Before we discuss about homeopathic treatment of GERD or acid reflux let us understand what allopathy has to offer.

In allopathy 4 treatment options are available.

  1. Antacids: Antacids neutralize stomach acid.
  2. Mucosal protective agents: These protect the lining of food pipe.
  3. Promotility agents: These cause the stomach to empty faster.
  4. Acid suppressive agents: These help to reduce the amount of acid the stomach makes. For example, histamine 2 receptor blockers and PPIs (proton pump inhibitors).

GERD or acid reflux is a chronic condition. Once it begins, it is usually lifelong. Due to acid reflux, there is injury in the food pipe, ulcer occurs and later it can turn to cancer.

I have noticed that once allopathy is started, the patient is not able to stop it. In fact, medicines get stronger over time.

If the patient tries to reduce allopathic medicines, then his symptoms come back which are as follows:

  1. Burning sensation in the chest
  2. Sour or bitter taste in the mouth
  3. Cough
  4. Difficulty in swallowing
  5. Bad breath
  6. Wheezing or asthma like symptoms

Allopathic treatment of GERD should not be taken in the following conditions:

  1. If you have kidney or liver problem.
  2. If you are on low sodium diet.
  3. If you are on thyroid medicines.
  4. If you are taking blood thinner.
  5. Pregnant ladies should also avoid antacids.

Now we will talk about the side effects of GERD allopathic medicines:

  1. Gas or belching
  2. Swelling in hands or feet
  3. Constipation
  4. Diarrhoea
  5. In females increase in prolactin, tenderness in breasts, milk production.
  6. Headache
  7. Dizziness
  8. Gynecomastia
  9. Reduction in the absorption of vitamins and minerals
  10. Weak bones
  11. Increase in the risk of heart attack and paralysis.

Homeopathic treatment can prevent these serious side effects and cure GERD from the root.

Homeopathic Treatment

According to my clinical practice, which I have been doing since 1997, there is amazing treatment for acid reflux in homeopathy and the patient does not have to take medicines for life.

I have seen that if the patient corrects his diet & lifestyle; and takes proper homeopathic treatment then his condition gets resolved within 1 to 2 years.

Kindly read this blog till the end as I will also inform about diet and lifestyle.

Once treatment is started it reduces reflux, relieves symptoms, and prevents further damage to the food pipe.

Homeopathic medicines do not cause side effects or addiction if given properly.

Medicine works quick and fast. Patient can take homeopathic medicines along with allopathic medicines. As the patient starts recovering from my medicines, I reduce his allopathic medicines gradually and finally stop them completely.

The most amazing thing about homeopathy is that anyone can take it – like children, pregnant woman, old people.

Number of Medicines

Homeopathy has around 124 medicines for GERD / acid reflux which are very effective. Now which of these medicines is to be given, in how much potency, how many times a day; this is a complicated process and only a highly qualified and experienced doctor can do it.

A sensible doctor does not give medicines only on the name of GERD / acid reflux. He takes complete history of the patient, note down all the symptoms then studies all the physical, mental, emotional symptoms properly. He then analyses the case properly. After this he selects the medicine keeping in mind the susceptibility of the patient and decide upon the potency and repetition.

In GERD or acid reflux I prescribe for 1 month and after that I review the patient again. Every month the case is restudied, and medicines and their potencies are fine tuned.

Nothing is fixed in homeopathic treatment; remedies change according to the condition of the patient. As I always say, “homeopathy is not readymade it is tailormade,” and it constantly changes according to the situation of the patient.

High level of skill is required to treat GERD.

How much improvement you get depends on which doctor you have chosen. These days KYC is done by banks and mutual funds; similarly, the patient should do KYD – Know your doctor.

Friends, in this blog I did not tell the name of the medicines, nor I have promoted medicines of any company. Because by doing this I will play with your health and harm you. A sane doctor will never do this.

Diet & Lifestyle Tips

Now I will give you some diet & lifestyle tips which are quite helpful in GERD or acid reflux.

  1. If patient is overweight, then he should reduce his weight.
  2. Quit cigarette smoking and avoid tobacco chewing.
  3. Do not wear tight clothing.
  4. Do not overeat; eat small amount of food at short intervals.
  5. Raising the head side of bed when sleeping.
  6. Sleep after 3 hours of dinner.
  7. Avoid following foods and drinks: Chocolate, Peppermint, Alcohol, Coffee, Aerated cold drinks, Citrus fruit juices, Rich fried fatty food, Spicy food, Tomato ketchup, Packed food, Flatulent foods like beans, chickpea, cabbage.

Friends, in my opinion homeopathic treatment is strongly recommended in all cases of GERD.

Homeopathic treatment corrects the problem of acid reflux, the damage to food pipe stops and it gets healed, eliminating the possibility of ulcers and cancer.

Homeopathic treatment is quick and fast. There are no side effects and gradually your allopathic medicines also stop.
