Suffering with GERD for more than one year

I am suffering with GERD problem for more than one year. I am slightly over weight(10 Kg). I have read Mr. Joe De Livera's kind suggestions to use NAT PHOS 6X and Arnica 30C wet dose for GERD problem and for weight reduction also. Is GERD and Over weight related to each other? I am asking this because I gained weight after GERD problem started.

Can I start using NAT PHOS 6X and Arnica 30C wet dose as suggested by Mr. Joe De Livera on this forum or any other suggestions. Right now I am using 'Ispaghula husk' powder. Can I use it along with these medicines?

Also I am having Piles(Internal hemorrhoids) problem. Please suggest some medicine for that too.

I will appriciate all your help.

Thanks in advance,

It is very likely that you are suffering from Gastritis aka 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 half 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.

Thanks Joe. I will start the using. Can you suggest me some medicine for Piles(Internal hemorrhoids).
Pamulapati last decade
It is best to stabilize your GERD before treating your Hemorrhoids as I would not like to prescribe for them as you can suffer from an overload of remedies.

In many cases I have found that GERD is the real reason for them. When Gerd is cured the Hemorrhoids also follow.
Joe De Livera last decade
Thank you for your quick response. I will start using the medicine today and update you one week later. Once again thank you for all your care.

Dear Joe, I bought the medicine from counter and started using them. I was given Natrum Phosphorica 6X and Arnica Mont 30 liquid(Protency is not mentioned on it. I doubt it is Arnica Mont 30X as the medical shop person told me that I don't need to mention 30C or 30X). After using these medicines for couple of days my symptoms changed like I am feeling burning sensation in my throat extending upto my chest. Earlier I used to have pain at chest, which sometimes I used to worry thinking heart pain, I don't observe this pain now. Also I am vomting soar liquid which is green in color in the morning while brushing.

A positive point I observed is that I am feeling some weight loss.

Kindly suggest me If I am taking proper medicine.

Thanks a lot.

Please indicate precisely how many tablets of Nat Phos 6x did you take and how often.

Also how many doses of Arnica did you take and how often.

Be assured that these 2 remedies were NOT responsible for your present problem as they are designed to Cure and Not to aggravate your GERD.
Joe De Livera last decade
I am taking 3 tablets of Nat Phos 6X after lunch and 3 tablets of Nat Phos 6X(Natrum Phosphorica 6X) after Dinner. And I am taking Arnica wet dose one spoon full in early morning and one more spoon before going to bed. I suspect the medical shop person gave me Arnica 30X instead of Arnica 30C. Is there any difference between Arnica 30X and Arnica 30C? On the bottle he mentioned the name as Arnica Mont 30.
Pamulapati last decade
If the label on your bottle of Arnica reads 30 it usually indicates that it is the 30c potency. You can always get this confirmed by your vendor.

In the alternative you can always get another stock from another vendor to be quite sure that you have got what I prescribed.

You can increase your dosage of Nat Phos 6x tablets from 3 to 6 tablets especially after dinner and report your response.

It is quite safe to take Nat Phos in this manner for a short time.

Observe all the other points that I have made in my prescription.
Joe De Livera last decade
Thanks Joe. I increased the dose to 4 tablets of NatPhos 6X after lunch and another 4 tablets after dinner. I am quite comfortable now. Also my weight is discreased by 2 kg. Everything is fine now except soar vomting in the morning(Just for your information as this doesn't bother me much). Shall I continue the same dose and for how many days?

Once again thank you very much for all your help.

Please confirm that you are taking Arnica 30c in the Wet dose thrice daily.
Joe De Livera last decade
I am taking Arnica 30C wet dose only twice daily not trice. In the morning before breakfast and at bed time.

Dear Joe,

I am feeling the GERD symptoms again. That is light pain at the back of chest and around the chest from yesterday. I am using Nat Phos 6X 4 tablets after lunch and dinner and Arnica 30C wet dose once in the morning and again before going to bed as suggested by you. I can notice that my weight is reduced.

I heard some people saying that the symtoms/pain will increase when the homeo medicine start working. Is this the reason? If it is correct I am ready to tolarate this pain. Please let me know your advise.

Note: I am staying awaya from pepper salt and coffee as suggested by you. I am having a cup of tea in the morning(earlier I used to have 2 cups of coffee before starting these medicines).

Thanks a lot.

Dear Joe,

Sorry for bothering you again and again. I am feeling my symptoms increased.

Is this because the medicines started working or my symptoms are worsening? Sometimes I feel uneasiness in my chest and mild mumbness in the left shoulder which are making me worry. I used to have these symptoms earlier before using allopathy medicines for GERD. Please suggest me.

Thanks a lot for your help,
