HI, I'm new to this board, but not to the forums. My husband has a disease so I"m on that board a lot. However, I do have gerd (at least I think I still do, it goes away...)
I take a tums sometimes to help ease the heartburn. My dr. prescribed me on protonix - loved it- but when I wanted a refill - she said "take prilosec otc for 2 weeks & if it persists, see a gastro" - I didn't want to so I took the prilosec for a while - and then tums when needed.

Bread sometimes helps w/ the burning - but it has to be soft or else it feels like it gets "stuck" in the chest.

Try sour kraut. A month ago I stumbled on a book on vegetables. In one of the chapters I read about sour kraut ( fermented cabbage ) and its beneficial effects on intestines. I ate one 1liter jar of it per day before meals for 10 days. I don't want to say that this therapy made away with my problems completely but one thing is sure: I don't have burning throat and bloating, belching and burning in my stomach subsided considerably. Make your sour kraut yourself from organic cabbages in the following way: 1. chop your cabbages 2. put the mass you obtain in a large enameled container in a few layers adding some salt to each layer and pressing until the chunks of cabbage give out juice (you should use 1/10 kg of salt for a 12 liter container). 3. Put some wooden plate and weight on top so the stuff stays compressed. 4. Cover with some mesh made of cotton and leave to ferment for about 2 weeks in a worm ( 10-18 degrees Celsius) place where the stink of gases won't bother you. After 2 weeks your sour kraut is ready. Take off the mould that often occurs on the surface. Don't get rid of the juice. Drink it with your sour kraut. This recipe worked for me. There is another one on If you live in Chicago go to a Polish deli and ask them about sour kraut made with traditional methods. They should have it in barrels with a lot of juice. I don't know what is the value of sour kraut available in food chainstores ( I did't go for it because of additives used in mass produced food) After drinking the juice or eating a lot of sour kraut don't go away from home as it is almost sure you'll get short lasting diarrhea (start the teraphy on the weekend). Try the above recipe. It won't hurt you. Stop eating foods containing sugar. Give up coffee, coke and fatty foods for a while. Good luck.
