Good article that seems to correspond with my problems as when i take PPI i get worse and my tounge gets whiter.
He says that limiting acid contributes to bacterial overgrowth and increased abdominal pressure.
So taking PPIs or H2s lowers the acid in stomach which will make the bacterias overgrow.
I haven't taken one acid pill in almost 3 weeks now and feeling much better, yes i have gastritis and soar throat but it's much better and not as acute as before.
Doing proper diet is what makes me get around and have it under control and Probiotics(Proviva) as liquid twice each day, also i have lost weight from 118kg to 91kg today in 3 months time
I do beleive 110% in treating GERD the natural way.
