Stomach Acid and Parasites!



Why is strong stomach acid is essential for addressing parasites?



If you don’t have strong, healthy levels of stomach acid (HCl) then parasites and other pathogens (like viruses, candida, bacteria, etc) can easily get overgrown and wreak havoc on your body! Stomach acid is your FIRST line of defense against parasites and other pathogens; so when you are exposed to these things, your stomach acid should destroy them! 


Low stomach acid is called hypochlorhydria and unfortunately, low stomach acid is very common…in fact, when I run bio energetic testing on my clients, over 80% of them have very low stomach acid (including children)!!


The human stomach should have a PH of less than 3. When the stomach doesn’t produce enough acid, then key nutrients and proteins can’t be absorbed. This can lead to nutritional deficiencies. Having low stomach acid also makes it very difficult for your body to break down your food, which can cause the food to sit in your stomach (going rancid), which causes bad bacteria to build up. Stomach acid is responsible for killing harmful bacteria and pathogens, so low stomach acid can leave you more vulnerable to diseases and health issues. 


Signs on low stomach acid are almost always misdiagnosed as “too much stomach acid” in traditional western medicine. The symptoms of low stomach acid are the same as symptoms of “too much stomach acid.” When a person goes to their doctor for symptoms of heartburn, ulcers, acid reflux, and GERD; they are usually told to take over the counter antacids, or they are prescribed proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) or prescription antacids.


These medications are one of the WORST things to take, as they decrease your natural stomach acid even more, which allows parasites and other pathogens to take over. In addition to that, these medications increase your risk of cancer, make it difficult for your body to break down and absorb the nutrients from the foods you eat,  PLUS, they deplete nutrients like iron, B12, copper, Vitamin A, folate, calcium, Vitamin C, and more!!


It’s estimated that over 113 million prescriptions for PPIs and antacids are written every year! This is a recipe for disaster and most people are completely unaware of the harm it’s causing them!





What causes low stomach acid?



*Aging (we naturally produce less as we get older, which makes it even more important to address for those over 40)


*Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs), like omeprazole, pantoprazole, etc….studies show that taking a PPI for just a few weeks reduces stomach acid levels by 75-95%!!!!


*Over the counter antacids, like Tums, Prilosec, Nexium, Pepto Bismol, etc


*A disregulated nervous system (from things like unresolved part trauma, life stress, work stress, stressful life events, etc)


*Processed foods and high sugar intake


*Antibiotic use and other prescription medications


*Eating too quickly, eating on the go, or eating when you’re stressed out


*Thyroid issues 


*Exposure to toxins, like EMFs, mold metals, chemicals, glyphosate, etc


*Stealth infections, like parasites, Lyme disease, root canals, breast implants, etc


*Nutritional deficiencies


*Gluten intolerance and other food sensitivities/allergies


*Chronic illness





Symptoms of Low Stomach Acid:

*Leaky gut/SIBO

*Skin issues/Dry Skin/Rashes/Acne

*Fatigue

*Anxiety

*Weak hair and nails

*Hair loss

*Bloating shortly after meals

*Belching or gas shortly after meals

*Not having an appetite, not feeling  hungry in the morning, or feeling better if you skip a meal




 How to Increase Stomach Acid:


*Eat slower, chew each bite a minimum of 20 times, try to chew your food until it’s liquified before swallowing, eat in a relaxed state, make your meals sacred, take a few deep breaths before each bite of food, and really take the time to enjoy and savor each bite (no eating on the go and no eating in front of the tv).


*Reduce your intake of processed sugar and processed foods. Nutrient dense sources of sugar are fine, like raw honey, 100% molasses, fruit, coconut sugar, etc.


*Address any possible nutritional deficiencies, by getting a micronutrient blood panel done by your doctor (not usually covered by insurance), or by having a bio energetic scan done by me. Click here for more info on bio energetic testing, or reach out to me privately!


*Address food allergies, or food sensitivities, by getting tested (bio energetic scans can show these, as well).


*Address underlying parasites, or stealth infections (bio energetic scans can show if these are resonating with you).


*Talk to your doctor, or Practitioner about weaning off your antacid medications and avoid all over the counter antacids.


*Eat probiotic-rich foods. like kimchi, sauerkraut, pickles, kefir, kombucha, miso, etc.


*Regulate your nervous system! Click here for the link to my FREE online course for regulating the nervous system!


*Address exposures to toxins, like EMFs, toxic beauty & cleaning cleaning, mold exposure, etc (click here to see my favorite things, or reach out to me privately about trusted sites for non/toxic cleaning/beauty products, mold testing, air filter, water filtration, etc).


*Try HCL supplements, Tudca, or ox bile supplements, under the advice of a knowledgeable Practitioner, or Doctor (ask me for brand recommendations and how to get them at a discount).


*Try digestive enzymes, or digestive bitters (ask me for brand recommendations and how to get them at a discount), or consume foods that are naturally high in digestive enzymes, like pineapple, papaya, mango, raw honey, bananas, kiwi, ginger, and avocados.


*Try raw, organic, apple cider vinegar with the mother in it, which is a natural digestive enzyme (1/2 teaspoon in 4 ounces of water before each meal. If the taste can’t be tolerated, there are apple cider vinegar capsules, or gummies I can recommend, that are easier on the taste buds; so reach out to me for brand recommendations and discounts).


*Consume more quality salt, like sea salt, Celtic, etc. A bit of salt in every glass of water you drink, or a bit of warm water with salt (and lime or lemon juice added) about 15-30 minutes before a meal will help to increase stomach acid!
