My focus for this channel is vlogging, travel, healthy lifestyle (for now I am on a "Acid watcher" diet, review videos and other random vlog related videos.
There might be occasional food content in my new videos but the theme of this Channel is now a vlogging and lifestyle channel.
💕❤️Why I Had To Change❤️💕
(Effective as of 2018)
I went from a General mukbang with some junk food to now a very specific dietary lifestyle. Specifically I now must follow the Acid Watcher Diet. I was diagnosed with LPR (And I believe I also might have Bile Reflux but that has not been confirmed) and despite medication my symptoms never improved. I will not discuss about LPR in detail on my channel except for in this description box and in a unlisted video. But you will see me mention certain foods and recipes follow the Acid Watcher lifestyle. (YouTube’s bot appears to think I’m talking about something controversial since I put in medical disclaimers. I still contend I am not a doctor and always speak with a healthcare professional about your health concerns. My views should not replace a doctor’s advice.)
I know I will get a lot of comments from people telling me to take Apple cider vinegar. Long story short, I’ve tried that and it made things worse. I later learned that heart burn and LPR are NOT the same even though they sound similar. LPR is often called reflux of the throat. Heartburn is reflux that aggravates the stomach. Throat burn and phlegming are my main symptoms and this is caused by pepsin activation in the throat. The esophagus does not have the same protection as the stomach. So for the sake of my health I am being strict with what goes down my throat. Anything below ph of 5 is a sure fire way to activate pepsin in the esophagus which can cause damage. Apple cider vinegar drinks though often healthy, is still below a ph of 5 and will cause pepsin activation in the throat. Causing cell wall damage which in long term cases will lead to Barett’s Esophagus or in worse case scenario esophageal cancer. (I am hoping if I do heal I will be able to broaden my food list to include things that are gut healthy like fermented foods but for now I have to take capsule probiotics because fermented food often has a lower ph. If I do get past the healing phase you may see some foods like yogurt again and some other foods in the ph 4 range but I will have to keep an eye out for potential triggers so it may not be a regular thing.)
📌This channel therefore will now be a vlog channel and food content will reflect the dietary lifestyle listed in both Dr Koufman’s Dropping Acid Diet and Dr Aviv’s Acid Watcher Diet. The two book have the same root concept. Limiting and controlling pepsin activation in the throat to help the esophagus heal. However the two book have minor differences. For an example Dr Koufman allows small amounts of tamari and sugar. Whereas Dr Aviv discourages the use in healing phase. I combine the concepts from both books. If you are interested in learning more. Please support the doctors/authors and purchase their books or check them out at your local library to learn more. I am not 100% healed but both books are so far the only dietary lifestyle that has helped me control my LPR symptoms.
Thanks for the support! Love you all! Muah
