I should mention one of the reasons I suspected I had poor stomach acid production. Off and on, for the last decade or so, I'd periodically have this persistent, gnawing hunger in my stomach, even after I had just eaten. In fact, sometimes it would literally get worse after I ate. That symptom had gotten a lot worse the last year or so, happening more frequently, sometimes for days at a time. After some searching, and ruling out a couple of other causes, I found that this is a common symptom of low stomach acid! I'm happy to report, that the HCL/pepsin therapy seems to have taken care of that annoying symptom, or at least knocked it way down.
If you or anyone you know, has heartburn or ANY other digestive issues, I strongly encourage you to read this book. It is a real eye-opener. The ONLY thing I will say, is that, in the book he mentions they don't really know why people with low stomach-acid production experience heartburn, but that they observe clinical improvement when acid production is improved. From what I've read elsewhere, we DO know why: if stomach acid is deficient, food sits in your stomach and ferments, which creates gas. That gas carries particles of the stomach acid upward, to the GE sphincter, and irritates it, causing the heartburn. But that's just a side-note and doesn't warrant taking away a star for this book. Great stuff
As someone with several autoimmune diseases, I was particularly interested in the chapter that discusses the connection between hypochlorhydria, leaky gut, and autoimmune disease. I've just recently started taking supplemental HCl and pepsin under the guidance of one of the physicians at the Tahoma Clinic (of which Dr. Wright is the founder and medical director), and I am already seeing some improvement in my digestive symptoms. I will be very interested to see whether this also improves the symptoms of any of my other health problems.
My frustrations are primarily due to problems that should have been corrected by an editor or proofreader. Some of these problems were likely due to the use of OCR software. For example, "tly" consistently appears as "dy," and "Tums" appears as "Turns." In other places, there were minor grammar problems or missing punctuation that may have been in the original text. The intended meaning is not difficult to decipher, but I find these kinds of errors annoying.
As for the organization, I was a little frustrated having to wait until Chapter 7 to read about the suggested changes to relieve heartburn and correct low stomach acid, but I wouldn't mind so much if there was an entry in the Table of Contents linking to the lovely summarizing table. Again, a minor complaint, but something I would have wanted to change if I had edited this book.
Despite these minor frustrations, I think this book was generally clear and easy to understand, and many people would benefit from reading it.
