  1. I like the test. I can’t differentiate between Gerd and LPR after being diagnosed with HPyroli. I used to have heartburn but after taking point for 3 weeks, I now have a dry throat with a burning sensation

    • If you have H-pylori I believe that can be treated with most commonly anti-biotics. Also there is a natural alternative called mastic gum which has been proven to stop H-pylori as well. I would recommend considering them.

  2. I have been diginosed with heritable hernia and acid reflux More than a year ago. I thought it had gone away but it is back with burning mouth and the breathing problem. I an taking digestacure it is for autoimmune . It healed before so I hope it will this time. I did not have the breathing and wheezing before only at night when I lay down after a few hours of sleep. I know to stop coffee wine and spicy foods or acidic things. Are there other foods I should be careful of.

  3. I have this terrible dry nose and chest and throat, facial flushing and the sinuses are so dry I start smelling this smoky smell when nothing around me is burning.
    Pretty sure I have it.

    • Yeah based on your symptoms there is definitely a good chance. Acid can affect the sinuses and there is a good chance the dryness is caused by the acid reflux as well
