Avatar n tn Please read the entire bunch of messages, below here, posted on 3-29-02, by Kaytiebaybie374, entitled: "Please help me..." You will find, not only natural remedies for gastric reflux (Gastric Reflux tips without acid blockers), but comments by real people who are getting help from the natural remedies. These GER/LPR tips greatly helped (and continue to help) my husband and me, and we have never used acid blockers. Good luck to you!
Avatar n tn I can't call myself a doctor,I have studied medicine but it's people who should judge. and I have no financial activity regarding to natural remedies to advertising or sell them.All of remedies are found in nature so what am I advertising?!
Avatar n tn If you have chronic hives, you just may have a thyroid condition hyper or hypo thyroidism. This can caus chronic hives. I know I've lived with this. Control with antihistimines, get help for the thyroid, for example getting the proper amount of iodine in your diet might cure you, but keep in mind too much iodine can give you the same problems, even cause hyperthyroidism. Eating wheat products/gluten can aggrevatate the condition.
Avatar n tn I have had anxiety that seemed associated with heartburn too. I treated the heartburn with 1/2 tsp of baking soda in 1/2 glass warm water,(it will cause you to burp because it is neutralizing the acid) and the anxiety seemed to lessen.
Avatar n tn She goes into greater detail about DGL and other natural remedies. Apparently she and her husband have found great relief from DGL. Now I still do take Tums occasionally but not like candy and now they actually work on the extra acid whereas before I could take several tums and my pain would just last for hours no matter what I did. As long as the DGL has no hidden side effects (Which I have not found any) I am going to keep using it.
Avatar m tn Please be very careful about entrusting a clerk at GNC that is paid $7/hour with your health, as suggested above. The "detox" and GI cleansing remedies some recommend have been around for a while as part of "alternative medicine". You can generally read more about them on
Avatar f tn I prefer natural remedies personally but I will do whatever for them to go away for good. Has anyone had relief from doing a Total Detoxification program at all? A remember reading a gentleman's log and he had gone to India for AYURVEDA treatment.. i can't seem to find his log anymore though. He left a website I would appreciate any help or information that anyone can give me. I know how you all feel out there! It's not fun. Best of Luck everyone. Thanks again.
Avatar n tn Like all of you it starts with the disgusting burp, followed by chronic stomach pain, heartburn, vomiting, sometimes the runs, most of the time I also break out in hives. The day after its all over I get severe pain in my back and sides. The worst bout I have had was when my daughter was about 3 and it was coming out both ends for a week. Worse thing was we were travelling and I thought at the time I had gotten food poisoning from eating McDonalds.
Avatar n tn Perhaps you might want to try the health store for natural remedies. I have also read recently about Americans having more gastic problems when they are in other countries. Your body may be accustomed to the American way of food and built up a tolerance since childhood, eating foods in another country could have caused an allergic reaction to the body or it could be autoimmune.
Avatar m tn For the past i would say four days ive had this sinus pressure and pain mostly on bridge of nose,around eyes and cheek bones and i put some light up my left nostril and noticed towards more the back in my nose along the side wall, is all red and swollen, but yet when i touch it doesnt feel like any mass or anything,weird i think!. anyways i am a big believer of natural cures and home remedies so i have taken some decongestion meds and have washed my nose out with a neti pot.
Avatar m tn Signs of Deficient Stomach Acid Gas, bloating and burping shortly after a meal could be lack of HCl Constipation Diarrhea Feeling of fullness or food not digesting Heartburn and/or gastric relux (sometimes too much HCl but most often not enough) Bad breath Foul smelling stools Loose stools in the early morning Food allergies Dialated blood vessles on the cheeks and nose - Rosacea Pernicious anemia or iron deficiency Anal Itching Nausea especially after taking vitamins and minerals Weak or cra
Avatar n tn I agree totally with what DAW said! I also suggest that you take a look at a message I posted on 12/7/01, on the "GERD On-line" forum, called, "Some GASTRIC REFLUX TIPS we use". These natural remedies help my husband's and my gastric reflux, VERY MUCH! Gastric reflux can also cause asthma, and other respiratory problems, like "Vocal Cord Dysfunction" (VCD)! Do continue to get checked by a doc, to make sure no more damage is occurring in your esophagus.
447063 tn?1316564530 Been to the hospital With Bloating, Sore Stomach, And Severe Stomach Pain Left Side Behind Rib Cage. The only thing that came up was transcending colon left side was slightly swollen. They put me on Flagyl and it didn't work. Dr. said it wasn't Colitis. Did Upper GI didn't see anything, did biopsy and I am waiting on results. Could it be Gastritis? It is a constant pressure under left rib case and the pain is horrible.
Avatar m tn Nux vomica has a specific action on the digestive system. It is one of the best remedies for heartburn, ulcers, cramps, hiccups, food poisoning and constipation. It also has a detoxifying effect on the liver." You might also ask your doctor about Dexilant. It is the only antacid that has worked for me. Nux vomica has also been recommended for colitis, IBS and Crohn's disease. Hope this info is helpful...
