Annie- You sound like what I am looking for. I don't want all this medication - it has too many other bad effects on your body. I am using accupressure and message and cranial sacral work which seems to help me. I also do body-mind movements and take some DGL with calcium carbonate(Tums ingredients) which helps to heal the esophagus and lining of the stomach. I understand that this is used by natural healers to cure ulcers. This is more down my alley. Thanks for your help.
