Reflux Acidity Headache

I have lots of problems with my stomach. After endoscopy doctors have told I have Reflux and Hiatal Hernia. I also have acidity. I have taken tons of Alopathic medicines in last 10 years. In fact most of them won't work anymore.

Here are my problems:

1. I have acidity problem after taking food. I have cut down severly on spicy and oily foods but still it's there.

2. For some reason if my lunch or dinner is delayed by even 30 mins I will start getting Headache but no stomach pain.

3. I also get bloated after taking lunch.

4. I have to get up several times in the night due to burning in my Esophagus. After taking a glass of water I go to sleep again. Due to acid coming to my mouth bottom of my teeth also getting eroded.
If I drink a glass of milk before sleeping it helps !!

5. In last 10 years I have never taken Tea/Coffee/cold drinks.

Other symptoms:

1. From last couple of years, I am getting irritated very easily.

2. Have developed Vericose veins alover my Leg. But from childhood I have blue veins visible all over my body.

3. Stool is always semisolid and foul smelling. During the day the flatulence also smells bad.

I am 39 yrs old, male, 6' tall and 75 kgs.

Please let me know if you need any other info. Please help me.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Probable best bet is Carbo Veg 10m .

Take at night on 3 sucessive nights and wait a few days to judge effect.

After this get some Hamamelis 6x and some witch hazel lotion .

Paint the veins with the lotion and take the tablets nigh and morning.

I shall be interested to learn if Carbo Veg 10M has resolved your gastric reflux problem.

Drink 10 Cups of bottled water a day, NO cafeine at all.

No one seems to know that water is the "water of life."

I was not able to get Carbo Veg 10M. I got only 1M but went ahead with it. After 3 days I am getting some relief but not a whole lot. Should I continue to take ? Please advise.

I have increased by water intake.

Yes carry on until relief is obtained -- then stop until problem returns and repeat .

If after this there is still a problem we need to either change the potency or the remedy.

There are no more improvements. But surprising things heppening. The dieses which I had 14/15 years back i.e. before I got Hiatal Hernia and Reflux have come back.

1. When I wake up from bed in the morning nose is stuffed. I clean up the nose several times. Fluid is transperant. After that for about 2 hours I will start getting sudden sneezes. Nose will be full of clear fluid. After around 2 hours it will stop completely. During the day sometimes same sympton will be there.
This problem was there around 15 years ago but I used to have headache also. Now except headache everything else is back. Those days I had to continue medication for almost a year.

2. The second problem is with stool. Bowel is not getting completly emptied in the morning. I have to go at least 3/4 times a day. Each time it will be little. Before bowell I feel little pain in the stomach.

3. Also, the PE problem of 15 years back has come back.

4. Sometimes I am getting little stomach pain as well.
Hope I am clear enough

I presume that you have discovered by now that Carbo Veg is not your remedy.

I have successrully treated many cases similar to yours with the Biochemic salt Natrum Phosphoricum 6x also knows as Nat Phos 6x. Dosage is 2 tablets after lunch and dinner.

You should have relief almost immediately you take it after a meal when you should notice that the burning sensation of the acid in your stomach is no more. You will also sleep very soundly as a result of the food going down quickly.

Nat Phos works by accelerating peristalysis and thereby preventing the build up of acid which results in heart burn, acid reflux and a variety of other problems. Your bowel movement will also be automatically regulated and you should discover that your stools are easily expelled. If your catarrh started recently and it can be attributed to your hyper acidity, this problem too will hopefully be also cured.

It is possible that you may have to take this remedy for some time and it is quite safe to be used as in the 6x potency it only contains 1/1 millionth of the salt.

You should not eat large meals and it is important that you do not use coffee and cola drinks.

Report progress in a week.

Joe - hope you don't mind me saying but the return of old symptoms is usually positive, as long as they are not causing too much of a problem. It seems from reading the symptoms that they are subsiding - if this is correct then I would suggest waiting a while to see what happens.

Having said that the use of Nat Phos 6x, if taken now, should not interfere with the action of Carbo Veg, so taking it will certainly do no harm and could well relieve!

