Do you keep a food diary?????? It's probably something you ate. Keep a food diary to compare and check back on foods that cause you problems.
I think movement is always good for our body but I would say that when I had the bad GERD symptoms (with severe nausea, dizziness and throat lump) I really didn't feel much like going out for walks etc.
I cured myself with DGL licorice, that's a FACT for me. Try it for yourself too, can't hurt you. I don't know how many of you can keep going on and on with these problems and going from drug to drug. There was no way that was going to happen to me and I only had GERD symptoms for one month and took Prilosec for one month! I did something immediately about it, after much research on this site and elsewhere, and got rid of the GERD in ONE MONTH.
I have to say that what scared me the most was reading about all of you being in with this condition for sooooooo LONG! I knew I had to really be very disciplined in the way I chose to heal myself.
I didn't post how bad I felt from day to day. What do you all think, that it was a picnic for me??? I felt horrible for almost the whole month that I was doing the healing. I felt like giving up many times and going back to some other drug (like my doctor was telling me to do), BUT I knew, from reading on this site, that it was just going to be a vicious circle of going from one drug to another. Going from one procedure to another and it would never end.
I cannot see complaining about new symptoms all the time and not doing something about it!!!! I gave up EVERYTHING to help myself (sugar, wheat, even decaf coffee). I didn't use alcohol that much so that was easy and I have never smoked so that was good too. I also took alot of Advil (well, not that much, maybe 1 or 2 a day) for pain from a fall and I think it contributed greatly to me getting GERD. I now don't take anything - maybe a Tylenol if needed. Will never take drugs in any form again unless I need them for surgeries or if I'm in a hospital.
If any of you are smokers or drinkers and have not given it up (to the point at least to try to heal yourselves), then you can complain all you want. It will never get better for you. You cannot put all those poisons into your system and expect to get better.
I heard something interesting recently on the Dr. Phil Show. His wife was on and talked about giving up sugar years ago for her health and she said sugar is a POISON. I never thought of it that way, but after researching alkaline food you realize how many poisons we put into our bodies.
Good luck to everyone, I know that if you have the consistency you can also heal yourselves. There's enough information on this site, if you read all the postings going back to last Sept., to heal yourselves too.
