Acid Reflux

I have this acid reflux problem since the last 5 years . i typically get this burning symptom in the chest + lots of gas . I cant sleep till the gas comes out by burping and /or farting , and only then i feel comfortable enough to go to bed .

I tried Mag Carb on the advice of a a friend but doesn't seem to be working.

Any suggestions ?

i tried nat phos 6 and it worked wonders . however its not fully gone, though the relief is enormous . was wondering if i should take carbo veg 30 x for the gas ( flatulence) . the acid reflux is always accompanied by gas and i feel better only after i walk around for about an hour or more , all the while belching and releasing gas , and only then can i sleep .

also . should i take both carbo veg and the nat phos pills together or in any particular order?

I am pleased to know about your wonders.

Where is the gas pressure?

Above the belly button or below?

What are the other issues, mental and physical?

Please never self-prescribe as these remedies are very powerful with side effects.

Nawaz,

Just to remind you that this patient first reported:
'I have this acid reflux problem since the last 5 years . i typically get this burning symptom in the chest + lots of gas . I cant sleep till the gas comes out by burping and /or farting , and only then i feel comfortable enough to go to bed . '

He later stated after you prescribed NP to him:
'i tried nat phos 6 and it worked wonders . however its not fully gone, though the relief is enormous .'

He has enjoyed only a partial cure of his GERD but his Esophagus which has been eroded by the gastric juice during the past 5 years has yet to be treated with Arnica 30c in the Wet dose which will help to rebuild the damaged inner lining of the Esophagus which is essential to ensure a complete cure.

Suggest you advise him accordingly.

Many prayers for you.

Dear Nawaz khan / Joe De Livera

I tried the Carbo Veg 200 C as indicated by you . Seems to have a great calming effect , but no gas release . The gas remains bottled up inside causing great discomfort . ( Off course much less now that I started the Nat Phos 2 weeks back )

I still want to know whether to continue the Carboveg and the Nat Phos or no ?

Also , i have also realised that by evening i start having hunger pangs , and desperately need some small snack or biscuits so calm down the hunger . Once I have the snack, am OK till Dinner . Anything to be done for that ? I noticed that some other patients have also written about Hunger pangs , so was wondering if there is a connection .

Did you note that this patient has not indicated how many tablets of Nat Phos 6x he had taken.

He reported:
'He later stated after you prescribed NP to him:
'i tried nat phos 6 and it worked wonders . however its not fully gone, though the relief is enormous .'

He has enjoyed only a partial cure of his GERD but his Esophagus which has been eroded by the gastric juice during the past 5 years has yet to be treated with Arnica 30c in the Wet dose which will help to rebuild the damaged inner lining of the Esophagus which is essential to ensure a complete cure. '

I have noticed that chronic cases of GERD have to be treated with at least 4 tablets of NP taken immediately after a meal for the first few days followed by the Arnica 30 taken twice daily in the Wet dose.
 
Joe De Livera 9 years ago
Joe,

I take 2 pills after a meal , but sometimes I take 2 more after some time if I dont feel well ( usually at bed
time )

Mike
 
mikemasala 9 years ago
To Mike

How did you respond to the increased dosage?

Have you also taken the Arnica 30c in the Wet dose that I have always prescribed for GERD?
 
Joe De Livera 9 years ago
The additional pills usually helps to bring peace .

But the point is that having tried all these different pills - Nat Phos 6 X, then Carbo veg 30 ( pills ),Carbo Veg 200 ( liquid ) , all have helped in varying amounts, but I stll feel that the main problem is the gas . Unless I can get the Gas out , I keep feeling uncomfortable and have to walk about an hour or even more, belching all the while, till enough has gone out that i can sleep peacefully .

I think if we can tackle the gas, then the Nat Phos will take acre of the acid reflux .

Also , like I wrote earlier , There is also the issue of the Hunger pangs .

Please also tell me what is to be continued and any particular time or sequence for the medicine .
Currently I am Nat Phos , 2 pills after each meal + Carbo Veg 200x - 2 drops in small amt of water , Once only after dinner .

Is this right ?

Haven't tried the Arnica 30 c , do you want me to try it ? what dosage and when ?

You stated:
'Haven't tried the Arnica 30 c , do you want me to try it ? what dosage and when ?'

This is the reason for your present problem.

