Low Stomach Acid April 2014

Oh but wait, there’s more….

My chiropractor, after mentioning to him about bloating after eating and drinking foods other than fish, chicken and vegetables, he said I may have low stomach acid or what’s called Achlorhydria. He tested a couple digestive enzymes and HCI and the hydrochloric acid (HCI) won! I started taking HCI with every meal and noticed the bloating was going down but not ultimately gone.

After researching low stomach acid, I found 80% of kids with asthma (I have it) also tend to have low stomach acid. In addition, the causes could also be attributed to hypothyroid, autoimmune diseases, alcohol and stress. Hummmm….maybe this is what’s causing all my problems! I was hopefully, yet again!
