"Benign esophageal stricture is a narrowing or tightening of the esophagus that causes swallowing difficulties. It can be caused by or associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease, esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus), dysfunctional lower esophageal sphincter, disordered motility, or a hiatal hernia."

If it's the result of tissue scarring, then you might want to try remedies that promote healing of scar tissue & use them internally in a tea or soft porridge that you sip. If the Stricture is from a hiatal hernia, then use a remedy for that. I healed a hiatal hernia once using Goldenseal Root with some other herbs. And if the Stricture is a result of Reflux or GERD problems, then you'd need to correct those problems with the appropriate remedies before you see any correction to the Esophageal Stricture you have."
