Welcome to Healingwell! We must be cut from the same cloth, I'm in my early forties, married, gerd/lpr and four kids.....well thats three out of four anyway lol.
Did your doctor say how bad your barretts were? Long or short segments? Any dysplasia?
Thanks for the support, I have to admit some days can be hard to get through as my symptoms are always changing.
The manuka honey I buy is Wedderspoon active 16+. Wedderspoon seems to have the best quality control and put out very high quality honey. I believe they even have some on thier web site that is higher than 16+ but it is VERY expensive. I buy mine at Whole foods for around $30 for 17.5 oz. Manuka and aloe won't cure gerd/lpr but I believe it will help heal some of the damage the reflux causes.
I'm grateful for the blessings in my life and for the strength to continue to fight this illness.
Good luck and don't hesitate to ask any questions, I'll do my best to answer.
