I too, have started a gluten free diet for IBS and heartburn /GERD. My IBS has all but gone away, but I still have pretty bad GERD. I take Prilocec daily, and need it. I would really like to stop taking it, but haven't found a way. Is it possible you can just become dependent on the medication?
And, what is msn?

I was on all sorts of meds for my IBS, heartburn, Gerd etc, and not until I decided for myself to try going gluten free did I find some relief. That did work if I watched all things like corn, wheat but until Feb. this year we- my husband and I went Paleo, No grains no dairy have I really found relief. I am good as long as I make my own food and eat only whole foods. I have found processed foods have hidden ingredients so I only use whole & ground spices as well. This has worked best for me to find relief from the pain.

Dr. Oz says 60% of the population has gluten intolerance and call it so many other things. I am tending to believe it as I live another day without pain.

What is MSM? I am suffering lately and at least I am
monitoring what I eat and stop eating the triggers. I
have been on Nexium for years and I'm tird of popping a pill.

I've been wondering the same thing, 155.....I began an elimination diet to see which foods are causing me grief & was told that the Protonix & Pepcid I've been prescribed could throw off the results. It was suggested that I use MSM. I've been giving it a try, but frankly, I'm waking up in the middle of the night in agony. I worried about the bone density issue as well. Anybody here have any insight on this?

What about taking digestive enzymes, instead of meds. wouldn't that work? Just asking. Cuz, Taking those meds, I don't wantto get bone loss, especially when at this age, we start to loose it anyways.
