Natural Remedies

Edited , 8 users are following.

Has anyone tried any over the counter natural remedies for GERD? Slippery Elm? Peppermint? Probiitics? I have extreme heartburn nightly with stopped up nasal passages and post nasal drip.


Thank you,

    Hi I have only started to see some improvement now. i have been having acid reflux symptoms since October 2019. since October I have had the following:


    digestive enzymes

    on and off slippery elm

    raising the bed head

    only home cooked bland diet

    avoiding the culprits

    alkaline diet.

    hope this helps

    prayers 🙏

      Hi Pamela 533 yes the Alkaline diet which I was unconvinced of had helped me alot. You can pick and choose the ingredients of your choice as long as they are alkaline and have a high ph level. It helps if you like cooking. Im trying different recepies and try and eat raw and unprocessed foods. Raising the head of your bed also helps. I am not sure which bit has helped me the most as I had to make all the changes I possibly could to feel better. I am only taking gaviscon advance at night in terms of the medication. I have made my portions smaller and it has been hard reducing portion size. You can send me a private message if you have more questions.
