Morning Acid Causes Dry Retching

Posted by Herbert (New Zealand) on 10/18/2006

I was diagnosed with reflux in 1982 i was given tablets call gaviscon. this never helped. i have lived with this for many years and in the last 3 years it has taken its toll. i have been to the hospital and had a camera sent down to check things out, but could not find any thing. i have had a boremial swallow which showed alot of reflux. I was given losec. this did not help. the problem that i have is when i wake in the morning acid trys to come up which causes me to dry retch, it has got so bad now that i have drink a glass of water to to actually bring up. it has knocked me about and makes me very tired and making me very stressed. just by chance i had some mylanta which made me feel alot comfortable and relaxed that only lasted a day and now um back to square one. Is there anyone out there that has had the same experience with the dry reaching and if so what cures have you used.

Dear Herbert: Acid reflux can have a number of causes, you can find the cause by simply measuring your salivary pH and urine pH, where it should be about 7-7.49 and 6.5 - 7.3 respectively. Simple lemon juice and baking soda would resolve that issue. However, yours seem to have a fungus or microscopic organism eating up your system. In this case a simple 50 mg. of zinc acetate, 25 mg. of manganese chloride and perhaps 25 mg. of sodium molybdate should help. Of course many will not get the needed supplements.

Therefore the easiest way around this problem is just to buy a good sea salt (gray or light brown color) that are somewhat moist or slightly wet and add this 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt to your drinking water and just take one teaspoon of fulvic acid. This should kill the organism and if taken often enough the problems should be reduced by half.

There are many fine points at which I simply don't have enough information on you. But anyway just take licorice extract 1 tablespoon for only a week and take some 5-6 drops of 3% H2O2 food grade in one glass of water and a small amount of borax 1/8 teaspoon per liter of water should kill the yet unidentified nanobacteria or other parasitic bugs.

Their major food source is heavy metals and sugar. So a remarkable simple way is to do oil pulling (but I call it oil chelation), which is simply swishing your mouth in the morning with 1 tablespoon of sunflower oil for example and doing it several time. This will remove the heavy metal being the food source. Most vegetable oils tend to sponge up the heavy metal oils quite well. Fish oils and cod liver oils does it too, but I think taking a tablespoon of granulated lecithin on empty stomach does a better job of removing heavy metals indirectly by causing the heavy metals inside your body to be water soluble instead of forever circulating in your body without a way out.
