Asthma and GERD – What’s going on?For some time a connection between asthma and heartburn has been recognized but the reason for the connection has remained a mystery. As many as 80 percent of asthmatics suffer from abnormal gastroesophageal reflux compared to about 20 – 30 percent of non asthmatics. Some asthmatics have GERD with classic symptoms while others shown to have GERD by pH monitoring don’t have classic symptoms and are considered to have “silent GERD”. A better understanding of the underlying cause of GERD may shed more light on the connection between this condition and asthma. Here is a place to discuss the connection. Also check out the article on GERD and Asthma on this site.

Rosacea, SIBO and DietThere are exciting things happening in treating Rosacea. In this paper scientists found that the prevalence of small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) was significantly higher in people that had rosacea compared to controls. Further, eradication of SIBO with the antibiotic refaximin "induced an almost complete regression of patients cutaneous lesions and maintained this excellent result for at least 9 months." If you have read my article: Are antibiotics safe for irritable bowel syndrome?, you know that I believe that you can accomplish the same thing (eradication of SIBO) with the Fast Tract Diet for lasting results without the damage to your gut microbiome that comes with antibiotics.Here is a place to have a discussion on this amazing development. What have your experiences been with rosacea, SIBO and treatment?
