I have had that stomach problem as well. Your right about the HCl being too low. The reasons for it being low generally indicate a damaged stomach lining, usually precipitated by allergies. Animal protein will increase HCl production... (more)

I'm 24 YO female, I had been Paleo (to address my PCOS) for about 2 months and then fell off the wagon a couple of days back. Not that I'm craving my non-Paleo delicacies but that Paleo gave me an immense case of constipation and a bad acidity. I... (more)

Magnesium! It could be the link between your PCOS and constipation. Both are among the symptoms of magnesium deficiency.

Apple cider vinegar, the organic kind. You can also get it in tablet form. It will cure indigestion better than tums without skewing the acid balance in your system.

i have tried terramin clay for my digestive problems, but i never noticed any benefits from it. it also didn't hurt either. just had a placebo effect. it does have a lot of minerals though so it might be good to take it anyways.

You spiked your blood sugar (and therefore insulin) & are experiencing a blood sugar drop. No worries. It's normal if you've been low carb for awhile. Eat some protein and/or fat & you will feel better.
