My daughter aged 20 years has been suffering from GERD since one year. We are based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Her symptoms are:
- Loose Esophagus Sphincter.
- Prescribed Clintodac one tablet daily after dinner.
- Initially she was vomiting as soon as she takes food.
- Started taking juices, coconut water, Glucose water, milk.
- She cannot take Paracetomol etc due to acidity.
- Started Ayurvedic medicines and after five months she started taking Salads, Curd, Milk, Oats, Bread, Eggs, cereal, Vegetables (without spice). No spicy or oily foods or fast foods. Most of them alkaline foods.
- Due to college activities she may not have taken regularly her medicines or food. She had stomach infection and fever that lasted for 10 days.
- Now she is back to beginning and vomitting whatever she takes. We are again starting with Juices, Coconut water, milk only.
Is there any treatment that would help her eat food without vomiting them?

GERD Medication Side Effects
Protonix caused numbness and pain in my legs and apparently this medication made my B-12 levels tank (which affects your bone /nerve health)
GERD Medication Side Effects
I take 40 MG of pantoprazole daily for GERD; and though it helps, I am wondering if it could be contributing to gout-like symptoms? Does anyone else report similar findings? The symptoms are: itching and burning sensations at the ends of my toes and arms. Sometimes a numbness in the legs. The sensations come on in the middle of the night and wake me to the point that I cannot get back to sleep. I thought that maybe too many carbs might be causing this, but now I am wondering. I am looking at a more alkaline diet to see if that might help. What do you think, could it be the meds? Thanks.
OK, 10 years ago Iwas diagnosed with gerd. meds didn't help. natural cures unknown to me. had surgery. called Nissen Fundo. the top of the stomach is wrapped either 180 or 360 degrees around bottom of esophagus. It took care of gerd but other major problems developed. Barely left house in 10 years. Please say NO TO GERD SURGERY.
The problem is that there is a good chance of vagus nerve being damaged. Google "nissen fundo wikipedia" and get the facts. Click on each complication. Impossible to find a surgeon to reverse. Did research on doc at cleveland clinic. He's the head of thoracic surgery and does 2-3 nissen repairs per week and did research article on why the surgery doesn't work. Not sure if i can have it reversed. Start taking hoodia tomorrow b/c i can only function if i don't eat. If remedies don't help you may also have a hiatal hernia. when you wake take a glass of water and jump 3 times. Look into other cures for hernia. praying works.
I have been suffering with GERD since March of 2012, I am 52 years old, and recently after many months of researching the best natural treatments, I must say that Glutamine along with Chamomile tea is absolutely amazing. My GERD is nearly 90% gone. I take the Glutamine on an empty stomach or between meals, 1/4 teas. In water. And I drink a cup of chamomile tea about 20 minutes after I eat a full meal. And now my GERD is nearly gone within a few days. Brown rice and sweet potatoes are a staple side dish in my everyday meals and this has also helped tremendously. I just wanted to share this with those suffering from GERD. All the best~
I have suffered from GERD for about a year. Recently I read online that chewing sugarless gum right after a meal for about half an hour could help and I have found that to be true for me. Happy it works but I still hope to find a permanent cure.
I disagree with the thread that states you need to neutralize stomach acid to cure acid reflux, which is the ideology of mainstream meds like Prilosec. Doing so will only exasperate the condition. Hear is why.
Poor eating habits high in crabs cause an overgrowth of starch metabolizing bacteria, like h pylori, in the stomach. These bacteria actively lower the stomach acids to facilitate their own growth, which reduces the stomachs ability to do its job, digest food. If food does not reach a certain acid level, it will not be released into the intestines and will sit in the stomach like a rock. This causes stomach bacteria to begin metabolizing the food in the stomach, which causes a gas byproduct to build and resultant burping. The burping brings up gastric acids into the esophagus, and resultant GERD.
Curing GERD means healthy eating habits (low starch diet) and restoring stomach acids with HCL acid tablets. If your GERD has already progressed to stomach ulcers, you will first need to address that problem before re-acidifying the stomach. Worked like a charm for me.

Licorice Root Extract
Thank you all for your comments regarding ACV and GERD. I have had this annoying problem for a couple of years now. My nurse practitioner suggested using DGL or"Deglycyrrhizinated" Licorice Root Extract. It is available from several different companies at any local health food store. It is not a cure, but it is very soothing. Two tablets in the morning keeps acid reflux away all day for me, but I will try ACV too. Will report back...Thanks!
Hi: I need to know if I can use calm magnesium chloride internally; the bottle says use externally. It's a liquid. Can you please advise me? I am following Bill Thompson's protocol for Gerd. Thank you, Jackie
I have had GERD (reflux disease) for six years now. I started taking ranitidine and then quickly worked my way up to nexium from 20mg a day to 40mg a day. Even on 40mg a day, I still had signs of persistent GERD in the form of chest pain. I read about MANGOSTEEN, a natural fruit juice that is becoming more popular and decided to try it for its general health purposes. I did not expect that it would keep me off of my nexium!!! I take 2 -3 1 oz shot glass size drinks a day and I have not taken my nexium since October...it is now February! If I miss a day, I do feel it. But I feel great not taking the prescribed medication.
GERD: Marshmallow Root tincture. Has Eliminated sore throat, sinus issues not too mention other issues that go along with gerd. Instructions varied on web sites I followed the bottle.
Gerd: Melatonin seems to be helping protect my esophagus. There is a vitamin, amino acids, hormones, therapy, with Melatonin I found online. 170 people's I believe. Versus PPI's
I was on PPI drugs for over a year for GERD. The GERD gave me syncope, coughing, and dizziness related to low blood pressure. The drug only made things worse by suppressing the acid. I had some improvement from choosing alkaline foods over acid ones, and paying attention to food combining, but I could still get very ill from even alkaline foods, including GERD cures aloe Vera juice and apple cider vinegar.
Nothing worked until I did two things. I took liquid melatonin once every day and I made sure I was drinking at least 3 pints of water a day, shooting for 4 when I could. I put a pinch or two or unrefined salt into each pint. This helps to prevent low blood pressure and helps the body to not just urinate out the water right away.
After a couple of weeks (relief/success was instant! ), I got off of the antacid drug (I chose to taper because it virulently I suppressed acid when you try to kick the drug suddenly), and I have never had a return of the problem that made me a basket case afraid to go out (in case I fainted; the acid was always making me feel hot and very dizzy, with a wildly erratic pulse). I went to a general practitioner and several specialists, but it was only by doing my own Internet research and implementing the EarthCiunic suggestion of melatonin (plus following proper hydration practice for someone of my weight and activity level) that I was helped.
I am completely cured of the issue. I no longer lie awake with GERD/cardiac distress, though I do urinate three times a night because of the water I drink. I am 78 years of age and an athlete. Thank you, EarthClinic, and Art from California who posted about melatonin as a GERD cure!

I suffered from Gerd for years caused by a Hiatus Hernia. Eventually I found relief by using milk powder. I would hold a teaspoon of milk powder in my mouth and suck on it. This gave almost immediate relief. After many years the symptoms stopped, and I no longer use any treatment.
