Many food allergies are the result of poor sterilization and conversion, of the nutrients consumed. When food enters the stomach, it is mixed with hydrochloric acid (HCL), pepsin and a host of other enzymes. The HCL breaks down the food into a thick liquid mass called chyme. In the process of breaking down the food, it is sterilized, by the HCL, to remove bacteria and pathogens. Hydrochloric acid in conjunction with the peptic enzymes breaks down proteins into peptones, which are the building blocks for the amino acids. Many proteins are allergens and will cause allergic reactions if they are not broken down and converted by the peptic enzymes. Pepsin is most active in the conversion process, when the pH of the acid is 1.0. When the pH of the acid decreases, there is also decreased peptic conversion, of proteins. At pH 5.0 the peptic enzymes are no longer active in the conversion process. The decreased strength of the HCL is called Hypochlorhydria. Hypochlorhydria will allow bad bacteria and pathogens to enter the small bowel, resulting in allergic reactions. Some of the reactions are: tingling, or itching of the mouth, hives, eczema, swelling of the lips, face, tongue, throat, wheezing, nasal congestion, abdominal pain, diarrhea and/or constipation, nausea, vomiting, etc. Hypochlorhydria will cause malabsorption, resulting in vitamin and mineral deficiency. Many people the suffer from Hypochlorhydria will be deficient in vitamin B-12, and other essential vitamins and minerals. Rather than doing allergy skin test, intradermal test, and skin patch test, a pH diagnostic test will verify the present of Hypochlorhydria. The test will quickly tell the doctor if you are producing too much acid. During testing the doctor will be able to tell if you have heavy mucus in your stomach (from infection or ulceration), pyloric insufficiency (duodenal reflux), GERD, Acute or sub-acute gastritis, etc. If you have food allergies get a pH diagnostic test, pH capsule test, or pH gastrogram. It will tell you exactly what your first stage of digestion is doing. Check out www.digestiveblog.com for more info on food allergies.
