Infant cured of Baby GERD with Nat Phos 6x

I am copying the case history of Grace a 1 year old little girl who presented severe GERD for which the pediatrician prescribed the PPI drug Prilosec which is considered as dangerous for adults when used in the long term.

This infant was then subjected to various other invasive tests and 2 surgeries to correct blockages in her nose which were precipitated by the action of the gastric juice which virtually burnt her mucus lining restricting her breathing.

I was able to CURE her with my default therapy Nat Phos 6x and Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose.

I would urge parents who have babies who suffer from Baby GERD to use this same therapy, preferably after consulting me on my Website.

My daughter, Grace, was diagnosed with acid reflux at 6 weeks of age and was immediately put on a low dose of Pepsid. She continued to vomit and show symptoms of reflux despite the medication. She was exclusively breast fed and continued to limit how much milk she would drink per feeding.

When she turned four months old, I was encouraged by her pediatrician to start solid foods, which I did. At first she would eat but after a couple weeks she started refusing solid food and was still limiting the quantity of breast milk she was drinking. At 6 months of age her pediatrician referred her to an ENT physician due to chronic fluid in her ears and chronic nasal congestion. The ENT changed her medication from Pepsid to Prilosec and ordered several tests including: Upper GI series, Barium Swallow Study, Gastric Emptying Study, PH probe, Sleep Study and Upper Endoscopy. All of these tests showed severe uncontrolled acid reflux. In addition, the sleep study showed moderate/severe sleep apnea due to her inflamed adenoids secondary to reflux.

Her medication was once again changed this time to Prevacid. I was told my daughter needed to have her adenoids removed. She had an adenoidectomy at 9 months of age and bilateral tubes placed due to the chronic fluid in her ears. Within two months after her surgery, she began to show symptoms of breathing difficulty while sleeping and nursing. She was then scoped at the ENT office and found to have a tumor like growth in the back of her throat where the adenoid tissue had been removed. The next day she was scheduled for an MRI to make sure the growth was not attached to her brain (which it was not) and then scheduled to have the growth surgically removed. After the growth was removed it was then biopsied and shown to be comprised of necrotic granulation tissue secondary to uncontrolled acid reflux. Her medication was then changed once again to Nexium. She continued to vomit regularly, gag, wet burp, hiccup and refuse solid food. Despite her two surgeries, four different dangerous reflux medications and an enormous amount of worry and heartache, my little girls reflux was worse than ever before. No acid reflux medication offered her relief.

I kept searching for different answers to help my daughter and came across a post on babycenter.com from a mom who said her baby’s reflux had been cured by the homeopathic Cell Salt Nat Phos 6x. One of my close friends had told me about Nat Phos and I had been giving it to my daughter for three weeks prior but had been also continuing to give her Nexium. After reading this women’s post I contacted Joe De Livera and he started my daughter on his protocol using Nat Phos 6x after each feeding and Nux Vomica 30c in the WET DOSE twice daily and to STOP the Nexium. Stopping this dangerous PPI was the key to allowing the Nat Phos and Nux Vomica to work in her body. The first day she seemed to vomit more and then the second day her reflux symptoms seemed to disappear. It has been almost two weeks now and I have never seen my daughter more reflux free. She has virtually no symptoms of vomiting, or gagging and she is eating more solid food. Our entire family has been praying feverishly for our little girl and are forever grateful to Joe for his commitment to helping our daughter and thousands of other people.

    we just found out that my one month son has acid reflux. he sleeps good when i am holding him. he will sleep for about an hour or less when i lay him down. he eats 3 ounces about every 3 hours. sometimes it is two and a half hors. he recently is now spitting up more after feedings. he is fussy most of the day. and has 2-3 very long crying periods in a day. his pediatrician put him on famotidine. he eating enfamil nutranigem formula. i have been giving colic calm but i am not sure his medicine or the colic calm are having great effect for him. he is very gassy but is able to go to the bathroom good. i have been your post about nat phos 6x and i am hoping you will be able to help me. what would you suggest. would nat phos be a good option. do you need more information regarding my son. i am trying so hard to find ways to help my son.

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.

      It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      Report prrogress in 24 hours.

      • erin says:

        thank you very much for getting back to me. should i stop giving my son the famotidine and colic calm. i appreciate your help.

        Hi joe, i have a 3 month old, 15 lbs 6 oz baby girl. her symptoms of reflux include gagging, coughing, wet burps, arching her back, occasional vomit, etc. she is exclusively breastfed and wants to nurse every moment she is awake, she doesn’t nap well so that means she nurses a lot and doesn’t have a regular schedule. she also nurses until she is able to fall asleep. if she is awoken she wants to continue nursing. at night she sleeps on top of me while i am reclined so she sleeps well. but in the daytime she won’t sleep more than 15 min at a time unless she is held or carried in a sling. how do you suggest i give nat phos 6x to her?

        • Joe says:

          I noticed that you have addressed me by my given name, Joe. I do not permit being addressed by name on my website, as I only permit my peers and close friends to do so.

          In Sri Lanka where I live there is a certain modicum of respect reserved for age. I am 85 years old.

          I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed to hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too.

          The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

          Nat Phos 6x tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. Start with half tablet but if the response is not as expected, you may increase to a full tablet but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

          You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

          You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

          It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
          Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

          You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
          Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

          If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

            Hi i apologize for the late response. i don’t easily have access to the internet. and oh i am so sorry for using your first name, yes i completely understand and you are right. my baby is doing so much better. thank you so much for your time and service. i was wondering if you would be able to suggest any remedies for baby sleep problems. my baby has trouble napping. she wakes up every 30 minutes and cries because she is still tired but is not able to fall back asleep. she also has nightmares sometimes and is at times jumpy or nervous.

            • Joe says:

              I note that you do not have easy access to the Internet and accept your apology for addressing me under my first name. I do not normally prescribe for patients who do so till they first apologise but since your baby was the patient, I did not hesitate to do so but was wondering why you did not apologise in the manner that other patients have done for following your example.

              I checked your first post and discovered that you reported that your baby at 3 months on March 29 was 15lb 6oz.

              I am not a pediatrician but it seems to me that she is overweight and from your reports she demands a feed all the time and this may be the real reason for her current distress although you have reported that she is doing much better.

              Her weight which I presume is now increased considerably is a matter of some concern to me and may warrant consulting a pediatrician to verify this matter.

              I hope that you will take my advice and consult a doctor and report the diagnosis.

    i am sorry i forgot to ask. how many tablets can he have in a day.

    ok. thank you oh so much. i will report his progress after i get Nat Phos 6x.

    • erin says:

      hi joe

      we started the first day of nat phos 6x yesterday. i gave him 1 full tablet first feeding and 1 tablet the second feeding. the rest of the feedings i gave a half tablet each feeding. he seemed a lil more calm and i was able to lay him down to sleep in the evening. he was able to get some gas out too. at night he was having his crying attacks after every feeding. they lasted about an hour each. he was fussy while sleeping when he finally calmed down. he is still in a lot of discomfort from the acid reflux. should i give him the full tablet instead of half. all of your help is greatly appreciated.

      • Joe says:

        erin

        It is obvious that you need to give him the full tablet of Nat Phos 6x and all will be well.

        • erin says:

          thank you very much. i will report back to you tomorrow.

          • erin says:

            hi joe

            i gave 1 tablet after after each of his four feedings during the day. he is still very uncomfortable and crying in the day and at night. after some feedings whenn he starts to cry he does calm down a lil faster. he sleeps when he is being held. he may sleep a half an hour to an hour when i lay him down. should i continue with the nat phos 6x. is there anything else i can do. please help me. thank you.

            • Joe says:

              erin

              You may have to add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose given twice daily, to help reinforce the effect of Nat Phos 6x.

              I note that you feed him just 4 times.
              I presume that you breast feed him.
              Suggest you give him shorter feeds 6 times daily. This may help him to digest the milk in small quantities instead of the relatively large qty 4 times daily

          • erin says:

            i am not breast feeding. he is on similac allimentum formula. he has about 8 feedings a day. i only gave him the nat phos 6x during his daytime feedings because i thought he could not have more than 4 tablets of nat phos 6x. do i give him the nux vomica 30c directly.

            i have had anxiety for the past few years. i have taken medicine for it in the past. but i choose not to anymore. would you be able to help me with my anxiety. thank you.

              erin

              You have NOT reported your baby’s response to my therapy. This is essential to enable me to monitor his progress.

              You may give him up to 6 tablets Nat Phos 6x daily if he requires this dosage. This remedy is absolutely safe in use and is being used by hundreds of babies instead of the PPI Drugs which are prescribed by the doctors.

              You will give him the Nux Vomica in the Wet dose made as instructed twice daily in a teaspoon which he will take before a feed.

              You will have to give me more data on your “anxiety” to enable me to prescribe a remedy.
              How did it start and how long ago?
              What did your doctors prescribe and what was their diagnosis?
              How old are you?
              Do you have any problems in your family which caused the anxiety?

          • erin says:

            i have seen some change in him. his crying moments are a lil easier to calm. and do not seem to last as long. he is sleeping better when i lay him down. but still sleeps better being held. he is showing sings of the acid reflux by arching his back. he is eating good and burping. he is still gassy but is passing gas more. what is the correct way to prepare the nux vomica 30c in the wet dose. can i get that at the vitamin shop.

            regarding my anxciety. i have had it for about 10 years. i was diagnosed with OCD when i was 24 and i am 33 years old. i was on zoloft. i did not like the side effects from it. i do get anxiety attacks sometimes but i am ok. with caring for my son and getting less sleep i am very anxious. and i am having a hard time sleeping and falling asleep when i can. i have no significant happenings with my family that triggered my anxiety. my odd is doing things over and over. a certain number of times. thank you.

              Erin

              Glad to note that baby is responding as expected to my therapy.
              I shall copy below the protocol to make the Wet dose which YOU will make according to the instructions which I have already given you but shall repeat again. Your pharmacy may not have ever heard of the Wet dose which is my own special therapy which has been proved to be far superior to the dry pellets.

              The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

              Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
              Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
              Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
              Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
              Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

              Please follow the following restrictions which are essential to ensure that the remedy prescribed is not antidoted:

              Do not use Coffee, Cola beverages, preserved foods like sausages, ham and bacon as they contain Saltpeter.

            • Joe says:

              Erin

              I am dealing with your own OCD/ Depression separately as it is important that you do NOT MIX your therapy with Baby’s. If you are breast feeding him I must request you to NOT take the remedy as I do not want it to be in your milk which will be passed over to baby.

              The remedy is Aurum Metallicum 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

              Follow the same instructions in my post for Baby to make the Wet dose.

              If you cannot get the Liquid Dilution of both remedies you may mail order them from

              Washington Homeopathics
              http://www.homeopathyworks.com
              1 800 336 1695

              You can use the dry pellets of Nux Vomica for Baby as his need is urgent till you get the Liquid Dilution.

    Hi,

    My son is 27 months old (weighs 26.5 pounds and 33 inches tall) has been suffering from reflux since he was 4 months old. He was full term kid and I had no complications during delivery.

    He has been throwing up ever since he is 4 months old and still throws up 1-4 times a day on most days. We did multiple tests on him (stomach emptying test, barium test, upper GI scope, ultrasounds) but the GI cannot find anything wrong with him except reflux. He has been on zantac 2.6 ml dose two times a day – and prilosec 5ml (liquid form) 2 times a day for 1.5 yrs now. The GI says he is on the max dose for both but his reflux still seems to bother him.

    I wanted to give homeopathy a try but not sure what and how much to give him. Can you please guide me with this

    Thanks,

        Sorry I am new to computers

        Joe, my son is over 2 years old (not a baby anymore and no on breast milk) – just making sure the same dose is applicable to him

        I would like to give some more info about him
        He has been this way since he was 4 months old (now is 27 months old) – he threw up a few times btw 2 months and 4 months – but it wasnt bad enough so ped didnt think we needed to put him on reflux med. It got really bad when he started solids around 4.5 months. then we stopped solids and went back to beast milk only but the throw up got better but was still there. its almost like the solids did some damage. currently he is gluten free and dairy free but nothing helps. we started him back on solids at around 10 months and 1 month later started OT and zantac and started seeing a GI.

        He eats the same food for lunch, bf and dinner – i have made sure i give him the same stuff to rule out any other problems but some days its fine – he doesn’t throw up at all – someday he throws up 2-3 times (with the same food and same quantity)

        – he has a 1/2 banana, 1 inch piece of mango, 5 blue berries and some formula with 1/4 tsp olive oil all blended together for bf

        for lunch he has one pouch of the earths best sweet potato + beet (4oz) – with 1/2 tbsp olive oil

        for dinner he has one pouch of brocolli + apple (4oz) with 1/2 tbsp olive oil

        we were told to add the olive oil to increase calories since he barely eats any solids

        apart from the solids he has around 12oz formula

        Thanks,

          It is possible that your son’s gastric problems are due to your overfeeding him.

          I would suggest that you do not force feed him and let him eat what he wants in his own time.

          You may use Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet after every meal, if you feel that he suffers from GERD.

      You can do a search for GERD on Google. You have mentioned REFLUX which is caused by GERD and the drugs you have been prescribed have not helped him but made his condition infinitely worse.

      I am shocked to learn that you have been advised to feed him a 4 oz jar of solids for both lunch and dinner at 4 months with olive oil added.

      The multiple tests with Barium you listed were the result.

      Your paediatricians seem to have had a field day with your son and prescribed Zantac and Prilosec at the ADULT dosage and you are the best judge if they have helped him. For how long has this been going on?

      I would like to have a list of his progress from the time you gave him solids to today with the drugs prescribed to enable me to help him with my therapy.

      In the meanwhile please order the following remedies:

      Nat Phos 6x Biochemic Cell Salt. 200gm tablets.
      Nux Vomica 30 Liquid Dilution.

      You will confirm that you will STOP all drugs and abide by my advice especially with regards to his food intake.

        Hi,

        My son is not 4 months old – he is 2.5 YEARS old. I have not been advised to give him solids or olive oil at 4 months. He didnt start solids untill he was 6 months old. He started 2 tbsp of olive oil at 2 yrs of age (not before). I was trying to ans your prev concern on over feeding – that he cannot be over fed coz he is 2.5 yrs old and eats a 4 oz stage 2 jar for lunch – which also he sometimes throws up. Once again my son is 2.5 year old – he not an infant or a baby

        The zantac and prilosec did help initially but it feels like they stop working after sometime – its almost like his body goes immune to them – and we keep increasing the dosage but that works for a bit and then he starts to vomit again.

        The results of all his tests come out all clean – no issues – no allergies or intolerance to any food – but i have kept him gluten free and dairy free for sometime now – coz i dont know what else to try now

          Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose given twice daily.

          You will STOP all other drugs.

          I am not happy with the current food you are giving as according to you, he throws it all up. I would prefer that you feed him home cooked food in place of the processed jars. No Olive Oil.

          Report progress in 24 hours.

            Nux vomica seems to have some serious side effects I am not sure if I want to give me 2 yr old that med – can I just try with Nat Phos 6x? That looks safer

    I want to add that we did various tests on him like barium test, stomach emptying test, upper GI scope, PH study test – all tests say there is nothing wrong with him except reflux – but I feel like the medicine is not helping anymore

    He is over 2 yrs and eats a 4 oz stage 2 puréed jar for lunch and dinner – which also he throws up most of the times

    He either gags, coughs, burps and then it’s all out

    Joe,

    I have been reading a lot on your remedy to cure GERD because my 2 month old son was diagnosed at 3 weeks with infant reflux. The Dr.s immediatley placed him on zantac and he was miserable after a week on it. He wasnt sleeping, constantly crying, and barely eating with lots of arching. I found information anout the Nat Phos 6x and went snd bought it. I started him with 1 tablet after every feeding for one day with immediate success. Bybthe second day i took him down to half a tablet and he was doing even better…and then gave him half of a half tablet on day 3. I stopped the tablet by day 4 and he seemed great. He was eating and sleeping soundly and no longer crying, arching, and you couldnt even hear the reflux any longer. But last week he started with the arching and leaving some milk in his bottle as well. Just additional information on him…he is 8 weeks old weighing about 10.5 lbs. i tried the 3 day remedy again and he showed signs of improving but once we finished the 3rd day he started the arching again. Can you please assist me? Should he be on it longer? I am located in the US and if you need any other information please let me know.

      I am glad to note that you have read the many cases of Baby GERD on my website and used the same therapy that has helped hundreds of babies to overcome their gastric distress which pediatricians treat with the dangerous PPI drugs like Nexium and others equally dangerous to adults and more dangerous to babies.

      The answer to your question is obvious.

      Give baby a FULL tablet of Nat Phos 6x immediately after his feed and he will be smiling.

      Nat Phos 6x is absolutely safe for babies and the many whom I have CURED of their problems are testimony to its effectiveness.

      • zolivo20 says:

        I guess my question is how long do i keep giving him the 1 tablet for? While he is on it he does great and then once i start to taper off it eventually comes back. I just wanted to double check ifnthere is a specific time period he should be on it before i start reducing the amount. Thank you so much for your help!

        • Joe says:

          zolivo20

          Don’t you think that it is somewhat early to ask me for how long you should give baby the Nat Phos 6x?

          After all you have only started my therapy aka “Joepathy” TODAY.

          I can reassure you that Nat Phos is not to be confused with the dangerous PPI drugs you were prescribed. NP is absolutely safe in use on a daily basis can can be used for as long as you feel that baby need it.

          Report progress often to keep me advised of his response.

  9. zolivo20 says:

    Im sorry i guess i didnt explain myself correctly in my initial post i have tried the nat phos 6x already for 3 days he did fine and it came back 3 weeks later. So i wanted to ask if it was fine to give it to him for longer than 3 days since it seems it obviously depends on the childs response. My apologies for not explaining that correctly.

    • Joe says:

      zolivo20

      If, as I understand, you stopped the Nat Phos in 3 days simply because your son was OK at that time and discovered in 3 WEEKS that he was NOT, you have obviously jumped the gun by presuming that NP can help baby during this period, as it seems to have done, to my great surprise!.

      If my surmise is correct this will prove how very effective HP is to help Baby GERD.

      All you have to do, even without my permission, is to give it to him as prescribed, again.

    Hi Dr. Livera,

    I had contacted you on the http://www.abchomeopathy.com/ website
    http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/388671
    regarding the Acid Reflux problem that I was suffering from. You had suggested the use of the following medication

    1. I have a bottle of Arnica Mont. 30c (Homeopathic dilution, 1Fl.Oz, Bruises and muscle soreness).
    I have added 3-4 drops of it in a 500ml bottle of dasani mineral water.
    I will be taking a TableSpoon full of it twice daily.

    2. I have a bottle of Hylands #10 Nat.Phos 6x ( Indigestion, Gas, Joint Pain), Formula: Natrum Phosphoricum 6X HPUS in a base of Acacia Gum , Lactose NF.
    I will be taking 4-6 tablets after lunch and dinner.

    I have been taking it for the past month, and I can see significant difference in my reflux issues 🙂
    I just wanted to know if I should add a dosage of Nux Vomica to my regimen, to enhance the recovery process?

    Also Dr. Livera, we were planning for a baby, can I continue with this medication even while I am pregnant, or should I substitute it with some other med?

    Eagerly looking forward to a response…
    Thank you so much for the help!

      I have just discovered that you are F as I presumed from your posts on the ABC that you were M.

      Suggest you postpone starting a baby till you have overcome your GERD related problems.

      I can see that your case is CHRONIC and calls for another remedy:
      Robinia Pseudocacia 6c which will hopefully reduce the flow of acid like the PPI drugs you have been using today.

      You will use it in the Wet dose taken twice daily.

      Report progress on my website.

      What is your name and where do you live?

        Hello Dr. Livera,

        I just tested positive for pregnancy.
        Request you to please suggest whether I should continue with Nat Phos and Nux Vomica, maybe lower the dosage or should I subsitute it with some other medication. coz I know acidity gets worse during this phase.

        Please recommend.
        I am currently living in Los angeles.

        Thanks for the help.

          Congratulations on the good news.

          You do not have to take Nux Vomica unless you find that Nat Phos alone is not helping your GERD. This remedy is absolutely safe to be used at all times and you may like to know that it is the ultimate remedy for Morning Sickness.

          Report progress.

          • thepride21 says:

            Thank you Dr. Livera.
            I will continue with nat Phos 4 tabs thrice a day. ( plz sugest if the dosage has to be reduced for any negative impacts?)
            Also Dr. can I take Nux vomica whenever the acidity gets worse, or should it be completely avoided?

            Thank you

              You contacted me on Sept 13 for your GERD and you were taking Nat Phos 6x but you have NOT reported if your GERD is better or worse.

              You also reported that you were keen to start a baby and I suggested that you postpone the event till your GERD, which I presume you have suffered from for some time, is cured.

              You then reported that you were pregnant and you expect me to advise you on what to do now without any background facts.

              To start with, the least I can expect is that you report on your current status in detail.

          • thepride21 says:

            Hi Dr. Livera,

            Apologies for not reporting my progress in detail and making u assume how things are on my end.

            Here are my details.
            I have been taking the Nat Phos (thrice a day-4 tabs) and arnica 30c in wet dose twice a day for the past month.
            I have seen substantial difference in the GERD related symptoms since then. There were times when I felt totally normal, but I cant say its completely gone, as some times I did feel the burning down the throat/chest sometimes back, mostly during the day time. But certainly i could see a gradual improvement on my situation before I started with this and hoped continuous medication will eventually wipe it off completely.

            Last week I discovered I was pregnant and so I am about 4.5 weeks pregnant as I write. That is when I got a bit worried about how to to continue with the med as I know acidity gets worse during this phase.
            Since the pregnancy the intensity has once again gone slightly up, and so I do not want to quit on it. Also I had read in ur other posts that Nux Vomica is a good option so to control acidity if its really bad, hence I had posted a query about whether I should try that during pregnancy or avoid it?

            To summarise, currently I am taking Nat Phos, stopped arnica as the moderator on the abcHomeo site suggested, becoz of pregnancy.
            The GERD related symptoms have reduced as opposed what they were before I started this routine (much better than what I felt while taking PPI drugs, they did not help atall)
            Please advice, what should be my regimen now to help fite the problem, as it has become a big pain in my daily life.
            Thank you for the help.

            • Joe says:

              thepride21

              Nat Phos 6x is absolutely safe in use in spite of your pregnancy. I do not know how Nux Vomica will affect your pregnancy and it is best not to use it unless everything else fails.

              You can safely add Arnica 30c in the WD taken twice daily as it will help to return your Esophagus which is normally metastasized to resemble the gut due to the Hcl back to normal. If you suffered from any burning in your throat the Arnica is definitely indicated.

  11. xel says:

    Greetings Joe,

    I am writing to inform you that I have begun your prescribed treatment of nat phos 6x for my son. He is 12 weeks old and was diagnosed with silent reflux one week ago. He has been seeing a chiropractor to assist with this issue. I breastfeed and dissolve a tablet in expressed breast milk (which he greatly dislikes taking from a syringe and lets some dribble out.

    I have researched many of your posts though, and found your remedy differs occasionally. Sometimes you say 1 tablet, sometimes you say half. Sometimes the baby receives a teaspoon of arnica, sometimes you add nux vomica. I also see that the maximum amount of tablets allowed for the baby changes.

    So far I am taking 2 tablets 3 times a day, with a capful of wet dose of arnica. I tried a half tablet with my son, and saw no discernible differences. I gave him a full tablet and I am not sure of the outcome as he is asleep. However he has been asleep for longer than usual so this may have worked.

    What is the maximum number of tablets he can have a day? He feeds many times a day to soothe his throat so 1 after every feed would be excessive. And since his throat bothers him so, is there any way I can help him heal it faster? Thank you.

    • Joe says:

      xel

      “Xel” seem strange for a name. You address me as Joe (I am 85 years old). What is your given name and where do you live?

      The reason why my therapy to help babies suffering from GERD differs from time to time is because I pioneered in using Nat Phos 6x for Adults in the late nineties. Since that time I experimented with this remedy for Babies using just half tablet and discovered that it is far more effective and safer in comparison to the PPI drugs like Prevacid Nexium and others all of which have been found to be dangerous to adults in the long term and far more to babies. In spite of this fact the paediatricians all prescribe these dangerous drugs as a matter of routine.

      I am still in the process of experimenting with Nat Phos 6x to which I have added Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose if necessary as it reinforces the action of the NP 6x. I prefer not to overdose but can confidently inform you that a Full Tablet of NP 6x is absolutely safe for babies immediately after a feed, dissolved in milk. Do not use the Nux V till I tell you to use it which I shall do if the NP alone does not help.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.

      It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.

      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread .

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

        I understand your reasoning for differing remedies now. I shall follow your remedy. I do have one issue at this time. My son eats very often to soothe his throat, every half hour when he is awake. How much time between nat phos doses is recommended and what is the maximum amount of tablets a day I can give? At this point he is sometimes eating 15 minutes after a dose and I don’t know if this interferes with your remedy. The

          Interesting name you have! No offence was taken.

          You may not exceed 6 tablets Nat P in 24 hours.

          You will give him whole tablets during the first few feeds and taper it to half tablets in the evening. Nat Phos to be given immediately after a feed.

          You may have to also use Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose if he does not respond as expected. Give 2 doses daily.

          • xel says:

            I am still observing my son at this time, trying to decide how he is doing and whether or not to purchase nux vomica. His case is a little tougher because he did not spit up (silent reflux), as he would swallow acid back down and tended to be quiet unless he was really hurting. But his eating habits and sleep habits were greatly affected and he could not be put down because of his pain. I have missed some doses this weekend for myself so I want to make sure I evaluate with correct remedy before I decide.

            So far it does seem it is helping as I’ve heard far less swallowing and wet burps and he is going a lot further between feedings and is in general even more mellow. However his sleep is still off, though better. I am also considering whether or not dairy may be bothering him as well.

            So I am continuing to evaluate at this time. Thank you, I will report back for the sake of other mothers’ as well in a day or two.

            • Joe says:

              xel

              You do not have to give him the Nux V unless you find that the NP alone is not helping him.

              You mentioned dairy. Why dont you breast feed him?

          • xel says:

            I do breastfeed him, I meant that I am not completely sure if the dairy that I eat irritates him or not.

