In the 3-step detox, you are not allowed to eat gluten containing grains. I was on the 3-step detox due to my allergies (it's about that time to do the detox, anyway-I do it twice a year.) I ate a sourdough bread this morning and it's been sitting in my throat for a few hour-a nagging reminder why we shouldn't eat white bread and other highly refined grain products.
A nurse-patient of ours came to have her GERD fixed. She ate whole grains. I advised her to stop grains and dairy. After dismissing my recommendations and being fed up with her reflux, she followed my plan for two weeks and was pleasantly surprised to see practically ALL symptoms of GERD diminish.
