Heartburn Is Vomiting Lite

Vomiting relieves gaseous pressurization (doctor-speak for “gas pressure”).

That’s why vomiting eases a gall bladder attack.

Heartburn is Vomiting Lite.

Heartburn is incomplete vomiting.

Both involve the stomach and the upper five feet of the small intestine.

The small intestine is ten feet long when alive and “coiled.”

It’s twenty feet long when dead and “uncoiled.”

“Leaky gut” leaks both ways, and is a major cause of “bottom-up” gas pressure counteracting “top-down” gas pressure in the food pipe (esophagus).


“Gasbag” is slang for stomach.

(gasbag — 1. stomach. “The way to a dude’s ticker is through his gasbag.” 2. “windbag,” excessive talker. — Slang Dictionary, 2017, by Atom Bergstrom, 991 pages)


According to the Sacramento Union, May 17, 1922 …

“Is Your Stomach A Gas Bag?

“Don’t be a human ‘blimp!’ Take Bnalmann’s Gas Tablets and correct the digestive weakness that causes excessive gas to form in your stomach and bowels. You will soon get rid of those pains around your heart. There will be no more palpitation — no difficult breathing — no drowsiness after eating — no nervous, anxious feeling — no bloating — no gnawing, empty feeling at the pit of the stomach. There will be no more gas pressure to restrict circulation and make your hands and feet feel cold and numb. You Can eat what you like, without: fear, because Bnalmann’s Gas Tablets not only relieve but prevent stomach distress. They act upon the nerves controlling the process of digestion, gradually helping to build them up and restore their normal activity. See that you get the genuine Bnalmann’s Gas Tablets in the yellow package. Price one dollar.”


Temperature affects gas pressure just as gas pressure affects temperature (think pressure cooker).

An under-the-tongue temperature of 99° Fahrenheit combined with a stomach temperature of 100° Fahrenheit is ideal for the digestion of food.

Four ounces of liquid (1/4 cup) at 50° Fahrenheit combined with a meal stops the digestion for 30 minutes.

Drinking iced tea with a meal isn’t a pleasant experience for the “poor little man in the dark.”

Adding ice to tea drops the temperature to 32° Fahrenheit in three minutes.

Chefs calibrate their food thermometers with this “three-minute iced tea test.”


The poor little man in the dark is terrified of icy Big Gulps (32 ounces of liquid, including 4 ounces of ice).

A Super Big Gulp contains 44 ounces of liquid, including 6 ounces of ice.

A Double Gulp contains 64 ounces of liquid, including 9 ounces of ice.

Papaya or bromelain enzymes don’t stand a chance in such an Arctic environment.


The Coca-Cola Company suggests that Coke should be served at 36-38° Fahrenheit.

Lagers are supposedly “best” at 42-48° and ales at 44-52° Fahrenheit.


Overeating also stops stomach digestion.

No matter how large it can stretch, the stomach’s chemical output is finite.

Excess food causes digestion to grind to a halt, and “if persevered in, generally produces, not only functional aberration, but disease of the coats of the stomach.”


Sitting down after eating slows digestion.

Lying down slows digestion even more.

Guess what the quadratus lumborum muscles have to do with digestion?

Stomach CHURNING (transversely and longitudinally) is necessary for digestion.

The quadratus lumborum muscles put the sway in Ms. Lateral Pelvic Sway.

These quadrilateral-shaped muscles put the wiggle in our walk.


What causes NERD (non-erosive reflux disease) to convert into GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)?

Nitric oxide.

Take the advice of the late great Robin Williams …

    Fried onions normally strongly stimulate hydrochloric acid secretion, but if someone doesn’t LIKE fried onions, as little as zero hydrochloric acid may be secreted.

      “Fried onions normally strongly stimulate hydrochloric acid secretion, but if someone doesn’t LIKE fried onions, as little as zero hydrochloric acid may be secreted.”

      1) Can I fry them in ghee to get the same effect?
      2) Why is ingesing fried onion have that effect? What is the principle at hand?
      3) What other foods stimulate hydrochloric acid secretion? Can you name a few foods from each growth zone?

        1) Yes.

        2) Onions are a stomachic, including onion ODOR.

        3) Sun-dried black olives for breakfast. Green onions at midday.

          Is it the sulfur in onions that stimulate the stomach?
          How about aromatic herbs? Cumind, oregano, thyme, coriander etc?

          Green onions are in season here!

            Sulfur is often involved.

            Spicy foods stimulate appetite but are not necessarily “good” for the stomach and intestines.

    According to Adano Ley (Swami Nitty-Gritty) …

    “When the student is ready, a Master will appear. India has come to you because India is here already. The Indwelling Deity is in you. Once you realize where the Indwelling Deity is, that it’s IN YOU, then it’s the individual’s living and his consciousness that can exude to you and make you recognize this Indwelling Deity is acting as Guru to you.”

    Andrew Murray: “What are your thoughts on the cancer-promoting effects of nitric oxide?”

    Ray Peat: “I think it’s one of the central factors in keeping cancer going.”

    According to Swami Nitty-Gritty …

    “I stayed in delta for fifteen minutes, and became a Swami.

    “I stayed in delta for an hour, and became a Paramahansa.

    “I stayed in delta for two hours, and became a Siddha.

    “I stayed in delta for twelve hours, and became an Ascended Master, and went up to a faraway sterile corner of the universe.

    “But I looked back at Earth as a tiny blue ball, and I realized, ‘If all is one, I left myself behind.’

    “So I returned to Earth as a [descended] Manifest Master, and here I am, sitting in this chair, a Liberated Being, talking to myself as unliberated beings [pointing to us], and watching the whole thing as an Unidentified Principle.”
