I suffered with GERD for 2 1/2 years. I tried everything. It was so bad, I can't even tell you. I tried cutting so many things out of my diet. EXCEPT bottled water. I came across a website about bottled water after getting a message from the Holy Spirit that it was the water that was my problem but I didn't understand. Bottled water is CHLORINATED WATER (read "poison"). The bottles they are in are also chlorinated. I stopped drinking bottled water and after 2 1/2 years of suffering, I recovered within 2 days. I have been GERD-free ever since. Don't take my word for it, try it yourself! If your water IS chlorinated, get a water filter that filters out chlorine. Chlorine is a poison that not everyone can tolerate. I am finally healthy again and I thank GOD for his glorious mercy! Thank you God! Thank you Jesus! Thank you Holy Spirit! Amen! View Thread
I have well water, so I don't drink it either. I do use if for cooking though, since I boil that. I find that drinking water in general is a problem for me. I never used to even drink water until the big advertising push for the healthiness of drinking water, LOTS of water, came along. That's when my problems began (I realize in retrospect). I only drink Sierra Mist right now. It doesn't give me any problems. I think until everything is totally healed, some things are still problematic. For instance, I can't tolerate dairy (diahrrea within an hour). But I know that, soon, after being off the chlorinated water long enough, that will change too. I do hope this helps some. I can only tell you that it is so nice to feel like I'm 14 again (at 49!). I can finally eat spaghetti and chocolate again, just to name a few favorites I had to give up during that 2 1/2 year torture period. Best Wishes! View Thread
