This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
It is very likely that you suffer from Hyperacidity or Gastritis, aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease) and I shall copy my default therapy that has helped hundreds of patients to overcome this disease which I believe will be more effective than the Mucaine gel that you are now using.

You are advised to STOP using it immediately. I shall copy the warning from their website:


Do not use this product if you are presently taking a prescription antibiotic drug containing any form of tetracycline.
This medicine should not be given to any patient who has demonstrated a sensitivity to it.
The use of aluminium- or magnesium-containing antacids is contra-indicated in patients with symptoms of appendicitis since these medicines may increase the danger of perforation or rupture due to their constipating or laxative effects. The use of aluminium-containing antacids (except those containing aluminium phosphate) is contra-indicated in patients with hypophosphataemia due to the phosphate binding properties of aluminium salts.
The use of magnesium-containing antacids is contra-indicated in patients with severe renal function impairment due to increased danger of occurrence of hypermagnesaemia.
Safety in pregnancy and lactation has not been established.'

You will hopefully discover that my therapy aka 'Joepathy' will help you within the hour after you have taken your first dose after a meal.

The remedies you will order 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.

Please observe the following simple rules:

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 lining and the wall of your stomach. The simple remedy is to eat some food like a biscuit or a banana between meals to keep the gastric juice away from digesting the stomach wall which results in a stomach ache which in some cases can be acute.

You must drink at least 3 liters of liquids, preferably water daily and you must also exercise for at least half hour daily. It is important 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.

It is understood that the patient will stop all other drugs which s/he may be taking for this ailment.

Hi Joe sir,

Thanks for your kind reference. i have some doubts please clarify me.
1. I did'nt find any spring water in the stores so i bought distil water is that ok to continue the medicine?

2. Only 3 drops of remedy is sufficient for 500 ml bottle or have to repeat the 3 drops for every time before going to take the medicine?

3. How Long this medicine should continue?

Thank you

Distilled water is better than Spring Water.

Just 3 DROPS of Arnica 30c will activate 400ml water.

You have not mentioned about your using Nat Phos 6x which is the main remedy for your GERD and you MUST take it as prescribed.

You will take them for as long as you feel that they can help you to overcome your GERD.

As you have already noticed your GERD seems to have stabilized with the first dose and it is very likely that you will be OK in a few days.

Since however you have suffered with GERD for the last 4 years it may be better to take Nat Phos till you have your baby. Both remedies are quite safe for both you and baby and you can safely take them both. You can however reduce the number of tablets you are taking to the minimum while you will take 2 doses of Arnica daily.

Report your progress from time to time on this thread.

Hi Doctor,

Sorry for the delayed response. I have continued Nat phos and Arnica during pregnency and now also.. my problem is reducing till the time i use the medicine. Once I stop it i suffer from the same problems. I was unable to contact you for long. Please suggest me if I should change the medicine.

Thanks for your kind support.

It is interesting to note that you first recorded your gastric problem in September 2012 when you were 7 months pregnant and I prescribed my default remedy Nat Phos 6x and Arnica 30c both of which helped you to overcome your GERD.

You have returned to the ABC with the same problem of GERD and state that you have not been cured.

You can add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose which you know how to make and take it twice daily.

You will continue with the Nat Phos 6x and the Arnica 30c and you will leave about half hour between remedies.

Report progress in 48 hours.