            It has been 3 days since I began giving him the doses. I have seen great improvement, though not a full cure. He is taking longer naps, going longer between feeds and is generally less fussy. Except that he has now become fussy at night for an hour or two, though I am not sure if that is due to a growth spurt or something else.

            A full cure may be impossible I am thinking depending on why he has the reflux. I may add the nux vomica only after I try cutting out dairy from my diet. Either way, I am pleased with the results so far as this remedy has nearly got his reflux under control.

            • Joe says:

              xel

              I do not think that the dairy you take will upset his digestive system. I believe that he lacks some essential chemical to fully digest his milk and the remedies I have prescribed will help to fill in the gap till his body takes over in a few weeks.

              Please be reassured that a FULL CURE IS POSSIBLE and will occur shortly.

              You can consider adding a Probiotic to introduce some good bacteria into his gut with advice from your pediatrician.

          • xel says:

            I actually began a probiotic about the same time as the remedy. I am still seeing slow improvement and am giving him the dose as needed.

            If you believe a full cure is possible, then I will too as I cannot deny I’ve seen his symptoms slowly recede over the past week. Perhaps it will just take his body a little more time to heal. Do you think I should add in the nux vomica then? I am very grateful for your assistance.

            • Joe says:

              xel

              You can give him the Nux Vomica which I feel is indicated at this stage as he should have normally responded in a week to the N Phos. His may be a stubborn case and if you had given him the PPI Drugs they usually make a bad situation infinitely worse and I have found that Nux V helps to cure the patient.

              The Probiotic should also help.

        • xel says:

          Hello again Joe. I finally received my nux vomica 30c in the liquid dose. I have researched but I’m not sure how to give this remedy. Do I make a wet dose and give 1 tsp directly to the baby before a feed?

          • Joe says:

            xel

            The Nux V took its own time to reach you and I wonder if it is needed now as you have observed “I have seen great improvement”

            Do let me know if you still feel that you must give it to him.

          • xel says:

            I hesitated to order it because of the improvement but decided to order it last week because I see need again. I did see great improvement as a whole, (he went from refluxing all the time and never napping to napping every hour or two) but he is still refluxing badly at times, especially at night. It’s my understanding that I take the arnica but the nux vomica goes to the baby?

            • Joe says:

              xel

              On the basis of your current report I believe that it is now time to give him Nux V 30c in the Wet dose twice daily for baby.

              You can give him half teaspoonful in between feeds but you will maintain the Nat Phos dose as usual.

    I wrote this post on abc homeopathy but someone directed me to your site to ask so here is my post from there. I just wanted your advice because you seem to have helped lots of babies and their concerned mommies. Thanks!
    Hi There-
    My 2 month old was just dignosed with reflux and was prescribed a compound liquid form of Prevacid. We have been giving it to him for a little over a week and he seems to nursing better and his weight is going up. My husband and I just really don’t want to give him medicine this early on if there is something we could do to take a nature approach. As I researched I came across this website and other responses Joe has replied to. I just wanted to make sure I knew exactly what to do before doing anything.
    So am I correct that I will give him 1/2 tablet of Hyland’s Natrum Phos 6x dissolved in expressed breastmilk after each feeding? (How much milk do I mix the tablet with?)
    As for me (since he is exclusively breast fed) I need to dissolve and drink 2 tablets of natrum phos 6x three times a day after meals and also Arnica 30c twice a day? I’m having trouble finding arnica in liquid dose I’m only seeing dissolvable tablets. Will those work? Can those be taken together in morning and night? How much Arnica? How long do you continue this remedy? Most people said their child was better in about 4 days. Do I stop then with the baby and continue myself or both stop?
    Also someone at the health food store recommended giving bifidobacterium powder in expressed milk to help with reflux because it’s a probiotic. What are your thoughts on this?
    Thank for in advance for answering my questions and guiding me to a natural approach.

    • Joe says:

      Blessed Family

      You have read and understood my therapy aka “Joepathy” precisely and you can consider yourself fortunate that you decided to contact me for your Baby’s GERD. All PPI drugs including Prevacid are known to medicine as being dangerous in use in the long term and you can type “Danger of PPI drugs” into Google to read all about it.

      I do not now prescribe half tablet of Nat Phos 6x as a full tablet is more effective and is also absolutely safe. It does not matter how much breast milk you use as all that is needed is to dissolve it to give it to baby. Even a teaspoonful of water will do.

      The idea behind your taking Nat Phos 6x is to pass the effect to baby through your B milk. You can mail order the Arnica 30 in the Liquid Dilution from

      Washington Homeopathics
      http://www.homeopathyworks.com
      1 800 336 1695

      You may use 6 pellets in a bottle of water till you get the L Dilution.

      Baby should respond to the NP almost instantly but you will continue to give him a dose for a few days after every feed and taper it off when you see that he is free of GERD.

      I have not recommended the Probiotic for an infant but cannot see any disadvantage in your doing so. I would prefer that you start with my therapy and give the Probiotic when you see how he has responded.

      Report progress in 48 hours.

    Hi Joe and thank you. I am suffering from diabetes, reflux, PVC’s, IBS, Fibromyalgia, Depression/Anxiety, High Blood Pressure and I am obese. I have absolutely no energy, no drive and do not sleep well because of the pain I am in from fibro. Right now I am experiencing the sensation of having a lump in my throat and some heartburn and would really love to get off of Prevacid of which I have been on for 14yrs (at least), or more. I’d love to get off of all of my meds which I will list for you, and start to feel better.
    Medications:
    Prevacid, Verapamil (for PVC’s and bl pressure), Hydrochlorot, Metformin and I take Alprazalam and liquid Carafate as needed along with an albuterol inhaler for my asthma (which is not bad and rarely need inhaler). I also use Cyclobenzaprine at times to help relax my muscles from the fibro pain. I am tired of feeling awful and struggling with my weight, not being able to sleep well and so on. I do not smoke or drink alcohol. My exercise and daily activities are very limited due to the chronic pain I have.
    If there is anything you can help me with, I would truly appreciate it. I don’t mind trying any natural supplements as long as they do not stimulate me like caffeine and get my PVC’s (Premature Ventricular Contractions) going out of control.

      Monica64

      How old are you and are you married with children?

      As you are aware your case is extremely complicated and I do not know where to begin.

      I shall start by prescribing for your GERD and the same remedy will help your Obesity.

      It is very likely that you suffer from Hyperacidity or Gastritis, aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease) and I shall copy my default therapy that has helped hundreds of patients to overcome this disease for which doctors usually prescribe PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) drugs which are dangerous and can cause many other more serious problem when used in the long term.

      You will hopefully discover that my therapy aka “Joepathy” will help you within the hour after you have taken your first dose after a meal.

      The remedies you will order are as follows:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 3-4 tablets taken immediately after each of 2 meals.
      This remedy accelerates the passage of food down the gut and prevents the formation of acid which would otherwise reflux causing GERD.

      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.
      This remedy works to repair the damaged Esophagus which has metastasised to resemble the gut to deal with the Hcl refluxed into it causing severe distress. Arnica works with the Nat Phos to speedily cure the problem.

      Please observe the following simple rules:

      Do not eat large meals. Eat small meals but more often if you feel hungry. Do not drink more that a few sips of water after your meals. This is to prevent the further dilution of your gastric juice which can then reflux into your Esophagus which results in GERD.

      It is important that you do not go to bed for at least 2 hours after dinner as food will take about this time to digest and it is best to stay awake and upright to enable your food to digest before going to bed.

      No fatty food, alcohol, coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham, bacon as they contain Saltpeter which will antidote the remedies listed immediately.

      If you suffer from a stomach ache or you feel your stomach puffing up before a meal during the day between meals, this is usually due to hunger pains, caused by your gastric juices attacking the inner lining and the wall of your stomach. The simple remedy is to eat some food like a biscuit or a banana between meals to keep the gastric juice away from digesting the stomach wall which results in a stomach ache which in some cases can be acute.

      You must drink at least 3 liters of liquids, preferably water daily and you must also exercise for at least half hour daily. It is important to sweat it out as this is all part of my therapy to overcome GERD.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Liquid Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.

      It is understood that the patient will stop all other drugs which s/he may be taking for this ailment.

        Joe, I am 49 yrs old and my son is grown and married. I will stop the Prevacid and Liquid Carafate as soon as I get the prescribed supplements you spoke of. When you speak of preserved foods, does that mean lunchmeats as well? Also, if I am having a bad fibromyalgia day and am in severe pain, is alright for me to skip exercise? I cannot do any heavy or hard exercise at this time because of the crippling effects of the fibro but I can try and walk for a half hour. Would that be suitable and is it alright if I have to break it up in smaller increments as long as I get the total half hour of exercise in? Also, I just started a probiotic. Would you suggest I continue that or stop it?
        Thank you so much, I know I have a lot of health issues to deal with.

    Joe,

    My son is 3 weeks old and was recently diagnosed with GERD. His symptoms aren’t very severe as of yet but I am noticing they are getting worse each day. He spits up a small amount sometimes after eating, he has wet burps and winces as he swallows back the contents that came up, he gets congested as a result of the acid burning his nasal cavity and causing them to become inflamed. His throat sounds dry and he also makes a sound like he is trying to clear his throat. I ordered Hyland’s NatPhos 6x but am not sure if he is too little for this remedy to be effective or if his symptoms are not severe enough. I noticed that all of your prior infant GERD patients were 6 weeks or older, had trouble nursing, and screamed in pain. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you for your time

    • Joe says:

      I am amazed at how early in life babies present GERD. Your baby is the first I have encountered at just 3 weeks and you are very fortunate that you requested my advice which I hope will be used by all physicians who wish to treat Baby GERD as I feel that my discovery is the Ultimate remedy for this condition and is also absolutely safe in use.

      I note that you have already ordered Hyland’s Nat Phos 6x and you can also add Arnica 30c and Nux Vomica 30c, both in the Liquid Dilution which we can use if the NPhos alone does not help him in a couple of days.

      I would like to know how you located me on the Web.

      For the record, I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD below:

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.

      It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      You will also take Arnica 30c which you will order in the Liquid Dilution as per instructions below. Please note that the Arnica is NOT for baby.
      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread .

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

      • nicoleq08 says:

        I found your website through research online about GERD. I started my son on the NPos 6x 2 days ago following the remedy instructions you have posted numerous times for other patients. I gave him 1 tablet dissolved in 5ML milk after each feed for 5 feeds, I am breastfeeding only. It was difficult to tell whether or not the pills were working because as I stated before he does not spit up a lot after feedings. He seemed his usual self as far as eating and sleeping habits. He still woke up with bad congestion at night, which is a result of acid coming up in his nasal cavity. The next 24 hours (yesterday) I again gave him 1 tablet after each feed for his 12, 3, 6, and 9 eating. He was extremely fussy after 9, crying and screaming, gagging and I could hear his nasal congestion which was unusual since he has only been congested late at night. I again gave him another full tablet and did not see any improvement in his behavior. He finally fell asleep two hours later after I nursed him and did not give him NatPhos. He awoke numerous times last night with bad dry mouth and congestion which I believe is making it hard for him to stay asleep. This morning I gave him 1 tablet after his morning feed and although he is sleeping, he keeps waking up congested and with a dry mouth. I looked at the website that you recommend for purchasing Nux Vomica 30c but cannot find the exact remedy “Nux Vomica” they have Nux Moschata and Nux Moschata High Potency. The same is true for Arnica 30c, the website only has Arnica Montana and Arnica Montana – Radix.

        • Joe says:

          nicoleq08

          It is very early to program the future strategy for your baby as you have only used Nat Phos 6x for 3 days. You reported that he does seem to reflux in his sleep and this indicates that Nux Vomica 30c in indicated and you will get it in the Liquid Dilution.
          You cannot mistake Nux Vomica for the other Nux varieties.
          You will not give him Arnica. This is only for you. And not the A Radix.

          • nicoleq08 says:

            Joe,
            What alcohol percentage should I buy for the Nux Vomica 30c and also what are the directions for giving it to my son (how often each day, how soon before or after meals, etc). Thank you for your advice

            • Joe says:

              nicoleq08

              I note that you have not reported how baby has responded to my therapy since you last reported on September 20 when you had used Nat Phos for just 3 days.

              As the mother I would expect you to have the courtesy of reporting how your baby responded during this past fortnight as I too as the consultant, am interested to know whether baby has responded positively or otherwise.

              I also note that you have not got the Nux Vomica 30c and cannot understand the reason why you have not done so as I had prescribed it on 9/21.

              I can only presume that you are not really interested in my therapy and would suggest that you go back to your pediatrician to treat your baby.

          • nicoleq08 says:

            Joe I apologize for not having reported my son’s response. I had stopped giving him the NP due to personal issues. Please be assured that I believe and trust in your Joepathy for GERD and now want to move forward with adding NuxVomica to my son’s treatment. I want to help relieve my son from his pain, especially if it can be done without using harmful PPI medications. I will order the NV30c and wait for your administering instructions.

            • Joe says:

              nicoleq08

              Please clarify:
              “I had stopped giving him the NP due to personal issues.”

              You cannot give baby Nux Vomica 30 alone as it is designed to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x which works by accelerating the digestive process while the Nux helps the milk to go down.

              I can only prescribe the remedy for your baby and it is up to the patient to use it or do otherwise.

          • nicoleq08 says:

            There were some personal family problems that came up. I appreciate your understanding. I have the NatPhos 6x tablets and will order the NuxVomica to help reinforce it if you deem it necessary. I think I will need the NV as you stated prior due to my son refluxing in the night and causing his congestion and gagging. I do greatly appreciate you taking your personal time to help me with this treatment

  16. Monica64 says:

    Thank you Joe. I apologize as I did not mean to ask where to get the “wet form”. I wanted to be sure and ask the following in case you did not see my earlier post because I posted back to back.

    When you speak of preserved foods, does that mean lunchmeats as well? Also, if I am having a bad fibromyalgia day and am in severe pain, is alright for me to skip exercise? I cannot do any heavy or hard exercise at this time because of the crippling effects of the fibro but I can try and walk for a half hour. Would that be suitable and is it alright if I have to break it up in smaller increments as long as I get the total half hour of exercise in? Also, I just started a probiotic.

      ALL preserved meats use Saltpeter as the preservative and this chemical ANTIDOTES the Homeopathic remedy instantly.

      You should not overtax your body to conform to my advice in exercise. You must understand that exercise is essential to repair the damage to your body caused by your Fibromyalgia for which there is no known drug to cure this condition as medicine is still guessing at the reason.

      I am interested in your case as my therapy aka “Joepathy” has worked miracles in helping 2 conditions which were never successfully treated by Homeopathy:
      DIABETES
      OBESITY
      I have used standard remedies to treat both conditions and as long as you are willing to use my therapy which I shall prescribe on an experimental basis, there is a faint change that we can overcome your condition too.

      I would like to have a detailed record of how you first noticed Fibro and how your doctors treated it.

      A Probiotic is OK

      • Monica64 says:

        I understand, no processed meats. I will definitely do my best to exercise, even if it’s in small intervals. Some days it’s all I can do to get out of bed with help from my husband. I will follow your advice wholeheartedly Joe.

        I first noticed fibro two yrs ago when I started having more and more pain in my neck, shoulders and back. I started waking up in terrible pain and could barely turn over. At least once a month my husband would have to help me because I could not get out of bed on my own. I started talking to a friend who had it and then researched it. At that same time, I started having much more anxiety and had to go on Alprazolam daily, for a year, until it eased up. During that first year I started feeling way more fatigued, I started noticing my muscles were becoming weak and it was a chore to go up stairs whether it be two or twenty. During this time, when all of this was first starting to take place, I was under a lot of stress and emotional turmoil. I feel the stress and emotional things I was going through added to the onset, but I could be wrong. My Dr at the time was the first to say she felt I had fibro but wanted to keep an eye on me. So she monitored my progress and health issues during that first yr. Then I basically just fell apart as things progressed and my Dr quit taking insurance so I had to leave her. I didn’t go to any Dr’s for the better part of a year and then I went to my new Dr this past January. I told her in detail of all of my symptoms : chronic pain, muscle stiffness, body aches, weakness, fatigue, brain fog, vision problems, insomnia, sciatica, IBS, anxiety and severe depression. She acknowledged the depression, IBS, and anxiety and treated them with depression meds, alprazolam and nothing for the IBS other than Imodium when it got bad. She would not and still does not acknowledge that fibro is a real disease and wants to blame all the other issues on sleep apnea. I don’t believe I have sleep apnea because my body can go for hours and hours without sleep and often does from the insomnia. At this time, the Dr I want to see, who specializes in fibro, does not take insurance and I am trying to save up the money to see him. He is expensive so it’s not something I can rush right out and do.
        So, I deal with my pain, use hot baths, get in the swimming pool when I can, use Sombra (topical cream) that can help the pain, and when I can’t stand it any longer, I take a cyclobenzaprine and either acetaminophen or ibuprofen. ( never more than a few times a month so as not to upset my stomach). I do put Epsom salts and food grade hydrogen peroxide (35% mixed with distilled water) in my hot baths and it does help ease the pain and stiffness for a while. I use 1oz of the peroxide to 11oz of distilled and double the batch for one bath. My husband gives me massages which also helps ease the pain but it’s only temporary. I went from working and enjoying life to being laid up in my home, depending on my husband for most things and on a good day, I can stand to be up on my feet for a few minutes, maybe make something to eat, and wash up. Each and every thing I do is a major chore and wipes me out. If I do too much I will be laid up in pain with severe fatigue for anywhere from a day to a week. My son visited in June and just sitting and playing games with them for a few hrs a day and moving around a bit more, had me laid up for 4 solid days. I was in terrible pain and would sleep for four hours and be up for one, sleep for four, up for one and so on.

        I hope this helps you Joe. I’d be happy to speak with you if you would like more information, or share it here. Whatever works best for you. I am just thrilled someone is listening to me and willing to start somewhere in trying to help me. My life at this point, is not a life at all.
        Thank you, Monica

          Yours is another very complicated case and I am currently treating another patient who is equally complicated Heda Winter whose problems are roughly similar to yours. She too has also been informed by her doctor that her insurance will not pay for her consultation and perhaps drugs and I do wonder what is happening in your country even after the Obama Healthcare Bill. You do pay for Health Insurance and the least that can be expected is that this Insurance pays for your treatment.

          You suffer from
          FIBROMYALGIA
          GERD
          HYPERTENSION
          DIABETES
          ASTHMA
          OBESITY

          All I can do is to try to help you and hope that my therapy will serve to reduce your suffering. You will please keep me informed of your progress often as I get an email alert the moment you post on my Website.

          I have already prescribed for your GERD and you will report your response. You will please indicate which other problem you would like me to prescribe next depending on urgency.

          List all the drugs you are taking currently.

          • Monica64 says:

            Joe, I will definitely keep you posted often as to my progress and how I am feeling. I do have a question. The Nat Phos will be here later today. Would you like me to stop the Prevacid and start the Nat Phos even though I won’t have the Arnica until next week? I am more than happy to do whatever you suggest.

            I would say since my obesity will hopefully start to change with your help for the Gerd, that my next concern to work on would be my Diabetes. It is my biggest concern aside from my stomach issues and obesity. So please do let me know when you feel it is time, any suggestions you may have to help with the Diabetes. I have to be careful of medications/supplement that can cause stomach issues of course and gas/bloating or diarrhea. The IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) can become much worse.

            I currently take:
            Prevacid (today is the last day)
            Liquid Carafate as needed for stomach
            Hydrochlorot (for bl pressure and water retention)
            Verapamil ER for PVC’s and blood pressure
            Metformin ER for Diabetes
            Alprazolam (as needed for anxiety)
            Albuterol Inhaler (as needed for asthma) which is rare
            Align Probiotic
            Gaviscon or Rolaids for upset stomach
            Cyclobenzaprine (a few times a month for fibro)
            Acetominiphen or Ibuprofen for pain (no more than 8 times a month)

            I hope this helps! I know it’s a lot.

              I shall be very interested to have your report of your response to the Nat Phos 6x and you can take 4 tablets after every meal to observe how it will help you to overcome your GERD. I do not know if you have also ordered Nux Vomica 30 which will be needed if the Nat Phos alone is not sufficient to replace the Prevacid you have been taking up to today.

              You will of course STOP all the drugs you are taking for your GERD when you start on my therapy.

              Since you want me to prescribe for your Diabetes I shall copy below my default therapy aka “Joepathy” which many Diabetics are using today to control their BS levels.

              The remedy I have prescribed is Arnica 6x in the Wet dose which is taken twice daily.

              Mag Phos 6x dose 2 tablets taken thrice daily have also helped to reduce BS levels and you can add this to your daily dosage.

              Please note that you will most likely notice a dip in your BS level within 24 hours of starting my therapy and you will then have to reduce your dosage of either Metformin or of Insulin as it must be maintained around 110.

              Type I patients have confirmed that they discovered their BS levels were reduced by about 20% within a day of their starting on this therapy.

              Type II patients will also have to monitor their BS levels on a daily basis to ensure that their BS is stabilized at around 110 and they will reduce the dosage of the drugs that they are using daily to maintain this level. The Arnica 6c and the Mag Phos 6x are taken as prescribed.

              The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

              Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
              Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
              Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
              Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
              Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

              Cinnamon powder is also useful to reduce BS levels and a quarter teaspoonful can be taken brewed as a tea twice daily. Okra or Bandakka which grows in the tropics also helps to reduce BS levels. Okra is used by cutting up a tender pod and inserting it into a glass of water which is left overnight and the water is drunk on an empty stomach the morning after.
              Turmeric has also been discovered to help reduce BS levels and can be used in a similar manner to the Cinnamon.

              Do not use Coffee, Cola beverages, preserved foods like sausages, ham and bacon as they contain Saltpeter.

              You will not take any drugs when you start my therapy.

  17. Monica64 says:

    Hi Joe,
    Thank you again for all of your advice. I am ordering the necessary supplements now. Just so you know I did not have diabetes until I was in my 40’s. I had not ordered the Nux Vomica 30 yet as I was no aware. I am ordering it now with the others you suggested. I found this on Amazon which offers much quicker, cheaper shipping and I just want to be sure this is the correct one you speak of for the Arnica 6x: Arnica 6X 1.7 oz Homeopathic Medicine Liquid (OTC) Active Ingredients: Arnica montana (N) 6X. Inactive Ingredients: Alcohol 18% v/v.
    I ordered the Arnica 30c yesterday from the website you suggested but it won’t be here until next Wednesday.
    Just to be clear, I can stop the Prevacid and chewable Rolaids or Gaviscon once I have the Nat Phos 6 and the Nux Vomica30? I do not need to wait for the Arnica30c to start?
    I want to be sure I have everything straight so, for the Gerd I will be taking as follows:
    Nat Phos 6x 3-4 tabs after each of 2 meals.
    Arnica 30c wet dose taken 2 times daily (any specific time of day?)
    and Nux Vomica 30 if needed (any time of day?)

    For the Diabetes I would take:
    Arnica 6x in the wet dose 2 times a day
    Mag Phos 6x 2 tabs 3 times a day
    Check BS and reduce Metformin as needed.
    Are there specific times a day to take each?

    Also, I will then be taking both Arnica 6x and Arnica 30c in the wet dose each day?

    I understand about the cinnamon and I have tried that. After several days of eating in oatmeal and mixed in my tea, it really hurt my stomach. Spices and spicy things can really set my stomach off. I think for now, I should not try the cinnamon or turmeric. But thank you for the suggestions.

    I will wait to hear back from you to be sure I am very clear and understanding everything I am to take and that the Arnica 6x I have found on Amazon is alright.
    Thank you!

    • Joe says:

      Monica64

      The lower potency of any Homeopathic remedy will prevail over the higher. The Arn 30 is best for your GERD and can also help with your Diabetes and you may therefore not order the Arnica 6x.

      I am copying below your statements with my comments in upper case.

      I want to be sure I have everything straight so, for the Gerd I will be taking as follows:
      Nat Phos 6x 3-4 tabs after each of 2 meals.
      MAKE IT EACH OF 3 MEALS
      Arnica 30c wet dose taken 2 times daily (any specific time of day?)
      INCREASE DOSAGE TO 3 TIMES DAILY
      and Nux Vomica 30 if needed (any time of day?)
      HOLD THE NV 30 TILL WE OBSERVE HOW THE NAT PHOS AND ARNICA HELP YOUR GERD.

      For the Diabetes I would take:
      Arnica 6x in the wet dose 2 times a day
      OMIT ARN 6X
      Mag Phos 6x 2 tabs 3 times a day
      OK
      Check BS and reduce Metformin as needed.
      OK
      Are there specific times a day to take each?
      LEAVE HALF HOUR BETWEEN REMEDIES EXCEPT THE NAT PHOS WHICH CAN BE USED ANYTIME.

      Also, I will then be taking both Arnica 6x and Arnica 30c in the wet dose each day?
      SEE ABOVE

      I understand about the cinnamon and I have tried that.
      CINNAMON IN THE DOSAGE INDICATED CANNOT HURT YOU. IT IS LIKELY THAT YOU WERE TAKING AN OVERDOSE.
      After several days of eating in oatmeal and mixed in my tea, it really hurt my stomach. Spices and spicy things can really set my stomach off. I think for now, I should not try the cinnamon or turmeric. But thank you for the suggestions.

      YOU WILL STOP ALL DRUGS YOU ARE CURRENTLY TAKING FOR YOUR GERD.

      • Monica64 says:

        Joe,
        Thank you for your response and being very clear on the supplements. I understand I am to take them as follows:
        Nat Phos6x 3-4 tabs after each of 3 meals.
        Arn 30c wet dose – 3 times daily
        Hold NV till we see how others do.
        Omit Arn 6x
        Mag Phos 6x – 2 tabs 3 times daily
        Check BS and reduce Metformin as needed
        Leave half hour between remedies except Nat Phos which can
        be used anytime.
        Try 1/4 teaspoon of Cinn. powder brewed as a tea twice daily
        as well as soaking tender pod of Okra in water overnight and drinking in the morning on empty stomach.
        Absolutely no drugs for Gerd to be taken once I start this protocol.
        No Prevacid, Carafate, Rolaids, Gaviscon etc.
        I believe I am clear on this and again, thank you for helping me.

        Just to be sure I am understanding 100% on the no preserved meats, does that mean I also cannot have frozen breaded fish sticks or frozen breaded chicken breast patties? Or would those be considered safe? I often find with my pain and fatigue that these easy, quick foods are what I can handle making.

