Butter, cream, ayurvedic remedy of a mix of ghee + ginger powder + some brown sugar. The fat off free range lamb chops cooked in coconut oil. (Avoid any nuts for a while while the intestines heal as they are scratchy). Vitamin E. Raw wheatgerm (oats and raw wheatgerm provide natural vitamin E). Note: Gluten is not the "Route" cause. Ask the question why can my intestines not tolerate specific foods. Is the answer a deficiency in the diet reducing the health of the intestines?
I've a read a lot of people comments so far about how they're dealing with acid reflux. I just graduated college and just found out that I have celiac disease, gluten intolerance, after all these years of frustration and embarrassment in college. You can get a simple blood test to see if gluten intolerance is your problem or try cutting out these items and see the reaction you have. Some statistics I've read claim that as many as 1 in 134 people are intolerant to gluten but only 1 in 4,000 know that they are. Most people are wrongly diagnosed with GERD, acid reflux disease, IBS, Lactose intolerance or as my grandma called "sour stomach". I've been diagnosed at some point or another with all of these. I've tried everything from over the counter recipes, friend's home remedies and ACV. While I do believe the ACV helps me to lose weight, it's done very little for my tummy. Cutting out all wheat, barley and rye along with any of their derivatives has been my only form of relief. Trust me too that when I do eat anything with those ingredients in them I get a little pain in my stomach and actually no longer feel hungry after only a eating a little. If I ignore this pain than it is certain that acid reflux will set in and ruin any good times that I thought I was going to have. It is really hard to cut all of these things out of your diet especially living in America where fast food is almost always something with bread, but it can be done. I know salads get old after having them every day but for me switching between salads and rice based meals, Mexican, Asian, etc., is how I live now. They do make some great all purpose flour that is Gluten-free, that I buy at Kroger in the organic section. Also most organic stores carry bagels, English muffins, pizza crusts, waffles, cereal and many more items that are Gluten-free. My favorite is tapioca flour; it's not as brittle and doesn't dry as much as potato or rice flour, the other two popular flours. If you're not near any place that would sell these items they can be found online when you search "gluten-free food". Since I've stopped eating gluten I've been told it will take 3 weeks for my small intestine to heal and up to 6 months for my large intestine to heal. Once I stopped for consecutive days I immediately noticed a difference. It's not that I don't have enough stomach acid but that the small hair in my intestine no longer except nutrients and instead slow the process of digestion and absorb more fat than normal. The more gluten I eat the more weight I gain the more water I store and the worse I feel. So it might be worth a try. If you feel as bad as I did anything is worth trying. Good luck!
Many months ago I posted a comment about the ACV remedy for Acid Reflux. I suddenly got Acid Reflux last winter after taking a lot of Ibuprophen. The ACV remedy worked great, but after almost a year I was not cured. I felt that the ACV was helping me to manage the situaton but not really curing me. I was still having bouts once in a while and then I had reflux pretty severe for more than a week in early September, and the ACV wasn't really touching it. In order to feel better I really started eating very simply, mostly vegetables and some meat. After a few days of this I felt a lot better. But I continued my new simple diet for another couple weeks. Then I decided to add back in some cereals and immediately got Acid Reflux again. I new that I had a low level of gluten intolerance but after this I have come to the conclusion that I've have Celiacs, full blown. Who knows, maybe the ibuprophen weakend my stomach just enough to have the new level of Celiac symptoms. I have eliminated all grains except rice, corn and millet and I feel GREAT! I haven't even bothered with taking ACV for several weeks now. Symptoms of Celiacs or gluten intolerance range widely, so I'd recommend anyone with chronic acid reflux, mental fogginess, depression, anxiety, stomach upset, or skin rash, try eliminating gluten containting grains for a week and see what happens. Don't be afraid that you might be alergic to bread there are A LOT of great resources for Celiacs and gluten intolerant people now adays.
