Hiatus Hernia (GERD) (1 of 1)

From: Bill Poston

Subject: Upper Gastrointestional Symptom Relief

This is my testimonial to the relief I have discovered through Dr. Stoll and the information he furnished about ginger root juice.

A brief history about myself and my condition. I am a 57 year old male and have suffered from a hiatal hernia for over 25 years. My condition started many years ago with occasional heartburn. I treated this condition with over-the-counter ant-acids and as the conditon worsened I progressed to prescriptions for Zantac 150 mg. Over the years as I would have heartburn, I would take ant-acids and Zantac as needed.

In the last two years, my condition became so bad to where I was having heartburn almost constantly. I began to take Zantac 3 to 4 times every day. My esophagus became so sore and sensative that I began to have problems swallowing. Some days the condition was so bad I could only eat milk and cereal. I began to lose weight.

During this time I was seeing three medical doctors. Every doctor prescribed Zantac, Propulsid, Prilosec and Prevacid. I tried every combination of these medicines. Some combinations would give temporary help but the heartburn would return every time and was getting worse.

In February of this year, one doctor performed an endoscopy examination which showed some scarring of the esophagus. The treatment remained the same. Take the above medicine and eat only bland foods.

Nothing helped and my condition continued to become worse and worse. Just 30 days ago, I was seriously considering an operation to correct the hiatal hernia.

A few weeks ago, I began to search the Internet for help for my problem. I was reading messages posted to the Newsgroup alt.support.heartburn and saw a message where a man was having the same problems. We exchanged email and he introduced me to Dr. Stoll and his suggestion that ginger root juice could help my condition. The amazing thing to me was that Dr. Stoll was *not* asking for any money but had posted this treatment on the Internet free to all. When the man I had exchnaged email said the ginger root juice had helped him, I decided to try it.

I bought a juicer and some ginger root from a local farmer's market. I started taking the ginger root juice on September 8th. My first taste of the juice did cause a slight burning sensation in my mouth and throat. ( I actually made my wife test it first because I'm such a big chicken) As the juice travelled down my esophagus, I felt a slight warming sensation down my esophagus and into my stomach. The second day, the burning sensation was less and the warm feeling felt good. On the third day, my condition began to improve dramatically. By the fourth day I was able to reduce the amount of Zantac I was taking without having heartburn. On the sixth day of the juice treatment, my wife and I were able to go out and eat a large Italian supper with a hugh chocolate cake covered with chocolate icing. My stomach actually felt good. For the first time in months, I was able to eat a normal meal with no discomfort.

I made my second batch of ginger root juice last night. I make enough juice to last a week and keep the juice in the refrigerator. I believe the juice has healed my inflamed esophagus. I intend on taking the juice for several more weeks to make sure my esophagus continues to heal. Some time in the future, I may stop taking the juice but I feel very comfortable in the knowledge that I can start taking the juice again any time I need it. I have felt no side effects from taking the ginger root juice. The cost is insignificant.

In addition to the ginger root juice healing my inflamed esophagus, I also feel an overall improved conditon of health. After living with a constant, nagging and very painful stomach and esophagus for years, I now have a new and fresh outlook on my life.

**I feel great **

I cannot praise and thank Dr. Stoll enough for giving me this information about ginger root juice. I have already emailed Dr. Stoll my personal thanks for his help and I am going to contribute money to him to help him to spread the word about this remarkable cure for Upper Gastrointestinal Symptom Relief. Dr. Stoll was kind enough to personally reply to me about my email. Even that is remarkable in our modern world where the greed for money is the creedo for most doctors and people of all walks of life.

I am also telling everyone I know about this remarkable cure by email and snail mail. I welcome anyone to eamil me or call me with questions or comments.

Thankfully,

Hi, Dr. Stoll

I was diagnosed with GERD in February, 1994. This disease has given me insight into the world of herbs. I have your book "Saving Yourself". Would crystallized ginger work just as well as ginger juice. I'm only taking prilosec(20mg) in the morning. Would taking ginger in the morning interfere with my medication. Is there any herb or medication that would help strengthen the esophageal sphincter?? What vitamin is best for keeping your stomach lining in tone? I am glad I found your GERD webpage because I don't feel so alone with this disease.

Thank you,
Mimi

Dear Mimi,

The ginger juice will not interfere with anything else you might be taking.

I do not know if the crystals will do the same job. After 15 years I am still amazed at the effectiveness of the juice & no one has been able to explain why IT works. If you try it, & it works, I would be interested in your sharing your experiences with us here on the BB.

