I just wanted to post something I has helped me in hopes that it may help some of you with esophagitis. Brief history: I developed GERD suddenly (as in overnight) on April 29th of this year. I took Prilosec for 7 weeks, which helped while I was on it. I quit cold turkey and my symptoms returned though not as severe and manifested themselves as LPR (laryngopharyngeal reflux w/ a little bit of traditional heartburn as well). I tried the cowboy approach and did no meds for 3 months. During this time, my symptoms would wax and wane. They would be present for 24 hours a day for 2 straight weeks only to disappear without a trace for 2 weeks at a time. I had a major flare in June and got an endoscopy which showed "Grade A esophagitis". I started taking Apex Energetics Repair Vite K60 at the advice of my friend and had a scope 4 weeks later which showed a "normal esophagus" and the gastro doc said it had healed. I also noticed the burn in my throat was much less severe when it occurred. It is a powder with ingredients lice DGL, marshmallow root, aloe vera extract, MSM, etc. and you take it 1-3 times per day. You can order it online or get it in some health food stores.
Just wanted to put this out there.
Take care everyone :)
