Welcome to my blog!
In Chinese Medicine we always say that if the gut is healthy then you are absorbing your food properly and gaining the nutrients from the food to feed your body and cells. These proper nutrients then bolster the qi.
I have noticed that many of my patients are on acid stopping meds or antacids; in fact these meds are the #1 selling drugs in the US.
The main reason that people have “acid indigestion” or “acid reflux” is not too much acid but too little acid.
When we eat food in a stressful situation (sympathetic nervous system function) the food sits in stomach and decays and dosen’t go down the digestive tract. This undigested food comes back up and this is acid reflux.
If the adrenals are challenged the stomach mucosa is
not regenerated properly and this causes gastritis not excessive acid production.
Acid stopping meds help but overtime there is another host of problems that develop.
These problems are progressive malabsorption and malnutrition, progressive toxicity, less ability for aseptic function like fighting parasites, and low acid in stomach. This creates a problem of inability to absorb protein which leads to osteoporosis. Through a proper protocol you can wean off the meds and restore your stomach to health.
