Hi, I have suffered “water brash” for nearly a year now. It’s been a constant battle trying to cure it. I’ve tried vitamin D, naturopathic treatments and Ayurvedic therapies; none of which provided relief long term. After all this it seems I’ve accidentally cured my water brash for which I am so grateful.
If your reflux / water brash is worse whilst menstruating it may be because you are losing blood and iron stores.
I’m due for a procedure soon and had bloods taken which showed severe iron deficiency anaemia (IDA). On reflection I’ve been borderline anaemic for years but never would of made the link. I’d have thought that would be the job of the many doctors I saw; specially given a long documented history of menorrhagia and endometriosis. Doctors don’t want to cure us, they just want to keep giving us pharmaceuticals. If they cure us they lose money.
So I have been very lethargic, sometimes breathless and pale for a number of years but put it down to stress and needing to get fit. I started on Floradix Florvital https://www.floradix.com.au/product/floradix-yeast-gluten-free-herbal-liquid-iron-extract/ almost a week ago and to my surprise the water brash has decreased a bit each day. Yesterday it was almost non-existent.
So, if you’ve been on PPI’s for a long time then I suggest you get tested for IDA. Think about
it! If our blood isn’t getting oxygenated it can’t produce adequate enzymes, including digestive ones and it manifests as hypersalivation.. I can’t believe this nightmare may be over. I’ll be getting an iron infusion when I go for my procedure in three weeks. I keep you updated as to whether this nightmare has actually ended. Crossing fingers and toes!
