Thank you! I have also dealt with fighting depression over this condition in addition to trying to manage the condition itself. Norm’s book has given me some hope and it makes more and more sense the more I read it. I’ve believed for a long time that conventional ideas about reflux are solely lacking. After 3 days of imperfectly following the diet my bloating has diminished and my throat is swollen but not as sore. I was using betaine and enzymes successfully a few years ago but for some reason it stopped working but am going to try again with small doses at first. I’m seeing my GI this week and I know he’s going to push surgery but I am like you…The side effects don’t sound very appealing. I wonder if he knows about this new procedure? Thanks again!
