I never thought the issue could be low stomach acid, but I’m doing more research now and it seems like that could be the case. My doctors put me on Prevacid a while back and it made my issues 100x worse.
Would taking too much tums cause low stomach acid? I have eliminated diary, but it doesn’t seem to help.
At any rate, it’s pretty confusing not to have clear-cut answers on at least whether I have low or high stomach acid. 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.
Stress is particularly tough on our digestion. The body’s stress response diverts blood away from the digestive system and towards the muscles to prepare us for ‘fight or flight’. This may affect our stomach acid in one of two ways, either by increasing or decreasing production.

Hi, I’ve been having a lot of issues with my tummy of lately, no matter what type of food I am eating, my stomach is producing foul smelling gas and stools, also I am having a bad time absorbing proteins, also its making me really anxious, any help as to how I can get back to normal? Anyway, my friend once advised me to try “Fruit elimination” period for several weeks to reduce the amount of fructose coming in and it is because the stomach is supposed to be an acid tank. She also added that supplementation would be a great help, forskolin has an active chemical that initiates a chain reaction that cause fat cells to release their energy and melt away. I hope that it works to me, but still I want a recommendation from you all.
Protein stimulates stomach acid production, and protein and fats stimulate the gall bladder to dump bile into the small intestines. Good fats also are needed by the liver in order to produce bile. Eat starches/carbohydrates with vegetables, but eat fruit alone – not with meals.
It’s thought that the mother is rich in enzymes, proteins, and pectin. Because of this, organic varieties are considered the gold standard when used to treat health conditions, such as acid reflux. While this test is great for gaining insight into stomach acid levels, it is not the most scientific method and cannot be accurate enough to rule out low stomach acid completely.
