Re: GERD and anxiety disorder

I'm 57-year old man having a chronic GERD(2 years) and anxiety disorder(2 months), depression(2 months).

I take ppi(nexium 40mg) for GERD and zanax(aprazolam)1.5mg for anxiety and zoloft(sertraline) 25mg(minimal amount) for depression daily.

My symptoms of GERD has not been improved with any other natural remedy including acid apple vinegar.

Each time the reflux occurs, arrhythmia(skip rhythm) intermittently appear but they not so serious.

Endoscopic exam (upper and lower GI)showed almost normal. My blood pressure is normal, non-diabetic, but sometimes feel palpitation because of anxiety.

I wonder if I can try Natrum Phos. 6x?
If I take Natrum Phos. 6x, what medication should I stop?
Thank you.

take KREOSOTUM 200c liquid, 2 drops in a tablespoon water, only 2 dose not more than that, not daily, 1st dose before sleep and next dose next morning after wakeup,

dnt eat or drink anything 30 minutes before or after medicine,

{if buying pills then 3 pills as one dose, 2 times, 1st at night and 2nd after wakeup, chew it, dnt swallow with water}

report how you felt in acidity, anxiety, fatigue, sleep, constipation and mental freshness after 20 days of stopping the course.

also do some exercises like SURYA NAMASKAR (google it or youtube) 5 TIMES DAILY for proper blood flow in whole body,

BHRAMARI PRANAYAM (google it or youtube) 10 TIMES DAILY for mental freshness,

in ayurveda this technique helps in reducing acid reflux and gas effectively,

no water or anything 1 hour before meals,
not to drink much water just after meals, you can take very little amount, then to drink 1 glass water 90 minutes after meal, dnt take cold water, warm fresh foods to be taken in meals.

thanks..

question:
1. Can I take the liquid you recommended with the medicines I take currently such as omeprazole(ppi), alprazolam(antianxiety).
2. Is this homeopathic remedy for acid reflux and/or with anxiety?
 
hrlee3196 5 years ago
1) yes you can take

2) it is for both, will work on your whole system.

thanks...
 
homeo.mzp 5 years ago
Thank you for your advice.
However, I'd like to make sure if I understand the recommendations correctly.

1.Take KREOSOTUM 200c liquid
(2 drops+ 1 tbsp water) twice a day.
1st dose: just before sleep
2nd dose: after wake-up.
2. How long do I have to take this liquid? Is this a 20-day-course? or longer?
3. Is there any risk or side effect anticipated during this treatment course?
I'm afraid of drug interactions with the medicines I take, too.