I've suffered with GERD and helicobacter (which has been eradicated) but continue problems from GERD; had been on prilosec, prevacid and recently until August 1 on 600 mg a day of zantac. But I discovered your ginger root juice remedy and have been taking since then with no medicine and doing remarkable well. I did stop for 3 days and my symptoms recurred so I started the juice again and have been fine. I'll take it indefinitely unless you tell me that I shouldn't cause it may harm me. I feel better than I have in years. Thanks to you. I'm going to buy your book soon.

Dear Mary,

Thanks for your testimonial about your success with the ginger juice. For the past 15 years--ever since I learned enough to recommend it--it has been 100% effective for this condition.

However, as I mention to anyone who will listen, the ginger juice is not a "cure" for this condition. It is just a remarkably safe, inexpensive & effective solution to the symptoms.

Since you mentioned getting my book I will say that that is probably the first place to start in understanding the causes behind your GERD AND the H. Pylori as well. Once you have those concepts under your belt, write again with any questions. As you get well, I hope you will take the time to help others with this resolvable problem by sharing your experiences on the BB.

Congratulations! You have already done the most difficult thing: approached this with an open mind. Many people would sooner die than have an open mind.

DR. STOLL-THANK-YOU FOR YOUR SPEEDY RESPONSE
could you please answer a few more questions?You
You explained that the sphincter does not close in gerd.In cases, it may be too tight, not opening therefore the feeling of food not passing through,(pressure in the chest)?
had motility studies done in '93 at my worst. They showed normal.DR. OFFERED nitro tab to open dialate the esophagus, I refused.
How often should endoscopies, motility studies be done?
I found that gastro specialists are apathetic toward the cause. Iwas told just to stay on the prepulsid and maybe it would go away!
Which is a more effective acid suppresser, Losec or Prevsid?
A Doc. at University Hospital in LONDON,ONT said that this is the disease of the NINETIES.MOSTLY tried the ginger juice this am, hohis a.m. Hope it works!

Dear LaDonna,

You need to read my book!!!!!!! See link at the bottom of this page. Then, when your GERD symptoms are gone, you might be able to help your surgeon boss learn something.

If you are not interested in the interconnections between everything you mentioned--& just want to get rid of the GERD symptoms--go to my homepage of this website (link below) & read about Hiatus Hernia. If this doesn't completely resolve those symptoms you will be the first person in more than 15 years that it did not do so.

When the GERD symptoms are gone, please share your experiences with the participants of this BB. If more people did that, you wouldn't have had to write your note--you would already be symptom free.

I've only just found your website. I have been suffering with gerd for three years. Last December I had the operation to close the opening of my esophagous to my stomach (hiatal hernia) had a three quarter wrap. It's now back worse than before. I have no life, the pain is excruciating. I take propulsid, prevacid, prilosec and antacids, I've tried everything to relieve the pain, but to no avail. All my Doctor does is Upper G.I's and endoscopies. Can you help?


Thank you,

Der Fred,

When you see how easy it is to eliminate these symptoms, you are gonna get MAD--as you should!

First, though, let's get rid of the symptoms. All you need to do is go to my homepage (see link on this page) and do what it says.

However, having said that, for space reasons this skeleton of a description about this problem will ONLY eliminate the symptoms. I dedicate several entire chapters in my book to the permanent resolutionn of this problem *see link at the bottom of this page).

As your symptoms disappear, I hope you will take the time to share your experiences with the rest of the participants of this BB. Perhaps you can save a lot of others from suffering the needless agony of what you have gone through.

You need to elevate the head of your bed 15-25 degrees. This will help to ease the hiatal hernia so you can rest. For the heartburn, believe it or not, a little buttermilk will give some temporary relief to heartburn, ulcers and a nervous stomach.

Good luck.

Dear Herman,

I learned that stuff in medical school 40 years ago. The conventional treatment has not changed since then.

When you are ready to get rid of all your props & resolve this problem, read what I have about it on the home page (link on this page) about hiatus hernia. Then, when you are ready to actually cure it, read my new book (link below).

As you get well, please share your experiences with the BB participants. Others deserve to know that the public is not being given the simple solutions to this vexing problem.

I have GERD. I had surgery to replace the valve in my stomach. I still take prilosec twice a day and proplisid. The indegestion and loss of my voice are also back. My question is: Will some kind of diet beside no caffeine, no fried foods, no alcohol, no carbonated drinks, no critis foods or drink. I already doing all of the above. Is there any thing else I can do. I've also been diagnosed with CREST syndrome. I've have run around a 100 degree temperature for about a year. This makes me very tired most of the time. I presently see 3 doctors on a regular basis-once a month.

