Acid Reflux, Burning in Throat, Ears and Chest

Posted by Jyoti (Galloway, NJ) on 09/07/2006

Fosamax and then Actonel are the main culprits.I have been suffering for 4 years now.There was no heartburn in the beginning,just a feeling of something stuck in throat.Doctors keep changing medications but nothing works.Lifestyle changes havnt helped at all. Drank whole bottle of ACV in the last 35 days.vNo effect.vTried chewable DGL ,no effect. Have lost faith in doctors now. All they want to do is do a scope of my throat which is very expensive. Now there is burning in throat, ears, chest etc. I have stopped osteoporosis medication also. Can anybody help? I am 51 years old lady.

Acid reflux could be your body's buffers are depleted or your it is a helicobacter pylori issue. Often when this happens a simple emergency is to take some 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda twice a day or three times a day, mixed in 1/2 glass of water.

Also take plenty of vitamin B complex. To kill the helicobacter pylori that may cause acid flux too, is to take fulvic acid. Of course you won't find fulvic acid easy to find, so another substitute that can kill helicobacter pylori is to take apple seeds, apricot seeds, zinc acetate (50 mg/day) and selenium yeast (200 mcg/day).
