Sliding Hiatus Hernia

Hi I am 30 years olds with a confirmed sliding hiatus hernia I have been on omeprazole 20mg for 5 years and have come off them now and then to find a natural remedy as they seem to bloat me and have helped me gain excess weight. Surely switching off your acid cannot be a good thing!

For 2 days now I have been off omeprazole and on nat phos 6x with milder symptoms.

Is there any other advice from fellow sufferers to help?

I am taking nat phos 6x 3 tabs after each meal 3 times a day.

Glad to note that you are using the Nat Phos 6x therapy I have promoted for GERD. I note however that you are not taking Arnica 30c in the Wet dose which is an integral part of my therapy which I shall copy below:

Your remedies are as follows:

Nat Phos 6x dose 3-4 tablets taken immediately after each of 2 meals
Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

You can expect relief from your ailment hopefully within 24 hours.
Do not eat large meals. Eat small meals but more often if you feel hungry.
It is important that you do not go to bed for at least 2 hours after dinner as food will take about this time to digest and it is best to stay awake and upright to enable your food to digest before going to bed.

No fatty food, alcohol, coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham, bacon as they contain Saltpeter which will antidote the remedies listed immediately.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.

Please visit the links below which record the cases of other patients whom I have treated for GERD.




STOP using all other drugs and report progress in a week.

Hi I am taking nat phos 6x new era number 10 is this ok as I am still getting reflux as of this morning?


I have ordered a replacement from this forum with arnica wet dose.

I am in the UK I was hoping this would work :-(
mullins last decade
I am not familiar with
nat phos 6x new era number 10

You are advised to source your supplies from the ABC store and you will order the Arnica in the Ethanol pack.

You will take both remedies and not one alone as they are both an integral part of my therapy aka 'Joepathy'
Joe De Livera last decade
Thanks Joe but when I ordered there is no mention of ethanol pack? I am ordering from the uk.
mullins last decade
Hey Joe this what I ordered from the UK shop on the forum

1 x 10ml Liquid Remedies Arnica Montana 30C
1 x 25g Pillules - made to order Natrum Phosphoricum 6X

Hope this correct?
mullins last decade
I can see that you are not serious about following my therapy.

You must understand that I am trying to help you and unless you follow my instructions precisely as prescribed I may be compelled to withdraw from your case.

For the record I would like to add that I have been very patient with you so far but I may not be able to continue with my patience if you refuse to follow instructions precisely.

Please confirm.
Joe De Livera last decade
Sorry Joe I am confused was that message for me?

I have ordered the products you recommend from the forum store. And have copied and pasted from my order email.

I do not see how you consider I am not taking your advice seriously?
mullins last decade
Please cancel your order and reorder the following:

Arnica Montana 30c in 87% Ethanol

200gm Nat Phos 6x Biochemic Cell Salt tablets.
Joe De Livera last decade
Hi Joe

The forum uk supplier does not stock/make salt tablets.

Do you recommend any other uk suppliers?

mullins last decade
200gm Nat Phos 6x Biochemic Cell Salt tablets.

You can check with Ainsworths and even Boots
Joe De Livera last decade
Ignore the other message which was for someone else and was sent to you accidentally

My apologies.
Joe De Livera last decade
Hi Joe

I am still getting bad acid Can I take any stronger nat phos than 6x as the reflux is too bad to just leave?


mullins last decade
Your case seems to be chronic and you will have to order the following additional remedies to control your GERD. A more potent form of Nat Phos 6x cannot help you.

You will get these remedies in the standard dry pellets instead of the Ethanol pack

Lycopodium 200c Dose 4 pellets sublingually taken twice daily for 2 days.

Robina Pseudacacia 3c Dose 4 pellets sublingually taken twice daily.

Leave an hour between remedies.

Continue with the Nat Phos and Arnica as prescribed.
Joe De Livera last decade
Hey Joe

I am trying to order from ainsworths they have asked?

'Thank you for  your order.  What size bottles do you require for the Lycopodium and Robinia.  Also what do you mean by pellets.  We can either do the poppy seed coarse granules or  the sucrose pills.'

Your help Much appreciated.

Thanks Matt

Hi Joe any thoughts on this?
mullins last decade
At present the treatment has not worked with the arnica and nat phos 6x. I cannot order the other two remedies until I know the correct format to buy them in? :-(
