Acid Reflux is one of the most misdiagnosed conditions in this country. Doctors assume that patients with reflux are overproducing Hydrochloric acid in the stomach. In many cases the opposite is true; many patient with reflux are not producing sufficiently strong Hydrochloric acid.
pH plays an all-important role in how we handle and process foods to the nourishment of our bodies. In addition, Medications, which depend upon pH for release and absorption, have optimal effects within the Alimentary Tract under normal pH conditions. Virtually everything that we consume is converted and absorbed in the Small Intestine. Due to abnormal pH profiles in many patients, sustained-release Medications may tend to “dump,” or release Medicaments all at once or release very little. A normal, or near normal, pH Alimentary Canal profile is very beneficial for food processing and medication delivery.