        Thank you again Joe for all of your help. Once I have all the remedies here, sometime later next week, I will start them and keep you updated regularly.

      Preserved meats and perhaps also preserved fish may have SALTPETER as the preservative.

      Saltpeter antidotes all Homeopathic remedies instantly.

      Take it from there.

    Hi,

    I’m reporting back in on my 2 month olds progress with GERD. We started your remedy a week ago on Tuesday cutting out the medication the doctor prescribed. I am sorry I didn’t report sooner as you asked but my grandmother passed away so I was busy out of town dealing with our lose but contined using your remedy all the while. So for the last week I’ve given him 1/2 tablet of Nat Phos after every feeding and he usually nurses 9-10 times a day so he ends up getting 4.5 to 5 tablets a day. Since being on this he still seems squirmy at the breast while nursing at times and still spits up lots after each feeding. He is sleeping longer at night which has been nice for this tired momma but during the day he only goes about 2.5-3 hours from start to start of feedings and at evenings he wants to cluster feed every 1.5-2 hours till about his 10pm feeding then he starts sleeping well. I am burping him well after each feeding and since he was spitting so much up I’ve started waiting about 10-15 minutes after each feeding before giving him Nat Phos in hopes he wouldn’t just spit it up but even then as soon as I give it to him he spits up right away. I am keeping him elevated after each feeding as well. A plus is that I weighed him and after week on this method with all the spitting up he still gained a strong amount of weight an ounce a day (which he was a slow weight gainer at first so we monitor that closely but he’s been going great).
    I’m sorry again it has taken me awhile to report in to state our progress and ask you for any suggestions. What should I do now not seeing a change in his GERD? Should I give him a whole tablet just during 5 of the day feedings and not worry about after every feeding like the night and early early morning feedings? Would you suggest anything else or just keep this up? He is such a happy spitter so can make it harder to recognize his discomfort. I have been very faithful in giving him his dose after every feeding but I’ve not been so good myself. Due to the lack of sleep and being emotionally drained when taking those 3 times a day (2 tablets) he acted like my milk tasted different and I had to continue to relatch him. I didn’t know if Nat Phos could make milk taste different or cause you to dry up a little in your production. I nursed my older child till they were 1 and plan to do the same. He is doing better about not coming off breast during feedings due to discomfort (so I guess he could have been sensing how emotional this time was for me) but that’s with me taking nothing. Sorry I know that’s lots of inform but I would rather tell you too much then not enough information so I could get your best advice to where to go from here. Thank you so much for your help and advice.

    My son is 4 months old and 14.2 lbs. To give a little history on him he was born 8 days early with a vacuum assisted delivery at 7.1 lbs. From day 3 on he has had feeding/tummy troubles. He would scream immediately after breastfeeding like he was in pain. He cried all the time even when not eating. We could never lay him down he had to sleep in our arms and he spit up a lot.. He was ultimately diagnosed with a cows milk protein allergy/ sensitivity and colic. I switched to soy formula while going on a strict no dairy diet for 3 weeks and ultimately pumping didn’t keep my supply up and I stopped lactating. He began to not do well on soy so got put on a hypoallergenic formula. He did well on this for a week or 2 then began projectile vomiting and pain. He was diagnosed with reflux and put on Zantac at 2 months. He did well on this for 1 month then Reflux came back very bad. We began thickening his formula with rice cereal and he did well for 3 weeks now isn’t doing well again. He is constantly irritable and fussy, only naps 2-2.5 hours total a day broken into little cat naps, is now waking up every 45 mins- 2 hours at night whereas he used to only wake up 2x, arches his back in pain or draws knees up to chest, sounds gurgly and congested all the time although lung sounds are clear, is hysterical when in infant car seat in car, has to be swaddled to calm him down, sometimes refuses bottle, grunts a lot and gets hiccups a lot. His spit up is minimal but I believe he’s having silent reflux and is in pain so he’s fussy and won’t sleep. I need help!!!! He has happy moments but they are far and few between lately. I’ve tried hylands colic tabs, gas drops, and Tylenol. Also I might add we have to bounce around to get him to sleep with white noise playing, rocking no longer works. Is nat phos 6x also what I need to do after each feeding? Will nat phos 6c work?

    • Joe says:

      lauren35

      You will give baby a tablet of Nat Phos 6x (NOT 6c) after every feed dissolved in milk and you should hopefully discover that his problem with his digestion will settle down.

      You will STOP all other drugs and you will report his response in 24 hours or earlier if he settles down.

      You will also get Nux Vomica 30c in the liquid Alcohol pack but you will not use it till I instruct you to do so later if baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone.

      Where do you live and how did you discover my Website?

    Hi Joe,

    After reading many of the threads above I have started giving my daughter your default dose for reflux, in the hope that it can be cured. To give you a bit of my daughters’s history, she was diagnosed as having mild reflux at about 10 weeks old (she is now almost 14 weeks). Her symptoms included frequent spilling (not just immediately after a feed, but all the time), wheezing/congested breathing, discomfort lying on her back or in any reclined position, rejecting the breast when feeding (she is exclusively breast fed) and crying as if in pain while feeding, arching her back, and constant unsettledness and irritability. Her sleep is also affected sometimes, and her weight gain was decreased due to her refusing to feed and constant spilling. She was prescribed to take infant Gaviscon after feeding three times a day, which helps the reflux and this improved her weight gain, but it makes her constipated. This appears to be causing her increasing discomfit after several weeks of taking the Gaviscon, so I don’t feel it is a good ongoing solution for us.

    For the last 5 days I have been giving her a whole tablet of Nat Phos 6x dissolved in a teaspoon of water after each feed (up to 5 doses a day maximum). And I have been taking 2 tablets of the Nat Phos 6x after meals three times a day, and the wet dose of Arnica 30c twice a day. We stopped giving her the Gaviscon when we started the Nat Phos treatment, and it has taken a few days to work its way out of her system, but she is now not suffering from any constipation after about 4 days. However, today a lot of her reflux symptoms have started to come back. She has been spilling more again for a couple of days (without any noticable discomfort when she spills), but today she has started refusing the breast again, and been much more irritable. Because of this I am tempted to give her some Gaviscon again to ease her discomfort, but before I do so I thought I should ask you for your advice on how we can proceed? I have seen in some cases you have advised to add a wet dose of Nux Vomica to the treatment if the Nat Phos is not helping alone. Is this something we should try now, or should we wait a couple more days to see if there is any improvement from the Nat Phos?

    I look forward to your response, and very much appreciate your time.

    Kind regards,
    Erica

      Erica

      I saw your post coming in and hasten to respond.

      It is indeed very satisfying for me to note that the data I have posted on my Website has been read by you and that you have used the therapy I have formulated even without waiting for me to advice you.

      Since you have discovered that Nat Phos 6x alone is not sufficient to help baby you will now add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose given twice daily and should hopefully discover that her GERD will be stabilised.

      Please post her response in a few days.

      • Erica says:

        Hi Joe,

        I added the wet dose of Nux Vomica 30c to my daughter’s treatment almost a full three days ago now, and her reflux does seem to be improved, if not almost gone. She is still spilling a bit at times, but it doesn’t appear to bother her and it is much less than when her reflux was at its worst. This little bit of spilling, and the odd bout of hiccups, are the only sign of any reflux that she has left. She is very settled and happy again, sleeping well and feeding well too. It’s so wonderful to see her feeling better – thanks to your treatment!

        What I am unsure of now is how long we need to keep treating her for? Do I need to wait until she stops spilling before we reduce the dose? Or can we reduce it now that we have seen some improvement? Also, do we continue to use the Nux Vomica wet dose when we start to reduce the Nat Phos? And do I continue to take the same dose of Nat Phos and Arnica wet dose until we have finished treating her or do I reduce those treatments too?

        Sorry to ask so many questions, I do really appreciate your time – it has made such a difference for us and our baby.

        Kind regards,
        Erica

          Hi Joe,

          I’m not sure if you have read my previous reply to report our progress since we added the wet dose of Nux Vomica 30c to my daughter’s treatment?

          As She us so much better since we added the Nux Vomica 4 days ago, I started to reduce the Nat Phos dosage to just half a tablet after each feed to see if there was any change. I hope this was the right thing to do? Can you please confirm or advise if I should still be giving her a full tablet after every feed?

          I have not made any other changes to the treatment yet, as I am awaiting your advice on whether we need to continue with the Nux Vomica, and the Arnica and Nat Phos that I am taking?

          I look forward to hearing your response.

          Kind regards,

          • Joe says:

            Erica

            You did right by reducing the Nat Phos to half tablet and as I expected her own digestive system seems to have taken over with her GERD stabilized.

            You may also stop the Nux V and observe if she can exist with just half tablet of Nat P which is a very safe remedy to be used. Nux V is not in the same category and we will observe if she can do without it and you will only give her just half tablet of Nat P.

    I live in the USA I discovered your site through abchomeopathy. Last night was first night using it and he didn’t sleep at all. Maybe 4 hrs total of sleep and I don’t see a response to reflux symptoms yet.

    • Joe says:

      lauren35

      I presume that you wished to convey that you gave Nat Phos 6x to your baby but that it did not help him as per your statement:

      “Last night was first night using it and he didn’t sleep at all. Maybe 4 hrs total of sleep and I don’t see a response to reflux symptoms yet.”

      Did you give him a FULL tablet or HALF?

      If it was half a tablet you should increase the next dose to a FULL tablet when hopefully you should have a better resonse.

      Report progress.

      For the record, I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD below:

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.

      It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      You will also take Arnica 30c which you will order in the Liquid Dilution as per instructions below. Please note that the Arnica is NOT for baby.
      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread .

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

    Joe, before I start me Joetherapy tomorrow, I wanted to know your thoughts on using DGL? I have used it this week a few times and I know you clearly stated to stop using all medicines for Gerd when I start your treatment. So, I wanted to check and see if it is safe to continue it or should it be stopped as well? Thank you for your time Joe. I really appreciate it.

          I have found that I have been spending a lot of time patiently responding to your multitude of questions and was surprised to note that you have NOT started to use my therapy up to now.

          Please report your response in a week after you have started on my therapy as I cannot possibly waste any more time on your case.

          • Monica64 says:

            I am sorry you feel that way Joe and I apologize for asking so many questions. With fibromyalgia comes severe brain fog so it makes it hard for me to think clearly, which is why I ask questions. As I stated a few days ago, I was waiting to receive all the remedies you stated I should take. They did not all arrive until today, so I was not able to start them. I will be doing so tomorrow. Again, please accept my apologies.

    Hi,
    I’m so sorry to bother you again but wondered if you could advise me. I wrote a note on Monday and haven’t seen a response. I know you are busy or might have not seen it so I’m posting it again. But after reading what you’ve postd the last few days I’m going to bump him up to a whole tablet for only 5 of his feedings (so ths means 4 of his feedings he won’t get any) and go get Nux Vomica but hold off till you advise me that I should start. I really do appreciate your time and advice on this situation. Below is the post I wrote earlier if you could answer a few of my questions. Thank you so much!!!

    Hi,

    I’m reporting back in on my 2 month olds progress with GERD. We started your remedy a week ago on Tuesday cutting out the medication the doctor prescribed. I am sorry I didn’t report sooner as you asked but my grandmother passed away so I was busy out of town dealing with our lose but contined using your remedy all the while. So for the last week I’ve given him 1/2 tablet of Nat Phos after every feeding and he usually nurses 9-10 times a day so he ends up getting 4.5 to 5 tablets a day. Since being on this he still seems squirmy at the breast while nursing at times and still spits up lots after each feeding. He is sleeping longer at night which has been nice for this tired momma but during the day he only goes about 2.5-3 hours from start to start of feedings and at evenings he wants to cluster feed every 1.5-2 hours till about his 10pm feeding then he starts sleeping well. I am burping him well after each feeding and since he was spitting so much up I’ve started waiting about 10-15 minutes after each feeding before giving him Nat Phos in hopes he wouldn’t just spit it up but even then as soon as I give it to him he spits up right away. I am keeping him elevated after each feeding as well. A plus is that I weighed him and after week on this method with all the spitting up he still gained a strong amount of weight an ounce a day (which he was a slow weight gainer at first so we monitor that closely but he’s been going great).
    I’m sorry again it has taken me awhile to report in to state our progress and ask you for any suggestions. What should I do now not seeing a change in his GERD? Should I give him a whole tablet just during 5 of the day feedings and not worry about after every feeding like the night and early early morning feedings? Would you suggest anything else or just keep this up? He is such a happy spitter so can make it harder to recognize his discomfort. I have been very faithful in giving him his dose after every feeding but I’ve not been so good myself. Due to the lack of sleep and being emotionally drained when taking those 3 times a day (2 tablets) he acted like my milk tasted different and I had to continue to relatch him. I didn’t know if Nat Phos could make milk taste different or cause you to dry up a little in your production. I nursed my older child till they were 1 and plan to do the same. He is doing better about not coming off breast during feedings due to discomfort (so I guess he could have been sensing how emotional this time was for me) but that’s with me taking nothing. Sorry I know that’s lots of inform but I would rather tell you too much then not enough information so I could get your best advice to where to go from here. Thank you so much for your help and advice.

    • Joe says:

      Blessed Family

      Thank you for your reminder and my apologies that I did not respond till I saw it now.

      I believe that the real reason for your baby’s reflux is due to your NOT giving him the Nat Phos 6x immediately after a feed. You stated that you give it to him 15 minutes after a feed and it is during this time that the acid works to reject your milk which he then proceeds to eject.

      Feel free to give him a full tablet and I am confident that his reflux will cease. When this occurs, as I hope it will, you can then taper off the dosage to half tablet and you should soon discover that he will not need any medication to digest his feeds which will not be so often as he will be taking in more milk and less often which will enable you to have more sleep.

      Nat Phos 6x cannot be compared to the PPI drugs that doctors prescribe even though they are fully aware that these drugs have been accepted as being dangerous for adults but they do still prescribe them for babies. Shocking ! Suggest you Google “The danger of using PPI drugs”

      Report his response in 24 hours. Do not hesitate to remind me again if I do not respond in a few hours.

    Dear Joe,

    I would appreciate it, if you could help me with my reflux/gerd. I am 43 years old, overweight and I am on generic Prilosec. I am working on eating healthier and working out at the gym to lose the weight I need to but I really want to be able to quit taking the Prilosec. I do suffer from Sleep Apnea as well, but I have a CPAP machine for that. Aside from the Prilosec, the only other thing I take for my reflux/gerd is a product called
    Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice. I chew one tablet a half hour before each of two meals. I do not have any other health issues. Please let me know your thoughts on how to help with my reflux so I can discontinue the Prilosec. Thank you in advance for your time. Scott

    • Joe says:

      Scott70

      It is very likely that you suffer from Hyperacidity or Gastritis, aka GERD (Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disease) and I shall copy my default therapy that has helped hundreds of patients to overcome this disease for which doctors usually prescribe PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) drugs which are dangerous and can cause many other more serious problem when used in the long term.

      You will hopefully discover that my therapy aka “Joepathy” will help you within the hour after you have taken your first dose after a meal.

      The remedies you will order are as follows:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 3-4 tablets taken immediately after each of 2 meals.
      This remedy accelerates the passage of food down the gut and prevents the formation of acid which would otherwise reflux causing GERD.

      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily.
      This remedy works to repair the damaged Esophagus which has metastasised to resemble the gut to deal with the Hcl refluxed into it causing severe distress. Arnica works with the Nat Phos to speedily cure the problem.

      Please observe the following simple rules:

      Do not eat large meals. Eat small meals but more often if you feel hungry. Do not drink more that a few sips of water after your meals. This is to prevent the further dilution of your gastric juice which can then reflux into your Esophagus which results in GERD.

      It is important that you do not go to bed for at least 2 hours after dinner as food will take about this time to digest and it is best to stay awake and upright to enable your food to digest before going to bed.

      No fatty food, alcohol, coffee, preserved meats like sausages, ham, bacon as they contain Saltpeter which will antidote the remedies listed immediately.

      If you suffer from a stomach ache or you feel your stomach puffing up before a meal during the day between meals, this is usually due to hunger pains, caused by your gastric juices attacking the inner lining and the wall of your stomach. The simple remedy is to eat some food like a biscuit or a banana between meals to keep the gastric juice away from digesting the stomach wall which results in a stomach ache which in some cases can be acute.

      You must drink at least 3 liters of liquids, preferably water daily and you must also exercise for at least half hour daily. It is important to sweat it out as this is all part of my therapy to overcome GERD.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in a 5ml Liquid Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle twice daily.

      It is understood that the patient will stop all other drugs which s/he may be taking for this ailment.
      Do not use Coffee, Cola beverages, preserved foods like sausages, ham and bacon as they contain Saltpeter.

      • Scott70 says:

        Thank you Joe for your help. I had prepared by reading your posts and purchased what I had hoped I would need. I started your therapy yesterday and have not taken any of my previous medications for gerd. I am eating smaller, healthy meals and drinking the water you recommend. I was wondering, if the heartburn gets over powering at any point, as it did earlier today, if I could drink some baking soda water? I know it will take time on your therapy to heal and feel good again and I am more than happy to wait. I was just in hopes the baking soda would be alright if the acid gets to be too much. My stomach has been on fire all day. Thank you!

        • Joe says:

          Scott70

          I believe that your GERD is CHRONIC and I usually add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily for patients like you. Please follow the protocol you have already used to make the Arnica WD and make the Nux V WD in the same manner.

          You will NOT drink Baking Soda as it will antidote ALL the Homeopathy.

          You will discover that Nux V will be far more effective than the Baking Soda.

    Joe, I started your therapy today with the Arnica 30c wet solution 3x a day, Nat Phos 6x – 4 tabs 3x a day for my Gerd. (and Mag Phos for diabetes). I did not take any medications I had been using for Gerd (Prevacid or Rolaids) and I followed all of your instructions. I am having severe heartburn tonight. It is coming up my throat and every time I belch acid comes up my throat. I feel very near to throwing up stomach acid. I have tried the Nux Vomica 4 tabs under the tongue with no relief. I am aware it will take time to heal after being on PPI’s since 1999. Can you please advice what to do in this situation?

    • Joe says:

      You state that you have used my therapy for just ONE DAY and you cannot possibly expect to be cured overnight. Your case is perhaps the most complicated that I have ever encountered and you must be patient and use my GERD therapy to observe if there is some way you can STOP the drugs you are using for your GERD which have poisoned and are poisoning your system thereby disposing you to so many other ailments.

      You may increase the number of tablets to 6 after every meal to see if this helps with the Nux Vomica also taken twice daily in the Wet dose.

      You will report your progress often to keep me advised of your response to my therapy.

      • Monica64 says:

        Joe, i do recognize this will take quite some time to reverse these issues. I was just concerned because the acid reflux is so bad this evening and the burning is making my voice hoarse, which is why I wrote. I do have the nux vomica 30x in pill form. Do I need to get a different type as I was not aware this was to be taken in a wet dose. I do take the arnica in wet dose. (Please excuse my confusion from the fibro fog) I understand I will up the nat phos 6x from 4 to 6 tabs after each of 3 meals. Please advise on the nux vomica.

In your second post of yesterday you want me to repeat the potency of the NV again.

      It appears to me that you are taking advantage of my patience and it is up to you to make arrangements to have someone close to you to supervise your medication and ensure that you are looked after as you cannot expect me at my advanced age of 85 to continue to answer your questions which you have repeated.

    Joe,

    I wanted to report my progress from about 2 weeks ago…towards the top of this posting I reached out to you regarding my baby who was diagnosed at 2 weeks of age with GERD. I had attempted your dose for 3 days and it worked but it returned about 3 weeks later and you recommended I give him 1 tablet after every feeding…Well I am here to tell you that if it wasnt for your help I would not have the most happy and lively baby ever…he went from eating every hour and nonstop crying at the time to now a 3 month old baby who does nothing but eat, sleep and laugh all the time. His eating improved considerably, at the time he could only drink 2 oz and is now drinking almost 4…he is sleeping comfortably and minimum 5-6 hours straight throughout the night. He is also finally sleeping in his crib which I could not do due to his silent reflux before. He took the dose for about 5 days straight and then I begin to taper it off and in less than a week it was completely gone. I has been 2 weeks today since the last time he had a dose and he is doing wonderful. Thank you so much for your time and help and most importantly helping me keep my baby off long term medicines that I did not want him on to begin with. I am eternally greatful!

      I am indeed delighted to have your news that in just 2 weeks my therapy aka “Joepathy” has succeeded in helping your baby to overcome his GERD.

      I have posted your case on my website and you can read it on:

      http://www.joedelivera.com/?m=201310

      You may not be aware that I am 85 years of age and that Homeopathy is NOT my profession. I have been helping patients for the last 25 years with my own interpretation of Homeopathy which the professional classical homeopaths labelled “Joepathy” as they discovered that I do not use the standard classical rules to treat patients but used my own method which both I and the patient discovered CURED the ailment.

      It is a post like yours that gives me the satisfaction to know that I have helped an infant to a better life away from the dangerous drugs like Zantac that was prescribed by your doctor who is aware of the dangers that this drug causes to Adults and more so to Infants because they were not taught that Homeopathy can CURE long before drugs can, without any danger to the patient who in your case is your infant son.

      Keep me informed of his response and I shall be happy to learn of his progress in life.

    Hi Joe,

    I’m reporting back in on my almost 3 month old and his GERD- I have been giving him one full tablet Nat Phos 6x after 5 different feedings throughout the day right after he’s done nursing and I burp him. I’ve been just putting the tablet right on his tongue so he would swallow all of it (when I dissolved it in liquid he spit half of it out). I’ve not seen any difference. He gets the tablet down for a few minutes before he spits up. I feel it’s a lot but but it did use to be a lot more liquidity and now it’s liquid but more chunky (if this makes sense). Sorry to explain in such detail but I want you to know exactly what I’m seeing. Also the last 2 days he’s been more squirmmy at the breast and had some milk come out Jim’s nose just a little (I know this a sign of GERD). He’s also been very fussy and wanting to nurse every 2 hours (he usually goes 2.5-3 hrs) the last few days. He is sleeping well at night though. I just wondered if sometimes it gets worse before better when you start this. Also to see what you would suggest for us to do now that we’ve done this therapy for almost 48 hours. Is it ok I’m just dissolving it directly on his tongue? Thanks so much for your help!!

      Blessed Family

      I believe that the reason for your baby not responding as usual to my therapy is because:
      “I’ve been just putting the tablet right on his tongue so he would swallow all of it (when I dissolved it in liquid he spit half of it out)”
      You must understand that an infant CANNOT handle a SOLID TABLET. You are very lucky that he did not CHOKE on it.

      You MUST give it to him DISSOLVED in milk. If he spits it up, you can give him another as it is very safe in use unlike the standard drugs which are not.

      It is likely that you may have to add:
      Nux Vomica 30c in Alcohol, to help the action of the Nat Phos tablet.

      When you get it, I shall give you instructions to use it.

    Thanks so much! I feel foolish for just placing on his tongue and not thinking about choking hazard. I just placed it on the tip and watched in dissolve and seemed to get it down easily opposed to what seemed like it all coming out of his mouth. I will give it another day or two giving him a whole tablet 5 times a day dissolved in milk and then report back to see if you think we need to start nux vomica 30c and get instructions. Thanks so much for your help and sharing your wisdom in this matter.

  32. Monica64 says:

    Joe,
    I am going into day 5 of your “Joetherapy” and wanted to update you on my progress. I am taking the Arnica in wet dose and using the Mag Phos and Nat Phos (dissolving under tongue) as prescribed. I will have my Nux Vomica sometime today. I am no longer taking any kind of medication for gerd. I am eating 3 small, bland meals a day and drinking at least 3 liters of water with the occasional cup of hot chamomile tea. My blood sugar first thing this morning was 145 so no significant change in that as of yet. I am however eating oatmeal, small servings of lima or garbanzo beans and pears or peaches for meals because nothing else seems to settle well. I know those aren’t the best options for diabetics because of the carbs. I am going to try and incorporate some turkey or chicken into my diet today and omit a carb. I also will be trying a small protein shake for breakfast in place of oatmeal.
    I do get heartburn off and on throughout the day, typically after meals, but it is nothing I can’t live with. When it gets too intense, I eat a few crackers and sip water in hopes it will soak up some of the stomach acid. This seems to work fairly well. I feel good in the mornings and even my pain from my fibro has been limited and my body does not feel as tight and crippled up. I believe my mood is even better!
    I have dropped 9lbs as well! But, I am running to the bathroom several times a day and first thing in the morning. I had recently gotten my IBS under control so I am not sure if it is that again or possibly one of the remedies causing a bit of issues that way. I do check my blood pressure to be sure it is good because I am worried my medications are going right through me. So far, my blood pressure is perfectly fine. It could be my metformin is not staying in my body long enough due to the bathroom issues and that is why my blood sugar has no change as of yet. But, I know these things will take time as well.
    All in all, I feel pretty good after coming off of PPI’s that I have been on for at least 15yrs. Thank you kindly for all of your help! I believe I have a chance to regain my health.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed.

      It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      You will also take Arnica 30c which you will order in the Liquid Dilution as per instructions below. Please note that the Arnica is NOT for baby.
      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread .

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

  34. Tina says:

    Mr. De Livera,
    I have read of your therapy on many sites, but keep coming across multiple differences. I am so happy to find your page to ask you directly.

    My 6 week old is suffering from acid reflux. Her doctor prescribed Prevacid last week and we did give her one dose, and then stopped, as I couldn’t bear the thought of giving her such a medication.

    I then found out about Nat Phos 6x, and have been giving her 1 tablet by mouth after each feed. I know now, after reading above, that the tablets need to be dissolved in 5ml of milk.

    I had not been taking the nat phos myself or arnica. I will start those as soon as I receive my arnica liquid dilution.
    Can you advise me what percentage of alcohol 20% or 87% for the arnica liquid dilution? Washington Homeopathy gives me two choices.

    Also, I have read adding Nux Vomica 30c in the wet dose, twice a day, for my baby to support the Nat Phos. Can you confirm or was this only for a specific case?

    I am sorry for all the questions. I wanted you to know how much you have impacted so many lives with your help. I read you are 85yo and I am so impressed with your heart to help.

