Gerd Therapy?
I have had Gerd for 3 months after viral gastritis. I have no H pylori or hiatal hernia. I tried antacids but only gaviscon works and aluminum is bad for the body. I dont want to take PPI if possible. This is what I am taking right now to try to fix my stomach...

1. 4 oz of Georges Pure Aloe Vera Daily
2. 1 glass of Keifer for the probiotics.
3. Digestive Enzymes before meals
4. 1 DGL tablet daily
5. 2 apples daily

I chew xylitol gum daily as well. I have given up acidic foods, chocolate, and soda. Anyone got any other ideas?
My book Fix Your Gut is available on Amazon for $9.99.

This isnít your mommaís ebook. This book clocks in at 300 pages and took a year off my life. I put my blood, sweat, and tears in making sure that this ebook is one of the best literary pieces written in regard to digestive health. You want detailed cutting edge information on probiotics and digestive enzymes, BAM, itís all searchable in an easy to read .epub format.

My website also offers tons of information about magnesium / zinc supplementation, digestive health, and how to help rid yourself of H. pylori and GERD.

Re: Gerd Therapy?
I have been diagnosed with GERD. Have been on prescription acid reducer one a day for 6 months. Helped to a point.

Just went back to my doctor. He upped my dosage to twice a day. I asked him if weight could be a factor, and if I lost weight, could I get OFF THE MEDS?!? (I weigh 260)

He said, Yes. No waffling, no hesitation, just a definite Yes.

I also asked if there were any other things I could use meanwhile, if TSHTF and the meds were not available. He said Prilosec OTC was half the strength of the pill I was taking, and taking two twice a day would be equal to my prescription.

Cool! I now have a plan! Drop 50 pounds as quickly as possible, and stock up on Prilosec for just-in-case.

I hope this helps.

My husband has GERD. He eats chocolate, and drinks sodas everyday. Lately, soon after falling asleep he wakes up from the acid and vomits in the middle of the night. He can't lie down after that or the acid comes up into his throat. He's been taking "The Purple Pill" for years and if he misses even one, he's ill. I wish I could get him to take an interest in his health and change his diet. He also weighs about 260. Denial is a strong thing.

Re: Gerd Therapy?
I'm not sure how much you weigh. I recently learned that over weight people tend to get gurd also.

The heavy fat in the abdomen - changes the location of the stomach - pulling it down so the esophagus (sp?) now enters the stomach at a straight line versus a 90 degree angle. The acid then churns up into that straight pipe.
Personal responsibility - try it sometime. Quit blaming others for your bad choices. Consequences happen.

Yes, it's amazing how much you can ignore. But, take it from me... When his GERD is so bad that the throat is irritated into over-producing mucus, and he is afraid to lay down at night for fear he won't wake up in the morning, choking on his own phelgm... It's amazing how strong the desire for good health becomes.

And it's a decision you can't make for him. He has to come to the brink himself and look over the edge, before he will have the impetus to back away. I feel for you.

Re: Gerd Therapy?
For those of us who did not know what this is:

[link to health.google.com (secure)]

Gastroesophageal reflux disease

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition in which food or liquid travels backwards from the stomach to the esophagus (the tube from the mouth to the stomach). This action can irritate the esophagus, causing heartburn and other symptoms.

Re: Gerd Therapy?
My GERD totally vanished in a week after I began drinking restructured alkaline antioxidant water.

The worst thing about this water is I am able to eat anything I want late at night and it doesn't bother me. This is not good as I still need to lose more weight!

If you would like to try the water for free, sign up for the free ebook here:

Prop the head of your bed up at an angle on cinder blocks to keep stomach acid from traveling up your esophagus when you sleep.

Re: Gerd Therapy?
Braggs organic apple cider vinegar with the mothers in the bottom. I had very bad gerd one step away from cancer Barretts . Had to get scoped every year. Started taking braggs 2 tablespoons in morning straight, with a glass of water after. You can mix 2 tablespoons in 8 oz. of water. I prefer to get it done and over with. Last time I got scoped they told me everything looked great, keep doing whatever you are doing. Don't have to go back for 3 years!!!!

Re: Gerd Therapy?
There are a lot of misconceptions about GERD. For one, it's usually caused by not enough acid, and bacteria may play a role. In such cases, ppi's are not the solution!
