This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
There are many homeopath medicines that can help this condition. It is therefore very important that I get all the information about you.
The first time you noticed this was after eating different spices food, but this suffering arose not there and then. It must have evolved over time.
Often, these disorders caused by emotional problems or abuse of different remedies.

Can you say a little about your mood.
Have you experienced something tragic in your life, divorce, deaths, accidents, broken hearts, etc.
What do you like the best, sweet or salty?
Hot or cold?
Is there anything that relieves?
Something that makes it worse?
Say something about your physical health.
Is there anything you fear, fear of something specific?
Which side of your body do you feel are most vulnerable or most pain?
Something else that you would like to mention, everything is relevant.
Do you know your blood type?

Please visit the link below of which I have copied the last post.

You can use the same remedies I have prescribed which have given relief to many hundreds perhaps many thousands of fellow sufferers like you who were not cured by their medical doctors and later their classical homeopaths.

The soon discovered that the remedies that I have prescribed Nat Phos 6x dose 2-4 tablets taken after each of 3 meals and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily has helped to cure them.


Re: question for joe re: gerd remedyFrom Joe De Livera on 2009-12-24I have been away from this Forum since 2006 and note that many patients have addressed their request for help to overcome their GERD to me.

I am now back and if anyone on this thread wishes to have my assistance to overcome their GERD please feel free to ask for help.

I am copying a post I have just made to help a patient who has discovered that my therapy has helped him in a few days. This thread is of interest as it can help anyone in distress from GERD today.


Re: Acid refluxFrom Joe De Livera on 2009-12-19Nat Phos 6x and Arnica are remedies that I have promoted on this and other Homeopathic Forums for the treatment of GERD for the last 10 years or more. These remedies have helped many hundreds, perhaps thousands throughout the world to overcome their ailment.

You state:
'The Nat Phos helps a little but there is still quite a bit of heartburn even after taking this. My voice is affected due to this.'

It is possible that the reason why you have not responded as others have done to this therapy is because your case may be acute due to the chronic reflux of the gastric juices in your stomach up to your throat. I note that you have been using Protonix which is a Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI) which has recently been found to be the cause of severe Psychiatric problems as it has been found to have irreversible side effects on the brain. What is more, it is also habit forming and many patients have been hooked to these many brands of PPI's which were introduced about 15 years ago and treated as the ultimate remedy for the treatment of GERD.

You can increase the number of tablets of NP that you take up to 6 which you can take immediately after a meal 3 times daily. Some patients have reported that this large dosage can cause a mild diarrhoea and if this occurs in your case, the dosage can be reduced.

You can also take Arnica 30c in the Wet dose 3 times daily. Please follow the instructions that I have given on making the Wet dose on:

Order the Liquid Arnica in Ethanol from the ABC store as it is possible that the reason why you have not responded may be because you are using the Dry Pelletsto make the Wet dose and these are not as effective.

Please report your response after you have used this therapy for 3 days.Report post to moderator Re: Acid refluxFrom argnit123 on 2009-12-23Mr Livera - I have taken the prescribed dosages of Nat Phos and Arnica for three days. I started with 6 pills of Nat Phos but I felt much better when I reduced it to 5 pills. It might be a coincidence, but when I was taking 6 pills, my heartburn was worse. Now, I am having intermittent times of having no heartburn at all, which was not the case before. One thing I noticed is that I have been retaining water, but it could be due to PMS (seems a little early though). Other than this, I have had no issues with taking this medicine. I have also noticed that my allergies are better without taking any allergy medicines. Should I continue to take the same dosage? Please advise. Thank you very much for all your help. I hope I can be heartburn free without having to take any allopathic medicines.Report post to moderator Re: Acid refluxFrom Joe De Livera on 2009-12-24I note that you have already obtained some relief within a week with Nat Phos which you have used to replace the Protonix which you have been taking for a whole year. You must understand that all the PPI's have been found to cause serious side effects especially on the brain and other organs. You can Google PPI to read the whole story.

I hope that you understand that you have addressed your ailment on this Forum in the nick of time as the fact that your voice was affected denotes that your Acid Reflux was at a serious level which would have eventually lead to Barrett's Esophagus which Medicine cannot cure other than by surgery but by that time it is usually too late and Cancer may have set in by that time.

