Hi Everyone,
 
I haven't posted in a while.  Has anyone seen Bob Barton's website  and tried his instant cure for acid reflux.  He talks about part of the cure being an apple and regular grocery store products.  Many testimonials support his claim.  But you have to buy the report from him for $33.00. 
 
I'm wondering if any of you have tried it and does it work or is it a scam?

I have seen it in its entirety.  Dont buy it.  If you have mild heartburn and or reflux symptoms occasionally, then yes it may work for you.  But if you truely suffer from acid reflux disease...well then this is not going to work for you.  I honestly have not tried it, however I have tried most of the supplements and products he speaks about and they have not given me relief (yet anyway).  Sorry to burst your bubble, believe me, I wish it was true!

EEEk!! Are you kidding me?!?!!? I can't eat a flipping apple without reflux so I personally would run away from any "cure" that has an apple as part of it....

Lucy, thanks for your input. I am sorry you had to try it, but at least someone here has, and can tell exactly what they think of it.

Thanks!

Lucy007,
Out of desperation, I'm considering picking up the Bob Barton report but a am a little skeptical.  Figured I'd try it and use their 6 month money back guarantee.  Have you been on that "regime" for 6 months?  If so, did they honor their money back guarantee?
 
Had a endoscopically diagnosed grade B esophagits 2 years ago and have been on 2 x 40mg Nexium daily and haven't been better.  Purposely lost 20 pounds 6 months ago to get back to my target weight, eat quite bland and still have problems with the thoat, chest pain, etc.  Have another endoscopy later this month, at which point my doctor may suggest nissen, but I wanted to give something else a shot...really desperate here.
 
 
Thanks for your feedback,

I was rather naive, and purchased Bob Barton's report online. I followed his instructions completely for 3 months, and had no relief. I have had chronic GERD for 2 yrs and have daily symptons (throat burn) despite being on 40 mg. Nexium 2x/day. I have also tried 4 different PPI's prior to Nexium. I have had 2 endoscopies. Both showed chronic esophagitis, chronic gastritis and intestinal metaplasia. I was desparate to try a "natural" remedy, but unfortunately, it did not work for me.

I am considering having the Esophyx procedure done. Has anyone had this procedure or know someone that tried it?

During my years as a gerd suffer i can tell you there were many home cures that I tried to quell the fires but FEW worked.....here is on that did help.

Go to your health food stockist pickup some slippery elm powder, and mix 1 tsp slowly with a glass of water into a past that resembles a sticky slimmy yet viscous (not watery substance) paste and drink down slowly.

This is to coat the esophagus and tissues while soothing and protecting. This is not a cure but will sooth as I will always say to people diet is an important consideration reducing the symptoms of GERD, eating more alkaline foods, and staying away from processed foods, eating mostly steamed vegetables and grilled meats.

just google an alkaline diet and you will find a tonne of information.

Try not to drink with meals as it waters down the acid in your gut.

I've tried the Barton's approach with apples, and sometimes they appeared to help for whatever reason. It appears that some of us GERD sufferers sensitivity level of foods and drinks may vary, so an apple may or may not help. Many fruits actually bother me, but a Granny Smith apple is the only fruit that I'm able to tolerate most of the time.

Huggs to all....

Everyone is different and if you want to try it, then by all means try it.  However I think that you will be wasting your time and money.  I firmly believe there are other ways to deal with Gerd and get symptom relief, without meds, but if it was as simple as an online booklet...well, we wouldnt all be here.   
 
My hiatal hernia has healed itself.  My esophagus has healed itself wit the exception of some mild nonerosive esophagitis the doc says is "normal."  Yet, I still have symptoms regardless of diet.  I truely believe my body is addicted to nexium.  I tried stopping and it was pure misery, but when I reduced my dose to 20mg once/day I am fine.  Go figure.  I think mine is mostly stress related.  I feel best when I find time for exercise and meditation daily - NO MATTER WHAT I EAT.  So everyone is different.  What works for me probably wont work for many others.  If you do try the report and get symptom improvement please let us know.  Best of luck.

