I am looking for any advice. I have been suffering with gerd for about 9 months now and am struggling to control my symptoms, I have either stomach pain, chest pain or the throat pain but only 1 at a time. I am no medications and have almost completely given up on the doctors but am due to see a consultant soon. I don't expect anything from this consultant but another round of trying the ppis peptac zantac etc. So I am looking to try something a bit more herbal. I have read things about dgl liquorice, slippery elm, digestive enzymes, apple cider vinegar. I know I won't cure my condition but just want to control it. I have found eating more regular to help as I seem to have pain when I'm hungry. I am eating more vegetables and drinking lots of water, I dont find any food to trigger my gerd I still even have a chinese on the weekend which dosen't bother me. I read that sometime the stomach may not have enough acid and then mimic over acidty so I tried betaine HCL which adds stomach to the acid but this made me very acidy all morning. After reading some many stories and symptoms on this site that I think mine by comparison aren't that terrible but still effects my life so greatly.
