I am new to this forum. I've been reading alot from it and there seems to be alot of help here. I've been struggling with what is seemingly gerd and lpn for a week now. I'm planning to follow the Dropping Acid cookbook diet plan. I was wondering about Manuka honey. I've read that it has healing qualities for gerd sufferers....but it's about a 3 on the p.h. scale. Anyone have any experience with it?

Hey Walrus,

Welcome to :) You will find a wealth of resources here as well as plenty of support from our members.

I do not have any experience with Manuka honey, but just wanted to extend some hospitality your way.

I hope you are feeling well, and welcome! :)

It might be a stretch to say that Manuka has "healing" properties. I've used it for years, and "soothing" is probably more like it. Since it is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, it does keep plaque from forming on teeth, and may also have some benefit for pylori control in the stomach.

I use about 1/4 teaspoonful at a time on my tongue, and let it melt like a lozenge.

manuka honey is famous for its extra strong antibacterial effect. i believe honey in general when properly handled is antibacterial as well but manuka is reportedly the best.

when i swallow a spoon full of honey it feels good at first ...seems to lubricate my sore throat, but long term , it has not given me a "cure" for the perpetual feelings of pain and swollen throat from LPR

Hey may i make a suggestion? go back to your comment, hit the edit (pencil) icon and enter a title way at the top field, to your comment..... something like "does manuka honey help LPR?"

i think maybe (who knows just guessing) this will get you more responses!

best of good luck to you

The Koufman diet has helped me feel better, but I really don't hear much support here for either the Manuka honey or aloe vera that Dr. Koufman supports on her site. I'm trying aloe vera tabs right now, until the bottle is gone, but haven't felt any change.

Didn't do anything for me.

When they talk about Manuka Honey's healing properties, I think it has more to do with healing a minor cut.

Use as a substitute for Neosporin. That is my 2 cents.

I use Manuka for gastritis, and it seems to help in the pain. Since I am still on Nexium, I can't tell whether Manuka helps with the GERD or not because I do not have GERD symptoms while on Nexium.
