Gastroesophageal reflux

I cordially greet the Municipality, First I would like to pick up the quality of your site and efforts to bring the profile of many medicinal plants and undoubtedly useful to the general public in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. My question is directed to GER (Gastroefozageální reflux), which for several years I have suffered. Of course I use medications (Lanzul), but the improvement of the condition seems to be still in sight. I believe that even conventional natural medicines and herbs can hide some potential that could improve my condition and with it the quality of life. Could you please recommend some products from your menu that I could in this case be taken with a view of improving symptoms associated with my diagnosis? (Heartburn, bloating, recovery of gastric juices into the esophagus ..) As I understand that this is a very specific question, I will be grateful even for a private response to my e-mail or any advice. I thank you and wish you much success. Sincerely Ing. RT

Thank you for the nice words, sir, and sorry that the answer to the holiday. My answer to you but too well pleased, because it guarantees a little and is working for you. Yes, ginseng and goji (Goji) will certainly help slightly increasing the resistance of the esophageal mucosa to the gastric juice burns. If you but will help with the reflux itself, I do not know. But I've looked after the other herbs, but you must realize that gastroesophageal reflux disease is lengthy and protracted, and I physiologist rather than a herbalist. On the other hand, appreciate my work for you and other readers and do not take my recommendations seriously, otherwise you have laid upon it here on earth, but especially on Ono world.

About Gastroesophageal reflux know little

Gastroesophageal reflux is the only common manifestation, which can have various causes: mechanical, neural, connective tissue degeneration ... Lanzul (lansoprazole) that are taking only hinder the ability of your body to create hydrochloric acid. God knows what it is not therapy. Stomach acid and other bodies are missing, but apparently people with reflux have no other choice ...

Such a small pearl in the esophagus of portal links with the liver. Esophagus necessary because often metastasizes to the liver and vice versa, liver damage (eg cirrhosis) can cause varices of the esophagus . Again, I do not know if you have liver in order and if this connection in your case plays a role.

Perhaps treatment of ginseng and other herbs

Ginseng in your case has a chance to be helpful. If I had to believe interpretations of traditional Chinese medicine, ginseng and "silent thirst and heartburn." If I believe today's explorations and adaptogenic nature of ginseng protects cells from damage and promotes healing processes .

Ginseng research in detail divorce else to me but some suspect that I was with ginseng as the one with the hammer as everywhere sees nail - I did after Brechmanově example of systematic TCM search for herbs to treat "heart flushes" and "stomach heat, excess juices etc.". I know that at heart (probably) do not suffer , but the reflux is manifested "heartburn," anglofóni call it "Heartburn", so who knows if even those old Chinese way not confused.

The results of my research

Herbs to "hot heart": p lumula nelumbinis with strap nelumbinis, radix rehmaniae glutinosae, A ngelica sinensis, cinnabarum, ziziphi spinosae seeds, Akebia trifoliata, herba lophatheri gracilis.

Herbs for "Bitters", the excess juices and the like .: rhizoma imperatae cylindricae, cortex magnoliae officinalis concha ostreae, zingiberis rhizoma recens officinalis, poriae cocos sclerotium, mirabilitum, seeds phabitidis (Phabitis nil or P. purpurea), seeds Raphani sativa radix saussureae seu vladimiriae, fructus seu seeds mace, radix trichosanthis, tuber ophiopogonis japonica , radix glehniae littoralis, gypsum, rhizoma phragmitis communis, rhizoma coptidis (Coptis chinensis), Herb taraxaci mongolica, caulis bambusae in taeniis (Phyllostachys nigra, Bambusa breviflora or Sinocalamus beechelyanus).

Uff, but it was a lot of work ...

What now with

We see that we are among herbal medicines připlétají mineral substances: cinnabarum (vermilion), concha ostreae (powdered oyster shell), mirabilitum (magnesium sulfate) and gypsum (gypsum). While with cinnabar (cinnabarum) I would not recommend neexperimentovat the remaining three minerals may be important as a source of calcium and magnesium (mainly mirabilitum) and concha ostreae also due to the presence of calcium carbonate also direct neutralizing effect. In our country, we tend to gain minerals by drinking mineral water - buy a basic with some magnesium ions. Mineral drug mention basically just because you awoke this quack color TCM.

herbal candidates

Abundant herb, about whose health effects know almost nothing on this list chopped stalk of bamboo: caulis bambusae in taeniis. Furthermore, I ventured out of range of our interests arbitrarily discarded and not entirely safe seed morning glory (or, more recently Pharbitis nil Ipomoea nil).

