MY RECENT BRUSH WITH ACIDOSIS

—————————————————-

Yes, as I have mentioned before that we are acidity prone Individuals hence food that require lots of acid release (Red meat, it must be banned for life for acidity prone persons) must be avoided. I had avoided it (Red meat) for more than2 years but recently gave in to temptation and started eating 2-3 portions whenever I had chance. Eventually I had a lot of Red meat one day (7-8 pieces) and that did it. I was back to same feeling of burning pain in abdomen and it became reality that DEVIL had caught me again and I must now pay the price. But since I had the program ready I instead caught the devil by head and came out of it in just flat 2 weeks, which was the fastest recovery time knowing fully well that it took months last 2 times to recover. But I am a man of 100% discipline so that always gets me out of trickiest situations that I face in life.

What Happened

===============

I knew that I had done wrong by eating too much red meat so kept a watch. By 5-6 hours after meal burning pain in stomach started which was a sign that the sensitive area (leaky gut area) in my stomach has opened up again and is now signalling a coming ACIDOSIS.

The symptoms were clear, first thing it did was to consume electrolytes (alkaline reserves) to maintain PH level, which made me feel fatigued and drowsy and also the resulting stress slowed the stomach down signalling I cannot eat heavy foods. The stomach that is slowed will cause acid release as soon as it senses that the food is NOT MOVING and if you had no meat and just carbohydrates and fats as meal, entire load of acids will need to neutralized which will consume ELECTROLYTES from your body making you feel weak and fatigued.

Remember, acids are needed to digest PROTEIN but if your food did not contain PROTEIN (Meat) the acid release (which would not have happened if stomach was NOT SLOWED down) will cause ACID INDIGESTION meaning Acids have got released in absence of protein (meat) thus to neutralize so much acids (which would have otherwise be consumed by meat in normal situations) alkaline reserves (electrolytes) are consumed on daily basis making you fatigued and weak all along.

So if you think why NOT HAVE meat with all meals? Well this is a Paradox situation for you. Your Leaky stomach will not survive if acid is released frequently to digest the protein and hence you must avoid eating meat. And to avoid acid release during other meal you must EAT MEAL that is LIGHT, VEGETARIAN and is cooked on slow flame for less than 8 minutes or just eat boiled meal so that it is light to stomach and can move easily.

Then why do people with NO LEAKY GUT also suffer with high acidity? This is because of ACID REBOUND effect of PPI (ACID BLOCKER medicine) that you took that has created a lot of ACID WASTE in your body system thus slowing down stomach. Once stomach slows down it causes ACID RELEASE after meal because it assumes that since FOOD is NOT MOVING acid must be released to destroy the food.

In fact when ACIDOSIS struck; the first one week the meal shall be just boiled without even a TRACE of oil, with lots of CAYENNE pepper to heal the burned part of stomach. Also L GLUTAMINE powder along with MULTIPLE AMINO ACIDS powder to heal the gut which would take at least 7-10 days.

