Greetings,

One of THE main causes of acid reflux and heartburn, surprisingly enough, is not ENOUGH stomach acid to properly digest our food. The other main cause is a sluggish, clogged colon and/or constipation.

"Doctor's have often told someone their heartburn is an over-acid stomach and without fail so far; Iridology indicated that they were lacking acid. When they took a product that contained HCL (hydrochloric acid) their chronic heartburn went away."
http://www.marysherbs.com/anatomy/anat-stoP.htm

When the stomach doesn't produce enough acid (or the acid is watered down by large volumes of fluid taken with the meal), the food doesn't digest properly (or fast enough), and so the stomach just sits there half-full trying to digest...which leads to the "burpiness" that makes acid reflux.

Also, when one is not having regular bowel movements (2-3 daily, or one for every major meal), the food is not moving through the system fast enough...which causes the same 'burpiness'. Ask almost anyone who has only a few bowel movements weekly if they have heartburn, and you'll almost ALWAYS hear, "yes!".

It's my understanding that when one experience acid reflux/heartburn on an empty stomach, the most effective thing to do is take some type of HCL supplement...which will aid the stomach in digesting and 'moving along' whatever food is still in the stomach causing the burping.

Of course, there are other things to consider...coffee, carbonated beverages and a multitude of foods (especially meat) cause 'acid stomach' - however, citrus does NOT. But the main cause is NOT the normal stomach acid...it's the fact that it's going upward into your esophagus where you can feel it, rather than staying in your stomach where it belongs. And if that's happening, it's generally because food is staying in your stomach too long.

SO, when one starts a fast, and loads the stomach up with water mixed with lemon (which dilutes the stomach acid a LOT), occasionally one gets "heartburn"...it's not from the water/lemon/syrup/pepper (none of which increase stomach acid production), so it seems to be caused by diluting the stomach acid while there's still food to be digested.

At least, that's how I understand it.
