Cure Esophagitis with The Paleo Diet

Dr. Cordain,

It cured my esophagitis, which I had for 6 months straight, in less than three weeks. It seemed miraculous. I can even eat citrus and marinara sauce and drink coffee, tea, and wine again with absolutely no problems whatsoever. I discovered Paleo through Chris Kresser's website when researching my health problems online.

I had been a vegetarian since the age of 10 and ate at least 80% grains, dairy and legumes since then. I'm now 29 and until last month I couldn't understand why at my age I kept developing illnesses (colitis, esophagitis, and IBS, plus I was sleeping 10 hours at a time and still feeling tired.) I thought that perhaps I was doomed due to bad genes because these things run in my family on both sides (family members with Barrett's Esophagus, Colostomy bags, Acid Reflux), but now I'm already all better! I'm totally healthy, full of energy, and as an added bonus, I lost a few pounds and am as skinny as I was as a teen. It happened so fast too! I can hardly believe it.

Thank you very much! I'm so happy to be off of medicine and symptom free! It is a huge relief.
