Acid Reflux, (GERD, Indigestion, Heartburn) and Crohn's

Sorry, Guys for not posting for a while - I've been really busy preparing for the new webinar and the new BUDI program, not to mention the 4 weeks of courses in California!
To make amends, I thought I'd post this reply I sent to a message I received today that I think you'd be interested in. Since this is a subject I get asked about all the time I thought it would be helpful to you if I shared it....
Q: I think that my system may be too acidic, wonder if that is a reason to have Crohns?
A: Do you mean you have GERD?

.....In my experience, the majority of Crohnies tend to have GERD / reflux / heartburn / indigestion. IN MY OPINION, based on my observations, GERD and the inflammation elsewhere in the GI system which are typical of Crohn's are both a likely result of the same mechanism, rather than one  causing the other. In the case study that I'll be using in the webinar that I'm releasing shortly, you'll see how I've taught one of my Crohnie students how to TURN HER HEARTBURN OFF :-) This is an example of how I TEACH people to USE THEIR SYMPTOMS to REDUCE THEIR SYMPTOMS
If you'd like to be notified of my webinar being announced you are welcome to send me your email address if you haven't already done so.
Here is a link to a very good resource on GERD. You'll read how it's a misnomer to talk about an excess of acid. It's more a case of having acid in the wrong place and can actually result from too little acid being produced to digest food properly:
