Title: Prayer Request
Post by: FREEINDEED on October 09, 2009, 03:31:53 PM
I would like to submit a Prayer Request.  I was diagnose with Acid Reflux in December 2008 and was struggling daily with it where as I couldn't work at my full-time job.  So I had to quit my Job because I couldn't get STD (short term disability).  Finally after quitting my job I started feeling better in July 2009.  Right now I'm able to manage it a whole lot better.  But I still have some days where I wake up feeling kind of sick.  I just want someone to touch and agree with me on this terrible disease that is trying to control my Body.  I even have a fear of taking a Full-time job, because I think that my Acid Reflux will start acting up again.  Please pray that I will be totally healed of this Acid Reflux disease.  So that I can be totally active in my life again.

Welcome to the forum.

I'm praying for God's will to be done in your situation.

I hope you'll continue to look into means of getting rid of this very bothersome and upsetting syndrome.  I've had quite a few episodes myself, and have found that changing my eating habits to cut out food and drink a couple of hours or so before bedtime is a large help in stopping the reflux from occuring.  I know there are also medications which help in stronger cases than mine.

Try a table spoon of apple cider vinegar before bed.  Maybe delute it a little.  I know it sounds crazy but it might help.  Also, try Mona Vie.  I know that what you have is more serious than indigestion but it may help.

I'm praying for your healing, but that may not be God's will for you. I say this because I've had this problem for years and I have to take medication every day. I'm also trying to lose weight as obesity doesn't help. Whatever happens, it is a problem that can be controlled, so don't get desperate.

I have it too and know the feeling of "Can I work today"? Mine has been controlled better by medication but it is still with me. All we can do is the best we can do!

Hello Freeindeed, my wife has reflux too, she has been looking into treating this problem as a fungus. Provided is a link that she has been researching. She did the diet thing and intifungal medicine as well as other intifungal remedies. She has seen a lot of relief.

 Or type Doug Kaufman in your search bar.

Welcome Freeindeed! I will keep you in my prayers. I once suffered from this all the time. I very seldom have it any more. I know it can really mess your life up. I would check into some of the things Roy told you about.

In His Love,
