Treat reflux with MORE acid?

I have several LPR symptoms:
- throat has an almost permanent "frog", and sometimes "burns"
- spells of loud drawn-out burping
- above symptoms intensify with meal-size and sugar-content
- scary past episode of bronchial tubes filling every couple of minutes with white, frothy, salty-tasting mucus which was hard to cough out without gagging
- acid erosion of teeth suggestive of reflux (according to my dentist)

My doctor has prescribed a PPI (Somac) for me, but the potential side-effects have put me off taking it.

For the moment I am holding symptoms in check by diet, without drugs.

Chris Kesser suggests treating GERD/LPR with a low-carb diet and acid supplements (e.g. lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, or a HCl/Pepsin capsule).

Dr Rodger Murphree makes a similar argument.

Has any LPR sufferer here found acid supplements helpful (or otherwise)?

Re: Treat reflux with MORE acid?

Hi Richard Lee one of my relatives had Gerd I think he used to fill his stomach too full and too often. I am curious as to how often you eat and if you have ever filled your stomach to the point of pain. Perhaps you might be willing to share how many cups of food you eat in one meal and your height.

I'm 5'9". I eat usually 3 times/day, usually until I feel full, but never to the point of pain. The number of cups I eat varies with how concentrated the food is. I don't like to eat more meals because it tends to result in too loose a bowel motion.