Dear Mari,

You need to read a copy of my book & get at resolving this problem. Once you see how long the resolution of this problem has been known you are going to get angry.

In the meantime, you can get a headstart on getting rid of all your symptoms by going to the home page of this website & doing what it says under Hiatus Hernia (see links on this page).

THEN, as you get well, please share your experiences with the rest of the participants here on the Bulletin Board. Your resolution would at least let others, who are unnecessarily suffering juat as you have, know that there are solutions out there not being shared by the conventional medical monopoly. Once you are normal, & in control of your own health, what are the poor 3 docs you are supporting going to do for an income?

Jeff and Rob,
I'm not sure if this would be any help (perhaps Dr. Stoll could comment on this), but I recently bought a juicer (the shredding type) that seems to work reasonably well. I bought a ton of ginger not realizing how much juice I would get from what quantity. I would be quite willing to juice some and send it to you providing you could cover the cost of shipping. I imagine a baby food jar (5 oz?) would do you through three weeks.

This remeady seems to have worked for my wife.

What I am not sure about is how fresh the juice would be and how much freshness matters.

Let me know if you are interested or if anyone else who reads this is interested.

I've started drinking carrot juice since getting our juicer, so it has been a worthwhile investment for us. (and my 6 year old daugher loves stuffing carrots and watching juice come out).

Peter

Rob,
I Don't know if this will help, but....
Your letter sounds like you are describing my life.
My copy of Dr.Stoll's book is on order, but in the meantime, I'm avoiding foods that will bring about the Candida-type reactions. Those foods are: sugars of all kinds (especially fruits... the fructose is nasty for Candida sufferers), yeasts,vinegars, mold-containing foods....I would suggest getting a copy of "The Yeast Connection" by Dr. Wm. Crook. It won't wipe out the root cause (LGS), but it will make the journey to the cure more comfortable. After going on the "Yeast Connection" diet, my symptoms went away in less than 2 days. Hope this helps.

Don.

At this time of year (cool & cold) shipping would probably not damage the potency within a few days. This could be a new business for you! (grin)

I hope I put into the book & note on the website that about 2 1/2 to 3# is about right.

Dear Jules,

I used Levobid (for my patints) 30 years ago when I didn't know any better. When you are ready to stop playing that game & actually get rid of your symptoms, read what I have on my home page (link on this page) about Hiatus Hernia.

Then, when you have the symptoms under control, you might get interested in geting rid of the actual causes. That is when you would profit by reading a copy of my book (link below).

As you get well, please share your experiences with the bulletin board participants. Others deserve to know that they are not being offered all their options to resolve chronic conditions.

Why not get rid of your symptoms with the ginger juice? You can ALWAYS go ahead & have the surgery. Cheap, perfectly safe, effective in a few weeks----------what more could you want??? See this topic on the home page of this website (link on this page). Even better, if you want a permanent cure: get into the causes by reading my new book (link below).

In Reply to: Re: GERD posted by Heidi Frazer on December 10, 1997 at 19:32:56:

Dear Heidi,

The reason the person who made the diagnosis makes so much money is that it is considered the responsibility of that "professional" to fully explain this to you. It is YOUR responsibility to insist that s/he not just take your money & run but that you are fully satisfied with the explanation before you leave.

Since this diagnosis is a little different for each individual, that is the only real way to understand it as it is for YOU.

In the meantime, if the diagnosis is correct, you can get rid of the symptoms by just doing what I have on the homepage of this website (see link on this page).

Dear Cat,

Although it is true that infants & children will swallow nearly ANYTHING, regardless of how it tastes, I would be concerned that an infant would not take the ginger juice. It is well known that children will drink lye, kerosene, and the like--one of the dangers of leaving corrosive stuff around where kids can get it. However, an adult WANTING them to take something is a totally different story.

Fortunately, aspiration of ginger juice will not cause any known harm. This is the risk of forcing any child to take anything. This is the reason one must NEVER force a child to take mineral oil or codliver oil: they might choke & aspirate it into the lungs. ALL oils can cause damage to the lungs.

You might consider that I have been recommending pure ginger juice ONLY because 100% of people, who prepare it & take it as recommended, will get benefits. MANY people get results with much more dilute ginger. SOME even get results with ginger ale. Since it can do no harm, why not consider a much more dilute form as a trial for the child?

Let us know what happens.

By the way, frequently, infants have signs & symptoms of GERD when the real problem is LGS complicated by C-RS. You might read up on that.

Walt
