  • been suffering from acid reflux for months it got worse during this quarantine that I’m starting to feel like I’m choking and something’s stuck in my throat. I don’t know if it’s just my anxiety or I’m really having little trouble breathing

  • Everybody this is the REAL DEAL. I did these stretches once and the pain went down significantly and the next day almost nothing. I can finally rest and get up without pain! Omg I did not believe this would work, I was in pain for almost a month, diagnosed with planar fascia. These first two days have been amazing, I can’t imagine how great I’ll feel keeping this up for a week. THANK YOU

  • I’ve been having GERD and IBS for a few months now and the only treatment I have is taking medicine and minor lifestyle changes. I should probably try this.

  • Thanks a lot for the help. After working 12 hour days as a security guard I had to quit because standing on my feet the whole time wouldn’t allow me to get up the morning. These exercises sure do help.

  • That foot massage is hard…I’m so ticklish that I keep laughing. And forget about someone else doing it! Anybody even looks at my feet and I start giggling. But hey, at least I start the morning with a good laugh! Thanks for this, Dr. Jo!

  • Hello everyone. Been dealing with acid reflux for more than 2 weeks now. Also had IBS. So the doctor recommend Omeprazole and spasmomen but I felt nothing is happening. So what I did is, I switch to alkaline water (pH9) and also try chamomile tea. It really works wonders! I think it’s a miracle tea. I swear. Try moderate exercise and more fibrous food in your diet. Today, I have no symptoms. Hope this will help you too. Let us all heal.

  • I’m not sure but,if anyone else needs to find out about how do you relieve acid reflux? try Larlazboon Predictable Domination (do a search on google )? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my cousin got great success with it.

  • I am experiencing acid reflux this for 2 weeks already. First time in my life. I had trouble sleeping because of it. I constantly burp and sometimes, I cant breathe after eating. Been taking omeprazole to reduce acid and spasmomen for my IBS. I let go of my fave food too. I eat vegetables everyday and tried high-fiber diet. I eat banana, pear, and avocado. I tried exercising everyday for 10-20 mins because the doctor said I have to lose weight. I also practice diaphragmatic breathing, meditation, and yoga every morning and before I sleep.

    I manage to reduce the symptoms.
    I hope for us to heal soon guys. You’re not alone.

  • For the people who have heartburn and sometimes wake up at night and need to puke. You might have a hiatal hernia half of the populatian has a hiatal hernia with no or little symptoms. I have had this for 2-3 years without knowing it… Untill endoscopy showed.
