    Nerves Shot Because of Emotional Stress

    I'm currently under emotional stress from three directions: my demented brother, my estranged wife, and my inability to make headway in my work. Three weeks ago, I became bloated and gassy, acid rising to my throat during sleep. The gastroenterologist recommended an endoscopy but I declined...

    Small burps/belches even on an empty stomach fasted, especially if I drink water? they get stuck in my throat/stomach

    Does anyone have any idea why this could be happening? It seemingly spontaneously started happening when I was going pretty heavy on High vitamin K doses and also on high histamine foods (bone broth, gelatin, kefir, dark chocolate) but I have since stopped eating gelatin, bone broth, dark...

    Due to necessity, I had to figure out what in the world is causing the SIBO, GERD and LPR epidemic happening here on this very forum and around the world. So I started digging and putting pieces of the puzzle together. And what started to become very clear was the gut issues were related to the...

    Testimonial For Niacin - It Just Works

    Per the title, this is just my personal successful experience with using niacin that I wanted to share. Usually I don't care to make posts like this, but seeing as there are just too many members here running around aimlessly playing with foods, food timings, avoiding nutritious foods like...

    SIBO, GERD, LPR, IBS, & Colitis Could Be Vitamin B3 Deficiency - "Niacin Treats Digestive Problems"

    "Many digestive problems such as bloating, abdominal distention or pain, heartburn and belching are caused by a lack of stomach acid (hypochlorhydria) which can be traced to a lack of niacin. An adequate output of stomach acid is required in order to prevent fungal and bacterial overgrowth in...

    GERD Drugs (PPI) Cause Esophageal Cancer - The Very Disease They Should Prevent

    Forum users who follow my posts have probably noticed the number of threads I have posted exposing the fraud and ineffectiveness of the PPI drugs commonly prescribed for GERD. Another user who likely shares my passion against the PPI is @aguilaroja who will likely find the study sadly...

    PPI Drugs May Cause Gastric (stomach) Cancer

    Forum users who follow my posts have probably noticed the ongoing exchanges user @aguilaroja and I have had over the years in regards to the so-called PPI drugs used to treat GERD. My first negative impression about these drugs came almost 15 years ago when I was first getting started in the...

    Acid Reflux (GERD) Drugs (PPI) Increase Risk Of Early Death

    I posted a few studies in the past in regard to the PPI class fo drugs causing kidney failure, stroke, steroid synthesis inhibition and even cancer. Now this study links these drugs to an increased risk of premature death. Keeping in mind the PPI class of drugs are probably the most widely...

    Aspirin (but Not Other NSAID) Treats Barrett’s Esophagus And Possibly GERD

    The good news for aspirin just keep on coming. I posted a few studied in the past about GERD and its progressions Barrett’s esophagus, and esophageal cancer being caused by inflammation and not stomach acid. As such, PPI drugs are probably useless for treating and preventing GERD (since they...

    Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI) Increase All-cause Mortality And Heart Failure

    I posted a few studies before on the terrible side effects of PPI drugs. These drugs are perhaps the most prescribed class of drugs in the Western world for conditions like GERD, ulcers, or even to prepare for routine surgery. Recently, these drugs were approved even for use in newborns...

    Glycine Can Completely Prevent Esophagus Damage Caused By GERD

    As discussed in another thread by forum member @denise, using PPI drugs is really to no benefit for preventing inflammation of the esophagus and subsequent development of Barret's or even cancer. The GERD damage is based on an inflammatory reaction, as I mentioned in another post. As such, it...

    PPI Drugs (anti GERD) Powerfully Inhibit Steroidogenesis

    I have always been suspicious of PPI drugs. There are many reasons for it, including the falsified clinical trial data to conceal increased risk of gastric cancer, the idiotic premise that gastric acid increases with age, the kidney failure side effects, and the calcium/magnesium depletion being...

    GERD (acid Reflux) Is Caused By Inflammation, Not Stomach Acid

    I have always been suspicious of the massive GERD drug market and the fact that despite them being the most prescribed drugs in the USA, the incidence of esophageal cancer (which they were designed to prevent) has been rising with scary speed. The raw data from the clinical trials on PPI drugs...

    Anti-acid (PPI) Drugs Commonly Used For GERD Lead To Kidney Failure

    I have long suspected that PPI drugs are very dangerous based on my observations of friends having bone problems and fractures typically seen in people 30-40 years older. The PPI drugs affect calcium and magnesium metabolism in ways that are just beginning to be elucidated and prescribing them...

    Anti-acid Drugs (ppi) May Cause Dementia

    The so-called Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI) are second generation anti-acid drugs that replaced the much safer first generation H2 antagonists like fomotidine, ranitidine, cimetidine, etc. The PPIs are really bad drugs that should have never been approved considering that they provably cause...

    GERD Drugs (PPI) Linked To Heart Attacks

    Notably, the older drugs form the class of H2 antagonists were not tied to heart risks. Some of those antihistamines have very beneficial effects unrelated to GERD. The PPI drugs powerfully deplete magnesium and calcium, and raise prolactin. So, the link to heart attacks is not surprising...
