Thanks!

When I am having issues with my gerds I will walk. For me anything that makes me bend, lay down or crunch only makes it worst, especially if you still have food in your stomach.

It does stink... once you figure out your triggers it will help a lot. My triggers are fresh lemons and limes(all citrus),tomato based anything and caffeine and carbonated sodas...once I eat to much of those I am down for days eating plain foods and drinking apple juice and water. You would think I could loose weight with all of the restrictions.

Yep for baking soda. All of last week I had this tightness in my chest
and as the Nexium doesn't seem to work, got a teaspoon of baking soda
and water, and soon was able to burp and get relief.

So does Baking Soda really work to treat acid indigestion?? I hadn't thought of that, but it certainly makes sense.

I've had GERD for 8 years. Was down to about 115# at my worst as I could not digest any food. I learned to use digestive enzymes, Betaine HCL and Omegazymes, 2 each per bottle, each meal. I have to stay on a strict GERD diet and never eat 3-4 hours before bed time. I use a contour, hard foam pillow at about 45 degree angle. My physical therapist who was tied into a well known hospital worked on my spine and stopped the GERD for about a month and she told me to use a hard foam core round roller available at sports stores and massage about 1&1/2 in on either side of my spine every day for about 10 minutes, and also hang from a high up bar for 30 seconds every single time I think of it as well as have work on my spine, by an orthobionomist, who also does swedish massage and she helps keep my esophagus closed. I can't have any of the fun goodies like dairy, caffeine, sugar, pain killers, I do manage to keep my esophagus under control if I adhere strictly to a GERD protocol. and get my spine worked on. Also, I take a lot of probiotics. I have a Hiatal Hernia and GERD. My colon closed from adhesions from a myomectomy and had to have a colon resection. I'm going to try all you guyes ideas on Salba, chia sseeds, cilantro, coriander and ginger. Thanks so much for all the ideas. I do love indian food. emoticon emoticon emoticon

In case anyone is interested, "Salba" is basically a company name for white chia seeds. You can buy Chia seeds in almost any health food or whole foods store, and generic Chia seeds are ALOT less expensive than "Salba", and you pretty much get the same nutrients.

Hi,
I just started an new thread today about Salba. By complete accident I discovered a seed called salba. You can buy it by seed, ground up or in other products like granola bars. I t looks a little bit like flax seeds. I noticed after adding it to yogurt and soups that the burning and shortness of breath in my right lung (due to acid) was completely gone. When I researched online I read that salba expands to 12 times it's size and absorbs the acid in your stomach and that this is why it helps with GERD. I've been taking it for two weeks now and find it's still working very well. Hope this helps you as much as it has me. It's been extremely frustrating trying all the different medications and diets over these last few years with limited success.

I didn't even think about cilantro. My husband's Indian and I guess that might be why we never got heartburn or acid reflux when we ate Indian food because cilantro is always in there. I'll have to make a "tea" and steep some leaves in it. ummmm may be good with some fresh ginger too... Thanks for the posts! I've learned much today...

I also believe in baking soda. It works right away. I always keep some fresh ginger in the fridge and have a little piece of that. Does anyone know anything about diverticulosis.

Thank you for that. Baking soda would work good as it would help neutralise the acid. At the moment I have some Zantac and Quick-Eze in the medicine cupboard but I shall remember that. Thank you.

When acid in stomach gets severe, whether I have something else in the house or not, I use 1 teaspoon of baking soda to one-half cup of water. Helps in seconds! Works wonders!

Hi,

Just joined finding the comments quite interesting.
I was diagnosed with Barretts in November. Seems to be very common in our family. Have had two uncles die after Barretts turned to cancer.

I keep gum with me every where. by my bed at work etc.
When you have nothing else gum will stop the acid.
Other than that I take the generic Losec. and keep Tums on hand.Have for years. My doctor gave me a free supply of Nexium to try. Our health plan doesn't cover it yet so I will stay with Losec.

I always make sure I have something in the house. Besides my prescription generic Prilosec, I use liquid antacid if I need it, and I always keep a bottle of Tums by bed if I need something in the middle in the night. That usually calms it down enough so I can go back to sleep.

I was a bad girl and ate some chocolate just before bedtime last night. I had a dreadful night. Just after midnight I woke with horrendous heartburn. I got up and found I had nothing in to relieve the heartburn. I tried a drink of milk but this only gave me a bit of relief for 30 minutes before I was up again. I think I spent more time awake than asleep. What do you take if you've got nothing in? Have you found anything that works for you?

Very interesting! I think I will have to look for some cilantro, sounds like you can add it to a lot of different things. I had no idea cilantro and coriander were from the same plant.

Coriander
Coriander, known in its green, leafy form as cilantro or Chinese parsley, has been used throughout history as a remedy for acid indigestion, neuralgia, rheumatism, and toothaches. Humans made use of coriander as early as 1550 B.C. for both culinary and medicinal purposes, and there are records of its use by the Greek physician Hippocrates around 400 B.C. There is some research that shows cilantro can aid in the elimination of harmful metals from the body, including mercury, lead, and cadmium. Coriander contains 20 chemicals that naturally kill bacteria and help control body odor. Also, the herb's essential oil treats indigestion and excess gas.

Healthy From Top to Bottom
The seed part is called coriander, and cilantro is the green-leaf portion. You can reap all the important benefits by using both to add flavor and variety to your meals. Cilantro leaves can be used to garnish salads or flavor soups and salsas, while ground coriander tastes delicious with stewed meats or grilled fish.
