I've had mixed results with supplements and wanted to share my findings over the past year. I would like to hear what supplements you had success with, and what you would personally recommend.

I have literally spent thousands over the past year trying various natural herbs.

The following had positive effects:

- Heartburn Free
- Reflux Away
- inner health plus
- Calcium supplement
- chamomile tea

The following had minimal effect:
- mastic gum
- manuka honey
- colloidal silver
- DGL licorice
- Wei Tei 999
- Wei Te Ling
- siberian pine nut oil
- gastratax
- astritin

I have taken and some still do:

These worked:
Hearthburn free (expensive)
Acid Gone (expensive)
Throat Coat tea (I can't remember the brand name, got it from Whole Foods)

I still pop a Zantac maybe once or twice a week. I was on Nexium then switched to Prilosec for 1.5 yrs. Then I stopped. The past yr I started having issues again.

I quit drinking carbonated drinks, caffeine, stuff w.tomato or tomato sauce

Hope this helps!

Perksie, are you taking any PPI pills at the same time when you try those Natural herbs?

Also, I spent $25 dollar for some manuku honey, but it its not labeled UMF, so I dont know the strength of that one, but it seems the higher (20+) the UMF rating it is, the better the result, how long have you been taking it and which UMF rating is your manuku honey? I am preparing to buy some 25+ UMF manuku honey, so I would like to see what your opinion is before purchasing it.

I am taking Nexium 40g now, Aloe Vera juice and manuku honey at this time.

I think my gastritis or ucler is healing, I still experiencing minor nausea, sore throat tho, I also have pain behind my ear, might be from the acid, not sure. Is it common? I never had heartburn tho.
