The doctors call it levator ani syndrome but they don’t know what to do. I stopped eating meat and I only eat vegetables and juices and I amsome better but I still have the same problem. Any help is greatly appreciated.
If so stop. The combination is bad if you suffer digestive issues. Please don’t eat fruit after a meal.
I’m an older female so it’s likely low but why then would my throat care, if it’s not acidic?. I just don’t get it. I have diabetes and was concerned that I might be experiencing symptoms of low stomach acid. I’ve experienced some of the aforementioned issues. Any thoughts would be welcomed.
I have paid so many naturopaths and Doctors a lot of money to help me but nobody has been able to. The allopathic Doctor’s gave me meds which seemed in the long run to ruin my gut more and the naturopaths gave me supplements that either I was allergic to or that had no effect. I have just started taking betaine along with a digestive enzyme before each meal on the advice of an RHN.
For more information on candida and how to treat it, see The Complete Candida Yeast Guidebook (Prima Publishing, 2000) co-written by Jeanne Marie Martin and myself.

Leads me to believe that low acid is more likely to be causing the bloat than too much acid. I also think some research could be done into all the above and the occurence of pylori bacteria in the gut.
Very, very likely by bringing stomach acidity to normal, which (when the stomach contents move into the small intestine) makes the small intestine more acid (which is normal). A marked hypochlorhydria was demonstrated in 75 per cent of this series of cases of rosacea. Definite clinical improvement followed the internal administration of dilute hydrochloric acid.
If you’ve answered yes to any of those questions, it’s likely that you are suffering from low stomach acid levels. These symptoms are good indications that your digestion is suffering. I wish I could point to some conclusive models or studies on what’s happening but I can’t. Unfortunately, all we have to go on are observations and theories. Appropriate stomach acid levels are crucial for our immune system and for adequate nutrient status, both of which support total health.
