  • 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.

  • How come i only found your channel now Doctor jo?! �� Will try this early tom. Actually im now tempted to try it but its 1am already and I might wake up my aunt who i shared my room with �� Thank you so much Dr. Jo❤❤❤ you’re heaven sent!

  • Thanks Dr. Jo. You were great help when I had a problem with knee pain, so when I saw you had help for plantar fasciitis, I knew this was the video I wanted to watch.

  • Reasons for acid production and acid reflux

    1. Hpyroli bacteria
    2. Hital hernia
    3. Irregular eating lifestyle
    4. Lying on bed after eating.
    5. Taking Heavy before bed

  • I was doing your videos but I have a hiatus hernia and have noticed that many of them aggravate it. I’m pretty sad about this as I love your videos. Can you do more yoga videos that would be suitable for hernia sufferers? Also, I still want to tone my abs and work on core muscles is this off limits now?

  • This sequence is amazing, but really need a voice over so I/we can move through it without having to read and look up at the screen. Very disruptive to the whole sequence. Of course, watching you is what we are left with, and you are very relaxing to watch!

  • okay the no talking annoys me because i always close my eyes when doing yoga and focus on what my body is doing while listening to the instructions, now i cant do that://

  • Hi doc.. I experienced this few months back. Initially it used to swell around my ankle area, no pain. But then gradually, swelling stopped. I was detected with heel spur. Currently, I have no pain in my heel but on the arch. I will try these stretches. Thanks.

  • I have been facing this problem for 3 years the think i understood that one day this will end completely i believe that i have hope in Allah i pray to Allah that he help all those people including me who are facing this just stay strong make your family help you try to make them understand one day we all will say that we were stupid to think about nausea always because we would be facing bigger problems and Allah will help us to get through this all life is about sorrow and happiness not just happiness but also include sorrows but the legends are those who face them like eye to eye stay strong may Allah help us all

  • For me, It started in the 2nd week of this quarantine and its been 2 months now I am suffering from this acid reflux which has never happened to me before. And now I have lost like 8-9 kgs, I feel terrible but reading the comments kinda made me feel alot better and specially this video. Thanks guys for sharing your experiences.

  • For this reason acid reflux disease medication “Tοzυnhο Kοrο” (Gοοgle it), I was able to recover from my digestive troubles. There`s no harm in trying this treatment. You never know this may handle your digestive complications as well as chronic acid reflux disorder…

  • Thank you adreine coz i am struggling mg anxiety and gerd but watching your video its help me a lot. Thank you girl for sharing this video i started watching all of your video..stay safe girl.

  • Plaintain French fries ��! Lol ��.. it’s been 3 years and getting worse! Hopefully it’s works, will try.. thanks doc ��.. be safe everyone..

  • After cancer surgery on my vocal chords I soooo feel for your voice! And yes, acid reflux is part of the problem for me so this little seance was so helpful. But please could you possibly do an update with voice guidance? It would be so appreciated. ��‍♀️����❤️

  • Thank you…….sooo… Much I am suffering from morning so I saw this and I did just two times I got relief 50percent once many many thanks sir

  • quarantine, drinking too much coffee, lying in bed straight after meals and i have the worst acid reflux for almost 2/3 weeks so its time to take action.
    1)chamomile tea to reduce stress
    2)coconut oil pulling to help rid bacteria in mouth as i had bad breath.
    3)raising the head of my bed by 6 inches
    4)using ginger in everything from meals to tea
    5)yoga with adrienne
    6)drinking lots of water and not eating before bed
    hope this helps anyone in a similar postion.

  • The painful sensation of heartburn has been vanished since I started out applying this heartburn treatment https://t.co/yGqhYaiClu I had been able to do my normal routines again! I`ve eaten spicy food, take out, I have tried and tested and am 100% happy with the results!?

