Episode 10: Health risks of acid lowering medications

December 14, 2020

An increasing amount of research highlights the negative health effects of acid-lowering medications for both people and pets when used long-term. Examples of potential adverse effects include the increased risk of bone fractures, pneumonia and other upper respiratory tract infections, diarrhoea, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease and dementia - just to name a few!

In this episode I explain what acid-lowering medications are, why a doctor or a vet might prescribe them, and ways that you can minimise the side effects or heal any damage already done via diet, lifestyle and targeted supplementation.
