A Burning Issue

Posted by Frankie on November 25, 1998 at 17:49:54:

Walt, Is it o.k. to have ginger root juice more than once a day. My GERD has flared up recently and once a day is doing no good. I have a hiatal hernia which is causing this condition and am thinking of going back to the old Propulsid and Pepsid. Also, if a hernia is the cause of this, how can skilled relaxation help? Please respond! It's a very uncomfortable way to live right now.

Dear Frankie,

You have noticed that I do not recommend that people only do the ginger root since it only gets rid of the GERD symptoms--------it does not do anything about WHY one would have GERD. If only the GRJ is done, eventually the symptoms will come back.

You have to understand the causes & mechanisms of LGS (always present before GERD arrives) to understand what to do & why. Without SR, all cases of LGS will recur--if they ever went away at all.

My book is the quickest way to learn what you have to know and why. Do not go to the index & just read about LGS & GERD. You will miss the entire point of the book. Read it all. It works like a unitary tool. See link on this page.

THEN, if you still have questions, write again. in the meantime, twice a day can't hurt you but would only put off your symptoms for a while longer anyhow--at best.
