Popcorn has been so hard to give up. I had some at a movie a while ago, and I did a calorie deficit and followed it with a long walk. Was it optimal? Probably not, but the point is to make overall beneficial changes, not torment ourselves.

You can either take it out and see if your GERD improves and then reintroduce it later or continue using it to treat your GERD. That's what's tricky about food sensitivities. You never know what's triggering what. That's why people say to take... (more)

Paleo diet helps with acid reflux but in my case it doesn't eliminate it. In fact, neither do any of the PPIs (even Dexilant + Zantac + Domperidone). I tried D-limonene, though, and it does seem to help. What are your thoughts on whether this is... (more)

It seems I get a bet of nausea and acid reflux right after a drink cream on an empty stomach. I use ecological cream and I take lactrase enzymes with it so that the lactose won't be a problem. Why do I get this symptoms?

Lactose may not be the problem. Lots of people cannot tolerate casein, which is a protein found in milk. There is no pill to reduce casein, like there is for lactose. A big dose of fat on an empty stomach may cause reflux.

Acid reflux is typically too little stomach acid, not too much. When you ate the highly acidic "Cheerios", it balanced the acidity temporarily.
