Hi All

With several of you having had bad news lately I thought I'd try and give some encouragement here. It's not all a one way ticket. I've recently had confirmation that my Barrett's cells have healed.I've had two clear scopes now 18 months apart, so there may be hope for some of you as well. I understand this is not the norm but shows it can happen. I'm still on 60mg lansoprazole a day, the 5cm hiatus hernia is still there and the reflux and all that goes with that but at least I know about the condition now and am trying to do everything I can to keep it at bay. I feel I've had a narrow escape for the time being anyway.

All the best to everyone.

That is good news indeed! Congratulations.

I'm sure we would all be fascinated if you have any ideas how you did it - it is not an option suggested to many.

My first insight that it might be possible was ewhen I consulted a herbal therapist. I said I had a hiatus hernia and Barett's. The response (I quote):

A fascinating answer! I'm interested - but not holding my breath!

Richard try to find a chiropractor, they can treat the hiatus hernia with a massage technique, its obviously not a cure but i think it can help, although people will say that its a lose of time and money, i didnt try this yet but i will

I would have thought a massage technique to treat hiatus hernia would be dangerous because of the rib cage?

I've never heard of a herbal treatment for Barrett's - though I've heard many claims for herbal treatments of reflux.

Suzy,

It's good news your Barrett's has healed. There is always that slim chance as, once removed from the environment that caused it in the first place, the cells may start to heal.

I guess, although you still have reflux, it is non-acidic because of your lansoprazole.

All the best

    GREAT JOB from down under .I watched them all and I'm sure nothing like that would harm you (football, 4 years)..I went to a needle guy 20 yrs ago who did things like that and I wondered about that too .But I went with the fundo so I 'm afraid to try something like that now . My wrap is tight but my HH came back (3cm)which happens .I would go to this guy and at least let him look at you . My guys price was cheap and you can always do the fundo .I saw my needle doctor take a crippled hand and have it working in 6 months with needles . THATS why I went to him . I should go to him now for a look see.I must learn how to make links , I see lots of good things but don't know how to post them..

KEEP AN OPEN MIND

FINE JOB

JEFF

If the reflux was exacerbated by weight gain (or pregnancy) pushing the stomach up through the diaphragm, I can imagine massage could conceivably reposition it - if the weight has been lost. But I can imagine drinking mercury and bouncing up and down doing the same thing.

Neither seems particularly to be encouraged.

I have no idea what the medical herbalist will suggest, but herbal cures are an area that interests me. If anyone else is interested, her www site is www.cambridgeherbalist.org.uk She is a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists http://www.nimh.org.uk/

It strikes me that if you are into medicine and want a god living you become a doctor. To become a herbalist you probably have to be someone extra special.
