Hi Everyone,

I have been diagnosed with GERD. I am on prevacid - 30 mg and Align (probiotics) Lot of members on this forum have tried natural remedies like Aloe Vera . My doctor has told me try alternative remedies. After having prevacid, if I have heartburn... I normally take Maalox. I want to take Aloe Vera instead of Maalox for instant relief. I am 29 year old woman. Does Aloe Vera juice stop menstral cycle or change the cycle/ dates ?

Any women suffering with GERD who have tried out Aloe vera ? Did you use gel or juice or any other form ? Dosage?

Thanks a lot !

I hope everyone is on road towards recovery !!!

I don't think Aloe Vera has any effect on menstruation or female hormones. It's a popular one to try for GERD issues and very worth a go. I have to say it didn't help me but some people find it useful. I'm sad to say I haven't found any single thing, medical or natural, that gives me instant relief, but maybe that's just me. I do use DGL (dyglycerinized licorice) which does help some, and am trying ginger capsules. . . Though got a feeling that isn't helping. Some people find relief with some radical dietary changes like going vegan or low carb - Sunbeam's thread on the Kaufman diet is worth a read for sure.

Thanks... I will try DGL. I am vegan and my symptoms are manageable. My throat has not healed and that does drive me crazy. I use honey throat drops and lozenges. I am prone to cavities so trying to reduce them.
