Seeking Ted's Help For Acid Reflux
How are you? I wrote to you in 2012 and your reply actually predicted my future health woes. You advised me to take hydrochloric acid for my constipation. I hesitated to use betaine because I have a small kidney stone and was told to stay away from beets because they are high in oxalates. You also talked about low stomach acid and the possibility of a bacterial infection. My last blood test showed that I am borderline h pylori.
I am writing you because I am suffering from severe acid reflux. I do not have burning in my chest but I get a sour taste in my mouth and burning on my lips. I have tried many different supplements but to no avail. I do not want to use proton pump inhibitors because of the dangerous side effects.
Please advise me. I need your help desperately. Should I take hydrochloric acid in spite of the kidney stone? Do you think the acid reflux was caused by low stomach acid? I truly value your advice.
