*Results may vary. The information in this site is NOT to be construed as medical advice. Cirrhosis of the liver is a serious condition and if you have it, you should see a doctor. I am not a doctor and am not able to dispense medical advice. My husband saw a doctor (many of them) and they were able to do things for him that I could not. However, they were unable to recommend alternative treatments, and in MY OPINION they were VERY beneficial to my husband, so I am providing some of that information here. My husband and I tried all of these alternative therapies at our own risk, and if you try them you will be doing the same. At your own risk. No promises are made in this blog. I am not saying there is a cure for cirrhosis or any other condition. However, I believe most people can get well, like my husband did. My husband is alive, happy, productive, functional and has his energy back. He no longer worries about having to go on disability or getting a $577,000 liver transplant. Cirrhosis is a serious condition. He is currently in the fibrosis stage (Stage 2 liver disease), which is still serious. I cannot guarantee you will have the same results. I just want you to know about what worked well for my husband. I hope you will share what you learned with others, and share your story with us as well. This blog was made for YOU! Thanks for visiting!

Have you been Negatively Affected by Proton Pump Inhibitors? You could be have cause for a lawsuit!
I just saw a commercial on TV, that was a law firm, saying that if you have taken Nexium, Prilosec or Prevacid (all Proton Pump Inhibitors), you could have a case for a lawsuit! This didn't surprise me one bit. They described how these drugs cause kidney failure, and didn't even mention anything about how they also can cause LIVER failure!!!
Yes, I understand doctors give them as a SOMETIMES necessary, cheap, quick fix to keep a person from bleeding to death. In that case, OK, I get it that it could be helpful. But in my opinion these things are WAY over-prescribed, and they were given to my husband despite the fact that his esophagus looked great during his endoscopies. He took this stuff for nine months, and I would swear that PPIs gave my husband Osteoporosis and more scarring of the liver. It even says on the FDA's website that these can be the side effects. Unbelievable. I have yet to talk to ONE person who's told me that they were warned about the dangerous side effects of these drugs.
You can see the post I did in 2014, about the dangers of Proton Pump Inhibitors, by clicking HERE.
Basically, it is VERY BAD to make the body STOP producing acid, which is what these drugs do. Please have a look at these videos. You can also see more information about other ways to help acid reflux, by reading my other post that you can see, HERE.
I also highly recommend watching this video by Dr. Peter Glidden. He says that if one of his patients is on a PPI, he tells them to flush it down the toilet!
Hope this helps.
