came across an article on the internet about low stomach acid. ( soz cant share coz im rubbish with computers) the title if anyones interested is- the uk cenrre for living foods-the acid test by philip weeks
it basically says if your acid is low it can cause symptoms like acne rosacea, eczema,food sensitivities,bloating,excessive or lack of appetite,anaemia,weak nails, thinning hair.
the test to check is drinking water with 1/2 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda in it first thing in the morning before eating. then check when you start burping.
1-2 mins - normal levels
2-3 - low levels
3-5 - very low levels
5 mins or more - potentially no hcl
well i did it for 3 days and didnt burp at all!! just got a bit of indigestion about 2 hours later.
so what do any of you think? is this a load of rubbish or what? it would explain a lot to me if its true - its something i could take to the docs and get them to test me for anyway.
would appreciate your views on this .ta!
