Anyone have reflux that gets into throat? My Dr scoped me and saud evidence of it w inflammation and swelling. As it seems a little harder to swallow things. Sometimes little bits get stuck.

The issue is I do not want to go on a ppi. Been there done that. Had been on for 6 yrs. It took me over a month to wean off. And my dumbass Dr, then, never told me you're only supposed to be on it for 1 mo tops. As it can cause a s load of problems. (prolly bc he's an md and is clueless Af, as usually are)

So I need to keep the stuff out of my espoogus until my fibroid has shrunk, which I'm working on with another Dr. My kinesiologist suggested baking soda daily, which I started yesterday. Any other things, natural things, that have worked on a temp basis?

over on healing well there is a member called astroman who is familiar with reflux and natural treatments

he swears by d-limonene as a natural way to coat and protect and thereby reduce the inflammation in the oesophagus allowing it to heal

he also advocates raising the head of the bed by 4-6inches to help keep the acid in the stomach while you sleep - as it can tend to creep up again at night

maybe pop over and ask the question - he is a regular there

Baking soda daily can also be problematic. Look it up.

For my nephew, they gave him aloe vera juice and coconut water to help soothe his esophagus.
