Hey Stephanie.........already wrote on the other post. It certainly sounds like a complex disease. GERD could be control much of the time by diet. I think other things are already going on and perhaps GERD kicks in as stress. Don't know. If that taste gets too nasty, Twilite, have you read about bile..ugh. I'm not much on holistic, but it has merit.
Marsha..are you still taking Zelnorm?? Just curious. I do hope it helps people. I'm not going there. It's never been offered and I'm not asking. I do have to find a way around it though. Someone thought apple juice, prune juice used to be the big one, hot oatmeal makes a big difference for me. Water soluable fiber and lowers my choelestrol.
I think of Crohn's, UC along w/Lupus being shotgun disorders. (fms is as well) Something goes off and it scatters and pops up everywhere.
Besides the gum that helps H.Pylori, I just discover that something I used to take helps lower it. Vitamin C....that's easy. I don't digest vitamins and forget about them.
