I have heard from far too many patients that their medical doctors have put them on some medication or another with the claim that they’re making too much stomach acid. Let me tell you right now: it is absolutely, physiologically impossible to produce too much stomach acid. In fact, many of the symptoms doctors try to treat with these acid-reducing medications are actually caused by low stomach acid.
