Yeast overgrowth, betaine HCL, and what's next?
Posted by: Chris

I have taken many tests that indicated a systemic yeast overgrowth and leaky gut syndrome. I recently began reading about HCL supplements and have taken up to 4 with a meal (Betaine HCL 650 mg / Pepsin 162 mg) and did not feel any adverse symptoms. Based on the potential symptoms of deficient HCL, yeast overgrowth, and leaky gut syndrome I have many matches (too many to list). I would like to know how I can improve my body's ability to produce it's own HCL and I would like to insure that my systemic yeast overgrowth is eradicated. If these two items are accomplished I believe many of my symptoms will go away. I am interested in optimizing my health as much as possible and I love to learn new things that help me accomplish this. Do you think I should make a visit to your office? If so, please provide information about how we would spend our time. I want to make sure I know what will occur when I get there, how much time we will spend, procedures, discussion, cost, etc. If you think we can accomplish my goals by communicating over the Internet I'm willing to give that a try first. Between now and the time we communicate I would like to know what I should be doing to improve my body's natural ability to produce more HCL.

If you come to see me, plan to spend 3 hours for a history, physical exam, live and dry blood cell analysis and a treatment plan. For particulars, go to If you want a better understanding of what the problem may be, read this: Yeast syndrome does not occur by virtue of hypochlorhydria alone. Most people over 50 have hypochlorhydria, yet very few of them have yeast syndrome. The remedy I mentioned to you on the phone which helps regenerate a person's ability to produce stomach acid is called Speci-CHOL. It is a German Pekana homeopathic and you can only get it from a doc's office, as far as I know, and I doubt if anyone will be supplying it unless you are a patient of that person, although I could be wring there. (Due to medical-legal considerations) From what you have said, I would hazard the guess that you are going to require treatment to recover fully and for that reason, if you think you want to see me, I advise you to spend your $$ in that way rather than pay for a full consultation by Internet.
