question for joe re: gerd remedy Page 7 of 7

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Dear Doctor,

I am really thankful for your wonderful therapy. I added Nux Vomica 30C wet dose in the therapy.

Now I am feeling OK but acidity is not completely gone yet, i am feeling burning sensation in stomach and throat, but upper abdominal pain gone and i have reduced almost 2 KGs in last 2 weeks.

Should i continue the same therapy ? how many days ? and dose ?

Thanks & Regards

I hope you understand that yours was a CHRONIC case of GERD from which you have suffered from for many years. I believe that I succeeded in treating and hopefully curing you in just bout 2 weeks since you first posted your case on the ABC. You will have to continue to take these 2 remedies for the rest of your life as they will help you to overcome your 2 ailments. You have already discovered:
'Now I am feeling OK but acidity is not completely gone yet, i am feeling burning sensation in stomach and throat, but upper abdominal pain gone and i have reduced almost 2 KGs in last 2 weeks.”

This improvement in your state of health will continue into the future and you will hopefully observe the instructions I have given you in my post of February 17 and I refer especially to the paragraph on exercise which is essential for your well being.

Nux V is designed to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x and you may continue it for as long as you feel that it is needed and stop it when your GERD has stabilised. It is NOT for daily use, even in the Wet dose.

You will however continue to take NP 6x dose 2 tablets after every meal and watch your weight reduce by 1kg per week. It is absolutely safe in daily use.

Hello Joe,
I also have an 8 month old that has had night waking issues for months. I now suspect he is dealing with acid reflux as he has been spitting up a lot during the day. Then at night he does not want to lay down in his crib. He cries and cries. He also has had issues with constipation as well.

I have started him on Nat Phox 6x and am hoping it will help. I am unclear as to the dosage though. Can I put the tablet directly into his bottle or does it need to be given in a tsp of water after he has had a bottle? Is there anything I can also give him for constipation and night waking issues? Maybe the Nat Phox will help with these issues as well.

I do not know for sure if he has acid reflux but I am thinking that is what he has. We have had nights where it take a few hours to calm him down from crying before we can lay him back down in his crib after he has had a bottle. I feel like laying him down after a feeding is when he has pain. The few days I have given him Nat Phox 6x I have noticed less spitting up during the day. I have read that one person gave her baby one pill at ever feeding for 2 weeks and then her babies reflux was better. Is it ok to give a pill at ever bottle? I backed down the dosage after 24 hrs and then my baby had a really bad night of screaming. So I feel like I need to give him more dosage for some time. I look forward to your suggestions.

Glad to learn that you have already give your 8 month old my default therapy for Baby GERD Nat Phos 6x, which has helped hundreds of babies throughout the world very safely till their own digestive systems are able to cope. I note that he is also constipated and this may be the root cause of his distress and NP will help his constipation usually in 24 hours while it will help his GERD in under 2 hours, which is the norm.

I shall now copy my default therapy for Baby GERD.

I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed to hundreds of babies and which I hope will help your baby too.

The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

Nat Phos 6x tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. Start with half tablet but if the response is not as expected, you may increase to a full tablet but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby's digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

I prefer not to be addressed as “Joe” except by my peers and close friends, as in my country Sri Lanka, there is a certain modicum of respect reserved for age.

I am 85 years old.

Dear Sir,

My sincere apologies for addressing you as Joe. I assumed this was the best way to address you from previous posts.

Thank you for your response. I am not nursing anymore, so my baby is getting goat milk formula. I am just curious if I can put the tablet into the bottle or if I must give it with water after his bottle?

How will I know if the tablet is working? He had quite a bit of spit up this morning after his bottle. I'm sure he spit up the Nat Phos 6x I gave him too. I have been giving him a half tablet in every bottle. I'm assuming I should back this down. Thank you for your advice

Dear Sir,
I would like to report progress on my 8 month old son. His throwing up after a bottle has slowed down some. I have been putting half of a pill of Nat Phos 6x in his bottle which comes out to about 6 tablets in 24 hrs. If I gave it to him after the bottle he would tend to throw up some of his bottle as usual and then would not keep down the Nat Phos. He has been burping very well.

We are struggling with him teething at the same time. I'm not sure if this can cause stomach issues or not. Our son still struggles at night. He does not want to go to sleep. I don't want to over feed him so it causes issues with his reflux, but it ends up being the only way to get him to get sleepy. If he is not sleepy enough, he cries after his bottle and the crying can last for a long time. I think he would keep taking a more bottles if I gave them to him. I think he partly does not want to go to bed, but I also know that laying him down in his crib after his bottle has been an issue with the reflux too.

Is there anything else I can give him to help him be more calm when it's sleep time. His anxiety about naps and night time are so hard to deal with. I don't know if it's reflux or teething or not wanting to go to bed. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Thank you

Glad to note that his problem with Reflux is under control.

Chamomilla 30c in the Wet dose can help teething problems and you can give a teaspoonful twice daily.

Good to know that even without my advice, you have identified Arnica to help your husband. You may be aware that I was responsible to promote Arnica since 1996 and at age 85 I have proved that it is the Ultimate Remedy to help keep the ageing body in peak condition. I take a teaspoonful every night before bed and wake up refreshed without any ache or pain in my body.

