Reflux and wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas

Hi guys, two weeks ago I caught a bad infection. Everything went well until predictably I started with reflux. I had my usual tablets and I also use Rennie etc if necessary, however, this time I decided to try Chrystalised Ginger. I wasn't sure whether it would work on the reflux but I had a horrible taste in my mouth and I was so dry I decided to give it a go. Well it worked fine. My mouth was lovely and moist again, my sinuses where clear and best of all NO REFLUX. I am now in my third week of having the ginger pieces in my bag and I am well again. Last night we were away from home staying in a hotel and of course I had forgotten the Rennies etc. After a lovely meal and a scoop or two I felt that feeling of reflux we all know so well and I popped a piece of ginger in my mouth, goodbye reflux. Ginger does need a little getting use to as it is quite strong but boy does it work. You can buy it in any supermarket in the baking aisle. Give it a go and I am sure you will be glad especially after eating all the usual Christmas fare, not to mention the drinks. Merry Christmas Everyone. Stay well. Maximonkey
