    Hi All,

    I thought I'd post my success story here.

    I was diagnosed with GERD earlier this year after having all the symptoms, the worst of which was tightness in my chest, worse in the evenings. Initially we thought I may have COVID-19 as it was near the beginning of the pandemic.

    I was put on PPI's and restricted what I ate. Basically everything I enjoyed eating had to go. I went back to basics. As a result, I was soo pre-occupied with my symptoms I ended up losing a fair bit of weight, family and friends were concerned about me.

    I decided to see if there was another way to look at this, that perhaps it was my body trying to tell me something. On and off for years I had experienced TMS related issues, here's just a few of the more troubling ones that took me a while to overcome:

    - Back pain - Multiple chiropractors and treatments tried, no joy. Worked on it as a TMS symptom and it went away very quickly.

    - Mole pain - I convinced myself it was cancerous, and I started getting pain, got it checked, it wasn't, pain instantly went.

    - Chronic Eye Strain - Probably the most tricky one to get rid of. I was convinced it wasn't TMS related, saw multiple specialists, never got answers, in the end I worked on it as another TMS symptom and worked through the TMS recovery program I got some relief, teamed with the Bates method.

    - IBS/Bloating

    - Chest Pain (GERD)

    I'm recovered from this now. Off the tablets. I treated it as a TMS symptom and tried to take away any feelings of fear around the different types of food I'm eating. Working hard to send myself messages of safety and simply observing the sensations that arose in my body without fear but with curiosity. I'm now back eating whatever I want with no issues.

    A good place to get started is here:


    Alan Gordon also has a new podcast called, 'Tell me about your pain' and a facebook community who are all very helpful, link to the podcast here:

    This includes LPR since LPR and GERD are two different things

    Hi BagelSchnitzel,

    Thanks for posting your success story, with suggestions and links. It is extremely helpful for others.

    Like so many others, you have connected and treated many symptoms, seeing them as an outgrowth of the same inner, invisible process.

    Congratulations on your inner work, and good luck in continuing your process. The more success we have, the greater safety we feel and I think the process gets easier for any new symptoms.

    I'll put this link here which you might like to read.

    Karim, so you are telling me in the span of a few business days you've had working sessions with Alan Gordan, David Clarke and Howard Schubiner. Sorry bro but I'm not buying it. Kira on this forum has actually had working sessions with Schubiner and he told her 100% her digestive LPR systems were TMS. These success story threads (mine included) are meant to bring hope to folks to see that people can heal but your short, ungrateful and negative comments are not adding any value to yourself or others.

    I just asked them if lpr is tms and that’s what each one of them answered

    Nop my comments are being objective. I’m quoting what they said so they are the negative ones, those are not my words. Don’t blame me I have proof of evidence. If you don’t believe me then you are calling me a liar. In that case am sorry I will post their email to see who is lying

    I am just saying, it’s a loose loose situation, there is no need for me to invent such thing, they are not so sure about calling lpr tms or not, that means they are not 100% sure like you claim,

    I don't see where the OP mentioned anything about LPR, but if that's what the OP healed from, then that's great news.

    You said, "This includes LPR since LPR and GERD are two different things"----where did BagelSchnitzel say anything about LPR though? I'm genuinely confused by your comments on this thread.

    Agreed, he appears to have hijacked my success story to spread his own negative agenda. Shame really, we are supposed to be supporting each other with positivity.

    According to your profile, you don't have LPR anymore. Isn't that what you needed help with a few weeks ago? Maybe you should post your own success story.
