Here’s a staggering statistic:
According to the American Pharmacists Association,
Americans spend more than $3 billion a year on over-the-
counter antacids. Plus we spend another $13 billion on
prescription acid reducing drugs.
What makes it even more frightening is that antacids cause
a great deal more harm than good. In fact, taking antacids
regularly is one of the most dangerous things you can do.
Here are two reasons why they are dangerous and why you
must stop taking them immediately:
Reason #1: Antacids halt digestion
The logic behind antacids is that people who are suffering
from heartburn, acid-reflux, GERD, etc. must be producing
too much stomach acid.
So antacids work by neutralizing the acid in your stomach.
OK. If you’re in pain, that is true.
But your stomach NEEDS acid to digest proteins. So if the
acid gets neutralized, your digestion stops.
Now, your stomach, sensing something’s wrong, secretes
more acid to digest the food and get it moving…
…and the antacid neutralizes it. Digestion is stopped
This can go on for hours and hours, this produce acid-
neutralize it-produce acid-neutralize it cycle….
…which destroys the nutrients in your food.
Without the nutrients from the food, you feel hungry
So…you eat more, not because your stomach is empty, but
because your body has not been nourished properly. So the
body tells the brain that it needs more food so it can get
This is a primary reason so many people are overweight
In addition to blowing up like a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day
parade balloon, you get instant gas, bloating, cramping,
constipation and diarrhea. (Check your antacid package–
you’ll see those symptoms listed as side effects — and now
you know why.)
And all that excess acid secreted by your stomach for all
those hours has to go somewhere…and that somewhere is
So you’re back where you started with acid rising into
your throat and your chest on fire.
Isn’t that right?
Reason #2: Antacids upset your intestinal flora balance
Antacids are murder on the good bacteria (probiotics)in
Stomach acids do more than just break down food–they also
destroy dangerous microorganisms in your food that could
make you sick or even kill you.
But when your stomach acid is neutralized, it can’t
destroy these dangerous microorganisms, so they get into
And unless you’ve got a healthy army of good bacteria in
your gut (and few people do), you’re going to get sick.
Diarrhea, intense stomach pain, vomiting, you-name-it.
Coming out both ends.
This leads to a weakened immune system, bad bacteria
growth and leaves you susceptible to every bug, virus or
AND you probably still have your heartburn, acid reflux,
So what should you do?
Do what makes sense.
Eliminate the need for them to begin with.
Here are the 2 steps you need to take:
1- Order Great Taste No Pain now. If you have acid reflux
or have been diagnosed with other digestive problems, you
MUST start eating in the way that will make it stop–the
way I teach in Great Taste No Pain.
When you eat properly combined meals and get enough
alkaline foods in your diet:
– heartburn will go away
— acid reflux will go away
— GERD will go away
— gastritis will go away
All without antacids.
2- Take Blue Rock Holistics’ Super Shield everyday. You
can get it here:
Super Shield will help you rebound from years of antacids
ruining your digestive flora. It will help to build up and
maintain your supply of good bacteria. I take it every
Plus it will help maintain that critical balance of good
over bad, no matter what toxins, stresses, medications or
bad food choices might come your way.
Great Taste No Pain and Super Shield are the perfect
combination for outstanding digestive health without

PPS: Laura has said goodbye to antacids and acid reflux:
I’m 51 years old and was beginning to have very frequent
bouts of diarrhea and acid reflux. I wasn’t on any
prescribed medication but was regularly swallowing a bunch
of Tums and taking Zantac. I knew if I didn’t change
something, I would most likely be prescribed lots of it.
My eating habits were terrible and I was/still am
overweight. It seemed that no matter how much I ate, I
never felt satisfied, even when I was so full, I felt like
I needed to be put in a wheel barrow to leave a restaurant.
How crazy is that?
I started doing some research and found your website.
When I read your book, everything just seemed to come
together; finally, it all made complete sense. I get ill
when I think about all the money, time and effort I’ve
spent over my lifetime on diets and fads. They never left
me satisfied and the weight always came back.
I have been following your plan for about a month now.
WOW, WOW, WOW.
Not only have I lost 20 pounds, but the only time I feel
hungry is when it’s time for my next meal. I never, ever
crave sugar anymore. I have so much more energy it’s
But the best part is, I have not had one instance of acid
reflux since I started.
I find it so helpful to receive and read your e-mails
Eventually I know this new way of eating will become
routine for me. I also just ordered Super Shield
– http://www.bluerockholistics.com/product/pro-ss.asp so I
can start those as soon as they come in.
I can’t thank you enough for sharing your knowledge. I’m
so excited about this, I want to tell everyone about it.
