Recently Joined this forum to share my Cure for GERD / HEARTBURN or Acid Reflux Disease.
Here is how I Got Cured : My doc Prescribed me Omeprazole 20 mg for 1 month twice a day and Motilium 10mg (DOmperidone - I know this stuff is not available in most of the country, but I get it here).
After a month I was to cut by meds by half, simple by opening the contents in omeprazole are throwing the contents in half and consuming. I cheated my Doc and gradually reduced it to one small grain of the omeprazole too soon and it worked.
Aftermath , here is the part were everyone is scared. I know there will be a rebound of Acid soon after taking of the meds, its like the rebound starts after 2 or 3 days. My only solution to this was as soon as I get the burning sensation I would Start walking and bear a bit of Pain, I had to wait for 2 weeks until this pain reduced.
I know its really hard but for me an Over all Pain for One Month after taking of meds cured my Gerd Completely.
Story Timeline :
Jan 2017 - I had my first gerd attack, reason was I had Raw Lemon Juice in Middle of Night.
Struggled till Feb with Ranitidine, Antacids, Gaviscon ... etc ..
Feb - Met my Doc Friend who told me that this is curable only through Patience...
Mar - went of the meds, and started reducing the meds.
April - Was completely off meds and Had to Bare burning pains sometimes from Stomach (This pain is like acid on the left inside of the ribs.)
May - Was completely off GERD , Could get back to Speak properly (I had throat problems with GERD). and Sleep well now.
Its August now , and I am content that I ve got my normal life Back from all the Gerd Pains and Suffering, Feeling Blessed now.
WHAT I have LEARNED.
-For the most Important thing I know is that GERD is 100 % Curable. Cuz this is what my Fav Doc Told me.
My Doc mentioned the PPI or Heartburn Drugs are something that causes dependance and when people feel cured they get a rebound.
- GERD Happens in different Ways by
- H Pylori Bacteria Infection.
- Weak LES (I'm not sure if there is actually something called WEAK LES, LES actually closes with good stomach acid - I dont have evidence to prove it.)
- Stress.(Be cautious, stress is a killer.)
TIPS for ALL While on GERD DISEASE
- There are natural Way to cure this disease, kindly do a research on this.
- Ginger Tea is a miracle, it works like all the PPI, have a cup of ginger tea Half an hour before food.
- For Good Sleep especially for GERD Patients, always sleep on the left side.
- GERD Can only be cured in Months and not in days, It takes time to Cure, understand this.
- Never stress in Daily life and have good Sleep / Eat / Family Time Schedule.
- While on MEDS for GERD never Take MILK or DAIRY Products (This is a very Important Advice to all, cuz I dont know, My doc told me not to)
From above all, There are many people around who cured there GERD Disease, But for me it was hard to Finda solutions in this forum. I even heard people who got cured are not active in this forum or might have left. Here is my Story, I wish this never happens again. I Know its HARD on being in GERD.
