Acid Reflux Questions
For about two/three weeks now I've been feeling a strange emptiness sensation around my stomach area 10 minutes after eating. I was wondering if anyone ever experienced this as well? I'm having trouble figuring out where it could come from... (more)
When I was 16 years old I was diagnosed with acid reflux and IBS. I am now 25. Before I went Paleo a few months ago, whenever I experienced a bad reflux attack I learned by trial and error to eat some Cheerios to soothe the pain during the... (more)
Acid reflux is typically too little stomach acid, not too much. When you ate the highly acidic "Cheerios", it balanced the acidity temporarily.
95% of the dinners cooked by me for our family is Paleo. I've been trying to convince my kiddo that Paleo would be better for him. He can't have cow milk, but some products like yogurt seem to be fine. he's been forgoing cheese lately (by my... (more)
Does anyone have any experience stopping the use of acid reflux medication after a long period of use? I was diagnosed with GERD 12 years ago (at age 18), and doctor's have had me on different acid reflux medications since. I'm currently taking... (more)
Everyone on here (myself includes) seems to be under the impression that you should exercise. But, can exercise (especially intense, heavy lifting) cause GERD or aggravate symptoms? I ask because everything was going swimmingly with digestion up... (more)
Do you eat or drink just before you workout? I generally do my workouts fasted, having not eaten anything for 4-6 hours. I also try to limit my water intake for the 30-45 minutes before the workout too to make sure I don't have a stomach full of... (more)
So I think I need to give up on the HCL for right now. http://pureformulas.com/betaine-hcl-180-caps-by-pharmax.html Here's the betaine I've been using. I was using this http://www.healthegoods.com/betaine-plus-hp.html I was up to 2 pills per day... (more)
I'm trying to get off PPI's after 15+ years of being on them, but I feel like I'm having a lot of reflux. I know sometimes there's a "rebound effect" going off these drugs, but I'm not sure if I'm feeling that or a normal amount of stomach acid.... (more)
Hi friends: I've been juicing cabbage and celery for my nausea/gerd, but now that I'm doing the FODMAP elimination diet, I'm wondering if I can make a juice from cabbage (which is on the "NO" list for FODMAP sensitive folks). It's great for my... (more)
You can either take it out and see if your GERD improves and then reintroduce it later or continue using it to treat your GERD. That's what's tricky about food sensitivities. You never know what's triggering what. That's why people say to take... (more)
Hi all, thanks to your wisdom, I'm exploring the possibility that my continued/increased dietary discomfort on the paleo diet is related to FODMAPS sensitivity. I went through the archives here, and reviewed a few of the linked articles. I... (more)
Paleo diet helps with acid reflux but in my case it doesn't eliminate it. In fact, neither do any of the PPIs (even Dexilant + Zantac + Domperidone). I tried D-limonene, though, and it does seem to help. What are your thoughts on whether this is... (more)
My step dad has gradually (and mysteriously) lost his voice over the last couple of years. He can barely talk at all, and it is extremely frustrating to him. He's been to many doctors who all tell him there is nothing wrong, except for on his... (more)
I have found extensive information on the paleo diet and GERD--all of which seems rather logical, and I'm elated that so many people have been helped by the diet. My frequent urination, anxiety attacks, and mysterious back inflammation are a thing... (more)
I've had reflux since I was a kid, and been on Prilosec for 7 years or so now. After an endoscopy a few years ago I was diagnosed with a hiatal hernia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hiatus_hernia). I've been moving to a Paleo diet over the last... (more)
So I'm a pretty big fan of paleo, it works for me. I'm pretty active and I generally don't worry much about all the debates, i just do what seems to work for me. After all my random rants about paleo, my mom is curious and wondering how to change... (more)
I've been on a fairly restricted diet recently while trying to determine which foods I react poorly to. About a week ago I cooked a large amount of beans at home (not a food I'd eaten in a while) and ate them over the course of a few... (more)
I have IBS, Acid reflux, Anemia, Gastritis and a family history of Crohn's disease. (though I have not been diagnosed with Crohn's myself) I listed all these things because I wonder if they are related. Within two years, I've put on close... (more)
I came across paleo while i was looking for a medecine free way to rid myself of chronic acid reflux. I have had it for 18 years, it started when i was 12. I Also have been so tired every day for as long as I can remember that I could always... (more)
Someone I know has the following question for you all... What are some good foods to eat for someone who is pregnant and has severe acid refux? Before I resort to Zantac I want to find out what foods to eat and what to avoid to see if I can cure... (more)
Me and my girlfriend were doing Paleo together for the first time and gave it a good try but now I really don't feel right. The past 2 days I've had a tight feeling in my chest/esophagus, pressure in my upper stomach. It started 2 days ago where... (more)
There have been a few threads about cheats and popcorn, but I am curious about the 'best' way to do it. Not so much about alternatives, or the psychology of cheat days. One of my pleasures when going to the movies is popcorn. I know it is bad for... (more)
Popcorn has been so hard to give up. I had some at a movie a while ago, and I did a calorie deficit and followed it with a long walk. Was it optimal? Probably not, but the point is to make overall beneficial changes, not torment ourselves.
With any luck, Melissa from (HGL) can answer this one. Here's a current list of supplements I'm taking: Chelated Magnesium Wild Salmon Oil Licorce extract Probiotics Multi-vitamin B-vitamin complex Digestive enzymes Niacin Digestive Bitters HCL... (more)
Yikes. In my opinion that's just too much and makes it hard to ID what's even going on. WHy not try going off them and doing a very low carb diet? Also I'd ditch the HCL. It didn't help me very much. Have a protein rich breakfast of steak or some... (more)
Hi Paleo wizards: I've been struggling with my transition to a more highly compliant paleo lifestyle, and found that giving up Diet Coke and sugar (my main cheats) have actually led to an increase in nausea and acid reflux. I'm still playing... (more)
I know this isn't the right procedure to make the diagnosis, but today when receiving an echocardiogram my doctor thought he may have seen a hital hernia. I just had an upperendoscopy a few months ago for reoccurring mild gastritis, but was told... (more)
It seems I get a bet of nausea and acid reflux right after a drink cream on an empty stomach. I use ecological cream and I take lactrase enzymes with it so that the lactose won't be a problem. Why do I get this symptoms?
Lactose may not be the problem. Lots of people cannot tolerate casein, which is a protein found in milk. There is no pill to reduce casein, like there is for lactose. A big dose of fat on an empty stomach may cause reflux.
First off, I used the search function but could not find anything related. If anyone is aware of a similar topic, do kindly point me in the correct direction. I've always had a history of gastric attacks. You know, the usual symptoms: skip a meal... (more)