I just think this particular thing sounds too good to be true. I wouldn't want anyone to get their hopes up for an instant cure that doesn't exist.

If anyone has experience with this, be it good, or bad, by all means, share your stories!!!

Best Wishes to Everyone!

Hi there pescadoodle, and welcome to healingwell. I am glad you have found us, as this is a great place for information and support.

First of all, if you want other members to email you, please put your email address in your profile, that way they know how to contact you.

As for the Bob Barton's cure for GERD, I am pretty sure we all came to the conclusion that it is a bit of a scam, so I am not sure that you will get an answer to your question.

There are many things you can do to minimize GERD symptoms, and there is a great topic right here naming some.

Also, are you on any medications?

Please, continue to post, you can get so much information here!

Wishing you the best!

Hi there,

I came across this site whilst researching the claims made by Barton Publishing aka Bob Barton/Joe Barton. I have suffered with severe reflux for over 15yrs and would do anything for a cure so at first I was very interested in the claims made by Bob Barton's site. Alarms bells rang when I saw there was a charge for the cure that Bob so desperately wants us to have so I did some research. I found this address http://www.rebeccahartong.net/?p=564, go and have a read of the comments. Rebecca Hartong has obviously hit a nerve with the Bartons who, in my opinion, are making claims which are simply untrue. There are also people who have commented who have try the "remedy" suggested by Bob Barton which if you were unaware, consists of apple cider vinegar and honey. The general consensus is that if you suffer from mild, occasional heartburn the remedy may work. However for reflux sufferers such as myself the only known remedy is constant medication unfortunately.

I was about to buy the amazing Bob Barton cure when I decided to google it first. I am so glad I found your site. I have already been trying apple cider vinegar & honey from another web site & of course the really old stand by of baking soda in water (be careful if you have salt restrictions for
like blood pressure) I also have been taking oral aloe vera which helps, you can get at Walmart or GNC get the flavored kind, it helps you get it down.I had not heard about the Granny Smith Apple before I think I will try that. I am also on Nexium 40 mg. 2x daily.

Hello guys, I'm a newbie like just now hoping to find a confirmation on Bob Barton's claims. I'm really close to purchasing his report but I guess I have to think about it further now. How about Sherry Brescia's report  for GERD too? Has anyone encountered that or really tried it? That's another remedy online I'm looking at purchasing, Please advise me guys. God bless us all & more power to our moderator.

You may want to see if you have specific food triggers for reflux. I found mine with the help of an allergist who had me make a food journal and then do challenge testing.

I've previously posted my list on this forum
http://www.healingwell.com/community/default.aspx?m=1609739&f=45&p=1

All my food allergies/sensitivities/triggers are acquired, not anything I was born with. They all have one item in common - sulfites. I have a couple of "true" allergies, also acquired: sunflower seeds and Avelox.

Sherry only wants

Just a one time low investment of $49.97 $39.97.

Members beware of snakeoil sales people and be sure you are getting the real deal.  I have spent a fortune on weight loss miracle cures..........and guess what ! Your right they all came with the disclaimer that using them alone would not do the job.  This lady not only cures GERD but Crohn's Disease............if this were true no one would be sick. We also would not need this forum.

Just my 2 cents worth as each person must make their own choices.  

Hugs and know I have everyone's best interest at heart.

If people are looking for authors with good reputatuions regading reflux disease and digestive health, I would recommend the following. Martie Whittekin, her book-"Natural Alternatives To Nexium Mallox, Tagamet, Prilosec, and other acid blockers. she also has a weekly radio show and there are archived MP3 files which are available for free download. Also Michael T Murray's -"Stomach Ailments and Digestion," and Dr Elizabeth Lipski's "Digestive Wellness." Other author/experts too consider; Anne Louise Gittleman, Dr Russel Jaffe, and Dr Leo Galland.

Thought I had posted here, but will try again. Just the names of a few authors who I feel have standing and offer important information on acid reflux and general digestion. Martie Whittekin, Michael T Murray, Elizabeth Lipski, Anne Louise Gittelmen, Russel Jaffe, and Leo Galland
