How Plaquex Works for GI Dysfunction

IV Plaquex therapy is a successful treatment for GI Dysfunction.  Plaquex therapy can improve the gastric lining even after the damage has occurred. After receiving IV Plaquex therapy gastric patients with gastrointestinal issues (GI Dysfunction) have reported many improvements.

What Causes GI Dysfunction?

GI dysfunction varies and can have many different causes. For example:  

  • Hereditary traits
  • Lifestyle
  • Medications
  • Nutrition
  • Other illness
  • Many other reasons

Syptoms also vary and can cause a lot of discomfort and pain.

Plaquex Protects the Gastric Lining

Plaquex can protect the gastric lining from the effects of NSAIDs. NSAIDs are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These are commonly prescribed to treat conditions, such as arthritis because they relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

Although NSAIDs work well to inhibit pain, common side effects may include gastric problems such as heartburn, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Prolonged use of NSAIDs may eventually lead to ulcers and internal bleeding.
