1 out of 5 stars

I was in the hospital for 4 days with severe stomach pain under my left breast behind rib cage with burning sensation & bloated stomach worst pain I have ever experienced & they did upper gi and the only thing I was told I had was Gastritis. They put me on Prilosec prescription & at first it helped & alot of air was released out of my stomach almost immediately and it got better but today is 5 days on meds and it stopped working now, so I am back to square one & hurting again. I was told I had high stomach acid in hospital, but now wonder if I still do after taking prilosec, since it stopped working. I know I don't have colitis I don't have any symptoms pointing that direction. I have tried taking apple cider vinegar and its not helping either. I wish everyone luck here & I hope my pain goes away. I am open to any suggestions? Thank you!

Have you tried two tsp of ACV with 1/2 tsp of baking soda? I've been taking this for about a month and it has made a huge difference in my digestive tract!

Pamm from Birmingham, I think what you want to use is manuka honey. This stuff worked like a miracle for my reflux and is supposed to cure about any GI tract issue.

The way I did it was to apply 1 Teaspoon of the honey to a 1"x1" piece of rice bread, chew well and swallow 20 minutes before eating. The bread will prevent the honey from being absorbed into bloodstream too quickly, will coat the esophagus and GI tract to help protect it from the acid and begin healing. It is supposed to take up to 3-6 months to heal completely, but you can feel it begin to work almost immediately.

My friend thought I was nuts for not wanting to keep using the pills which gave relief (but suppressing symptoms not dealing with the problem) but then led me to eat/drink things I should have been avoiding (drinks with acid, dairy, etc) until balance is restored. I felt 80% better in just 2-3 days. Please, please, please try the manuka, it saved my life.

If despite medical help & Apple Cider Vinegar one doesn't find relief for excessive stomach acid... I found a highly effective ancient yoga procedure which is supposed to work miracles. It's highly effective if done a couple of times a week till u taper it off to once or twice a month. The procedure is very simple and in India one calls it " Kunjal". Any good yoga teacher can teach u the simple technique which is quite simply a warm water stomach wash. Great for ppl who suffer from excess acidity & general detox plus what better than the joys of no side effects!!

Brijorg, I just now seen your reply, I wish Earth Clinic sent emails to show people who replies to your post, however I am getting the stuff you said to get for your stomach today. Can I order it online? I am experiencing the tightness in stomach & lots of pressure, can't handle it anymore it keeps me up at night. They said Gastritis but Prilosec does not work anymore. I will try your remedy thank you so much!!
