I have had GERD symtoms for about a year.  I have been taking DGL licorice for about a month.  The first two weeks I took 3 tablets 4 x a day.  I am now taking 4 tablets 4x a day.  My symptoms are waking up with a bad taste in my mouth, difficulty swallowing, and a lump in my throat.  All three symptoms have begun to get better.  Most noticeably, the waking up with bad taste in my mouth. 
 
I suck on the tablets for about 5 minutes and let them dissolve in my mouth.

KLA,

WOW, so happy for you.  Keep it up, you will heal and then not need even the DGL.  Best wishes toward a full recovery.

Kevinla, that is great to hear. Just keep at it and your body will slowly recover. I know exactly how you feel. I was in major hell for two years with difficulty swallowing and inability to use my voice like I normally did before. I had many other symptoms as a result. I too was saved by some inexpensive cheap licorice called DGL that I took a chance on because of a stranger named Danie. It is now going on week 7 since I started and I have continued to get better and better each week since I've been on DGL. I am staying at around 95% now but it's not getting any worse. 7 weeks ago my voice and throat was at 60%.

The funny thing is and Danie is right about this. As time goes on I feel almost normal to the point where I forget to even take the DGL because it's obviously healing whatever problem I had. I have cut down big time since I first started. Now I only take two pills before a meal(I only eat once a day) and I also take 1 pill at bedtime.

Also for Danie, are you even taking DGL on a daily basis anymore? I did read up on DGL at my health food store and yes, it says it heals erosions in the esophagus stomach linings and doesn't just cover up the symptoms like these other products do. I have no doubt I'll be able to go off these in the next month or two. Whatever these little dull tasting lozenges do they sure do work. Keep us updated Kevinla as time goes on.

Hi Randy,
No, I no longer take DGL and haven't been taking it for a long time. I took it for about 2 months and then just tapered off. Remember though that I only had GERD symptoms for 1 month so maybe it was quicker for me to heal.

So glad you are doing well :)

My doctor here in NYC is now going to recommend DGL to his patients. I have to go see my gastroenterologist to report on my "cure". I actually don't need to go but will just to tell him about DGL and to ask him also to help his patients and give them more information other than just writing a prescription for some drug!!

The very least a medical doctor can do is to tell patients to try DGL and to sleep on their left side before giving them major drugs.
Let me repeat, by the way, this doctor told me that he did not want me on Prilosec for longer than one MONTH. He said, and I quote, "You don't want to be on these drugs longer than that"! Imagine, and there are people on them for YEARS.

My best to you,
Danie

Hello Every One, I been taking DGL for two weeks now and I am feeling much better too. I only take 3-4 pills every day because my symptoms were not bad but the good thing is I don't have to take Zantac, Protonix, Tums etc etc any more

HB,
Glad to hear you are being helped by DGL.  Make sure you sleep on your left side too :)

I really want to find and try this licorice but I'm in Australia for the next 5 months and can't find any local or online stores that ship to me because Australia customs is considered too strict to send supplements. Been on prevacid 20mg 1x day for about a year now, really want to find something to help me since I'm only 20. :( Guess I'll have to wait until I get back to try this nifty stuff out.
