In this video, we look at how one can use Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) to wean off of the use of acid blocking drugs.
Studies show that longterm use of acid blocking drugs can cause other health problems. Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) such as Prilosec can increase incidence of kidney disease, dementia, pneumonia, bone fractures, esophageal, gastric cancer and more.
PPIs also block autophagy. Autophagy is the body’s way of clearing out damaged cells and replacing them with newer, healthier cells. Autophagy via intermittent fasting, nutraceuticals, and certain drugs is what the FLCCC recommends as a first line intervention in our I-RECOVER protocols to decrease spike protein for Long COVID and Post-Vaccine symptoms.
Steps to use ACV to wean from acid blockers:
Remove triggers from your diet that may trigger increased acid production. A food diary may help to identify these triggers.
Remove heavily processed foods and bad fats like processed vegetable oils, high sugar foods, poor quality dairy, and most grain-based foods.
Go slow, reduce the dose in half and gradually wean off as you add the apple cider vinegar. Make sure when you choose an apple cider vinegar that it has the mother in the jar (the fermented contents). The apple cider vinegar solution should contain the following: 1-2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and 4-8 oz of water. Use this mixture before your meals and if you find that you are having a feeling of increased acid. Some people have difficulties with this process and should stop if acid becomes worse.
Have patience with the process. It can take some people months to wean off acid blockers.
Tip: Taking a teaspoon of baking soda with water is a natural antacid and can help with the weaning process.
