Good nutrition starts when we decide to consume nutritious food, but the story does not end there– that’s just the beginning. The key to health is good nutrition and good absorption from a balanced diet. When the diet is lacking, disease stressors occur. Without correction, this eventually leads to a diseased body.
Heart Disease, Cancer, Diabetes and other chronic ailments – just to list a few diseases- can all be traced to nutritional deficiencies. Armed with this knowledge, an increasing number of people are taking a proactive approach to their health by eating whole foods, choosing organic grown or raised, and selecting healthy oils/fats. Proper nutrition is leading to happy, healthier longevity in the population as a whole.
The Problem, Weak Stomach Acids
Most Medical doctors believe the hype of marketing companies which promote the notion that an acidic stomach is something that needs to be managed with pharmaceutical medicines. This creates a condition known as achlorhydria (low stomach acid) and goes complete opposite to their training in biochemistry.

Discomfort 0-2 Hours after Eating
The health transit time out of the stomach is about 2 hours. With that concept in mind if you experience any of the following symptoms you might not be breaking down your food properly:
- Acid Indigestion
- Intolerance To Certain Foods (Get Gassy When Eating Certain Foods)
- Food Allergies
- Unable To Take Supplements Without Digestive Upset
- Frequent Belching,
- Feeling Full And Feeling Like The Food Just Isn’t Moving Along After Eating
- Frequently Taking Antacid Drugs
Gastro-Esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)
Deficiencies in the Production of Stomach Acids creating a weak pH
Some people actually have a condition known as achlorhydria, in which a person produces low or no stomach acid. Low stomach acid levels can be genetic or acquired. Food components that should be digested and absorbed in the upper intestines, when not processed properly; pass through into the lower intestines providing fuel for harmful micro-organisms, therefore increasing the numbers. Low stomach acid causes gastrointestinal overgrowth of pathogens, malabsorption of minerals, vitamins and amino acids, and food sensitivities. Most alternative practitioners believe that this condition is relatively common, particularly in people who demonstrate:
- Acne Rosacea
- Addison’s Disease
- Gum Inflammation And Receding Gums (Periodontitis)
- (Both Rheumatoid Arthritis And Osteoarthritis)
- Increased Risk Of Heart Attack
- Intolerance To Certain Foods
- Brittle Nails
- Lupus Erythematosus
- Celiac Disease
- Pernicious Anemia
- (Too Little Vitamin B12)
- Thyroid Disease
- Tic Douloureux,
- Fingernails Crack Easily
- Vitiligo (a disorder that causes depigmentation of patches of skin)
- Pylori Infection (Ulcer)
Other Symptoms and Causes of Weak Stomach Acids
The effectiveness of drugs which suppress stomach acid is creating an epidemic of malabsorption of nutrients, increasing the need to use vitamin and mineral supplements, and encouraging the use of antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial drugs. This epidemic can be stopped by allowing the body’s pH to be corrected through proper supplementation.
Potentially harmful micro-organisms present on food are sterilized by our stomach’s pH. Thus reducing our risk of being colonized by harmful micro-organism we all experience daily. Proper pH in the stomach helps leach minerals from the food we ingest, such examples being calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc.
