Ginger Juice and GERD

Posted by Vicki on October 12, 1998 at 11:48:10:

My sister has used the fresh ginger juice treatment for heartburn for over a week now and is no longer experiencing the heartburn. She used to live on TUMS. She will keep the regimen up for the whole 3 weeks and see what happens. Since she has crohn's disease and that may enter into the heartburn problem, we're not sure this will promote a full "cure" but she figures she can just keep using it if that's the case. It's not hard to do, and neither one of us found it difficult to knock back a teaspoon of it each a.m. If you suffer from the problem it's well worth a try. You can find out more details on the descriptions of various diseases that Walt posts.

Thanks, Vicki.

Now is the time for her to focus on the fact that both her Crohn's AND the GERD are caused by the same process: LGS!

The ginger juice is not a cure for GERD but a way to stop suffering while one deals with the LGS. Eventually, continuing the GRJ will not keep the GERD symptoms away in someone with Crohn's.

Okay, thanks. There is a wonderful nutritionist here at work, our Science Researcher, who practices on the side and is also firing up her alternative medicine practice again. I believe Kathy will start seeing her to get a better picture of just what leaky gut is. I work for a large center for health research so have access to a lot of information, however didn't take advantage of it much until I started surfing the net and found this BB. Every positive outcome helps all of us become more receptive to looking farther. Incidentally, I just had my first night ever where I only got up once to use the bathroom, that included reading in bed before trying to go to sleep. My IC continues to go up and down, but every now and then I get a glimmer of what is coming.

Thanks, Vicki.

You will continue to see the IC's "ups & downs" for the entire 6-12 months it takes to discharge this via skilled relaxation. The ups will be longer & the downs will be shorter & not so intense as time goes on. The best way to keep on top of your progress is by keeping notes on a calendar. As we get well, we ALL tend to forget how things were in the beginning. Actually, in the long run this is a healthy trait: we are leaving our illness behind. In the short run, it helps to remember so we don't get complacent about what is resolving it.
