orange peel
suggested by gina on Tuesday, April 1, 2008

Years ago I suffered from gerd. While at the pharmacy waiting on my prescription, I was told about a remedy to treat gerd. I left my script at the pharmacy and instead purchased orange peel extract. I believe it was 1000 mg of orange peel. You take it every other day, for 1 month. The first week or two I thought the pharmacist must be nuts but then all of a sudden it started working. I do remember the paper work I had about it said you shouldn't do this if you might have an ulcer. I swear it worked wonders. I have never taken stomach medicine again except for the occasional tums. Just watch out for the orange burps! It could be worse I guess.

EXERCISE the midriff to help tighten the muscles that support that leaky stomach valve. My husband cured his serious GERD and was able to stop all medications by doing 100 crunches a day: low back & waist flat against the floor, knees up, feet flat on floor. Lock hands behind the neck, raise and lower the upper body. My occasional problem was helped by yoga. Get moving!

Heartburn relief
suggested by j on Monday, December 31, 2007

I have suffered from Heartburn since I was a small child, not knowing what it was I focused on sipping ice cold water all day long. However, I find when I change my diet, to high protein and vegetable and cut down on carbs, sugar, citrus, spicy foods or High Fat foods. I do not have a single moment of heartburn. Once I started feeding my body the good foods, I started feeling amazing and again no Heartburn. I believe you need to eat what you are, we are a combination of water, protein and millions of vitamins and minerals. Try it for a few days thats all you need you will see results immediately.

The Buttermilk cure
suggested by Sharon on Monday, April 2, 2007

As the title implies: drink a small glass of buttermilk. The only real downside is to expect flatulance. I was in the hospital with SEVERE stomach pain. I was using OMEPRAZOLE and I was given TRAMADOL to treat the pain and symptoms. In desperation I used my old favorite; buttermilk. The thicker the better. Within about 5 minutes most of the pain was gone and my stomach relaxed. I was able to eat a light meal and finally get some sleep minus the torture.
