Has anyone tried removing breads, cereals and pasta's out of their diet?  I've been doing some research recently and people swear huge success in curing gerd symtoms.
Can anyone share their experience/knowledge in this?

It seems to work pretty well for me.

I've been getting heartburn pretty much my whole life. I had a endoscope done last year, which showed an ulcer on my oesaphugeal sphincter. They put me on parriet, which I was on for about 8 months. It worked really well, but I didn't want to take it forever. When I stopped parriet about a month ago I got a major rebound effect, which I managed by eating tonnes of gaviscon. Then last weekend my heartburn was the worst I'd ever had in my life so I am sure it was doing major damage. I thought I was going to have to go back on the parriet. Finally, I remembered that the low carb diet helped my heartburn a long time ago, so I gave it another shot. It is a vast improvement. I am still figuring some things out with it, but I would definitely give it a shot if you are currently managing with antacids and OTC drugs.

I've had the opposite reaction. The carbs help my GERD. I however cannot tolerate corn or any type of nut. Everyone is different so try it out. I hope it works!

Yes, I also had the opposite reaction recently when I did Atkins for three months. The GERD flared up during that time. Everyone is different.
