Dear Rosebloom

I printed out your reply re getting off med. I highlighted many parts of it and I am truly grateful. What is DGL please. I am awaiting the results of the biopsies. It will be another 10 days before I know. I am hoping that is is negative and that the barrage of antibiotics that I was on this summer triggered the situation I have now. I hate antibotics but they were unfortunately necessary and I was under a lot of stress at that time. I am a healthy eater, exercise regularly and weight appropriate. I am armed with your paperwork, a pamphlet on the Acid Reflux Solution Kit and am headed to our local health food store. Since I have only been on Acephex and Maalox for a couple of weeks now I am hoping I will be able to also wean myself off them. I hesitate to do anything until I see the Dr. in 10 days. In the meantime I am drinking lots of water, eating the right kinds of fruit, papaya etc. small meals , less carbs etc. For two nights now I have only had nausea that lasted 10 minutes and last night no stomach cramps and a little nausea. Compared to last week when the nausea lasted from 1:30 A.M. until morning. I spent the evening walking around outside in the dark feeling like I was leaving the world. I'd actually like to start the vinegar and water now but not sure if I should wait a few days. Or can I still take one 20 mg. of aciphex a day and try the vinegar and water? This has been a humbling experience and of all the research I have done your letter is putting me on the right path. I WILL pay forward. I am keep a log of my progress and it's only day three but I am seeing changes. I just need to get started on the Apple Cider Vinegar. Looking on the postive side of this. I will save alot of money not going to restaurants. Thank you. Gerdie xxx

Hi Gerdie: DGL is Licorice from which the substance that causes high blood pressure has been eliminated. It is sold in health food stores in lozenge form and you can suck on it to soothe and coat your irritated esophagus and throat. I am sorry I did not see your post earlier.

Rose
