Michelle Garcia Posted November 19, 2012 Share Posted November 19, 2012 Hi guys! I am seven days into this after having jumped in headfirst and, admittedly, a bit unprepared. Nonetheless, I have been feeling great and I am loving the difference. I'll admit that I haven't read the complete ISWF book, so I'm hoping you'll forgive me if this question has already been addressed somewhere. I am 34 and have been on acid reflux medication for something like 12 years, the last 7 of which I've been on omeprazole (generic Prilosec). I rarely have breakthrough symptoms - maybe a couple times a year - so I've felt like the omeprazole has addressed by problems. I had an endoscopy performed something like 8 years ago that only found a small hiatal hernia, which bascially meant it wasn't a big enough deal for the doctor to even bother dealing with. I have not stopped taking my omeprazole during my Whole30. For the past couple of days I have been feeling a lot of breakthrough indigestion/reflux, especially in the evenings. I have had similar trouble in the past when I have gone on a diet that calls for lots of salads, so I don't know if it's the fact that I'm eating more roughage that is harder to break down, or what. Is this something that I can expect to diminish? I read that others suggested taking digestive enzymes in an effort to get off the reflux medications, so I'll try that this week, and I'll plan to see my doctor as well. Does anyone have any experience dealing with reflux and indigestion during Whole30 in spite of being medicated? I'd really appreciate your input!! Thanks!!