I shall copy below my default therapy for GERD to make everything clear for you:


It is very likely that you are suffering from GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux disease) and I shall copy the therapy I have prescribed to hundreds of patients who presented GERD, the large majority of whom have been cured.

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. Do not drink more that a few sips of water after your meals. This is to prevent the further dilution of your gastric juice which can then reflux into your Esophagus which results in GERD.

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.

If you suffer from a stomach ache or you feel your stomach puffing up before a meal during the day between meals this is usually due to hunger pains, caused by your gastric juices attacking the inner wall of your stomach. The simple remedy is to eat some food like a biscuit or a banana to keep the gastric juice away from digesting the stomach wall when you will experience a stomach ache which in some cases can be very acute.

You must drink at least 3 liters of liquids, preferably water daily and you must also exercise for at least hald hour daily to sweat it out as this is all part of my therapy to overcome GERD.
The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Liquid Alcohol 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.

I have been taking Nat Phos 6x almost daily for almost 3 months now , and it has been a great relief . My problem seems to be that while the acid settles down , i still feel a lot of gas in the stomach and i end up waking and walking around till the gas comes out by burping / breaking wind .

I am wondering if it is the gas which causes acid or vice versa ? In any case i get relief only after the gas is out , i cant get sleep till the gas is out , so i never seem to be able to sleep enough. I get these big burps and only then the stomach lightens up . Often i feel pain in the hands or back till the gas is out .

Currently i am only on Nat Phos 6x , 4 pills 2 times a day .
 
mikemasala 9 years ago
I often wonder what the reason is for a patient to stubbornly refuse to take ALL the remedies that are prescribed and to later state that he still suffers from the same ailment presented for which these remedies were prescribed.

I have patiently explained to you that Nat Phos 6x and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose are both an integral part of my Joepathy which has helped many thousands of patients to overcome their GERD.

Please visit the link below where the patient confirmed that he was helped to overcome an ailment identical to yours with this same Joepathy I prescribed to you.

If you wish to be CURED the choice is yours.

Joe.

point taken . i have got Arnica 30 C in the liquid form. seems to be a 50 ml bottle . now i add 3 drops to the 500 ml water bottle and then after shaking hard i take a cap full after every meal . i hope i got that right.
 
mikemasala 9 years ago
I note that you do not seem to read and understand my therapy as prescribed which I shall copy and past 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.'

The Arnica is best taken before a meal TWICE daily.
 
Joe De Livera 9 years ago
Joe ,

the guys at the local pharmacy dont seem to understand the term liquid dilution .

so what i have got is a bottle of arnica 30 c , already but its probably 30 ml or 50 ml .

so is this ok or i need something else ?
 
mikemasala 9 years ago
If you refer to the many thousands of posts I have made on this ABC Forum and others you will discover that I have prescribed the remedies in the Liquid Dilution in Alcohol to at least a thousand patients.

All of them have been able to order the remedy precisely as I have prescribed. I cannot understand the reason why only you are unable to get the remedy as prescribed.

I note that you refer to a 50ml bottle of the remedy and this is far too large a quantity as you will only be using just 3 drops to activate a bottle of water.

You will have to inquire from your friends where you can order the Liquid Dilution of Arnica 30c. You will get the smallest possible quantity marketed around 5ml.

You are also advised to check with other suppliers of Homeopathic remedies who may be aware of the Liquid Dilution in Alcohol.
 
Joe De Livera 9 years ago
Joe ,

I have taking the medicine as prescribed . including the arnica 30 C in the wetdose ( liquid dilution in alcohol )

while the arnica and the natrum phos has taken off the sedge and the chest burning etc, the stomach still feels bloated . I still have to walk around at night , after dinner , for at least an hour , burping to let the gas out , off course , its much better with no chest pressure .

any suggestions ?
 
mikemasala 9 years ago
Glad to note that you have finally succeeded in locating the Liquid Dilution in Alcohol of the Arnica.

Confirm if you have got the Nat Phos 6x in the tablets and state how many tablets you take for a dose and how often.
 
Joe De Livera 9 years ago
I have Nat Phos 6x which i have been taking since over 3 - 4months now . I take 3 -4 pills mainly in the night 15 mins after Dinner .

and 15 mins before Dinner , the arnica 30 c in the wetdose, prepared as directed .
