drugs such as Prilosec and Previcid are linked to an increased risk of heart
attacks according to data that extends back 15 years.It is suspected that the mechanism is
promotion of inflammation and clotting.Other acid suppressors do not have this action, but they are also less
effective.My recommendation is to find
the cause, which might actually be too little acid or a response to food
allergy, which can be treated with desensitization by many integrative
physicians.If you have to take one of
the offending drugs, you should also take nattokinase, an enzyme that reduces
inflammation and clotting.
