Life Enhancement`FoldRight )
I'm 59 and I've been taking FoldRight for about nine monthsso, what's in FoldRight?:
hoping to feel younger (okay, don't laugh).
Unexpectedly, after the first month
my osteoarthritis improved
in my hands, knees and hip joints.
Now, nine months later
I can even snap my fingers!
My knees and hips no longer hurt
and my muscles seem firmer.
... I take two teaspoons

(Dr.Atkins’ (Vita-Nutrient Solution;
Simon & Schuster, 1998, pp. 234.235):
"A lack of stomach acid is commonplace,Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride:
the result of aging, genetics, use of certain medications
and a variety of other factors."
Citing 11 studies Dr. Atkins contends that
"the inability to properly digest protein
contributes to asthma, diabetes, food allergies,
iron deficiency anemia, pernicious anemia,
candida, rheumatoid arthritis,
intestinal infections, psoriasis, vitiligo,
hives, eczema, dermatitis, herpetiformis and acne."

in the digestive system."

"The GAPS Nutritional Protocol
is designed to restore
the integrity of the gut lining
. when stomach acid is low,
the protein is not fully digested,
and if there is a "leaky gut" problem
then the undigested protein gets into the blood
and causes the immune system to attack itself .
. the GAPS diet prevents leaky gut
by avoiding toxic foods such as grains,
and by temporarily minimizing the fiber
that is feeding the pathogenic bacteria
that are causing some of the gut leakiness .
. it is also ensuring complete digestion of food,
so that the protein feeds you and not pathogens .]
Betaine 1.5 g;
. FoldRight happens to contain a digestive aid
similar to what the GAPS diet prescribes;
ie, Betaine is a source of hydrochloric acid
utilized by the stomach to produce pepsin
which helps digest proteins .
. the GAPS digestive aid adds pepsin too: ...
GAPS diet digestive aid:
"People with abnormal gut florahow to use betaine:
almost without exception have
low stomach acid production.
Toxins produced by overgrowth of Candida species,
Clostridia and other pathogens
have a strong ability to
reduce secretion of stomach acid.
Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride
recommends that GAPS patients
supplement with stomach acid.
The most physiological preparation available
is Betaine HCl with Pepsin.
Individuals suffering with
stomach and intestinal problems
most frequently assume that
heartburn, indigestion, gas, and reflux
are caused by [excessive] stomach acid.
This common misconception
has been strongly reinforced
by our conventional medical profession,
whose practitioners routinely prescribe
stomach acid blocking medications
at the slightest sign of stomach dysfunction.
Strangely enough, the symptoms of stomach acid
(hydrochloric acid, HCl) over-production
and under production are virtually identical.
. consult your doctor before supplementing;gapsdiet.com:
get checked for stomach or duodenal ulcers.
. adverse symptoms are most likely to occur
in those with the lowest levels of stomach acid.
(likely to have atrophic gastritis
(a thinned-out, inflamed stomach lining).
. HCL is normally neutralized by protein;
and each meal should include protein,
thus each meal should start with HCL .
. slowly increase the dose every 3 days;
Keep increasing the number of pills
until you notice some GI discomfort
then stay at the previous dosage .
. that's the right dose for the tested meal size;
you then want to adjust the dose per meal,
according to its amount of protein .
Dr. Wright reports that the typical dose
is 3,250-4,550mg per meal.
. in several weeks to several months"Gary G. Kish" 2009:
the stomach may be trained to
make proper levels of hydrochloric acid,
so you may need to decrease the dose .

Loose stools were also part of the fun.
This stopped completely.
