Alkaline Diet and Supplements for Dry Eyes
I just bought your book. pH-Balanced for Life. I have been following your recommended diet and ph remedies. I have a few questions. I have been going to a naturopathic doctor (he does not have a degree but he has practiced for a few years) and he told me I was deficient in HCL acid even though my urine was very acid at the time 5.5. Do I continue my Betaine Hcl (2 with every cooked meal) and continue to follow all the recommendations in your book for alkalizing my ph?
2. I wrote to you a few years ago and you kindly answered my questions. At that time and even now I suffer from dry eye and mouth. I have realized over the years that acids ( apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, hcl) improve the moisture but bases like sodium bicarbonate, magnesium, calcium all make them drier. Do you understand why that works that way for me? If I take the lemon and sodium bicarbonate or acv and sodium bicarbonate they improve also, but it must be mixed with an acid.
3. Also, I have realized that my liver plays a role in the dryness because they are always the most dry in the middle of the night and I always feel like my liver is creating pressure on my side and sometimes painful. I am also taking lecithin per your recommendations.
4. I also wanted to know your thoughts on a parasite cleanse. My naturopath told me I should do a parasite cleanse but I had C-diff a few years ago for a year and it was very hard to get rid of and I am anxious about killing off my good bacteria.
5. I have some old fillings underneath a bridge and I am not sure if they are amalgam or not because the dentist who put them in years ago is retired. Is it still ok for me to take iodine, cilantro, etc. to chelate the heavy metals?
I would so appreciate your advice because I have a lot of faith in your knowledge and experience. Now when I get sick, I turn to Earth Clinic to research your remedies and they always work for me. I don't know if you realize how many people you have helped along the way.