It is now up to you to take the Nat Phos tablets according to need and you will be the best judge of the number of tablets that you must use to be comfortable after a meal. You may like to know that Nat Phos is perfectly safe to be used for long periods unlike the PPI Protonix you were using.
Do not eat large meals and restrict yourself to small meals which you can eat more often. Do not drink water with a meal as this promotes the reflux of gastric juice upwards. Do not go to bed at night immediately after dinner as this will also send the acid up to your throat. Avoid all fatty food and Alcohol which can also be considered as a poison in your case. No Chillie hot food and preserved meats like sausages, ham and bacon as they contain Saltpeter which will cause further damage.

Remember that the dual therapy Arnica 30 and Nat Phos 6x I have prescribed is essential for your future health. The Arnica will help to rebuild the inner tissue of the Esophagus which is not designed to cope with gastric juice which is highly corrosive as it is designed to digest food in the stomach and has already digested the inner lining tissue of your Esophagus which is now in a very delicate state today and will take time to heal.

You can add Ferr Phos 6x dose 2 tablets taken 3 times daily to accelerate the cure and help the Arnica to rebuild the tissue.

I have carefully read your post, and consulting with my homeopathic literature. I think I'm about to find the right remedy.
A few questions before I decide what medication you require.
1. Do you sighing or taking deep, involuntary breath?
2. Bites fingernails or chew the skin inside the mouth? Or similar things.
3. Drinking a lot of tea, or smoke?
4. You talked about a lump / ball feeling in the upper stomach, that feeling worse after you have eaten? Can you also feel a 'ball-like' feeling in other parts of the body?
You can also call it a constriction?
5. Can you get ideas that you have cancer?

Important that you answer all questions carefully.

Parakletos. last decade
Hello Dr.
1.I do not take involuntary breath.
2.Rarely i chew the skin inside the mouth.
3.I drink tree rarely may be one time in a month & i never smoke.
4.Yes it may be called constriction.
5.No i do not have cancer,cause in Biopsy test there was no sign of cancer.
For your information now i am taking arsenicum alb 30.After this acidity occurs in the evening,food particles do not come in my mouth,but acid with burping comes.chest pain is now dull.But acidity regularly occurs.I need to take one pantroprazole in three days with the homeopathy also,to reduce the acidity.Coughing also less.Please tell me if i will be cure & able to eat everything?Will i be able to lead a normal acidity free life?I really need to know.Tell me about the diet during the homeopathy medication.

Along with homeopathic remedies I would try psyllium from Trader Joes. Put a couple scoops into some juice everyday and it will raise 'good' gut bacteria and cleanse your insides.

You say that you are using Arsenicum 30C. Do you feel that this helps?

In question 5, I asked if you ever think that you may have cancer, not whether you have cancer.
Can you confirmed or disprove this question?

Do you often want food late in the evening or at night?
How is sleep, sleep well, or you may be restless at night. Perhaps many thoughts that prevent you from sleeping?

Will look at your diet after I found the right remedies, which I think I have, just have to get your answers to these questions.
Is pretty sure you should start at a medicine called 'Abies Nigra.' But it is not completely settled yet.

Parakletos. last decade
Yes Arsenicum 30c helps.But i am taking this from 26th March,2010.Its help full,as after using this i dont feel constriction,chest pain.But acidity slightly decreased,but regularly specially after 4or 5pm occurs.
No i did not ever think that i might have cancer,but think that it may lead to cancer due to its harmful effects.
I sleep very well.At at about 1a.m i go to sleep & wake up at about 7 or 8 a.m.

The most fundamentale in Arsenicum is: Insecurity.
That is a fundmental sense of vulnerability and defenselessness in matters to disease and death.

A 'arsenicum person' is a person who is a perfectionist and fastidious. Everything must be clean and neat.
Because of its uncertainty, arsenicum is very dependent on others.
Other things is, that they are afraid of death, may panic if they feel bad. Fear of cancer.
They are aggravated by cold, they have a burning pain. Head feels often very hot, but cold on the body.
Do you recognize any of these symptoms?

