I know this may be OT, but so much knowledge here. I had a total hysterectomy summer of 2008 and a thyroidectomy last summer. Unfortunately found curzone AFTER these surgeries, but water on the bride now. Since my surgeries, I notice I get heartburn fairly often and never did before. Suggestions? or any links?
Try 1 tsp of fresh ginger root juice every morning on an empty stomach for 2-3 weeks. Meanwhile, practice meditation or some other type of relaxation daily (forever). See http://www.askwaltstollmd.com.
We find that 1 part Apple Cider Vinegar (Braggs as Wombat sz) and four to five parts H2O knocks acid reflux back almost every time. Do it right away, at the fifrst hint that aciud reflux may occur. It can work. My sweetie at times unfortunately has had to take a several medications that cause reflux. And in typical doctor fashion, was prescribed expensive meds (Nexium) to counter expensive meds. No more.
The Bragg's would definitely be more convenient than ginger juice. However, for me, personally, I have found that ACV aggravates GERD. Makes my stomach feel like I have just swallowed gasoline that was set on fire.
