    I have been suffering from indigestion/acid reflux for some time now. I have been on 2 omeprazole for a month but it hasn't helped. I have stopped tomatoes, chocolate, fizzy drinks etc to no avail. I have tried digestian too but it didn't help either. I am waiting for an endoscopy but that might not happen for months. My own GP thinks I might have a hiatis hernia. What would you recommend I take that might help me. Thanks in advance.

      Hi Sylvia, firstly, if you feel your medication isn't working we'd recommend you discuss this with your doctor. It might be worth trying some herbal bitters such as Yarrow You should take 20-30 drops, 3 times daily 5-10 minutes before meals and for best effects I recommend taking it in only a very small splash of water (it should taste very bitter which is what we want). Then if symptoms persist, you could return to your doctor.

    What recipes are for those with acid reflux and IBS together?

      Hi Allysha, some foods trigger acid reflux in some people, but not in others. So, if you suffer from acid reflux or indigestion, it is worth keeping track of your symptoms, perhaps by keeping a diary of your symptoms alongside what you eat, to determine which foods are problematic for you. In terms of IBS, it very much depends on what your personal symptoms are, as different foods will bother you if you are constipated to if you have diarrhoea/ loose stools. If you would like to give me more details of your symptoms via the box at the top right hand corner of the web page then I may be able to help. Best Wishes, Ali

      Hi Allison we'd recommend you double check with your pharmacist here. Some digestive bitters from our range such as Centaurium may be one to consider as it is very balancing for the stomach, particularly if you find the Omeprazole isn't working for you.
