The first time I started to have IBS/GERD troubles was when I switched to a more stressful career. At this time, I also became vegan. I would have sulfur smelling burps and vomit at night after eating too much before going to sleep. It was awful.. Now I just can't lay down after eating for a few hours, which puts quite a limit on my sex life. Luckily, my lover "really" loves me and is ever-so-patient. My wedge pillow is an integral part of the head of my bed for nights when things aren't going down well for whatever reason. It keeps me from having acid reflux and barfing anyhow, but the stomach upset will still have its course.Yoga also has helped me, doing lots of tensing & relaxing and breathing into my abdomen. Starting the day with a shoulder stand feels good, because it is the only time in the day that I can do that (builds up muscles around esophagus perhaps) if my stomach is emptying properly. I feel as though this is definitely a First World dilemna, or at least a 21st century dilemna-- due to highly processed foods, fast-paced lifestyles, and being in an overall SPASTIC society. Are there any traces to these sorts of troubles in hunter-gatherer tribes? (just out of curiosity)Thanks, everybody!
