What kind of doctor are you?” is a question I’m often asked.  A frequent reply is that I do for humans what a mechanic does for cars. If there’s a red light on the dash, (humans call it a symptom) I put you up on the rack and hook you up to the analyzer to see what part or parts that normally allow humans to function normally is missing. I show you how to add that back and the light goes off. If the oil light is on in your car, it really doesn’t make sense to do anything but add motor oil. Coconut oil won’t work. WD-40 won’t work. Either may help in the short-term. But if that’s a choice for the long-term, those choices will buy you a new engine. It’s similar with your health.

Symptoms you have like depression, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, arthritis, fatigue, headaches, PMS, IBS, Crohn’s, asthma, memory loss, weight gain, low sex drive, recurrent infections etc. are red lights that tell you something is out of balance. Synthetic drugs for these problems is like putting coconut oil in your car engine.

One very common cause of lots of red lights coming on is hydrochloric acid deficiency. Hydrochloric acid is important for several reasons. One is that it is a primary way your body keeps critters from overgrowing. With each meal, your body should sterilize your food by producing hydrochloric acid. If this doesn’t happen, it’s like leaving food out on your porch–you invite critters. Candida yeast is a primary critter that lives in all of us. Women know it as the critter that causes vaginal yeast infections and diaper rash. Imagine your child’s brain or lungs with a vaginal yeast infection. They are given the names “asthma” and “ADD/ADHD” respectively, but these symptoms are caused by the same overgrowth of Candida yeast that causes diaper rash. When these overgrowths occur, the body’s immune system has a limited response called “inflammation”. We give the symptom a different name depending on where the inflammation is, but it’s all smoke from the same fire.

I treat acne the same basic way I treat Alzheimer’s, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. The simplicity confuses people, but keeping people healthy is not much different than raising healthy farm animals…provide healthful food and some basic nutrients. These nutrients must be absorbed. That is another key function of hydrochloric acid. It allows you to absorb vitamins, minerals and amino acids–the building blocks you need to stay healthy. If you are low in hydrochloric acid, it’s like trying to bake with no salt or sugar.

One of the signs that you are not absorbing minerals is white spots on your nails. Not absorbing these nutrients can cause a wide variety of symptoms. Not being able to absorb the amino acid tyrosine, for instance, could lead to fatigue and/or depression. Not absorbing selenium would affect thyroid and immune function. Take home lesson is that if you don’t get to the root causes of your symptoms, you’re not going to get better long-term regardless of what drugs you throw in.
