On this page you will find the links to all the posts on this blog that speak of my personal story and experiences with multiple digestive issues. I hope you will find them helpful.

I have created this new blog to help inform anyone who comes across it about a completely ignored aspect of struggling with stomach acid reflux / heartburn / GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease).
I am not a doctor—not even close. I am a regular person who has had various very frustrating circumstances trying to discover the reasons for my health problems and have sought hard to find the REAL answers for what is ailing me. I have searched for answers BEYOND what the medical community has offered because they have had NO definite answers or reasons for what is really happening in my body. Instead doctors want to give me another medication to merely treat symptoms (without knowing the root cause), or they offer me a formal name to another disease they now say I have.

People who have too little acid production in their stomachs have practically the very same symptoms as those who have too much acid production.