    • Joe says:

      Tina

      I am happy to note that you have studied the many posts I have made on many websites including my own, to mothers whose babies suffer from Baby GERD which leads to Reflux for which the standard remedy that is prescribed by paediatricians is a dangerous PPI drug in your case, Prevacid. They do so simply because of ignorance but this is unfortunately promoted by the medical profession as they are not aware of the most effective remedy for Baby GERD which is Nat Phos 6x which is a tablet that is absolutely safe in use and which CURES the baby’s reflux in a few days, in some cases even hours.

      For the record I shall copy my default therapy below:

  35. Melanie says:

    Hi Mr. De Livera,
    I have a 10 week old baby with severe reflux. I recently heard about Nat Phos 6x and purchased a bottle from Vitamin Shoppe. I researched it and found your site. I started giving my baby 1 tablet every other feeding dissolved in formula. I wasn’t sure if it was safe to give after every feeding (she eats about 7 times a day). We saw some initial improvement with the Nat Phos 6x but she is still spitting up a ton after each feeding, and sometimes projectile vomiting. She has been taking Nat Phos 6x about 4 weeks now. We added a probiotic about 2 weeks after starting the NP and it seems to help tremendously with her gassiness, but not the reflux. I have read your “default therapy for baby GERD” and am wondering if I should be giving her the Nat Phos 6x after all 7 feedings each day. If so, a whole or half tablet dissolved in formula? Do you advise adding Nu Vomica to the regimen at this point? I was so happy to find your website and will appreciate any advice you can give! Thanks so much!

      I believe that you have studied my default therapy for Baby GERD and are already using the Nat Phos 6x I have recommended. Since she has not stopped projectile vomiting in 4 weeks it is now time to give her Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose twice daily and report her progress in 48 hours.

        Thank you so much for your reply! I will order the Nux Vomica 30c in the wet dose and update 48 hours after I receive it and give it to my baby. In the meantime, do you suggest I increase the Nat Phos 6x from every other feeding to every feeding (which would be a total of 6-7 tablets per day)? This would be doubling the amount of the NP that she currently takes. I want to make sure I’m giving her an effective dose for her symptoms without overdoing it. Please advise. I read your story and I am very grateful for your generosity in helping people like me discover homeopathic remedies in place of traditional medications! I will update 48 hours I receive the Nux Vomica. Thank you again!

        • Joe says:

          Melanie

          Nat Phos 6x is very safe in use. Nux Vomica may only be used for a limited period to reinforce the action of NP.

          You may give a tablet dissolved in milk after every feed and when he is comfortable, you may reduce the dose to half tablet.

          Please note that you cannot order the WET DOSE of Nux Vomica.
          Follow my instructions precisely as prescribed.

  36. Melanie says:

    Thank you for your help! I have ordered the Nux Vomica 30c in liquid dilution form. I will give my baby a tablet of Nat Phos 6x after every feeding for now. I will report back 48 hours after Nux Vomica is received. Again, thanks so much!

  37. Melanie says:

    Mr. De Livera,
    I wanted to report my baby’s progress while I am waiting for the Nux Vomica to arrive. I gave my baby 1 tablet of Nat Phos 6x (dissolved in formula) after each feeding yesterday for a total of 6 tablets. I didn’t give it to her during her 3am feeding, but did so after every other feed. Her bowels have not moved like they normally do, but it hasn’t seemed to bother her. However, her reflux seems much worse. She typically spits up a lot and projectile vomits once or twice a day. Over the last 24 hours, she has projectile vomited almost every feeding, and sometimes multiple times each feeding. We burp her very well and keep her inclined. She has also become very fussy, squirmy and jerky while eating, like she’s hungry but it bothers her to eat. Any advice you have is greatly appreciated.
    Melanie

    • Joe says:

      Melanie

      Let us observe how your baby responds after you give her the Nux V as this usually reinforces the action of Nat P almost overnight when baby will stop her refluxing.

      There are yet other remedies that we can use if those listed above do not work, but you do not have to get them right now till we test them first.

  38. Melanie says:

    Thank you Mr. De Livera! I will continue with the Nat Phos 6x and report back after the Nux Vomica is received. Thanks again!

    Joe,
    I have a 5 week old son who is exclusively breastfed who for the past 2 weeks has been having green and neon green bowels movements. For the first 3 weeks of his life he was having normal yellow seedy breastmilk bowel movements. I have not changed anything in my diet or eaten anything new. I have been dairy free for 3 days and he is still having the green poops every time he poops which is 4-6 times per day, he has not been sleeping well at night for the past week, after he eats it is hard to get him to settle down, he seems restless when he is trying to sleep at night, he will sometimes bring his knees to his belly and cry in pain, he spits up more often than my other 2 children, sometimes he spits up lots of undigested milk and other times the spit up looks curdled, he burps a lot and some sound very wet, he wants to eat all the time, sometimes every 30 minutes, he rarely stays content after a feeding. I feel like for the past 2 weeks he has been acting like he is in a growh spurt. I went to see a LC today and showed her the poop and pictures of some poopy diapers that he had. She told me it did not look like a foremilk imbalance. She had mentioned acid reflux and a dr appointment. I do not want him on medications. I would like to try a more natural approach before harsh medications.

    Before I proceed are there any side effects to the baby from taking these remedies? I saw you wrote that it would help me loose weight when I take the nat phos6x so then would baby loose weight or miss out on nutrients from my breast milk, because I was reading that it can help in loosing weight by preventing the food from absorbing into my system so will it have the same effect on baby? I do not wanting him loosing weight.

    • Joe says:

      Jami

      Nat Phos 6x (NP) has never been reported to reduce the infant’s weight. I have been prescribing this remedy to hundreds of babies and I have never had any adverse reports.

      NP will reduce the weight of anyone who is overweight and it does so by accelerating the passage of food down the gut which action inhibits the production of acid which is usually the body’s reaction, even at the tender age of babies only a few weeks old. It is this Hydrochloric acid (Hcl) that wreaks havoc in babies causing so much distress.

      You may give a full tablet of NP safely to your Baby and you will observe baby’s response in a few minutes as reported by mothers who were desperate for a cure of their baby’s distress for which doctors persist in prescribing PPI drugs like Prevacid and others which they know are dangerous for adults when used for over a week.
      The damage they cause to babies is best left unsaid.

      Report your baby’s response in 24 hours.

  41. Winter says:

    I started giving my 2 month old nat phos 6x three days ago. I have given him half a tablet three times a day for the past three days. His symptoms have improved. He has less crying while feeding (he is breastfed exclusively). But he is still spitting up a lot with still some discomfort at times with spitting up and burping. I burp him as often as possible, but it is heartbreaking that he has such pain from it.

    Could you please advise me how I should proceed. I wasn’t sure how long I could give it to an infant. Also, I tried to give it to him dissolved in breast milk after each feeding but he usually doesn’t want to drink anymore milk after he finishes feeding. So instead I have been crushing half a pill and then dipping my finger in water and mixing the crushed pill and placing the paste into his mouth. Is this ok?

    I space out his pill every other feeding throughout the day. He has been very hyper at night before bed. Could this be connected to the nat phos 6X?

    I must also add that I live in Germany. I had to have my sweet aunt, who came to visit this week, bring the nat phos 6x to me from the U.S. Glad I could get it because my poor son was in a lot of discomfort.

    Thank you for your help!

      It is quite safe to give Baby a FULL tablet of Nat Phos 6x which you will dissolve in water or milk and give him during a feed if he refuses to take it after.

      I am surprised to learn that you cannot source Nat Phos 6x in Germany where I am informed that there is a Homeopathic Pharmacy in almost every street.

      You are perhaps hot aware that Homeopathy was first discovered by Samuel Hahnemann over 250 years ago.

      Report his response in 24 hours after increasing the dosage.

        Dear Joe,

        Thank you for your response.

        I will further look into obtaining the nat phos 6x here. You are right in that their are many homeopaph pharmacies.

        I will try the full dosage with my boy starting tomorrow. For how many days is it safe to give it to him?

        Kind regards.

          Nat Phos 6x is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT to be compared with any drug like Prevacid or Nexium which are invariably prescribed by doctors for babies even though they are aware that their use over a long term can cause serious side effects.

          It is absolutely safe in use and you can read the experience of a few desperate mothers on the link below. There are also many hundreds of cases on my website which you can search for on it.

    Hello Dr.

    I am not sure if I am posting correctly. I tried to post before and cannot find the post and am unsure if you have responded. If this is a duplicate, I truly apologize.

    I came across your forum during one of my frantic internet searches. My son is almost 4 months old and is suffering terribly with silent reflux.

    A GI prescribed Zantac 3 times a day…it didn’t work. She then prescribed Prevacid (which we were really hesitant on because we do not believe in medicating children), but we gave in out of desperation. We are so tired of seeing our sweet little baby cry, scream, thrash… My family has barely seen him because we are absolutely home bound due to his condition.

    The prevacid compound worked like magic for about 4-5 days. We couldn’t even hear the reflux coming up anymore and the pain was gone! Day 6 everything came crashing down and he is swallowing reflux constantly, coughing, in frantic pain (we’ve had to give him Tylenol just to calm him down). Prevacid constipated him and gave him terrible gas pain. With .5 of organic prune juice he goes potty but the gas pain is still there plus the reflux.

    Until today I hadn’t found anything else that pointed to homeopathic help for reflux. Can you give me your recommendation???

    He’s 4 months old. Weighs about 16 lbs.

    1. What is nas phospate?
    2. What is the recommended dose?
    3. For how long?
    4. In your other posts it mentions 1 tablet 6 x a day dissolved in milk after a feed. We are feeding baby formula so that is technically his feed. Are you suggesting that I give him his 4 ounces THEN give him some additional formula with the dissolved tablet?? And I do this 6 x a day…?

    I also read something about Nux vomica??

    Any guidance would be appreciated.

    Thank you!!!

        Hello Dr and thank you for your response. I am not breast feeding so that piece would not be applicable to me. With that said, I still need clarification on what it means to give 1 tablet after feed with milk.

            Thank you for the links regarding asthma. My doctor did indeed suggest he had asthma but said they don’t confirm or treat asthma until the child is at least 3.

            I am now reporting progress on my daughter:

            She continues to display reflux symptoms and is extremely unsettled at night (unsettled during the day too), and will only sleep upright on my shoulder. She generally only sleeps for 20-30 minutes at a time, and wakes with grunts and cries. Each feed seems to upset her greatly afterwards, although she is feeding well enough to get enough milk and is gaining weight very well. She feeds often to relieve her pains I think.

            May I ask how much milk you recommend to use to dissolve the nat Phos?

    Dr. I will have the tablets by tomorrow. Can you provide the dosage and clarify the steps for me?

    • Joe says:

      gskirt

      Why don’t you read my prescription of yesterday instead of depending on me to hold your hand again?

      I have given you precise instructions on how to give the Nat Phos to baby and cannot understand why you want me to repeat it again.

      I prescribe my therapy FREE OF CHARGE and this perhaps is the reason why you bug me again within 24 hours today.

      • Gskirt says:

        Honestly Dr I can appreciate the service you are providing, but just as I am not being rude to you, there is no reason for you to be discourteous to me. I am simply asking for clarification because I did not understand your default prescription. If this is too much to ask, then thank you for your time.

  45. Elizabeth says:

    Dear Dr. De Livera,

    I, like many others on your website, am reaching out for your invaluable insights in the treatment of my 5 1/2 week old son’s reflux. My pediatrician has not yet diagnosed this as it has become increasingly more prevalent since our one month check up. Instinctually I’m certain, reflux is the cause of my son’s discomfort and I would like to extinguish this problem before it worsens. He exhibits many symptoms of reflux. Arching back, gurgling, spitting up increasingly large amounts of breast milk, fussy at the breast, interrupted sleeping patterns during the day, nasal congestion following feedings, choking (even though I burp him after every feeding). The only thing we are not having a problem with is weight gain. he is definitely thriving.

    First, it behooves me to tell you- that much to my dismay, my son is on a prophylactic antibiotic for an existing kidney issue that may warrant surgery in the next few weeks. He has been diagnosed with a blocked ureter and our pediatric urologist is non-negotiable on the antibiotic (2.5 ml of amoxicillin once daily). I have a feeling this may be partially to blame for the reflux. So my first question to you is, will your treatment be effective for him given he is on a course of antibiotics? I refuse to give my son any more prescription medication as i know it is ultimately not healthy. I also fought the amoxicillin but lost that battle with the urologist. My son’s general pediatrician is very supportive of naturopathic and homeopathic treatments. We also see a holistic chiropractor with whom I will also speak with about the reflux.

    I’ve read through your default therapy and previous cases. I intend to follow that unless otherwise instructed by you. I’m going to see if I can get the ingredients today at a local shop and if not, I will order them online.

    Any guidance you are willing to offer is greatly appreciated.
    If you are curious as to how I found you, it was through extensive research on the issue of homeopathic treatments for infant reflux and GERD. I found several links to your materials on various forums. Thank you!

    Warm Regards,
    Elizabeth

    • Joe says:

      Elizabeth

      I am very concerned with your report of your infant son’s report of a blocked ureter causing an infection for which your urologist has recommended surgery. I presume that you are aware of the danger of this surgery in the case of a baby only a few weeks old.

      I would urge you to consult another paediatrician in the largest Hospital in your city and seek an alternate opinion.

      You have already read my therapy for GERD using Nat Phos 6x which will not be affected by the Amoxyl but I would not recommend surgery for whatever reason without consulting more than one physician who may be more interested in the revenue he can derive from you rather than doing his duty towards your baby.

      • Elizabeth says:

        Thanks for your sincere concern. I live in NYC and have had several opinions. I am currently with one of the best practices in this area so I really do have to place a certain amount of trust in these doctors, although I am indeed largely skeptical of modern medicine and surgery in infants. I’d be hard pressed to find better medical care than in one of the largest cities on the East Coast and surely at one of the best hospitals. I am waiting to take my son for the renal scan next week and we will then see if the surgery is something that can be postponed. I’m not coming at this from a place of blind trust nor do I take it lightly. After the renal scan, I also intend to have yet another opinion. Again, I appreciate your concern and will let you know how your recommended treatment for the reflux works for my son.

        Kind regards,
        Elizabeth

        • Joe says:

          Elizabeth

          I am relieved to note that you live in NYC and have already consulted many opinions. I have encountered several cases where patients have been guided by a single opinion and have been instrumental in preventing unnecessary drugs and even surgery from being used to treat the patient. Hence my advice to you.

          I do believe that your baby is too young to be in surgery to treat his Ureter right now and if at all possible, I would leave him alone for a few more months or even years to observe if his normal growth will open up the blockage.

          If you would care to give me more data on the diagnosis of this blockage, I may be able to suggest some therapy.

          Please also keep me advised of the progress of his reflux which may be a contributory factor to his blocked ureter which is the first case I have encountered at his age.

  46. Rovina says:

    Hello Joe,

    It’s refreshing to finally find an alternative holistic remedy to Acid Reflux. My daughter was born premature at 26 weeks. She is now a healthy 7 month old, but she is suffering with Acid Reflux baby GERD. It started when she was one month old. She was exclusively breast feed, but then her pedi moved her to thicken formula. She is on Gerber Good Start sooth with added barley. She was not on any meds, until a month, Prevacid 15mg once a day was prescribed by her pedi. But I find she is still vomiting up the same, and she seems to have more gas too. I would love if you can provide the correct prescriptions and therapy to use. I am extremely eager to start this holistic therapy with my daughter soon as possible.

    Kind Regards,
    Rovina

    • Joe says:

      Rovina

      I am glad to learn that your Baby girl is “is now a healthy 7 month old, but she is suffering with Acid Reflux baby GERD.”

      Since she was born prematurely at 26 weeks she is in real terms only 4.5 months old and at that tender age to be instructed by your paediatrician to “moved her to thicken formula”, is simply preposterous.

      I presume that this is the medicine that they all are brainwashed into accepting and you must consider yourself fortunate that you located me to advise you on her GERD.

      I must insist that you STOP the Prevacid prescribed as you can see that it is causing more problems than it solves, as described by you. At the dosage you indicated it can even be considered as dangerous for a baby with her history.

      I would suggest that you go back to just Breast Feeding and you will add my default therapy for Baby GERD copied below:

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. You will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

      It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      You will also take Arnica 30c which you will order in the Liquid Dilution as per instructions below. Please note that the Arnica is NOT for baby.
      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread .

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

  47. Rovina says:

    Hello Joe,

    Thank you so much for your response it’s much appreciated. I do have a few follow-up questions and some clarifications to make based on my first comment I made reaching out to you.

    First clarification as I just want to let you know that my daughter is seven months corrected age right now so just want to make sure that you have the correct info on her age.

    Second at the present time she has been off of breast milk now for about I would say four months so I’m no longer producing any breastmilk so I can’t really go back go back to breast-feeding her again. Bummer I know!

    Third she has never been big on burping, she sometimes does and other times none. So based on your remedy if she does not burp after feeding her when using Nat Phos 6x. Would this affect the remedy in any way?

    I have stopped the her reflux meds because it seems to not be helping. Before I start your program I do have a few followup questions for my clarification as I do want this to be successful for her.

    1. Since I can no longer breast feed my daughter, does this change the prescribed therapy that you provided me?

    2. What’s the duration of days for the prescribed therapy/remedy? Or is this a continuos remedy?

    3. Is Nat Phos 6x the only thing I need to purchase for this remedy since she will continue on the formula?

    I am so anxious to start this therapy for my daughter. I spoke to her pedi today about your program and he was quite interested to see if your homeopathic therapy will help my daughter, and he is hoping its a success, me too!

    I look forward to hearing from you,

    Cheers,
    Rovina

    • Joe says:

      Rovina

      The time here in Colombo where I live is coming on to midnight and I do not have the time to reply you right now but I want you to start on the Nat Phos 6x therapy immediately and report her response to me within 12 hours.

      If you are not lactating, you will use formula but STOP the solids till her reflux is stabilized.

      You may like to read and share my therapy with your pediatrician for Baby Gerd by doing a search under that term on my website.

  48. Rovina says:

    Joe,

    Most appreciated! I will follow up with you tomorrow.

    • Rovina says:

      Hello Joe,

      I just wanted to give you a status report on my daughter with a full 24 hour remedy testing.

      Here is what I’ve seen so far.

      A. I started giving Nat Phos 6x therapy yesterday starting at her 5:00pm feeding. She typically drinks 4oz every 2 1/2 to 3 hours. So after feeding her the first 3oz I resolved the Nat Phos 6x (1 tablet) in the 1oz left. She drank it all. But refused to burp. She did great after her feeding, with no spit up. She did have a few dry 2 second cough, but did great. I also noticed her gas was less after the 5:00pm feeding. I then again gave her the Nat Phos 6x (1tab) at her 8:00pm feeding, again she did great and finished her entire bottle. She did not burp, but went to sleep for the night. She woke up at 3:00am for a small feeding. But I did not give her the Nat Phos 6x at this feeding, due to the limitation of only giving the Nat Phos 6x (6x in 24 hours). Either way she went back to sleep on he back with no issues. She woke up at 7:30am for the morning feeding.

      B. I gave her the Nat Phos 6x at ther 8:00am feeding, again she did great with no spit up or gas.

      C. Before her 11:00am feeding she had what I call “acid bomb” spit up at 10:30am. She digested all her food from her 8:00am feeding but had lots of acid in her tummy. I feed her at 11:00am and gave her the Nat Phos 6x. Again she did great, and took a nap after. After her nap she was rolling around on the floor and at 1:00pm she had another “acid bomb” spit up. Against all her food was digested and only acid was coming out of her mouth.

      D. I feed her again at 2:00pm and did great, took another nap. But again at 5:00pm she had another “acid bomb” spit up, again it was only acid.

      E. I just feed her again at 5:00pm, she is now sleeping comfortably. But spitting up 3 “acid bombs” in one day she has never done.

      Here are my questions:

      1. Why so much acid spitting up?

      2. What can I do to stop these acid spit ups?

      3. Do I need to add anything else to this therapy?

      4. Does the therapy need to be adjusted to stop her spitting up acid?

      Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

      Oversell I can see a difference with giving her Nat Phos 6x, no vomiting up all her food, her dry coughing is less, her gagging is less as well, and no terrible gas or pain from the gas.

      I look forward in hearing back from you.

      Thanks,
      Rovina

      • Joe says:

        Rovina

        You have given Nat Phos to baby for just under 24 hours and you cannot expect it to CURE her within this time.

        It usually takes a few days to do so when you can reduce the dosage but you will continue to use my therapy for another 48 hours and report progress.

        • Rovina says:

          Hello Joe,

          Here is the progress report for my daughter. Since staring the therapy 5 days total so far I have seen some improvements with her reflux. She went from vomiting 3x’s a day to now 1x a day, big improvement! But she still seems to be getting a lot of acid in her stomic, thus spitting up acid about 2x’s a day now. She is still eating 3-4oz at a time.. So I feed her every 2-3 hours. I also notice her gaggingis a little less, but I know the gagging happnes when she put her fingers in her mouth too far back causing gagging and leading to spitting up. Any suggestions on helping her with her gagging?

          Would you like me to still continue your therapy of 1 Nat Phos after her feedings, or start tapering it down to 1/2 Nat Phos after each feedin?

          Overall your therapy is working, I might need to administer your therapy a little longer. Please advise what next steps I should take?

          Thanks Rovina!

          • Joe says:

            Rovina

            Your baby seems to be doing well judging by your reports for a premature baby as you started on my therapy just 4 days ago.

            You may use Nat Phos very safely in comparison to the drugs you were prescribed which are not safe for use for babies. Not even for adults.

            I regret that I cannot help you with her gagging after tickling her throat which you will have to prevent by some means.

            I hope that you do not continue to give her solids as oer the advice of your doctor, as this could have started her reflux originally.

          • Rovina says:

            Hello Joe!

            Success is the word today! Your remedy worked, it just needed a little time. Thank you ver much for your guidance in your therapy. My daughter now has “no” vomit days. And is gaining her weight nicely.

            I do have two last questions:

            1. Since my daughter has been spitting up acid, she’s still not taking her bottle when she is awake. Leading me to believe her throat may be hurting her from all the acid spit up. Do you have a remedy to help sooth her throat?

            2. If I do have to giver her the Nat Phos when I see any reflux issues arises. Should I give her half the pill or whole?

            Cheers,
            Rovina

            • Joe says:

              Rovina

              I am glad to learn that your daughter’s GERD has finally stabilised after about 10 days on my therapy. This extra delay is perhaps due to her being a preemie as in my experience babies respond in a couple of days to my Nat Phos therapy.

              You may now reduce her dosage of NP to half tablet after a feed and when she seems better you may even stop the NP. You will however keep a stock handy to be used if she shows any signs of distress again, which I do not envisage.

              I do not think that she needs any other remedy to sooth her throat which I believe will resolve on its own now that she does not reflux.

              I would request you to take her to the paediatrician who was treating her last month and tell him about the Nat Phos 6x and perhaps even present him with a sample for test purposes.

              I would appreciate a progress report from you to enable me to keep track of her status in later life. Do not hesitate to consult me for any problems she may present later in life.

    Hello sir please give advice on helping my 14 week old baby boy.
    I am 30 years old and he is my first born.
    About 2 weeks ago he started spitting up he is on similac gas and fussyness formula as I was not able to produce milk to breast feed him.
    Our doctor put him on zantac last week I gave him this medication for a week and do not see much difference as he still spits up almost every feeding.
    He also started dry coughing alot but last night after his feeding he kept on making throwup/ gag sounds and was not burping finally he spit up his milk and felt better.
    I have stopped his zantac since yesterday and am looking to help him feel better with natural products.

    My three and 4 days old daughter grunts alot, she becomes so red and her stomach becomes hard. She does it all night and seems so uncomfortable.she does it before a bowel movement too. I am exclusively breastfeeding her and dont know if it’s because of what I am eating that’s making her gassy and making it hard for her to release the air in her stomach.

    • Joe says:

      Iqra

      You do not have to be so concerned about your 4 day old daughter whom you state:
      “grunts alot, she becomes so red and her stomach becomes hard”

      Let us observe how she progresses in the next few weeks and if her condition is still causing you concern, feel free to report it on my website for advice.

      You must burp her after every feed to release the air she would have sucked during feeding. This will hopefully fix the problem.

      You can take Nat Phos 6x dose 2-3 tablets after every meal as the effect will pass over to baby through your breast milk and this will hopefully reduce her problem.

      Nat Phos 6x will also reduce your weight by 1kg per week.
      It is absolutely safe to be used as it is NOT a drug.

    According to your kind advise I have given my son Nat phos 6x first 24 hours not exceeding mote then 6 doses after feedings. 2nd day I reduced the doses to half pill.
    His symptoms are greatly reduced but since last night when he is laying down and sitting up some of the milk is coming up his throat and he tries to swallow it back he looks uncomfortable and also has a dry cough along with reflux. Sometimes this is followed by hiccups. He has had the cough for past few weeks.
    Please advise how to proceed he is on 98% lactose free formula similac sensitive gas and fussiness.

      You cannot expect your baby boy to be CURED in just 48 hours.

      According to your report he is doing very nicely and you will have to let his digestive system take over without any drugs or remedies but this will take a few more days.

    Thank you for your kind reply please advise if I should continue with 1tablet after feedings? Please advise how long should I continue with this remedy.

    Dr Joe.,

    I have a a 2 month old baby and has t baby gerd. I found your website and started giving him NP6X one pellet after each feeding but no more than 6 per day is day 5 and he seems so much better but still really gassy and colicky. I just got the Nix vomica but couldn’t find the Wet version at any store in my area and didn’t want to order online and wait for i since the baby has been really uncomfortable. Please let me know if the same if I take 5 pellets of Nux Vom and pass it to him through my milk and continue to give Nat Phos 6x directly to him. He’s breastfed and formula fed once or twice a day.
    Thank you so much
    God bless you

    • Joe says:

      Ana Gereda

      “Please let me know if the same if I take 5 pellets of Nux Vom and pass it to him through my milk and continue to give Nat Phos 6x directly to him. He’s breastfed and formula fed once or twice a day.”

      Homeopathic remedies do NOT work in this manner. You cannot expect any remedy to be passed on the baby by your taking it. You need not give him Nux V unless he does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x. From your statement it seems to have helped him and you will be patient and observe his response in a few days.

