omg, ST! can't believe you could be on the drugs for 7 yrs and still be taken for a liar when your bones fail >:|
here is my GERD story in brief - still a problem with the LES, but from too much magnesium (relaxation=poor seal) as opposed to too little (spasticity=poor seal)regimens-f22/topic2489-210.html#p153097
I remember reading about meds for acid reflux and thinking no, you NEED that acid to get the nutrients properly. so I didn't take them. thank goodness. much better to have figured out WHY the sphincter was dysfunctional.
we were recently discussing zinc absorption in the context of low stomach acid and I notice omeprazole came into the conversation then too, although it wasn't the main focus. still interesting:general-discussion-f1/topic22149-15.html#p208888
zinc's a whole other issue we have yet to get into, cindy
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
