Do you take any other acid suppression medicine, gavason, carafate or supplements since you are off PPI completely?

David Tan
I eat a banana in the morning everyday since last week when I stopped my PPI. Maximum 2 bananas a day.

Nate Bruneau
Any idea why this works?

Kasey King
Nate Bruneau yes it balances the ph in the stomach.

Sophie Chalklen
Banana is the worst thing for me.

Sophie Chalklen
Kasey King it gives me terrible mucus in my throat after I eat it. My symptoms must be different to yours. I have LPR. I've read that bananas are very mucus forming.

Kasey King
Sophie Chalklen oh i get some mucous, just drink lots of water.

Sophie Chalklen
Kasey King I drink ginger tea all day which helps a bit.

Sophie Chalklen
Kasey King really??? Do you find it ok? I would love to be able to drink that.

Kasey King
Im tired of being fed ppi

Kayla Rae
I know I am too. :( I will have to try that when I'm having a flare up!

Kasey King
Kayla Vonckx no not when flare up. Do it as a daily regimen. Organic bananas

Kayla Rae
Oh every day? What is the difference between organic bananas and regular bananas again?

Kasey King
Kayla Vonckx organic uses no pesticide.

Kasey King
Yes I had very severeeeee gerd. Started banana regimen one week ago. NO gerd, no acid. Amazing.

Kasey King
It has same ph as apple cider vinegar and tastes better!

Kayla Rae
Wow! I really need to try that. Yeah, people keep telling me to try apple cider vinegar but I also heard it tastes awful!

Suzi Kaufert
I Put the apple cider vinegar in a glass of apple juice. I can't drink it just water.

Kayla Rae
Ohhh everyone told me to put it in just water. Never thought about putting it in something else. Do you drink that once a day?

TerriLynne Brady
Baking soda in water, gas x or gavascon over the counter, diet eliminate spicy , red meats which are harder to digest, tomatoes sauces are acidic, avoid onions garlic common triggers, drinking alkaline water.

Kayla Rae
Yeah red meats aren't too bad for me but spicy things, tomatoes sauces and onion garlic is a no go including citrus like orange juice. But baking soda in water is something I have around the house that I can try! :).

Chris Moss
baking soda in water but it was so vile i couldn't drink it and it made me puke.

Kayla Rae
Oh man :( yeah I heard the apple cider vinegar is gross in water too. A lot of things seem to help but taste disgusting.

Vickie Santullo
I had been on RX Nexium 40 mg 2 x a day for years. I started taking plant based supplements 2 months ago and no longer need Nexium!

Kasey King
Yep its true, no one really needs medicine. Im living proof. I was so bad puking up to ten times daily for six months. Thrown on ppi, had allergic reaction. Read up on natural gerd remedy. Banana. No more gerd.

Kayla Rae
Yeah as I got older the gerd got worse and I was told after my last test that the cells in my esophagus are starting to change and that's going to become barrettes esophagus more than likely soon. And I want something other than constantly shoving Rx down my throat so this helps a lot :)

TerriLynne Brady
Vickie Santullo what supllements do you use. Ty.

Kayla Rae
I'd like to know as well :).

Vickie Santullo
TerriLynne Brady and Kayla Vonckx the main ones are Probiotics and BioCleanse.

Stephanie Parks
Mine are: Probiotics, digestive enzymes, DGL, Pure Organic Aloe Vera Juice, and Sauerkraut.

Wu Ming
No cigarette alcoholic beverages. Eat smaller meal and avoid lying down after meal. Last meal 2-3hr before bed time.

Angie John Preston
If you don't already, then diet change helps. Avoid any common trigger foods which includes vinegar.

Steve A. Messina
Tried apple cider vinegar. Caused me the worst reflux pain I've ever had in my entire life. Never trying again. I also tried apples, but that always upset my stomach and gave a little burn. I tried bananas and the texture of it turned my lower GI into a garbage disposal unit. Baking soda had me bloated and burping for days so that didn't work. It felt like the acid was being pushed up to my throat. Never happening again. All natural cures are all severe triggers for me.

Olga Nugara Steve
have you tried Swedish bitters? I'm going to try them on my son.

Estrella Conwi Santos
Tried boiled guava leaves with a little bit of ginger. Boiled atleast 10 pcs leaves of guava and a little bit of ginger for 10 minutes with 2 cups of water. Then strain it with a clean cloth or handkerchief before you drink.
