Dear Dr. Walt, I am 30 years old male working as an senior buyer in one of the multi national company. I've been suffering from the GERD with cough since I was young. When ever the GERD strikes, the persistent cough will be there for at least 2 weeks. The condition become worst lately, since mar'03 (almost 2 months), the persistent cough + GERD won't go away, I've met up the GP for 3 times and twice for the specialist for the pass 2 months. Taken all the medicine but still can't help much. I've been finished 2 bottles of cough mixtures + cough pill but the cough persisted and the worst at night before sleep when the acid relux and the cough become worst. Please help me to get out from the situation.

Hi:

GERD is really unpleasant, isn't it? Thank goodness you've landed on the right site! First, you'll want to read everything you can find in the Archives under GERD or reflux. There's a ton of stuff and it's really helpful.

Since you've already consulted your GP's and, hopefully, ruled out things other than GERD or more complicated, like Barrett's, you might want to try the ginger juice right away. I know I spent a fortune on Prilosec before finding Dr. Stoll and his recommended 1 tsp (5ml) per day of ginger juiced for me at the local Veggie juice bar. All my hoarseness disappeared almost immediately after three years of morning cough and constant gravelly voice.

Don't forget to go through the archived posts about skilled relaxation. I did all the mechanical things my doctor advised (raising the head of my ead, not eating after 6pm) but nothing was as helpful for me as deep breathing and yoga.

Good luck to you - help is in sight!

Laura

Hi Laura, Thanks for your advices. I was wondering why cough occur whenever the GERD attack? Really hard time for me to produce a complete cough. Do think taking the GRJ can cure the GERD as well as the cough? Please advice.

Ginger root juice is not a cure. It is a imo, more effective, MUCH longer lasting and safer symptom reducer than antacids or proton pump inhibitors. To get to the root cause, look at these archives, skilled relaxation, leaky gut syndrome, and how to be healthy.

Hi, Cy Sic.

Listen to Laura & Jon. GERD causes a cough by the well known mechanism of "referred pain". Look it up. When the same nerve supplies two different--and frequently far removed from each other--parts of the body, the brain interprets the signal as coming from either or both.

Get rid of your LGS and this will be a thing of the past. Use the GRJ, in the meantime, for temporary relief.

Use the glossary, the home page and the archives until you begin to understand what to do.

Let us know what you learn and how you do.

Walt

Dear Dr. Stoll, Thanks for the advice and reply. I've started the GRJ this morning, just 1 question can I consume it more than 1 time per day, saying 2 twice a day (morning & evening)? Please advice.
Regards.

Sure, CY.

My only concern is that, since we still do not know why it works, that your tissue might get used to it and the GRJ no longer have it's effect. 4000 years of empirical experience has settled upon this protocol as the most effective.

You can be our guinea pig. Let us know if it still works.

Walt
