Hi everyone,


Been a chronic heartburn sufferer for many years (I just turned 29), and I am trying to get to the bottom of possible dietary causes. In addition to heartburn, I've had other GI issues that have never been resolved (and also Hashimoto's thyroid disease). Has anyone here had any experience with a low amine diet? Since early childhood I have had problems with chocolate, coffee, and broccoli, and I was trying to find a chemical connection linking these most problem of problem foods together. Amines? Oxalates? Salicylates?

I'm getting a little desperate: I'm already taking prilosec 20 mg and have been for a long time, and I'm really reluctant to bump up the dose seeing as how I'm so young and I'm not a very big person, 5'3" 118lbs.

Thoughts, experiences, suggestions VERY welcome!

Also, I'm allergic to advil and other NSAIDs (hives and swelling)

Hi GroverCat,
Welcome to Healing Well!  Sorry to hear you're struggling with GERD.  You're definitely in the right place, as there are many here in the same boat.  There are quite a few young members as well.
 
I wish I could help with your quest for answers, but it's out of my realm.  I do know there are quite a few members who are searching for answers through dietary changes.  I expect one or more of them will be by to share their thoughts and support.
 
Glad you've joined the forum!
Best wishes,

I think with problems with salicylates there are other symptoms such as urticaria and a known intolerance of Aspirin and Ibuprofen.
