Hi. My name is Chris and I am a new member. I have been lurking here since suffering severe GERD nearly 12 months ago (severe chest pains (I've had 4 ecg's), referred pain etc).
I am in late 40's and live in Singapore, from Australia where my family live. I travel frequently and my diet can be somewhat up and down, particularly in out of the ways parts of what we call 2nd-3rd world countries
I have decided since yesterday to quit pantoprazole (40mg) smhair  after starting DGL Licorice on Monday and also modifying my diet severely. I have started following the "Eat Right for you Type" diet (er4yt), cut out all wheat etc. However I have been taking colofac (mebeverine hydrochloride) for IBS flare this week. Had IBS for many years. They all seem to go hand in hand.
I have lived in a couple of different places the last three years, China then Mexico where I became severely ill with typhoid and had to be sent back to Aus. This may have excaerbated my reflux problems which I have had for many years. The typhoid also caused problems with my thyroid, picked up by a thoughtful doctor (and friend) in Aus, which responded to treatment.
Has anyone here tried the er4yt diet? If so how did you respond? I have thought for many years that certain things weren't good for me, the essentials of life like wheat, alcohol, chocolate, coffee (caffeine) etc. I do miss them!
Cheers, Chris

Hi Geodoc,
Welcome to Healing Well! Wow! You're quite the world traveler. What a wonderful experience for you. Unfortunately, I can't help you with the er4yt diet. I've actually never heard of it. (I'll have to check it out on the web.) Hopefully there will be others who can share their experiences with you soon. I know Alcie has had a lot of experiences with elimination diets, and found help with her GERD through that process. Good luck! I hope you find an answer to your question very soon.
Happy Traveling!
