I've been a member here for almost 2 yrs and I was reading post for a year before that. In that time I've read thousands of post and I believe I've read only one success story and several failures. It's your body to do what you will, however I'd rather believe the word of members here (and their doctors) vs some "fluffed" up studies. I've been dealing with gerd for over 18 years and believe me, if you put faith in every government/big pharm/doctor study...oh boy.
My conscious is clear......I wish you the best.....good luck!
