In my last post you saw that I was diagnosed with Silent Reflux and prescribed 40 mg of Prilosec (brand name) to take. I took it for one day! That day was the first day I had actual burn with heartburn😐…. so I called the doctor’s office and they said to get the over the counter version which is 20mg. 🤨. I had a better idea to try…. like figure out why I was having this Silent Reflux. After some days of researching I decided to add digestive enzymes to my diet (in capsule form)… was almost an immediate fix. Since then haven’t had much of an issue…. I think I’m on the way to getting better. It seems the gut flora was out of whack after having such a bad sinus infection. Who knows… we’ll see how things go over the next few weeks.
Anyway, along the way I ran across an article promoting the benefits of beet juice. Yeah, you either love beets or hate ‘me. I love them…. pickled, plain, canned, jarred, sliced, diced, Whole, Harvest, juiced… doesn’t matter to me. So the article caught my attention. I have a friend who says beets taste like ‘dirt’… so he said I bought dirt juice.😂
I had no idea of the awesome benefits. So I bought a jar. Given the not so good side effects you COULD have if you decided to chug a whole jar everyday I decided to drink it medicinally – about 4oz per day…2 in the morn and 2 in the afternoon. Tastes great to me! Anxious to see of any benefits. The article said some of the benefits are:
Regulate blood pressure
…and other good things…these three alone were enough for me to add it to my diet.
Here is a link for you to review the benefits of drinking beet juice.
If you decide to try it, let me know how you like it!🤗
