Hi all, Just thought I'd share what I find to be a real help with my reflux. Ginger tea in the morning with toast ( gluten free) and manuka honey is like a miracle !!! I've had it for the past few weeks and wasn't sure whether it was doing me any good, so I stopped it for a few days and could feel the difference. I've added a link so you can have a little read. It works for me !!!

Edit: Link removed as site is selling it's product.

Hi there, I do have the honey on the bread/ toast of a morning, and I have a couple of teaspoons before bed. I believe it has helped me a lot.The only problem is, it's really expensive £17.50 for 500g but truly worth it.

I don't know if you've tried apple cider vinegar? I've just ordered myself some and it's supposed to be a miracle for reflux. It's worth a try. Good luck. x

Hi Lozzy,

just be careful with ACV its an ACID. for me suffering with throat reflux, anything acid causes SEVERE Symptom flareups in my throat and esophagus.

no more diet pepsi for me!


i tend to stay in the bannas and watermelon side of the PH range.

Thanks for the advice, I haven't actually started taking it yet. I ordered it last week so awaiting it's arrival. kinda makes me wonder whether I should have bought it ??? I've read that it's supposed to be really good for oesophageal reflux ( which I have) I just don't wanna make it worse. I am very new to this so I'm trying everything that I read is good for reflux, like the manuka honey .......Now that stuff is great turn I'll try the ACV but only diluted in water, I'm gonna be careful . Thanks x

I try everything too. I have read lots of positive stuff about ACV but it lit the fire on my gastritis. I don't regret giving it a go tho. Maybe I'll try the honey next. I'm currently trying coconut milk and lecithin!!

ACV works wonders for me. I used to have 2 tablespoons in a glass of water before meals. Remember to dilute in water! Actually, I should probably get back to taking ACV once my next flare up starts.

Well the ACV can help if your low on stomach acid or have sore throats but often what people recommend is to try to heal your esophageus somewhat before taking acid or you can always try HCL.

or buy the ACV pills so the acid wont burn you or the HCL pills...

I tried ACV once and it helped but trying to keep it to a minimal until i really heal a little more.

Dilluting it in water is the best way

I have had Gerd for a year now, and tried the Manuka honey after a flight medical doctor suggested it. I am now completely off Nexium.

The key to Manuka honey is a rating called the "UMF factor". Avoid anything that says Manuka that does not have this rating. There was a UK government statistic I saw that said more fake Manuka is sold every year than has ever been produced in history.

The brand I am using right now is "comvita", however, I have an order in for a bulk batch of honey from ebay which is made by "Mossops".

Dr suggested a dosage of UMF 15 or higher three times a day (anything over UMF 18 means it has undergone a man made process to concentrate the active ingredients)

I have had good results with only UMF 10+ honey. Although, to be fair, I probably take it 5-6 times a day

Hope that helps.

If anyone knows of other, non pharma GERD treatments please let me know. I suffered badly from the nexium and Gaviscon side effects
