Re: acid reflux

Adding to the below, the coriander does not interact with paracetamol or Nexium. In case you'd worry. It is just like a normal herb like parsley....harmless.

Re: acid reflux

Hi there,

I don't know whether this will help but something that I have noticed is that the stomach does change it's behaviour closer to the period and during. It does 'mimic' symptoms of gastritis/reflux but whether this really is the case has been difficult to establish at least in my case. Something that usually does help when the stomach acts up is the intake of foods that are 'cooling'. Try eating some cucumber, salads, papaw fresh fruits and that might help you out. I think overall the body's "heat" factor goes up in the sense.., say if we get a boil that's a sign of the "heat" factor being too high...likewise. When this "heat" factor goes up, the stomach does play a little. Food has a lot to do with these normally. Avoid heaty foods like vinegar, tomatoes, pineapple...basically the "acid" family and instead take "cooler" things like pumpkin, coconut milk curries, aubergines, bananas etc. Hope this helps you out. IF you can find there's actually a home remedy that works. You need dried coriander seeds for this. Get hold of a handful (like 3 tablespoon fulls), boil them with about 2-3 cups of water for 20 mins and once the liquid reduces to say 1-2 cups, let it cool, get rid of the seeds, put enough sugar to taste and drink only the liquid. It cools the body a LOT and helps with even things like stomach cramps. REALLY good for the stomach and throughout asian countries this is used regularly. It is totally harmless and completely safe. I've used it quite a lot since I was a kid :-) Good luck...!
