Products like Zantac and Pepcid AC are currently being studied for their potential in cancer treatment.
Scientists at Dalhousie University are investigating whether ranitidine and famotidine (known as Zantac and Pepcid AC) could help the body's immune system when fighting cancer. The scientists theorize that these ingredients could change the immune system so that it can slow the development of tumors.
The problem with this approach is that chemotherapy creates digestive problems, as itdamages healthy cells lining of the digestive system. Adding symptom-treating drugs on top of symptom-creating drugs is not doing an already weakened immune system any favours. In fact, as noted before, heartburn medications can block nutrient absorption, leading to a greater risk of bone fracture.
Hippocrates famously said, "All disease begins in the gut." Multiple studies have shown how gut health affects mental and physical health. A few examples are listed below:
The best way to heal the gut is by bringing it back into a balanced state of health and the first place healing is needed is within the gastrointestinal tract. The best method for restoring gastrointestinal health is by incorporating pharmaceutical quality therapeutic nutrients such as probiotics and digestive enzymes. Our Laktokhan Probiotic and Full Spectrum Digestive Enzyme are great tools in order to achieve optimal health.
