GERD advice

Posted , 3 users are following.

hi all,

ive been having problems for around 9 months now. i did have gallstones and had my gallbladder removed in march this year.

im suffering quite badly with what i think are gerd symptoms. belching, sickness, pains in throat.

the one which worries me the most is the raise in my heart rate. before all of this it was a normal 60ish. now when i feel unwell it sits around 78-100.

does anyone else have these issues ? if so what helps???

    Hi Karen: Surgery of any kind is very traumatic to the body. It can upset balances in intestinal bacteria and electrolytes, vitamins and minerals. I would suggest a focus on high nutrition to help your body to heal. You will need a high speed blender.

    Every day make a vegetable and fruit smoothie. Include fresh spinach, kale, carrots, some berries, filtered water. Blend on high. Then add a few scoops of protein powder on low speed.. Then pour some in a large glass and add 6 tablespoons of organic probiotic yogurt, stir with a spoon. You may need to add some more water to make it smooth. Drink a large glass 4 times a day, a small glass before bed.

    When you have a meal, include a salad and if you can include some baked chicken or mild fish. White tuna is okay. Take a high quality enzyme with each meal. Then as you can tolerate, add vitamin D, E, A, a multi mineral capsule, a multi B vitamin.

    This may sound like a lot of work, but it is worth it. Start out slow and work up to add each item one at a time.

    Since you had your gallbladder removed you may need to add more and more enzymes with each meal until you find the amount your body needs. John
