Hi there! I am just wondering. Peanut butter (the natural stuff) is suppossed to be great for type A. But when I eat it I get acid reflux real bad and stomach aches. I have been eating almond butter instead but even that is starting to bother me in the same ways! What can I do? Is it the fat? I don't think I get that reaction when I eat anything else, even chocolate or olive oil or earth balance.

You mentioned in another thread that you have some digestive problems - do you know if you lack HCl.  I get horrible heartburn when I eat nutbutters unless I take HCl.  Nutbutter seems to be the food that bothers me most in terms of low stomach acid.  Hope you figure it out; peanutbutter rocks

I don't usually eat them plain but I'd imagine the same thing? Why?

Funny thing is almond flour doesn't usually bother me, I don't think? But maybe because I use it with other ingredients?

Yeah, it's hydrochloric acid.  Low HCl is often a cause of leaky gut, so you may want to look into it.  here is a website with a little info and a screening quiz to check the likelihood of whether or not your body is producing enough stomach acid.  It says about people needing HCl as they age, but I began to need it when I was only 18 so age isn't a deciding factor

plain nuts or nut flours don't bother me anywhere near as much as nutbutters.

Hmm...thanks. It says I'm at least 67% chance I have it. I think maybe I need to order HCl and see if it helps?

healing your gut should be a priority for starts, together with your diet guidelines

If you order some, don't just take whatever amount it says on the bottle.  Try one capsule with a meal the first time you take it.  If you have no burning, that means you need the HCl.  At your next meal take two capsules.  If still no burning (acid reflux kind of feeling), then take three at your next meal.  Once you reach the point where you've taken too much and it burns go back down to the highest amount that didn't cause burning and stick with that.  The more protein you eat at a meal, the more that will be required.  If you eat a meal with no protein, you might not need much at all - if any.  Taking HCl has made a HUGE difference for me, but everyone is different.  Good luck

Why the Earth Balance? Not good for your gut. Add some Ghee to your diet it contains butyrate and will help to heal rather then harm you.

Because I was told to avoid dairy and ghee is dairy! And I love the buttery flavor.  Earth balance is non-hydrogenated, expeller pressed so I figure it can't be too bad for me..it has canola, palm, and olive oils in it.

Ghee is good for any blood type or genotype; you're much better off with ghee.

smart balance ingredients:
expeller-pressed oil blend (soybean, palm fruit, canola, and olive), filtered water, pure salt, natural flavor (derived from corn - no msg, no alcohol, no gluten), soy protein, soy lecithin, lactic acid (non-dairy, derived from sugar beets), and naturally extracted annatto for color.

ghee ingredients:
clarified butter

I don't know about you, but I'd go with the ghee

Earth Balance is not food no one should eat it. Please consider the Ghee as mentioned above.

Eat an acidic food like apple vinegar, or drink tea or coffee.  If this causes a sour burn and acid reflux, then the problem is likely an overly acidic stomach.

If these same things provide relief, then you may have low stomach acid.

I get the same things sometimes only it's from too much acid.  Even causes sensational running to the toilet when I'm too acidic.  Eating the nuts wouldn't be as bad.  Might be the way it's turned into an oil which makes the stomach make lots of acid?

Try the test like Easy E says, rather use lemon juice than any kind of vinegar though.

acidic or alkaline reactions of certain foods are NOT one size fit alls

first determine BT/GT, then decide upon which foods to check on acid reflux issues....

I have had acid reflux issues from time to time.  For me wine, most alcohol in general is the biggest trigger.  Also eating spicy foods triggers it. A lot of cheeses do it.

Tomato sauce triggers it, even lemons and drinking water on an empty stomach can trigger it.  A lot of the things that are considered toxins for explorers seem to give me an acid reflux type feeling. It ain't fun!