Let us now those herbs which occur or are analogs in our flora. Mongolian dandelion (Taraxacum mongolicum) from that list will replace our dandelion (Taraxacum officinalis). It is common to eat like a dandelion salad, and people should not underestimate her. Wild plants to weeds in the role of vegetables in many cases exceed, as a "vegetable" mostly grown. This sentence would not be complete if I did not add it as a reference to Dr. Duke, who this about wild plants still says .

As for the reed (Phragmites), its rhizome is edible - it is news to me. I've never tried it, but it can get somewhere near water or dig up. I do not know if it helps or how it tastes, but it is the rule that wild vegetables is usually healthier and more nutritious than the refined, cultivated. Radish seed is readily available and can be a little sprout.

Eastern herbs - sedoulek, rehmannia, děhel, lotus, cardamom, ginger

The sedoulkem Japanese (Ophiopogon japonicum, tuber) personal experience I have, but that is not sufficient for any assessment. Sedoulek as drug enough value and is used in combination with ginseng for heart problems. Rehmannia root sticky (r adix rehmaniae glutinosae), the prepared oddly, in practice TCM widely used. It can be found in combination along with postmenstruační above also zmíněmným děhelem Chinese (Angelica sinensis) and other herbs. Lotus seed (seed nelumbinis) is considered nutritious food and also for medicine. Extremely bitter lotus embryo (plumula nelumbinis) which, because of its bitterness seed lotus removed before consumption, is itself the medicament with effect against inflammation and pain. The seeds of cardamom (fructus seu seeds mace) buy in kořenářství.

Young ginger root (rhizoma recens zingiberis officinalis) is available. It is fresh, preferably grated on strings, for meat dishes and soups. Ginger is like garlic - not to eat a lot, but it is extremely healthy and has antiviral effects. Ginger with its usefulness approaching ginseng until it difficult to appoint where all illness ginger helps. Even if your ginger gastroesophageal reflux cured, significantly raise the level of your health and immunity. Additionally, it is recommended consumption of garlic.

Other candidates

On the table next to us therefore remain, mostly oriental candidates: ziziphi spinosae seeds, Akebia trifoliata, herba lophateri gracilis, rhizoma imperatae cylindricae, cortex magnoliae officinalis, poriae cocos sclerotium, radix saussureae seu vladimiriae, trichosanthis radix, radix glehniae littoralis and rhizoma coptidis. With most of these plants I have a little experience. At least three of these candidates, magnolia (Magnolia officinalis), Imperata cylindrica and Coptis chinensis, is worth attention. Even more attention perhaps deserves pornatka coconut sponge (Poria cocos) and plant Saussurea / Vladimiria. Poria cocos, today Wolfiporia extensa, is extremely interesting fungus that produces woody underground tuber size coconut. Regarding the genus Saussurea, its most famous Saussurea Costus species is critically endangered hvězdnicovitá plant from the Himalayas, growing only above 4000 meters altitude. Saussurea Costus Fortunately, you do not hunt because the above-mentioned recommendations for the "excess stomach" refers to other species of the genus Saussurea and Vladimiria.

Reishi mushroom shiny and esophageal cancer

Outside the search list and I still wanted to turn your attention to the optional famous mushroom lesklokorce shiny . If you fancy its anticancer and adaptogenic effects, you can use the Reishi mushroom fruiting body milled in dosage from 0.5 to 1.5 grams per day (1-3 capsules).

in conclusion

The information that I have for you vybádal are like doors, behind which relief might be waiting and waiting maybe nothing. You learned it, you have to open - you have to put effort and try to get the appropriate herbs. Many of the recommended plant stands on the border between the vegetables, spices and medicines, so the dosage should be self-regulating and may be somewhat higher. The only exception is děhel in which do not exceed a dose of 3 g daily drugs (again according to Dr. Duke).