  • I had my first attack about 5 weeks ago and have been healing and learning more. It kept me away from yoga and I’m so grateful for this practice! Thank you Adrienne ❤️

  • Recently diagnosed with GERD and hiatal hernia and it sucks. Eating has become totally stressful for me, as I’ve had to completely change my diet. During this pandemic all i want to do is snack and it’s been so difficult finding food that actually doesn’t cause me discomfort. I’ve had so much anxiety regarding meal times and just doing this once has really helped me. Thank you so much for sharing this. ����

  • thank you so much for this video. I am on the beginning of my healing journey from GERD, I also have damaged my vocal chords. Reading the comments and de-stressing with your yoga routines has been my guiding light through this difficult life adjustment. So thank you for all that you do! <3

  • Hey, I feel some sort of discomfort when I exhale, like a feeling of some emptiness inside which makes me feel very uncomfortable when I sleep. Again, this is all from the lockdown period.. is this gotta do with acid reflux as I never had any history of it nor do I know what it feels like..

  • Many thanks, I’ve been looking for “chronic reflux of stomach acids” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across Mackorny Cool Stomach Blueprint ( search on google )? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my brother in law got cool success with it.

  • Just saw this helpful comments and just got acid reflex couple days ago, it calmed down after a day taking pepdo and tums. But feel like its going to linger �� didnt want to go to the doctor but have to. annoying

  • I have tested other means just like classic medication and even the modern day medications in the treatment of my acid reflux disease, constipation, and leaking gut and not one of them have demonstrated to be helpful. I just adhered to the first step in acid reflux disease treatment method “Tοzυnhο Kοrο” (Gοοgle it) and now all of my aches are eliminated and some of my signs or symptoms are alleviated…

  • I do not have acid reflux, however I do have irritable bowel syndrome�� If I ever eat aomething that my body does not appreciate, then I always do this yoga routine and it always helps! Also, if I have stomach issues due to stress, this is always the yoga routine that I turn to. It’s better than any medicine for me! I hope you feel better!❤️

  • I found this practice today because I have an upset stomach and I do not like missing at least a short amount of yoga daily. This was perfect for me today. Thank you so much for having these awesome practices available for all of we yogis in the world! Namaste!

  • My aunt was suffering from Heartburn. In this person have difficulty in swallowing of food and persistent nausea and vomiting. It is mainly due to the formation of the gastric reflux into the esophagus (Food pipe). She used Ayurvedic remedies of Planet Ayurveda and got very effective results.

  • हेलो सब लोगो को| मेरी बहन पिछले साल से एसिड रिफ्लक्स और खट्टे गले की पीड़ित थीं। उसने एंडोस्कोपी भी की थी लेकिन इसने मुझे कोई परिणाम नहीं मिला । उन्हें लगता था कि उसके पेट में कुछ है, लेकिन यह बाहर नहीं आ रहा है। वह कुछ भी खा पी नहीं पा रही थी। वह बड़ी मुश्किल में थी। कुछ भी करने में सक्षम नहीं थी । लेकिन सौभाग्य से, चंडीगढ़ के मेरे एक दोस्त ने मुझे प्लेनेट आयुर्वेद के बारे में बताया। मैंने उनसे संपर्क किया, उन्होंने बहन को एसिडिटी केयर पैक लेने का सुझाव दिया। उन्होंने इसे ग्रह आयुर्वेद के डॉ। द्वारा निर्धारित रूप में लेना शुरू कर दिया था। आप लोग विश्वास नहीं करते कि यह उनके लिए चमत्कार जैसा था। इसका परिणाम सिर्फ 15 दिनों में दिखा। इसने मेरी बहन के जीवन को खुशहाल और अम्लीय मुक्त बनाने में मदद की… बहुत बहुत धन्यवाद आयुर्वेद।

  • I had never experienced reflux until the quarantine! (Stress, overeating, and lack of movement, oh my!) I am on a journey to heal and this video has helped me multiple times. Thank you!

  • I’ve had plantar fasciitis for about five months and find that with a combination of stretches and ice packs, I’m able to control the pain. I also think that since I’ve been working from home this year, the rest has been beneficial. However, what I’d like to know is, how long is it going to take to recover? I hope its not one of those things I just have to get used to (as in permanently). Thanks for the video!

