I had an endoscopy done and was diagnosed with following as a result: Hiatus hernia, erosiones mucosae b duodeni. I was prescribed pantoprazol for a month. Since pantoprazol is an acid blocker (I think from the description, it controls the enzyme which is responsible for acid production) I am guessing that this is to help with the erosion caused by too much acid. I was reading the following http://www.thecandidadiet.com/ph-levels-candida.htm and towards the end of it it states to stay away from acid blockers. Now, I need to heal that erosion in my stomach as it is really bugging me and it could turn into an ulcer if I don’t deal with it. Probably all that lemon water doesn’t help situation also. I did notice that I have problem with it so I try to drink it in the middle of my meal where there is food in the stomach.
I need an opinion of knowledgeable people here on the forum on how is this going to affect me?
What can I do to minimize the setback if any?
Thanks in advance for your help!

Do you experience heartburn?April 9, 2012 at 7:17 am #78365
Do you experience heartburn?
Yes, heartburn, pain in the stomach, even pain in my chest which I believe is caused by the stomach, and often I think nausea is caused by the acid not die-off or candida. I feel the burning from the stomach and often raising up to my throat. This is why I do believe that erosion is caused by excess acid, or perhaps hernia contributes to acid being pushed back or something. I was fine until I started eating large meal portions lots of salads and lemon water (remember I was complaining about it bothering me, I often feel the pinching pain in my stomach after having it).
Do you have any advice for me Able? I feel that I must take it but also that it will set me back in my treatment. I was finally making small steps towards healing and kind of see the light at the end of the tunnel 🙂
