I’ve had digestion / acid reflux / bloating issues since I was 22. As i’m now 40, I’ve tried 100’s of natural / holistic / exercise / pharmaceutical cures to resolve my issues. I keep track in my beloved OneNote
With the added stress during the covid-19 lockdown, I’ve found myself having more digestive issues. A few weeks back, following a phone consultation with my doc here in Montreal, I got a diagnosis for a condition called GERD which has led me to adopt a low-acid diet. I read through the following book which gave me a set of rules to follow for 30 days, and then another set of more relaxed rules in the 30 days that followed, and for life!https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01EE0FA9W/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1
Managing the same tasks as reading technical documents, working with clients, reading emails, checking slack, etc has become easier without coffee, as i’m not riding the ups and downs of the caffeine high. Whatever energy I’ve got when I wake up, is maintained throughout the day. I’m not sleepy, and my mind is not racing, I’m just LEVEL.
Most importantly, following the removal of coffee and following the low-acid diet for all meals, my digestion has improved tremendously
If you’re struggling with acid reflux , bloating symptoms, consider the above book or other resources on GERD and a low-acid diet. Doing so, might change your life, I know it changed mine for the better 🙂
have a good day!
Update for May 2021: One year later, I was taking PPCI medication last year to help with my acid reflux, but I stopped earlier this year. Instead, I’m continuing to follow a low acid diet. I still drink caffeine , but in smaller amounts