  • Seeing all of the comments here I feel less alone in this. I’ve had gastric problems since 2014 and it’s getting worse in 2016. Been going to several doctors since, did endoscopy (I was 20 at that time and was the youngest to do endoscopy. knowing this fact breaks me a little.) Ever since then, my GERD come and go for years and years, never truly healed completely. and it’s getting worse again this year, so bad that I had to be taken to ICU in March. The doctor gave me medications and I’ve been taking them but it’s not getting better. *note that I’ve been trying my best to avoid foods that might trigger acid reflux.
    hope we all can overcome this and heal.
    **sorry if there’re any grammatical errors, I’m from Indonesia and still struggle with grammars and such

  • I just came across your video. Thank you for making this!!!!

    It really helped ease my chest and tense muscles that seem to ALWAYS happen to me when I get reflux/gerd-like symptoms.

    I’ve noticed, for me, it’s both a combination of food and stress/anxiety which flares it up and sometimes it lasts for days/weeks if I don’t ease my symptoms early enough. Stressing, having even thebslughtest anxiety, and arguing definitely make my esophagus tighten up and apparently stress is definitely a common thing to flare it up.

    Hard to control the diet portion. I love coffee, only have it once per day, sometimes I skip a day or so if I don’t feel like making it. Most foods seem to have cheeses, some spices, and some acidity to a point, which makes it so difficult to swear by the anti-reflux diet. Most food I enjoy have Something that’s a known trigger for reflux. I have always hated bland food. I varietize what I eat as much as possible.

    This week was hard because I ate a small bag of flaming hot cheetos for a snack, then the next day (yesterday) my in-laws brought over deviled eggs, potato salad, and baked beans, which… heh, gave me TONS of reflux tightness and, well, gas.. all day today. Heh! But, food! Yummy, right?! Regretfully, yes… lol!

    I feel like this would also very much help with panic attacks too, as it really loosens up the chest muscles to relax all the built up tension there.

    This video really helped release some of the tightness that occurs with all of this… helped ease the majority of my reflux symptoms, little by little and I feel de-stressed as well. Going to refer to this anytime I forget how to do one of these, and I will share for my family and friends that deal with this, too.

  • For months I had pain from my back and buttocks, went for exrays they didn’t find anything. Today I tried these stretches didn’t think they would work, but actually I noticed such a difference. It helped so much. I wish I did this sooner. Thank you so much!��

  • Oh Sweet Adriene, I have quite a while following you and bumped with this video because of a search, I just recently got diagnosed with GERD and surprised myself with this video, you don’t have an idea how my heart warms to get to know more people that relates with this and know how hard it can be. Please do more videos for this. Virtual hugs and thanks for sharing ❤

  • The doctors gave me literally no advice post op, I’ve suspected the tightness and pain in my foot and leg had to do with not stretching the muscles properly.good vid

  • Thank you so much ma’am. I get relief because of your video. Keep doing this great work. Spread yoga to entire world it’s really amazing thing.

  • Hi Adriene, I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of your videos. I have been following you since 2017 and your videos have provided me with much needed strength and joy at times when I needed them. If I may ask, can you please describe how you got over your acid reflux? I would love to get back to doing some of the bending poses that do not help with my acid reflux at the moment.
    Much love,

  • Can I use any foot massager in the morning? I have some hard, knobby massagers but are those too intense? Should I use something softer like a tennis ball or pool noodle?

  • Very good. I had results immediately and I was surprised how difficult this stretch is. I had to lay on the bed and use the wall lo lift my leg. I was too out of shape for it.

  • All i can say is 243 ppl with thumbs down can stick it. I’m a 47 yr old skateboarder & kept writing off my pains as a bruised heel until i looked into it more. This video gave me positive results the following morning! Will continue with multiple times a day. Thanks Dr Jo!

  • Hi Adrienne, thank you for this video, just one request if you dont mind, for better concentration on the moves, is it ok if you put voice over on it instead? Im a gerd sufferrer almost everyday and this will help me a lot, thank you so mich and hope you consider my request…Love Yah! ����

  • Is this working???Nothing is working for me i have this burning sensation in my mid chest for 20 days and 3 days before I feel like someone is choking my throat and now there is this constant irritation in my throat..Am scared i can’t sleep..Is this gerd??Someone plss tell me

  • Just a question for the first stretch. I have hypermobility bad in my knees. Do I stretch with my knee straight (hyperextended) or slightly bent (so what would be straight to normal knees)?

