Low Stomach Acid, The Great Paradox

April 24, 2012 by  

The idea of too much stomach acid is a great paradox. Why? Because the symptoms of low stomach acid give a signal and symptom of high stomach acid or high acidity.

Millions of people take antacids because they believe they have too much stomach acid when, in fact, they need hydrochloric acid (more acid). This paradox was made to order for the drug houses, which have cashed in big time. There’s no telling how many varieties of antacids are on the market. What a hellacious profit market based on a total lie and fabrication!

Betaine Hydrochloride with pepsin is the only acid our bodies make, and it is specific for the stomach and whole body health.

Antacids suppress production of natural stomach acid and ultimately lead to stomach cancer. The pharmaceutical companies get richer and richer because they sell the people on believing that they have “acid indigestion.”

Sea salt with its more than 50 minerals is a wonderful relief and therapy for “acid indigestion.” I take 1/4 teaspoon daily in water. I had high blood pressure and drank the salt water anyway.

And now the high blood pressure is long gone. But, dear friend, I must tell you to “see your doctor” on this.

    Or you could use organic vinegar ( as needed ) and skip the doctor…..

  • walkthewark

    I like the sound of both fixes, sea salt and organic vinegar, how does one administer the vinegar, because that’s not a nice taste, to me at least? BTW, I’ve tried two herbal courses, both were absolutely useless, so reader’s should be aware of these “peddlars” of every solution know to man (or woman), they charge plenty, but deliver nothing. I wonder who oversees these “alternative medicine” manufacture’s?

    • GALT

      A table spoon should do it……organic is not as strong as non…..but you can always dilute it with water……or better olive oil……..or mix the two and use it as a dip for bread…..

      it is not a constant problem for me……..usually triggered when I eat stuff using tomato sauces…….but if you are constantly dealing with this………end the meal with a small lettuce only salad, with the above.

      Dear walkthwark,

      You can also use apple cider vinegar. Add about a teaspoon to 4 oz. water. If you don’t like the taste, add a little honey.

      Best wishes,

      Herbs do not rebuild stomach flora — you should have known better.

      • Connie D.

        No one mentioned Herbs. Unless you consider vinigar an herb???

          Now I have been taking a coconut oil gel capsule every day for over a month. Maybe I should take it before bedtime. That is when I hear the sounds the most. I always just thought it was nerves. My grandmother had those stomach sounds too

      • walkthewark

        How am I supposed to know better, duhh! – that’s why I’m on this forum. These peddlars are people like Health Resources i.e.
        Hence my point about who controls these peddlars of every “emedy” known to man?

  • Josey

    Lemon Juice seems to work well too.

  • Flo

    What about the gurlilng or noises in stomach after eating certain foods?? It drives me crazy.
    P S my doctor tells me to take OMEPRAZOLE 20 mg.
    Would baking soda do?

    I have taken the bentaine hydracloric acid pills befor and they work. Few minutes after ya take them it’s gone, acid reflux that is. I can drink a Arizona tea, Love them, and befor i get it down I’m Hurting. Drinks with citric acid tear me up. At night I’ll wake up with the sound of spitting in a hot skilet in my throat. Guess that is the acid comming up, kind of like putting water in acid, wrong, ya don’t want to do that. Drink lots of water and that helps a little, but it is hard to clear that out of your throat. Anyway 2 bentaine hydracloric tablets and a few minutes it is gone. I ran out and got to get some more, but having trouble finding them.

      Addresses the causes of stomach and intestinal indigestion and not just the symptoms.

      Contains protein-digesting enzymes and hydrochloric acid, which assist with the breakdown of protein into amino acids. Carbohydrate breakdown is enhanced with amylase, and dietary fats are digested with support from lipase and dehydrocholic acid. These digestive agents promote healthy, stress-free digestion and optimum nutrient availability.

    What is so sad is the fact that some people go to medical school, but they never get the science via prostitution connection. If there is anything that is truly unscientific in Amerika, it’s the stomach acid charade.

    • Kerry

      …because more money can be made selling drugs than selling food, and the pharma industry has the marketing budget to make you believe anything they want you to believe — like, for instance, that Tums will supply your daily value of calcium….what a crock.

  • AZ-Ike

    Not entirely on topic, but a few months ago you wrote that eating an apple before retiring at night would clear up potential and actual acid reflux/heartburn. I had been taking antacids for years, and although I didn’t think it would work, tried it anyway.

    I am so thankful for your advice. Eating an apple (even 1/2 apple) works better than antacids ever did. I haven’t taken antacids since trying the apple.

    Thank you.

    Take a tablespoon of coconut oil each day- it works. I did also use a betain Hydrochloric acid supplement in the beginning and that was also very good. However, don’t eat white bread and you will improve straight away.

  • Flo

    I told my doctor I was scared ot Statin drugs. Here is his answer, “would I give you anything that would hurt you?” So I am almost afraid he will kick me out of his practice if I challenge him. I quit taking those once a week things for you bones because I heard you can get fractures from them. He did not like it, but I fibbed a little, and said I had been taking them for ten years. So he said, oh wwell, dont want you to take them any longer than that.

    Stomach acids can be quite temperamental sometimes and when the acid levels are very high it can really give you some nasty stomach ache. **“,
