Question: Hi Doctor,
Do you have a product that helps with stomach acid? I just spent 2 days in hospital with what I thought was a heart attack and was told it was Hyperchlorhydria, excessive stomach acid.
Answer: I called Sean and we spent about 30 minutes on the phone going over the events that led up to him going to the hospital. We also discussed nutritional options, one of them being Calm, and talked about the “Home Land, Ireland”, as we both have a ties to County Derry. Below is a antioxidant rich soup and salad combo I sent Sean. At home we have this 2-3 times per week and I never get tired of it.
Here you go, enjoy!
Trader Joe’s Organic Roasted Tomato and Red Pepper Soup (use 2 red bell peppers per box of soup)
Cut 2 red bell peppers into pieces and place on a roasting pan lined with foil (optional is adding 1-2 tomatoes and/or garlic)
Coat with olive oil and add sea salt and pepper
Roast under broiler till slightly charred
Place in blender with some of the soup or water and blend
Pour in a pot with the soup from the box, heat and serve
Fresh baby spinach in a bowl with some olive oil, sea salt and pepper
Optional is adding sliced red bell peppers
Sean’s Response: Hi Dr. Ettinger,
Sincere thanks for the call, truly appreciated. It is very rare to find someone who expresses such concern especially since we’ve never met. Will order the product tomorrow and to be honest with you, my gut tells me you’re correct. What a blessing and a relief to be in touch with someone as yourself who has a pulse on our misguided and more oft times our own ignorance of the true meaning of what nature intended. Fortunately for me I am a great believer in mother nature, just needed a nudge.
My blessings to you and your family, and if I’d a few pints of Guinness in me I might be inclined to sing a rendition of the DERRY AIR (Danny Boy). Did you know that there is a little Catholic Church in Orange that says the Mass in Gaelic every Sunday. Not sure if it’s still there, but every year they held an Irish festival. It’s been so long I can’t remember the name but I’m sure it wouldn’t be hard to find.