  • Hi Doctor Jo I am having plantar fasciitis since April 2019 which I am managing by rest and stretches. When I showed to orthopaedic five months back I was diagnosed with varicose veins and spider veins too. He gave me some pain killers and advised me to wear compression stockings all the time. Whenever I have to stand more my right leg calf muscles become as tight as stone and even the upper bone of lower leg starts paining. Please advise what more exercises should I do?

  • Im 33 and I feel this is the only and only stretching for beginners! I have one tip, would it be nice you you also show us how to make the exercise completely, for instance, after explaining you could do it two or three times! =)

  • Thank you for this! I know its an old video, could you do another one, maybe a bit longer and with voice guidence? Im suffering from Gerd at the moment, i know its caused by stress cause I had anxiety and lots of panic attacks lately. My grandma died, i have final exams in law school and with all the crazy things happening in the world, it made my reflux very bad. I hope it will get better soon, I just run out of ideas how to help reduce the symptoms.

  • I’m in tears while doing this. I was recently diagnosed with an upper GI disease and GERD has been one thing I have been battling with. I have completely changed my diet, am taking medication, and I have been active doing yoga and running, meditating, etc. Even with all of that I still have days where I am so uncomfortable and my anxiety takes over. Doing this video made me feel so much joy and peace and hearing your story brings me hope and makes me feel not alone. Thank you so much for sharing your story. It is so important to know you’re not the only one. Thank you for all of your videos. I do them dailyespecially now during COVID-19.

  • I’m only 27 and I think I have this. I thought it was my Achilles heel because that’s where it hurts the second most or first most sometimes. Right behind my shin behind my leg above my heel. But my worst pain is on the inner side of my foot. Just like the side. When I wake up in the morning it feels like my foot is pulsating in pain and expanding at the same time. Just swelling in pain. It’s so unbearable I can’t take it anymore I feel like literally crying every morning. I’ve never felt such pain in my life. I bought compression socks. It seems to help a little and and ankle bracelet although I don’t know if that helps with this. I have epsom salt but I’m not too sure about that either. What I do know is when I wake up in the morning I just want to die from the pain off the charts. I really need pain killers and I don’t have health insurance. This really sucks. Especially self diagnosing it but I think this is what it is. I’ll try these excercizes but I’m the morning when I wake up in hurts too bad to put ANY pressure on it. And it takes a good 4-5 hours to be able to walk on it again after putting light weight on the foot. I feel so helpless and so emotional from this I just don’t know what to do

  • the part under my metathersals are inflamed according to my doctor. He said i have plantar faciitis and started eswt which really hurts! So the name is still the same if i have no heel pain, but have foot ball pain? I only have pain when i tiptoe, reach up or jump a lot of times

  • These videos are a great source of understanding the painful existant being endure. It finally occurred to me that inflamation was the cause. Voila’ as it turns out I was correct. I now have a name to associate what I’ve been going through. To each and every contributing sources of information I must say Thank you! I’m only 68, and walking can be a cause of avoidance whereby each step has been excruciating. Again thank you all for the exercise tips, and self remedies! To You Tube I truly believe that your platform is the greatest resource of information upon this earth! Thank you! Thank you especially the music, the recipes,the how to’s [ I can’t began to say how many time YouTube has provided solutions when all seemed hopeless!] I absolutely love your Platform!

  • Dear Adriene, greetings and thank you!�� I also lost my voice two months ago because of reflux.. Could you tell us how it came back? It would give me hope!!! It’s two months I can’t talk and I live from teaching ��

  • This is very helpful. I am currently on natural medications. Since many people are suffering from similar problems, is anyone interested in joining a Facebook group? I think anxiety is one of the reasons it can worsen so we can all support each other. Let me know if anyone is interested and I will create. We can share what we are going through and doing (diet changes, medicines, any lifestyle changes).
