Discussions that mention aspirin

Alternative Medicine board


This may surpise you, but I found after years of acid reflux that I had several food intolerances: dairy, gluten, corn, the sulfides in carbonated drinks, and winter squash. When I eliminated these from my diet, the acid reflux went away as well as other awful, more obvious allergic symptoms.
An alternative quick fix is Alka Seltzer Gold. Has no aspirin or cold medicine in it, just some minerals to ease stomach acidity. Or I get the same help from a 500 mg magnesium capsule.
I hope you get some immediate relief from one of these. And then explore possible causes: low stomach acid? not enough friendly bacteria in the gut? food intolerances? heart problems?
