I've had GERD for 2 years now. After the first outbreak of it I took the acid inhibitors. All of the sudden it has resurfaced with a vengeance for no appearant reason. Besides stress, alcohol, spicey food, caffeine, what would make it flair up?

Dear Karen,

Of course, that is what causes nearly every case of GERD.
Were I you, I would just do what my homepage (link on this page) says & when the symptoms are gone, let me know on the bulletin board so I can answer any questions you might have.

If you want to understand more about WHY you have this problem (strongly recommended so you don't just get it again) you really need to read my new book (see link below).

Re: ABDOMINAL PAIN - many many tests----doctors stumped ?

I suffer from a similar pain--digestive related--but it will range from being a burning sensation to being a tightening. And its location varies from the left nipple area to my left groin. It's quite excruciating and no matter your age or the number of tests done, you keep thinking, "Angina!"

If I sit in one place for more than two hours without getting up, it becomes agony. God knows why. Naturally, this makes my life as a grad student a lot less liveable than it should be.

My current gastroenterologist is calling it a colon or stomach spasm. Other doctors in the five-year-history of the ailment have called it reflux, fibromyalgia, gallbladder "not working," and panic disorder.

Dr. Stoll has a remedy for upper GI conditions, drink a teaspoon of the juice of ginger roots every morning. But it must be from an expensive juicer--not one of those Juicemans. I've tried juice bars around here, but they won't let me juice ginger, afraid it will ruin the taste of other things later. So I'm up a creek on this. After two weeks of drinking ginger juice from the wrong juicer, I've given up.

But you might want to try it.

I think I'll probably be going on Librax for a while.

Dear Rob,

You have leaky gut syndrome with the added complication of parasitosis (probably including candida-related syndrome). NONE of this would show up on any of the tests you have had done.

If you have a copy of my book, you should read it with your own condition in mind.

You need some LGS & parasite tests done. When you are ready, let me know so I can direst you to a competent lab. Nearly ALL local labs are INCOMPETENT to do these tests.

Dear Jeff,

Even if your Librax works, we all know that it will only be temporary. You are just cutting the wires to the doorbell. What if your neighbor is trying to warn you that your house is on fire?

You really need to read a copy of my book so you can begin to understand what is behind this. THEN, if you want more specific stuff about your exact symptoms, read a copy of Dr Pelletier's book "Mind as Healer, Mind as Slayer". I suggest mine first because it is a lot simpler--designed to help people like you see things in a different light.

You already know that the conventional paradigm is not going to resolve this for you. You are going to have to become the expert in your own condition or you will increasingly be dependent upon the conventional medical system.

I have had this condition for at least 10 years and have found relief by avoiding the foods that trigger this condition such as nitrates (which now also give me headaches) and fruits (especially the peelings). You may have entirely different trigger foods or chemicals. Taking replacement hormones first brought on this syndrome for me, but also stress. Elly

Dear Elly,

I appreciate your testimonial & couldn't agree with you more.

I would, however, add some things: since anything from the environment CAN trigger these (and many other) symptoms, what is it about you that makes this be a problem for you & not for so many others?

This is a question that I hope you will address before your symptoms come back even though you are avoiding those triggers you already know about. If nothing is done about your susceptibility there will, inevitably, be new ones to take their place.

The background for your situation is such a great example of the superiority of looking at chronic problems like this from a holistic perspective that I have dedicated several chapters to it in my new book (link below).

Re: Leaky Gut Syndrome

I just heard of this syndrome. I've been telling my doctor for 1 1/2 yrs that something was wrong with my abdomen. I think I overdosed on Alleve for back pain, which triggered it. Now I have psoriasis on my fingers and scalp, anxiety and nearly constant, sometimes sharp abdominal pains. They have not diagnosed ANYTHING. In fact told me that it was gas and stress. Somebody help me figure if this is my problem. I'm tired of the pain.
