I have suffered the GERD problem for a year and nothing could help much. The doctors had advised and prescribed Asthama medicines and inhaler pump since the situation was out of control.

For a year almost every night, soon after lying down, I had a terrible cough attack and it did not go away unless I vomited everything I had in dinner.

I took a few medicines but never took the asthama medicines. And kept searching for a cure in ayurveda and homeopathy.

Ayurveda remedies like eating as per vata, kapha or pitta helped and also fasting and eating early and having no water after a meal helped a lot.

But the problem did not go away completely and after my research on homeopathy I found the medicine that suited me completely and I was cured of GERD.

The name of the homeopathic medicine I will not put here, but if you’re interested to know, you can comment below or send me a personal message.
