30 Bananas a Day!

I went to an ENT (Ear Nose and throat Doctor) today becasue I wanted to check out why I had a typle of swollen gland on the left side of my throat for the past 7 months. I made the appointment to ease a fear I have had about it being a cist or something on my thyroid(as it was a similar symptom that my friend had and he was diagnosed with a cyst on his thyroid.)
So, as I am telling the ent doc about my symptoms he cuts me short and said "Oh, you have Acid Reflux, I am giving you a script and some samples to get you started on some pills that will take it away" Naturally I asked what caused this acid reflux....he said with conviction" Fruits and Vegetables" Oh boy, am I in for a lifetime of some scid reflux..b/c I didn't get the script filled..but I did take the samples home....what? they were free! lol

Can any doctors on this site offer some great advice..if you are not a doc..feel free to add a comments too!

Hi Victoria,

Definitely get a second opinion! There's NO WAY acid reflux can be caused by fruits and vegetables.

Everyone I knew who suffered from it got it from eating a high fat, high animal protein diet.

I hope you feel better soon!


well, in all honesty, i had not been 100% raw for the past few months and the longest I had gone was for 2 months. But this is really a wake up call for me to finally take notice and treat my body with the nurturing it deserves once and for all! Acid reflus may be masking some other weird things in my lymphatic system that needs to be addressed by healing, not masking it with a drug. So I am staying on course now!
I had a diagnosed Acid reflux before, I used to take omeprazol occasionally. But now while only on fruits and veggies, I could never have it again. Cooked food, onion, garlic, unripe tomato might cause it.
they lymph nodes could be an infection in your mouth, or throat.
Don't let them make you have endoscopy or take drugs, say no
