I know the protocol will eventually eliminate problems like heartburn or reflux (GERD), but do you suggest anything to help with they symptoms in the meantime ?
I think occasional mild antacids such as Tums or Rolaids are fine. Just make sure your physician is aware of your symptoms and how long it has been going on. If the symptoms of reflux are not controlled still not controlled, the use of stronger anti-histamine or proton pump inhibiting antacids may be necessary to prevent permanent damage to the esophagus from the refluxing acid. Alternatively, if the reflux only occurs at when laying down to sleep, sleeping on a foam wedge can sometimes be very effective at controlling symptoms without the use of medications.
