Dear Dr. Gott:

I have been on Prilosec for my acid indigestion. It works. Recently, my daughter

called me and told me that in India they have you eat a banana as a treatment for

GERD and that I should try it. The next day. I put a chopped up banana in my

breakfast cereal. To my surprise, it worked.

Since I have started this, I have had no indigestion and have not had to take

my Prilosec. I don't know why or how it works, but it does. Please pass this

on to your readers.


Dear Reader: Done. Like you, I have no idea why this would work but am curious

to know whether it works for others.

So, readers, if you suffer from gastro-esophageal reflux disease or frequent

heartburn and indigestion, please give this remedy a try and let me know what

your results were. It is certainly novel, not to mention tasty, but if it works,

it could also save a fair amount of money (which is important in these

ever-worsening economic times). Bananas are much cheaper and healthful

than are medications.

Thanks for sharing and I will be sure to print a follow-up in the future

when I have received plenty of responses.

To give you related information, I am sending you a copy of my Health

Report "Hiatal Hernia, Acid Reflux and Indigestion." Other readers who would

like a copy should send a self-addressed, stamped No. 10 envelope and $2 to

Newsletter, P.O. Box 167, Wickliffe, OH 44092. Be sure to mention the title.
