    Started Betaine HCI for silent reflux

    Had a constant sensation of a swollen throat or frog in throat, so went to my MD. He didn't see anything so sent me to an ENT. He pulled out my tongue, looked down my throat and said it was red and swollen and I had silent reflux. I seldom ever experience heartburn, no bloating, no belching, etc. He gave me a list of foods not to eat and some other life-style change instructions and said if I don't get better, come back. I went home and started to research silent reflux and discovered that some of the top MD's in the country say it's from lack of stomach acid and NOT from too much. Taking prescribed or over the counter acid reducers just make the problem worse, even though they may mask some of the symptoms and that can lead to more serious issues down the road, including stomach cancer. I decided to try Betaine HCI after reading that the same well-known MD's strongly suggested it. The first two days, I just took one with lunch and dinner, per their instructions and felt improved yesterday. Then yesterday I started getting this sweet taste in my mouth that won't go away and woke up with it today too. My bs sugar is good, so it's not diabetes. I think today I will do the 2 caps with my meals. Has anyone experienced this sweet taste in their mouth with silent reflux? Any success with Betaine HCI for silent reflux?

    Morning, I tried HCL it did not work for me actually caused more problems. You say that you read many MD recommend it. Do you mean ND? I have not seen any medical doctors recommend it just natropathic doctors. Best of luck.

    Yes, regular MD's. I have a couple of books here written by them and there's a couple of very famous doctors that have websites and support using it. I don't think I can say their names here?