      For the record I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD as I do not seem to have done so for you so far:

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. You will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

      Answering your question:
      Nat Phos 6x is NOT a drug and is absolutely safe to be taken by babies as long as it is helping them. You will of course stop the remedy when you discover that baby does not need it any more.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      You will also take Arnica 30c which you will order in the Liquid Dilution as per instructions below. Please note that the Arnica is NOT for baby.
      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.

  55. Ana Gereda says:

    Forgot to tell you on day 3rd and 4th of NP6. Reduced dosis to 4 a day. Maybe that’s why not much improvement since then. For how long is this safe to take?

  56. Ana Gereda says:

    Dr Joe,

    Thanks for answering in detail all my questions.

    I’ve noticed that baby is still very uncomfortabe espe.cially when he wants to poop he seems colicky but some diluted drop of lavanWhder oil on tummy helps with the cryimg. When administer Nat Phos baby gets . calmerand falls asleep. HeHewakes up breathing in a way that makes me think he aspired the milk, no spitting up though and eventhough I burp him after each feeding.He seems anxious to eat all the time

    • Joe says:

      Ana Gereda

      If as you state the Nat Phos helps him, feel free to use is as necessary.

      ” HeHewakes up breathing in a way that makes me think he aspired the milk”
      It is very unlikely that he “aspires” the milk as it cannot reach his lungs.

    Hi there – my 5w old son has been suffering from silent reflux. He has been gaining well but has developed a stridor and is in daily pain. After ruling out structural issues, we were prescribed ranitidine. After a day and a half, his symptoms are WORSE and I have never seen him in so much pain. We are going to start the Nat phos tomorrow. What dosage and duration do you recommend? He is 5 weeks, 3 days, 14 pounds. Thanks you!!!

      I cannot understand the reason why pediatricians prescribe PPI drugs for babies when they are aware that they are harmful for adults and far more dangerous for babies. Do a Google search under “The danger of PPI drugs” to read how these drugs can affect patients.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

        Thank you so much for your fast and thorough response, Doctor!

        1. If I am not to exceed 6 doses but feeding frequently, should the last feedings of the day be without the medicine or should I space it out across the day’s feedings? I currently feed him about 8-10 times per day.

        2. Should I follow this schedule without the arnica? I wil order some, but I believe I will be able to get the Nat phos sooner. Should I start on that first even if I don’t have the arnica?

        3. How should I reduce the doses? Should I change to half a dose at some point? The next day?

        THANK YOU!

        • Joe says:

          Kelly Stonelake

          You may give him 1 tablet NP for the first few feeds and you should discover a marked difference in his status within the hour, hopefully. This sudden transformation has been reported to me often and you can read a case I posted under Articles today where baby was CURED in 3 days after suffering for sometime from PPI drugs.

          You can reduce the dose to half tablet for the last 2 feeds but be assured that NP is absolutely safe unlike the PPI drugs.

          Remember that the Arnica is NOT for baby.

          Report progress daily.

          • Kelly Stonelake says:

            Thank you. After his first dose, he spit up a lot which is not normal for him (silent reflux). Is that okay?

            Will this help w his constipation? He is in considerable pain.

            • Joe says:

              Kelly Stonelake

              His current reflux is NOT DUE to the first dose of Nat Phos you gave him.
              It should help his constipation and you will report progress.

              If he has been consipated during the past few days, you can do a gentle massage of his abdomen to help expel the blockage.

  59. Kelly Stonelake says:

    So far so good — in combination with chiropractic care, I have a new baby today. He doesn’t seem to have any reflux. Knock on wood. I will continue treatment and update tomorrow.

  60. Jason Bibbings says:

    Hello – my baby is just 1 week old (6lbs 12oz), and I’m already seeing issues with silent GERD. He was treated with antibiotics shortly after birth, but it was precautionary, and he is otherwise healthy.

    He is breastfeeding exclusively and he nurses vigorously due to his belly pain. He does not sleep well lying down, and often makes a choking and slightly weezy sound due to regurgitation after feeding.

    I have begun today to administer 1/2 Nat Phos 6x tablet due to his small size. Is there anything else I should consider due to his small size?

    • Joe says:

      Jason Bibbings

      I am gratified to note that you have already given your baby 1/2 tablet of Nat Phos 6x.

      You should discover by now that baby is OK. When you find that he has stabilized you can wean him off the NP 6x.
      It is very likely that his gastric problem is due to the antibiotic you gave him which has upset the bacteria in his gut. You can replace them with a Probiotic suitable for babies which you will have to source with advice from a doctor.

      I shall copy below my default therapy for Baby GERD:

  61. Jason Bibbings says:

    Thank you for the response. We are still seeing the GERD present after the Nat Phos 6x treatments. The baby received 1/2 tablet about 5 hours ago. He received another 1/2 tablet about two hours ago.

    He fed again about an hour ago, and because he was so irritable, we gave him a full tablet dissolved in water after the feeding.

    His mother has taken a single dose of 2 Nat Phos 6x in that time. We also could only find the pellet version of the arnica 30c and my wife has also taken one of those. Should we try something different?

    Thank you.

    • Joe says:

      Jason Bibbings

      It is most likely that the antibiotic was responsible for his current distress and I believe that the Probiotic I prescribed which you will have to get after discussing with your doctor, is the solution.

      In the meanwhile you will continue with the NP which you can safely give in a full tablet and report results.

      Why was baby given an antibiotic?

      It is possible that your doctors prefer to create a problem to ensure that they are kept in business.

      • Jason Bibbings says:

        Thank you. We will try to look for some probiotics. Is it ok to stop the Nat Phos 6x doses until we get the probiotic, as it seemed to upset his condition even more?

        He was given antibiotics as a precaution against an infection, but it turns out he never had one.

        • Jason Bibbings says:

          We were unable to contact our pediatrician until next week, but we found some probiotics in the meantime: http://www.megafood.com/childrens-health/kids-n-us-megaflora

          This had multiple strains of bacteria, including lactobacillus reuteri which has been shown to improve reflux in infants in clinical studies, and since he was treated with a broad spectrum antibiotic we figured a broad spectrum probiotic was good as well. We have also ordered probiotic drops from biogaia.

          The on-call pediatrician told us to get some over-the-counter simethicone drops, and we’ve used those today. Between the probiotics, drops, and a removal of wheat from our diet we have seen a slight improvement today.

          We have not given him the Nat Phos 6x today because we were scared since he seemed worse yesterday after we administered it.

          • Joe says:

            Jason Bibbings

            It is very unlikely that Nat Phos 6x can cause any more distress to Baby. Since he is just a week old you can safely give him half tablet dissolved in your breast milk if the probiotic alone is not helping him.

            I am not aware what the simethicone drops are and it is best not to experiment with unknown drugs which can aggravate a case of reflux which is rare in a baby under 2 weeks of age and thereby make it a more difficult case to treat..

    Hi I have read a lot about this remedy my 2 month old got prescribed with ranitidine I give it to him for about 3 or 4 days but he didn’t get any better so we decided to start with this remedy today is his 4th day on it the first day I give him 1 tablet dissolved in 5 ml of water he was fussy keep arching his back but didn’t throw up that much the second day i give him 1/2 of tablet dissolved in 5 ml of water seem way better he was even smiling and took two naps during the day the first one for 3 homes n the second one for about 4 hours and at night he just woke up once for a feeding the third day after the first feeding of the morning I give him 1/2 of tablet again but it didn’t seem to work on him so the next one I went back up to 1 tablet he keep seem un confortable and today which is the fourth day we keep doing the whole tablet he hasn’t been able to nap for more that an hour he’s been throwing up after every feed but it doesn’t seem to bother him but I’m worry about him I don’t know if I did wrong going back up to 1 tablet I hope you can help me with this situation. Oh I forgot to mention that he’s strictly breasfeed if that helps with something thx.

    • Joe says:

      I do admire your unilateral use of Nat Phos 6x in the manner that you have done for your Baby which worked at first and did not continue to do so after a few doses.

      I have come across a few similar cases like your baby and have prescribed Aethusa Cynapium 30c in the Wet dose given twice daily. This helps the baby to digest milk to which some babies are allergic.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.

    Hello Joe thankyou for your previous help I have been giving my now 4 month old Nat phos 6 for about 3 weeks he is a lot better now but lately everytime we lay him down flat he gets very uncomfortable we can see reflex taking place where something comes up his throat and he tries to swallow it back. This makes him very uncomfortable he also gets a dry cough following the reflux. sometimes during and after reflux takes place he also takes a long deep breath holds it and then releases it.
    Lately the cough and reflux takes place even when he is upright and few hours have passed since the last feeding.
    I have been giving him 1tablet Nat p 6 desolved in water after almost every feeding.
    We also were extremely worried about the breathing issue he is having where he keeps on holding his breath. He has been to urgent care twice and doctors do not think anything is wrong with him.
    please advise how to proceed next as this new breathing, coughing and constant reflux milk comming up his throat issue has developed.
    Thank you

      “I have been giving him 1tablet Nat p 6 desolved in water after almost every feeding.”

      It is best to give him at least half tablet after a feed to enable his digestive process to work better. It promotes Peristalsis and softens the stool and thereby ensures a daily motion.

      NP 6x is absolutely safe in use. It is not a drug.

      A Probiotic can also help by adding to the bacteria in the gut but you will get advice from your pediatrician.

  64. Gabrielle Beaudoin says:

    Dear Joe,

    I am so thankful I have found this website! I have been giving my 8 week old son Nat Phos tablets for the past week and his reflux has improved tremendously! He is much happier and content, and he sleeps better too! Now sometimes after I give him the NP he spits up almost immediately, and I was wondering if I should give him another dose in that case? I give him 4 tablets a day, dissolved in milk.

    Thank you a lot,
    Gabrielle

    • Joe says:

      Gabrielle Beaudoin

      Glad to learn that your baby has stabilized in his feeding routine.

      If as you state, he spits up immediately after a feed, you can give him half tablet dissolved in milk.

      Where do you live? France?

  65. Gabrielle Beaudoin says:

    Thank you very much for your quick reply. I live in Québec, Canada 🙂
    I am very thankful for your help!

  66. Jeanette PK says:

    Dear Joe,
    My name is Jeanette, I am from Norway, but I currently live in the Canary Islands (Spain). I am married to Bettina, who is from Denmark. My wife gave birth to our first son, who is 2 years old. I am writing to you because I need help with our second son, who is now 7 1/2 months old, who I think has silent reflux.

    I would like to apologize in advance for a very long post, but I think it is important that you know the entire history. I am usually a very positive person who loves life, but having a baby with so many problems and trying to be the best mom ever and desperately trying to find “a cure” has taken it’s toll on me. I am hopeful and do feel like it is meant to be that I came across your website.

    I gave birth to my son by c-section, he weighed 2843 grams and was 48 cm long. A bit on the small side, but was declared healthy at the hospital. By week 3 he became very fussy and had alot of gas. He had many bowel movements per day, all completely liquid and greenish. He appeared to be in pain most of the time, as if his muscles hurt. He would also bend backwards (C-shape), even when he was breastfed. He slept only for short periods and would rarely sleep longer than 30 min. He would quickly become overstimulated and he had the Moro-reflex all the time. He would often refuse to feed even though he was hungry and it was always best to breastfeed him when he was tired or asleep as he would be relaxed. His gums have been itching since he was 2 1/2 months, and is now teething really bad at 7 1/2 months (no teeth yet). He would always sweat alot during feeding and seemed very stressed, his arm would go back and forth. I had an abundance of milk, and a strong milk flow, which seemed to irritate him and he would often latch on and off and then not want to feed anymore if the milk flow was too strong. He would be burped and then not want to feed anymore after that. He did not want a pacifier or a bottle (with breast milk). He did not want to lay flat down on his back, he hated the baby carriage, he would scream in pain and arch his back. He wanted to be carried all the time. He would scream if I held his legs up too high while changing his diapers. He would only sleep if he slept close to me.

    I took him to a couple of doctors who all suggested it was colic. I took him to a physiotherapist who said it was all related to muscle tensions and used Voita therapy. We also tried naprapathy, different pediatricians etc etc. His blood work showed no allergies. I am vegan (have been for almost 20 years, I am 32 years old), but also changed my diet early on and ate no gassy foods, no spicy foods etc. I kept eliminating foods to the point where I almost didn’t eat anything, which I think caused my milk to decrease. I was and am still very stressed which I think has affected the amount of breast milk I have. I am petite in size and lost alot of weight because of stress and a poor diet. I have always taken vitamins, and extra prenatal supplements while pregnant & nursing. I was told to just wait it out, but always felt like it was more than just colic. I tried giving him fennel and chamomille tea, I drank alot of nursing tea. I have given him probiotics since he was 5 weeks old. He gets vitamin D (since 4 weeks), b12 and iron supplements (since 6 months).

    When he was 6 weeks old, we moved to the Canary Islands. I have tried to see different doctors here, but they all seem to not care too much about babies, and just told me to wait it out, that he would grow out of it. I have been going insane googling every spare minute and just recently found out that it seems he has all the symptoms of a baby with silent reflux. He rarely spits up, but has “wet burps” and I have noticed him swallowing now that I read about silent reflux. It breaks my heart to know that he probably has had heartburn for so long without us noticing. We have never heard of it and have felt like we’ve tried it all.

    He started holding his breath a few months ago which was very scary. It seems like he does that sometimes when he is placed on his back, before he burps, or gets too excited. He burps alot and seems to swallow air while eating and when he holds his breath.

    He is now no longer scared of everything, he gets overstimulated, but not as much as before. He seems happier and can now sit up by himself, which he loves as he does not want to lay on his back. He has had no problem laying on his stomach during tummy time. He still does not sleep well and often wakes up after 30 min, I have carried him almost 24/7 and have to pick him up so many times during the night. He likes to sleep on his left side.

    We took him to a doctor 2 weeks ago and described his symptoms. She agreed it could be silent reflux. She prescribed omeprazole 7 mg a day. We have reluctantly given him this medicine for 2 weeks. He hates it and cries so much. I don’t feel like it has helped that much either. I do not like giving my baby this kind of medicine and am desperate to find another solution. I googled homeopathy and found someone who wrote about nux vomica. From there I found your website tonight. I would love to stop the omeprazole and start your treatment.

    He started trying a few solids from 4 months because the doctor thought it would be good for him because of his loose stools (rice cereal, sweet potato). He gained weight very quickly after birth so the doctors always said there is nothing wrong with him, he looks fine! He is now almost 8 kg and 69 cm. He however does not like to eat solids, he seems hungry, but only eats a few spoons per meal. He wants to breastfeed all the time, and only one breast at a time. He often falls asleep while breastfeeding and is then difficult to burp. He wants to breastfeed many times during the night. Can this be because he is not getting enough food? I am worried that he is not getting enough food, and I don’t know if he is hungry or if it’s comfort feeding. He seems to want solid food even less now that he is on omeprazole, but he is extremely interested in our food, just not the cereals and purees I make for him. (We make all baby food from scratch, mostly organic, never baby food jars).

    Since I read about silent reflux we have elevated his bed and I always keep him upright after feedings. I have always used loose clothing and diapers. He sleeps mostly on his left side.

    He is such a happy boy when he feels good, but something is clearly bugging him. I cannot wait for this treatment to help my little charmer.

    I am a true believer that what affects mom affects the baby, so here’s some of my history: I was diagnosed with an under active thyroid in 2007 and put on Levothyroxin. I am now on a 100/125 mcg a day. I really don’t like taking this medication, but am told I have to take it for the rest of my life. I am very nauseous at night and especially in the morning. I am extremely stressed due to all the problems with my baby and constantly trying to figure out new ways to help him. I carry him around day & night and am exhausted. I almost never sleep. I rarely get out of the house. I eat a very poor diet because I am scared to eat something he will react badly to. I feel like I have absolutely no energy and I am just on “auto-pilot” doing what I have to, which is caring to his needs and not mine. I have gotten acne (stress & hormone related?) and have dark pigmentation spots on my face, from pregnancy, my whole body aches from carrying him around all day. Not sure if it is relevant, but I am also allergic to cats and dogs, and I have dry eyes due to lasik surgery. Are there any remedies I should take?

    All remedies must be ordered at the pharmacy here, so it will take me more than 24 hours to give you feedback once I start the treatment. I wanted to let you know in advance 🙂

    I have a few questions:
    What foods should I avoid?
    What are safe foods for me to eat?
    What foods are safe to give him?
    Wet dose – do I insert 3 drops of the remedy every time in the same bottle before I take it? I am afraid I haven’t understood it correctly.
    You mention that no other medication is to be given during your treatment – does this include paracetamol for severe teething?
    I have given him Chamomilla 6x and Hyland’s teething tablets, but not on a regular basis, what remedy can I give him for teething? He is in so much pain nowadays.
    You mention that Nat Phos will reduce my weight, I am already very skinny, will this affect my weight?
    These are the supplements I take each day: Prenatal multivitamin, spirulina, chlorella, flax seed oil, kelp, selenium, zinc, vitamin C, dha/epa from algea, B12 – Do you think any of them might affect my baby in a bad way?

    Again, I am sorry this is so long and probably all over the place. I rarely have time for myself, so this has been written during short periods while my baby boy slept over the coarse of many late night hours..

    Thank you thank you thank you in advance!

    All the best,
    Jeanette 😉

      “My name is Jeanette, I am from Norway, but I currently live in the Canary Islands (Spain). I am married to Bettina, who is from Denmark. My wife gave birth to our first son, who is 2 years old. I am writing to you because I need help with our second son, who is now 7 1/2 months old, who I think has silent reflux. “

      I am confused.

      Jeanette is always the name given to a girl and yet you state that you are Jeanette and that you are married to Bettina who is your wife. You also state:
      “I gave birth to my son by c-section, he weighed 2843 grams and was 48 cm long.”

      This ADDS to my confusion.

      However dealing with your baby son, 7 1/2 months old it seems obvious to me that he suffers from Baby GERD and I note that you have already read and intend using my default therapy which I have listed on my website.

      Since Bettina is a vegetarian there are no foods to be avoided.
      The Wet dose is many by inserting 3 drops of the remedy in Alcohol into 500ml water which you do not have to repeat every time you take a capful or 5ml.

      I would prefer that you avoid ALL drugs for baby including Paracetamol as the damage to the liver is too high a price to pay.

      I shall for the record copy my therapy for Baby GERD below:

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. You will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.

      You will also take Arnica 30c which you will order in the Liquid Dilution as per instructions below. Please note that the Arnica is NOT for baby.
      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

        Dear Joe,

        We are a same-sex couple, I thought I had explained that well enough since I wrote that I gave birth to him and that I am breastfeeding 🙂 We are two moms. I, Jeanette, am a vegan, so if I understand correctly there are no foods I should avoid? Not even foods that can cause acid reflux? (chocolate, tomato, fruit, onions, spicy foods etc) Also, is the list of supplements I take (as decribed in my first post) ok for my baby (breatsmilk)?

        Our baby boy is not vaccinated.

        Are there any foods I should avoid giving my baby?

        I will order Nat Phos 6x and Arnica 30c today, please note that it will take a few days to arrive. I will report progress as soon as I start using the remedies.

        Thank you for your quick reply. I am very grateful for your help!

          Dear Joe,

          I heard back from the pharmacy where I ordered the remedies today. They have to order Nat Phos from the mainland (Madrid) so I won’t get until mid next week. They did however have Arnica 30c. Can I start taking Arnica or should I wait?

          Could you also answer my questions in my previous post concerning food for me and my baby? Thank you!

            Dear Joe,

            I have now given my baby boy Nat Phos for 24 hours (and I have taken Arnica wet dose twice daily and Nat Phos 2 tablets 3 times after meals). I haven’t seen much improvement yet, but he seems a little happier, which is great! He still sleeps very little and wants to eat all night. He has also got his first cold and a bad cough, so this might also play a part.

          • Jeanette PK says:

            Dear Joe,

            I have now given my baby nat phos for 5 days and he has not gotten any better. In fact, it seems like he is spitting up more now. He has silent reflux so I am not used to him actually spitting up. What should I do now? Thank you again!

            • Joe says:

              I believe that it is now time to start him off on Nux Vomica 30c which you will give him in the Wet dose.
              (NOT FROM THE BOTTLE YOU BOUGHT FROM THE PHARMACY WHICH IS ALCOHOL).

              You will give it twice daily and report.

    Also, should I keep the liquid remedies in the refrigerator? As well as the wet dose bottle? Thank you again!

      I have prescribed for your Baby’s GERD and I regret that I cannot advise you about your own food as I am not a nutritionist.

      I am also not a qualified Homeopath as to me Homeopathy is only a Hobby to which I am dedicated.

    My baby is 6 months old and throws up a bottle almost every night. He is teething very bad he has 5 teeth already. I recently ordered the two medicines yall have been talking about. Do you think this will help. He gags alot…always has the hiccups…I often hear his belly gurgling. I also read that teething increases their stomach acid so I’m just hoping this will help. Every night we just wait for him to vomit and sometimes it wakes him up from a dead sleep. He starts crying and minutes later he throws up about 3 xs. Any input you may have would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely Exhausted MoM!

    • Joe says:

      Kayla

      Glad to note that you have already ordered the 2 remedies I have advocated:
      Nat Phos 6x
      Nux Vomica 30c

      Please note however that the Nux V is NOT to be used unless he does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x which is my standard remedy for Baby GERD.

      You should discover that he will do so within a few minutes after the first dose when he will not gag and will give you the chance to sleep.

      Report his response in 24 hours and you will of course give a full tablet dissolved in milk or water after every feed.

      For the record I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD:

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x dose 1 tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. You will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.

      You will also take Arnica 30c which you will order in the Liquid Dilution as per instructions below. Please note that the Arnica is NOT for baby.
      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily and Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

    Dear Mr. De Livera,

    My son was born 11 weeks early. He is currently 4 months old but adjusted is only 6 weeks. He weighs 11 1/2 lbs. He is primarily breastfed (pumped in a bottle really). He was diagnosed with reflux while in hospital. He was prescribed Zantac. I was variable about giving it to him, and basically only administered when I noticed reflux symptoms cropping up. (admittedly not the right thing to do, but I hated giving him a med he didn’t like and which I had been told by the nurses wasn’t a real fix anyway)
    In an effort to get off the meds a few weeks ago, I found your remedy through google searches. I started it (though now realizing it wasn’t the current dosage you recommend) and saw some improvement, but then he developed a congestion so I stopped. After my Ped decided he wasn’t sick, but the congestion is likely from reflux, he upped the Zantac dose. The congestion did not go away, so after another dr. visit, the Zantac was maxed. Ped also prescribed a nebulizer treatment, and two other doctors indicated that they feel he has bronchiolitis. He has not had any fever, so no other treatment.
    My son is a ‘silent refluxer’. He rarely spits up and not much. He does show discomfort, chewing, gagging and bouts of pain, usually within an hour after eating. He also has apnea episodes and sometimes bradychardias. I do my best to keep him more upright most of the time.
    I plan to start your treatment as described above multiple times (so no need to repeat) but what I am concerned about is the congestion. It’s been two weeks. The nebulizer treatments might be helping, but it’s hard to tell yet (been 3 days). Is there anything you might recommend to help with that?
    Anything advice is welcome.
    Thanks

    • Joe says:

      Kir

      It is very likely that the ‘congestion’ you report is due to baby inhaling his reflux, into the lungs thereby causing his suspected Bronchitis.

      It is also very likely that my Nat Phos 6x therapy will stabilise both his Reflux and his Bronchitis.

      Suggest you start him off on the Nat Phos 6x ASAP giving a full tablet immediately after a feed dissolved in your milk or water.

      You will of course STOP ALL DRUGS.

      You will report his progress in 24 hours after the first dose.

    Hi, I found arnica extract is it the same as arnica 30 c?

  71. Gabrielle Beaudoin says:

    Dear Joe,
    I read you rarely hear fron mothers when their baby gets better, so here I am reporting about two months after I started giving my baby Nat Phos. He is now 3 1/2 months old and his reflux has improved tremendously. I now only give him one tablet, two times a day – morning and night, immediately after a feed. He still needs it, i have tried not giving it to him at all over a few days and he started sticking out his tongue again and having very bad breath. But he did not spit up!
    Thank you very much for your precious advice! 🙂
    Gabrielle

    • Joe says:

      Thank you for reporting the current status of your baby. I am glad to learn that he has improved and that you are already cutting down on the Nat Phos which is only to be used as necessary and then stopped.

      It will be good to know how your baby progress into childhood and I would appreciate if you report his progress from time to time.

      It is just that I have helped literally hundreds of babies with my therapy —“Joepathy” as the remedy I prescribe, Nat Phos 6x is my discovery and is not used by other homeopaths as they have not been taught that it is by far more effective in comparison to the standard remedies they are taught to prescribe in college.

      I am not qualified but have studied the same text books they have used and have developed my own therapy which differs from theirs. Mine works while their classical Homeopathic remedies usually do not.

      I am 85 years old and Homeopathy is my Hobby to which I am decicated and if you are interested in my therapy, you can read about it on my Website.

    hi joe was referred to your website by yourself from homopathoc forum. my baby is 3 weeks old and showing signs of silent reflux..no vomiting…and regular bowel movements ( up to 6 a day) signs im seeing are pain and crying when feeding and being burped..arching back..swallowing and some times gagging after feeds..fussiness and restless not sleeping much unless held..he is formula fed. I purchased nat phos 6x cell salt tablets 10 grams… my questions are do I start off with 1 full tablet? how much milk or water do I dissolve the tablet in? how many tablets in 24 hours? thanks for your help look forward to hearing from you

      I prefer not to be addressed as “Joe” except by my peers and close friends, as in my country Sri Lanka, there is a certain modicum of respect reserved for age.

        hello sir
        bany has had the 6 doses within 24 hours. things have definitely improved but not 100%. the feeds were pain free until about 7pm where he started showing 1 or 2 signs of the reflux but not all signs, first night feed he was an angel no pain during feed and slept 2 hours, 2nd night feed he showed all the reflux signs was clearly in pain, gave him his 4th NP dose, morning feed was same all signs there. do I carry on with NP until all signs have gone? I dissolved np in about 5 mls of milk didnt completely dissolve tho… am I doing something wrong. look forward to hearing from you. kirsty.

        • Joe says:

          “bany has had the 6 doses within 24 hours. things have definitely improved but not 100%”

          I believe that his digestive process has stabilized but it may take a few days before a 100% improvement is noticed.

          You will continue with the current therapy and report in 48 hours.

