Is There a Simple Treatment for GERD and Sleep Apnea?
It’s well known that being as little as 20 pounds overweight increases gastrointestinal disorders including GERD and sleep apnea. What is not well known is that a simple treatment is available.
My husband (ex now) at 30 pounds overweight suffered from sleep apnea and GERD. He finally was becoming so exhausted from lack of sleep that he visited his doctor who promptly prescribed Prilosec. I didn’t like the idea of a monthly prescription that was going to cost over $100 (Prilosec is now sold OTC (over the counter) so insurance doesn’t help pay the expense), so I wanted to find an alternative. What I found astounded me.
I have long received a magazine called Life Enhancement and remembered seeing something in there about GERD and H. pylori (Helicobacter pylori) so I went to find that information again and there it was. A simple, inexpensive remedy called Bye-Lori. I immediately ordered some for him. He had been taking Prilosec for several months, but after one bottle of Bye-Lori he never again refilled the Prilosec prescription. He also lost 30 pounds without struggle after having carried the extra weight for several years.
Did I mention the best benefit of all? He no longer snores! He used to sound like a fog horn and keep me awake half the night.
Most doctors will prescribe drug therapy for GERD (and anything else) at a high cost to your pocketbook. In some cases merely losing 20 pounds can eliminate the problem, but meanwhile drugs such as Prilosec offer relief at a cost of over $120 a month:
Brand name Prilosec, .20mg, 28 caps, $124.95
Generic Prilosec, 20mg, 56 caps, Only $77.90
An alternative known as Bye-Lori is just $31.49 per month. Bye-Lori by Life-Enhancement can not only help, it can eliminate the bacteria.
H. Pylori and Weight Loss Surgery Patients
Weight loss surgery (WLS) candidates have a high incidence of H. pylori (Helicobacter pylori) infection. As the complication rate from WLS is so high (some estimates are as high as 1 death in 50, others 1 death in 1000) wouldn’t it make sense to give yourself every chance at a healthy intestinal system?
