Reflux acidity

4 years back i had reflux acidity and i was advised Domstal-O for 30 days followed by Omeprazole20 for 3 months. I got relieved. But the problem has re-occurred after 4 years. Can i repeat the medication again.

Does lemon water help reduce acidity?

Nat Phos 6x is your remedy.

Stop taking all drugs and antiacids that you used in the past and take 2 tablets of Nat Phos 6x after lunch and dinner. This remedy works by promoting peristalysis in the stomach and prevents the formation of acidity.

Do not eat any heavy meals for a few days to help your stomach to recover and report results in 3 days.

Nat Phos 6x will also reduce weight if taken regularly in the same dose.

One question -- Do you get hunger pains before meals ? These are a sign of the stomach acid and enzymes eroding the mucus lining of the stomach and we may have to treat this condition separately.

thanx Joe for the speedy reply. I do not have hunger pains before meals. Its just that acid propels from stomach to mouth and causes discomfort in throat(irritation) and vomitting sensation.

Please tell the duration for which nat phos 6x is to be taken.

One important query- I am already underweight. Is Nat Phos 6x going to reduce weight further?

You can take Nat Phos 6x for as long as you feel the need. It promotes peristalysis and thereby prevents the acid reflux that you are now suffering from. You will notice the relief almost immediately after a meal when you take it. It is quite safe to be used even daily.

It will not reduce your already low weight which I think is due to your hyperacidity. It will only reduce weight if you are overweight. What is your weight and height ?

Eat small meals but more often if you feel hungry. Stay away from fatty food which is difficult to digest and causes acidity.

Regular exercise is essential to condition your body to increase the demand for food. Jogging is recommended depending on how old you are.

Go to bed 2 hours after eating a small dinner to prevent acid reflux.

I have replied your email copied below:

I am glad to learn that your acid reflux problem has been solved with Nat Phos 6x.

You do not have to take it daily but I would like you to keep a stock with you, at home, in office and even in your car to be used whenever you feel uncomfortable after a meal. You may use it quite safely as it is Sodium Phosphate which is used in the formulation of drugs used in allopathic medicine with the exception that the concentration at 6x is just 1/ Million Millionth of the salt.

If you are overweight you may like to know that this same remedy can reduce your weight at the rate of about 2-4 kg per month. The dose to be used for weight reduction is 2 tablets taken after lunch and dinner. Feel free to recommend it to your friends who may be overweight.

Na Phos is a new one to me for reducing weight . I believe in India obese people are prescribed Phytolacca B. 6x . I gave it once to 2 patients but both stopped taking it because they got diarrhoea!!!

It is a coincidence that you mentioned that two patients had reported diarrhoea after taking Phytolacca 6x.

It was only yesterday that a patient who had been using Nat Phos 6x for a few weeks to reduce weight reported that he had reduced his weight by about 3kg but that he was having soft stools. When I questioned him, he told me that he did not object to this new routine as he was usually constipated. It was the success of this remedy to reduce his weight that he was most interested in and he insisted that he continued with it. I suggested however that he should take a lower dose of just 1 tablet after meals and he will report on how it helped him in due course.

I believe that I now have more reason to believe that NP works by accelerating the passage of food through the small intestines thereby reducing the absorption of the fatty components of the food into the inner linings of the gut. It is possible that Phytolacca also works on this same principle.

There is no doubt in my mind that NP is the ultimate choice to reduce weight and I hope that it will help the obese of this world who are now counted at 65% in the developed countries, to reduce weight safely.

I do hope that more and more publicity will be made in the world media that there is still hope for the obese to lose weight safely and what is also relevant, very cheaply, if they use just 2 tablets Nat Phos 6x after lunch and dinner.

Please note it is Phytolacca Berry not the normal Phyto D. that we use.

I visited this site recently for my acidity problem. Heartburn and acidity were severe. Iím 28 yrs old , 5í9íí height and 85kgs(187lbs) weight. I was given rabeloc 20mg from allopathic doctor for 15days. All was fine only during the time of taking medicine. As soon as I stopped it re appeared.

Just I read Joeís answer for taking Nat Phous 6x. Iím taking it for last 4 days. (After lunch and dinner -2 pills) Actually by Godís grace the problem is not appearing. I donít have acidity now. I will post my response after 15 days.

Thanks a lot Joe. Really Thanks.

I am so glad to learn that Nat Phos 6x has helped you.

It has helped many hundreds, perhaps even thousands of others to whom I prescribed it both here in Sri Lanka and throughout the world on this and other Forums and by email.

I am happy that you took the time to share news of your relief from your severe acidity problem with me and others who contribute to this forum.

You do not have to take it as a matter of routine after every meal as your stomach will soon adapt itself to the lack of irritation that you have suffered from with the hyperacidity and you should soon be able to stop the remedy completely. You can try reducing the dose gradually and take it only when you need it which is when you feel full after a meal.

This is the bonus in using Homeopathic remedies to treat any ailment as they promote the curing of the ailment from within the body instead of supressing it as is usually done by most allopathic drugs which should only be used on a SOS basis if all other remedies fail.
