I have problems with ingesting protein due to hypochlorydria.I get extreme fatigue afterwards,can't concentrate,nausea.What can i do about it?
I learned an hcl protocol that works really well for getting your body to start producing adequate levels, and not staying reliant on supplementation indefinitely. Here's how to determine your dosage: ten minutes into a meal with plenty of animal protein, take one hcl tablet. After ten minutes, if you don't feel a burning sensation in your digestive tract, take another. Repeat until you feel a burning sensation, then minus one is your normal dose for a protein meal. At some point when your body starts producing its own hcl, this dose will cause the burning sensation. Now take one away, and that's the new dose. Continue this process until you no longer need any supplemented hcl, because you've stimulated your body's production to adequate levels!
I would rule out any gastrointestinal issues via EGD first. If that all comes back negative, the doctors will prescribe a proton pump inhibitor for simple dyspepsia; refuse that. I would then try apple cider vinegar, 10-15 grams vitamin C and d-lymonene daily.
Lol i have high stomach acid after doing Paleo...now if I sometimes regurgitate (I'm young, I drink), I have horrible epigastric pain from the reflux. I also can digest and feel good (no food coma) even if I eat about 2 lbs of meat now...
