Default Acid reflux causing suffocation

A friend is terrified by these attacks and I wonder if anyone knows of anything (not a prescribed drug) that might mitigate the situation. She lives alone and is in constant fear of dying.

First of all if she takes any medication that will make it worse. Tell her to avoid all processed foods and try to stick with raw foods for a few weeks. Avoid cooking with a microwave oven. Ensure there are no gas or carbon monoxide leaks from gas appliances. Avoid anything containing MSG (Monosodium Glutamate). Take a spoonful of bicarbonate of soda mixed in a glass of water every evening before going to bed OR avoid fluoride toothpaste and brush with Bicarb. then rinse with something like vinegar in water or food grade hydrogen peroxide (or mix the bicarb with grapefruit seed extract). I believe swallowing Bentonite clay would be helpful too.

Personally, I've found citrus to be very healing. I squeeze fresh lemon or lime into my drinking water every day. I eat oranges most of the time

Crickey , that was quick!! .. the print was hardly dry on the paper and I get two replies!
She has been put on six months of medication: and after 4 months no improvement and she's being sent for speech therapy.
I'll let her have your suggestions in the morning. I was thinking of bicarb, but, without being her, I wasn't sure whether to suggest it as I wouldn't know its effects on her larynx.

Many thanks, Little Miss. Night time may be the worst time, so your advice about posture will be reassuring for her.

Also, it will help her to know that there are a couple of other people who know what she is having to live with.

It happens to me occasionally and only if I eat after 8pm. A small drink of water and a half slice of dry sourdough bread works for me, it seems to soak up the fluids. I've been prescribed Nexium but don't take them.

If you are overweight, then losing some pounds will help. If its extreme, get checked out for a hiatus hernia because constant irritation of stomach acid can cause oesophageal ulcers and cancer.

Default Maybe not enough Acid?

I suffered Acid reflux for over 40 years. I could be sick/nauseous any time of the day. Tried all the GPs recommendations nothing worked.
At the age of 62 I went on holiday to a place where I couldn't get fresh milk, so I changed my breakfast menu to an orange, bread, tea and nuts.
After three days I noticed I wasn't being sick and so on for the next 11 days.
When I got back home I started eating an orange first thing and have been gloriously well since.
Sometimes I will get nauseous after eating, I simply eat an orange and within minutes back to feeling good.
Try it , after all it's only the cost of a bag of oranges.

Yes, very often it's because of a lack of stomach acid. Research betaine. Also, apple cider vinegar (with mother) in the morning with breakfast.

My baby has severe acid reflux, he chokes on it (silently) goes blue & then unconcious within minutes, needs help to come round, this can happen up to 15x a day. the acid rises & gets stuck in the oesophegus (sp) Medicine has saved his life.

Thank you everyone for all the help and ideas for my friend with the gastro reflux: I've passed on all the suggestions; some of which she will be able to try.
Lots of Love to you All!

I know nexium works as a family member had it, but if you want to avoid meds I suppose just avoid junk food like the other posters above have said. It's a horrible condition. No proper sleep as you wake up gasping for air all the time.

Thank you White Zombie. I'll pass on your observations to my friend, and then it's up to her. She's wedded to her microwave and readymeals, but I've poiinted out the down-side of these. With more people saying the same kinds of things, she may take more note.

My nearly-nightly reflux/suffocation attacks
stopped the day I stopped drinking milk...

It was an unexpected benefit
from my decision to kick dairy...





I wonder if that was part of eddieb's
successful acid transition, as well...?

Dairy/lactose allergy causes reflux symptoms.

Many thanks, Little Miss. The more people who post their own experiences, the more that the evidence stacks up. This is much appreciated.
