    HI Yes it will heal the help of  PPI and eating a bland diet no spicey foods of coffee and pastries and chocolates etc but it takes time not an overnight miracle it's taken me monther to heal mine and right now I'm having trouble same issues after tefluxing after a meal. It's taking its time to settle down it's been weeks now

      What's a bland diet if you have allergies to Gluten (It seems like everything is bothering my reflux lateley)? Also how long did it take to heal? My throat bothers me more than anything.

    To my understanding PPI's will only help with the symptoms. In order to heal you need to make changes like eating healthy and keeping the reflux protocol like no food hours before bed  and eating smaller meals. Plus, if you have low acid and not high acid then PPI's with time could make it worse. God Bless!

    Hi,

    My Dr put me on 1x 20mg in the morning and again in the evening for about 2/3 months. Omeprazol.

    He made no comment on my diet. Worked a treat. Inflammation was significantly reduced and I only take the PPI when in flares.

    That said, I’ve stopped all caffeine including tea eased back on the booze. I finds vigorous exercise and tumeric tablets help a lot.

    Good luck.
