  • I've had GERD really bad for the first time in my life beginning about 6 months ago. I went vegan 1.5 years ago though, so this is so frustrating. I do sometimes have higher fat vegan meals but I feel it the most when I eat foods that are spicy so I try to stay away from those. Sometimes it happens when I'm just eating fruit though! I wonder why I've never had this problem my whole life and it only just started after going plant based? I'm a huge believer in the power of plants, but this is the only area where they SEEM to be failing me. Am I wrong?

  • I have heard that low stomach acid was also a factor. The oesophagus sphincter closes when the stomach ph is low enough and if it doesn't get enough acid the opening doesn't close properly.
    Apparently taking betaine tablets or apple cider vinegar can fix this, any thoughts?

  • I (low fat vegan) quit smoking and started eating more crisps and cookies, gained a few pounds, and back came the heart burn, very bad. Low fat is the cure. Cheers,

  • Looking at this video again a year later, |I may add that fat also slows down transition and so food may stay longer in the stomach and have more chance to relux, again his mention of TOMATO AND CITRUS FRIUTS, noway should a person with GERD be eating these, as he says fat relaxes the LES, but so do other foods like chocolate, coffee and tea, smoking, and so why not gear the video towards eating foods that tighten the LES?
    Do you guys know how to tighten the LES?
    He does mention CKK has a LES relaxing effect, I didnt know that, meat and eggs would do that cause FAT causes the gut to trigger CKK to signal the gallbladder to squeeze out bile/sludge/cholesterol, now if one eats zero fat or no meat/eggs won't there be a problem with bile stasis, i.e. bile/sludge can become saturated within the gallbladder and cause problems such as stones, polyps etc? I suppose instead of the meat and eggs fat, I could replace with avocado and walnut, flax etc.

    I want to come off prilosec that Ive had to take for 21yrs and reduced many times and gave up do to the terrible rebound reflux that you get, Ive reduced my dose for about a month to half (10mg instead of 20mg) and getting pain in my throat and coughing a lot, I need to lose weight, my ideal weight should be around 73kg, am 107kg 🙁 dropped from 115kg 3 yrs ago though, dropped to about 100kg but in 6 months its gone up again, yoyo'ing with various diets. I jog for 20mins once a day but feel this isnt enough and need to either calorie restrict or fast which I can't cause Im taking meds, can't do a juicefast cause all that liquid just refluxes backup, thats another reason why carbs are good, carbs like pasta, bread, potatoes maybe good in that they absorb liquid and there is less sloshing around in the stomach.

    Going back to the tightening of the LES, I think calcium tightens things so maybe calciium can tighten this LES as long s you void any of the LES refluxing or weakening foods or activities, yes activities … doing resistance training or lifting produces strain nd you hold your breath and this pushes up on the LES = weakening of an already weak LES and reflux, having easy stool or bowel movement also avoids strain, etc, magnesium would relax the LES but also would relax the pyloric valve which would help move food out of the stomach so there is less to reflux, right?

  • I have been vegan for two months now. I often have a big meal, like 1500 kcal and like 2 kg weight. Sometimes i get really bad acid reflux from this, which may not be suprising. I just wonder if this is bad? Should i rather have more meals?

  • I have been suffering with reflux for the past 25 years, Doctor put me on Omeprazole 10 years ago. I found out how bad these drugs are and have been trying to come off it ever since but if you've ever been of these proton pump blockers you'll know how painful it is to try and come off them. It's unbearable after a couple of weeks so i always end up back on it. Tried almonds and ginger and cinnamon and several other ideas out there in internet land but nothing as of yet stops it. I've been vegan for 3 years so even though this may have helped with the initials symptoms having the rebound pain when trying to come of them is probably overriding any benefit. If anyone has a tried and tested solution to getting off these terrible drugs please let me know.

  • I fixed my acid reflux in one sitting: I ate a head of lettuce. I then stopped eating anything out of a box. And as long as I stayed away from any food sold in a box I was fine.
