I did do a video about esophageal cancer, though, on the extraordinary reversal of the kinds of precancerous changes that lead to the devastating condition with nothing but strawberries: Strawberries vs. Esophageal Cancer (

Since this video came out in 2015, I have a few more videos on GERD:

    This won't work, because GERD means stomach acid going into the esophagus.

    I can verify that – I’m a vegan but will get reflux at night if I have a smoothie with a lot of nut butter 🤢

    Can stress cause GERD?

    Cholecystokinin is promoted by protein and polyunsaturated fats (the more unsaturated the more CCK). Saturated fats do not induce CCK, nor do carbs. CCK also prevents stomach emptying in the first place, keeping the stomach fuller longer.

    10 days juice fast will fix this and will never return. Resolved.

    Heartburn can also be a heart attack in disguise
    My mom had a symptom of acid reflux for years, she had a very pale face suddenly, and she died within minutes , on the way to the hospital.
    I found out that symptoms in women for heart attack can be nothing but heartburn. My mom did indicate that it was related to heart and I did tell her that heart attacks have sudden pain or abnormal heartbeats and made her sleep, only that she couldn't speak anything and died.

    Don't take acidity lightly. It can indicate heart attack in many cases.

    I have been wfpb for 18 months lost 55 lbs, bloodwork great. No more reflux at night but still taking prilosec! Everytime I try to get off of it I make it to about day 10 and my stomach really hurts so I go back and start taking it again. Any suggestions?

  22. Dutchess' lips

    I have GERD, especially in the morning. If I eat at night and went to sleep right after it's worse. When I ate animal products, it would hurt to the point where I couldn't breathe for several minutes. A WFPB without oil helped instantly. When I have acid reflux it's WAY less acidic. If it's constant, 1tsp baking soda to 1 cup water helps. Like instant cure. acid+basic=neutral+gas (so drink it slowly). Basic chemistry 🙂
