Hey ppl,

I noticed that when I have little or no bitter taste in the mornings I often feel bette in the day. Is that true for everyone?

However, I noticed that when I wake up with a bitter taste in my mouth my day is pretty much bad. Mew ing my symptoms and that taste linger on the whole day.


Or it doesn't matter? You still get all your symptoms.

If I wake with nausea it's usually pay back for something I did the previous day (albeit unknowingly) and it will take me all that day and sometimes 2 to 3 days to get back to whatever level I was at beforehand.

Nickles,
 
For years I suffered terrible GERD, and I was on Nexium for a good 2 + years, without much help.
Then when I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, and the meds didn't work for me, I had to come up with some alternatives to help myself, which worked great in putting my UC in remission.
BUT as a side effect of a few of the steps I did, my GERD went away.
So I thought I would share these with you:
1) After every meal, I would use organic slippery elm powder, about 1 1/2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon in 1-2 oz. of room temp filtered water, wait for it to gel just a little and then drink it down. What the slippery elm powder does is: it coates the whole alimentary canal.
2) I started a food combining diet, and that made a huge difference, because if you mis-combine the wrong foods it will create havoc, gas, distension, and the acid will back up....painfully so. Here's a link that explains about the food combining: http://cureforulcerativecolitis.com/step-1-methodology-to-eating
Since doing these steps, I have ZERO GERD! What a relief! I even get to sleep through the night without that aweful chlorox-like burn that used to wake me up by choking me.
You can rest assured your doctor won't tell you about these 2 steps because he/she probably doesn't know about them, and it doesn't put money in his/her pocket (or big pharma's pocket) if you are cured and never come back for this complaint.
Anyone try these methods?

Hi,

I heard about food combination, but I never fully implemented it.
The link you provide is for a book to buy. I believe your story, but I am weary of certain sites that make their site all nice and a cure for everything that make you buy a book at the end.

But I think you may be on to something with the diet. Is there another link or book I can check out at a library or buy at amazon.

Thanks. I am happy for you.

Nickles,
 
It's up to you. I don't blame you for being skeptical. I ws pretty wary myself. But the system works. You can google or do an amazon search for food combining books if you prefer.
 
What about the slippery elm powder?

What brand of slippery elm powder?
Where did you get it?


My other reason for hesitating with that diet, is weight loss.

I weigh 125 pds and I am about 5"8.

How much do you currently weigh and how many punds did you lose from this diet?

Nickles,
 
I get mine from Pacific Botanicals in Oregon.
I used to get that "sore throat" too. It's all gone. :-)
They have a 2 pound minimum, and @ $20/lb it will cost you, with shipping, around $50. BUT this will last you probably for a good year.
Here's the link the specific organic slippery elm bark powder.
You can also get it from: Mountain Rose.
Let me know what happens when you try it.
Do you know how to use it?
 
 
You can get some weight loss, if you stick mostly to proteins.
But if you have the other foods (properly combined of course), it might shave off maybe 1 pound or 2 initially until your body adjusts to digesting more efficiently, and then you'll be back to normal.  The biggest plus is: No More GERD!
