'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

I now have no GERD symptoms and off all medications for 4 weeks

6 week update! 🙂
GERD you're a loser ✔️
Symptoms: Over one year with chest pains from GERD and reflux.
Medication 300mg ranitadine twice per day.
How I started a war against GERD!
The first thing I did was go back to healthy eating cutting out saturated fats and sugar (as low as you can find on the food label)
I also started making all my meals from scratch using fresh produce. (This is really important)
The next thing I went onto was probiotics, this is the saving grace and the big enemy of GERD. By adding healthy bacteria to my gut my digestive system started to balance itself again. (Modern processing of foods strips all the good bacteria from our gut) no wonder we're all suffering, we're being slowly killed off at the supermarket.
So healthy eating and probiotics is the way forward. But you must give it time to work and don't give in!
I now have no GERD symptoms and off all medications for 4 weeks. ✔️
The probiotics I used is in the comments 🙂

Donna Batty
I've started having kefir too

Kenny McVey
Donna Batty healthy eating plan?

Marc-André Meloche
Donna Batty you can make kefir at home very easily , u need the kefir grains , or u can also do kombucha , JUN , saurkraut , kefir itself is a very potent , full spectrum probiotics so , for cheap u can do it yourself and save on probio pills that are $$$$

Nikkie Grimshaw
Donna Batty I’ve been drinking Kefir too, although at first it made my reflux worse. Do you make your own?
Now I make my own and separate the curds and whey and just add the curds to a smoothie. It’s amazing stuff!

Donna Batty
Yes clean eating all AWD food, sticking to it 100%

Audrey Healy Gallagher
Nikki are you drinking milk kefir or water kefir. I thought dairy wasn't good for this condition. I am quite new to this

Kenny McVey
Brilliant Donna Batty
Audrey Healy Gallagher I would stick to things that are working for others. It's all process of elimination of what works and what doesn't for you personally.

Donna Batty
Nikkie Grimshaw no I'm. Not that good lol bought kefir from sainsburys x

Nikkie Grimshaw
Audrey Healy Gallagher hi Audrey. I do you milk because it doesn’t seem to be a trigger for me. X

Nancy Wilson

Lorraine Urwin
I have started these as well (Only yesterday) as I have terrible upper abdominal pain, reflux and chest pains too. Digestion is all to pot🙈I keep thinking gallbladder but they say just reflux

Lorraine Urwin
How long do you take these for? Is it forever?

Raven M Black
When you had chest pains ...did you have them in the middle of right or left ?

Kenny McVey
Raven M Black middle to left (constantly) and also what I thought was heart palpitations were esophagus spasms.

Mélanie Fontaine
Thank you for sharing! I cut out all sugar, fat, processed food, coffee, tea and I am eating several meals a day instead of 3 big ones. I added fruits to snacks and veggies to every meal. I started probiotics this morning. This gives me hope, thank you so much!

Kenny McVey
Best of luck 🙂👍

Linda Meador Stewart McGinnis
I drink decaf coffee and tea and don’t seem to have a problem with those

Mélanie Fontaine
I've had so much pain that I cut out everything that might do something. So, eventually I will reitroduce some things like coffee :-) I drink herbal tea (ginger). It helps.

Amy's Page
When you had the chest pain did it feel like it was coming from your heart ? Or is that just mine ? X

Kenny McVey
Yes that's what I thought at first.

Kenny McVey
Oh and it freaks you right out!

Amy's Page
I get really sharp stings but sometimes it’s like an hour after I’ve eaten then my heart does race because I’m scared I’ve got ranitadine tablets to try
Good to hear things are working out for you there’s hope for me yet ...I hope x

Kenny McVey
Ranitadine are good at keeping everything at bay. 150mg minimum twice a day. Better than nexium and the likes with little side effects.

Kath OGrady Reilly
Very cool.
I'd like to hear more about the probiotics

Kenny McVey
Kath OGrady Reilly I don't think it's a case of hearing more about them.if you have GERD give them a shot along with a healthy eating plan. #proactive

Barbara Hanna
What probiotics do you take. I take VSL #3 that is refrigerated and do is Acidophilus. When I needed an antibiotic I added Align.

Amy Elder Souza
I been feeling sick drinking my coffee in the morning now. Afraid of withdrawls. I use creamer too so not sure why it just started

Ellen Sullivan Gaskill
I drink either Dandy Blend or Teeccino which are both chicory, dandelion blends that taste like coffee and help to kick the caffeine withdrawals, they are acid free. I have more energy now and can drink several cups a day! I also use a coconut/ almond milk blend creamer.

Pesh Mash
Fasting also helps if u do a fast for 3 days Esther fast it helped me a lot the acid in my stomach decreased so the ther was no acid to shoot up to my chest area and throat

Ellen Sullivan Gaskill
I take prebiotics , they are like fertilizer for the probiotics.

Mandy Goodge
I have a terrible time with all the symptoms mentioned above.I'be tried probiotics,but give up after a week or two.Does it take a while for them to help?I just don't want to be on ppi's for the rest of my life!Does apple cider vinegar help?haven't tried it,but was reading about it on line.


Jenny Harris
I started on Apple Cider Vinegar 2 days ago not sure if it’s helping or not yet ?!
I’ve massively changed my diet and cut all known triggers for last week or so ..... I think I am slowly starting to feel better 🤞🏻

Mandy Goodge
Jenny Harris How often are you taking it?

Jenny Harris
Every morning on an empty stomach one tablespoon with water and a little honey to help the taste
I am going to try for a full week before trying anything else xx

Kenny McVey
The probiotics take a bit of time to balance out the bad and good bacteria..You must also be on a clean healthy diet. ACG and honey tried the lot with no effect. Probiotics and a healthy diet is the solution. If your slightly overweight this is also a factor. I'm down to a healthy 75kg and really feeling great.

Dominique Mimnagh Kenny McVey did u try Manuka honey? High mgo factor?

Kenny McVey
Dominique Mimnagh tried that 24+ pure manuka and it never worked as a solution.

Dominique Mimnagh
Kenny McVey I think it’s working for me but it’s only been few days! If it is working it might be because I have H pylori? I did test neg for it but gastro doc said you can get false biopsies! Having another endoscopy on 7th May. I should’ve started Manuka afterwards really but too impatient and just wanted some relief.

Jackie VanGorden
Dominique Mimnagh what is the Manuka honey thing?

Dominique Mimnagh
Hey good on yer. So glad ur winning. This disease sucks!!!! Did u find the probiotic made things worse to begin with? I’m just taking Yakult because I find the tablets too much. I’m interested in the Vsl 3 though I’ve noticed it a lot on different forums. Must be good. Thanks for giving us all hope! Can you eat everything now, like garlic and onions and citrus? Thxs Dominique
