Evamore is a common brand. You can find a location near you to buy it on their web site, just enter your zip code.

Sam, I just put a list of most digestible foods under Jasmine's post. Maybe that will also help you.

Copy and paste this. This is an article that explains benefits of alkaline water. Hope this helps,
it explains better then one can write. It is available in many stores. .

You all don't know how thankful I am to have found this site. Each of you have been far more informative than my doc. I know I need to have an egd done next...but I am scared of what it might find..? I keep hearing about barrets and it scares me..

Sam, I have Barrett's and I think it is not a big deal. Most often it does not progress to cancer, which is why they don't treat it. If it does progress, it does so slowly, and you would still be more likely to die of heart disease or other problems.

I've been drinking very high quality alkaline water (fresh from a neighbor's machine) for about a month now and I haven't noticed any positive changes. I'm going to keep drinking it though.

Barretts is potentially a precancerous condition. Potentially. In reality the biggest cause of death amongst people with Barretts, when you look at deaths from all causes, is heart disease!

If you do have it, and that's an IF, then usually you just have it monitored. The jury is still out on what makes it transform to cancer - and it is certainly not amongst the common cancers. Lots of people have Barretts and don't even know because they have no symptoms. If you screen a group of men over the age of 60, some of them will have it, but they won't have any symptoms of reflux or heartburn. It's still not fully understood so don't scare yourself unnecessarily.

Obviously there are people out there with Barretts that has started to transform but if caught early it is treatable with ablation. So being scoped is a good thing, but remember they are not looking just for Barretts and it often just rules things out and shows very little at all!
