Hi gilly girl, I do have gerd, maybe almost 2 years, recently find my own finding and research, as and asian we do like hot and spicy food, and sour too. I remember I do really love that kind of food. That time I was still very young , 15 to 29 yrs. old. But as we grew older as now I'm 46, the efect came. I've gone tru a lot of examination, even endoscopy and also anuscopic (Hope I said it right) they find nothing of any harmful thing. Then I was told that i have GERD, the doctor told me million of people have it. I was advise to change my lifestyle, less spicy food, no coffee,alcohol bla..bla... I took almost any medication people and Dr. recomended to me. Nothing change, only short period. It happen again, Reflux and heart burn. Finally I meet a lady, she is a Pharmacy, she recomended me PROBIOTIC , it either in capsule or liquid form. Wallah after 3 months no more attck. But not just that, I took also guarana, one of my friend recomended me, it getting better and better, I can take spicy food again, and drink what ever I like. Why dont you try it, find out at the pharmacy near your place. If you want me to help buying for you email at (email address removed to protect you from spammers)
