Just curious if anyone has tried a juicing fast to cure their GERD or LPR? I just watched the movie "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" and have read all the success stories online, including a few who said their acid reflux completely went away after doing a juice detox of 7-30 days. I just ordered a juicer and can't wait to try it! I'm reading more and more about the dangers of PPIs and other pills and am determined to stay off them!

my acid reflux is 90% better. I took Apple Cider Vinegar 'Mothers' a lot. I started feeling benefits after 30 days. I also stay away from sodas, pasta, tomatoes, oranges. drink lots of water. Too many people run for the meds. This condition can sometimes be helped rather easily.

I have had quite a bit of success with raw cabbage juice. Aloe Vera helping as well.

I have not done a juicing fast but I do juice every morning for breakfast and it is the only thing I have during the day that doesn't cause reflux. When I first got my juicer I thought it was going to be one of those things that I try it for a week and then stop but it's going on about 2 months and I still use it every day. I too watched the movie and that is what inspired me. Good luck and I hope it helps you.

There seems to be a combination of a few legitimate success stories with the juicing and those where juicing causes stomach discomforts, for the lack of being able to process the fruits and vegetables without causing gas pains. It's definitely worth a try, especially when we are all desperate for solutions. Some of us have root causes like hernias and other things that make most any remedy ineffective. I had a very small hernia, but still had symptoms too severe to have anything like this help. I'll note that I've always kept a healthy diet, and even physically active most of the time.

I bought a juicer after my surgery because it became completely impossible to get any pulp what so ever past my wrap from the nissen fundoplication surgery. Only the liquids would get past to my stomach for the first month or so, and even still at 9 weeks post-surgery I'll avoid eating most fruits and vegetables. There are exceptions, but that would make this post too long.
