Hello, Week and began taking them to help with my GERD and SIBO I just picked up some Betaine HCl last. I’m a 30 y/o male with a history of extensive antibiotic use and corticosteroid use from a (thankfully) self-limiting autoimmune illness about 5 years ago.
During an emergency room visit for her symptoms, she had a normal computed tomography scan, was diagnosed with anxiety-related gastroesophageal reflux, and was given a prescription for PPIs. She did not receive any education or material related to nutritional support. A quick search on the web shows several good companies selling Betaine HCL, including Enzymedica, Source Naturals Now Foods, etc. Capsule sizes are varied – 500mg, 648mg, etc., so check with the source. Follow their recommended dosage guidelines Also.
Thank you for your quick response. Week to further discuss this I am seeing my doctor next. I fired my last doctor who told me to take PPI’s. I had the good sense to refuse. I wish more practitioners were more educated about low HCL levels.
. There is a difference between nourishing and feeding ourselves. . Everything you eat and drink affects your health in some real way. Having a diet full of fruits, legumes, (c)lean proteins, legumes, nuts, and seeds.
In nearly all these folks, symptoms have been relieved and digestion improved when they’ve taken supplemental hydrochloric acid and pepsin capsules. Try supplementing with hydrochloric acid (HCL), which is the main digestive acid in the stomach. I’ve found that most symptoms of GERD disappear with HCL supplementation. If you’re unsure of how much to take, you can set up a wellness coaching session with our nutritionist, who can design a plan specifically for you.
1. Chew your food
hello, after i eata bit, i get the feeling i’m full , i have heartburn ,difficulty and bloating to burp though i feel there is gas in my stomach .when i eat i get nausea . i can even see some undigested food in my stool . i feel very weak as if i havent eaten for days also .
Thanks for any help…I have felt a whole lot better eating this way and only seem to have issues when eating certain wheat/sugary items. I’m still trying to figure it all out…I’ve been told years ago that I have IBS and GERD and a nutritionist said I have digestion problems and put me on a digestive enzyme…I have weaned myself off of my supplements and only take Juice Plus supplements and have started back on a probiotic called Dophilus (sp?) Plus…I had been taking it for many years and decided to stop taking it thinking I wouldn’t need it eating Vegan…I was only off of it for a few weeks then decided to go back on it after reading something that made me think I should stay on it…then I read your article about what certain probiotics can do if I do have low stomach acid…I order my supplements from LifeSourceVitamins which I’m very thankful to have learned about a couple years ago…very reputable and helpful company!
While everyday stress may not have much effect on the production of stomach acid, chronic stress can contribute to hypochlorhydria. An individual with hypochlorhydria is unable to produce enough hydrochloric acid (HCL) in the stomach.
A lot of the cause and effects of this condition matched what I was going through. So I went to a store and bought some Solaray HCL with pepsin. One pill has 650MG HCL with 129MG pepsin I believe. I tried some with a somewhat heavy meal.
With the diet, you’ll want to consider using separate digestive enzymes and HCL rather than a combination product like Zypan, which will be more powerful. My acid reflux is gone though after the 6 week elimination diet. First, I’m not sure why anyone would tell you your symptoms would get worse with pregnancy. For many people, pregnancy alleviates digestive symptoms.
Write a diary to check how your symptoms will change. I believe you should be fine. You just need to find the appropriate dosage of Betaine HCl with pepsin and pancreatic enzymes. I don’t have heartburn any more.
When your stomach acid levels aren’t where they should be, your system will struggle to absorb essential minerals and proteins, which can lead to deficiencies. Likewise, stomach acid is responsible for killing harmful bacteria enzymes that enter your system. Are you dealing with health problems that disrupt your digestion? The problem might be called hypochlorhydria – or low stomach acid. While your stomach is an organ that can withstand harsh treatment, you’re sure to notice as as it stops working soon.
