I just read the low carb thread...but....I still have some questions.  First. let me say, I would stop eating altogether if I could and get rid of this acid reflux.  I have battled for 2 years. This past June, I quit meds and started drinking vinegar water.  This really worked and I thougth I was cured.  Well, 2 weeks ago....it all came back.  I went to my doctor and he gave me reglan since none of the ppi drugs worked.  I still have this horrible belching, chest pain, gas, etc.....It really interferes with my life.  I don't eat much at all, so it is not a problem I have after meals.  I probably don't eat enough but who wants to eat when you get to have a chunk of it in your throat after the meal?  So....will the low carb help?

Hi Hearty,
Sorry to hear it's back. I know what you have been going through. It's a miserable feeling.
If you have read my other posts, you know I believe eating the right carbs and limiting the bad ones will stop your reflux dead in it's track.

When you did the vinegar did you buy the organic vinegar with the "mother" or distilled vinegar (which does not work for me)?

Also, I wanted to mention that I eat a high complex carbohydrate diet, low fat and take enzymnes and my reflux seems to be under control for now (thank heaven) I had been gaggin on it, beleive me so I do symphathize with you.

Kay.....I tried both kinds....and I was so impressed...it got to where I would forget to drink my vinegar water because I was feeling so well....but then it came back....I could cry...really!!

What kind of enzymes? Where do I get them?
