Complete Guide to Understanding and Healing
Did you know acid reflux is by far the most widespread gastrointestinal disorder? The U.S. alone spends more than $10B on reflux medications globally. Given this, you might wonder why WebMD reports the disease has increased +50% over the last decade, The National Cancer Institute shares throat cancer, the fastest growing cancer, is +850% since 1975 and The Voice Institute finds mortality from throat cancer is +7x.
You may also wonder why mainstream medical approaches, which you might think would be the best cure for acid reflux, have not helped you address your acid reflux or GERD. The startling answer to both of these questions is thoroughly explored in this book.
All conclusions and recommendations are discussed in simple terms and backed by hundreds of hours studying medical research. Furthermore, they were successfully used by the author, who prior to applying the methods in this book, suffered acid reflux for +15 years. The book is centered on a three phase transition plan. It’s not a meal plan, exercise routine, or an appeal to give up everything you love. Instead, it lays the foundation for a quick and smooth transition off of medications / supplements and a return to normal. Before you know it, you could be back to enjoying life free of the many health, social, and emotional issues brought on by this terrible disease.
The Acid Reflux Guy's Online Courses
Let's face it, its incredibly difficult to know what you can and cant eat as it sometimes feels like everything triggers symptoms. A list of common reflux triggers is hit or miss so where do you start to determine what is safe to eat? Furthermore, how long should you expect to maintain this diet and are you even making progress?
In either event, eating the right foods, avoiding the wrong foods for a time is a key part of any recovery plan. This, as providing your body and your microbiome with the nutrients it needs is vital to restoring gut health and getting back to normal. But how do you do that if what you can and cant eat seems to be shifting on its own accord?

Additional Supplements For Long Term Acid Reflux Sufferers
As mentioned above, I first recommend you read my How I Cured My Silent Reflux article. In it, I explain the most common side effects of prolonged acid reflux medication use. Additionally, I discuss these side effects at length in my YouTube video.
I took Proton Pump Inhibitors (prilosec, nexium, omeprazole, etc…) for 15 years and as a result developed several neurological, neuromuscular issues (memory issues, brain fog, anxiety, fatigue, tingling, full list in the article…). These are caused by Vitamin B12, Calcium, and Magnesium deficiencies. These are in turn are due to inability to properly break foods down so they can be absorbed. Thankfully most all have been reversed by discontinuing the medication and my recovery accelerated, using the below vitamins:
B12 - Vitamin B12 helps support energy metabolism, nervous system health, and helps convert food to energy.
Magnesium - Magnesium is important for many systems in the body, especially the muscles and nerves.
Burning Mouth or Tongue
Be sure and ramp up your daily fiber intake to 35-50 grams daily to support the probiotics.
