However, since going primal a few weeks ago, I've started to cut them out and not noticed any reflux. I had a big Angus steak the other night and would normally suffer without my Betaine Hydrochloride, but felt no ill effects without taking the tablet.

    I haven't had any reflux related issues since quitting grains, sugars and processed crap. I personally think that had the most to do with why I dont get reflux anymore. You have a good point with the low acid thing, but I have been on acid inhibitors twice prior from two ulcers (or the same one re-opened)I developed from the advil and other Ibuprofens I used to take daily. So, I know I was making more than adequate stomach acid. I cut out the stuff above and was able to get rid of all the reflux.

    Once I cut out soda my heartburn subsided for a week or two, then came back. I figured it might be tied to caffeine, so I stopped all coffee intake and only have tea a few times a month. Zero heartburn since.

    Good for you.

    Just goes to show that just because people have the same symptoms doesn't mean they have the same problem.

    If it would be gallstone, it would be something serious and should be taken cared of right away. There's a new concept today that doesn't include removing your gall bladder in surgery, just the gallstone itself.

    Check this step by step experience and see for yourself. whatisgallstone.com
