Reading one of my clients blogs, prompted me to expand on this subject since it’s so common. I highly recommend her blog also:

As an insurance agent with hundreds of clients, I hear it almost every day – clients having tummy problems and are taking way too many antacids or the doctors are prescribing proton pump inhibitors (PPI’s).  What I found with most of these clients is, the after effect of eliminating the acid in the stomach seem to cause food to not be digested and nutrients to not be absorbed which then seem to then lead to a multitude of problems and diseases which need more prescription drugs.  Yikes!  It’s like a hamster on a wheel!   I found an extremely effective treatment, and it’s completely natural!  It was sooo simple too…my green drink!  I will say, I’ve educated hundreds of people about this and there are a certain group of people that will ONLY do what their Doctors say and won’t even TRY solving the problem naturally.

Here’s my story, after landing in the hospital in 2014 with diverticulitis (and totally by accident), I found relief for my occasional heartburn (and now many of my clients).   I’m not a Doctor by any stretch of the means however, I wasn’t getting any guidance from the medical community.  They just threw up their hands and said they really don’t know what causes it and to ‘stay away from nuts and seeds’.  What?  I love almonds and berries and they are good for me.  I researched and logically deduced that MY diverticulitis was caused by an acidic and severely inflamed gut.  I needed to adopt anti-inflammatory and alkaline lifestyle but juicing is too cumbersome and expensive (I have no time for that anyway).  My gut needed to be alkalized, not neutralized and I had to find a way to accomplish this, easily and conveniently.  Now, whenever I eat something that causes acid discomfort, I drink 1/2 of my normal green drink.  Within a few minutes, it’s GONE!  And, I’m putting good stuff in my body vs. chemicals.  As a side note, my gums don’t bleed any longer, I’m less bloated and I have more energy than I did in my 20’s!  I also found a green drink with ancient wheat grass and nothing artificial, just amazing nutrients!  Drinking one/day makes me feel incredible along with giving my body the nutrients we sorely lack in our food system today (which will be another blog).   I have told my own Doctors about my story and they just stare at me blankly and go on to another subject.  It’s like they don’t even care about nutrition.  Is this what we’ve come to?  BTW, I still eat berries and almonds almost every day and have NOT had another episode of diverticulitis!


Don’t take my word for it.  Research for yourself!   I highly recommend getting Dave Sandoval’s book, ‘The Green Foods Bible’.  This is what he says about acid:  “Green foods are loaded with an abundance of digestive enzymes, and they promote friendly bacteria and neutralize excess acidity.”  “If you have been relying on an antacid to treat the symptoms of poor digestion, they may have dangerous side effects; they suppress the production of gastric juices for hours at a time, interfering with digestion. Ultimately, the diseases caused by toxic undigested food far exceed the discomfort of gas.  Once again, green foods are the answer.”   My future self is thanking me every day that I found Dave’s book.  I refer to it almost daily for myself and my clients. 

Don’t settle for chemicals if you can solve the problem naturally.  As always, reach out to me if you’d like to learn more about how to live well past 100 or have any insurance questions.  Also, the company that makes my green drink gave me gift cards to share for your initial order.  Let me know if you’d like to try it for yourself!
