Heart Burn / Indigestion Overview

Heartburn, also known as acid indigestion,[2] is a burning sensation in the central chest or upper central abdomen.[3][4][5] The pain often rises in the chest and may radiate to the neck, throat, or angle of the jaw.

Pylokit for mild gastritis
1 Reply RSS
After the Endoscopy, my doctor said that I have mild gastritis and gave Raberparzole plus domerpride capsules for 10 days but my family doctor prescribed me Pylokit for 7 days... What to do ??? ## If you don't have h. pylori, then the Pylokit isn't necessary, because it is used to eradicate that bacteria. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Rabeprazole and Domperidone as possibly including nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, and diarrhea. Have you double checked with your doctor to be sure which medications you should be taking?

Will activated charcoal thicken my blood
1 Reply RSS
I'm on nakatonnese but my blood thickened regardless. I suspect it's bentonite clay so I've stopped taking it. I am using activated charcoal to detox - recently extracted amalgam filings. I need to know if activated charcoal will be fine to use ## Hello, Malix! How are you? Actually, what you need to be aware of is that there is no scientific or medical proof that doing these types of detoxes do anything, according to the AMA and NIH. Your body naturally detoxes itself from such things, that is what your liver is intended to do and, if you've absorbed mercury, or other harmful substances from having amalgam fillings, it is just going to take time for it to leave your body. There is really nothing you can do to speed up or alter the natural process. And given that you are...

I have been using Ferrimed for a long time, but my iron and blood deficiency became worse. I am always very tired, sleepy and listless. A specialist physician said I most probably have bleeding ulcers due to too much stomach acid. I repeatedly told him that I have NEVER had heart burn or acid reflux my whole life. I did not feel any pain whatsoever when he examined my stomach, etc. He admitted me to the hospital, where his rooms are, to have upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopies. I gave thát doctor, beforehand, the same information that I gave the physician. Again I felt no pain when he examined my stomach, etc. Afterwards the procedures, he told my that I have bleeding ulcers. I never saw any "pictures" of the ulcers, and when I asked the rooms of both doctors, they...
