I developed GERD at the ripe old age of 18. I began experiencing chronic sore throats, which my MD at the time suggested was acid reflux, because I was in continual pain and had no signs of respiratory infection. I thought she was wrong, simply... (more)

I found that my GERD got worse on a VLC diet of under 50g a day. Now I've upped them to to the 75-125g daily range, and my GERD has disappeared. I think it had to do with digestion, as I'm now eating more tubers and squashes which are easier on my... (more)

Hello all. I am new here and am hoping that folks might have some advice for GERD. I've seen many other posts here on the subject, but I haven't seen anything yet on how to take a safe phased approach to addressing it. Like some other posters... (more)

I had horrible acid reflux for a long time and got off the prilosec after a period of time, and this was before I discovered paleo, so the solutions should hopefully work regardless of diet. What I learned was: Quit stuffing myself. Ok, that's... (more)

Doctors know very little about dietary issues with GERD. I highly recommend a book by Norman Robilard "Fast Track Digestion: Heartburn". It goes against CW, but IMHO it's right on. Fat is not the problem, SIBO is. When there's LPR in particular,... (more)

Although I think the other responses are great I just want to add a couple of suggestions of my own: 1) Good that you are off Prilosec. You might want to go on a low carb diet (<60 grams/day) to see if your GERD is caused by SIBO. If it is... (more)

Burping after eating and drinking is perfectly natural, as we consume quite a bit of air every time we swallow (via our noses), which avoids creating a "vacuum" by stabilizing air pressure inside our heads. Plug your nose and swallow, and you'll... (more)

The damage to your gut took longer than 6 months to occur. Healing may take years. Though this isn't a magic cure for all that ails ya, there is probably still quite a bit of damage to your gut, even after 6 months.
