Traumas and Acid Reflux

Posted by Donna (Issaquah, WA) on 03/14/2008

I have been using the 2 Tablespoons of ACV and 1/4 teaspoon BS. I also just starting using a diluted solution of hydroproxide 50/50 solution 6 sprays in the mouth, just started this today. The reason I have been doing this is that I was on a lot of meds and realized I had Acid Reflex after taking priolsec and feeling all symptoms go away, problem was the side affects. Then I found your site and I have been reading and reading but am confused. The symptoms seem better, I have been on the ACV-BS for 5 days and will rest the next two. I understand that I should do this for 4 to 6 weeks. But my Ph urine is 5to 6 which is too acidic. My saliva is 7. So I thought maybe I should just take BS. I have stools most of the time this week 2 to 3 times a day. Seems like what it should have been. In the past it has been every 2 or three days. For the last year I have been taking fish oil and this helps me elemenate. I have dealing with depression and issues in therapy which I know my body responds to. I have also been doing body work. I guess my question is, Ijust want to feel better, the wheezing and asthma due to Acid reflex is the worst. Its hard to exercise when you feel so crummy. I dont sleep at night and havent for a long time because of the bad dreams due to abuse when I was little. I need to deal with this stuff. So any ideas? Its hard to give up my l day of cola. Anything would be appreciated

Most of the acidity comes from cola and it has phosphoric acid causing the excess acidity. The only safe way to reduce the excess acid because of the caffeine addiction, assuming caffeine is the real cause, I would replace this with green tea. Some people are hooked on to the flavoring of the cola, which some companies or candies companies due have cola gummy gels that can be eaten instead in small amounts along with the green tea. The lack of sleep is the long term accumulation of fluoride and it clogs the pineal gland so perhaps some tamarind or borax remedy can help with the sleeping. However, I may try the GABA supplements, pregnenolone 50 mg and the DHEA to reduce that kind of depression. As to the lack of sleep some melatonin 3 mg may help if taken during the night. To further effectively alkalize the body a newer carbicarb seems to work better, and the remedy is as follows: 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/4 teaspoon of sodium carbonate in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day, or if necessary three times a day. This seems to do a more thorough job in alkalizing. To further help trauma of past related conditions and reduce that problem during childhood, I think downloading brainwave generator and play on a computer speakers of headphones seems to do a great job, but also certain vitamin B complex can help that too.' The basic programs can be downloaded for free and I have actually contributed some sound there, although unrelated to depression myself. However the basic program should be helpful for many people: If people deny it's dramatic effect or have a larger budget, there is another similar technologies called brain state technology that caused the owner's child and his friends to make it to the dean's list as well as good scientific explanation on how trauma can be treated, What the brainwave generator does, at least the shareware version is that it allows the brain to form new neural connections and reduce the trauma conditions so that by conditioning of theta, alpha, beta waves will allow the trauma conditions to reduce. If you are creative enough you can create other signals, to further help without the use of drugs. I sometimes use aromatherapy, especially narcissus oils to reduce depression and anxiety by putting the fragrance on the pillow. Vitamin C sodium ascorbate 1000 mg also helps too.
