Has anybody purchased this-it says it contains info on things that can be purchased at the grocery store that will end reflux forever-not treat the symptoms, but stop the actual cause.
Is this just more hot-air?
Thanks

I heard about it but I thought was probably all hog wash.  Let me know if you learn more about it and if you think there is something that can give us hope sitting on the grocery store shelves.

You can always try it. What works for one person may not work for another. For me DGL licorice does not really help much and I do find apples help.

nono    Don't waste your money.  Obviously this guy has made an absolute fortune by telling you to eat red delicious apples and honey.  Also drink vinegar mixed with water and honey.  Also don't drink coffee...blah blah blah.  There are a couple of these reports you can send for that say the same thing.  Although one thinks the apples are a cure all for acid reflux.  Very expensive hogwash. They have evidently never experienced the gut wrenching keep you awake all night acid reflux!   I wish a cure was that simple. 

Just curious - do any of you have involuntary swallowing sometimes when you are eating?

I'm not about to waste my money on something like that. I am trying herbal stuff to help and that is about it, but so far nothing is helping.

I couldn't tolerate the DGL licorice as it taste to bad for me. I am now taking Slippery Elm and Marshmello Root Herbs to help with inflammation of the esophagus, but it doesn't really help with GERD. I am also drinking Aloe Vera Juice to sooth the esophagus as well. It taste awful, but I mix it with my decaffeinate ice tea and it makes it a bit more tolerable.

Hi Patty,
  I have some swallowing issues.  Sometimes after I eat, I feel like my swallowing gets weak....It doesnt complete the full swallow.  I have to force it at times.
  I do get involuntary swallowing, but mostly when I am sleeping.  It wakes me up.
  My Dr. thinks this is due to LPR, and the acid having an effect on the delicate muscles and nerves in the throat area.
  Im not sure what it is, or what causes it.  I was worrying alot about it before I had my upper gi done, but since nothing "bad" showed up, Im trying to not be as anxious about it.  I also read that stress can play apart in swallowoing problems.  I do know that I get stressed out easily especailly over alot of these symptoms of gerds and LPR.  Some can be quite scarey and painful, and some are just plain annoying!
  PS....anyone get plugged ears?

Yes, YankeeRose, I get plugged ears often. It took me a while to figure it was from the acid reflux. This disease causes a multitude of problems. I wish the doctors had an answer as to why the sphincter muscle (I don't think I spelled that right) quits working and how to fix it.

Hi again Patty,
  At first I didnt connect the plugged ears to acid reflux either!  I couldnt figure out how that was connected to my esophagus issues...but,I guess when you think about it, LPR is in the throat,and all that area is connected.  Sometimes I feel like I am underwater!
  I wish there was a cure for this disease.  There are so many different  symptoms, and it affects our bodies in so many different ways.  Im so glad that  I found this forum.  It helps to know other people have the same symptoms as I do....Because sometimes I really think Im losing my mind!!..lol

Halls,
You couldn't tolerate DGL licorice?? Are you allergic to it in some way???
When I had severe symptoms (now completely cured definitely by using DGL in high doses at first) I would have tried ANYHTING to get better. Taste never entered into my mind!!
I was on a PPI for one month and then had a rebound effect (as my gastro had said I would most likely have). It's interesting what he said to me...."you don't want to be on these meds for too long", meanwhile people are on them for years! I've heard 10-15 yrs.! Have any of you read the very fine print of what they can ultimately cause!!!
All the other supplements are fine too, I took all of them too. You should take the Aloe Vera without diluting it though.
The key to healing your esophagus is to COAT it with something so that food can be swallowed without causing any damage.
VERY IMPORTANT: Sleep only on your LEFT side, your heart side - acid cannot come up from your stomach to your esophagus if you sleep that way.
Do not sleep on your back or on your right side.
I trained myself to do that also and still prefer to sleep that way. I tell everyone, the least they can do is that.

YankeeRose,
My symptoms were severe nausea, lump in throat feeling and dizziness....never felt pain in my esophagus. I went for every test you can imagine, even a brain scan.
I judiciously followed an Alkaline way of eating....search back for all my postings....and DGL. Within 1 1/2 months I was basically cured. I told my Gastro that I cured myself and gave him all my information. Hopefully he will help some of his patients with it. My family doctor has put DGL on his drug list to offer to his patients....he couldn't believe the success I had with it.
He knows I have no addictive behaviors and I was diligent in my recovery and ultimate cure.
Good luck to all.

Danie, the DGL just tastes so horrible to me, and I have a thing about when I taste something so bad I gag and than I throw up. And I don't need to throw up and get more acid in my esophagus! If there was a way to take the DGL for me without tasting it and gagging I would.

You are right about the Aloe Vera juice. I've been taking it mixed with something like tee, juice, or water to not taste how bad it is. I can tolerate the Aloe Vera Juice straight now and it is does seem to be so soothing when it goes down the esophagus. I take a 4th of a cup of the aloe vera juice now right before each meal and if I feel heartburn coming on. I took it today and I swear it feels like it is moisturizing my esophagus each time I swallow a 4th of a cup. The good thing is that you can gulp the 4th of a cup real fast in one swoop. I can't do that with the DGL which is why I end up gagging.

You have any ideas on how to take the DGL than let me know. I have my endescopy on Tuesday and until than though I'm not going to take anything so I don't hurt the testing process. He needs a clear look and I am having the bravo done to, so I can't take anything that will prevent heartburn until after the testing is over.

Have you tried the "Heartburn Free" Orange Peel Extract dietary supplement? I bought some and am thinking of giving it a try.

Hey Halls,

I noticed you mentioned about gagging and throwing up.  It's a real good thing you are not having to do the ph probe.  I have a terrible gag reflex and the first pulmonologist I went to ordered the ph probe for me.  I pulled it out three times and by the third attempt, I was fighting the nurse that was trying to force it down.  I didn't mean to, I just couldn't stand having it done.  I changed pulomonologist and he knew I had to have it done since the GI guy didn't do the Bravo, so he went to bat for me to have it done under general anesthesia.  He told me that called him from the hospital three or four times that afternoon to tell him that didn't do that procedure under general.  He told them I had to have it done, that I had a bad gag reflex and I had tried to have it done without anesthesia and just could not do it.  You appreciate those doctors.

Good luck on your endoscopy and Bravo!

Carla

i've tried apple cider vinegar before, and it works, but you have to use it at least twice a day, and it feels funny on your teeth (use a straw). also, don't forget to take it, because you will remember when you start hurting. thanks guys for the remarks on clogged ears. it has happened to me several times, and i never knew why.

try to stay away from smoking, and the carbonated beverages. it doesn't help the situation.

I went the route of Tums for years, finally graduating to Nexium. Last year I went to an acupuncturist that was treating different things with electronic acupuncture done on your back. I do not have to take Nexium anymore. Sometimes I still use papaya tablets, but that is such a mild thing to have to do, I don't mind. I don't know if it will help everyone, but it helped me. I don't remember exactly what he called it, but you could probably find someone in your area. If you want to inquire what to look for, his name is Dr Homoky and I think it is Plano TX where he has his office. I'm sure his office staff would be glad to give you the name of the procedure.
