- Low Stomach Acid (or high PH)
Many people with digestive ailments are under the misconception they are OVER producing stomach acid, but in actual fact they are not producing ENOUGH stomach acid. The body’s natural ability to produce stomach acid / hydrochloric acid (HCI) is affected by certain pathologies like stress, nutrient deficiency and aging. Additionally, low levels of acid also allow certain bacteria such as H. pylori and E-coli to survive and proliferate inside the stomach.
- Stress – emotional, physical or mental
Digestion is dramatically impacted by stress. The body produces adrenaline and cortisol in reaction to stress. This is what is commonly termed the “natural fight or flight” reaction. Extreme stress causes the body to over-produce cortisol to counter these higher stress levels. Excessive cortisol hinders sleep patterns, digestion and metabolism, resulting in stomach disorders and weight gain. The body’s adrenaline response increases the heart rate and redirects blood from the digestive system to the muscular system. This results in an accumulation of undigested food and the build up of damaging gasses and alcohols.
Other causes of digestive disorders and damage to the mucosal lining include alcohol abuse, long term use of anti-inflammatory drugs and pain medication, all of which cause inflammation and erosion of the gastric mucosal lining which inhibit the secretion of digestive juices.
Healing benefits of The Other Option’s DIGESTIVE REMEDY

DIGESTIVE REMEDY has natural anti-inflammatory properties which strengthen and heal the inflamed or ulcerated lining of the oesophagus and stomach.
DIGESTIVE REMEDY naturally stimulates the release of digestive hormones which boost digestion and increase the absorption of nutrients.
DIGESTIVE REMEDY vs antacids, acid blockers and proton pump inhibitors (PPI’s)
The Other Option’s DIGESTIVE REMEDY naturally improves digestion by stimulating the release of digestive hormones. Antacids, acid blockers and PPI’s neutralize, reduce or block the release of stomach acids masking the symptoms in the short term. By neutralizing stomach acid, or stopping acid production altogether, the body is unable to absorb the vital nutrients essential for the normal functioning of our bodies. Without these nutrients and proper digestion, our brain, bones, immunity and nerve functions are all compromised.
