Imagine waking up one day with no voice. You try to talk, but all that comes out is a croak. It hurts to even try.

You swallow and it feels like you’re swallowing razor blades.

OK, now imagine living like that for 3 years.

My life was hell when I had acid reflux.

Every single night before bed I experienced regurgitation. I slept upright in a chair. Communication was a burden. The lack thereof—depressing. Eventually, I dwindled down to 127 lbs.

*Me at about 127 lbs. Does the smile make it better or just creepy?

The doctors I saw told me there was no cure for GERD. I would have to take acid-suppressing drugs for the rest of my life or get my stomach “wrapped.”

Well, turns out they were all wrong because 4 years later, I recovered completely and naturally from acid reflux. Today, I can speak, sing, and shout to my heart’s content with no issues at all.

I can also eat foods I couldn’t eat before, like garlic, onions, and oranges with no reflux whatsoever.

I don’t take PPIs, and I did not get surgery.

How’d I do it?

Long story short—a plant-based diet. If you want to learn more about how I healed, get my free ebook, “Reflux Free” over here.


I believe GERD is a lifestyle disease because that is what I experienced and that is what the research actually says. There’s a reason why acid reflux overlaps with all the major, chronic Western diseases like cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, and MORE. Same root cause.

For some reason this isn’t well known to the general public, so that’s why I created Gerdwise. Stick around as my team and I highlight the scientific evidence for natural healing so you can make informed decisions about your health.

Don’t give up and don’t lose hope!

To Your Health,

Hello! I’m Stu Leo, and from 2012 to 2017, I suffered from debilitating acid reflux. I was told I’d have to take meds for the rest of my life or get surgery. In the end, that prognosis was entirely wrong because I did neither and remain completely and naturally reflux-free today. I started Gerdwise to make the evidence for natural healing easy to find, easy to access, and easy to understand. Stick around for the latest on GERD to uplevel your health.
