  1. Make sure not to eat white rice. Go with brown. Its easier on the stomach because it contains fiber. Also look for sprouted rice. You wont find it in many stores, and unfortunately not at all in Walmart. Truroots is a good brand...
  2. it isn't always so simple. Try reducing your diet back to the basics and really see from there what upsets your stomach and what doesnt. For example, starting tomorrow just eat meat. Plain meat. Hamburger, no ketchup, no seasoning...
  3. BioK+. Rice or Soy is best for starting out. The dairy version has a strange consistency that might turn off a newbie in my experience.
  4. I'm your age and had similar symptoms at diagnosis many years ago. My advice is hold off on the medication. Optimize your diet while you are not on any medication that might also alter how your brain feels. You won't know what that...
  5. I seriously doubt there is any gluten at all in Prevacid. I am very sensitive and have been taking it for awhile, no problems. Also--regarding the comment about having a prescription refilled--Prevacid is not in fact a prescription medication...

    Saw The Nutritionist

    This sounds like really good advice. All would be better off to stick to diet like this for life. Processed foods don't do anything to improve health.

    Opera Singer, Struggling W/ Acid Reflux

    Keep taking the medicines your doctor prescribes. Don't worry about probiotics until you have the blandest diet in town down pat.
  13. Sorry you are currently having a gluten attack. I liked your advice to Treesonthemountain.

    Opera Singer, Struggling W/ Acid Reflux

    1. I'm going to say that initially you should go cold turkey, no extras, no spices, no oils, no vinegars. If you are worried about things being more palatable, believe me, once you limit your diet to the basics you will be hungry and a...

    Opera Singer, Struggling W/ Acid Reflux

    The only way to really get at the heart of problem of reflux is to cut out all processed foods. You should be eating meat/fish, fruits, vegetables, and pure non gluten grains like rice, but not commercial instant rice because you can...
