Lansoprazole & diet patches

I take 1 15mg Lansoprazole every morning.  I've recently started a patch diet which has Fucus Vesiculosus Extract, 5HTP, Guarana, Zinc Pyruvate, Yerba Mate, Flaxseed Oil, Lecithin, L-Carnitine and Zinc Citrate.

Will the diet patches cause the Lansoprazole to no longer work as I'm suffering from acid sickness again?  I'm also asthmatic.

Well at least your diet patches will be effectively absorbed as they bypass the stomach.  Low stomach acid = poor absorption of nutrients = ill health. Low stomach acid is also the most common cause of non obstructive acid reflux conditions.

Excerpt from Digestive Health, Stomach Acid & Enzyme by Jon Barron:

"The bottom line here is that most people are very confused about the role stomach acid plays in health. Most people:

Think they have too much, when in fact they have too little.
Treat the symptom and suppress stomach acid production, ultimately leading to long-term health problems.
Ultimately lose the capacity to produce sufficient stomach acid as a result of dietary abuse and continual use of medications to suppress the body's ability to produce it.

Don't get into that trap.

Use digestive enzymes with all your meals.
Drink aloe vera juice.
Use probiotic supplements with confidence.
Use proteolytic enzyme supplements with confidence.
And, if needed, use apple cider vinegar or betaine hydrochloride supplements to make up for stomach acid insufficiency."

Excerpt from Puristat - Low Stomach Acid:

"Conditions linked to low stomach acid include:

Autoimmune diseases
Chronic candida
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)
Chronic hepatitis
Chronic hives
Dry skin
Gallbladder disease
Gastrointestinal (GI) infections and parasites
Reduced night vision
Rheumatic arthritis
Thyroid disorders
Type I and II diabetes
Vitiligo (a skin disorder characterized by white patches or spots)
Weakened hair, nails, and skin"