I was anticipating the response that Kamlesh gave about his gastric problem which I did not wish to take on as you had already prescribed the remedy Carbo Veg 1M. When I first saw your remedy choice, I felt that it would not work as I too have used it and discovered that it is only good in a few cases. It was then that I came to the conclusion that Nat Phos 6x is by far the ultimate remedy to treat any hyperacidic conditions which usually lead to the other problems that Kamlesh is now suffering from.

I have used this remedy myself and have advised many hundreds of patients to use Nat Phos 6x and as far as I remember none has reported to not have benefited from this therapy to help with their hyperacidity and other gastric conditions.

You may also know that I quite accidentally discovered last September that this same Nat Phos 6x which I had prescribed for a severe gastric condition in an obese man reduced his weight by over 25kg up to now. I made mention of this discovery in a post on this forum in December 25 2004 and you can read it if you look up my old posts. There is one correction which I had not noticed and that was the rate of reduction which should read as "in a month" and not in a week.

Nat Phos 6x is the ultimate weight reduction formula and it is now being used by hundreds of obese people throughout the world to reduce their weight and I hope that this news will be passed from one person to the other as I have given it since last September to over 50 obese people in Sri Lanka and the success rate that I achieved is better than 95%.

Kamlesh is your patient and I hope you don't mind my suggesting Nat Phos 6x which I did when I was alerted to his post. I am certain that it must help his condition and what is more, he will notice the relief within a maximum of 10 minutes after the first dose.

I do not have your email address and would appreciate if you can please send it to me on my email which is :

Hi Joe,
you mentioned that 15c of Nat.Phos is the equivalent of 30x . if that is the case, then 3c is exactly the equivalent of 6x. A little mathematics. But I ain't sure if this is correct.

In Germany, we find, in most of the cases, 2 levels of potencies.... 'C' and 'D'.

Let me start like this. I was quite impressed with your suggestions on Nat.Phos 6x and Arnica 30c in wet form. As I myself have been diagnosed with Reflux Esophagitis an year ago, taking this combination could really help.

Well about a couple of weeks ago, I had a bout of Food-Poisoning and since then, a lot of burning started in the stomach, a feeling of heaviness in the head and most importantly, a kind of shooting pain right under the left rib cage region where the Esophagus ends and not to mention a lot of gas.

A couple of days ago, I purchased Nat.Phos D6 Tablets in Biochemic Form. What would be the equivalent of D6? Does it coincide with the method of treatment you suggest for GERD? And most importantly, does it help my case?

Thanks a lot
- Joei

To Joel

Although a 30x remedy is the equivalent of 15c the mathematical extension of 6x being = to 3c is not correct.

C is Centesimal and X or D is Decimal.

You did right by getting the Nat Phos D6 tablets which is of course the equivalent of 6x.

The dose is 2-3 tablets after meals and I would also like you to take the Arnica 30c in the wet dose for your GERD. You should soon find that your problem will resolve itself in a few days.

Your bout of food poisoning obviously caused some problems with your stomach and the burning you felt was the acid burning the stomach lining. If you had taken Nat Phos say 4 tablets it should have helped to settle this problem.

It is incidents like what you have suffered that pave the way for GERD which is a chronic state where the Esophagus is burnt up by the gastric juice and will take some time to heal with the Nat Phos / Arnica therapy.

sir i have been over weight since past 5 years, but now the problem seems to be increasing. i have also got my thyroid test done but its all normal. my height is 5'3ft and my weight is 85 kgs which comes under the scale of obesity if my BMI is calculated.because of this i feel heaviness while doing physical work, feel lazy most of the time.
sometimes i am too sleepy and sometimes i face the issue of insomnia. pitty issues have started irritating me too much.because of my over weight i am unable to give my best in whatever work i do. i often quit jobs because little bit of effort makes me tired. i feel very very lazy, because doing any work increases my breathing and i feel heaviness while i do them. infact reading a book or studying a subject also proves tedious for me. sir i request you too kindly advise me the best. so that i can lose weight and come under normal BMI scale within next 3-4 months as my over weight is becoming a hindrance in my success
