Hello from Kim & Tim. Looking forward to working with you.
Join our supportive Essential Oil community.
Kim encourages you to learn about the Dangers of using PPI's (Proton Pump Inhibitors), aka Omeprazole, and the long-term side-effects from Tim's research.
Kim Says: "I am so proud of him being off these PPI's. What a relief from the nasty side-effects he has dealt with for years now. Way to go! Thank You for making wise choices."
Now the before story.
Kim Says: "Tim longed to be off of PPI's due to side-effects. So, he did research on foods that heal and tried that option to get off PPI's. It was horrible! just horrible.. Miserable all night long. I didn't get any sleep either. So when Tim told me he wanted to get off his PPI, my heart sunk. One part of me was yes. The other part of me was saying NO not again. It was miserable in the sense he couldn't eat certain foods, sleep was horrible, just to mention a couple of things. Please know I love my husband and really want him to make steps to keep his life as healthy as he can. When he went off all those times before, it was like life was not living, so miserable for both of us. You'll see that in Tim's research, that when a person first goes off PPI's, the stomach does not react so well. Which is a very interesting fact and means getting past the rough spot makes a huge difference. I am so happy to say! WOW! Can not believe the difference, Life is normal even after being off the PPI for a year now. Tim eats his favorite foods Spaghetti and Pizza! Even to the point of over eating. To my Happiness we both sleep at night "
For those of you who have loved ones that you would like not to have side effects from PPI's, we are here to help you!
Tim's Research & Story
With so much information online about how to take care of our health, it can seem overwhelming to know what tools to use to make the biggest difference. Since using the most pure essential oils, we've found them to be incredibly powerful and helpful!
So, I want to tell you my story with Acid-Reflux and also talk about the long-term side-effects associated with (PPI's) Proton Pump Inhibitors. Lastly, I want to explain how there are alternatives to these drugs to counteract Acid-reflux, heartburn, and/or GERD.
15 years ago I was diagnosed with GERD and was prescribed by my doctor the PPI medication Omeprazole. To make matters worse, the doctors discovered I have a hiatal hernia which increases the likelihood of more acid being pushed up into the esophagus. So, of course I listened to my doctor, as we should, because the alternative was, if not treated correctly, a high risk of esophageal cancer. Not a good thing!
After a good friend told me PPI’s were not originally intended for long-term use, I wondered what the long-term side effects were. As you see in the video, they are potentially very dangerous especially if taken over a long period of time. A couple of warnings I failed to mention in the video are, according to drugdangers.com:
1- In 2010, concern was raised about a link between cardiac defects and PPI use. The FDA stated that there wasn’t a statistical link for humans but studies in animals have confirmed the risk. Additionally, there are doctors now warning their patients of the risks involved. One doctor has described how the Proton Pump Inhibitors do the job they are designed to do, stop acid in the stomach. However, the problem is there are other Proton Pumps in our bodies. What happens with these drugs is ALL Proton Pumps are inhibited, including the proton pumps that put mitochondria into our brains. So what happens when these pumps are shut down? Not only are we risking our cardiovascular system, we are also at risk for dementia down the road.
2- In 2016, researchers concluded that PPI use may prematurely “age” cells of the vascular system. This may contribute to age-related illness such as dementia, renal failure, cardiovascular disease and cancer, though no definitive connection had been made.
For further information check out a report done by the Journal of American Medical Association in November of 2017 entitled: “Further evidence to Monitor long-term Proton Pump Inhibitor use.”
Who thinks a friend or family member should be ok with these side effect risks? I for one do not think anyone should be taking long-term risks. Now, to be clear, there is a time and place for certain things. Omeprazole will definitely keep acid out of your esophagus and if we're dealing with ulcers that is a viable option for a short time. However, there are alternatives that many do not yet know about. I will talk about this a bit later.
My story actually starts quite some time ago when I tried to take myself off the medication for acid reflux. It was miserable to put it mildly. After I did some research I found out why. Taken from Goodrx.com it explains: “When you discontinue PPI’s there is a rebound gastric hyper-secretion in those who have been on them for prolonged periods of time.” Some experts say this could take between 4 weeks to 3 months to overcome. So then it made sense to me why I couldn’t break free from the medication.
My wife (Kim) around that time started using Essential Oils. If you’ve never heard of them, you’re not alone. I had never heard of them either. Growing up in a household where my mom was all about natural things, I was curious about these essential oils. However, my initial thought was, yeah they’re probably ok but I doubt they will work good enough to help me with my problems. I was skeptical, to be honest.
So here is where my story starts with essential oils. One night after dinner I had a severe stomachache and my wife prodded me to try an essential oil blend. I finally relented and Kim put one drop in my navel. Within a short time the pain and discomfort was substantially subsiding, almost totally gone. It was one of those “what just happened” moments.
Fast forward two months later. I made the decision to really put these Essential oils to the test. Could I take myself off the prescription medication and it actually work this time? For the first two weeks or so, I made sure to stay away from foods that I knew would create an issue including coffee. But about week three to four I really started testing it out. I started to drink one cup of coffee in the morning and had very little issue. Hallelujah! Don’t know about you all but I loves me a good cup of joe in the morning!. I’m happy to say the longer I take the Essential oil products the issue of acid reflux is less and less. In the past, when I took myself off the medication I couldn’t lay flat and I got very little sleep. Not so with the essential oils. I can lay flat and get a good nights sleep.
