I have recently been struggling with low stomach acidity (amongst other problems) and found the a one day and a half fast of coconut oil (12tbsps) and lemon juice reignited my appetite.
I would be interested in knowing what caused this and would recommend this as a possible solution to anyone else experiencing these problems. I now get acid reflux if I take betaine hcl, no burning however.
NSAIDS can wreak havoc on anyone's digestive system. Some suggestions for you, as you still have trouble with bloating, etc. You could get a blood test done by a naturopathic doctor for food sensitivities (different than allergies), as food intolerance is a common cause of bloating, even if your stomach acid is up to par.
You could also try taking an Iodine supplement, like Iodoral (2 tablets, 2x day for 6 mos). This was most effective in repairing my digestion issues (acid reflux, nausea, bloating, fluid retention, mood swings, etc.) Iodine deficiency is a commonly overlooked cause of acid reflux/low stomach acid. However, I find it most effective if I'm not eating gluten. Most wheat products contain bromine, which blocks the absorption of iodine.
I can't believe someone would suggest this is an eating disorder. It's a VERY common issues, one which even the commenter is likely to encounter at some point in his life, especially with age, when the hydrochloric acid in our stomach depletes.
Hi, I suffer with tremendous bloating after eating anything. Had an endoscopy that confirmed no gastritis or ulcers and the only thing I can think of is low stomach acid. When you were taking the hcl wrote this detox did you used to get acid reflux? Thanks.
All issues of digestion disorders begin in the stomache. Proper ph in your stomach is the be all end all Start with apple cider viniger a teaspoon or two first thing in the morning. Lemon juice in water is also a good beginning. Eating fermented foods beginning with yogurt also helps to restore important bacterias that are super important for reestablishing proper stomache fona
I had digestive issues for 20 years along with adrenal fatigue and many other things.
After trying literally everything what worked for me was:
• starting the Paleo diet
• doing a 3-week water fasting
• stopping the low-carb diet, reducing fibers (veggies) to the minimum and adding the safe starches (only yams) according to the PHD (Jaminet)
• using a bite for my teeth (by Michel Montaud) which helped me to breath better and changed my posture. This was a dramatic help. Bad breathing is one of the main reasons of digestive issues (although very few know it). When you diaphragm is not moving and working properly, your organs and stomach, pancreas, intestine don't move accordingly and function properly. I didn't know all this and thank God I found a great dentist who explained me this.
I'm pretty sure starving yourself in general would re-ignite your appetite.
Give me a solid study that proves starving your body of its necessary nutrients is healthy.Why are people always trying to find a shortcut to things.
Eat like a normal person and do more exercise. Trust me that'll re-ignite your appetite more than anything.
