    Hi,

    I live in Melbourne (Australia)I was diagnosed in May 2016 and prescribed pariet for 6 months. Later in Nov 2016 had one more biopsy and the diagnose was same. This time I got worried and took the matter seriously. I refused to go with PPI as it doesn't cure you. It just reduces the acid level. I started to avoid food and drinks causing acidity. I stopped drinking all liquids (alcohol, packed juices, soft drinks etc) except water and milk. Started eating food without garlic, tomato paste and tomatoes itself, all types of fried, fatty and junk food,  at evening eat only cooked vegetables or a luke warm glass of milk, reduced the quantity of intake. And followed Ayurvedic food recommendations for Vatta-Pitta. In addition every morning 30ml of Aloe Vera juice with water 1 hour before the breakfast.

    Plus added every morning 30min Pranayama Yoga.

    And all it worked.

    In Feb2017 also did Panchkarma cleaning in Kerala.

    Now on 27/07/17 I had the endoscopy and biopsy done and it was found that I no longer have Barret's.

    I think both the diet and Yoga worked nicely.

    Wish you all the best and if you need any further advice, feel free to contact me
