Acid reflux and Barretts are quite a combination. I have jaw problems and will have bone grafts. I wish I would have known more about these two diseases when I was younger!

I am on my way to better health!

I am working on getting organic foods in my food program. I have a grocery store about 2 blocks away. The farmer's market is 3 blocks away with an organic chicken, turkey, and egg stand and a wild fish stand. I am within a 30 minute drive of a Whole Foods store. The food takes great and much fresher.

I would like to do organtic, but don't have it available close to where I live, would have to drive at least 80 to 100 miles for the nearest store.

I have just recently been diagnosed with Barretts and am still learning. Did you start eating organic when you found out that you had Barretts? or did you eat regular for a while and then switch to organic? I am just wandering if it is the organic or just the change in eating habits?

What do you mean visualization?

Besides eating organic whenever possible, I also did a lot of visualization to try to heal my Barretts Esophagus. I don't know if that helped but it's always worth a try.

I just got the pathology report from my endoscopy last week and it states "no Barretts." My last two endoscopys showed I had Barretts Esophagus. I thougth this was an irreversable condition ? I wonder if the organic food I have been eating the last 6 months could have something to do with this latest diagnosis ? I was about to give up the organic thing just because it's so expensive to buy groceries, but now I'm thinking I should stick with it. It's worth it if my Barrett's is really gone. Has anyone ever heard of Organic food curing Barretts Esophagus ?
