Excessive Gas Conventional Treatments: The Solution or Part of the Problem?

How common treatment of digestive ailments is contributing to an excessive gas epidemic

We've been brainwashed the last several decades into thinking that the digestive acids produced by the stomach are the root of all digestive problems. Consequently, so-called "acid blockers" are commonly prescribed as the quick fix for all forms of indigestion, making them one of the best-selling over-the-counter drug categories in history.

But acid-blocking drugs, some of which claim to stop the secretion of stomach acid for up to 12 hours, are most likely contributing to the excessive gas and stomach bloat millions of people deal with on an ongoing basis. That’s because gas is one of the first signs of an intestinal tract that lacks acid, as gas-forming microorganisms flourish only in an alkaline environment. Without enough stomach acid, proteins and certain minerals like calcium can’t be broken down properly. And if protein isn't broken down completely, it ferments and putrefies, causing stomach bloat and excessive gas after eating, fullness, heartburn, and sometimes vomiting.

The good news is you can put an end to the bloating, belching, and flatulence with my all-natural remedies to relieve excessive gas and stomach bloat.
