      Hi Linda. 

      Good on you for trying it, if it helps one person iv told, I'm happy.

      yes prob only have one spoonful a day at the moment. 

      I take mine before going to bed because it's my worst time for getting reflux.

      hope your tummy gets used to it, and it helps the acid reflux.

      let me know how you get on with it.

    Yes, I've learned that baking soda helps me with my reflux. Take a tablespoon of baking soda and it soothes the pain and discomfort.

      Iv never dare try baking soda.

      Tried apple cider vinegar but that didn't agree with me.

      So that's why I went for manuka honey. Seems to help.

      Hi.

      It's a honey thats produced in New Zealand,

      Think that's why it's so expensive over here.

      The higher the number the better it is for you. Google it, and it

      tell you all the benifits of taking it.

      Interesting read

      Yes, it has antibiotic benefits with no side effects.  IT has to be from New Zealand 15+ or more, the higher the stronger.  10+ good for maintenance.

      You can get it at amazon but like Julie said is very expensive.

      I have mine last thing at night so it's not getting watered down.

      also if you want to sooth the oesophagous put it on a bit of bread it slides down slower coating iv read somewhere. ?? 

      It may take a week to notice the difference. 

      Keep me posted on how you get on

      Julie, just noticed most MH on that site does not say UMF.  It does say active ingredient 15-20-24+ But they are not certified UMF 15-20-24+  Just my 2 cents. ;-)

      You can see the difference in price from a regular 15+ and UMF 15+.   Right now the UMF 15+ cost me $89.87 US Dollar at that site (with shipping) Which is almost $45 for one bottle. I pay $42 in amazon for the same, free shipping with prime. If you get free shipping then is a god deal for you, as for me is not.
