I should mention one of the reasons I suspected I had poor stomach acid production. Off and on, for the last decade or so, I'd periodically have this persistent, gnawing hunger in my stomach, even after I had just eaten. In fact, sometimes it would literally get worse after I ate. That symptom had gotten a lot worse the last year or so, happening more frequently, sometimes for days at a time. After some searching, and ruling out a couple of other causes, I found that this is a common symptom of low stomach acid! I'm happy to report, that the HCL/pepsin therapy seems to have taken care of that annoying symptom, or at least knocked it way down.
If you or anyone you know, has heartburn or ANY other digestive issues, I strongly encourage you to read this book. It is a real eye-opener. The ONLY thing I will say, is that, in the book he mentions they don't really know why people with low stomach-acid production experience heartburn, but that they observe clinical improvement when acid production is improved. From what I've read elsewhere, we DO know why: if stomach acid is deficient, food sits in your stomach and ferments, which creates gas. That gas carries particles of the stomach acid upward, to the GE sphincter, and irritates it, causing the heartburn. But that's just a side-note and doesn't warrant taking away a star for this book. Great stuff
You might not have the same result, but read this book before (or after) you go on acid reducers or PPIs to cut down on acid. It may be the opposite of what you need! Make an informed decision. Doctors are advertised to, sold to, and pushed by drug companies to use drugs to solve everything.
By the way, yes, at one point I had some acid reflux problems. But I fixed that by losing weight, changing to a low-carbohydrate diet, and eating supper 3 hours before bed. Now I'm healthier in many ways.
