A burning sensation in the chest or middle area of the upper abdomen is referred to as Heartburn.

It’s a medical condition in which the acid contents of the stomach rise above in oesophagus (food pipe), leading to burning. The main reason behind the acid rising back in the food pipe is weakness or relaxation of the ring at the junction of stomach and lower end of oesophagus. The Homeopathic mode of treatment is of great help in providing relief from Heartburn.

  3. Hello Dr Sharma,
    My son is 3.5 mth old, born 6 weeks early, has severe reflux since 8 weeks of age. He drinks 2 oz only every 3 hrs of a special dairy free formula. After feeding, he is uncomfortable, constantly swallows and licks, and has lot of saliva. We can hear fluid coming up in his mouth, but he spits up only a little bit occasionally. Has never had projectile vomiting. He does sound congested and as if something is in his throat.
    He is a poor sleeper, sleeps 30 min naps in the day and wakes up due to fluid coming up in his throat.
    He likes to be held and walked around esp. after feeds.
    He sleeps poorly on his own at night and most of the time we hold him at night n sleep.
    He passes stool infrequently once a day or every other day but usually soft.
    He was on Prevacid which I stopped 5 days ago.
    He is on Nat phos 6x with feeds and nux vomica twice a day for 4 days with some improvement.
    Should I stick with the treatment for few more days or consider changing it?
    Thanks for your advice!!

      Vaccines cause the animal protein allergy and damage the gastrointestinal system. Is this child vaccinated? Vaccines do contain proteins.

  14. Kristy Malecki says:


    I have read all of your information about GERD and reflux. I do not think my symptoms mimic what you have listed for any type of remedy. I have reflux, but it does not burn and is not acid or sour tasting. Really the only symptom I have is that I can feel the food back up in my esophagus after I eat and for many hours afterward. What is the best remedy for this?

  15. hello,

    i have had serious problems for the last 8 years, when out of the blue, but after a very stressful situation, started vomiting a whitish liquid. i had developed hashimoto disease, and it seems that hpylori is at fault. last week, i vomited again the whitish stuff, after which it became yellowish. meantime i keep on having headaches, similar to the one before i stared vomiting. i have 8 years since my problems started, and i just can not continue like this. no strength, lack of concentration, fatigue, and just plain no social life or work life because i feel incapacitated. what would be a good treatment for me, to get rid of this terrible infection. i tried a lot of other things, but nothing seems to hold for a longer period of time. thank you very much, natalia
