I suffered with Acid Reflux, hiatal hernia, gastritis, etc. for years, which in the past year turned into esophagatis. Many years of prilosec, nexium, prevacid, etc. Apple cider vinegar did nothing for me. I read your post on banana's and tried them, after dinner, and I have not felt so good in years. I have tried numerous natural remedies, including plantains, and cabbage juicing. The bananas are a great help, although I'm not saying they are the "cure" , they have definitely helped a lot. To the point where I can have a sip of coffee, in between green tea, kefir and yogurt. Daily doses of plain yogurt, not the sugared up stuff, have helped alot also. I could go on, but will cease for now.
