“How to Wean Off PPIs and Why” is one of the best articles I’ve read since being diagnosed to have Gastritis and lax lower esophageal sphincter. Your article is very encouraging for me. Started lifestyle changes, diet changes, light exercise and will start tapering off PPIs. ~ Santosh

What a wealth of information here! My sincerest thanks as a mother, wife, sister, and daughter who loves to sing but has sustained much damage due to GERD and LPR and is now on the road to healing through a sensible low acid diet and low-stress lifestyle. This information has given me a great starting point. I’ve already started cold brewing my coffee and using alkaline water to make it. Thank you! ~ Camilla

Thank you, Steve, for the information. It has helped greatly. ~ Reneah

Thank you, out of all the reading I have done online for my hormone therapy related reflux, this was the most helpful and reassuring. ~ Anonymous

Thank you for your post on weaning off PPIs. It took me six months to fully wean myself off omeprazole, after taking it for several years and at one point taking 60 mg every day. The omeprazole was masking an irritable esophagus, which I am still treating with liquid Carafate, but at least I’m off the drug associated in so many studies with kidney disease. ~ Dan

I recently start troubling with GERD! Visited many a site, I must say yours is among the top sites I’ve gone through up to now. It augments my knowledge and commitment to further improve my lifestyle, to save me from this nasty condition again, without or less frequent medication routine. Thank you!!! ~ Furqan

Well. Been taking antibiotic “Amoxicilin” for 4 days now for a possible throat infection and now I woke up with the feeling of having a wet sponge stuck in my chest and upper throat when I swallow. I feel the need to burp. ANTIBIOTICS SUCK! Great article on antibiotics and heartburn. ~ Shannon

I have had a lot of issues with acid reflux and am always looking for remedies. Thank you for your tip about reducing stress to help with this. I have never heard of stress causing issues with this before. In addition to medicine, I will try to lower my stress as well as I try to find remedies to help prevent this. ~ Bethel

What a life-saver finding your website. I have been taking 2 x 20 mg Omeprazole in the morning and 2 x 150 mg Ranitidine in the evening for the last 6 months. I have significantly changed my diet, lost weight, upped my exercise and now feel confident that I can start the process of cutting back on heartburn medications. ~ Mary

Your article on getting off PPIs helped me wean off the Protonix while gradually cutting the days I took the PPIs. BTW, my Internist first prescribed Prilosec, which was worse on my gut than the IBS I was also experiencing at that time. ~ Anonymous

“Low Acid Coffee for People with Heartburn and Acid Reflux” is a very great blog and post. I love drinking coffee and this has really great tips for me. Thank you for sharing.
