Magnesium oxide and hydrochloric acid
I just turned 21 and I have been dealing with chronic disease for about 3 years now including a very aggressive autoimmune disorder along with suspected chronic Lyme and coinfections. I have constantly done tons of research on all sorts of different aspects of health on both the allopathic and alternative sides in the quest to regain my health and understand what is going on. I recently came across Soylent and I really like the idea of it, yet I'm skeptical about a few ingredients in the official Soylent - especially calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide in particular. I already ordered a week's supply regardless to give it a fair try and see if it helps me in any way. I haven't come across any discussion about calcium carbonate and magnesium oxide on these forums so far, so I decided to make this thread.
Anyway, when I was searching for answers to my health issues (for which every doctor I have seen so far has been totally and utterly useless in solving) I came across a guy named Hveragerthi on curezone.com who debunked a lot of bullshit that circulates around on curezone and I found him to be very intelligent and helpful. He was able to help massively reduce the severity of my autoimmune with his advice where all the doctors I have seen failed entirely, and as a result I have a lot of respect for him and his information.
Note: Skip this paragraph if you have no interest in learning about autoimmune. If anyone else is dealing with autoimmune or is just interested in this information he has a brilliant writeup on autoimmune disorders here: and the basic gist of it is this: "Autoimmune disorders result from immune suppression, not hyperactivity as is commonly believed. It is the suppression of the adrenal glands that leads to the over production of low affinity (nonspecific) antibodies that tag healthy tissues for destruction. The rest of the immune system does its job just as it is supposed to. This is also why immune suppressants, such as stress, stimulants and steroids actually make autoimmune conditions worse."
