Need relief from Heartburn / acidity

I suddenly started having heartburn over three months ago. Symptoms include
- Burning sensation in pit of stomach
- Chest burning usually before mealtime esp. if there is a gap of over 3 hours between meals
- Back of throat burning sensation

Had a GI endoscopy done and nothing was discovered. Tried Aciphex for a month but I do not want to take that any more - looking for a homeopathic remedy.

Started NP & MP yesterday (4 tablets each after meals). However I have seen recommendations for Sulphur 30 & NuxVomica as well in other posts.
Which should I follow ? Thanks in Advance,

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Your remedy is Nat Phos 6x Biochemic tablets. Dose 2 tablets taken after both lunch and dinner. Stop all other drugs and/or remedies.

Eat small meals but often as the pain you get before meals is due to the gastric juices eroding the mucus layer and attacking the inside muscle. If this is permitted to continue, it usually results in an ulcer which is very difficult to cure.

Burning in your throat is due to Hiatus Hernia where the gastric juices leak through into the eosophagus and the acid burns right up to your throat. This is a serious condition which you must arrest ASAP with Nat Phos 6x.

Thanks Joe. I will try that for sure.
I have another question though, sometimes (usually) I feel a burning sensation in the chest area just prior to eating, I try to eat every two hours but sometimes it goes over (esp. when I am concerned about eating too much !!). Is there anything that can be taken prior to eating to ease these symptoms ? I assume that Nat Phos is only post lunch & dinner right ?

I note that you have still not used the Nat Phos and seem to be throrizing about the possibilities of that burning pain before a meal.

Suggest you use the remedy and report. It will break the cycle that you are suffering from and you will be well in a week or less.

Read throrizing as theorizing

Dear Joe,
I have started the Nat Phos 6X as of yesterday. Will report the progress.

Fifth day of Nat Phos 6X. Defnitely some improvement. Buring in pit of stomach has reduced, chest burning is on occasion only - typically before eating when there is over two hours gap. The burning sensation at the back of the throat is there after lunch or dinner.
Should I change anything ?

You cannot expect a chronic problem such as yours to be cured instantly especially since your observed it a few months ago. You must understand that there is erosion in the non returrn type valve between you aesophagus and the stomach which has precipitated your Hiatus Hernia.

I believe that you may have to take the Nat Phos 6x for some months in the future till your body is able to restore the balance in your digestive system. It is quite safe to be used and I know many who have used it for about a year for weight reduction. You may also weigh yourself and check if you can enjoy its other bonus quality of weight reduction.

You may also like to use Arnica 6c at night in the Split Dose method which I have often described on this forum. This will help your body to repair the damage quicker.

You must stay erect after a meal which must be small in quantity for at least an hour to ensure that the gastric juices do not leak out of the stomach and cause the burning in your throat.

You may also increase the number of tablets to 3 for a few days and see if this will make any difference in your problem. If you notice any difference in your taste, you must reduce the dosage back to 2.

Report progress as this is in your own interest.
