I’m taking frankincense oil, and when I do I sort of feel better. Because of the way I feel when I eat, I don’t want to. And when I do, I mostly throw it up. I have not lost much weight from it, in fact this is the heaviest I’ve been.
Baking soda has a number of health benefits and can offer fast relief from acid reflux, too. Because it’s a base, not an acid, it can help to neutralize stomach acid even if you have low production.

I have done 2 tests for low stomach acid and both positive (bicarb and HCL) I also eat a lot of meals without protein, maybe sweet potatoe with avocado and a side of collards and brocolli should I take 0 HCI with these meals or just less?.
