Hi
 
You mentioned that your cells had started to change. What does that mean the "BIG C".
 
If thats the case how can they reverse it?

Since Chester hasn't replied yet, perhaps I can help. I think Chester is talking about Barrett's esophagus. It's a condition where the cells in the esophagus start to change. I believe they start to take on the appearance of the cells in the stomach lining. Apparently this increases the chances of developing esophagael cancer (the "BIG C"). I don't have it so I won't pretend to be an expert. I can say that it's a good reason to get an endoscopic exam even if you have silent acid relux without symptoms.

I don't believe there is any way to reverse the process but I'm not sure. There is an article about Barrett's in the Heartburn Resources area.

Hope this helps.
