Since so many of you are so desperate for help, I don't see why you can't give the DGL licorice a try.  It's much more natural than all the drugs you are on now!   You have to use it BEFORE YOU EAT ANYTHING THOUGH. 
Please read this:
 
 
I know it helped me get over GERD along with a careful alkaline diet (not really a diet since it's an extremely healthy way of eating).  :-)

I'm trying it but I'm confused because you say you take 3 and my bottle says to only take one, with 2 being the maximum for extreme conditions.  What does your bottle say?  Also, what is the MG amount on your pills?

Danie,

1) Did you have any encouraging results from taking DGL the first week? I took it for 2 days and was feeling worse and that starts me thinking I don't have the same condition.

2) Thank you for the soup recipe. (Any other recipes would be appreciated - I have to sling "child fare" each day - mac and cheese, spaghetti - you get the picture - and find it very hard to focus on a diet for me.)

380 mgs.
 
It took me one month to feel better.  I have already posted that I was discouraged many times but knew that I would never go back to drugs so I stuck it out.  I had a breakthru after one month.

They tasted fine to me, remember sugar is acid in the stomach anyway.

Kevinla,

Where did you find the DGL tablets without fructose? I think that's part of my problem - think I'm a bit hypoglycemic and the DGL I have registers as candy - definitely not helpful.

Lonibel,

I can tell you.

Are we allowed to refer to other sites here?  I got in big trouble for posting a link on another health message board.

Helen,
Just check back on my postings to get more information on alkaline foods.

Here is a link to one:
http://www.thewolfeclinic.com/acidalkfoods.html

Remember, alkaline doesn't always mean good for someone with GERD. For example, lemon juice. It becomes alkaline in the stomach but will burn going down the esophagus. The point is not to burn the esophagus, it has to heal. Use the DGL licorice 20 minutes before you eat anything, dissolve in your mouth with saliva. You can use the apple cider vinegar (diluted with water though or it's also too acid for a damaged esophagus), that seems to help alot of people too.

I bought empty gelatin capsules at the health food store today. I'm putting lemon juice into them and swallowing the capsule.

Lonibel, but DANIE said that lemon juice is not good for someone with GERD and that DGL should be taken in the chewable form so that saliva can be formed...does anyone know about slippery elm/marshmallow root?  I heard that that is good to take when you have GERD too...

Friendlygal,

Lonibel can do that with the lemon juice if she wants since she will not be drinking it straight.  It will bypass the esophagus and go strait into the stomach.  It would work the same with the apple cider vinegar.  It's alot of work though and I don't know how much it can help.

The DGL HAS to be taken in chewable form - how many times can I repeat this!!!!!  It ONLY works because it coats the esophagus and heals it and protects it from food going down.

I had posted about slippery elm lozenges.  They have been used by opera singers forever for their throat.  I still use them instead of a candy when I feel my throat is dry or irritated.  They are very good but again they are natural from a plant/tree so watch for any allergic reaction in case you have allergies. 
I don't have any allergies or asthma so I was able to try just about all supplements without worrying about allergic reactions.

The same goes for marshmallow root, you can try it but if you have allergies I would think twice about combining alot of things together.  This is from plants too.

Danie, I know that you said DGL should be chewable...I was letting someone else know that...

Not sure I quite understand about lemon juice yet...does the slippery elm/marshmallow root have to be in chewable form?  Because where i went they only have capsules...
