I ask because I when I last went to my GI and had an endoscopy done, I tested positive for H Pylori and he mentioned that the GERD I have was causing significant damage to my esophagus. I have no qualms with approaching this from a psychosomatic perspective (would actually rather that) but, what about H Pylori potentially causing ulcers and maybe even stomach cancer? And the damage the GERD is doing? The real question I have here is: my friend who is a Functions Wellness Practitioner wants me to have a comprehensive stool test done which will let me know if I have Candida or even SIBO which could be contributing to all of this or at a minimum, exacerbating it. Im a little worried that if he tells me I have a number of problems, that I am going to get caught up in the whole fight....which if it is all TMS, is exactly not what I need to be doing-engaging it. Would love to hear everyone's thoughts on this.
