How Wayne beat 15 years of Acid Reflux

A lovely gentleman from Texas, Wayne had suffered with acid reflux for 15 years. He also had multiple other concerns such as:

  • bloating
  • gas
  • fatigue
  • chronic ear pain
  • headaches.

Wayne was particularly concerned about his experiences of being rushed to hospital on several occasions feeling like he was having a heart attack.

Remarkably, Wayne hadn’t been offered any meaningful lab tests by the docs he’d seen, but had been put on PPI drugs for the last 10yrs to block his stomach acid production.

8 months after commencing work with us, it was heart warming to hear Wayne say that he was 100%% free from acid reflux and had completely stopped the PPIs.

After eight months under the care of David and Jack, I felt 100% better and 15 years of symptoms were behind me. I no longer take any acid reflux medication, have improved several other health challenges that I wasn’t expecting and am now continuing to use the tools I learned on the program to stay 100% free of any digestive medications.

Wayne’s Stool Test

When we work with clients, we don’t play guessing games – instead we seek to find the reasons why they don’t feel well using scientific testing.

Wayne began his journey back to health by running a comprehensive stool test. The test found a yeast and fungal overgrowth along with a parasite.

The stool test also showed Wayne really wasn’t digesting his food very well. His triglycerides were among the highest we’d seen, and his LCFA and total fat levels in the stool were also sky high.

These markers generally mean there are problems with stomach acid levels and liver / gallbladder function, which points us to areas we need to support.

Undigested food can give rise to virtually any and every digestive symptom, as well as leading to nutrient deficiency.

If you’re not digesting and absorbing fats efficiently, there’s no way you’re getting enough fat soluble vitamins into your body – vitamins A, D, E, K and CoQ10.

This doesn’t just lead to fatigue, mood and other common symptoms, it also increases the risk for developing more advanced illnesses.

Correcting digestion is absolutely essential and Wayne didn’t want to hang around now he could see what was going on.

Timescales

To his credit, Wayne knew it would take a while to reverse up a decade and a half of symptoms.

He embarked on a program of nutrition and lifestyle adjustments and individualized natural supplement protocols to remove bad bugs and support gut function.

Wayne’s results were more impressive than anyone expected. Within just one month his acid reflux had been reduced a great deal and, for the first time in a decade he was not relying on PPI meds to deal with it.

His bloating, gas, headaches, ear pain and sleep quality were also improving.

Additional tests

Wayne was very enthused by his progress, so we ran some additional tests to assess function in other body systems, particularly his hormone and detox systems.

Wayne’s thyroid metabolism was out of balance and he had adrenal fatigue.

Furthermore, he was low in key energy production nutrients and was clearly being exposed to the solvent xylene on a frequent basis (common in homes and offices).

Wayne had worked as a painter and in home refurbishing and had been exposed to xylene for years.

We created additional protocols to support his thyroid, adrenals and nutrient status, and Wayne made further excellent progress.

Here’s what he said in his testimonial:

“Now, don’t get me wrong and think that this program is as simple as taking some supplements and that will do it. No, it takes some nutrition and lifestyle work and the decision as to whether or not I really wanted to get well or just go through another half hearted attempt.”

Wayne’s words are ultra-important – some of the most important you’ll ever read if you want to restore your health.

Some people can get well very quickly – often in a matter of a few weeks. But others need a little longer.

It’s really important to have realistic expectations.

There’s no quick fix.

Nobody wakes up in the morning dedicated to resolve your health challenges – only you can do that.

If you have the motivation and determination to do what’s necessary – change your diet a bit, alter your lifestyle a little, take some tests and use specifically recommended supplements – you can get the same results as Wayne.

It all starts with a stool test, because your gut is often where the problem is at.

If there’s a load of bad food and bad bugs in there, it’s not going to work properly.

If your gut’s damaged, you can’t get nutrients into your body.

This is one of the main reasons you’re probably walking around with symptoms related to your mood, energy levels, digestion, skin, sleep, sex drive and others.

Jack and I are biased, but we know for sure we can help you if you’re willing to bite the bullet and get the stool test done.

And don’t forget, the tests are done in the privacy of your own home – you just send off a sample in the packaging provided.

What’s more, if it comes back blank, you get a full refund.

You can arrange a test, or just find out more about them, here.

Best

Dave.
