    4. 4. Acid in Stomach is Important • It kills bad bacteria entering the body through the mouth ( like a sterilization tank ) • Controls proper pH for friendly bacteria to thrive and bad bacteria to die. • It begins the process of breaking down our food, especially protein. • If food is not properly digested, it becomes a toxin, irritates the lining of the digestive tract and causes inflammation. barb
    5. 5. What Causes Acid Reflux • Stress can increase stomach acid production • But it is just as likely that stress suppresses the digestive process to divert energy to your muscles and your brain in order to “ fight or flee”. .. Suppresses digestive enzymes and stomach acid. • Diets high in sugar and refined carbohydrates, soda pop, etc How to Test if the Problem is too Much or Too Little Acid 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a half glass of water on an empty stomach. If after 15 minutes, you feel no burning sensation , then the issue may be TOO LITTLE STOMACH ACID NOT TOO MUCH barb

    13. 13. Gluten Sensitivity & Celiac • Found in most grains especially wheat, oats, barley (not in rice, quinoa, corn, soy, millet ) • People with sensitivity develop antibodies to the digestive breakdown products of gluten… which create inflammation… that damage the villi … & allow bacteria and partially digestive products to get into the blood stream… which causes more inflammation , … • Celiac - -1 out of 100 have it; • 1 out of 4000 are ever diagnosed • Today’s wheat has 40 times the gluten level. barb

Wheat Belly William Davis, MD ( cardiologist) “ Since the introduction of dietary guidelines in the 1970’s calling for reduced fat intake, a strange phenomenon has occurred … Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before.” • Today’s wheat – genetically altered to provide greatest yield at lowest cost. ( 40X the gluten ) • Causes blood sugar to spike more rapidly than eating pure table sugar and has additive properties that cause us to ride a roller coaster of hunger, over-eating, and fatigue. barb “Wheat builds up fat in all the wrong places.” Associated with Diabetes, heart disease, celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis and dementia.
