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