Steps I took to immediate remedy

==========================

  1. 2 TSP of baking soda dissolved in water immediately after sensing burning pain in stomach. Also drink COLD MILK WITHOUT SUGAR to sooth stomach.
  2. Next if you are NAUSEATED and cannot eat food despite hunger, HAVE CAROM SEED’s boiled water. This shall take away NAUSEA soon.
  3. A quick dosage of ELECTROLYTE to cure fatigue and drowsiness.
  4. Stopped all intake of tea coffee or anything that will stimulate stomach.
  5. Immediately switched to BOILED VEGAN FOOD (boiled RICE/plain yogurt MOSTLY avoiding all kinds of flour).This Veg food must be prepared on low flame and shall not contain even a trace of cooking oil for first one week. Avoid curried food here.
  6. Take steps to cleanse the ACID WASTE by having daily twice Wheat grass powder in water , Black Raisins soaked water (Soaked for 8-10 hours) , 1 TSP Cayenne pepper water to heal the stomach of all ACID WASTE.
  7. All snacking MUST BE ALKALINE only beet, carrot, cucumber etc.
  8. L GLUTAMINE Pure powder and also MULTIPLE AMINO ACIDS powder in water TWICE A DAY to enable fast healing of stomach along with cayenne pepper with water. Stop L Glutamine immediately if it causes uneasy stomach. Instead Have Cabbage juice/bottled gourd (lauki) juice every day for next 3-4 weeks. Cabbage juice / Bottled gourd juice is a must for ulcer cure.
  9. Sprinkle ORGANIC SALTS like Black salt/ Pink Himalayan salts and Red Chillies powder on all meals for faster healing and drain acid waste.
  10. TRIPHLA (HIMALAYA brand is my choice) AFTER EVERY MEAL to cleanse stomach of acid waste and support MOTILITY which is now affected as stomach is stressed after a lots of burning due to acids. The TRIPHLA is initially hard on stomach and you may feel that it is causing acidity but that is not the case.
  11. After 7-10 days you would have started on regular Vegetarian meals slowly increasing STRONG food contents. You must gradually add strong content in food.
  12. Food can now be cooked with 1-2 TSP oil if required after 1st week of eating light food.
  13. Strictly avoid SUGAR, MEAT, PROCESSED FOOD, and FRIED FOOD. All other strong food like white flour must be gradually added to meal. Fried food shall be tried one BITE at a time till your stomach is able to accept it without any stress.
  14. MEAT to be avoided for next 8-12 weeks. RED MEAT MUST BE BANNED FOR LIFE. I have learnt that sticking to moderate eating of RED MEAT in real life IS NOT POSSIBLE and you do not want to take chance of ACIDOSIS RETURNING again.
  15. For me after 3’rd time I have learnt my lesson and have banned the RED MEAT FOR LIFE.

    Hi Sunil

    Thanks for writing this. I wonder is it okay for you to eat chicken and fish still? Can you have tea, coffee? Alcohol? Can your digestive system handle those foods? Also, I think it is great that you write about acidity/acidosis as there is so little written about it on the internet, in general.

    I tired your ‘lemon detox’ yesterday (lemon juice + cayenne pepper + warm water). It worked like magic though I felt my stomach burnt a little after taking it – which scared me at first, but then it passed.

    Many thanks

    Seeme

      Seeme, All types of meat shall be avoided during recovery. Also anything that stimulates stomach shall be avoided too. So if you have sensitive stomach you must avoid tea coffee alcohol till recovery. In general if you followed the program 100% you would be able to eat everything in say 12-16 week but meat must be had with few days gap and only in grilled, roasted or boiled form only strictly avoiding red meat for ever.
      I would suggest you to read blog multiple times and then decide what is the best recourse for you. I am sorry I can not answer your several queries as it is in practice not possible for me to respond to so many queries to so many people as this is just an extra burden I have taken up apart from my regular busy life. Please take your decisions and be responsible for them. Thanks

    *** How to survive without PPI when prescribed by DOCTORS ***
    ==========================================================
    Okay; Whether you like it or NOT your doctor may prescribe PPI /H2 Blockers(Acid Blockers) along with Pain Killers drugs or whenever there was some sort of surgery etc. But; as we know that they (PPI) are the worst kind of drugs and cause Acid Rebounds and worst type of acidity issues along with slow stomach (Gastro Paresis); so How do we ask Doctors NOT to PRESCRIBE THESE?
    Look; If you fight with your doctor or argue with them, they may find an excuse NOT TO TREAT you any-more.
    So the best way to handle this situation is as follows:-
    1) You may REQUEST your doctor NOT TO PRESCRIBE PPI/H2 Blockers and INSTEAD ASK THEM to prescribe ANTACIDS; and your excuse would be that your are ALLERGIC TO PPI & H2 Blockers or they don’t suit you.
    2) Let DOCTORS prescribe PPI & H2 blockers but you would either ignore purchasing them or have option NOT TO USE. This way you avoid all sorts of fights or differences on this subject with your doctor. You may use ANTACIDS INSTEAD.
    3) But NOT TAKING PPI or H2 Blockers does NOT MEAN that you do not need to take care of your prevailing situation. Look; Doctors prescribed these drugs for a REASON and you are going to avoid these for certain reason and it does not mean that you do not take care of this situation through other means. Use of Painkillers may cause ACIDITY and that’s why these PPI are prescribed by doctors.
    YOU MUST USE NATURAL means to avoid acidity issues during this period (as prescribed for PPI) and use either or all of the method like having Coconut water, Organic Sea Salt / Black salt /Himalayan salt WATER, Baking soda dissolved in water, (NOT BAKING POWDER), COLD MILK [without sugar] every few hours in a day.
    4) Also during this period when your are on Painkillers and antibiotics you must be ONLY ON ALKALINE FOOD (Quickly prepared VEGAN Food).
    Never consume MEAT & Sugar during this period to avoid acidity issues (duration as prescribed for PPI / H2 blockers).

