Allergy Help for Adults

Postby JacobDO777 on Wed Mar 15, 2017 9:59 pm

Many people over the age of 40, but not limited to any age group, develop allergies that they never had when they were young. In many instances this is caused by a condition called Hypochlorhydria. Hypochlorhydria is the reduction in the strength of the hydrochloric acid (HCL) produced by the stomachs Parietal cells.

In a normal health adult, food entering the stomach is combined with amylase, hydrochloric acid (HCL), Peptic enzymes and a host of other enzymes. The HCL breaks the food down into a thick liquid mass called chyme. It also creates a sterile environment in the stomach, which destroys many bacteria and pathogens. The HCL also assists the Peptic enzymes in the conversion of proteins. Many proteins are allergens and must be broken down and converted, to stop the allergic reactions. For Pepsin to work at its optimum level, the HCL must be very strong (pH 1). When the first stage of digestion completes it job of breaking down, sterilizing and converting nutrients, the chyme is moved into the small bowel. When the processed nutrients enter the small bowel the vitamins, minerals and micronutrients are absorbed.

Hypochlorhydria is caused by: aging, antibiotics, Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs), cancer drugs, and many other chemical medications. It can also be caused by sedentary lifestyles and environmental toxins.
The reduction in the strength of the HCL, no longer maintains a sterile environment, in the stomach. Bacteria and pathogens are no longer destroyed and nutrients are no longer completely broken down. The strength of the HCL keeps the Peptic enzymes from completely breaking down and converting proteins, At pH 5.0 the Peptic enzymes are completely inactive, in the conversion of proteins. In addition the small valve at the base of the stomach (pyloric sphincter) is forced to relax, because of the weak HCL. The contents of the stomach is prematurely dumped into the small bowel, without the benefit of complete sterilization and conversion. Bacteria, pathogens and allergens are now allowed to enter the small bowel, causing allergic reactions and bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). Depending on the severity of the Hypochlorhydria, the allergic reaction may just be swelling of the lips, tongue, skin, itching, gas, excess nasal mucus, belching, bloating, nausea, diarrhea and/or constipation. In extreme cases, the allergies may be life threatening like: wheezing, fainting, shortness of breath, swelling of the throat, etc.. Hypochlorhydria will cause malabsorption or the necessary vitamins, minerals and micronutrients required to keep the body and immune system working at its optimum level. Hypochlorhydria is one of the main causes of food allergies.

Hypochlorhydria can be easily and accurately diagnosed with a pH diagnostic test. The results of a pH test will allow the doctor to prescribe a natural medication to treat the condition. Everyone over the age of 40, or anyone with food allergies, should get a pH diagnostic test, pH capsule test, or pH gastrogram test. There is a lot more info about Hypochlorhydria and food allergies on the web.
