New Liver/Gallbladder Info.

Throughout the entire 40 years of practice my patients continually hear me say “drain the liver/ clear the gallbladder”  This piece from New Human not only speaks to one of the best products for this BUT adds excellent educational material on both these organs. I really want you to understand the importance of these two organs.

Ultra GL is guaranteed to be the most potent Gallbladder/Liver conditioner and detoxifier available in the world. Ultra GL is especially useful for conditions where the liver gets stressed due to the toxicity of certain chemicals. Ultra GL also assists in normal functioning liver cells in that it has antioxidant properties that support liver cell integrity as well as assists in preserving existing liver strength when dealing with many overwhelming challenges. We must keep in mind; the liver is the largest internal organ and it is important the liver is functioning on a normal level when it is responsible for performing more than 500 different functions. Various nutrients are required in order for the liver detoxification to be carried out successfully. An adequate supply of key antioxidants is essential to prevent further liver damage. Milk thistle, vitamin C, selenium, beta carotene, vitamin E, and N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) are all powerful antioxidants which are helpful in liver detoxification. Amino acids such as, SAM-E, Arginine HCL, and many others play an important role in liver health. The B vitamins, including riboflavin and niacin, also aid in liver detoxification. Ultra GL contains these and much more in its “Multi-Dimensional” form guaranteeing it to be the most potent formula available on the market today!

Importance of The Gallbladder

Another important part of our body is the gallbladder. We have to recognize that the gallbladder detox system is closely related to our liver. It is a small pear-shaped sac that is on the lower side of the liver. Its main function is storing and concentrating bile. So what does bile do? It is made by the liver and used in the small intestine. It helps to emulsify fats, lubricate the intestines, and made our stool a brownish color. Water and minerals are absorbed from the bile and so it becomes darker in color. The preferable color of bile is walnut brown and therefore, stool should not be too light in color which indicates the lack of bile in our body. Toxins are eliminated by the liver and passed through the bile. Then it is concentrated within the gallbladder where the toxins entrapped in the bile are later excreted from the body through the stool. Therefore, the gallbladder’s importance is very much correlated with the function of the liver in its cleansing of toxins. However, the gallbladder detox system can be congested if we do not maintain proper diet or keep it healthy. Firstly, we have to know that the gallbladder has always been an easy target for the development of gallstones. With this in mind we have formulated Ultra GL to detoxify both the liver and the Gallbladder on “Multi-Dimensional” levels for maximized healing on every level possible.


The liver is considered by most naturopathic doctors to be the definitive organ in the human body that, based on its health and overall functioning, determines how healthy a person FEELS. This connection between the health of the liver and a person’s general feeling of well-being is why so many naturopathic doctors usually begin a diagnosis of a patient with liver testing. Located just under the rib cage on the right side of the abdomen, the liver is the largest and one of the most important organs in the human body. It performs hundreds of tasks in every minute of everyday, more than any other organ, including the brain. It is constantly filtering, detoxifying, synthesizing, and processing a wide variety of physiological substances. Without a healthy, well-functioning liver, it is easy to become overly-toxic, which can lead to chronic fatigue, a general feeling of sickness and often times depression. The liver is so vital of an organ that a human being cannot survive more than 24 hours without its proper functioning. The liver is involved in all of the most critical systems in the body, including the nervous, immune, endocrine, digestive and circulatory systems and any weakness or debility in the liver impacts every other organ system. In addition to its endless detoxification work, the liver is also the main organ that produces energy to our bodies. It does so by regulating carbohydrate and protein metabolism, hormonal activity, fat burning, and blood sugar. Because of the liver’s role in your body’s metabolism, flushing it out periodically, not only helps you feel much healthier but it also makes it easier for you to maintain an optimal weight.

NOTE: :Recommendations are 1 teaspoon 1-2 x daily allowing one 8 ounce bottle to last anywhere from 24-48 days. My professional opinion–, this is a life saving product worth looking into.

Is it Really Acid Reflux?

Is it Really Acid Reflux?

Let’s take a closer look at the use (or overuse) of proton pump inhibitors, and the dilemma they create by not addressing the real root of the problem. Proton pump inhibitors are often prescribed for gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).  GERD, whose symptoms include chest pain, chronic cough, sleep disturbances, and hoarseness, is characterized by too much stomach acid production, causing it to reflux into the esophagus. Treatment with proton pump inhibitors is used by many in order to suppress acid secretion in the stomach.

But proton pump inhibitors may not be the solution. Why?  Well, we typically do not produce more hormones, insulin, and enzymes as we age. The truth is that most body processes decrease as we age. Most people suffering with symptoms of acid reflux or GERD may actually be experiencing hypochlorhydria or too little acid, which is when the stomach is unable to produce adequate amounts of hydrochloric acid (HCL).

