No More Bloat! Found An Answer!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was trying to figure out why I was swelling up more and more as the day went on. I looked pregnant and felt awful! I've been gluten-free for almost 3 weeks and was doing great then BAM - balloon!

So I did some research. (TONS actually)

Turns out low stomach acid is the culprit. It is incredibly common in Celiacs.

I got some HCL tablets and took one 20 min. after a meal. The next meal I took 2. Last night I did not get very bloated.

I am hoping today is even better because I only took the pills twice.

I HIGHLY recommend anyone with stomach bloat, burping, gas, and pain look into hydrochloric acid. Not producing enough is called hypochlorhydria. A lot of people get a burning sensation and take ant-acids, but low stomach acid has exactly the same symptoms as too much stomach acid! So taking antacids can make things so much worse.

I am so relieved - physically and psychologically.

Here are a couple of information links:



I am so excited to have this resolved.
