Enzymes & HCl

How to build up HCl naturally; RECIPE

Hydrochloric Acid, HCl, is the only acid produced by the body. GOD put that into our stomach for perfect digestion and much, much more. Every cell in the body requires it. Due to aging or trauma, our stomach slows down in this production and disease begins.

HCl can be supplemented by taking Betaine HCl. This is not enough. We must take other steps to build up production.

3 knuckles of fresh ginger
½ medium organic lemon, juice
½ teaspoon mineral salt
¼ teaspoon NO SALT – or NU SALT salt substitute [Potassium Chloride – important for sodium/potassium balance] Click here to view a picture.

Scrape peel off ginger with end of dinner spoon. Chop, grate or grind ginger and add lemon juice and both salts. Stir well and set aside for overnight.
Take around ½ teaspoon with each meal. Can suck out the juice and spit out fiber, but we recommend swallowing it all. [Can take more until you are built up; overage will indicate with a ‘heart burn’.]

Another source of ginger is the sushi pickled in a jar. Use the natural color – not the pink which is dyed. Click here to see where to get it.

This is a lot more expensive, but much easier.

Pickled GINGER HCl rebuilder recipe

These ginger recipes along with the Betaine HCl capsule will help you build up and maintain your HCl production.

Are enzyme supplements necessary?

It depends on how you eat. It’s as simple as that. You may be familiar with the following statements;

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Hippocrates

“You are what you eat.”

Are these true statements? Challenge yourself. Prove the answer to yourself.

Ask, “What am I? Fast food burgers and diet pop? Are you hotdogs and beer? Are you organically grown dark leafy green vegetables, legumes, free range meat, eggs, herbal teas and WATER?, Are you doughnuts, rolls, coldcut sandwiches and coffee? Pizza, fast food salads?”

Make the corresponding observation: “How do I feel and how do I look?”

Our philosophy is this: Never scrimp and save on what you are putting into your mouth and on your skin. Your foods should be the very best that you can afford. (Scrimp and save on clothing and other necessities that do not affect your health.)

Should you take supplements? Undoubtedly, yes. If you do not take anything else, take digestive ENZYMES and HCl [Hydrochloric acid, aka BETAINE].

This is one of the most important steps you can take for your health. Almost everyone who is approaching the age of thirty needs to supplement enzymes because the organs begin to slow down production of this most important nutrient. HCl is the most important digestive aid and germicide produced by the stomach. Supplement this as well as the digestive enzymes.

When you shop for enzymes keep in mind that there are certain ones that are of the utmost importance for keeping an alkaline system. Look for these four enzymes on the label. If they are not all there, keep shopping.





We developed the acronym of PLAC for an aid in remembering these four enzymes when you are reading labels. We found this product on the web.

There are many other enzymes which may be in the supplement such as Alpha-G , Glucoamylase, Invertase, Malt Diastase, Pectinase, Xylanase, Bromelain, Papain, Hcl (hydrochloric acid), Pepsin, Betaine, Probiotics, Botanicals which are also wonderful, in conjunction with the four listed above.

Our current favorite enyzme product is Qzyme by Garden of Life.


If your diet does not include the best foods, you should consider taking the very best supplements that money can buy. Get the best Enzyme product, a good multiple Vitamin/Mineral complex, Borage oil, vitamin C (ascorbic acid). A hair tag analysis can reveal specific vitamin, minerals or herbs that may be required to maintain your good health. ((See the DNA testing button))

Another benefit regarding enyzmes: When these are present in abundance in the body, your pH will not be so acidic that disease can survive. Parasites and eggs of parasites do not have a fighting chance. We inhale these creatures because dozens of varieties are so small that they can attach to dust particles that float in the air. Parasites or bugs that are accidentally consumed literally explode when exposed to enzymes in the stomach or intestines. The enzymes melt the exoskeleton of the bugs. Enzyme powder has been applied to the scalp, ears, nose, to destroy vector infections.

As always, ask your physician before taking supplements.

There are no laws regulating anything designed to be applied to our skin. Whatever you put onto your skin is consumed because it is a living, breathing, consuming organ and not the barrier that it was thought to have been, therefore use only food grade personal products when possible.
