I will try the cider vinegar and organic honey and see how it goes. My colnoscopy/endoscopy has now been rescheduled for August 17 (should have been July 26).emoticon

I am interested in the honey diet and anything natural to help with the GERD and a bland diet. If you have any ideas or recipes, please forward them to me. I could use any and all help I can get. I was happy to find this site because other people on SparkPeople didn't know what to do. Please send your information to michele270 and feel free to check out my page. Thank You.

organic apple cider vinegar taken 3 times daily and with honey will help with the acid reflux.

This may be a little off-track, but since you have Barrett's, is there a chance you're taking any type of Osteoporosis meds? I've read that proton inhibitors (nexium, etc.) can cause bone loss. If osto develops and actonel or like product is taken, that can cause Barrett's esophagus. If you're on Actonel or other similar meds, discuss Barrett's with your dr.

I saw a specialist yesterday at he hospital (waited since October) and now will have a colonoscopy /endoscopy in July. Public hospitals are really stretched and guess I shouldn't complain. I have been on nexium for over a year now and I hate it.

I find that eating ground salba works really well with me. I've tried everything else..prescriptions and all and discovered that salba worked by chance. I was taking it while on prevacid because of it's high calcium content. And discovered that when I was
off of the prevacid I no longer got the burning sensation in my stomach. After doing some research I read that it helps people with GERD because salba expands to six time it's size and absorbs the acid in your stomach. I add it to soups, yogurt or apple sauce. Hope this helps you. I know how frustrating it can be.

Hi
I am on the medifast now. I was having so much trouble with all of the diets (weightwatchers, south beach, YOAD)because of all the vegetables. WIth Gerd, the raw foods and soy make it much harder for the stomach. I also found out that the prevacid/nexium pills make the acid worse long term. So, since being on the medifast program at the advice of my doctor, I have not had to take one prevacid and do not have heartburn or the horrible GERD burning and indigestion. I highly recommend it. Some of the foods are horrible tasting, so contact me at tallgaL10502 at yahoo dot com or you can IM me at tallgaL10502 on AIM and yahoo, if you want more info. Good Luck

I've got both conditions. I've been advised to do The South Beach Diet and have been taking Aciphex for about a year now. The Aciphex is great and the diet, with some work, can work well too. I've just undergone an ablation procedure in hopes of getting those Barrett cells back to normal. My doc has advised that I can have a laproscopic procedure to "repair" the hernia too. That's somewhere down road if at all.

Not sure our original posters are still here but thought I'd chime in. Interested in honey diet too. Doing a hybrid WW and South Beach thing right now. Even considering medifast. Sorry if I've gone too far afield.

I have been recently diagnosed with Hiatus Hernia and GERD and am having all sorts of problems. Can you tell me what the honey diet is or where I can find it?

I am taking Pariet and Domperidone and I hope it isn't making my symptoms worse.

I was diagnosed with GERD and Barretts Esophagus a year ago. I did not have any symptoms except for bloated stomach and burping. SInce the endoscopy I have had nothing but problems. I have read that taking the prevacid the dr. gave me, makes the condition worse. Other than DGL, has anyone heard of any "natural cures"? I know diet and weight loss is needed (I am about 40 pounds overweight) and if I stick to the diet I feel ok. If not, it takes days to recover. I like the honey idea that I read about on the boards here.
