If You’ve Got GERD, Then Treat It With Low-Carb

Filed under: Health — @ January 18, 2007

Nothing proves the health benefits of livin’ la vida low-carb better than real people sharing their own experiences following this amazing lifestyle change. That’s exactly what I found in a syndicated health column featuring Joe and Teresa Graedon.

Interestingly, I’ve blogged about the Graedon’s before when another one of their readers told them how the low-carb lifestyle not only helped control his weight and blood sugar, but completely eliminated his heartburn.

This latest letter featured someone who used to suffer from gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD. He said the condition was so bad that it forced him to take Prilosec every single day. So he tried low-carb to combat it.

“After three days, I realized that I had no heartburn, so I discontinued the Prilosec without ill effects,” he exclaimed.
