Having suffered from what seems to be HH since Christmas, when I abused my ER4YT diet (A) for a couple of weeks, I have been intrigued by some of the advice on the board. I have started on the ginger juice protocol.

Questions: You link GERD/HH to poor stress handling or stored stress as well. I don't get heartburn so much as a big pressure under the sternum and sometimes pain radiating through chest and into upper arms sometimes. It definitely seems linked to eating wrong foods and alcohol/coffee consumption and always seems worse when stressed, i.e. Monday morning back to work. I am, to use the word found frequently here, a 'bracer.'

Is this really GERD do you think? And since you mention skilled relation (SR) as the foundation of treatment where does one find the protocol for it? I have waded through tons of messages and they all seem to refer to SR as a known quantity but I can't seem to find anything that would walk me through what exactly what it is .

P>S>I have read Mind as Healer and truer words were never written. What an eye opener! Excuse me if I am working familiar ground; because I am new to this list I might be overlooking the obvious.

Thanks for the time..

Hi, B.H.

Go to the homepage for this 'site and read the article about SR.

There is a specific section in my book about it along with all the references you might want.

Your symptoms are likely GERD, from what you have said. However, these symptoms are also identical to angina and can be associated with exercise OR eating. You really should get checked out with a Stress EKG. If THAT is OK, it is likely safe for you to proceed as though this were GERD.

By the way, the only program yet found to reverse atherosclerotic heart disease (the major cause of coronaries as heralded by angina) is the wellness program described on the homepage--in association with a 10% fat diet (Pritikin or Ornish).

Congratulations for wading through MAH, MAS. I wish I could get everyone to do so.
