Autoimmune Conditions Affect Stomach Acid

1017_woman holding gut stomach.png

Parietal cells are found in the stomach and have two very important jobs. First, parietal cells make stomach acid that digests the food we eat. This acid is extremely significant in helping with digestive motility, breakdown of food to facilitate absorption of nutrients and even helps to prevent reflux of food into the esophagus by communicating to the band between the stomach and esophagus to stay closed during digestion. Secondly, parietal cells secrete a glycoprotein called intrinsic factor that allows for absorption of B12 in the small intestine.

Save on Holiday Plane Tickets


The easiest way to save money on airfare is by being flexible, because flying on certain days at certain times can be more affordable.

That is why applying the actions of intention are essential to navigating these universal truths.

Autism: A Whole-Body Disorder Affecting the Brain

Collective Treatment Efforts Yield Better Results


By Gabriella True

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in 68 children has autism spectrum disorder, or ASD. Autism affects individuals in five areas: communication, social skills, learning, behaviors and medical. Dr. Bernard Rimland challenged the notion that autism has a psychological origin rather than a physical one in his 1964 book, Infantile Autism: The Syndrome and Its Implication for a Neural Theory of Behavior. Newer scientific studies also challenge the idea autism is genetically hardwired and not treatable. For example, we now know that treating medical issues can positively impact the other four areas. Some treatments may create rapid improvements while others happen slowly. The collective effect of several treatments can be considerable.
