Achalasia exercises and swallowing techniques?

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi folks, a barium swallow test has revealed that the cause of my issues is achalasia (caused by my auto immune condition). It's going to be a while till I can get to see a specialist to discuss the treatment options. In the meantime, life is a misery. What can I do to help myself? Thanks.

    See a couple of other posts for suggestions on a swallowing technique, as well as taking chelated magnesium. The combination of those two has solved a 10-year issue for me.
