The War On Stomach Acid

The War On Stomach Acid

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is what Americans think of as acid indigestion. What a misnomer! The pharmaceuticals love it because it provides for a trillion-dollar worldwide market for antacids. There are thousands of antacids under as many names.

“Acid indigestion” is very painful, and people are easily attracted to what they believe is the quick relief of antacids. Sad! Because antacids and proton pump inhibitors (the purple pill) block the first major step in digestion.

We are created with hydrochloric acid and pepsin in our stomachs to digest our food and provide nutrition to our bodies. Hydrochloric acid and pepsin are the basis of nutrition and health.

Stomach pH is very acidic, as low as pH 1 to 2, whereas the rest of the human body is about 7.3 or slightly alkaline.

“Acid indigestion” is caused, not by too much acid, but by a lack or shortage of hydrochloric acid — something the marketers of antacids will never tell you.

There is a whole new world of relief from “acid indigestion” with something as simple as having lemon juice with meals. Give it one to two days. And, yes, I cured my own acid indigestion with a teaspoon of sea salt in a glass of water for a few days. My son did the same.

Of course, your friendly cardiologist will blow a gasket when he hears this, but he loves his ignorance.

Millions upon millions live a life of discomfort when they are so close to relief. If we kill our stomach acid with antacids, we will ultimately wind up with stomach cancer. The medical community is mostly ignorant of this.

To learn more about hydrochloric acid, read the books Acid and Alkaline by Herman Aihara, Alkalize or Die by Dr. Theodore A. Baroody and Three Years of HCl Therapy.

The book, Three Years of HCl Therapy is no longer in print. It currently sells on Amazon.com for as much as $51. It contains documented cases of HCl therapy success stories in treating diseases and conditions like diabetes, pneumonia, malaria, meningitis, toxemia and many others.

We currently have a limited number of these books, and you can have a copy for free by clicking here.
