Hydrochloric Acid IV Therapy

An IV drip with a blue curtain backgroundAt Balance of Life Clinic, we offer an array of integrative therapies that help balance the body and promote its self-healing mechanisms. We believe in a whole-body approach to healing through complementary, alternative medicine, including hydrochloric acid IV therapy, which can help improve the function of your digestive system and strengthen your immune system.

What is Hydrochloric Acid?

Hydrochloric acid, or HCI, is an acid naturally produced by the stomach to aid in digestion. HCI helps break down food and enables your body to more effectively absorb nutrients like proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals. Hydrochloric acid kills pathogenic microorganisms or harmful bacteria that enter the body through food and helps regulate the emptying of the digested contents of your stomach.

HCI can also act as an immune stimulant that increases white blood cell count and red cell oxygenation. Ramping up white blood cells helps your body fight off acute or chronic infections. When the body isn’t producing enough HCI, hydrochloric acid therapy can help give it a boost.

Dangers Of Hydrochloric Acid Depletion

Low stomach acid, called hypochlorhydria, occurs when your body doesn’t produce enough hydrochloric acid. Several common causes for low levels of stomach acid include age, stress, long-term use of antacids or other heartburn or acid reflux medications, bacterial infections, stomach surgery, overuse of antibiotics, and zinc deficiency.

When hydrochloric acid is deficient in your gastric fluid, it negatively impacts your metabolism. Because food isn’t being completely digested properly, your body isn’t getting all the benefits of the vitamins and minerals found naturally in your food supply. Painful Indigestion and other septic processes of the tissues may appear, leading to all kinds of digestive issues and degenerative diseases. HCI deficiency also impacts the functioning of the gallbladder and pancreas, which can lead to diabetes and gallstones.

Because low stomach acid causes a decrease in digestion, food can also begin to ferment, causing acid reflux. It may allow undigested pathogens to enter the small and large intestines, disrupting the balance of good bacteria in your gut, which can lead to digestive diseases and other medical issues, including:

  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Leaky gut syndrome
  • Celiac disease
  • Gallstones
  • Food allergies
  • Anemia
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Grave’s disease
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Skin problems, including acne, eczema, and psoriasis

Feeling overly full or bloated after eating a regular meal is one potential symptom of low stomach acid. Other symptoms include indigestion, flatulence, heartburn, diarrhea, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, anemia, brittle fingernails, and fatigue. Hydrochloric acid IV therapy and other integrative treatments can help ease these symptoms and offer additional benefits.

Benefits Of Hydrochloric Acid Therapy

Hydrochloric acid is necessary for complete, healthy digestion. Hydrochloric acid therapy increases stomach acid, which improves digestion. Improved digestion can relieve heartburn, indigestion, and acid reflux, and benefit stomach acid-related conditions, like GERD. It’s also an inexpensive treatment that strengthens key components of your immune system, and it offers a powerful way to fight back against invasive microorganisms, namely infection-causing bacteria, that want to wreak havoc on your body.

IV hydrochloric acid therapy has been proven as a safe, effective way of preventing the damaging consequences of severe metabolic alkalosis, a condition in which too much acid accumulates in your body. It’s also been used successfully to aid cancer recovery. Other conditions treated with hydrochloric acid therapy include:

  • Acute acid reflux
  • Digestive diseases
  • Hypochlorhydria
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cytomegalovirus
  • Epstein-Barr Virus
  • Lyme disease
  • Chronic infections

IV hydrochloric acid therapy has been used for more than 75 years in Western medicine, but its use declined with the introduction of antibiotics. With the rise of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, hydrochloric acid therapy has once again become a powerful treatment option with documented results.

What to Expect from Hydrochloric Acid IV Therapy

IV therapy should always be administered and monitored by a qualified healthcare professional. At Balance of Life Clinic, hydrochloric acid IV therapy is an infusion delivered directly to the bloodstream and is primarily used to boost and support the immune system and aid digestion. HCI is buffered and diluted and administered through a central vein, with the effects of the therapy closely monitored. Depending on the patient’s specific needs, it may be used in conjunction with other natural therapies.

You may see improvements and feel the effects of hydrochloric acid therapy in a short period of time. Your integrative medicine provider will determine how many sessions may provide the most benefit for your specific needs and goals, and provide instructions about what to do before and after treatment.
