Tired of natural cure claims...DONT WORK!!!!
I have Gerd, a hiatal hernia, and recent endoscopy showed erosions in esophagus.
I am one of those people who does not eat junk food, soda, desert, sugary items, red meat, fatty food, fried foods,etc. I eat a very healthy organic diet. Im not overweight, I dont drink, I dont smoke, I exercise, and this Gerd wont go. Im so tired of websites saying "cure your acid reflux naturally with diet, etc" I tried ALL of it and it DID NOT WORK!!!! Apple Cider a complete Joke, I have erosions in my esophagus, so it just burned them even more. Tea, Honey, Aloe, Acid ease, Papaya, etc etc etc. The only thing that helps is a PPI... I dont like taking medicine but I take my Prevacid daily to help prevent Gerd. Recently after a upper endoscopy (pillcam) I was told I need to move it up to twice a day as I have erosions on just one pill, and I am happily doing it to further prevent my esophagus from future damage and barretts, etc.
I am so tired of people complaining about these drugs...They are absolutely saving people from potential harm and even potential cancer of the esophagus. I am a very natural person, I get acupuncture, see a TCM (traditional chinese medicine) for issues that arise, and even they say I need to be on the PPI!!!
I, have a hiatal hernia, so no matter what I do, acid can leak up. I really feel like people are so against the drug companies, which I can understand, but these drugs also do alot of good for some of us.
Anyone else out there feel like I do, that these medications are necessary for some people, and that there are so many people that perhaps dont know what it is really like to have that burning pain in your back, chest and neck so severe that it brings you to tears.
