Overall, the great majority of patients in each group were pleased with and reported benefit from their treatment regimen. More than half reported greater symptom relief with lansoprazole or esomeprazole compared with prior therapies. Perhaps most importantly, over 85% of patients would recommend the use of either lansoprazole 30mg or esomeprazole 40mg once daily to someone else with heartburn.

In late 2011, Mayo Clinic tried to help with the problem and have determined I have no Hiatal mussel therefore I have a straight shot from my mouth directly to my stomach, so stomach acid can flow freely from my stomach to the esophagus causing the acid burn. I have had 3 Hiatal Hernia operations locally and even one other at Mayo Clinic to try to help with the acid reflux problem.

HEALTHCARE Q&A

This is possibly because obesity increases the risk of suffering from acid reflux due to the pressure on the stomach. “Most of us will experience indigestion or acid reflux at some point but if symptoms persist for two or three weeks, it’s important to seek medical advice to obtain a diagnosis,” explains Dawn. Acid reflux is a condition rather than a symptom. It is caused by acid flowing back up from the stomach into the oesophagus.

Being overweight can also contribute to GERD since those who are overweight are at increased risk for developing hiatal hernia. A new, strong valve created with minimally invasive robotic surgery prevents acid reflux and provides drug-free relief from acid reflux symptoms. Dr. Berkowsky, a registered naturopath, master herbalist and classical homeopath–is President of Joseph Ben Hil-Meyer Research, Inc.

As regards GERD, counterflow chi, propelled in part by “liver invading spleen,” manifests as upward movement of stomach acid and gases as opposed to its normal downward movement. Vital Power, via the tonification of the body’s chi in general and spleen-pancreas and stomach chi in particular, helps reverse counterflow chi.

While I was in the hospital about 6 weeks ago getting a new J-Tube replacement in my belly, the hospital Gastroenterologist was visiting me and I told her of the acid reflux problem I was still having. She said, “you have the same problem my husband has had for years and he has been taking a non-prescription pill and he swears that it has helped with that problem”. Now for what I have that seems to help with the nighttime Acid Reflux. This has helped but I still get the night time acid reflux burn.

He is the founder/teacher of both Spiritual PhytoEssencing and the Natural Health Science System which he designed following many years of research and clinical practice, and includes herbology, nutrition, homeopathy, aromatherapy, exercise, traditional nature-cure as well as East/West healing arts/bodywork. Dr. Berkowsky teaches in-depth seminars/teleseminars/workshops to health-care professionals and spiritually aware individuals. GERD is considered to be the result of “liver invading spleen” and symptoms such as acid reflux, dyspepsia and biliousness are a direct result of rebellious liver energy entering the stomach and causing havoc. Thus traditional chi tonics contain a variety of herbs, which not only invigorate the body’s life force in general but also spleen chi in particular.

The Vagotomy used to automatically be done on the earlier hiatal hernia surgeries to prevent the buildup of stomach acid. Hi Charlene, I did in fact purchase a adjustable bed it has helped my acid reflux at night but still have it during the day. I am also on a CPap machine which may be helping also.

Lately I have noticed pain in my shin bones does anyone else have this?
