I haven't been back on this site in quite a while but just thought I would help some of you who really want to do the work to heal yourselves.  Just do a search in the SEARCH SITE....put in my name DANIE and you will get all the information I posted more than 2 years ago.  I know what you are going thru but the idifference with me was that I was not going to live that way and I would have done anything to get better.  I gave up everything (luckily I have no addictions), namely all carbs, sugar etc.  You will see what I did since I made sure I posted everything in great detail.
 
I went on a totally alkaline diet (careful about alkaline for GERD problems though - lemons or apple cider vinegar are very alkaline in the stomach but not good while you are healing your esophagus - they are very acid going down and can cause more pain/damage).
Check on my listinigs of alkaline foods - basically you become an almost total vegetarian.
I used TOFU - QUINOA - MILLET as my PROTEIN along with the correct alkaline vegetables. 
WATERMELON is the most alkaline fruit - DATES are great too and give you the sweetness you might miss from desserts.
You can get creative with Quinoa, make it a dessert with dates or eat it with alkaline vegetables and tofu for a meal.
You can't go out to eat and eat alkaline....there is no way....you have to cure yourself at home and it takes work!!!!!!
 
1)  You will also read on my posts that you need to sleep on your LEFT SIDE....TRAIN YOURSELVES!!!!!!!!!!!
When you sleep on your left side the acid in your stomach cannot come up into your esophagus.
 
Sleep with your torso elevated....not just your head....I used a WEDGE PILLOW.
 
2)  One of the most important things - I LEARNED EVERYTHING I TRIED FROM RESEARCHING THIS SITE -
is the use of DGL LICORICE (you can get it in health food stores or order on line).   The part of the licorice that causes HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE HAS BEEN TAKEN OUT....there is no problem with that. 
You dissolve one tablet in your mouth about 20 min. before you eat anything -
You don't drink anything with your meal.
You can drink a little water afterwards.....the purpose is to COAT YOUR ESOPHAGUS so the food can pass thru without doing more harm to it.
If you complain that you don't like licorice....sorry, I would rather feel better than to ***** and moan about a natural supplement that WILL HEAL YOU....I PROMISE.
 
I HEALED MYSELF IN JUST 2 MONTHS.....fine ever since....I can eat anything I want.
 
THE REASON I GOT GERD WAS TAKING ADVIL FOR INJURING MY RIB WHEN I FELL.
 
REMEMBER, IF YOU HAVE TO TAKE ANY PAIN KILLERS - EVEN ASPIRIN - DO NOT LIE DOWN FOR AT LEAST 1/2 HR. 
 
 
Again, I know what you are going thru....I had gone for every test possible since my symptoms were not those of GERD....they were NAUSEA AND DIZZINESS.
The last test was an endoscopy which diagnosed GERD and then I knew I had to take charge myself!!!
 
I have since told my story to anyone that will listen and have helped people off the horrible drugs they were on like Nexium....one person was on it for 11 years!!!!!  Eating more alkaline and never near bedtime and using DGL licorice....he healed himself.  Three months later he was thrilled to tell me that he stopped the Nexium and was totally free of pain!!
 
Please help yourselves....you can do it!!!!!

Hi Lyn and Kitt,

I will add to my initial posting that you should not try anything new without your doctor's approval!!!

Having said that, I can also say that my doctors knew nothing about DGL licorice! I researched it and learned about it myself. I was never given any information from an MD about it. All they said was "try whatever you want".

My gastroenterologist did say to me that he didn't want me on any GERD prescription drugs for any length of time....I quote "you don't want to take these meds for more than 6 months"!!!

I have told my doctors all about DGL licorice and what it did for me. You can also check back to the testimonials of other people that were helped after my initial postings.

My primary physician was so surprised at the incredible results I had that he put it on his "drug list" to recommend to his patients instead of the regular meds prescribed for GERD. By the way, these are NYC physicians!

I read all the postings of people on this board who are in such pain and never get anywhere......it's a big runaround with doctors. No one has answers other than to put you on a new drug or suggest different procedures.
I have never had a doctor tell me to go on an alkaline diet....no one ever mentioned acid foods to me.

I feel that my postings can really help people....that is my goal in taking the time to still post.

I don't think that my suggesting DGL Licorice, which is classified as a supplement by the way, would harm anyone.
I also don't think my suggestion of people sleeping on the left side would harm anyone. It will actually help in the long run.
Wishing everyone good health.....the good health I now enjoy.
Remember, I only had GERD for a couple of months.....I can't even imagine having it for years!

I really don't appreciate it when people write things like this (above).  Don't you think people have tried everything they possibley can to get healed of this illness?  My gerd is caused by gastroparesis and a motility disorder.  There is no cure for that.  I eat things with zero carbs and I still get horrible reflux.  Not everyone is the same.  This illness can have diff causes and effects.  I'm glad it worked for you, but if you only had reflux for a couple of months, and some of us have had it for years, like me , how can u know what we go through?  I know you are only trying to help, but not everyone is the same.

Gabby,

I validate your feelings and as posted by many, each person is different. 

I have communicated several times to Danie that each person is different and that is my continued message to the members.

I advocate for the patient working together with their physicians and the patient then chooses the plan of care they feel comfortable with.

On HealingWell we strive to seek a balance between alternative and traditional approaches. I feel strongly, both approaches have value for anyone seeking healing. However the individual needs to make there own decisions.

Any questions or comments please feel free to email me.

Gentle Hugs

Kitt

Gabby123,

Sorry for offending you....I'm only trying to help. I do know that I searched and searched for an answer myself and the ony time anything worked for me was ONE SIMPLE posting on this board two years ago 'Try an alkaline diet".
I jumped on that one opening and it helped me heal myself.
I wish you well and sorry if my postings annoyed you and the moderators.

Hi Danie,

Interesting tips. Though your mentioning of needing to sleep on the left hand side; I find that's worse for me, and sleeping lying on my right instantly alleviates any problems.

Is this what you meant, maybe?
