Hello. This is a question to those of you who live in, or around, London. Does anyone know of a good nutritionalist who specialises in reflux. I'm sick of taking fifteen pills a day. I want to cure the root of the problem and find out why this is happening. Thanks very much

Rachl,
I have developed a theory that the root cause of reflux (including LPR) is the excess consumption of carbohydrates which feed intestinal microorganisms. These microbes in turn produce gas which drives reflux. It's a new way of looking at things. The approach based on this theory is to control the amount of carbs in your diet, especially starches.

All the best,

Rachl,

I have just started on the low carb diet and I seem to be feeling better in terms of my acid reflux. I haven't had heartburn/bloating or stomach pains as yet.I think it's worth giving it a try. I'm hoping to at least reduce my dose of medication.
