Hi, I have been suffering greatly with my hernia and very recently what they call GERD, at least I assume that's what it is, and normally everything is kept completely under control with my daily lanzoprazole tablet, but as I say, lately this has not been the case and the GERD symptoms particularly were frankly awful, it would wake me in the night and I had great difficulty getting back to sleep.
Then I googled, and found that a remedy that many find helpful is a supplement of "slippery elm", and I felt that taking extra lanzoprazole too frequently wasn't medically advisable, and ranitidine were not doing anything for it, and when it comes to surgery, I have already had completely failed surgery over my prolapsed bowel and did not want to be put through anything like that, raising my hopes only to be let down, ever again, so I thought I'd try them.
They came in the post from Amazon earlier this afternoon and by now I have taken two lots of two tablets, and things feel calmer and I feel all round good, the jury is out as yet on what the effects will be tonight and whether I will be able to sleep right through without being woken by the dreaded GERD, but seems positive so far and I will keep you posted.
Has anyone tried this yet as my sister says a friend where she used to work used to swear by the old slippery elm, any thoughts?
