It’s been frightening that since the age of 28 I’ve been dealing with respiratory problems, but what’s even more frightening is that none of the Nutritionists I have spoken to until last Tuesday, had suggested the right supplements to help me address my reflux.
I have been given advice now that has made a big difference to my health. I’ve been told there is a possible link between reflux and a deficiency in Vitamin D3, which is good news for those of us who struggle with reflux.
Unfortunately until the message filters through, there will still be people like me living with reflux, who won’t know about the possible link between a Vitamin D deficiency and reflux. It has taken me many consultations through the non-conventional route and only now has it come to light that this is why they think I’ve struggled for as long as I have.
Since I’ve started on my new regime, I’ve not struggled and for the first time, I am managing to eat some of the foods that I’ve had to take out my diet, because of reflux. The irony is that my diet has always been relatively healthy.
Although diet plays a big part in reflux for many sufferers, it’s only added to my problems, it’s not the main reason. The main reasons for me, are being premature, having Cerebral Palsy and being a second twin.
