Sorry - I didn't detail it. Actually, DGL Licorice (chewable) from nature's life.
If the link doesn't work. Go to www.amazon.com
and search for --> DGL Licorice
. The best branch is Nature's Life - this one is not so bitter like other DGL. It give you a coffee taste. DGL is natural and it is almost equal to the strengh of tagament. DGL is good for stomach. Read more when you search for it on amazon and other site.
If you check with your dr, and if you sphincter is normal, you can slowly wean off the med.
Also, in the process that you are doing quite well without pain or reflux, you can add
But you have to stop the reflux from keep washing up your esophagus. Manuka honey will definately a good helper. Click link above and read more about the good property of manuka...
However, if one keep getting reflux non-stop, than the manuka honey will not work in this case!
If you ever try to wean off the PPI med, be sure to take DGL along with it - but different hours.
It is safe and you can take DGL every day. You can also take another one along with DGL. It is called Mastic Gum 500 from Jorrow.
In the long run, and once you are able to get off of the PPI completly, you can continue to take DGL and mastic gum for a long while without any issue since they are nature thing. But one you feel better and no more reflux, etc., you can slowly wean off those nature one by one... And if you feel better, than you are home_free :)
When you take this natural things, it help your stomach and calm your stomach so that your stomach do not pump out so much acid that can hurt you. In otherwords, if you wean of the PPI slowly over time, it give your stomach a chance to understand that it need to come back to normal.
Stoping PPI cold turkey - This is called Acid rebound - it can be very dangerous too, and you can be in a lot of pain. etc.