Parakletos. last decade
Yes I feel defenselessness to this disease because of it's long term suffering & also that due to this I am lagging behind from others.Head feels often very hot & a dull head ache is there.Burning sensation in body i also feel somtimes.I also feel frequent body temperature rise,with uncomfort in body.Yes I was afraid of death,as I loved someone & also because of my mother.I want to say you one thing I get irritated very often this times,I feel very insecure that nobody loves me as I remain silent most of the time,because I am frustrated & nostalgic about my love.One thing I want to say you that when I get irritated or tensed acidity rises.

Dear mydestiny, Nat phos 3x is best for fast cure of GERD.


Wishing for your QUICK CURE,

Dr Abhishek Mukherjee

To Dr Abhishek

I am glad to note that you too have discovered that Nat Phos is the best remedy for GERD.

I note that you have indicated the 3x potency but my research with this remedy over a period of about 10 years proves that the 6x is even better. The higher potencies like 12x and 30x are not effective at all.

I have always prescribed this remedy in the 6x potency with Arnica 30c in the Wet dose. The reason for my prescribing Arnica is because I have also discovered that this remedy helps to rebuild the delicate tissue in the Esophagus which all patients who present GERD who have usually been suffering for many years. Many have been prescribed antacids at first and later PPI's like Nexium, Prilosec, Zantac and many others that are in the Proton Pump Inhibitor category. These powerful drugs have been found to be habit forming and what is more dangerous have recently been found to affect the CNS with disastrous permanent after effects.

It is the combination of both remedies that often work the miracle cure sometimes overnight and you can read a case that I was treating up to last night which I was forced to abandon due to the patient not following my instructions and expecting me to answer all his stupid questions without taking the 2 remedies.

His latest post is interesting as he has thanked me today for what can be termed a Miracle Cure within just 4 days. Here is a copy of his post today:


re: regarding gerd - attn dr.joeFrom KumaranKumaran on 2010-04-07Dr Joe,

I ,must admit that I got relief from your help. To that I am very grateful for ever.

Coming to what you said, I wont agree.

So, thanks for your help and thanks once again.



You may have observed that the classical homeopaths on this forum invariably prescribe many remedies for GERD many of which are irrelevant and only serve to keep the patient in a state of suspended animation which is not designed to cure but can sometimes kill.

Hello again.
I see that there are a few others here who believe that Nat Phos, Natrum Phosphoricum can do miracles with your problem. Suggest that you try this. Can it help that's great.
Should it not work so please contact me again. Mail address can be found on my profile page.
Good luck.

To Parakletos

I believe that you have missed the point in the Joepathy that I have prescribed for GERD. It is essential that the patient takes Nat Phos AND Arnica 30c in the Wet dose as prescribed to be cured of this disease which modern medicine is powerless to CURE.

I have dealt with the action of Nat Phos in detail on this and other Homeopathic Forums that I visit and if you are interested to read my research you can type GERD or Nat Phos into the Search Box and read the many cases that I have helped and also read the action of Nat Phos which Dr Scheusslel himself recorded in his notes which I have also recorded and shall copy below for the benefit of those interested.


Sodium and Phosphate ions are to be found in our body in the muscle, nerve and brain cells, in the blood corpuscles and in the tissue fluids. According to Dr Schuessler, Nat Phos splits the lactic acid, which is produced by the work of muscles into carbonic acid and water. The carbonic acid is absorbed by the sodium phosphate and brought to the lungs where it is eliminated in the process of breathing. If Sodium phosphate is lacking, there results an excess of lactic acid and consequently a sour taste, heart burn, sour stools, vomiting of sour, caseous matter, particularly in babies who are overfed with sugar and milk. If lactic acid reaches the lymphatic glands, the albumin of the3 lymph coagulates and the gland begins to swell. In the initial stages of swelling of the lymphatic glands therefore, Nat Phos has a healing effect because it can split lactic acid. Mat Phos further assures that the uric acid of the blood which is formed by the splitting up of the albuminous substance is kept in solution and secreted by the kidneys. Should this not be the case, uric acid dill be deposited in the joints. The sequels are Rheumatism. Gout, Sciatica, Lumbago. In the gall Nat Phos saponifies the fatty acids which have been consumed with the food. It is hence indicated against digestive disturbances resulting from excessive consumption of fat. Nat Phos also dissolves Cholesterol.'

