Weak Esophageal Sphincter, Scarring
Hello Ted I have read your contributions on Earth Clinic with much appreciation and interest. I have suffered from chronic reflux and cough for the last 3 years, endoscopies have revealed slight scarring in my esophagus and i have been on various allopathic and homeopathic medications with no results to write home about. My lower osapghaul sphincter is weak hence the reflux, i am not overweight 83kgs and 5ft 11inc. I was wondering will the ACV with baking soda help with this problem, my concern is no matter the amount of acid in my stomach, if the sphincter is weak i will still have reflux right?
Dear Asif: Weak sphincter and scarring should mostly be helped with vitamin E 400 i.u. a day, some aloe vera juice,and magnesium chloride (250 mg) or magnesium citrate.Vitamin E and vitamin C sodium ascorbate 1000 mg both are required to aid in the healing of the stomach lining.I am assuming the microbes staph like does not exist,if they do, magnesium chloride will kill them naturally and so will 1/4 teaspoon or 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric taken 3 times a day. There might be other organism such as candida, and fungus, but most of them are rid of whenever you alkalize. If it is not working just add a small pinch of borax to the drinking water,which is closer to about 1/16 teaspoon in 1 glass of water for minor mycobacterium causing this taken only for 2 or 3 days.
