I promised I would post this study last year when it was fresh, but I forgot because I was researching so much and I was working on other things with my Naturopathic doctor.
I know some of you like studies and do not want to take any natural remedy, but this may shed some light on some of your doubts about them.
I am posting a a journal article by a naturopathic doctor. It specifically goes over natural supplements with studies, trials, efficiency etc. some studies are small some are big. You may have heard of some and you may have tried one or two.
It consists of chiropractic study, melatonin study, honeysuckle (mice), iberogast, d-limonene, Artemesi Asiatica, curcumin/quercitin and cut E. and it also goes over the obvious treatments such as ppis and acid reducers.
Just to let you know, I tried the melatonin for 29 days, but didnt feel different. I've read in other forums that this actually does work, but it can potentially lead to an autoimmune disease. This purely anecdotal though, and this was 1 year ago.
I have not tried the others because we took a different route for my case with my Naturopathic.
Here is the link and please ppl, tell me what you think, you have tried, and will try. I am only posting the study for everyone to read I am not giving any advice on what to do or take.
By the way, I am not cured by no means yet, I am still trying different things.
Here it is:
Diagnosed with GERD/IBS in 2007. However, my symptoms are most similar to LPR. I am still unsure of the IBS diagnosis.
Currently I am taking a natural approach to my symptoms since July 2011.
