I spoke with, of all people, my butcher as I ordered halibut, again. I told why dinner was not so exciting anymore, my husband has Reflux or GERD and has to eat bland. He came out from behand the counter and found me a couple of aisles down to tell me that he had suffered from this as well and that his wife had found a cure for him. He also has a twin brother who suffered from the same thing and this cure he had taken helped his twin as well. He said, before, he had to wait three hours before lying down after a meal, that he had given up tomato sauce, paste and soup; onions, garlic, etc. had raised his head of the bed, and all the other things that go with this cursesed disease. I asked him to tell me what it was, I'm willing to give anything a try if it means I can have garlic again.
He told me to go on the internet, go to "Market America" and go to health products and order Isometrics. He said he had a little spoonful in water half hour after meals. He said it aided in digesting his meal and eliminating the remaining acid. I'm going to order it, I'll put into something else, like carrot juice for my husband, and see if it works. I'll let you know what happens. Keeping my fingers crossed.
