My colon hydrotherapist told me that many of her clients who suffer from chronic constipation have had great results using HCL. I might try it. I found this article today http://www.naturalne..._remedies.html#
This looks like spam. Could you please tell us what is this thing ? Is it some compound of HCl (acid) and how it might help ? I suggest that people avoid clicking links on such posts without hesitation, regardless of the number of posts and rep of the OP.
IBS Free after about 8 years ! But, I got a hiatal hernia due to the constipation I used to have. Oh well.
Only need to take care of my anxiety and fix sleep issues.

i just looked it up on webmd:
i really don't think this would be a good idea for anyone to take without at first consulting their doctor. also i don't think it would be good to take if you already have GERD (reflux) like i do.
and there was this warning as well from webmd:
Peptic ulcer disease: There is a concern that the hydrochloric acid produced from betaine hydrochloride might irritate stomach ulcers or keep them from healing.

I had GERD/Gastritis and I got it almost 100% fixed with Gastro-Ven.
I am now taking PR-Digest + HCL and it seems to workout pretty well.
You are right though, a Doctor should be consulted on this.

Thanks, everyone. I read a bunch of reviews, and it seems that I should talk to someone before taking HCL. Now, to find a decent gastro doc!
