yeah  first got GERD around Christmas, 2004. My wife had some Nexium around and I starting taking this. It seemed to work, but then the GERD came back. Tried Tums. Again, seemed to work. Changed diet (alkaline foods, removed coffee, some alcohol, etc.) Again, seemed to work. Since, I was a person who buys health foods, there was an item that I would eat on and off that was completely healing my GERD for awhile. Then I would run out and the GERD would return. That food was yogurt ! In fact it was goat yogurt (Redwood Farms).  Any yogurt might not work. It must have beneficial bacteria (L. Acidopholus) and should be low in sugar. Just go to a health food store. It works immediately.
You can also take Acidopholus tablets (must be refrigerated!).

Oh wow, I know Redwood Farms dairy. I have a commercial dairy goat herd. I was diagnosed with erythematous gastropathy in April ...along with a Hiatus hernia. I had to have an upper GI endoscopy because of iron defieciency anemia. My doctor put me on Protonix( a PPI) to help offset effects of iron pills. I recently had my physical in which she was talking to me about GERD. I don't have GERD. I've been eating 8 ounces of yogurt with 2 T of ground flaxseed every morning for breakfast.

Inder - I do not take Nexium. I was taking it when symptoms were present before I was eating yogurt. Acidophilus or good yogurt completely heals GERD. I eat anything I want. If I stop the yogurt, the GERD returns in 3 days everytime.

Harper - it is in No. Calif. But, any good health food yogurt will do. You need acidophilus in some form or other.

Hey guys, Milk for me causes worsening of the GERD symptoms, so whatch out, maybe use other types of yogurt if you cant digest milk well, and stay away from any hard to digest foods as these cause your stomach to make more acids. what I have found to help the most has been Chia seeds, they helped me turn the page from managing GERD to feeling great. I have also taken on eating slow, more fruits and veggies, less wheat and breads, eating on time and eating homemade meals. I am currently trying probiotics to see how they help me with putting on weight. I also highly recommend papaya and/ or a little pineaple like a small bite with each meal no more if you are having an attack since pineaple is a little acidic, but both of these fruits are digestive and help the healing process. strawberries are well taken too along with the chicken and rice diet you first start on when you first get diagnosed. GOOD LUCK!
