I have not posted in awhile. I have Gerd and have just recently had another scope and found out i have peptic ulcer disease and some emptying issues. I ama 44 year old male and completely frustrated. not sure what to do. my doctor says it is due to stress and genetics. negative for H pylori and Barretts. I quit taking omeprozole (40mg 2x a day) 2 months ago and have not seen any change in symptoms which answers my question if the meds stopped working. I have tried EVRYTHING under the sun. natural and medical. Truthfully most of the natural stuff i did not give much of a chance. My doc says i need to go on a "caveman" diet, reduce stress and let my stomach heal. I barely eat and at 6'3 am now down to about 170lbs. (was 220). He said due to poor swallow test Nissen is NOT a good option.
What natural remedies work best for GERD. My symptoms are closer to LPR with lots of belching
Slippery elm? Marshmellow? Ginger?......................... Teas or powder, tablets?
any info on natural rememdies will be much apprecieated.
BTW I produce to much acid so low acid is not the problem. I have been working out for past month and feel decent. Just scared I am withering away.
