Yes: Generally, the problem is a hiatal hernia. An upper GI x-ray with barium or gastrograffin where you are put in various positions can confirm whether or not you have this condition. There are a number of solutions from raising the head of your bed to various surgical or endoscopic procedures that may help. You may still need a ppi like Prilosec or Nexium (esomeprazole) after the procedure. See your doctor. ...Read more

Good substitute for grain? As grains are inflammatory and not all that useful minus fiber. Or is a little bit of grain still good? (cereal/toast)

Good substitute for grain? As grains are inflammatory and not all that useful minus fiber. Or is a little bit of grain still good? (cereal/toast)

Good question: The grain, e.g. Rice is just starch. Mother nature surrounded the grain with a cusp that contains the vitamins to metabolize the starch. That is why whole grain bread is nutritious while white bread provides only calories. In my view, even vitamin enrichment of white bread is not sufficient to meet demand. ...Read more

I see on cereal labels that some have added "fiber", but the "fiber" names sound artificial. Is the so called "fiber" safe? Is it helpful?

I see on cereal labels that some have added "fiber", but the "fiber" names sound artificial. Is the so called "fiber" safe? Is it helpful?

Safe and helpful: The "fiber" in cereal and other foods is typically the husk around seeds like grain or psyllium. It is safe and many people find it helps to keep them regular. Note, however, that many sugary cereals like lucky charms are not advertising "whole grain" and otherwise claiming to be high in fiber. They are still loaded with sugar and not very healthy. ...Read more

Miralax (polyethylene glycol): Miralax (polyethylene glycol) or its generic equivalent, which you can find at costco, or any pharmacy, is great. I took it once, sometimes twice a day in my pregnancy and it works wonders. It's not absorbed by the body, solely works by pulling water into your colon to soften stool. Doesn't affect the baby at all and very safe to use. Also boy doesn't become dependent on it. Continue to hydrate as well! ...Read more