Avatar n tn I have been given omeprazol, and mesalazine tablets and a couple others to try and reduce the inflammation on the stomach lining Up to now i havent had any improvements whatsoever, and was thinking of a natural remedy such as juicing. i have seen various postings from a person named Jennifer, was this your condition also???? i mean gastritis???
Avatar m tn oh ya in case nobody has seen my posts before? i am a 25 year old male.. Am i too young for something serious yet?
Avatar n tn *A feeling of a lump in your throat *Too much throat mucus *Excessive throat clearing *Chronic cough *Trouble swallowing *Hoarseness *Heartburn What Is Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR) ? The acid that is normally produced in your stomach is usually prevented from coming back up or from refluxing into your esophagus all the way into your throat or larynx (voice box) by a band of muscle at the entrance of the stomach that is known as the lower esphageal sphincter.
Avatar m tn I totally agree that this probably is GERD. You can sure try the natural remedies such as drinking milk or chewing on Tums, or avoiding all spicy/bubbly/alcoholic/caffeinated bevarages as well. However, on an off note....I'm sure this isn't your problem, but best to just be sure. Is there any mold in your house? I only ask because of this....a few years ago, I was helping clean a flooded basement. I was down there for hours pulling water out of some carpets to help a friend of mine out.
Avatar f tn There are a lot of natural remedies that can help. Some are helped by organic apple cider vinegar with the mother still in it, which can rebalance your acid/alkaline state. So a lot of stuff out there to try to get to the bottom of this. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Thanks to a bad doctor I ended up with chronic shingles, no doctor I saw EVER tested my endocrine system, (or told me what Acyclovir does to prevent outbreaks so I never took it), and it crashed 14 years later which made the shingles run constantly. I suffered with that for a couple of years with no meds (when your endocrine system crashes you are too fatigued to even feel worry or to go get help). During that time the nerve pain started.
Avatar m tn Having too little acid will have very similar symptoms to too much, so the only way to know is seeing a GI dr and having a ph test done, or a barium swallow. Good luck, I agree natural remedies first if they work : ) DO u know the root cause of ur gerd...mine is a hiatal hernia...I need meds along with a modified diet,....I was able to go many yrs with no meds....but a flareup I do take meds and watch my diet...but it is possible.
Avatar f tn Refluxed stomach acid that touches the lining of the esophagus can cause heartburn. Also called acid indigestion, heartburn is an uncomfortable, burning feeling in the midchest, behind the breastbone, or in the upper part of the abdomen—the area between the chest and the hips. What are the symptoms of GERD? The main symptom of GERD is frequent heartburn, though some adults with GERD do not have heartburn.
Avatar m tn I don't feel any mucus, post-nasal, congestion, lump in throat, but at night, I guess I ma refluxing because in the morning, I feel mucus and a lump in the throat. Itgets better as the day goes on though. Any natural remedies to do for nighttime reflux?
Avatar n tn Valtrex can take effect within two or three days. Believe it or not, the over-the-counter heartburn medicine cimetidine (which you probably know as Tagamet) can also help lessen the pain and intensity of the rash. Take 200 mg three times a day with meals, plus 400 mg at bedtime. None of these drugs are perfect solutions. Antiviral medications are burdened by potential side effects like nausea, headache, vomiting, dizziness, and abdominal pain.

Avatar m tn I'll have to check out some of the natural remedies you have suggested. I would LOVE to find a remedy for my chronic heartburn that works. On a side note, I have taken Effexor in the past (the name brand version), and did not have any problems with it, other than the brain zaps when I weened myself off the medication (although they lasted for several months). So, I am guessing the issues with the generic is that something else in it is affecting me.
Avatar n tn I am sick of the heartburn, reflex, and the acid taste in my mouth. It keeps me up for up to two hours a night. I am also nauseous every day. I would just like to know if there are any treatment (new or not) that you would recommend. I have to keep missing days of school because I am too sick, or tired to go.
Avatar f tn However, I am in a lot of pain now and need something to help as soon as possible, and the natural remedies take a long time before one can feel results. My neurologist prescribed Cymbalta for me yesterday, 30 mg to start and then 2 weeks later if needed increase dosage to 60mg, it is prescribed for fibromyalgia, and as an anti-depressant, and also supposedly helps with anxiety, but may create insomnia - can't win.
1551963 tn?1302296332 A few months ago I got lightheaded while driving on the highway, 80mph. Turns out I hadn't eaten anything for 6 hours...but my body never told me it was hungry. I kind of counted on the stomach to make a noise or something. Never happened. So empty stomach causes symptoms, overeating causes them...the only thing that helps is drinking plenty of water. What all have you tried to diagnose? I heard the Vagus nerve might be to blame.
Avatar n tn Have you tried and DGL or other natural chewables ? Have you lost weight ? How long does your heartburn last after a meal ?
