I was diagnosed with acid reflux last year (symptoms- throwing up after eating acidic food, I.e. with tomato derivatives). My doctor prescribed me with PPI. After taking this drug for 6 months, my GI doctor told me to have a 2nd endoscopy. I was told I developed Barrett Syndrome and my stomach lining is all red (ulcer). Is started getting hungry at the middle of the night. After I learned my diagnosis, I researched natural remedies for this kind of disease. I stopped taking the drug and started taking the Aloe Vera juice. It's natural and no side effects. After a week of taking Aloe, all the acid reflux symptoms are gone. After 6 months of taking the Aloe, I went back to the same doctor and told him I stopped taking the drug as it has caused me more bad effects. He was not pleased with me for not taking the drug. He recommends for a 3rd endoscopy but he wanted me to take the PPI meds 2x the dose.
I went for a second opinion and found out that one of the doctors in my primary physician's office had the same problem like I do and he also takes Aloe Vera juice. I went to see a different GI doctor, he listened to my problem, and wanted me to have an endoscopy and see if there is any progress for just taking the Aloe. The result came out very good and the Barrett Syndrome I was told was not as bad as it was and was advised to continue taking Aloe. I was so relieved!
Now I shared my Aloe experience with my friend who had worst acid reflux than I had and she was so thankful because she no longer suffers from bad acid reflux. My doctor also mentioned that all of us have acid reflux it is just a matter of how bad it can be.
For all who suffers acid reflux, I recommend Aloe Vera juice that is pure aloe extract and balances stomach acid naturally. It works! Now, I start reintroducing the food that I love and it does not bother me no more!