          • klouise says:

            dear sir.. My baby has started showing signs of the refkux again…fuss whe feeding and gagging..clearing his throat. please advice me what to do..his sti taking 1 nat phos aftet feeds. thank you.

            • Joe says:

              Can you get Nux Vomica 30c in pellets in your city?
              NV will reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x and will help baby to tide over his temporary problems with his digestion.

              The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

              Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
              Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
              Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
              Insert 3 drops of the remedy or 6 pellets into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
              Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

              You will give baby just 1 teaspoonful twice daily.

              Report progress in 48 hours.
              You will STOP the NV as soon as baby is OK.
              You will continue with the Nat P for as long as it is helping baby.
              Are you taking 2 tablets after every meal?

          • klouise says:

            I am in the Uk so im not sure I will check the site that I purchased the nat phos from. will I have to make up a new remedy everytime I have to give baby the teaspoon out of the bottle? or can I use it from thebottle again? I am not taking the nat phos as I an formula feeding. thank you again.

          • klouise says:

            its giving me the option to buy pillules, tablets, granules or drops. please advice me on which optoion I choose.thanks

            • Joe says:

              Choose the DROPS which are Ethanol or Alcohol.

              Please note that you will continue with the Nat Phos TABLETS for both baby and you. The Nux V is for temporary use in the Wet dose and you will give baby just one teaspoonful twice daily before a feed.

          • klouise says:

            Thank you! if im giving baby just a teaspoon fron the 500 ml bottle can I use again when giving second dose? or does bottle need to be discarded and not used again? is it necessary for me to take nat phos if baby is formula fed?

            • Joe says:

              You will use the whole bottle and this should last you over 3 months.
              You will however STOP the Nux V as soon as baby shows improvement in his reflux.

              You will take Nat Phos 6x as instructed. It is absolutely safe and is NOT a drug.

          • klouise says:

            should the bottle be stored in the fridge and should I shake it everytime I give the remedy? also could the grunting and pain during and after feeding be trapped wind? if so would nat phos and NV help with that? thanks again

            • Joe says:

              You do not have to store it in the refrigerator.
              You will observe Baby’s response and report it in 48 hours.
              You will NOT give the Nux Vomica for over a few days as it is only meant for temporary use.

          • klouise says:

            hey sir. Gave my baby the NV yesterday have seen a slight improvement..the symptons I am still seeing are.. pain during feeding and not burping as well as should…however this is not every feed! gave him 1 dose of nv this morning shall I Continue with the nv? I am still giving NP as usual. thank u.

            • Joe says:

              I hope you realize that you CANNOT expect your baby to be CURED with just ONE DOSE of Nux Vomica.

              I have prescribed NV to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x which will hopefully help to stabilize his Baby GERD in a few days.

          • klouise says:

            oh no of course not he has had 4 doses over 2 days now. Do I stop giving hom nv wgen I see 100% improvement? when his gerd is stablized will it more than likely return thanks

            • Joe says:

              You have NOT INDICATED his response after 4 doses of Nux Vomica.

              You must realize that this information is vital to enable me to advise you.

              You have made 11 posts so far, some of which are on irrelevant matters, and if you still wish to continue using my therapy for your baby, I shall expect you to be more PRECISE in your statements.

              You must understand that I am doing a service to suffering humanity free of charge and the least I can expect from a patient is a full record of the response, in this case your baby’s response, to my therapy.

              You give me the impression that you seem to start typing on your computer whenever you come near it but you fail to record the more pertinent facts of his case to enable me to advise you.

              Read the many accounts of mothers on my Website, whose babies I have saved from the poisonous drugs that were prescribed by their pediatricians and who are now well on their path to childhood with my therapy aka “Joepathy”.

          • klouise says:

            his response is better! during some feeds there is still discomfort and fussines during and after feeding, but this is not eery feed like it was before,and he is finding it hard to burp sometimes however there is nomore gagging, frequent hiccup,constant clearing throat. I would like to continue using your therapy as my baby has definitely got alot better since using it and I do not wish to give him the medication thay my doctor wants to prescribe him. thanks

            • Joe says:

              Your last post is what I expected from you to enable me to evaluate the patient’s response to enable me to advise you further.

              You can try reducing his intake of milk per feed but you can feed more often to enable him to stabilize his digestive system which in many babies is not fully developed and results in the distress that your own baby suffered till you started on my therapy.

              Glad to note that you prefer my therapy to that prescribed by your pediatrician who will invariably give the dangerous PPI drugs which have violent side effects, some of which affect the mental development of the child as occurred in one case whom I rescued but too late.

  73. klouise says:

    no problem I respect your wishes.. thank you that has answered most of my questions.. apart from how much milk do I dissolve the tablet in? thanks will report tomorrow

    dear sir! sorry its taken so long to get back to you myself and baby camr down with the flu. to update you I believe the reflux is pretty much non existent however he does seem to be suffering from quite alot of wind..

  75. Miranda says:

    My son was diagnosed with severe acid reflux at 2 weeks old. We had a x-ray done on him and it showed the barium coming back up so they prescribed my son 1/2 tablet of prevacid once a day he’s now 6 weeks old and there is no change he barely sleeps at night due to constant gagging/choking on his spit up from his relfux. I keep him upright an hour after each feeding. I am exclusively breastfeeding also. My question is do you think this will be beneficial for my son and should i consult his pedi before trying this remedy?

    • Joe says:

      Please STOP THE PREVACID as it is dangerous for your baby.
      The Barium will constipate him. Do not ever give it to him again as it proves NOTHING.

      “My question is do you think this will be beneficial for my son and should i consult his pedi before trying this remedy?”

      Please do not insult me by asking for my “permission” to consult your pediatrician to give Nat Phos 6x which he would never have heard of. It is NOT A DRUG and it will be safe to state that I have helped HUNDREDS of babies to overcome their Baby GERD which is not unusual in babies for a few weeks till their digestive system takes over.

      Read the many cases of babies I have SAVED from the dangerous PPI Drugs like Prevacid, Zantac Omeprazole, and many others.
      THEY HAVE SERIOUS SIDE EFFECTS ON ADULTS WHEN USED IN THE LONG TERM AND ARE FAR MORE DANGEROUS TO BABIES.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed to hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too.

    The remedy above has been working wonders for my 2 month old. Is it safe to mix his liquid vitamins (tri-vi-sol) with a little water and 1 Nat phos tablet?

    Hi Joe,
    I am a mother of a 4month old baby girl who is suffering from infant acid reflux.the symptoms appeared first time when she was 6weeks old just after her first vaccination.We tried giving her small feeds more frequently and it worked at that time but she seemed to drink less then what she should ultimately and we switched back to her full bottles. Second episode occurred when she was 3.5 months, when she was spitting up so much, that we rushed to emergency. After that we got prescribed with zentac half a tablet everyday.
    I am generally a bit hesitant to give allopathic medicines to my baby so we would only give her half a tab a day when she is showing GERD symptoms and spitting up curdy milk almost every feed. Now at the age of 17weeks she is again having an episode of acid reflux.She has reduced the amount of milk she drinks and very unsettled since 3days. Her previous episode lasted for7-10 days and got better with lots of burping and upright time.But to see her in pain after each feed is very painful for us too. Her sleep time is around 14-15 hrs a day which has not changed but she makes loud snoring like noise while sleeping after feed, which i believe is due to her acid reflux. She is not constipated but passing a lot of wind today which seems also painful for her tiny tummy 🙁 She is a formula fed baby and had her 4 month vaccination a week ago.
    Please help us regarding this issue and prescribe some natural medications.
    I was going through natural options to cure her acid reflux and i came across a post on baby-centre site.

      I do NOT recommend that a baby is vaccinated in the manner that is done today even before leaving hospital after birth and later in a few months after. The reason is the fact that a baby’s body is not able to cope with the chemicals and attenuated viruses that are used which will result in a reaction usually accompanied with fever which is suppressed with an analgesic at that tender age. The chances of a baby being exposed to any viral infection up to a year is virtually nil and it is best to vaccinate after the baby is at least a year old, preferably twice that age when the body is better able to cope.

      I prefer not to be addressed as “Joe” except by my peers and close friends, as in my country Sri Lanka, there is a certain modicum of respect reserved for age.

    • Joe says:

      I cannot advise you about the weight of a tablet of Nat Phos 6x as I have never had occasion to check the weight of one and do not have the possibility of doing so here in office.

      Since you have got NP 6x already you can give her 1/4 of a tablet and observe and report her response.

      The standard NP tablet which is internationally used is 4mm Ø and is 3mm in thickness. I prefer to give the minimum dose and prescribe half tablet and if this works all is well. Otherwise I prescribe a full tablet as NP is NOT a drug and can be used very safely by anyone including babies.

      I am concerned to read your statement:
      “can I also thicken my milk with formula / eg. Gaviscon”

      I am copying the report on Gaviscon from Wikipedia:

      “The formulation of Gaviscon varies by manufacturer. The three active ingredients in Reckitt Benckiser’s version are sodium alginate, a bicarbonate (either sodium or potassium in variants) and an antacid (calcium carbonate).[4][5] The GlaxoSmithKline variant lists only antacids as its active ingredients (aluminum hydroxide and either magnesium carbonate or magnesium trisilicate). Alginic acid and sodium bicarbonate are listed as inactive ingredients.[6][7]
      The combination of alginic acid and a bicarbonate forms a layer on the contents of the stomach, which prevents stomach acid from refluxing up into the esophagus.[8] If reflux does occur the protective barrier is the first to contact the esophageal mucosa, instead of gastric contents.[9]”

      DO NOT USE THIS DRUG TO ‘THICKEN YOUR MILK’ as this will only make your baby’s problem much worse.

      You will only use Nat Phos 6x as instructed.

      In the meanwhile you are advised to order it from Hylands whose products are accepted in Homeopathy.

    Hi Joe,

    My 4 week old has silent reflux and a poor digestive system. She does not actually vomit. Will I try nat ohos 6x on it’s own first. Do I give one full tablet after each feed or a half tablet. I am taking nat phos in liquid form twice a day. Is the liquid form a good thing for me to take. Any other recommendations. or advise.

    Thanks
    Miriam

      I noticed that you have addressed me by my given name, Joe. I do not permit being addressed by name on my website, as I only permit my peers and close friends to do so.

      Here in Sri Lanka where I live, we have a modicum of respect for age.

      I am 85.

      If you would like me to help your baby please repost your case.

    • Joe says:

      If you have already given baby Nat Phos 6x, you will know by now that it has helped her as NP works almost immediately after a feed to help stop the reflux. It is unusual for a baby at 4 weeks to show reflux and it is possible that this may be due to giving formula. I would recommend that you give her your breast milk as this is the Ultimate Food for a new born baby if you are not breast feeding her.

      You stated:
      “I am taking nat phos in liquid form twice a day. Is the liquid form a good thing for me to take”

      Please note that Nat Phos 6x is always in Tablet form. The higher potencies are in alcohol and are not to be used by you or baby.

      You can also take the NP 6x dose 2 tablets twice daily after food to reduce your weight and also to pass the effect to baby if you breast feed her.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed to hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. Start with half tablet but if the response is not as expected, you may increase to a full tablet but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

    I am writing to ask your advice for my almost 14 month old son. He weighs 27 lbs. He had reflux when he was born. We put him on Xantac, but that did not work. Then the dr prescribed a stronger ppi, but it made him constipated and I felt uneasy about giving it to him. I took him off the ppi and then took him to a D.O. that specializes in osteopathic manipulation. His spitting up disappeared from that visit on, but he still seemed sensitive to my breast milk. Eventually we discovered that he is especially sensitive to dairy. I eliminated it from my diet, periodically adding it back as advised by the pediatrician to see how he responds. When I eat dairy, he wakes even more frequently at night than usual and seems to be in a lot of pain. We have given him Hyland’s colic tablets off and on, but haven’t seen consistent results as far as his sleeping patterns. At 14 months, he still wakes 3-10 times a night. We had him tested for allergies at 11 months. He has no food allergies at this point. The ped and the allergist advised introducing dairy to him and back into my diet at 12 months. I have tried that, and he is waking more frequently, jerking with pain in his sleep, and the reflux suddenly seems to have returned, although he doesn’t always spit up. He spits up occasionally, but mostly, I just hear him reflux and then swallow it back down. I have read about your GERD remedy, but noted that most of the people with inquiries have newborns. Our son is older so I wondered if the dosing/procedure would be different. He is our third baby with reflux. We tried to sleep train our first and I feel that caused emotional harm to her. Our third baby (our second one with reflux) suffered waking at each sleep cycle until 9 months of age when we started her on prevacid. She was on it for 9 months and then we weaned her when it became controversial. She was fine without it then, but never has become a good sleeper. I’m worried about this baby never learning to sleep well. We have tried so many solutions and we are so tired! Please help! One thing I feel we have done correctly, my gut told me not to immunize him. He has yet to be immunized at 14 months. Thank you!

    • Joe says:

      It seems a shame that physicians both homeopathic and allopathic refuse to use the safest and most effective remedy (not to be confused with a drug), Nat Phos 6x. This is a Biochemic Cell Salt which works in some miraculous manner to accelerate the digestion of food and propels it down the gut, thereby relieving the patient of GERD.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed to hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too. Your 14 month old baby can be given a full tablet of Nat Phos 6x which you can buy from the nearest Homeopathic pharmacy if you live in India.

  86. Sara says:

    My daughter was perfect the first weeks of life and suddenly my colsitrum turned to milk and the acid reflux began. I am off gluten, and dairy. I tried your Nat. phos. Therapy after about 6 days it stopped working. And she started throwing up the remedy. I waited another week and her reflux was moderate …. This morning I gave her the Nat. Phos and it seemed to make situation worse. What would you suggest. She is six weeks on Friday. She tends to go to the bathroom ever 4-6 days which I think might be related because when I give her a bottle of my pumped colsitrum she is good for two days, and has a bowel movement couple hours later.

    • Joe says:

      Glad to note that you have read my therapy for Baby GERD and that you have already given your 6 week old baby Nat Phos 6x which helped her initially but does not do so today. I presume that the NP you used was the tablet as the Liquid is not the Biochemic Cell Salt. Please confirm.

      I was interested to learn from your report that when your Colostrum (not Colsitrum) turned to milk, that your baby reacted with her current Reflux. This is unusual.

      Let us start by giving her half tablet before and the balance after a feed and observe her response. Tablet to be dissolved in milk.

      Order Nux Vomica 30c in the standard pellets which you may have to use if the Nat Phos therapy does not help. Please note that you are not to give the Nux V to baby till I instruct you to do so.

    I have tried the nat phos. In both directed ways. It worked initially then suddenly stopped. I started giving directly after feeding one pellet because half did not work. After three days it seemed to stop working, so I tried half before and half after feedings and she seemed more agitated. She spit it up and has wet burps that are acidy (she makes a face of disgust). Throwing her body all around until it finally stops. I’m using the Nat. phos. Hylands pellets. Would the num vomica 30c help the situation and should it be combined with Nat. Phos.? Also I’m assuming the Boiron – Nux Vomica 30c is what I should order?

    Thanks for your help.

    • Joe says:

      Add the Nux Vomica 30c and if you cannot get the liquid dilution you can use the pellets.
      You will use 6 pellets in a bottle of spring water and give her a teaspoonful twice daily.

    I added the Nux. Vomica on Friday and it has not improved her reflux in fact I think it’s made a bit worse could there be another remedy that would work better.

    I read about dioscorea villosa could this remedy possibly help my daughter. What are your thoughts?

    From a caring mom to a helpful man.

    • Joe says:

      I am copying a post I made to another mother whose baby was proving difficult with her GERD and not responding to my default therapy of Nat Phos 6x + Nus Vomica 30c

      “Your Baby presents a very difficult case to treat and we will have to use a few remedies to observe which will help her to overcome her Baby GERD. The problem you may have however is that they may not be available in the UAE.

      Let us start with Aethusa Cynapium 6 which is a remedy that will help her to overcome any Lactose intolerance.
      You will also get Robinia Pseudacacia 6 which is a remedy that will reduce the secretion of acid.

      You will advise me as soon as you get these remedies”

  90. Sara says:

    Sir,

    I have one question are there any adverse reactions to using these remedies. I have not experienced any adverse reactions from Homeopathic remedies but when it comes to such a small child I just need to ask.

    • Joe says:

      Have you observed any adverse reactions on your own baby?

      No adverse reactions have been reported by mothers who used my Nat Phos 6x therapy for their babies. Some have reported like you that the NP did not work alone and I have had in a few cases to supplement it with other remedies.

      Nat Phos 6x is NOT a drug. It is a Biochemic Cell Salt. Look it up on Google. The PPI drugs that are prescribed by doctors cause more damage to their patient than help cure them. Read the pathetic cases of mothers who have dosed their children for years on PPI drugs and the results they wreaked on them on my website.

      You have not reported your baby’s current response to my therapy and I shall be interested to learn what remedies you are giving and baby’s response.

  91. Candice says:

    Dear Dr. De Livera,

    I have spent a long time reading your website and many of the responses on this page, and have purchased Nas Phos 6x. I will start my so on it today, and will report back soon. Here is our background:

    My son is ten months old, and has silent reflux that is giving him sleep apnea and trouble breathing. He is on an oxygen tank 24/7. After testing for two weeks to find out the cause of his low oxygen and sleep apnea, doctors concluded that he has silent reflux. They prescribed him Prevacid. I know the dangers of PPI’s and will not give him this medication. So I started Googling natural remedies for acid reflux, and found your remedy. I’m very hopeful that this will work. Thanks for dedicating your time to helping babies. We will report back soon.

    Sincerely,
    Candice

    • Joe says:

      “My son is ten months old, and has silent reflux that is giving him sleep apnea and trouble breathing. He is on an oxygen tank 24/7.”

      I would like to have more data on the reason for your son to be on Oxygen, 24/7. It is likely that his sleep Apnea is due to his reflux and his natural reflex wakes him up to prevent choking. This is an interesting condition and I shall be very interested to learn of his response in the next 48 hours after the Nat Phos 6x stabilises his reflux.

      You are very fortunate that you located my website and you may like to read of the many mothers whose babes I have been helping to overcome their Reflux and Baby GERD.

      • Candice says:

        Hi Dr. De Livera,

        I think you are correct about the cause of the apnea. We did a sleep study last week at the hospital, and when not on oxygen, he stopped breathing about 50 times. With oxygen, however, he was fine. I never would have guessed acid reflux, but that is their first diagnosis.

        I know it hasn’t been 48 hours yet, but I wanted to ask a question to make sure I’m doing this correctly. This is very important to me, so I don’t want to make a mistake. I have a medical condition called IGT that doesn’t allow me to make enough breast milk for my son. I was devastated when I was diagnosed 8 months ago. So we have to use formula. When administering the Nat Phos 6x, should it be in a bottle with the formula during a regular feeding, or given after the feeding in a separate serving of formula? Thanks for taking the time to read this. I don’t want to assume either way, and figured I would ask the expert.

        Thank you again for your time.

        Sincerely,

        Candice

        • Joe says:

          I have often had occasion to reassure parents that Nat Phos 6x is NOT a drug. It is a Biochemic Cell Salt which you can read about on the web. It works by an amazing chemical process involving the cells in the blood and is absolutely safe in use for both babies and adults. You do not have to be precise in how you give him the NP and you can dilute it in his formula as he may not like to take it dissolved in water.

          You have however not confirmed that you have given it to him and that the NP has made some difference in his “Sleep Apnea” but reading between the lines, I believe that I have diagnosed that the root cause of his problem is due to Acid Reflux and I shall await your next post confirming that he is OK without the O2. It is obvious that he could not be tethered to the end of an Oxygen tank for the rest of his life.

          I shall be interested to have more data on his case with details of when and how he was diagnosed with sleep apnea and ordered to be hooked on to an O2 tank and how both baby and you the parents coped with this addition to his life. If you have any photographs of baby tethered to the tank, I would like to have them but you may have to send them to me by email on:

          joedelivera@gmail.com

          As for your IGT you may like to know that Arnica 6c in the Wet dose taken thrice daily will stimulate secretion of breast milk and many mothers have confirmed that this is the answer to the problem. In your case there is a possibility that this may not work if you have not breast fed baby for over a few weeks but it is still worth a try.

  92. Candice says:

    Hi Dr. De Livera,

    It has been 48 hours since we started our son on Nat Phos 6x. It is very difficult to tell if there has been any improvement, since he has silent reflux – meaning he doesn’t spit up. However, he is sleeping a lot better as of lastnight. I’m hoping it is a result of the Nat Phos 6x. Usually he tosses and turns every night and cries from pain, but he slept through the night lastnight. So this is a good sign.

    That being said, the only way to tell for sure if this is working is to hook him up to an oxygen monitor. Our insurance company is going to send us one next week, and at that time we will be able to monitor his oxygen levels both during the day and at night. So until we get the oxygen monitor next week, is it alright to continue the Nat Phos 6x, 1 tablet with every bottle, 6 times a day?

    If this works, I’ll definitely send more details and photos. It looks promising so far.

    As for the arnica 6c in the wet dose, is this safe to use during pregnancy? I am 2 months pregnant with our second baby.

    Sincerely,

    Candice

    • Joe says:

      You are in a better position than I am to judge whether or not my diagnosis is correct. From your latest report it can be presumed that there is a distinct improvement in his response and this therapy with Nat Phos 6x can be continued very safely as it is not a drug. You should use the added assistance provided by your insurers who seem to me, to be interested in your baby’s case. I would appreciate if you will keep me advised of his progress from time to time.

      Since you are 2 months pregnant, I do not think that you need continue with the Arnica unless you feel tired or need some pep up. In any case Arnica will not harm your baby as you are taking a very minuscule dose by using 3 drops Arnica 30c in 500ml water and you take just a teaspoonful daily.

    Dear Sir,

    My son is 12 months old and suffers from acid reflux and has been on Prevacid since he was 4 months. We are now trying to wean him off the medication with only half his normal dose. It’s now been 2 weeks at this dose and he’s starting to show symptoms of hiccuping, coughing at night, wet burps and grabbing at his chest and throat. He is also now getting a diaper rash every day. I’m assuming it all has to do with the acidity levels going up. I recently read about Nat Phos 6x and came across your site. I’d like to try your remedy and wish I had known about it months ago because I can see how dependent he has become on the Prevacid. How should I proceed? My son is also still nursing. Can I take the Nat Phos 6x and have it passed through my milk?

    Thank you.

    • Joe says:

      You can give him Nat Phos 6x after every feed not to exceed 6 tablets daily as per instructions below:

        Thank you. I ended up giving him a full tablet after meals. He slept better last night but still coughed during the night. He is still grabbing at his throat and chest today but the diaper rash isn’t as bad. Overall there seems to be improvement. I will keep giving him the full tablet and I will continue taking 2 tablets after my meals. I’ll let you know if there are any changes. Thank you again.

        • Joe says:

          Glad to learn that your son responded to my therapy after many months of being given the dangerous PPI drug Prevacid which would have affected his growth. Unfortunately the medical profession refuses to accept this simple Homeopathic remedy Nat Phos 6x which is NOT a drug and which is a Biochemic Cell Salt which is absolutely safe in use. You will discover in a few days that he does not need the assistance of this remedy as his digestive system is helped to stabilize on its own.

          If his nappy rash continues to be a problem please feel free to ask for the remedy to treat it.

          • akabrien says:

            An update: my son is now putting his hand in his mouth and almost gagging like he’s trying to scratch his throat. He also cries like he is in pain. He does this sometimes while he is eating solid food and also in his car seat. I am concerned about this. We had him on the medication because there was so much acid erosion that he was gagging and choking in his sleep. He has silent reflux so it just comes up into his throat and goes back down. He does not spit up. Is there something in addition to nat phos 6x that I should give him? Thank you.

            • Joe says:

              You can add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose which you can make by inserting 6 pellets of the remedy into a 500ml bottle of spring water. You will give him a dose which is a teaspoonful twice daily between feeds.

  94. akabrien says:

    Thank you. How many days should he be on each?

    • Joe says:

      You have not indicated Baby’s response to my therapy.
      Has his GERD status improved or not?

      You consulted me 5 days ago and indicated that your 12 month old has been on Prevacid for 8 months.
      I prescribed Nat Phos 6x and added Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose and you now inquire for how long you should give these remedies.

      You will give them to him as long as he needs it. NP is NOT a drug like Prevacid that has dangerous side effects which you can read by doing a search for “The danger of PPI Drugs”.

      Nat Phos 6x is a Biochemic Cell Salt and can be given very safely till his digestive system takes over especially after giving him solids.

      You will stop the Nux Vomica as soon as you see any improvement in his GERD status.

      • akabrien says:

        I’m not sure if anything is better. He has had a fever over the last day so I have not tried the Nux Vomica yet. He is still coughing, putting his hand in his throat, waking up at night and today his wet burps are back. This all started before the fever. There is something called acid rebound that happens if someone is taken off a PPI so I believe that may be happening. He is also pulling on both ears which could be ear infection or teething but acid reflux can also cause ear problems. I am continuing the Nat Phos 6x for now. Thank you for letting me know how long to use both.

        • akabrien says:

          He is doing much better. I haven’t seen any reflux symptoms in a few days. Thank you!

          • Joe says:

            Thank you for confirming that your Baby’s GERD is now finally stabilized and hopefully cured.

            I referred back to your first post when you consulted me on April 25 and informed me that you had been giving him Prevacid which you must know is a PPI drug which has been accepted as having dangerous side effects for adults and more so for babies. But the medical profession prefers to poison their unsuspecting patients instead of using my therapy which is based on Sodium Phosphate and acts by accelerating the passage of food down the gut. This action is different to the PPI drugs which inhibit the production and release of acid HCl into the stomach and create side effects which are dangerous and long lasting especially to babies. You state that you gave Baby Prevacid for the last 8 months and the side effects will manifest themselves in the future.

            You now have the strength of conviction to promote my therapy which is not based on the classical therapy you will be prescribed by other Homeopaths. I have ‘discovered’ Nat Phos and have identified it as the safest and the most effective remedy to treat GERD in both adults and babies.

            It is my hope that you will promote this simple therapy to your friends and tell them how your baby suffered with you and is now CURED.

            I would appreciate if you will please state your Baby’s case in your own words in a post which I shall publish in the “Articles” chapter on my website to prove that my Joepathy works in some wondrous ways.

