In 2005 I developed GERD out of the blue. It took the doctors over a year to diagnose me, and my symptoms were so bad, it prevented me from sleeping almost every night. I tried just about every GERD medication there was at the time, Pariet, Nexium, Pantaloc etc., some of them provided relief for a while, but I ended up having to rotate through various drugs. Out of frustration that none of these drugs were working very well, and the cost of the drugs, I ended up stopping them about a year and a half ago.
Since having removed grains & processed foods from my diet and eating VLC, 99.99% of the GERD symptoms have disappeared. If I have any symptoms, they last for a few hours and then I'm good for days or weeks. I'll have to make a conscious effort and make note of days I have a higher than normal carb intake and the onset of symptoms to see if there's causation.
