My GI dr placed a ph Bravo capsule in my esophagus right above the opening to my stomach. This measures the ph of the contents coming from the stomach into the esophagus.

I will go over the results with him on Monday. my numbers stayed between 5.0-7.0 when there was no activity (heartburn or anything) and then dipped to about 3.0-4.0 when I was having symptoms.

That still doesn't sound very acidic though does it? Of course, I guess it is good that there isn't too much acidity in my esophagus?

My depression is worse than ever today. Its also that time of month and everything is in a flair. My stomach being the worst. I still feel so hopeless.

Im giving up on antibiotics. I have yet to get on any that I could tolerate for more than 2 weeks and I am seeing no improvement at all.

Nancy,

IMO, that ph is very acidic.

Nancy,

A pH of 3 is ten thousand times more acidic than a pH of 7. Hiker

A doctor (wearing a Nexium scrub top) told my son, "Autistic kids produce too much stomach acid. He needs to be on Nexium." (Nexium contains Mg.)

What we found was he had virtually no beneficial bacteria left.

Once we restored them, using loading doses...he began to improve.

The body might be saying, "Hey, I need to make more stomach acid to breakdown the food to feed the few remaining beneficial bacteria so they (in turn) can absorb and make the nutrients I need."

The stomach is so acidic that the cell turnover is almost daily!
