Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a painful and dangerous ailment nobody really wants to talk about.
When I was a very young girl, I would get a stomach ache after combining cocoa and toast. I didn’t know what was wrong and I just ate what was put in front of me as all children do. As time went by, I learned to call the feeling “heartburn” because that’s what it was called. I always had a roll of Tums on hand.
One night when I was in my early 30s, I was doing my cabaret act at Fanny’s in San Francisco, when I experienced my first GERD attack. Scalding stomach acid made its way past my vocal chords and into my throat. I wasn’t old, I wasn’t fat, I wasn’t “sick” but I had GERD. It just didn’t have a name.
By the mid 1990s so many people were experiencing this ailment, that they named it Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease. My husband’s mother and his best friend died of Esophageal Cancer as a result of untreated GERD.
I was 60 when I woke up choking on my own scalding vomit. It had crept up into my throat and I had breathed it into my lungs. Horrid. Painful. Frightening. It took days before my lungs cleaned out the stuff I’d breathed into them.
I became hyper aware in my sleep and would spring upright when I felt the first sting. I would get out of bed and go to the kitchen where I would get ice cubes. For some 30 minutes I would swallow the biggest lumps of ice I could in an attempt to strip the acid off my vocal chords.
Yes, I had tried all of the OTC remedies out there, but nothing was working so I went to the internet for help. I searched everywhere for a natural remedy and stumbled upon a website which, like so many others, claimed to have the answer to my problem. But they were selling it.
In my desperation, I actually paid for the remedy and I’ve never been sorry – not for one single minute. I’ve not had a GERD incident in over 8 years.
I paid for it, and I share it with you:
When you feel the burn, eat a slice of fresh apple.
That’s all there is to it. But if your GERD is caused by your stomach creating too much acid, the apple neutralizes the acid almost immediately, and you have the delicious pleasure of eating an apple before you go to bed at night.
I hope you get results from this Natural Health remedy. Pass the knowledge on to others. Don’t sell it to them.
