I am having symptoms which as far as i can tell resemble EERD. I am wondering if there are any homiopathic treatments that would be good to try as i dont really like taking medications?
Hello
do you mean GERD

and what do you mean by homeopathic...that term is not well understood by most people

Let me know if you have further questions

Yes sorry GERD and i am meaning anything other than over the counter or prescription drugs that might be things to try first.
You need an h pylori breath test to make sure you don't have the ulcer bug, which requires antibiotic.

As far as natural treatment
combined acupuncture [Chinese] with OMT, oteopathic manipulative therapy.

Home remedy
Flax seed tea, 1 TBS to cup steeped 5 minutes
3 to 5 cups a day.

Bed raised on blocks 6 inches at the head

Nutrient dense diet...see Eat to Live by Dr. Joel fuhrman
