You want to eat but then again you don’t, because “IT” will come for you. The heartburn that happens with GERD is a life interrupting annoyance that makes you want to scream, “I NEED to get rid of acid reflux!!”
Can you feel it? The heartburn, the bloating, the throbbing gut, the constant burping (sometimes accompanied by vomit—vurps), the discomfort seems to never quit. You worry about the long term effects on your body. You feel depressed because it is affecting everything in your life.
You eat antacids like candy; sometimes it helps a little but it is only treating the symptoms. You go to the doctors but they only want to prescribe drugs; an answer with its own set of problems.
Make The Burning Stop!
The burning vurp. . . you just dread it. You try to concentrate on work or listen to your child’s problem but you are distracted because of the acid reflux indigestion.
You are even concerned about having a sexual encounter because “what if . . . ?” those darn vurps come at anytime. You begin coughing and your throat is burning and the romantic mood is ruined.
Oh, My Aching Gut
Many people who suffer from GERD experience the upset stomach and that uncomfortable fullness. An aching gut ruins just about any event in life; just try to have fun and laugh when your stomach is throbbing. This is a disorder of the body that can ruin your whole life, and run it into the ditch!
How Can You Get Rid of Acid Reflux?
You can choose drugs . . . but to win my battle with GERD I wasn’t thrilled about being an experimental animal for the medical industry to try out its new guesses on. Many of those drugs are pulled from the market 2-5 years later because they caused more problems than what they were supposed to cure.
The Answer Is In Your Mouth
You know the saying, you are what you eat, right? GERD got so bad in my life that I was almost completely shut down. I finally went to a holistic doctor—maybe an acid reflux alternative treatment would work.
I was in such pain sometimes I didn’t know whether to cry or put my fist through a wall. The doc made it simple. He said that there is some evidence that GERD and Celiac Disease (intolerance to gluten, a protein found in most grains) are connected.
He explained that to get rid of acid reflux I could go on a gluten free diet for 3 weeks and see how I felt. I couldn’t imagine a life with no bread or pasta!! I fretted on the way home. That night after another episode I decided to try it.
I thought, “What could it hurt?” Maybe I wouldn’t hurt anymore! That thought motivated me greatly. I am not saying it was easy—no—that was 3 years ago and now my life is grreat! Well, as long as I stay gluten free.
If you are tired of being sick and tired, and you are very eager to get rid of acid reflux, this is just one option to consider.
