One doctor said I had Barrett's Esophagus. Another said pre-cancer GURD. I suffered for 6 years. No medication helped me. I tried them all. The last doctor said it was autoimmune Acid Esophagus. They all had a name for it but not one could help me. When I started Mono eating the pain & acid ended without toxic medications filled with side effects that made my autoimmunity even worse. Oh by the by, the drugs were $108.00 a month! Do any of you suffer from acid reflux? Mono eating at each meal is the only way my esophagus could heal. Thank you 80/10/10
Roxanne I am happy for you. The big Pharma's acid drugs are made to keep people on cooked food. It's an evil plan.
Hey there. I wondered do you still juice a lot? Read that you did once. I am raw new on raw (:D) but I think juices does more pain to your stomach than fruits. I've had reflux now and then for like 5-6 last yrs, but I'm lfrv for almost a week now and I felt like mixing fruits and adding juices isn't so good for me. If I don't do that, I feel perfect! And lots of water - maybe you're dehydrated so your colon holds on food causing your gaster not to empty itself and produce more acid? Try eating mono whole fruit meals and drink loooots of water ;) I wish you the best :)
I am struggling with horrible acid reflux. I am so scared about this because my beloved father died of esophageal cancer in December 2010. My throat is so swollen and sore and my stomach burns at night after dinner. Prior to doing 80 10 10, which I started doing 100% in the last 1-2 weeks, my acid reflux was not a problem. However, after starting 80 10 10 my acid reflux has been out of control. I have not been mono mealing which may be a big part of the problem, but I am also wondering if there are certain fruits/vegetables I should avoid?
Should I avoid any of the following fruits/vegetables?...
-Raw Sweet Corn
Are the above foods okay or not okay to eat if one has bad acid reflux? Are they okay if eaten in mono form?
Are there any other fruits/vegetables I should avoid besides the nightshades?
Should I avoid tomatoes and nightshade foods forever or just until my acid reflux calms down?
Those of you that have healed acid reflux from 80 10 10 do you only eat one type of fruit at meal or do you find your acid reflux is fine if you combine properly, like for example eating a meal of bananas & dates or strawberries & blueberries?
If someone could please please advise me I would so greatly appreciate it! I really need help as I am so worried about my acid reflux and in a lot of pain!
First of all, I'm very sorry to hear about your father. I sincerely hope you and your family have been well.
Secondly, I too used to have terrible acid reflux when I was following a primarily fruit-based diet. Switching over back to a whole lot of greens (still including fruits of course), has helped me tremendously. I avoid nightshade and citrus fruit, although I now use some citrus in my smoothies to ensure proper iron absorption from the leafy greens. I'd suggest an elimination diet approach to all other fruits and veggies to see if anything else is causing the acid reflux. Everyone is different, so you have to test the lack of and re-introduction of foods into your diet.
Let me know how it goes! It can take up around six weeks, so keep us posted. If you need more help, check out my site for coaching www.rawknheels.com.
(Note: sorry to FL and DR if this is considered selling myself or anything, just trying to help the woman).
Thank you for your condolences for my father. So since you eat more greens than fruits are you still raw or do you cook your greens. Did you find that mono meals helped you or do you eat a variety of fruits in a meal? Do you find that any specific fruits or veggies help heal your acid reflux? Do you find there are other fruits besides citrus and nightshades that aggravate your acid reflux? Thank you for your help!
Yes, I am a Raw Vegan & Wellness Coach and Culinary Instructor, so I'm definitely raw! Otherwise I wouldn't be here! Totally support raw foods and have seen it work wonders.
Mono meals are excellent if you want to have a fruit only meal.
Like I said before, take out nightshades and citrus fruit, and then experiment with other fruits and veggies by using the elimination approach. Each person is a little different - we all have different sensitivities. Leafy greens is the ultimate way to go as they are highly alkaline and contain chlorophyll. :)
I had daily heartburn, and severe tummy issues, and as long as I am raw and paying attention to food combinations I have zero problems now. My husband also was eating anti acids like candy and his issues are completely gone too. We've been more committed the last six weeks or so and feel great. I'm so glad that you're feeling better!!!!!!!!!!
I guarantee you that the esophagus is able to heal and reverse damage. Your medical doctor probably told you that that is impossible. I am here to tell you that my esophagus was extremely damaged. When I changed to this lifestyle after one year my esophagus is completely healed and normal. I had an Endo scopic test done. the doctor was amazed at my healing. I wish you the best of luck my friend. You are going to feel better than you ever have.
