Thank you for sharing this. I am started suffering from GERD after taking Aleve for 3 days and then having some weird tasting food at the Thanksgiving potluck. Not sure what I am having, but it feels like GERD... heartburn and pain. The doctor said that it could not be any bacteria from food I ate at the pot luck since I had no diarrhea.. but after a month of an extremely GERD friendly diet and Zantac I still have pain that gets worse when I lay down... can't believe 3 Aleve pills could cause that. Either way, I wanted to share what supplements helped me with GERD in the past and what helped me now:
I remember suffering from GERD 5 years ago, these 2 remedies helped me to forget about my stomach issues for 2.5 years untiol this Thanksgiving:
DGL (has the stomach benefits but no side effects of licorice, always helped me with GERD before)
potato juice (juice 1 raw potato in the morning and drink 20 min before food)
Recently, these 2 did not help much, so I tried more things and what helped was:
papaya (several pieces at the end of the mean, they say it helps due to enzymes)
Aloe vera juice (I bought the juice Lilly of the desert stomach formula, Amazon has it and the reviews are true. This one was very helpful!)
I hope that this will help for those who suffer from GERD and want to treat it the natural way. Good luck everyone!
