GERD w/o HH

Posted by

Hello,
My Wife suffers from Gerd, but does not have a HH, as per tests conducted by her Doctor. Does this mean anything in terms altering the treament or should stick the route with SR. She started SR a couple weeks ago and loves it!

thanks

Hi there,
I had the exact same thing. The SR has helped GREATLY long term, and you can do it as normal (2xday). However, if she wants immediate relief (as I did!) she should do the ginger root juice treatment described here. I was a skeptic but have been telling people ever since that IT WORKS! I was taking Nexium and stopped after the ginger root juice.

Hi Dillon,

How long has your wife been suffering from acid reflux trouble?
If it has been more than 6 months, the chances of it simply going away are much lower. A viral attack such as internal shingles can paralyze a nerve branch for a while and then slowly recover. Not everyone recovers completely. Having her checked for antibody titres to Herpes Zoster can show an overactive immune system, but taking anti-viral meds to help prevent nerve damage should be done very early in the attack, before any permanent damage occurs.

Did it start after a difficult labour, car accident involving whiplash, too much strenuous exercise (like ab-crunches), heavy lifting, or anything that may have hurt the diaphragm?

Hiatal hernias can be almost invisible if they are small, but the supporting ligaments can still be stretched or torn allowing the esophagus to slide back and forth through the hole in the diaphragm. If she has a feeling like a golf ball stuck in her throat or difficulty swallowing, it is
quite likely that she has a sliding hiatal hernia.

Good luck in whatever you pursue

Just a quick follow-up for Jim /Walt

She is currently on Pantaloc(In Canada) and it has helped in taking away acid reflux attacks. Of course, doctor is reccomending this as life long treatment.

So does she stop the medicine and start GRJ or just stop the medicine because she is no longer having attacks and continue with SR. And is GRJ needed in the future ?

thanks in advance.

Hi, Dillon.

Keep up the pantaloc and start the GRJ.

As her symptoms reduce, during the GRJ 3 weeks, there would be no risk for stopping the Pantaloc and seeing what happens. Remember, the worst that can happen is that her symptoms might increase and she could then restart the Pantaloc.

The GRJ can be done again and again without danger but each 3 week course likely will work for less time. The long-term solution is to deal with the LGS. Be sure to have the Sr technique certified with biofeedback.

Let us know what happens.

Walt

Have her try a teaspoon full of Vinager. My wife has reflux/gastritous and takes this when it's bad, this cures it for a good while.
