As you all know, I'm a hug advocate of natural healers (manuka honey & aloe vera gel). I have been researching other natural healers and found one that I've been taking for about a week now. It is not a magic bullet, however so far my gerd and lpr symptoms are greatly improved. I only hope it continues and help heal my les.
 
I mix about a half teaspoon with about 4oz of water, stir and drink. Do not use any metal objects to stir or contain (it binds to metals).
 
Here it is......"Edible" Red Desert Clay or "living clay" (premium calcium montmorillonite). It has a ph value of 8.3 alkaline.
 
It is a detox as well and will bind to metals, toxins, poisions, etc... that means all meds also, so you must take it min. 2hrs away from all meds.
 
It has been used by several Native American tribes and other cultures as a "healing clay" for many many years.
 
Make sure you drink "alot" of water through out the day!

As you know I will pretty much try anything, and if it is helping you, then I am definetly going to give it a try. Can you get it on amazon?

erica,
 
I knew you would be waiting for the info. :)
 
I'm sure you can buy it from amazon but I don't know that for fact. I am in no way connected to this website but here is were I bought it from....I am perfectly healthly.com. I bought it there because she offers "top quality" products (you get what you pay for).
 
I have to admit, I had a family get together over the weekend and I did have a couple beers. I did have some issues the next day but not as bad as normally and it was sooooo worth it. Good luck

I found this one on Amazon: Terramin Mega-Mineral Supplement & Internal Detoxifier/Cleanser, 2-Pounds

The reviews are all positive on amazon. Here is the description.

" Terramin contains 57 ionically charged colloidal minerals that took nature millions of years to create. Only one micron in size (something modern technology cannot yet achieve) these minerals can be easily absorbed and utilized by the body. Most soils are depleted so it is difficult to get what we need from food. Basically our bodies are composed of minerals and water. Take away the water, and what is left is mainly a pile of minerals. Many high acid diets and beverages have leached mineral stores and weakened bones, joints, and connective tissues. Terramin’s high ph (alkaline) helps moderate acid levels. Helps in: Digestion: Heartburn, acid reflux, ulcers, intestinal distress, and an inability to fully breakdown food and absorb nutrition are signs of mineral deficiency and/or destructive microscopic invasion or food allergy. It also names various other areas it helps but I onlyposted the somtach stuff for us.

It is worth a try I think also. In case you are interested. It does not look like Amazon has the exact product you named. As I was trying to find it, I came across this. Looks interesting.

erica,
 
Thanks, I'll look into it....however the edible red desert clay is what I'll hang my hat on. It is a "living clay" and a "healing clay" different from anything out there, and I don't believe you'll find anything equal to it. Check out the web site to see for yourself or google red desert clay for more info. but there is a ton of info. on that site.

ok, I will check the website. I am thrilled for you that you found something that seems to work. I know you have been struggling.

Hey DOGGBONES, Erica,

Thanks for this. I love seeing threads like this, and knowing that we all keep trying to find new answers no matter what. It takes a lot to not give up. I'll put this on the list and will try it in due time, and will check back to see how you both do we with it too.

I started adding in L-glutamine also after doing some research. I will also report back on this as well.

I take L-glutamine once in awhile also, however just remember L-glut is a supplement were as the proper red desert clay is a "healer".
 
arm, I thought this topic would catch your attention as well.

that is true. All of this is trial and error. I will say that minus the GERD, I am healthier than I have been in a while with all these suppliments and natural healing agents.

@ Erica - I am the same way. I am grateful that due to GERD I am now super healthy and have healthy habits. I wasn't unhealthy before, but I didn't focus on my health either. I am happier with the way that I live now.

I tried L glutamine but had no luck. I still use it because I noticed that I never get sick when I take it...I think it is taken sometimes as an immune system booster. I take the powder kind, and mix it with a little bit of water.

It is too early for me to tell yet. I have the powder. Doesn't taste like anything. I will give it a try for a while and see what happens. Some people say it has helped them.

Hi all who have tried the "living clay",

May I have a verdict? Is it good for GERD?
I might use it as a replacement for my antacid tablets.

Here's my verdict......after using the "living clay" for a month (once daily, but I could and may increase to twice daily), my LPR symptoms are 90% gone. As for my daily reflux, it does help (it absorbs the excess stomach acid) but it hasn't cured my gerd. Not sure what to make of it, some days it helps alot and others alittle. I will continue to use in hopes of progress over time (my les hasn't worked properly in over 20yrs), if anything it may help min. any further damage.

Is there any evidence this product can fix the LES?

I would like to hear how it has worked after 6 months.

I have no evidence that "living clay" will heal the les. Red desert clay has been used for hundreds of years by many cultures as a internal and external healer. I will post my results at 6 months.

My symptoms are pretty much all lpr. I am encouraged that 90% of your LPR symptoms went away.

Erica + Dogbones,

Can I have an update on the red clay please? I'm symptomatic for the first time in a year and looking for something new to try!

MMM,

I don't take it much anymore when I'm doing "ok". I did think it was helpful and still mix it in with all my other supplements and remedies when things get bad. So I would say it does help some but no magic bullet. Good luck

Hey, this thread looks like a reunion of my friends here! I'm doing well. Current products are the food enzyme Beano, and Gas-X, or generic OTC equilivents. My symptoms were caused by gas from poor digestion. Get rid of gas means symptoms are gone. Bloating, belching all reduced or eliminated. Occasionally I also take a TUMS for heartburn, not often. I continue to eat small meals, that will always be important for me, but I no longer worry about acidity or too many carbs.

Hi Sunbeam!

Glad you're doing well!

So your enzymes don't have any betaine hydrochloride in? Interesting approach - I'll try it after the clay!!

MMM, the Beano generic food enzyme is not hcl, is alpha-galactosidase enzyme, derived from Aspergillus Niger, probably a plant.

Hi Sunbeam,

I looked at the product on a website but it says it contains wheat - though not sure how. It also appears to be made from aspergillus, which is a mould many asthmatics are allergic to, so I'd be a bit worried about trying it!
