Hello:  I was wondering if anyone has tried the mangosteen juice?  I am thinking of trying it because I am desperate but I am scared it may not work.  Also, can one take it while on Nexium?  The Nexium is taking forever to kick in and have been on it for six weeks.  I did try the apple cider vinegar only once and it was a disaster.  I had so much acid come up (in about an hour or so) I felt as if I was going to choke (scary).  Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks, Porcelain Doll

Dear Indersonu:  Thanks for taking the time to reply to my question!!! I went to the health food store and had purchased Aloe Vera juice because the lady said it would be quite beneficial since Aloe Vera was a natural anti-inflammatory and she thought it would be better than the mangosteen.  Oh Boy!!!! When I took the Aloe Vera juice I had not yet read your post and drank it.  It does contain citric acid and that night the acid was horrible and I wanted to die.  I even felt as if I wanted to choke.  I even had to use my albuterol because I even had terrible tightness in my chest.  It took about 2 hours and 3 gaviscons for my acid to subside.  My Nexium is taking forever to kick in.....

I am trying to eat more fruits but apples which are full of fiber still bother me.  What makes me feel good is plain yogurt with bananas and I have been eating that daily.  I know bananas constipate and I have been taking Metamucil caplets but I still am not getting complete relief.  Again thanks for your much appreciated advice.  Porcelain Doll........
