Acidity in the Body

Acidity in the Body

I just heard on a documentary that I'm watching again (HEAL) that acidity in the body (through the foods we eat, etc.) contributes to pain/inflammation in the body, which includes IBS. I was wondering if anyone has tried an alkaline diet or simply reducing acidic foods & if so, what was your experience? Thanks!

In my reading, I came across something referred to as wild lettuce & how it can help with pain & it doesn't interfere with the digestive system. Anyone tried this? Thanks!

Does anyone experience little "bursts" in their stomach?

Does anyone experience little "bursts" in their stomach?

It's kind of hard to explain, but throughout the day I'll get these little "bursts" on the right side of my abdomen that sound like little farts, for lack of better words, coming from inside my abdomen. It's not like a regular rumbly tummy, but like little gurgly pop sounds and feels like shifting going on. My GI is kind of tired of me and says I'm just stressed from all my jobs. My PCD thinks it's trapped gas, but I'm not sure. She doesn't want to do any… read more
