question about use of nat phos for GERD

Hi, I'm new here and have spent a few days looking around at the various posts having to do with GERD and some natural ways of dealing with it. I've suffered with GERD for many years, I'm guessing at least 15 and have used both OTC and prescribed meds for it. After reading about the nat phos 6x I decided to give it a try. Today is my first day using it and although it seems to work right after I first take it, within an hour or so the heartburn is flaring up again. I was using an OTC acid reducer so I'm assuming going off of it cold turkey will cause my stomach to go into overdrive and produce excess amounts of acid. So my question is, what can I use to get myself over this hump? I'm hoping after a few days of using the nat phos and being off the OTC meds that things will settle down and I can go on using the nat phos to control the burn, but I think I need to use something in addition to the nat phos to control the acid until then. Anyone have any ideas for me?? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
There are a few cases who reported heartburn after taking Nat.Phos.

In case it happens everytime you took it, don't continue it.

The alternative is to take a medicine that suits you as a person in total, and not your GERD alone.

Thank you Murthy for your reply. I have just learned that I am gluten sensative (I had a blood test and apparently have antibodies to gluten present) so that seems to add another dimension to my health concerns. I've been told I need to go on a gluten free diet. I'm wondering if the gluten sensativity could be a factor in my GERD issues as well as the fact that I've dealt with other gastrointestinal issues for many, many years. So knowing this, is there something else that you would recommend I use to help with the heartburn? The nat phos was not working to keep things under control yesterday so I had to resort to chewing on a few Tums throughout the day. Today I will attempt to not eat anything with gluten in it and see if that makes a difference. Again, thank you for your time.

if gluten is, and has been, causing you problems, it could take a month or longer to see results from avoiding it. give it time. this does not necessarily mean that your are a celiac either, but, if you are reacting now, you should stay away for some time while you rebuild your body. hopefully you can find a remedy to help in that process. I think that reactions to gluten are indicated by certain remedies, but I lack the knowledge to tell you which ones.

John is right. Try to eliminate the offending substances, and try the natural way first.

Dear Deb,

There is something called Triphala which is an ancient Ayurvedic medicine which works both as an alkalyzer and taken over a period of time helps the body to balance the disturbances in 'pitta' (acid-base disorder).It is a very powerful natural remedy against GERD.Try it for a month and then report to me as to how you feel.Also go on a gluten free diet simultaneously.

You can buy Triphala made by any good Ayurvedic company like Dabur, Zandu etc.Just search for it on the web.

Thank you all again for your replies. I'm only on my second day of eating a gluten free diet and I can already tell a difference in how I feel. I've not used anything at all today for the reflux...no nat phos, no Tums, no OTC meds and it is now 8:00pm and I am still heartburn free. I can hardly believe it. I've suffered with GERD for 20 years and the possibility of actually being able to live without medication for it is almost too hard to believe. Rajiv, if for some reason the GERD isn't completely controlled by the gluten free diet I will purchase some Triphala and try it. If I do so I will let you know how it works for me.
