This month’s Pharmaceutical Alert highlights the ongoing problems with PPIs, the Proton Pump Inhibitors. We wrote to you about the problems with these drugs more than a year ago, and finally the FDA is taking action, issuing a Warning Alert. We hope you will read through the following story and then take the appropriate action.

FDA Warning Alert on Proton Pump Inhibitors
What should you do?
Dr. Gersh has been extensively trained in all aspects of this important medical condition at her Integrative Fellowship at the University of Arizona. She works closely in this with Dr. Lee, our expert naturopathic doctor, whose training focused in great detail on the function and therapies of the digestive system. In addition, we have teamed with a highly qualified gastroenterologist who will be available to perform upper GI endoscopies when clinically indicated prior to the weaning-off process. Once a patient is off these dangerous drugs, we can offer many natural and safe ways to alleviate, or even eliminate, heartburn, gastritis, and other such conditions.Please share this information with your many friends and family who are using these medications. And if you are interested in getting off of your drug, please contact the office.
