    I *was" on Prilosec for years.... but now, in just 3 DAYS

    Primal Fuel
    My heartburn symptoms have gone away. Yep, I started on eating primal on Monday, and around 6PM Tuesday I remembered that I had not taken a Prilosec yet, and strangely enough, I didn't feel the need to, so I didn't... and now, it is almost 11PM Wednesday, and still no Prilosec. Please tell it will stay this way!

    Yes, it will stay away unless you eat garbage.

    My daughter claims that eating wheat gives her heartburn. Maybe she's actually onto something? (She's only 10 so I have no idea... but she DOES say she's going to be primal now for the rest of her life!).

    Awesome!!!!

    I had really bad acid reflux and it got a bit better when I tried gluten free but it didn't go entirely away until I went grain free. I even got back on the sugar wagon for a year and it didn't come back. As long as I wasn't eating grains I could have tomatoes (even V-8) and chocolate and all those things they tell you not to have when you have heartburn. And no need for the Nexium I was prescribed

    I wish my boyfriend could watch your progress. He is an older guy, 62, and while he isn't very fat, he does have so many other problems that could be fixed so much better than through all those pills. I cheer you on and hope you inspire more and more people so that eventually there will be a sea of healthy people all around us everywhere, all experiencing these miracle cures to their former ill health through a healthy, simple diet.

    My heartburn went away and stayed away UNTIL I eat wheat or crap food. Heartburn, when you haven't had it for a while, is awful. SO GLAD that you are having positive experiences!
    Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.

    One of the biggest advantages of low carb and paleo eating for me has always been the end of acid reflux. I'm always amazed how a day where I eat processed sugars and breads will lead to a night where I need some Tums or a glass of bi-carb. When people wonder how I can live without bread, pasta and cakes, this is one of the reasons I give.

    I spent years taking Pepcid and recently threw out several expired boxes I no longer needed.

    Yay for you PP.

    Maybe you should keep a journal of all of this so you can submit yourself as a success story in 6 months? (I'd leave out the cutting of your hand).
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    I would only occasionally get acid reflux in the middle of the night. I had heartburn a little more often. I always felt like my stomach was a little swollen or bloated though. I have not had ANY of these problems since going primal 4.5 months ago. If you stick with it I am pretty sure you'll be able to ditch the Prilosec permanently

    Me too.... tho it is healing well, but is still hurts a ton when you bang it.

    We shall see about a success story..... that would REALLY be something for "me"...... It would be nice to be successful.
