I feel for you! I only suffered sith my hiatal hernia and acid reflux for a year. I exhausted all of the conventional methods for relief from medicine to raising my bed to diet...everything. I lost 30 lbs and was in the er every week for dehydration from not eating because it made the pain and acid worse to eat. I found MY CURE from a natropathic physician who physically pulled my stomach down out of my diaphram, helped me with diet, helped my whole body and helped me to understand my whole body. It took my an entire year to recover but it has been two years now and in the past year I have had pain and acid only one time and that was after eating too much food I should not of been. The only draw back is the expense. But after I add up what I was paying for meds and co pays and er visits I believe that the money spent on my natropathic lifesaver is well spent. I did have every test known to man to rule out cancer or anything more serious and was finally told it was in my head before I found my lifesaver. I wish everyone the best with this horrible stomach problem.
