I wanted to thank you everyone on this LPR page for sharing their experience. Its truly a help. They day I was reading your comments I was so desperate and sad that its been 2 years that I am sick and I have not been able to do anything. Every morning I wake up with lots of mucus and cough. LPR and Sinus infection and 2 surgery so far!!! I am sure with your help I won't have the third surgery :)
I wanted to share with everyone things that has helped me instantly and I have seen improvement within just a few days.
1) Apple cider vinegar. It just works right away and stops my cough
2) probiotics - could see the difference within just 3 days
3) barley leaves powder. which does has iodine in it as well. You will see the difference within 2 days. I bought this one
4 ) Black seed oil. I have not seen much change within a few days, it might help longer time
5) Aloe vera. I just took the plant and put it in blender with honey and water and take 2 spoon a day. I can't say that it has been working as strong as barley leave and probiotics.
I have started these 5 items one by one and now I am taking them all together. It has just been a week but I see the difference.
Of course I have changed my diet completely. I have removed oil and red meat from my diet. I ate dinner at restaurant couple of times and it made my symptoms worse, even the vegetarian sushi! So I avoid eating outside. I think their stuff is old and not fresh. Even vegetarian food with no toping or sauce. Avoid eating outside for a while.
I recommend taking these lab works to see if you have any bacteria: Candida and Pylori. they both can cause LPR symptoms.
I am also taking the PPI pill once a day, 40ml. I have been taking the pill for a month now, did not see any changes until I added these 5 items to my diet.
If you have any other recommendations, please let me know. I hope everyone gets better soon! I know how hard dealing with this disease can be.
Hey all. Diet, like others are talking is hugely important for recovery. For me, sleeping inclined it even more important. I would be a mess without doing that. I got the LINX about 1.5 years ago and it greatly helped. I had GERD and LPR. GERD is gone completely (at least the sensation of heartburn), but enough still comes up that it hits the throat. This is where inclined sleep helps, and diet is the other part of the solution. Also, High pH water helps deactivate any acid/pepsin (stomach enzyme) in your throat. This happens above about 8-8.5 pH. I use alkaline water drops, found online. Wish you all the best.
