PPIs won't stop reflux and stopping your food triggers won't cure a non-closing LES.
You can probably search one of my old posts on food logs and challenge testing. Finding my food intoerances stopped my reflux almost completely. I still needed Nexium because of a bad LES, but the refluxing stopped.
Unfortunately, due to a bad wreck that shoved my stomach into my chest I still had to get the fundoplication. But I still have to keep away from my trigger foods (all mine contain sulfites) because I can still get the heaving and tachycardia that follows mine.
BTW, the orange "sweet potatoes" are yams. The nearly white ones are the real Jersey sweet potatoes, not as sweet as the yams, but as much fiber.
