So a ton of people on here have talked about digestion/gut/diets and damage to the lining of the intestines. I’ve read a post where someone claimed recovery from omeprazole (lowers stomach acid, his logic was that it would allow the gut to start healing: A Potential Cure/Treatment) which lines up with a lot of improvements people have seen (I myself have too, although it only lasted a day or so) with baking soda and another where the user improved with a bunch of things, among them betaine HCl (Insane Recovery, hope it lasts. Here is what I did). If I remember right he attributed a lot of his success to the HCl.
My question for you all is this: should we be a) increasing stomach acid to help digest things more or b) decreasing it to allow the gut to heal?
Anyone have any thoughts/ideas?
