursing test whether it is for school or NCLEX. Part 2 of this lecture will be located under the Pharmacology section as it continues with GI meds that will further explains MOA, side effects, etc. Here are some Extra information that may help and guide you... Pharmacologic Therapy: Currently, the most commonly used therapy for peptic ulcers is a combination of antibiotics, proton pump inhibitors, and bismuth salts that suppress or eradicate H. pylori. Recommended therapy for 10 to 14 days includes triple therapy with two antibiotics (eg, metronidazole [Flagyl] or amoxicillin [Amoxil] and clarithromycin [Biaxin]) plus a proton pump inhibitor (eg, lansoprazole [Prevacid], omeprazole [Prilosec], or rabeprazole [Aciphex]), or quadruple therapy with two antibiotics (metronidazole and tetracycline) plus a proton pump inhibitor and bismuth salts (Pepto-Bismol). Research is being conducted to develop a vaccine against H. pylori (Kabir, 2007). Histamine-2 (H2) receptor antagonists and proton pump inhibitors are used to treat NSAID-induced ulcers and other ulcers not associated with H. pylori infection. The patient is advised to adhere to and complete the medication regimen to ensure complete healing of the ulcer. Because most patients become symptom-free within a week, the nurse stresses to the patient the importance of following the prescribed regimen so that the healing process can continue uninterrupted and the return of chronic ulcer symptoms can be prevented. Rest, sedatives, and tranquilizers may be added for the patient’s comfort and are prescribed as needed. Maintenance dosages of H2 receptor antagonists are usually recommended for 1 year. For patients with ZES, hypersecretion of acid may be controlled with high doses of H2 receptor antagonists. These patients may require twice the normal dose, and dosages usually need to be increased with prolonged use. Octreotide (Sandostatin), a medication that suppresses gastrin levels, also may be prescribed. Patients at risk for stress ulcers (eg, patients with head injury or extensive burns) may be treated prophylactically with IV H2 receptor antagonists and cytoprotective agents (eg, misoprostol, sucralfate) because of the risk of upper GI tract hemorrhage. Assessment/ Diagnostic Finding: Stools may be tested periodically until they are negative for occult blood. Gastric secretory studies are of value in diagnosing achlorhydria and ZES. H. pylori infection may be determined by endoscopy and histologic examination of a tissue specimen obtained by biopsy, or a rapid urease test of the biopsy specimen. Other less invasive diagnostic measures for detecting H. pylori include serologic testing for antibodies against the H. pyloriantigen, stool antigen test, and urea breath test. H. pyloric can be transmitted through contact of emesis. Potential Complications: Many times the bleeding from a peptic ulcer stops spontaneously; however, the incidence of recurrent bleeding is high. The nurse monitors the patient carefully so that bleeding can be detected quickly. If bleeding recurs within 48 hours after medical therapy has begun, or if more than 6 to 10 units of blood are required within 24 hours to maintain blood volume, the patient is likely to require surgery. ZES: ZES is suspected when a patient has several peptic ulcers or an ulcer that is resistant to standard medical therapy. 90% of tumors are found in the “gastric triangle,” which encompasses the cystic and common bile ducts, the second and third portions of the duodenum, and the junction of the head and body of the pancreas.

At our SV Ayurveda Clinic in New Jersey, we treat a full spectrum of imbalances, including severe acid reflux conditions as in Barrett’s Esophagitis. Dr. Mishra always emphasizes finding the “hetu” or root cause of a condition - otherwise we will go round in circles chasing symptom after symptom. I am sharing this case history, not only because it shows our success with this condition, even without the use of any pharmaceuticals, but because it illustrates how when you focus on finding the etiological root condition, with the right SVA tools, there is very little you cannot address successfully. Barrett's Esophagitis is a condition in which the cells that make up your esophagus were damaged by exposure to acid from the stomach. The condition often develops after years of experiencing gastroesophageal reflux (GERD). About 5-10% of people with GERD develop Barrett's esophagus, and it affects men almost twice as often as women and is usually diagnosed after the age of 55. Modern medicine uses proton pump inhibitors (PPI's) most commonly in the use of GERD and Barrett's esophagus. These medicines reduce the production of acid by blocking the enzyme in the wall of the stomach that produces acid. Omeprazole (prilosec), prevacid, dexilent, aciphex, Protonix and Nexium are some examples of PPI's. These medications are known to have severe side-effects - kidney damage, dementia, and weakening of the bones. Not to mention that they often do not help because they do not get to the root of the problem What I find more often in my practice is this: after you eat a meal, the stomach squirts acid into the duodenum, and the gall bladder squirts bile into the duodenum to dilute the stomach acid, so that the food doesn't burn the lining of the gut as it makes its way through the small and large intestines. However, the bile can get thick and turn sludge-like for various reasons and then it may not flow so well, as it sits in the gall bladder, stagnating. If it sits too long it can develop gallstones. This patient had an underlying subclinical thyroid condition in which his thyroid was underactive, creating laziness in the gall bladder. Thus, when he would eat the stomach acids were squirting into the duodenum but the bile was not, creating an acidic environment which, over time, burnt his esophagus. In his case we had to support the thyroid gland, then thin out the bile so it would flow again, and then fix the lining of the gut. Many of the gastroenterologists nowadays are not recommending the PPI's because they don't work in many of the cases, yet they do not know these other imbalances are creating the disturbance, and often times the patient is left on their own to suffer with their symptoms without knowing what to do. Usually the patient does worse on the PPI's because now they have two problems, lack of bile flow and lack of stomach acid! Again, as I state in all my case histories, if you do not get to the root of the problem, the treatment will be only minimally effective. By addressing the root cause, these patients are so happy to finally find relief once and for all from their resistant symptoms.
