GERD + Stomach ProblemHi,
I am having digestive problems for many years. Began with mainly bloating and gas about 10 years ago. Just a minor discomfort.
Nothing major. 5 years ago it started getting little worse and endoscopy said I have GERD. I think this was caused by bloating and gas that was the first sign of my symptoms. I struggled with GERD for many years. My doctors have prescribed me many strong antacids like omeprazole, pentaprazole etc. Helps reflux but my original problem of stomach disorder got never helped and now that is my source of concern.
A) My GERD symptoms
1) Burning of my chest due to acid reflux.
3) Burping and gas
4) Waking up at the middle of the night to catch breath. Doctor said my acid is coming up.
B) My Stomach symptoms
1) Stomach feels strong burning sensation.
2) Stomach is bloated and I am burping and gassing all the time
3) Because of bloating I feel like going to toilet even if I don't have to. So, frequent bowel movement.
4) Sometimes very slight pain (very faint) on my right side just below the right side of the rib cage.
5) I also have cramp like sensation due to gas in my lower pasr of intestine just above genitalia.
No vomiting or nausea.
I have done so far two endoscopy and one colonscopy. Colonoscopy showed one polyp but nothing bad, nothing malignant. Latest endoscopy showed fine on Esophagus but stomach antrum showed mild gastritis with Intestinal Metaplasia in stomach antrum.
I still feel like my stomach problem gave birth to GERD. Most of the medication I am taking are towards GERD but my stomach is the main concern right now.

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.
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.
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.
