BTD Forums  /  The Encyclopedia/ D'Adamo Library  /  Can Homeopathy cure acid reflux
Posted by: 1406 (Guest), Wednesday, November 21, 2007, 10:48am
Hi there, Ive had acid relux for about a year now. Ive tried chemical drugs but it seem not to be improving, it rather makes breathing difficult for me.

Ive heard about Homeopathy treatment and would want to give it a try. Does anyone know if it can help the reflux.

Worried Girl. :'( :'( :'( :'( :'

How long have you been on the Blood Type Diet? Has the BTD helped your acid reflux problem? I would expect it to help a lot with that problem.

If you are not having great results with the BTD and are following the type A secretor recommendations, then you might want to try using the type A non-secretor recommendations and see if you get better results. The best thing would be to get your secretor status tested, but I realize you may have trouble getting that done in Ghana.

Bastyr used to say that homeopathy can cure any condition, but not every patient.  I kind of agree. Generally, the type A diet and some daily green tea usually work just fine.

I had acid reflux and it was cured completely with tht BTD. No special  supplements.
The type A diet really does work. Unles you have an underlying medical condtion like H. Pyloi or hiatal hernia.  A simple test that takes about 20 minutes an upper Endosocopy would diagnose those.
  
  
Are you checking the ingredients in the packaged food you buy? Even a small avoid will make a difference.
Wheat avoidance is essential to getting rid of acid reflux.
I also like to put bitters in a glass of pineapple juice to increase acid production prior to a meal.
As much as we think acid reflux or GERD is caused by too much acid it is really from too little.

   Typical of A's to have low  stomach acid production, thus a diet that is easy to digest, and helps promote digestion is essential to health.

if I now can get secretor testing done here, I believe it is done in Ghana, too! ;)

try public or private hospitals, in their blood banks preferably.

Quoted from Andrea AWsec

Unless you have an underlying medical condtion like H. Pyloi or hiatal hernia.  


I certainly have hiatal hernia and used to have terrible fits of chest pains which became more and more frequent. As I started BTD the symptoms vanished instantaneously. Too much ice cream (that's where I sinned during Summer) brings them back. When I am compliant they disappear.

Hi maame,
An effective quick fix is Acid Soothe, an enzyme and herbal product by Enzymedica.  CLICK
I used to suffer so badly from acid reflux.  In all honesty, the appropriate diet for your blood type is the very best cure.  But in the meantime, the product that I mentioned works very fast.

I have not had any acid problems in many years;  it disappeared as soon as I actually started eating for my type and not eating any avoids at all.

Be sure to consider the difference between hygienic and dynamic disease.  

Hygienic disease can be cured through diet, lifestyle, stress management, sleep, exercise, etc.  Most people's problems will be dramatically improved by changes to these areas and the healing power of time.

Dynamic disease is a fundamental mistunement which persists despite/in the face of excellent hygienic living.  Ie: No matter how great your diet, lifetstyle, etc are you still have acid reflux, or acne, or arthritis, are overweight, or fatigued, can't sleep, get muscle cramps, etc.  Another example occurs when you find that in order to manage your health issue you must remain extremely strict/regimented or pay a price.  Homeopathy and other energetic modalities are at their best in treating dynamic disease because they work on multiple/deeper levels and can be used to make fundamental shifts in the vital force towards a more balanced underlying state.

Energy medicine treats patients, not specific disease and can therefore be used effectively for any disease as long as it is correctly matched to the individual.

However, to use energy medicine effectively, you much get your hygienic "house in order" so to speak, because without a solid foundation of hygienic health, dynamic changes will not take/last/mean much.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I have been on the BTD diet since September 2006 but occassionaly eat one or two avoids espcially tomato and pepper which is a basic ingredient in most Ghanaian dishes.

Im not sure where I can get a secretor test done but i will find out from hospitals if it is done in Ghana.

Thanks once again. I pray it goes into remission soon.

key word here is 'BT compliance' with whatever method or alternative cure one wants to work with! :)

Kate, Excellent post and I agree with you 100%.

The human body is by far the most complex system that we know. It is also an open system. Therefore, for good health we need to be careful to manage the inputs to the human body. For that reason I use the BTD and try to make other healthy lifestyle choices related to such things as water, air, sunlight, sleep, exercise, stress, EMF exposure, etc. to manage the open aspects of my bodies complex system.

However, once the human bodies complex system reaches some aberrant pattern or state of ill health because of inappropriate input such as trauma or toxins, then using appropriate energy medicine is in my opinion the best way and the only to way to solve serious problems. What most people don't realize is that the human body is controlled by energy fields.

Energy/physics is a more fundamental science then chemistry. In other words, chemical reactions follow the laws of physics and are dependent on the energy states of the reactants. If you attempt to work at a chemical level, then it is impossible to determine what will occur in the massively complex system of the human body. That is the risk of using chemical based medicine.

We should have all learned from the BTD that reductionist thinking is flawed. The same thinking should also be applied to any type of intervention or input applied to the human body. What I am getting at is that it is impossible to predict what the total consequences will be when some substance in unnatural amounts is input in the human body. You can't just assume that the substance is only going to react with the part of the body that you are wanting to treat.

Where as appropriate targeted energy medicine helps direct the body to do what it already is programmed to do (remember that the human body is controlled by energy fields). It may do this by correcting an aberrant energy field in an ill functioning part of the body or providing the immune system an energy signal to focus its attention on a particular pernicious agent. The benefit of this is that all the energy medicine is doing is helping the body do what it already innately knows how to do. Which is good because the human body is too complex for us to totally understand how it works.

I don't claim that all energy medicine approaches are effective for all things, but I do believe energy medicine is the future of medicine. It is unfortunate that the AMA worked to squash homeopathy about 100 years ago in the USA. If that hadn't happened I am sure that the increased amount of research that would have occurred since then would have progressed the state of the energy medicine greatly and we would be looking at a completely different medical system today.

I use and am training in a form of energy/homeopathic (not classical homeopathy) medicine to treat my state of ill health caused by toxins (mercury). I believe that it is the most effective and complete system of medicine that I have found so far.