      I believe that you misunderstood my last post to you where I requested you to record in your own words your Baby’s case where he was solely dependent on drugs to treat his GERD and when you started on my therapy with Nat Phos 6x, he turned a new page in his life and was OK almost immediately.

      I did NOT request you to STOP the Nat Phos as he will need it for some more time in the future to help digest his feed. Feel free to report his progress from time to time to enable me to advise you.

    Thank you for the clarification. I will continue the same doseage and check in with you again. Yes I am more than happy to give a testimonial. It has been working and others should know about it.

    • Joe says:

      Glad to note that your baby is OK today.
      A statement from the mother on my website is far better that a quote of how a baby suffering from chronic GERD was helped by “Joepathy”

      • akabrien says:

        My son is 13 months old and is Prevacid free thanks to Mr. De Livera’s therapy “Joepathy”. My son was first diagnosed with “silent” acid reflux around 6 weeks old. He began gagging in his sleep so we took him to the Children’s ER. We were told to elevate his crib and hold him upright for 30 minutes after nursing. He continued to gag in his sleep and breathing problems ensued. The second ER trip, they gave me diet restrictions and provided us with a “danny sling” to keep our son more upright during sleep. A few days later my son was screaming in pain for hours and the only thing that would console him was breastmilk but each time I nursed him, he would be screaming again 30 minutes later. Again, we went to the ER and this time they had us stay for more testing which confirmed the reflux. My son was given Zantac which seemed to help for a while then his symptoms returned. We tried chiropractic and acupuncture but it didn’t help. We were severely sleep deprived and desperate by the time we saw a pediatric GI specialist who recommended Prevacid which he began using at 4 months old. We tried weaning him from Prevacid around 9 months with no success. At 12 months, we were determined to have him off of it. We began this by giving him half his normal dose. He did well for 2 weeks, then he began showing reflux symptoms again. This is when I consulted Mr. De Livera for his therapy. We started the Nat Phos 6x and I stopped the Prevacid. He did well the first couple days and then he seemed to still be suffering from reflux symptoms. I also believe he was having acid rebound which can happen when stopping the PPI medication. I continued Mr. De Livera’s therapy and in less than two weeks my son’s reflux symptoms were gone. It’s been almost a month and he is still symptom free. Thank God! We are very grateful for Mr. De Livera’s help. I only wish I had known about this therapy from the beginning. It works and anyone who’s had a child with reflux needs to know about it!

    My 8 month old son was diagnosed with reflux at an early age. We had been managing it with zantac and I have been on an elimination diet (dairy, soy eggs, wheat and beef) since he was 5 weeks. He was doing great until 4.5 months and since then he hasn’t stopped being sick. He has had bronchiolitis, pneumonia, multiple ear infections, huge coughing fits, difficulty nursing, decreased appetite and a chronic wheeze. My pediatrician keeps disregarding his reflux as the cause when I suggest it. This past week I decided I needed to see someone else so I saw a pedi GI who wants to put him straight on to nexium and have a upper GI barium swallow ASAP. Next I saw a holistic dr who believes he needs allergy testing and that he has lots of food allergies/ sensitivities causing all of this. Oh and he has yet another ear infection now ( antibiotics again..ugh!!) I just want to get the reflux under control now so I can figure out the allergies next month. I would like to use the nat phos. I have read how you have prescribed it but I was curious how long I should be giving the full pill after each feeding and how long he will be taking the nat phos? Also I started it yesterday and I was wondering if it had any interaction with the antibiotics? Also they seem to melt right away when I take them. Can I give the pill directly to him or does I have to be melted in the milk first? Thanks for your help!!

    • Joe says:

      It breaks my heart to read the case records of babies like your 8 month old son who presented a simple case of Baby GERD which could and SHOULD have been treated with my default therapy using Nat Phos 6x Biochemic Cell Salt, which would have settled the problem initially when he was just 5 weeks old. I just shudder to think of the untold damage done to his tiny body during the past 6 months and can visualize the trauma of both you parents who had no alternative other than to follow the therapy prescribed by the pediatricians who had been schooled to only prescribe the dangerous PPI drugs like Nexium. This drug and all others of the PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) group should be BANNED from the Pharmacopea but BIG PHARMA will ensure that voices like mine are stifled as they depend on the sales of this group of drugs even though the FDA has warned the public that they are not for use over a long period.

      The many serious ailments you listed:
      “He has had bronchiolitis, pneumonia, multiple ear infections, huge coughing fits, difficulty nursing, decreased appetite and a chronic wheeze.” are only part of the surface damage done to him and your baby will pay the price for the after effects of these drugs in later life.

      You have read my therapy aka “Joepathy” for Baby GERD and all you have to do is to follow it precisely as prescribed.

      You will have to use your discretion in stopping the antibiotics which may be essential to ensure that his current infections are stabilized and use the Nat Phos 6x therapy starting with half tablet before and half after a feed preferably mixed in milk or water.

      You will discover that in just 24 hours he will be OK.

      You will report progress in 48 hours.

  98. Sarah says:

    Reporting back on my sons progress. He seems to be doing ok. I stopped the zantac Sunday and have been following the 1/2 tab before and then1/2 after feedings. Today he seems to have a little cough and a very runny nose with congestion. He also spit up today which he hasn’t done in a very long time. He is eating well and it does seems to be helping a bit. Any suggestions are welcomed. Thanks

    • Joe says:

      Continue the therapy which you state has helped him.
      It is possible that he has caught a cold which can cause the present problems.

  99. Elda says:

    Good morning, I have a premature baby born at 28 weeks. He is now 3 months and 2 weeks adjusted. My son has reflux. He spits up everytime after every feed and when lays down a little after. He drinks 2.5oz of formula every 3 hours. He takes zantac for the reflux. Please help me I feel horrible for him. Justbso you are aware he is also on caffeine for apnea.

    • Joe says:

      I have helped 2 cases of preemies whose mothers were desperate for a Homeopathic remedy to replace the standard PPI drug like Zantac prescribed for your baby. The remedy I prescribed was Nat Phos 6x and I hope that it will also help your baby to overcome his reflux. Nat Phos is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is not a drug like Zantac which I presume was effective when it was first prescribed but lost its ability to help his reflux in a few days when presumably your paediatrician increased the dose, which made a bad situation worse.

      I note that you refer to feeding him formula and this seems a pity as a baby especially a Preemie, is best fed Breast Milk. If you are unable to do so due to low supply, you can increase it with Arnica 6c in the Wet dose on which I shall give you more information if you would like me to do so.

      I also note that he suffers from Apnea for which you are already giving him Caffeine. Did you mean the Homeopathic product or the drug?

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed to hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. Start with half tablet but if the response is not as expected, you may increase to a full tablet but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      Please note that I live in Sri Lanka where it is now nighttime.

  100. Elda says:

    Thank you. I breastfed my son for the first 2.5 months and my supply has gone away. If you can please give some advise on how to produce more milk I would really appreciate it. He is on caffeine the drug precribed by doctor. I will go agead and buy the nat phos and get started for his reflux and report. Thank you.

    • Joe says:

      I canot understand how Caffeine can possibly help your baby who is a Preemie and the reason why your pediatrician prescribed it for him. You must know that Caffeine is accepted as the antidote to Homeopathic remedies and unless there is a valid reason for prescribing it for what you stated was Apnea, which as far as I know is unknown in babies, I would prefer that you stop it as it may antidote the action of the Nat Phos 6x which I have prescribed.

      I have prescribed Arnica 6c in the Wet dose to stimulate the mother to lactate and it has worked in many cases. In your case it will depend on the time you have not breastfed baby but is is indeed worth trying to observe if this will help.

      You will get the Liquid Dilution in Alcohol of Arnica 6c and insert just 3 drops into a 500ml bottle of Spring water and you will take a teaspoonful thrice daily. If you cannot get the Alcohol product you may use the standard pellets till you do get it when you will use 6 pellets in a bottle of water.

      Where do you live?

  101. Elda says:

    I am in the United States. Per Dr. He is prescribed caffeine citrate 1.2ml for prematurity apnea. Ita suppose to keep him up and not fall into deep sleep. Is this going to be a problem with the nat phos. If yes then I will start the nat phos on Monday when i leave his Dr. Appt.

    • Joe says:

      Did your baby show signs of Sleep Apnea to warrant prescribing Caffeine Citrate?
      Has it helped baby initially and how is the response now?

      How old was he when this drug was started and how old is he today.

      You can give the Nat Phos 6x in spite of the drug and report response.

  102. Elda says:

    He was born on 3/15/14 only 28 weeks gestation and weighed 2lbs. He is now 3 months old and weighs 6lbs. His original due date was suppose to be 6/5/14 so its like if he is only 3 weeks old. Yes he had lots of bradycardia and apnea when he was in the hospital. When he left hospital on 5/11/14 he was sent home on an apnea monitor to record any episodes and the caffeine. We have a dr appt this coming week to see how he is doing and possibly remove the caffeine.

    Regarding the nat phos, is it ok to place it under tongue and let it dissolve?

  103. RINA says:

    My 9 week old bottle fed son has reflux. He has been on Zantac for about a month now until I found you can help it without medication. The Zantac did help a lot with feeding however his sleep at night and during the day has not improved. I have purchased Nat Phos 6x(pill) & Nux Vomica 30c (pill). I started to give him the Nat Phos 6x dissolved in 1 tsp of water and use a syringe and give to him directly after the feeding however it seemed like the spitting up, which has been under control lately, got worse when i started him on the nat phos. Just need some direction at this point. How do i administer the Nat Phos 6x & Nux Vomica 30c and how frequently? Also, should I continue giving him the Zantac? How long should he be on this regimen? Thank you.

    • Joe says:

      I am glad to note that you have read the therapy I prescribe for Baby GERD or Reflux with Nat Phos 6x. This remedy is absolutely safe for use for Babies and Adults but I would not recommend that you use Nux Vomica 30c as this is a remedy which may only be used if it is essential and under supervision. It is not indicated for your baby right now till we observe his response for 48 hours after giving him the Nat Phos 6x which you will give dissolved in milk or water. You start with half tablet for a dose after every feed and if baby responds OK you will continue but if he does not, you will give him half before a feed. Some mothers have given a full tablet of Nat Phos dissolved in the milk but some babies have rejected the milk due to the taste difference.

      You will STOP the Zantac which is a PPI drug which causes severe side effects in adults and the effect on babies is best left unsaid. I am indeed very surprised that doctors will prescribe these drugs knowing fully well that they do cause these side effects which you can read about by doing a search on Google for “Side effects of PPI Drugs”.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed to hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too.

      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      Where do you live?

    • RINA says:

      I apologize I forgot to add this to the original post. since giving him that NP he has been way crankier than he has been as if the reflux is the way it was before he was put on Zantac. Also, when he lets a burp go it seems to be causing him pain which didn’t happen before trying NP. I am really concerned that I have messed everything up and not really sure what to do at this point.

      • RINA says:

        sorry again I didn’t see you had responded to my first comment. For certain reasons he does not get breast milk but formula. so how would I change it to make it work for us? I live in California. We burp him very often as he has problems with trapped gas and doesn’t like to get the burp out.

        • Joe says:

          Baby’s response is not unusual if you have been giving him Zantac for some time and more especially if you gave him just half tablet of Nat Phos 6x. The stoppage of this dangerous drug Zantac has made some babies to react but he should normally stabilise within 12 hours or 3 feeds when the NP takes effect. Give him half tablet before and half after a feed and report his progress.

          It is also possible that the Formula you are giving him is difficult for his stomach to digest but let us continue with it for a few days and then evaluate if you should change it.

          Please remember that Nat Phos 6x is NOT a drug like Zantac. It is a Biochemic Cell Salt which works in an amazing manner to stimulate Peristalsis which then inhibits the problems with Reflux caused by excess HCl or Hydrochloric Acid.

  104. RINA says:

    I actually haven’t stopped giving him the Zantac quite yet, as I was waiting to see how to proceed with giving him the NP first. Since he was showing weird symptoms when I gave him the NP i stopped completely as I was confused on what/how I should be giving it to him.

    The formula he is on now is the best that worked for him, we had to switch a couple of times.

    I hate to ask you again, however I just want to make sure I do this right so I don’t screw up my son any more than he already is. Before you said to only give him half a tablet right after feeding and now you say to give half before and half after? Also, how much water do I use to dilute half a pill with? Another thing I saw in the blog is that someone said they used boiled water..does it matter what kind of water I use? Or should I use some of the formula to dissolve it? Thank you and sorry to ask so many questions I just want to make sure I am doing it correctly as his reflux is really getting to us.

  105. RINA says:

    Don’t mean to bother you, however I would really love to get my son off the Zantac as soon as we can. Just found out that the medication might be the reason why my son won’t sleep at night. But I really don’t want to take him of the medication and onto the NP without knowing how to administer it to him properly. Please see the pervious post for the questions. Thank you for all your help on this. It is greatly appreciated.

    • Joe says:

      I can see that you cannot make up your mind about using the therapy I have prescribed to literally hundreds of babies who were on Zantac and other more powerful PPI drugs which are accepted as dangerous for adults and far more dangerous for babies. PPI drugs have never worked in the long term to help Reflux in babies and you can read the accounts of hundreds of mothers on my website whose babies I have saved from agony with my Nat Phos 6x therapy.

      I shall copy my therapy again and it is up to you the parents to use it as prescribed or to reject it as you seem to have done up to now.

      If and when you decide to use my therapy and STOPPED the Zantac, you may post your next question to me.

    Thank you for your response. We have decided to go on with your therapy and have now stopped the Zantac completely. These were my questions to make sure I am giving it to my son correctly.

    • Joe says:

      Glad to have your confirmation that you have STOPPED Zantac.

      Please be informed that Nat Phos 6x is NOT a drug. It is a Biochemic Cell Salt.
      Visit:
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biochemic_tissue_salt

      You may start with Half tablet. If it does not help baby you can increase to a full tablet as instructed.

      You boil water from the mains as it is chlorinated and chlorine instantly antidotes all Homeopathic remedies.

      I note that your baby is formula fed.
      Have you not breast fed him?

      Report progress in 24 hours.

  107. RINA says:

    For medical reasons I could not breastfeed him. House much water do I dissolved half a tablet in to give to my son?

    • Joe says:

      You are fortunate that even at my advanced age of 85, I do still have the patience to respond to inane questions such as yours, on how much water you should use to dissolve half a tablet of Nat Phos.

      Surely you must know that you cannot dissolve a tiny tablet in a whole glass of water when just a teaspoonful will do.

  108. RINA says:

    So sorry didn’t mean to ask stupid questions, I just want to make sure I do everything correctly the first time as I really want to help my son and our sanity. I really appreciate all our help. I will report what happens after 24 hours. Thank you.

  109. RINA says:

    update – So we have been giving our son 1/2 tablet immediately after each feeding however I am a bit concerned. We burp him really good and make sure we get everything out before we give him the dosage and then when we give him the dose he gets really crabby and then just spits up what seems to be a lot and probably most or all of the NP dose we just gave him. He seems to only do this when we give him the dose. Also, he has been passing a lot of gas when given the dose as well, enough to really notice. Not really sure what to do from here, please let me know how to proceed. Thank you for your guidance.

    • Joe says:

      I note that you are giving him just HALF tablet of Nat Phos 6x but that it does not help.
      The simple solution to this problem is to DOUBLE the dosage and give the balance half before a feed when you will discover that all is well.

      Looking back on my conversation with you, I note that I have prescribed half tablet before and half tablet after every feed.

      Any reason why you are giving him just HALF tablet today?

  110. RINA says:

    You told me in one section to do half after and in another to do half before and half after, I asked you about which one I should do and never got an answer so I thought I would start with the lower dose and see how it goes.. I can try the other one and see if it helps. The spit up was different than the reflux spit up he had before and he only has it when I give him the NP. I saw in a different post on here who had the same problem that they could put the dose in the bottle, is that an option? Would the NP cause gas? It has been pretty servere since giving the doses.

    • Joe says:

      I GIVE UP.

      You seem to specialize in asking questions but you do not carry out my instructions as contained in my replies to you which you will note from our conversations have continued almost daily since July 8 when you first consulted me.

      I feel that it is time for you to consult another physician as I am wasting far too much of my time in trying to help your baby.

  111. RINA says:

    I am sorry you feel that way. I have done everything you have told me to up to this point, it is hard when you tell someone to do two different things and don’t clarify which one is correct route to take. I also ask a lot of questions because they are simply never addressed the first time they are asked (possible side effects or something isn’t working). I understand that you are a highly intelligent man and don’t like to deal with what seems to you a waste of your time, however I like to think of myself a pretty smart person but when you are delusional due to months of lack of sleep and a crying baby day in and out things get a little foggy sometimes and you just want to make sure you are doing everything right for you and your child. The thought of something else effecting your baby that they can’t communicate back with you is just not something I want to mess with.

    Now I am stuck since I have been giving my child something other than medication that I don’t know how to administer and don’t know another physician who would be able to help me. I want to say thank you for the time you have given me (that I have apparently wasted) and the questions you have answered or not answered up to this point. THANK YOU.

    • Joe says:

      Your daughter’s case is very rare indeed and I can see that you have done your very best for her although you had not mentioned the problem with WAGR up to today.

      I have never treated a patient with this problem but you can give her my default therapy for GERD and report her response in a week.

      You can increase the Arnica to 3 doses daily to enable this remedy to cleanse her blood of any debris that may be blocking her circulatory system.

  112. Amna says:

    Hi,

    I have two month old twins. Both of them have acid reflux. Their dr prescribed Zantac for them, which I am very reluctant to give them. When I came across your remedy of Nat Phos 6x . I immediately decided to try it. I started with one tablet after every feeding for one day. Next day I reduced the amount to half tablet and I could see the results, though they still have reflux but they are not as uncomfortable as they were before. . Both of them are less fussy after couple of doses. It’s been 5-6 day me giving them 1/2 tablet after every feed. Initially I was giving them 7 times a day. Yesterday I started giving them the med after every other feed reducing it to 4 times a day ,but they were again very fussy and uncomfortable .
    So today I gave them six times a day. And they are getting better again.
    Please advice for how long should I give them the medicine. And what dose? I really appreciate your help.

    • Joe says:

      Thank you for your post which justifies the time and effort I expended in first establishing ny Website in 2011 and in maintaining it as I do today, even though I am 85 years of age.

      Nat Phos 6x is NOT a drug. It is a “Biochemic Cell Salt” and is absolutely safe in use both for babies and adults. You are requested to check this term in Google. You may safely give each baby a full tablet per feed for as long as you feel that it is helping and I note that you are already doing so.

      Zantac has been accepted as having serious side effects and you can do a search under “The danger of PPI Drugs”.

      Please do a service to other mothers whose babies suffer in the same manner and SPREAD THE GOOD NEWS.

  113. Amna says:

    Thanks for the reply. I understand that it does not have side effects and is considered safe but my only concern was that my babies don’t get dependent on Nat Phos 6x.

    Thanks and regards,

    • Joe says:

      I do doubt that your babies will ever get ‘hooked’ on Nat Phos 6x. It is NOT addictive and is NOT a drug as I have already informed you.

      You informed me that you have already, within a few days, tried to reduce the dosage but decided to increase it to a full tablet when you discovered that they were uncomfortable with just half tablet.

      You as the mother will be able to judge when you need to taper out the dosage and I hope you have followed my advice and read up on what a Biochemic Cell Salt is all about.

  115. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Look into my web page; SB PAUL RODRIGUEZ

    Hello Doctor,
    My son is 19 weeks old 5kg when weighed last week. He has reflux since he was about 1 month old & used to spit the entire bottle milk and always refused breast feed. It improved with the use of milk thickener for about a month & a half that he completely stopped spitting up and the feeding was going well for some days. Then he caught cold & a bit of throat infection by the end of June and he again started refusing feeds. The pedeatricians have been suggesting to play with the quantity of milk thickener to see the effect on his feeding. Although he doesn’t spit now, only a little bit sometimes but he is getting more & more uncomfortable every day since last 8-10 days. Before that he was quite playful and happy for longer time but now he is totally a different baby(very grumpy all the time). 2 days back I found this remedy of Nat Phos and I started giving him since yesterday with every feed. He has been feeding better but still spitting up a bit and too uncomfortable all the time. I am also taking 2 pills after meals. Should I wait for few more days with the same dosage or do I need to give him some additional medicine? Kindly suggest. Thanks in advance.

    • Joe says:

      You have already read and are using my default therapy with Nat Phos 6x for your baby. You should observe that he will be OK in a day or so and you will continue to give the Nat Phos 6x which is NOT a drug, very safely.

      Report progress in a few days.

      For the record I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed to hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy that has proved to be very effective for Baby GERD is:

      Nat Phos 6x tablet dissolved in milk given immediately after a feed. Start with half tablet but if the response is not as expected, you may increase to a full tablet but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

  117. Smriti says:

    Hi again,
    Thanks a lot for replying & helping me. There is a lot of improvement in my baby by tonight. He slept without crying. Was fussy during day but had all his feeds throughout the day.
    I had started giving him 1 full tab by mistake instead of 1/2 . from tomorrow I guess I can start giving 1/2 of it. I also forgot to mention in my previous post that I am still adding thickener to his formula milk. Can I stop adding it now or is it ok to continue it? He is still giving wet burps and hicupps but hope it will also come down soon. I will keep reporting you his progress.

    • Joe says:

      Nat Phos 6x is NOT a drug and may be given safely to babies and adults.
      If he responds with half tablet, you may continue with this dose.

      You must STOP the “thickner” as this is usually rice protein and is the CAUSE of baby’s GERD and Reflux.

  118. Smriti says:

    Hello, It’s been almost 5 days since my baby is on NP, 1 tablet 5-6 times a day & I thought it is time again to report you his condition. There is definitely a lot of improvement in terms of quantity of consuming milk & comfort. He has started playing more which he had completely stopped before starting NP but still he is fussy and vomiting occasionally . He has become more gassy now and today he has been crying most of the time he is awake. At night he is more uncomfortable and keeps rolling on his belly & moans. Towards early morning he wakes up crying almost every day. Pls suggest if something can be done to make him sleep better & stop his crying.
    Thanks

  119. Smriti says:

    Hi, Can I start giving him Nux vomica now as he is still uncomfortable and spitting a bit every time he is taking feed?

    • Joe says:

      Yes you may give him the Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose twice daily.
      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

      REport progress in 24 hours

  120. Smriti says:

    Thanks.
    Sorry to bother you again but just to make sure before ordering Nux Vomica, is there any possibility of having serious side effects on a baby by any chance as given on many web sites?

    I would also like to seek some help for myself as I am completely exhausted carrying my son all day as he doesn’t stay down at all for the whole day (other than he is napping). Especially my lower back pains a lot if I walk or stand for a long time. And it is not about muscle pain but bones just above hips are in pain all the time.
    I have also read about the miracle remedy Arnica 30c. Will it benefit me with this problem?
    Kind regards

    • Joe says:

      There is absolutely no danger to give a baby Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose twice daily as prescribed by me, and it has been used by at least 30 babies for whom I prescribed it, as you can read for yourself on my Website. In any case there is no other remedy to treat your baby’s Reflux and this works to reinforce the Nat Phos 6x which I hope you are giving half tablet before a feed and the balance half immediately after.

      You have identified the correct remedy for yourself — Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily. This will ease your aches and pains within a few hours and you can report your response in 24 hours.

  121. Smriti says:

    Resp. Doctor,
    First of all I apologize for reporting so late as I have received the order of both Nux v & Arnica today only after a wait of 4 days. Now I am a bit doubtful,I stay in Holland & the medicines I got are as Nux Vomica D30 liquid drops 30ml & Arnica Montana D30 .Are these the correct medicines? Can I go ahead with them?
    Just to brief you with my son’s report until now – He has been on Nat phos 1 tab after every feed, was showing lot of improvement for 1 week but since last 3 days he again became fussy while feeds and he reduced taking amount of milk per every feed, spitting out a bit, very gassy & uncomfortable during night (but is still happy during day). Now as per your advice I am desperate to start with Nux V but only after you give me the green signal.
    Thanks in advance for your precious time to guide me.

  122. Smriti says:

    Hello Sir,

    Kindly advice me regarding my previous post.
    I am just confused between the 30c & D30, The pharmacy staff is also not sure whether it is the same.

    Thanks
    Smriti

    • Joe says:

      My apologies as I had overlooked your post till now.

      Nux Vomica 30c is the remedy I prescribed and you state you have received Nux Vomica D30.

      D30 is 30x and is NOT TO BE USED FOR BABY.
      You must order the 30c and not 30x which is a MILLION times more powerful and is DANGEROUS for babies.

      Please spare me the time and effort I spend in prescribing for you and your baby as I am 85 years of age and I am only doing a service to all who seek my assistance with my Joepathy as it has helped in some wondrous ways.

      When I prescribe a remedy, I expect the user to get the correct remedy at the prescribed potency.

      • Smriti says:

        Thank you so much. I completely understand how much time & efforts you are putting in in serving numerous patients around the world which is really commendable especially at this age.
        I will order the correct one from some other place again & better wait until then.
        I wonder if Nat phos D6 is the same as 6X. I had asked this question on abchomeopathy.com and got the answer that D6 has the same potency as 6X and my son is on Nat Phos D6 for more than 10 days.
        Also my question was is Arnica & Arnica montana D30 the same? Pls confirm that too. I would be grateful to you.
        Thanks
        Smriti

  123. Smriti says:

    Resp Dr. De Livera,

    Kindly accept my apology to have posted again & again on this page. But as I am a bit concerned about my baby’s growth, I wanted to report his current condition to you.
    Today was his appointment with the paediatrician and his weight was found to be dropping despite his feeding better than before. Also his head circumference is not growing as expected. I am still trying hard to get Nux Vomica here in holland and giving him 1 tab of Nat Phos 5-6 times a day. Now I would like to try reducing it to 1/2 a tab per feed. Request you to give your suggestion as well on this.
    Your advice would be very precious to me.
    Kind regards
    Smriti

    • Joe says:

      You may amend your dosage of Nat Phos 6x as you wish as it is a remedy that is absolutely safe in use.

      Nux vomica 30c however, may only be given twice daily in the Wet dose.

      I am very surprised to learn that standard Homeopathic remedies are not available in Holland.

        Thanks a ton for giving me all this information. I will continue with Nat Phos until I receive my order.
        In the meantime can you prescribe any other biochemic sea salt to my son for gas & cramps as these days he is not sleeping at night at all due to lot of pain.

