Re: GERD Sufferers..I feel good...let me tell you why...

Bluepumkin, how much magnesium are you taking? I also began taking it as an extra supplement by itself recently, along with nexium and mastic gum. I also take DGL as a digestive supplement, but I can hardly stand the incredibly strong licorice tast (I hate licorice!) I have nearly constant pain on my right side along the bottom rib. I don't know if it's under the ribcage or the rib itself. It migrates to the left side when it really gets bad. Does that sound like what you were describing? This is good news for me about the magnesium. I am much better after beginning the above supplements about 2 weeks ago, but still struggle some. I will increase my magnesium if I need to, but I hate to take too much of it. It will help if you share with me the mg. dosage that you are taking...thanks! Mary

Re: GERD Sufferers..I feel good...let me tell you why...

I am using the Spring Valley brand sold by Walmart. This was on my way home. It was only $2.50 so I said give it a try. Its 1000mg calcium 400mg of magnesium and 15mg Zinc. If figured at the price why not give it a try.
It is the magnesium that is suppose to not be the best but it works. You take three pills a day with each meal. Occasionally when I feed some indigestion comming I take an extra one. It seems to take a while as the first week I thought it was a waste of time. Give it time to build up in your system. I am 2 weeks now and have been happy with the results. Good luck

Re: GERD Sufferers..I feel good...let me tell you why...

I will again state for the newbies to this post-Magnisium has been the answer to my prayers! I have been on it several months now and it has been great! I am feeling so good now that sometimes I forget to take it, which that is not what I want to do. I need to take it faithfully everyday to stay healthy.

Re: GERD Sufferers..I feel good...let me tell you why...

WOW!!!! I have just read all of the new posts here and it makes me feel so good to know that it is helping people with this problem. THe one thing though that I see is some of you all with daily problems are procrastinating. Just go to the store and buy some magnesium and try it. Don't over think it. It's nowhere near the price of prescription drugs. At most health food stores they have a big book that tells you all about the vitamins/herb/supplements available. If you want to read about it you can do it right there. If you're still scared to go off your ppi's take a maganesium and eat the most blandest safest foods you can think of in small quantities and eat more frequently and then if you feel like you need your ppi take it. But just try it and then let us know how it helped or didn't help. It may take time. Pslam91 I had been wondering how you were doing and I'm glad you've been singing magnesiums praises while I've gone. Good health to everyone.

Speaking of cheap I get a bottle of just some generic brand that takes two pills three times a day with food, for $2 from a dollar store, and they work fine

I am so thankful to know about Mg

Doctors don't go to school to learn nutrition and very few Medical Schools teach them very much on this subject anyway. They are taught about diseases that are caused by not getting enough of certain vitamins and minerals but that is about all except for diet used for certain problems like diabetes, heart problems etc.
Doctors are taught how to treat most medical conditdions using Drugs and surgery--- The regular Medical Profession is supported and I will make a sorta broad statement --

Drug Companies Control Most of the Medical Establishment here in the USA.

Read this about long term use of PPIs:

I suggest a magnesium product called Naturally Calm. It seems very good to me.

Re: GERD Sufferers..I feel good...let me tell you why...

Hi, I have been having alot of problems with my IBS and such. I am on Zelnorm that helps alot. I recently had a colonoscopy and he found a polyp but surely that hasn't been all my problem I wouldn't think. I haven't talked to him yet about that. June 3rd I go back. Anyway, I have had alot heart burn and indigestion. I can't take Calcium suppliments because of kidney stones. I am a major producer.
I am check on the magnesium and if it wouldn't have anything to affect my kidney stone production then I may try it. Kidney stones can be made up of so much. I believe Magnesium too I think I read. Thank you for the information. Polly

I just found this information so I am going to look into this more:
The common calcium oxalate stone can form in an acidic urine whether one takes vitamin C or not. However, if a person gets adequate quantities of B-complex vitamins and magnesium, this type of stone does not form. Any common B-complex supplement twice daily, plus about 400 milligrams of magnesium, is usually adequate.

Re: GERD Sufferers..I feel good...let me tell you why...

Hi All:

Just a quick update on myself.

Started the Mag on 05/11/04 at lunch time. Next two days had to take Tums sometimes and felt some heartburn but almost normal again. Well since the 13th I have not had to do anything else but the Mag. and it is really working!

Keep positive!

Thanks Harry and Bluepumkin what a difference you have made in my life!
