just be aware too much of a good thing might not be such a good thing......messing with your PH levels is not the best route.

your diet plan already has the balance calculated, so try following that accordingly.

You might want to consider Flaxseed oil. You may have problems with producing the right enzymes etc... but it might also just be you need metabolism stimulation.

What kind of bicarbonate or soda do you take and how do you take it. Is it a powder like baking soda. Even though A's tend to have low stomach acid is this something we need to pay attention to.


I think acidosis is just individual to me.  I have reduced renal function and may even have renal tubular acidosis as I have this problem over and over even when eating lots of veg and fruit.   I have kidney damage I think from 2 months of leaking kidneys when I had preeclampsia when I was pregnant also a stupid asprin overdose I took as a clueless teenager!

I've read some books on integrated medicine and bicarbonate of soda (the kitchen powder yes) can be useful if your pancreas has trouble (it makes bicarb and digestive enzymes).  People with bad digestion are recommended to try it in small doses (1 teaspoon in a cup of water) when you have indigestion.  Some people need to take it, enzymes and HCL.

Beware though it contains lots of sodium and can make you go too alkaline, as Lola says balance is the key.

Quoted from Shelly


I thought lemon was alkaline once it reached the stomach, so I didn't bother.  Oranges are an avoid.  Can you find betaine hydrochloride anywhere you find other supplements?

I tried enzymes but found no change, and fermented foods like yogurt and kefir and sauerkraut are an avoid too.


G'day Shelly, hope you are feeling better nowadays.

I found an explanation for acid and alkaline levels of foods, especially lemons (been wondering for a long time myself why lemon is acidic but actually alkaline after digestion?)  Here 'tis:

Quoted Text
The Science: Why are acidic lemons alkaline-producing?
The answer is simply that when we digest the food, it produces alkaline residue. That's why we classify it as an alkaline food. When we digest a food it is chemically oxidized ('burned') to form water, carbon dioxide and an inorganic compound. The alkaline or acidic nature of the inorganic compound formed determines whether the food is alkaline or acid-producing. If it contains more sodium, potassium or calcium, it's classed as an alkaline food. If it contains more sulphur, phosphate or chloride, it's classed as an acid food. From: http://www.trans4mind.com/nutrition/pH.html


Lemons are so good, if someone tells me to go and suck lemons I  

Also found out recently that acids attacking your teeth is a sign of acidosis in the body.  When I'm not acidic lemons don't bother my teeth anymore.

I am about 100% sure i'm an explorer.  I am blood type A+.  My mother is O and my dad is AB.  I have had GERD off and on since I was in HS.  I am not sure whether or not it is due to low stomach acid or too much.  I took Aciphex for 3 mths and felt great!  I do know that fatty meats and foods considered as toxins contribute greatly to me having acid reflux.
Explorer has a sluggish  liver.  When liver is overloaded, it sends new things coming at it up so it doesn't have to deal with more toxin.  Acid reflux is the result.  When the liver is no longer compromised, the GERD should no longer be an issue.  This is what i have learned from the Chinese medical point of view.  The liver is considered to be the "gas pedal" to all of the other organs in the body.
