Acid Relux/Hernia

Reboot Newbies

Posted by Tactical on 3 years ago

I am 31 years old - I have had acid reflux issues for about 12 years now. My once only esophagus has turned into barrits esophagus, cists, ulcers, hiatus hernia, damage to the liver and chronic gastritis. Although I have many symptoms of chrones/colitis the doctors cannot figure out what is causing all of this damage. I have done many diets and usually ate fairly clean. For about the last year or so my diet has been disgusting due to me giving up. I'm on some pretty heavy medications. I am a Police Officer and these issues are starting to affect my work and home life - I just want to get back to normal! I am hopeful that this reboot will help me but am brand new to juicing and want to make sure I do it correctly. I'm aiming for 30 days and am currently at the end of day 2. The cabbage juices seem to be really helping with any bowel issues I've been having so far but I'm still getting migraines and severe acid reflux. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I really have no idea what I'm doing. :)

    I also would love to know how much juice I should be consuming on a daily basis and if there are certain fruits/veggies that I need more/less of than others for proper nutritional intake per day. Thanks again! :)

    I'm sorry I just have to chime in here.

    First, I am not a doctor and don't pretend to be one. That being said I do have strong views on the medical profession. I had a tumor removed from my brain back in 2011 so I believe that doctors truly have there place, but they don't call it a medical practice for nothing. Since going vegan after the surgery I have been clean of any tumors. I have come to appreciate that a plant-based diet is the way to go. I have never done a juice cleanse before but my wife and I are on day 3 of a reboot.

    When I read your post it was almost scarry since I have had acid reflux for years although not as bad as yours it sounds. I suffer from migraines to the point that the medical profession is running out of ideas to try on me so I am looking forward to this reboot as a help if not cure for both those issues.

    On the Acid Reflux side of things, I was on Nexium for a long time. After consulting with a bio-chemist that told me that it aided in removing magnesium which aids in muscle tone. It stops the production of stomach acid(which your body needs to break down the food that you eat), but the side affect is that it weakens the Hiatus (flap muscle) that herniates and you have a free flow of stomach acid to your esophagus and the resulting acid reflux becomes apparent.

    I would take it real easy on any heavy citrus juicing since that would(and does for me) agrevate the problem. I am on the reboot plan and have successfully downed the lemon that is called for each morning, but if you can't take that it may need to be avoided.

    Please keep posting as I am very interested in this post!

    Oh, I forgot to mention that this site has a lot of juice recipes for migraines. I tried beets yesterday and my migraine was relieved in about 20 minutes. Try different stuff!

    I have also recently been told that they believe I have a malignant (cancerous) tumour on my brain as well but they informed me that "it's not a clinical issue at this point in time". I really am usually very fit and active but the past two years have been brutal! I'm just as excited as you are to see the results of this reboot! Lol

    Good luck to you and keep me posted on yours as well! :)

    I know that dealing with a tumor can be traumatic. Please make sure that you are cutting any processed sugars out of your diet. Anything that is not from a fruit or veggie. Even the juice that says that it is 100% from fruit (ie - cups of fruit, etc.) can be devastating to your system. The cancer tumor will feed off that processed sugar!

    After my surgery I found out that a small percentage was left in and taking all processed sugar out of my diet, and going vegan, allowed my body to eat up the rest of the tumor (so my bio-chemist said). All gone with NO chemo!

    Thought you would want to know that because you can live with your tumor and quite possibly get rid of it without chemo. It is always wise to check out all alternatives.

    That's awesome! I'm happy for you. Ya, I'm doing strictly juice/water for 30 days. I know that I'll have to severely change my diet after the cleanse as well. Day four today! I've only cheated once so far (handful of peanuts and one pickle). I'm starting to actually enjoy the juices a lot more though so hopefully I won't cheat again. Still having some reflux and only had two bowel movements since I started - one solid (first one) and one liquid (second one). I'm hoping that that is just a repercussion of the "detox" faze. It's like a roller coaster but right now I feel pretty great! :)
