Lack of Gastric Acid

Lack of Gastric Acid as a cause of Candida

If the problem has existed for years, there is usually a lack of gastric acid which then allows the stomach to be colonized by microbes, causing inflammation with pain and later, ulcers. The toxins released by the microbial overpopulation cause in addition chronic inflammation of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas and intestines. I regard it as rather likely that a chronic inflammation of the pancreas is a major contributing factor in the development of insulin-dependent diabetes.
