I am more trying to wean off of the PPI's now doctor says keep taking them but at the same time i had an endoscopy last week and he says everything looks fine, no irritation... asked him about
smaller dose and he just told me to keep taking 40mg for the month when I know 20 mg does the job since I've tested it. I'm going to give it a go and try and manage reflux with portion control and zantac with some natural stuff as well to keep things flowing. I dont like the PPI side effects of constipation etc. PPI imo is something you take if your stomach and esophagus needs healing otherwise you take histomine blockers which allow a bit more acid into your stomach given they dont block all the acid producing channels like PPI just the major one which is stomach histamine.
Its amazing how much I've read on this crap ... to think 2 months ago I had no idea what any of this stuff was and was nutritionally illiterate.
I just found this new thing called sequential eating read some good results about
it I'm going to give it a go. I also puree all my foods now for max digestive speed and efficiency getting them out of the stomach as fast as possible.
Good luck btw, I'm glad there are forums like this to talk about
