This Could Be Obama’s Stomach Suffering From Acid Reflux.

By Arthur Piccolo

News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Fri. Dec.  12, 2014: No I do not mean the Torture Report which shows our government yet again is just as derelict as all those evil empires our pompous duplicitous public officials in The White House and Congress demonize. In fact,  it seems the other demagogues can learn some valuable (sic) lessons from the U.S.

I am not referring to that problem for Nobel Peace Prize Winner President Barack Obama and the fact he is being very restrained in condemning torture by the U.S. government; nor am I referring to the continuing unease about police abuse in the Black community that is exposing Barack Obama to how little he has done for Black America as President.

I’m here to talk about more serious problems for Barack Obama.

First, he finds out he suffers from Acid Reflux, then he finds out the Obamas’ personal chef is leaving. No, not The Official White House Chef, the Obama’s other chef – their personal chef.

Now do you understand why the Torture Report and the condition of most Black Americans is not at the top of his agenda this week?

Acid Reflux AND his personal chef is leaving!

At least I understand President Barack Obama’s priorities and why he will find solace here in Obama’s America. We understand him here week after week and the problems of being President you don’t have to deal with.

Let’s take a look at Acid Reflux – first also explore what no one else in the so called major media has. Might there be a direct relationship between the President’s Acid Reflux and his personal chef leaving?

First of all what is Acid Reflux?
This is what the ultimate source of wisdom Wikipedia says …

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), gastric reflux disease, acid reflux disease, or reflux (in babies and young children) is a chronic symptom of mucosal damage caused by stomach acid coming up from the stomach into the esophagus

GERD is usually caused by changes in the barrier between the stomach and the esophagus, including abnormal relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter, which normally holds the top of the stomach closed, impaired expulsion of gastric reflux from the esophagus, or a hiatal hernia. These changes may be permanent or temporary.

Treatment is typically via lifestyle changes and medications such as proton pump inhibitors, H2 receptor blockers or antacids with or without alginic acid. Surgery may be an option in those who do not improve. In the Western world between 10 and 20% of the population is affected.

That is a little too technical; let’s try another source – WebMD ..

At the entrance to your stomach is a valve, which is a ring of muscles, called the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). Normally, the LES closes as soon as food passes through it. If the LES doesn’t close all the way or if it opens too often, acid produced by your stomach can move up into your esophagus. This can cause symptoms such as a burning chest pain called heartburn. If acid reflux symptoms happen more than twice a week, you have acid reflux disease, also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

That is better. But what causes it?

One common cause of acid reflux disease is a stomach abnormality called a hiatal hernia. This occurs when the upper part of the stomach and LES move above the diaphragm, a muscle that separates your stomach from your chest. Normally, the diaphragm helps keep acid in our stomach. But if you have a hiatal hernia, acid can move up into your esophagus and cause symptoms of acid reflux disease.

OK what are the symptoms?

Common symptoms of acid reflux are:
Heartburn: a burning pain or discomfort that may move from your stomach to your abdomen or chest, or even up into your throat. Regurgitation: a sour or bitter-tasting acid backing up into your throat or mouth.

And there are few others but that is enough here for us.

What is the treatment or cure for President Obama?

One of the most effective ways to treat acid reflux disease is to avoid the foods and beverages that trigger symptoms. Here are other steps you can take: Eat smaller meals more frequently throughout the day; Quit smoking; Put blocks under the head of your bed to raise it at least 4 inches to 6 inches; Don’t eat at least 2 to 3 hours before lying down; Try sleeping in a chair for daytime naps.; Don’t wear tight clothes or tight belts.

Got that President Obama!

But here is the Real Deal President Obama is not like you or me, and he does not need ObamaCare. Last week, when he felt the symptoms of Acid Reflux he did not need to use Uber and go to some emergency room and wait hours to be told there is nothing wrong with him and his Bronze Obamacare is useless and that he will get a big bill he must pay or else.

All President Obama did was tell his staff to get his big limo and take him to Walter Reed National Medical Center where the finest specialists in Acid Reflux and everything else waited for his arrival.

They gave him the best tender loving care and sent him home to The White House. The total medical bill? Absolutely nothing! And Barack is better.

Which brings us to the far more troubling problem Barack and Michelle had to deal with this week. Their long time personal chef – again not The Official White House Chef – but their other personal chef Sam Kass – is leaving The White House and moving to New York City.

While I am not licensed to practice medicine and I am not offering a medical opinion to President Obama, I see a possible link between the President’s Acid Reflux that the doctors at Walter Reed may have missed!

As you read above certain foods and beverages can trigger Acid Reflux. I think Obama may be suffering from ANXIETY caused by his personal chef leaving him. And his brain’s response is to become agitated by the thought that he will have to eat strange food and drink beverages prepared by The Official White House Chef until he and Michelle can find a new personal chef. That his brain and his stomach are so inter-connected he is imagining his stomach becoming very upset resulting in the symptoms of Acid Reflux.

This is certainly not a proven or widely accepted theory but if you practice creative journalism as I do here the connection between the President’s Acid Reflux which he apparently never experienced before and the crisis of his personal chef leaving are more than obvious and are related.

So I hope I have made my point for those who naively think the biggest problems for President Obama this week are the Torture Report and the state of the African American community get real think again.

The big problems for Barack are Acid Reflux and his personal chef.

Thank God Obamacare is not a personal problem for him.

Two are more than enough for one week for President Obama.