    Hi Sunil,

    I have been taking dexilant for quite sometime like 2 years and symptoms have improved . I have acidity issues since I was teenager and after marriage and kids , I have a small hiatal hernia also . Now my issue is maintaining diet . For few days I follow clean and best diet but then I feel perfectly alreight and eat something heavy on weekends .symtoms again come back then . What should I do ? Will it really go away following the diet and how much long I have to follow . Will I be able to eat normally if this diet would be followed whole life . Please respond

    • liz says:

      Just adding so that so that I can be notified via email

    • Sunil says:

      Yes after waning off PPI class of meds dexilant I would do following. I just quit ppi meds cold turkey and was taking churna and triphla regularly after meals. In fact I was prescribed avipattikar churna (1 small tsp 2-3gms during meals) and additonally divya udaramrit vati, Divya punarnavadi Mandur ,Divya Chandraprabha vati which I took 1 tablet each after every meal. These are from PATANJALI ayurveda or any other ayurvedic brand once can use. The avipattikar churna will make sure to pass the food in stomach without causing acidity. As usual you must avoid sugar,processed foods, meat for now till recovery. Later one can start tender meat like chicken and fish only in boiled or grilled forms. Have all practically all meals with 1small tsp of avipattikar churna and see the difference.Thanks and you must follow your best judgement when raking suggestions online. I would also ask you to visit nearest patanjali ayurveda clinic for more info. Thanks
      PS: Also take one triphla (Himalaya brand is what i use) once a day at nights.
      Good luck.

      • liz says:

        Hi Sunil ,

        How to take avipattikar churna? After meals or before . Will it be ok if I take only avipattikar churna besides other Ayurvedic medicines ?i am not sure if will be able to find other medicines as per the place where I live . I take 2 triphla capsules after dinner for sure . Will this help along with diet you said ?

  5. Sunil says:

    avipattikar churna I used to take just after starting first bite of any meal. This is a safer way to have food. Previously i used to have triphla after every meal but then I found this churna method more softer way to move food forward without causing acidity. Yes I also used to take one triphla once a day in nights. Stick to vegan boiled diet to start with and slowly increase the strongness of food but all food must be taken with churna for next 2 months.
    You will be out of this sooner if you follow this strictly. Even cold milk (no sugar) must be had with cerel as milk is also acidic and requires something to work on and for that cerel along with milk is safe to have. Milk can not be had stand alone. I always use baking soda (eating soda) in case you felt uneasy in stomach to take care of acidic stomach occasionally. Also keep amla juice handy and have it with water 3-4 times a day 2 sopon added to water. This will keep your stomach acid free for the day.
    Good luck.

  6. Sunil says:

    Before I forget,if any one has not stopped ppi class of medicines they will never ever come out of acid reflux/acidosis issues. Please use your discretion and best judgement to understand this point. PPI medicines and acid blockers are the root cause of acid release imbalance that is caused inside the stomach although they say gastro paresis aka hyper acidity is idiopathic but then how can they (pharmaceuticals) tie the root cause to their own medicines , i.e: PPI /acid blockers class of medicines .Thanks

  7. Sunil says:

    • L GLUTAMINE Powder (Unflavoured no sugar) and Multiple Amino acids powder (BCAA unflavoured no sugar) for GUT REPAIR.
    Caution: L Glutamine not to be used while you have a sensitive stomach or stomach lining inflammation; to be used only in later stages (2-3 months after recovery). Stop it if you get burning pain or feel that Glutamine is causing the damage/uneasy stomach, as this means the stomach is not yet ready for this supplement.
