Thanks Ladyhawk58, I appreciate this. GERD is terrible. I clearly remember my first fit in 1997 (or 1998 ), when I rushed to ER fearing I was having a heart attack. I also believe that too much food is one cause, and that separating foods according to food combining rules may work against it. I do hope that you find soon a way out of it - for good.Sorry Yaeli, it was just a broad statement, as I have seen quite a few people say in their posts that they have had reflux disappear very quickly after adjusting their eating to the BTD or GTD. I was not referring to what you said at all really and I certainly didn't mean to offend you. I was concentrating on what Goldie had said and was not intending to imply anything with regard to any of your comments.
It is hard sometimes to see comments from people who have had such great success with eliminating their GERD symptoms quite quickly, whereas 9 months down the track I still have it and wonder when it will go away for me. I do realise though that we are all different, so please don't think I was disbelieving of your results at all.
For this reason I now take all my supplements either with food or as is. I empty the capsules on/into the food, or into a tablespoon and sip a little water afterwards. It was quite difficult for me at the beginning and it took me a couple of months and Lola's kind support to get there. Foods to which I add supps these days (powder and liquid) are: omlette, nut butters, millet, rice, blended vegetable soup. To ease on the strong taste I sometimes add a little blackstrap molasses or add another half portion of food. I grew used to some supplements and like them enough to take them as is: Polyflora, CLA Formula, CoQ10 (liquid), Histona, even Ocubright. This way I gain a lot of peace of mind.I find it hard not to drink close to eating because some supplements (all BTD type ones) need to be taken with food so I need water to get them down. I think I'll give those ones a miss for a while.
I ordered whatever NAP advise.. it will arrive in the mail today.
My throat is sore from it .. let it go for two month at least.. but checked it out yesterday and confirmed it.
I agree I think it is from over-eating.. even though as a role I don't stuff my self.. BUT I DO STUFF my self- I am certain that I always finish my plate. I read that Gatheres are in a constant state of Hypoglicima evn after a meal.. I think this is so much more important than most anything I ever read.. IT TOTALLY confirms what I felt all my life. NO WONDER I GRAZE.. now wonder so many things.. the fear of being hungry, eating in defence of getting hungry.
SO maybe learning more about hypoglycemia might be really helpful.
Eating LESS - I have cut my portions already, but possibly cutting them in half one more time might be the right thing. LIke I think meat now only one meal at a time.. and turkey maybe add it back again for some days... using the protein powder in place of breakfast maybe.. I think its suggested for the WEIGHT loss protocol. Cutting the food in half.. is not meaning eating inadequite as that would freek me out, (I never OVER eat by portion size by other peoples standards.) but I graze more often..
In my Gatheres being I am thinking that the DIABETES is kicking up, allowing the body not to heal as fast as it once did. This is on illness that WE GATHERES with short legs shoud try to avoid every whioch way!!! more importnat than anything lese. its a misery .. not for the needles or the testing but for the damage it does..
Heads up PLease. all the little discomforts I can talk about are all related to this insideous illness that I pushed out by at least 10 years according to my doctor __ with BTD.. but IT is still in not enough. those who are gatheres really need to learn much more about this.. and its not just about not eating sugar.. its much more then that.. sorry to be lecturing... but I wish GATHERERS will learn
from my what I concider my MIS fortune that will cost me THOUSANDS in dollars of all sorts of stuff. UNAVOIDABLY.. I feel no guilt _ and I feel anger - but most of all I feel dissapointed that there is not enough PREVENTION talked about for 20 year olds.. OK enough for today.
I called Dr D's PNS (Personalized Nutrition Store) and ordered the special item for Acid reflux. I will take it for 2 month, hoping to show the MD that I can do without the Prilosec type stuff he was going to prescribe -- but which I am not accepting.
I often go to sleep for 1.5 'nap' after lunch (bored to tears) or after dinner can't stay awake..I will stop that as of today.. I will remain UPRIGHT for 3 hours after lunch and dinner meals.
but what else can I do??
will the plum vinegar help the digestion issues? should i eat a little for lunch and dinner? as a neutralizing acid medicine?
same question about elderberry juice will it help or hurt/
I drink liquids most often before eating.. or 20 minutes after.. will the elderberry juice neutralize or do what?
I have had this for a while and I told the MD that I only eat BTD, but I would just love to blow him out of the water by curing myselve during the next exactly 28 days.!!
thanks for help. goldie.
