So if the problem is bacteria, do you guys think that taking a higher dosage of HCL, following the diet, and with time this problem will go away?
As you know, you don’t really want to add an antibiotic to your regimen, especially if you have a Candida overgrowth, and you don’t really need to. There are other ways of destroying pathogens other than using an antibiotic. High doses of probiotics as well as homemade kefir (beneficial bacteria) have a direct impact on H. Pylori and other pathogens.
I agree with Jv about increasing the HC; if you’ve tried it and it didn’t work, try increasing the amount by one pill before a meal with protein and see if this helps. Here are the actual instructions for doing this.
