When I eat fats and sugar, my heart beats rapidly and I get chest pains, what should I eat to cleanse my colon and prevent this?

Cn eating fast and being anxious whilst eating cause GERD in young adult if been doing for 3 years? Get chest pain/stomach pain bending over after eat

Yes, although it: Might not be GERD, just burping (get an MD to look at this). Sounds like anxiety rules your eating habits, so deal with the anxiety.
