I was reading about the Manuka honey on Dr. Jamie Koufman's blog. I googled Manuka honey and a lot of results came back with Manuka and relief in acid reflux. Have you tried Manuka honey?

Yes, it's quite soothing but I think any honey would have that effect. The "Heartburn No More" author also strongly recommends honey. I have to say it gave me no symptom relief at all and after a couple of weeks the taste started to turn my stomach . . . I must try and finish the second pot, as it's meant to have other health benefits, but as for GERD, nothing doing for me sadly!!

Belljar,

I am going to try it anyway. Everyone is different, so it might not hurt in trying.

Manuka honey has helped me. It soothes my esophagus, coats it, forming a barrier of protection from acid.

A study came out that found honey is more effective than cough syrups for easing a cough. But for actually treating acid reflux, I don't know.

Dr. Koufman also encourages use of aloe vera for acid refulx. I am trying that to see if it will make my tender stomach feel better. I am using gel caps, some say the juice is kind of yucky.

Your right it is worth a try and some use it and others don't.
 
When my kids were young and had bad seasonal allergies their Dr. recommended I give them honey from bees raised in our state.  So I did and at the time I felt it helped with allergies.
 
If you try it good luck and let us know what you think.
 
Kindly,

WJF,

How do you take the honey? Do you put it in a liquid, such as tea, or do you take the raw honey with something?

I read that you should take it with a small piece of bread to deliver it to the LES, rather than smearing it down your gullet. I tried that and I've tried just swallowing a spoonful - it has no impact on my reflux symptoms either way, even though it is quite pleasant on a sore throat.
