I dont mind disagreement. If there wasnt any this world wouldnt get anywhere...
So what do you mean Norm that you predict problems? What kind of problems?
BTW... Does anyone know what is in apples that eliminates the heartburn? I am looking, like Im sure the rest of the world is, for a cause AND cure. Not just a remedy like eating apples. The apples baffle me, because arent they acidic like many other fruits? So if it can be distinguished what it is in apples, maybe there are other things I can try so I dont turn into an apple.
See, this is becoming my frustration... I have now been reading all kinds of testimonials and theories, but no one has given any reasons why they work, just that they work. The only explanation I have read is yours Norm that says while breaking down carbs excessive gas is given off causing reflux.....(Did I get that right?).
BTW - There are a couple things I have eaten since I can remember and they invlovle sandwiches. I absolutely love bread. Isnt bread a synonym for carbohydrates?...LOL...anyway....if I want to eat something that I KNOW will absolutely not give me heartburn, I eat a bread, turkey and cheese sandwich. Can you help me understand that while carbs might cause reflux, I get no heartburn from bread? Is your theory that the reflux is the problem not the acid?
Also, I still wonder why smoking or drinking MIGHT cause acid reflux. Anyone? (besides the carbs in alcohol).
