Re: Antacids and epsom salts

Hi Nortern Lite

Sorry to hear about your need to use Ant-acid Nexium.

The easy answer to your problem is that Epsom Salts is already a highly alkaine salt (Magnesium Sulphate), and when dissolved forms a highly alkaline fluid - in effect an ant-acid. If you are taking Epsom Salts , is there a need to take an Ant acid tablet as well?

More interesting is to think about why take an ant-acid at all, seems like you might have acid reflux from the stomach up the eosophagus which causes burning and discomfort (not nice). Ant-acids are often then prescribed to sooth the symptoms.

Question is - why is the spincter valve at the top of your stomach open or partly open when it should be sealed shut? Think in terms of musclular constriction and if muscles fail to work properly, then muscle valves also don't work properly.

Muscles need Sodium, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium to work properly. Rather than think in terms of using nutrient supplements to correct any imbalance / deficiency, think about using lots and lots of fresh produce. Personally I like juicing my vegetables as an excellent form of dense natural nutrition.

Dr. Batman (The Body's many cry's for water - book), claims a dehydrated body deliberately restricts onward movement of stomach contents knowing digestion takes water. It can't harm to begin a policy of drinking 2 litres of water each day, and see if this makes a difference.

Hope this helps
