My doctor said peppermint oil could be good for me but the I was reading that it bothers people reflux (I have a hietal hernia).
Anyone try levsin with success?
Also, which aloe vera works for people, I don't get how you could use the gel? Don't you have to drink it for it to work on your intestines? I looked at some of the old posts but didn't find anything that useful. Thanks.
