I just wanted to let you know that taking 2 oz. (or so) of Aloe Vera before meals really helps coat one's esophagus and throat. If you have esophagitis or Barrett's esophagus caused by GERD, this is for you.
Before Thanksgiving, my esophagus was getting worse by the day. My chest was sensitive to touch, and I was getting a tickling cough. After only a week of taking aloe vera gel, my cough is gone and the burning in my esophagus is going down. My chest still feels sensitive, but not like before.
I also think aloe vera helps acid reflux, but I'm not sure. Any thoughts on this or any other GERD/esophagitis treatment? Let me know at [email protected] Also, if anyone knows how to get FRESH aloe vera gel, PLEASE e-mail me as it would be very helpful.
