I have suffered from acid reflux for several years. I have also had severe chest pain and been admitted to hospital on three occasions. I have taken all kinds of antacids which have sometimes made me worse. Lately my symptoms became very much worse with burning throat and chest pain, stomach cramps. I'll make this short and just say that overthe past 3/4 weeks I have been cleansing my body, eating properly, taking probiotics and l'gluthamine. I take juiced ginger first thing in the morning and feel that this has helped enormously. I am not yet entirely symptom free as because of the relief I have gone off the regime a bit, but I am certaily ten times better! I am going to be quite strict over the next month and see what happens. I feel it will certainly be worth it.
This may seem a daft question but how do you juice ginger??
I was reading recently not to count on the H Pylori being eradicated as the docs tell you, and that you should continue to eat certain foods/take natural stuff to keep it at bay. Can't tell you much more as I have not had time to read all the info I have been looking into recently but it made some sense to me so going to get back to that again.
I've gone off my good living these past few days again and was feeling really bad. Tomorrow I will start to be really good again - I liked the feeling the other week of 'feeling well' though it did scare me a bit as not used to it!
Hope you are feeling better yourself. And Nancee who started this thread.
