Homeopathy and Health Forum
help for severe acid reflux and heartburI was suffering acid reflux (just felt a bit of burning in the mouth) for about 7 months. Went to a naturopath and she prescribed me Unda homeopathic remedies # 1, 43, and 210 and advised me to finish this product. Half way through I noticed I was developing a lot of gas however she told me to continue. After 2 1/2 weeks I developed severe acid reflux and heartburn and have been suffering since. No naturopath seems to know what went wrong or what to do now. Has this ever happened to anybody else. It has now been 5 weeks and I'm in constant agony-at wits end. Can anybody give me any advise. Thankyou in advance. Angela
