Sunbeam: Thank you for sharing the diet and for checking in on me.
Norm's theory is that Small Intenstinal Bacterial Overgrowth from eating hard to digest carbohydrates causes excess inflammation and gas in the small intestine which then puts pressure on the stomach and the LES, which from all the pressure pops open when it should not. It is posible that if this diet eliminates the issues in the small intestine , it may help the LES function better, thus helping with bile reflux. I hope that makes sense. I am not a doctor, I am just guessing!
