Taking Charge of Your Own Health

If you are ready to make the change and take charge of your own health then I will show you some ways that you can vastly improve your health, starting with the digestive system.

There is an old saying “Death begins in the colon” this could not be more true.

“Poor digestion can do more than give you a stomach ache or gas because digestion is the mechanism that makes your body work…a clog in the works may be only the tip of the iceberg. Chronic fatigue, premature aging, arthritis, poor skin and hair quality, toxicity, allergies, cancer, and many other diseases can all result from faulty digestion because poor digestion interferes with nutrient breakdown, absorption and metabolism; allows toxins to remain in the body and accumulate; and over-stresses the body.” Dr. Anthony Cichoke

One of the most common digestive problems is low hydrochloric acid (HCl). hydrochloric acid produced in the stomach breaks up protein, the beginning of protein digestion, and kills microbes (bacteria), effectively sterilizing food. The ability to manufacture HCl diminishes with age.

To test HCl levels start by taking 200-250mg with a solid meal. Take the HCl after you have eaten at least several mouthfuls of the meal. Take note of any increase feeling of warmth in your stomach. If after taking 200-250mg of HCl you get this warm feeling then you may not need to supplement with HCL however perform the test with 2-3 meals first. Also remember the size of the meal will affect the test. A salad is not quite the same and meat and potatoes.

If after 200-250mg of HCL you do not get any increase feeling of warmth in your stomach then increase the dosage to 400-500mg of HCL with your next solid meal. Continue to increase the dose by 200-250mg at each subsequent meal until you can feel warmth in your stomach.

Warning: DO NOT EXCEED 1500mg of HCL.

Once you’ve determined the dose that produces a warm sensation, you now know that similar sized meals require a dosage of 200-250mg less than that which created the warm sensation. You have now determined how much acid your body should be producing on its own, but isn’t. (i.e. the dose that you take with every meal.) Smaller meals might require less and larger meals might require more. You should immediately notice changes like a decrease in bloating, belching, and less indigestion.
