I have heard accupuncture and a chiropractor may help, I have not been to one yet. This is a very frustrating concition and it is definetly aggravated by anxiety and stress. I am getting married in a few weeks and my GERD has gone crazy. A suggestion is to only eat organic food (preservatives contain acid) and look up the Alkaline Diet. The diet is basically non-acidic fruits, vegetables, plain chicken, granola is ok for me, almonds, and a lot of water. Stay away from anything acidic. I believe that the longer I stay on this diet, I may be able to manage this without medication but it wikll take time. It is not a fun way to eat but it has helped me. Also try chewing gum, you saliva is akaline and may help. What else may help is breathing exercise to help your anxiety (I am a therapist and I use this and teach my clients with anxiety this) Breathe in for 4 seconds, breathe out for 4 seconds and then don't do anything for 4 seconds. Repeat the cycle. If you change the way you breathe you may decrease your anxiety. You may want to also look into meditation, although you have to get used to it. Instead of allowing GERD to take over you life you have to be proactive. I am on my second GI doctor next week (one of the best in my city) and I am hoping for some additional answers. If you are not happy with the doctors, keep looking or look into an Alternative Medicine Doctor.