I have treated many cases of post TURP trauma with Urine retention and frequent visits to the toilet. You will give him Arnica 6c in the Wet dose thrice daily and report his response in 24 hours.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

Do not use Coffee, Cola beverages, preserved foods like sausages, ham and bacon as they contain Saltpeter.

Hi Joe,
My name's Nicole. I went to the ER today but didn't end up staying to get treated because it would've cost me a thousand dollars. I have the sensation like there's something lodged in my throat and it's very uncomfortable. It feels almost as if there's a piece of meat stuck there and it won't go down. The feeling is giving me so much anxiety and I feel very constricted and can't sleep. I'm worried because a year and a half ago , I had this exact thing happen and I went and spent so much money on all these tests and they put a camera down my throat and saw that whenever I ate, that food would get stuck and one of the main swallowing muscles was lazy and not working properly to get the food down,, and i'd have to wait hours for that sensation to leave until the food finally dissolved. It was maddening and the dr's were perplexed until finally one of them found out a certain medicine I was taking at the time in rare cases could cause this . I stopped taking it and it finally went away. But at the time i was so worried I was going to have to live with it not working properly. Now the sensation is back and i'm so worried. Even when I don't eat though, it feels like something is lodged in middle part of throat and even mucous feels like it could be stuck. I so desperately need it to be freed up. I'm taking presciption medication right now for a serious condition I have & have taken these 3 drugs w/out feeling this sensation of it food being stuck for about 8 months now.. i'm taking Seroquel 50mg, Topomax 25mg, and Lyrica 75mg. I'm weening off the Topomax and about a week ago started taking Xanax. Also a week ago I introduced homeopathic HGH spray . Those are the only 2 new things I introduced.. I wonder If i should stop both??? I also took bee pollen a couple days. I don't know... Needing some direction. The clinical term for what I have is called Globus Hystericus i believe... but there also could be a good chance there is food not swallowing down because the swallwing muscle isn't functioning properly. Please help me!

Also... have you ever helped anyone with skin issues ( damaged skin, etc)

Thanks so much Joe

I wish that I was able to help you but you must understand that I cannot do so from Sri Lanka where I live as your problem is far too complicated for treatment on a forum like the ABC.

You have posted on a thread which pertains to GERD but I do not think that your problem has anything to do with this ailment which seems to be very common in developed countries.

You are advised to consult a physician preferable an ENT doctor who can diagnose your problem and treat you.
Joe De Livera 9 years ago
ok. Are you sure there is nothing to take for globus hystericus? ( the feeling that there is something in throat when swallowing ) that comes on from stress? That i could at least try?
Nicwill7 9 years ago
I can attempt to treat your condition. Globus hystericus is definitely a condition that homoeopathy is quite capable of treating, and that I have treated before.

If you will start a new thread, I will post a questionnaire so we can gather enough information to make a confident prescription.

So I take it you are not interested in having me attempt to help you.
Evocationer 9 years ago
Oh no i'm so sorry! I definitely am.. thank you so much.. I have had a lot on the last week. I am close to going to the ER.. am in Canada at the moment helping take care of my grandmother. It feels though that it is more serious then globus. It literally feels that everytime i eat, that food gets stuck and doesn't swallow down all the way... almost as if my swallower muscle isnt working correctly and has narrowed or something. Its the most horribly constricting feeling because it even feels once the food finally dissolves where it gets stuck, then it feels like almost mucus or spit gets stuck there and i am just CRAVING to have the feeling where things just swallow down smoothly. I cannot stand this feeling. I'm praying it isn't anything serious. Have you ever heard of anything like this? Thank you so much for replying to me Evocationer. x
Nicwill7 9 years ago
Make a new thread so that I can post a questionnaire for you to answer, and we can keep it separate from this old thread.
Evocationer 9 years ago
Let me know if you want to start treatment with me.

Hi Joe

Been taking Nat Phos 6 to great effect for GERD, I now have some wet ARNICA 6X Liquid Rems. (23% alc., not sure how to take this, is it 2 drops to 500ml of water? or one tea spoon straight from the bottle twice a day?

Many thanks for the advice on this forum

Joe De Livera is not active on the forum anymore.
He is 85 now, and you may be able to talk with him on his own site- joe delivera.com.

Joe is not a dr or homeopath. He liked to experiment and came up with nat phos 6x cell salt and using arnica 30c in water
As a protocol for gerd.

Nat phos 6x is a natural acid reducer. Some people, who have
Made too many acidic food choices over time,
And habits of eating these foods often- start to
Experience gerd because the body cells are
In an acidic ph instead of an alkaline ph. With
Right diet, and staying off acidic foods for a few weeks, the gerd
Will stop and then you can have acidic food now and then again.
Nat phos helps with temporarily reducing effects,
But to cure you must check your diet as the main cause and modify.

Joe added in arnica to almost everything -
If you are doing better with the Nat phos, there is no need for arnica.
You can also make your own thread and ask for
Someone to prescribe if you feel there are symptoms left that need to be
