Question natural option for reflux?

Hi,
I've suffered from reflux for years, plus I have hypertension. A friend has tried to convince me to go onto a natural remedy for reflux. Apparently you can become dependent on antacids or nexium which is what I have been prescribed. I've been investigating options on the web, and found somthing about siberian pine nut oil. I want an outside opinion. Has anyone ever tried it?

Re: natural option for reflux?

Never heard of it! I have AR plus Gastritis, Diverticulitis and small Hiatal Hernia.
Took Nexium for a week. Read up on it and decided not to go that route. I started Grapefruit Seed Extract six days ago. (too early to say yet) if it will work, but no side effects.
Solofelix. p.s ( A friend could not leave PPIs after starting them. )
