I'd suffered really bad reflux with the associated problems, heartburn, palpitations, breathing, sore throat, bad taste in mouth, bloated feeling, weakness and generally feeling awful. When I found this site it was good to know all these things were linked to reflux. Like everyone else I assumed it was something dreadful. I stumbled across a cure for me when I needed to have a blood test done and as I'm a full time carer for my husband didn't want to go for another round of the 4hr glucose test at the hospital for pre diabetes, so I decided to stop all carbs, ie bread, potatoes, sugar, processed foods for a month before getting the blood test done. I'm so glad I did, all the reflux problems started to go away. The Palpitations, which were particularly worrying, affected me all of the time, heart thumping, jumping, missing a beat, I'd put down to stress. All of the problems gradually disappeared, I stuck rigidly to it for 3 months, my blood test for pre diabetes was normal
and at last I was feeling better, no heartburn after every meal, or feeling weak and faint, sore throat and bad taste went, and no palpitations. I felt as if I was in control again.
?Christmas arrived, along with the carbs and sugar, the eating resumed back to as it was before, bread, potatoes, processed sugary foods. Back came all the problems. Heartburn first of all, then gradually all the other symptoms, in just over a few days.
?Tomorrow I'm back to no carbs or sugar, it's proved to me what the cause is, for me, and it's just not worth feeling so bad for a slice of toast or piece of cake. The bonus was losing a stone very easily without trying. Have a healthy New Year everyone.
