GOT ACID REFLUX? I did too. It started with a chronic cough, pain, burning, choking sensation...I tried every over the counter product possible...I saw my primary care doctor, an allergist, a gastroenterologist, an Ear Nose and Throat doctor, and finally had a barium swallow test swallowing a nasty chalky substances...it showed I had a Sliding Hiatal Hernia with spontaneous reflux. I drank gallons of milk trying to soothe the burn. I drank bottles of Mylanta, and always had a bottle of antacids nearby. I tried Nexium, Prilosec, Aciphex, Pepcid and even considered surgery. The acid reflux persisted. For three freaking years I slept nearly upright. For three years I avoided red wine, tomato sauces, oranges and all of the other "acidic" foods I was told to avoid. The acid reflux continued. I didn't give up the fight...I went the holistic route...tried to get "adjustments" from a chiropractor to push my "hiatal hernia" back in. Tried yoga to relax more. Tried ginger tea. Cut out caffeine. Took more magnesium. The acid reflux didn't give... And then, just when I nearly gave up and thought I would just have to live with it...I made one change to my diet that I thought would never ever make any sort of difference, and there it was, completely gone forever within 3 DAYS of making this change, after 3 YEARS of almost daily suffering, my chronic cough was gone and has never come back! So what was that change? I cut out dairy. I had been eating it for years without any apparent problems so I would have never suspected it would be the culprit of my digestive troubles. I had an IgA food intolerance test that showed I was sensitive to it. Since I cut out dairy almost two years ago I haven't had reflux since...(except for the few times I accidentally consumed something that contained dairy). Will cutting dairy be the change that makes all the difference of you? I don't know. But don't give up. You have to dig deeper to find the root cause. You may be one small change away from feeling well! That's what this Facebook page, blog, and book is all about....making lifestyle changes for better health.
