Am I understanding you right? You are saying that our bodies are only supposed to produce hydrochloric acid for the first 18 months of our lives? How then are we supposed to digest food? How do you feel about putrified food sitting in the colon? Wouldn't that make our colons a breeding ground for parasites? Additionally, a toxic bowel would only make a person's system even more acidic. I haven't heard you mention much about bowel cleansing. What are your thoughts on that? Do you recommend the use of enemas and/or colonics? Can you direct me to your sources for this information?