My research shows that Nat Phos or Sodium Phosphate (Na2HPO4) accelerates the passage of food through the stomach down into the gut and thereby prevents the buildup of excess acidity which when combined with the gastric juice is often regurgitated into the Esophagus thereby causing GERD. As I mentioned above, Arnica 30c in the Wet dose is an integral part of this Joepathy as either one taken individually cannot cure GERD.

The bonus in using Nat Phos 6x is that it has also been proved to reduce weight by about 1kg per week if it is used by the patient without any other drugs or remedies which will antidote the weight reducing potential of this remedy.

You are invited to visit a long thread which dates back to December 26 2004 on the ABC forum entitled:

(Nat Phos) The Ultimate Cure for Obesity.


Here is Clarke on Nat Phos:

As Nat. phos. is one of Schüssler's introductions I will first quote what he has to say about it: 'Nat. phos. is contained in the blood-corpuscles, in the cells of the muscles, of the nerves and of the brain, as well as in the intercellular fluids. Through the presence of Nat. p. lactic acid is decomposed into carbonic acid and water. Nat. p. is able to bind to itself carbonic acid, receiving into itself two parts of carbonic acid for every volume of phosphoric acid. When it has thus bound the carbonic acid it conveys it to the lungs. The oxygen flowing into the lungs liberates the carbonic acid, which is only loosely attached to the Nat. p.; the carbonic acid is then exhaled and exchanged for oxygen, which is absorbed by the iron of the blood-corpuscles. Nat. p. is the remedy for those diseases which are caused by an excess of lactic acid. It therefore answers to the diseases of infants, who, having been fed to excess with milk and sugar, suffer from redundant acids. The symptoms in such cases are: Sour eructations, vomiting of sour, cheesy masses; yellowish-green, so-called hacked diarrhœas; colic, spasms with acidity. Uric acid is dissolved in the blood by two factors, the warmth of the blood and Nat. p. If uric acid is deposited from its solution in the joints or near them, owing to a deficiency of Nat. p., or when it combines with the base of Carbonate of soda into urate of soda, which is insoluble, then there arises podagra or acute arthritic rheumatism. During an acute attack of podagra the secretion of uric acid in the urine is diminished by just so much as is retained of it in the diseased parts. Nat. p. also serves to saponify the fatty acids; it therefore cures those dyspeptic ailments which arise from eating fat food, or which are aggravated thereby.'─Nat. p. has been proved, chiefly in the attenuations, under Farrington's direction. Schüssler's indications do not all appear in the provings, but I insert them in the Schema and distinguish them by (S). The correspondence is tolerably close. In the proving the nose-irritation and itching anus of the worm-condition was developed. Atony of bladder. Hair sensation on tongue. Tightness of muscles and tendons. Seminal emissions. Charles Mohr, who was one of the provers, relates in Amer. Med. Monthly (Oct., 1897) the effect it had on him and the use he made of it. After being under the influence of the drug some time (without knowing what it was) he had much itching at the ankle-joints, with an eczematous eruption. Fear, especially at night, that something would happen. Headache; some nausea; defect of vision, one pupil dilated. The symptoms had to be antidoted with Sepia. Two years after, Mohr had a patient with visional disturbance and headache, and when these were at their worst he had a sense of fear, < at night, and an eruption about the ankles which began with itching. Nat. p. 6x cured promptly. M. J. Luys (H. W., xxxiv. 477) has successfully overcome the morphia habit by subcutaneous injections of Nat. ph. with glycerine and water.─The symptoms are < walking, especially up stairs. Warmth of bed = itching at anus from worms. Thunderstorm < pains; = trembling and palpitation. When big toe pains heart pains are >. There is periodicity in the action. < From coitus.

I would like to emphasize that I am not recording the above information to establish my superiority in knowledge to you or others who will read this post. I am recording this post to share with those who are interested in curing this disease GERD to also use the same protocol that I have recorded and if it does not work, I shall be grateful if those who find it not working to please record their findings on this thread.
