GERD treatment
James,Here is a new take that appears to have a very high success rate in curing GERD....a near total cure almost 100% of the time.Are they wrong?....where are they right and where are they wrong.Thanks.

RE: GERD treatment
I read the article again and noticed that the whole theory comes from this guy called Norm Robillard, a microbiologist.

This guy believes that it's all about SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) due to carbohydrates malabsorption.

It makes perfect sense to me but I don't know if that applies to everyone.

I hope James has some time to make some comments about this theory.

RE: GERD treatment
Could it also be fructose malabsorption causing GERD?

Fructose malabsorption....I agree with the theory...it fits my experience as does the carb fermentation theory....I have to totally avoid fructose,and most all sugars.

I have to limit beans and nuts due to their sugar content as well as bread and all flour....even many high sugar vegetables give me trouble.

That leaves me with greens and potatoes and small amounts of beans and nuts.I could go the high fat low carb route but thats not heart healthy.At any rate I have found a solution in a diet high in greens and potatoes....but I don't like the limitations.

Fermentation does play a role in many cases of GERD, but the fermentation occurs in the stomach, not the intestines:

http://medcapsules.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=2632

The biggest problem I have with the hypothesis presented is that the fermentation of the carbs would occur primarily in the colon region. Therefore, the gas would somehow have to work its way back up the intestine against the chyme still being digested and the peristalsis. In addition, even if it were able to do this the gas would still have to get past the pyloric sphincter, which in the process would also be pushing bile and antacid sodium bicarbonate from the intestine back up in to the stomach. The sodium bicarbonate would neutralize the stomach acid. Then, even if the gas did manage to work its way all the way back up the intestine and past the pyloric sphincter then the gas would still have to get past the lower esophageal sphincter as well. That is a lot of improbable ifs and therefore is extremely unlikely.

RE: GERD treatment
But then how do you explain the very high success rate that is based on the theory.It does work because I have tried it myself.I limit all sugar and even whole grains such as brown rice and even beans.But quick digesting foods like potatoes don't cause GERD.

If I ever over do my eating and GERD starts up I can cure it by eating a diet of all potatoes.Anyone who doubts this I challenge you to give it a try next time GERD starts up.Please post after you try it.

RE: GERD treatment
What I have tried was to increase stomach acid following James' advice and it worked.

I can eat any mixture of food I want with no problem.

I only have a little heartburn (GERD) when I get stressed. I learned to deal with that also and it's been great.
