So I'm doing a ZC diet for a week (thanks so much to Melissa HGL for her advice!) and a bunch of problems have resolved. This is my second day on the day as I screwed up Monday and Tuesday. Yesterday, was perfect. No GERD issues whatsoever.
Here's the problem:
I upped my fat intake considerably, and for lunch had two lamb shanks (or maybe they were legs) braised in beef broth. Reflux. I'm wondering though if my probiotics http://www.renewlife.com/ultimate-flora-critical-care-50-billion.html
Or Digestive enzymes http://www.enzymedica.com/products/Digest_Gold
Or my HCLhttp://pureformulas.com/betaine-hcl-180-caps-by-pharmax.html
Could it have been too much fat? Too much cellulose (which Melissa pointed out is a FODMAP)?
Also, could stress be a factor (Mom in the hospital, friend's father passed away)?
No more bowel troubles by the way on ZC--I had also asked a similar question, and two people kindly answered it, but one said to up the HCL which I'm not sure is a good idea, and the other said he never had upper GI problems