People with low stomach acid levels commonly have symptoms of gas, bloating, flatulence, and constipation or diarrhea. This low acid environment slows digestion. The protein in their food sits in the stomach and putrefies instead of digesting. The sphincter between the stomach and small intestine delays opening because the protein is not properly broken down into peptides due to the insufficient HCL production. The small intestine does not want whole proteins; instead it needs the amino acids from the broken down proteins. This faulty digestive process is associated with low, not high, hydrochloric acid. These acids back flow into the esophagus causing the pain we know as acid reflux.

The barrier that prevents HCL from traveling from your stomach up into your esophagus is called the esophageal sphincter. The cause of this sphincter dysfunction is inadequate levels of HCL. Since normal acid levels help prevent infection in your gut as well as enhance absorption of vitamins and minerals, supplementation with Betaine Hydrochloride will help to support these normal acid levels.  There are numerous companies making Betaine Hydrochloride supplements.  Standard Process first introduced its Betaine Hydrochloride way back in 1947!

Additional supplements may be needed to improve digestive function such as Probiotics and Glutamine. Deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL)  is a soothing herb which helps relax the esophageal sphincter and protects the gastric mucosa and mucous membranes lining the digestive tract.

The bacterium Helicobacter pylori is a major cause of gastritis. The nutrients Mastic Gum, Methylmethionessulfonium, Zinc Carnosine, and Vitamin C address both eradication of H. pylori and the healing and protection of inflamed mucosal tissue.

Natural treatments offer a more effective approach than what is provided by proton pump inhibitors. In addition, proton pump inhibitors can induce several nutrient deficiencies including calcium, potassium, and magnesium. They also may cause serious neuromuscular and cardiovascular problems and increase the chance of hip fracture in people over 50 years of age.

Note:  I spent a career on this issue.  Just know Antacids are not the answer because the issue is NOT TOO MUCH ACID, but TOO Little.  My post on HCL Deficiency and Proton Pump Inhibitors will provide a plethora of information and answers.

Call or write me and we will figure it out!

HCL—Hydrochloric Acid Deficiency

HCL—Hydrochloric Acid Deficiency

 For my entire practice I have dealt with patients suffering from HCL deficiency—BUT    think they have too much acid and take proton pump inhibitors such as Prilosec or Nexium which cause malnutrition. Maalox, Mylanta and Tums also proton pump inhibitors are now “old school”

35 years of clinical experience has shown me 99% of patients suffering from indigestion, heartburn, belching, bloating etc. etc. etc.  are all due to>

Here are just a few symptoms:

  • Acne                       Inner Ear Infections
  • Eczema                 Iron-deficiency anemia
  • Asthma                  Rhinitis (Nasal Inflammation)
  • Diarrhea                 Candida (Yeast Infections)
  • Hay fever                Esophageal/Stomach Disorders
  • Dermatitis              General malabsorption of Nutrients
  • Gallstones              General Indigestion / Heartburn
  • Stomach ulcer       Acetaminophen-induced Liver Toxicity
  • Chronic hives        Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Food allergies        Thyroid Malfunction
  • Arteriosclerosis (hardening/loss of elasticity in the arteries)
  • Poor cognitive function and the onset of dementia
  • Low bone mineral density and osteoporosis
  • Leg and foot cramps because you are not absorbing minerals

How to fix it:

In the middle of your next solid meal, take one 200 mg dose of HCL. The response you are looking for is a warm sensation in your stomach, like if you just drank a cup of very hot tea. It is not going to feel as if you just drank napalm. It is unlikely you will feel any response to one capsule.

At each subsequent meal, increase the dose of HCL by one capsule/tablet until you can feel the warmth in your stomach. DO NOT EXCEED SEVEN CAPSULES (1400 mg HCL). If you do get an uncomfortable burning sensation from the HCL, just drink a glass of water. Don’t worry; in fact, if a small dose of HCL produces burning, it is not because you have adequate HCL at all. If HCL supplements produce burning it indicates rather that your mucosal barrier is damaged! The HCL is producing burning because the acid is burning exposed tissues.

Under normal, healthy circumstances, a person should be able to tolerate a lot of Betaine HCL. HCL only contains about 2-3% hydrogen. The clinical response that occurs with Betaine HCL supplementation is more due to the Betaine than from HCL!

The dose that produces a warm sensation indicates the degree of HCL deficiency (low stomach acid) that you have. If you need all seven capsules, you have severely low stomach acid—that is, your body should be producing nearly 1400 mg of HCL on its own, but isn’t. If you need just one capsule, you know your stomach is not producing quite enough acid, and now is the time to prevent a serious problem from developing. –


To treat low stomach acid, identify the amount of HCL needed to produce the warm sensation, subtract one capsule (200 mg) from that dose and take that amount at every meal.  Smaller meals might require less supplemental HCL and larger meals might require more.
