Hi everyone, I've had the most horrendous GERD symptoms for over a year and have to go back for endoscopies every 6 months with my next one due in a few weeks. I've taken everything ending in 'zole' since November 2014 plus over the counter medications and herbal treatments. I've had advice from a nutrional expert and even been to see a Chinese medicine 'doctor' who advised me to take raw potato juice every morning for 3 days which is actually quite vile !! It didnt really work for me but it may just work for some !! I've always eaten healthily but have my triggger foods like most people with this problem - alcohol, coffee, pastry, fried food - the usual culprits. Anyway, moving on - a couple of weeks ago I started taking a super vitamin B complex and doing daily exercise including yoga and some weight bearing exercises. Since doing this I've noticed a big difference in my symptoms - I was a bit wary of taking the B vits in case it triggered the GERD but it has actually soothed it by about 75% so far. Also the exercise keeps me calm as stress is a huge factor for me in managing the condition. I know this won't work for everyone but if it can help some of you then its worth the post. I also researched online how vitamin B might help GERD and wasn't surprised to read that in group tests 95% of people taking it found their symptoms reduced compared to 65% of the group taking Omeprozole. I also swear by centaurium taken 5 minutes before eating to help with digestion.