    Dear doctor,

    I hope all is well.

    We have a little boy, he is 7 weeks old and his weight is 12 pounds.
    Until now he has been eating very well and he gained a lot of weight. The last couple of weeks he started with reflux symptoms, he cries when is burping, he has a lot of flatulence and regurgitation also he does not want to eat and cries a lot. It seems like that something is bothering him. He also cries and wakes up when he poops and passes gas. What would you suggest? Thank you and best regards, andrea

      • Andrea Vasquez says:

        Thank you so much 🙂 how long I have to give him the nat phos 6x?

        • Joe says:

          You have not started on my therapy for Baby GERD and you inquire:
          “how long I have to give him the nat phos 6x?”

          How do you expect me to give you a time frame for your baby’s cure of GERD even before you commence treatment?

  125. Andrea says:

    Hello,

    I am so sorry yes you are right.

    Until now I gave him 4 dosis. Definitely its better the reflux, still spit up but is not bother him any more.
    The only concern that I have is he is poops a lot like a diahereea that is for the nat phos?
    Thank you !!

    • Joe says:

      Glad to note that in just 4 doses you have observed some improvement.

      You can treat his watery stools if you feel they are a problem by reducing the dose of Nat Phos which is a laxative in a large dose.

  127. Andrea says:

    Hello

    I want to let you know how was the 24 hours treatment. I gave him 6 times. Definitely is much better, the only thing is he eats 11 or 12 times per 24 hours, and I gave him like 3 times during the morning and 3 times during the afternoon, was the reflux worse when He didn’t receive the nat phos. Please let me know if I should continue the treatment like today or make something diferent

    Thank you !!!

    Hello,

    I have a daughter who is almost 3 years old. She have never had any signs of GERD but she started a daycare few months ago and she gets sick all the time – she goes to a daycare and after 2-3 days she has runny nose, fever, cough etc. This goes on for months: 2-3 days in a daycare, 1-2 weeks at home and so on. Our doctor says it could be GERD causing all that. I discovered that her throat is red all the time even if she is not sick. Also her tongue has white coating (it appeared after taking antibiotics but it is not candida) and she poops only 2 times a week (also after taking antibiotics, before she did it daily). If my daughter stays at home and does not go to the daycare, she does not get sick, so I am confused if the GERD is the trigger to get sick all the time or if she has GERD at all – are her symtoms enough to diagnose?
    I would like to try your treatment if you think it is a GERD case.
    Thank you.
    p.s. sorry for my english.

    • Joe says:

      I do not think that your daughter’s problem is GERD but the remedy I prescribe, Nat Phos 6x (NP) will also act as a mild laxative and you will be able to report her response if it is GERD in a couple of days.

      You can give her 2 tablets of NP after every meal and you can reduce it down to just one tablet if she over-reacts and presents lose stools.

      You will give her a Probiotic to help replace the bacteria in her gut which would have been eliminated by the antibiotic.

      Report progress in 48 hours.

      If baby has improved after you gave him the Nat Phos 6x, half tablet before a feed and half after, you can continue with this remedy as it is very safe in use, unlike drugs that create more problems than they solve.

      Why do you want me to change the remedy when you have seen for yourself that he suffers if you do not give it to him?

      You stated:
      “was the reflux worse when He didn’t receive the nat phos.”

      There is no reason to panic if he improves.

  130. tracey says:

    hi Dr. Joe, My baby is 4 mos old and has reflux. we nursed great for first 6 wks no bottles until she started having probs. she does have mild torticollis as well. i do not want to put on meds i have been using gripe water or boiron colic relief and sometimes an ounce of chamomile tea which helps but i dont want to minimize milk intake. i just found out about nat phos 6x. i see you recommend diff things for diff ppl so i didnt want to just try on my own. she has silent reflux not alot of vomitting. i exclusively breastfeed and having issues with it, she wants to nurse but it hurts her apparently. sometimes she will move her head the other direction after latch and it will fall off sometimes she seems to not know how to suck it in she will be moving face back and forth like its just going to fall in. her feet must feel grounded at all times during the feed or she cannot nurse she will latch and if they are not in particular way or comfortable she cries. she is generally happy baby but now bottle feeds are even hard and causign her to arch and be in discomfort while eating. it seems to be getting worse each week. she nurses better when relaxed and tired and has issues and wants bottle during day. even though she is not fussing all day i still am sure she has some discomfort between feeds. i also notice on occassion she has a little mucus near her vagina-is this normal for a baby? just a tiny bit and not all time. would like any help. also please note if i am giving only when presenting symptom or if i give preventatively so she doesnt get tot he uncomfortable stage . thanks

    • tracey says:

      also i do take her to chiro as well and she gets physical therapy for torticollis which is improving.

      • tracey says:

        sorry forgot to mention i am trying to get her back to breast more and bottles less i would prefer no to little bottles . i also read your intstructins on wet dose i am confused by all of this and not sure who is to take what meds is baby to take or me? what am i making it wet with?

    • Joe says:

      You will stop all other medication when you start on my Nat Phos 6x therapy which I am copying below as I realize that your baby’s case is urgent and needs a solution immediately. I shall deal with the other issues you listed later.

  131. Tracey says:

    Thank you kindly for your quick response, when i dissolve in breast milk how much just a bit like a teaspoon or more like an ounce? also so you are giving 1/2 tab before she eats then right after this would be one full tab at one feeding not to exceed this process 6 times a day ? thank you again.

  132. Tracey says:

    i forgot to ask, can i give a probiotic to her to help with digestion? i am planning to try dairy free diet starting tomorrow not sure what is bothering her system, also when you have a minute is there a good remedy for clogged tear duct? i cannot seem to get this to go away and she is almost 4mos old thanks

    • Joe says:

      I have been copying the remedy for Baby GERD to literally hundreds of mothers and they have not asked me the questions you are asking me both yesterday and today.

      I note that you have not got the medicines I have prescribed and when you do so you will follow my therapy LITERALLY and all will be well

  133. tracey says:

    Dear Dr. Joe, Warm regards. I have received the Nat Phos 6x Hylands #10 tablets. I have given to baby girl 4mos old 13lb 7oz this evening 1/2 dose dry (first dose i forgot to add some expressed milk i was so exhausted from today that i forgot being the first time i gave remedy) She had a rough day today only short naps like 1/2 hr and was very tired and hard to put to sleep as well. gas bubbles and hoarse throat and arching and could not latch on to breast during day. I gave the first 1/2 tablet dose at 8pm and i too took 2 tablets at same time as i just finished my evening meal. i was able to feed partially at breast but could tell she was having a hard time and coming on and off of breast and not using full force on her suck i let her go until she had a hard time and cried i knew she was not satisfied with a full feed so i gave her an addtl 2 oz which she was happy to receive and fell asleep, she then continued to wake every 15min for me to burp and hold her upright i could not hold her the entire night as i was spending time with son and doing chores so each time i was able to burp rock put back , when she woke for next feed at 10pm i gave her 1/2 dose prior to feed in expressed milk she was able to do an entire nursing session and suckle for an hour after feed she was asleep but i slipped in the rest of the tablet in milk . this was wonderful. she has not been able to do a full nursing session to get the full hind milk and get full rest in some time. i am very hopeful for your remedy. is it ok if i do the full tab prior to feed so as not to wake baby at end of feed? thank you for your concern. I see you ask some others where they are from so i will tell you, i am from Pittsburgh, Pa . Most moms here just go right to meds. I also never mentioned that my baby is Not vaccinated and will not be. Thank you Tracey

    • Joe says:

      I see that you refer to using only half a tablet of Nat Phos 6x for baby which you give her before a feed. You must give her the balance half immediately after to enable the milk to be digested without incident.

      You may give the full tablet dissolved in milk before a feed if she will take it but many mothers have reported that the slightly foreign taste puts their babies off.

      Report on her progress tomorrow when I hope that all will be well.

  134. tracey says:

    i did not make clear i gave her addtl 2 oz of breast milk (i do not use formula not sure if that is important to your instruction)

  135. tracey says:

    Good Evening Dr. Joe,
    Yes i am sorry i was not clear i gave 1/2 tab before feed 1/2 after. I have given 6 total tablets in the last 24 hrs, during night as usual she was ok and nursed (not as much as she should quantity wise coming off before she should ) but still nursed without incident. I did not work today on colic calm before she would nurse when home but did not do that today she had to to be on pumped milk all day . she had short naps and a few coughs nasal mucus sound, arching back during feeds having to stop alot crying it hurt to go down was uncomfortable for most feeds. during one afternoon nap she woke i was able to trick her and give breast and she did nurse that one time today for about 1/2 hr and it extended that nap which was great. This is nothing new though when she is very rested or half asleep sometimes i can do that. She had a chiropractor appt this evening afterward she was in her car seat at grocery store and screamed out like she was hurt twice but upon pick up she was happy and ok, not sure why as her adjustments are very mild and gentle maybe something was moved and it was an uncomforting change. This evening still could not breast feed. she fell asleep about 7 by bottle and normally will cry alot like every 5 to 15 min to be held upright but did not do that, she woke just now about 9 and i was able to nurse and give her first new dose of one tab 1/2 before 1/2 after she is back to sleep and should as normal have a rested night we bed share so she really does not wake she starts to move i feed her and then right back to sleep without fuss normally. as usual she was a happy girl during non feed times no colicky behaviors besides some coughing and wanting to be upright. i am hoping for better results tomorrow i need to get her back on breast and more comfortable at feeds than she was today.she does not seem to mind the taste of the pellets i could try one full tab and see how she reacts please advise of any changes . pleasant day to you

  136. tracey says:

    i did not mention i too took 2 tabs at each meal thank you

  137. tracey says:

    its now 11pm she has woken a few times in great discomfort. i am not sure what i am allowed to give her to help her comfort . i tried just holding and rocking , holding and burping and rocking she is still uncomfortable. i had to give colic ease as i had only given nat phos about 9pm. i gave colic ease as i never knew what i could give when this happens. if you advise so i dont have to do that next time. i sometimes give a bit of chamomile tea would this be ok with your instruction as my pediatrician ok’d it and i have given before also i would like to add in probiotic with your instruction. i am sorry i did not follow as advised but she has had so much discomfort today i want to give her relief. thank you

    • Joe says:

      I can see that your baby is not happy with Nat Phos alone. It is now time to give her Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose, a half teaspoonful twice daily. You can get the pellets of Nux V and use just 6 pellets in 500ml water.

      She will hopefully improve within a few hours when you will report progress.

  138. Tracey says:

    wonderful thank you , she is coughing alot today clearing her throat also. not able to breastfeed so i hope to get the nux vomica asap, can you tell me what nux v is? as you mentioned the nat phos was a biochemic cell salt and if there are any side effects concerns for taking it . thank you

  139. Tracey says:

    how long does the mixture stay fresh for , one day?

  140. Tracey says:

    this sounds concerning : “There is no proven safe or effective dose for nux vomica, and use in children is not recommended due to potential toxicity. In children, as little as 50mg of seed may cause intoxication or death.”

    • Joe says:

      Nux Vomica is the source of Strychnine which is a lethal POISON in the RAW state.

      Nux Vomica 30c is the Homeopathically POTENTIZED product which is diluted to 100 to the power 30 or 100 multiplied by itself 30 times at which level it is at NANO levels .

      It is a very effective remedy used extensively in Homeopathy. It cannot however be used on a daily basis unlike Arnica which can be so used.

    Dear Dr Delivera,

    My daughter is almost 3 weeks.

    She has shown symptoms of GERD from day 1 which got progressively worse as the days / weeks have passed.

    2 days ago I started giving her one nat Phos 6 dissolved in breast milk after every breast feed.

    As yet her symptoms are not improving at all, and in fact she seems to vomit up the nat Phos (very thick vomit) some time later.

    She is extremely unsettled and it is very upsetting. Even 2 hours after a feed she is gagging, vomiting and crying.

    I ordered a liquid dilution of arnica, but what I have received is arnica 30. I wanted to ask you can this be used if I make a wet dose as per your directions? Or is this the wrong potency? I know that I as the mother take this and not the baby.

    Any help or feedback is very greatly appreciated. I am concerned for my baby and also exhausted myself as she is so unsettled day and night. (She gets some relief from lying upright on my chest).

    Thanks in advance,

    Claire

    • Joe says:

      The Arnica 30c is exactly what you need and you will use just 3 DROPS of this remedy in a 500ml bottle of spring water and follow the instructions below:

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed for hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too. The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.

      Nat Phos 6x tablet dissolved in milk is given immediately after a feed. Start with half tablet before a feed and the balance given immediately after, dissolved in milk, but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby if you start on my therapy.

    • Joe says:

      I did a quick search under your name and discovered that I first treated you on 2012/11/18 for your son and you now are blessed with a daughter 3 weeks old who also suffers from the same problem baby GERD.

      You have not informed me how your son is progressing today and I shall await your news.

      It is best to give half tablet Nat Phos 6x before and the balance half immediately after a feed for best effect.

      The Arnica 30c you have got is OK but only for you. 3 drops in a 500ml bottle of water and you will take 5ml twice daily. This will usually improve your milk supply.

  142. Claire says:

    Thank you very much for your quick reply.

    Sorry for not reporting on my son’s progress. He is now 2 years old. The nat Phos cured him of his reflux symptoms as a baby. He continued to take nat Phos for about 6 weeks at that time. He breast fed until he was 18 months. As a toddler he has many chest infections and at all times has laboured breathing with a sound of mucus in his chest. He is otherwise thriving however, and is very tall for his age, and very active.

    I will now give my 3 week old daughter half a tablet before and after each feed, and take the arnica wet dose myself. I will be sure to report progress. I forgot to say that she has great pains when she has a bowel movement and she can strain for hours before her bowels finally move (yet her stools are loose). She has A LOT of wind, which also causes her distress. I’m not sure if this is relevant?

    • Joe says:

      “As a toddler he has many chest infections and at all times has laboured breathing with a sound of mucus in his chest.”

      It seems to me that your son may be suffering from Asthma from your description above and this will be confirmed if either of you parents suffer from Asthma.

      It is best to consult a pediatrician for diagnosis.

        Sorry I replied to the wrong post:

        Claire says:
        October 15, 2014 at 2:01 PM
        Thank you for the links regarding asthma. My doctor did indeed suggest he had asthma but said they don’t confirm or treat asthma until the child is at least 3.

        I am now reporting progress on my daughter:

        She continues to display reflux symptoms and is extremely unsettled at night (unsettled during the day too), and will only sleep upright on my shoulder. She generally only sleeps for 20-30 minutes at a time, and wakes with grunts and cries. Each feed seems to upset her greatly afterwards, although she is feeding well enough to get enough milk and is gaining weight very well. She feeds often to relieve her pains I think.

        May I ask how much milk you recommend to use to dissolve the nat Phos?

        Thanks,

        Claire

        • Joe says:

          I have already given you 2 cases of patients whom I have CURED of this disease for which medicine does not have any drug that will CURE Asthma.

          I hope that you do not intend using the standard Steroid Inhalers and the Nebulizers that are prescribed by doctors to help keep their patients breathing and alive. You do not also have to wait till the child is older to treat his Asthma as you will only be using just a teaspoonful of the remedy to treat it given nightly before bed.

          All you have to do is to ask me for the remedy that will hopefully CURE Asthma in your son. The reason why I wanted a doctors diagnosis on whether he has Asthma is because I cannot examine him myself as it needs a doctor to diagnose the disease.

          You can add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose given twice daily for your baby to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

          You will use a teaspoonful of milk to dissolve the tablet and you will give her half tablet before and the balance half after a feed for best effect.

          • Claire says:

            Thank you, I very much appreciate your help for both my son and daughter.

            I have refused several times the doctors prescriptions for inhalers, steroids and antibiotics for my son. I allowed him the antibiotics for the first 2 infections and quickly learned they were not going to help him get cured in the long term.

            I will now use your homeopathy for my son’s asthma.

            How much of the nux vomica 30c wet dose should I give to baby? Is the wet dose made in the same way as arnica wet dose?

            Thank you,

            Claire

            • Joe says:

              You will give half teaspoonful of the Nux V 30c in the Wet dose made in the same manner as the Arnica twice daily for your baby.

  143. Drica says:

    Good evening, thank you so much for all the information on this amazing website. I am contacting you as a desperate mother of a 6weeks old baby boy who has silent reflux. We saw the doctor 2 days ago who prescribed Gaviscon two sachets up to 6 times a day. We started it yesterday and although it helps a little bit as he doesnt cry as much, he is still a very unsettled unhappy baby with a lot of pain. He chokes and coughs A LOT, gasps for air, has really wet burps.. I have purchased nat phos granules today and the lady asked me to STOP GAVISCON and give him
    From 4 to 5 granules under his tongue twice daily, at least 10min before or after a meal. So only 10 granules a day. I have seen that you prescribe 1 tablet every feed but I do hope you can please tell me if i can use the granules as she informed? Or how would you suggest it please? Shall
    I stop gaviscon and try nat phos straight away? He has had reflux for about 15 days i think, we believed it was trapped wind / colic before.. Thank you so much

    • Joe says:

      It is best to get the Nat Phos 6x Biochemic Cell Salt which is always sold in Tablet form as the granules are not standard and may not help baby. I live in Sri Lanka and am not aware of the Homeopathic remedies available in the US.
      You will of course STOP Gaviscon which in any case you cannot continue to give a baby for some time unlike the Nat Phos which is absolutely safe as is is not a drug and works by stimulating Peristalsis thereby preventing acid reflux.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed for hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too. The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.

  144. Drica says:

    Thank you so much. I will have to order the tablets online and as soon as I start I will report back to you. The homeopathy shop that i bought the granules from suggested i give my son infant powder probiotics as well as nat phos, because i mentioned my son had antibiotics for 4 days after birth just as a precaution in case he had an infection, as he was born with high temperature. So the homeopath suggested i give him probiotics to replace the good bacteria that the antibiotics might have destroyed. Do you agree with that? Thank you so much for replying so quickly, we live in the Uk. Best regards

    • Joe says:

      Suggest you continue with the Nat Phos 6x you got in granules till the genuine product arrives as I presume that it has helped baby and enabled you to avoid Gaviscon.

      You can certainly give him the Probiotic according to the instructions on the pack but I am surprised to know that baby was born with a high temperature and would like to have more information on how high the fever was and what antibiotic was prescribed.

      I checked your email IP and believe that you live near Torquay.

      Am I correct?

  145. Drica says:

    Hello there, thank u loads. no, the granules haven’t arrived yet so I will do like you said and use them as soon as they arrive and before the tablets come too. Things are slow as I ordered yesterday and post office closed over the weekend. We live in England, London. Oh, the high temperature was a mistery. I dont know why it happened but during labour I had it and he had it too. But they did tests on him and informed that he had no infection. They gave antibiotics from when he was born for 4 days and I had them too. Unfortunately I didnt ask for the name of the antibiotic, sorry 🙁 I shall order the probiotics with nat phos tablets and will let you know. Thank you so much for your attention

  146. Drica says:

    Hi there again. I still havent got the nat phos, will tell you as soon as i get them. But would like your advice please. Yesterday I decided to stop breastfeeding him for a little while and give him
    Anti reflux formula. When the nat phos tablets arrive, shall I stop gaviscon straight away and give him the Nat Phos tablets and also have the tablets as well and start breastfeeding again? I only stopped because i am aware that the anti reflux formula is heavy on his stomach, less likely for him to bring it back up. But i really would love to continue breastfeeding, as it is best for him. I also have some arnica 30c pillules (nelsons) at home as I bought it after giving birth. Could i take them with water twice daily when I start breastfeeding him again? What are they for please? Thank you so much

    • Joe says:

      You will STOP all drugs and replace them with Nat Phos 6x and you will observe the difference in a few hours.

      Arnica 30c will improve your flow of milk and also enable you to recover better. Its effect will pass over to baby in your milk and he will enjoy deeper sleep as reported by many mothers.

      Make a Wet dose with 6-8 pellets in a 500ml bottle of spring water and take a teaspoonful twice daily.

  147. Drica says:

    Hello there. The granules just arrived, they dont have the tablets in stock but informed that 5-6 granules are equivalent to one tablet. I just gave him 5 granules under his tongue but had given him gaviscon just an hour ago as i didnt have the granules then. Now i am gonna stop gaviscon and start him on nat phos therapy. I saw the gp today and they recommended omeprazole, because he has a bad cough and chokes on it. I even thought about calling ambulance a couple of times. Do you think the nat phos can help with the cough soon? I dont want to start him
    On omeprazole. I am so worried about everything, please help. Thank you so much

    • Joe says:

      I do not have any experience with Nat Phos 6c Biochemic Cell Salt in granules but you can give them to baby as per instructions you received but I would not recommend that you give them under the tongue as there is a chance of baby choking on them. Dissolve them in milk or water.

      STOP Gaviscon and Omeprazole.

      You should observe the almost immediate response of baby to the Nat Phos, if it is the genuine product.
      Can you shop around for the tablets from other sources in your country?

  148. Tracey says:

    HI Dr Joe, I am too concerned to use Nux Vomica is there an alternative ? thanks

    • Joe says:

      I have responded to your query about Nux Vomica on October 10 where I stated:

      “Nux Vomica is the source of Strychnine which is a lethal POISON in the RAW state.

      Nux Vomica 30c is the Homeopathically POTENTIZED product which is diluted to 100 to the power 30 or 100 multiplied by itself 30 times at which level it is at NANO levels .

      It is a very effective remedy used extensively in Homeopathy. It cannot however be used on a daily basis unlike Arnica which can be so used.”

      I would like to add that it is a million times SAFER than a drug like Zantac which is prescribed by pediatricians for babies even though they are fully aware of the repercussions that the unsuspecting baby will have to suffer in later life.

      There is unfortunately no alternative to Nux Vomica which I have prescribed for at least 25 babies for this year alone whose cases you can refer to on my Website.

  149. Drica says:

    Hi there. So i already gave him 7 doses of nat phos. He is not on gaviscon since yesterday. He doesnt really cry in pain but is uncomfortable all the time, really unhappy most of the time and doesnt sleep. His cough is the same, he coughs a lot very often. He closes his eyes and then opens again twisting his body as if something is hurting. The worst is that i am not breastfeeding so cant give him arnica through my milk. Any advice please? Thank you

    • Joe says:

      If you feel that Baby is not responding to the Nat Phos 6x alone you may add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose to reinforce its action.

      You will make it as per instructions below and give half teaspoonful, twice daily.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Get Nux Vomica 30c in the standard pellets and insert just 6 pellets into a 500ml bottle of Spring Water.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping the half teaspoonful twice daily.

    Dear Sir,

    Thank you for your help. I shall pray that your therapy works for her. Will report her progress in 24 hours. I am not able to produce breast milk…so she is completely on formula.

    Sir….as she is preemie and in taking time to gain weight….I had a concern if NP will interfere with her weight gain or feeding.
    I would like to thank you again for the great help you are providing to our babies. May god always bless you.

    • Joe says:

      You do not have to fear that Nat Phos 6x may REDUCE your baby’s weight as this only occurs in the case of the OBESE who need to reduce their weight and NP will do so at 1kg per week.

      NP will stimulate Peristalsis and ensure that baby’s digestion is stimulated which ensures that the build up of HCl Acid which is the root cause of Baby GERD is prevented.

      You only have the alternate drug Zantac or Prevacid or Nexium to name only 3 of the dangerous PPI drugs which will all result in serious damage to baby’s future life.

  155. Neha Gupta says:

    Thank you so much Sir for your update. Its a relief. Her weight gain is something that I need to keep close watch on. Have given her first dose. Fingers crossed. Will keep you posted on her progress. Thank you.

    Dear Sir,
    First of all pls accept my best wishes for your Birthday, although I have been late in wishing you.
    My son is on Nat phos for quite a while now and is doing much better than before. For some reason I could not give him Nux vomica but with only 1/2 a tablet of Nat phos alone after each feed,he has shown lot of improvement since last month.
    Also you had suggested eupatorium 200 for my daughter for recurrent colds, which also works very well on her. I give her a wet dose of it whenever she has cold and it is under control.
    I don’t find enough words to thank you for all your deeds. Thanks a lot Sir. You are really great.
    Smriti

    • Joe says:

      Thank you for your greetings.

      Glad to note that my Joepathy has helped your son and you do not need to give the Nux Vomica now as this is only prescribed for babies who do not respond to the Nat Phos alone.

    Dear Sir,
    These are my observations so far:

    1. I could only give her 4 doses as she is a snacker and keeps taking very small feed.
    2. For the first 2 doses there was incredible improvement but for the next two her symptoms were back.
    3. She seems bit more sleepy (could be because of relief)
    4. She spits immediately after giving medicine so I am not sure if she spits out medicine of is it wet burp.
    5. She passed stool which was one-third of her regular quantity and pretty late too.(surprisingly she pased the initial tight stool and not the later soft ones which comes out easily)
    6. I keep her upright for about 20mins after every feed…and she keeps making gestures as if sonething just came up her mouth.
    7. Her most common symptom is she keeps taking her tongue out after some feeds as if something in stuck. Then she takes comfort feeding after being restless for sometime and tries to take the bottle nipple deep inside the throat. This returned after the first 2 doses.

    Please guide me further Sir.

    Thank you so much.

    I forgot to add that she seems to be more gassy and taking lesser quantity of feed.
    Thanks again.

    Hello, my 1 month old daugter has been diagnosed with acid reflux, the pediatrician gave her domperidone and ranitidine, she is exclusive breastfeeding 7 times a day (3.5oz each feeding). She is very fussy after every meal, and has A LOT of hiccups! Help! What do you recommend? Thank you very much!!

    • Joe says:

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed for hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too. The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.

      Nat Phos 6x tablet dissolved in milk is given immediately after a feed. Start with half tablet before a feed and the balance given immediately after, dissolved in milk, but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby if you start on my therapy.

  160. Pilar says:

    I live in México and i only found de liquid form of Nat Phos 6x, does that work?? im still looking to see where I can find it :S

  161. Pilar says:

    If I find the tablets, what do you Mean disolve in milk? I am breastfeeding, can just give her the tablet alone to dissolve in mouth? Thk you very much Sir! 🙂

    • Joe says:

      Breast milk is a LIQUID and you can squeeze some milk into a teaspoon and dissolve the tablet in it.
      The danger in putting a tablet in her mouth is that it can choke her when asleep if it does not dissolve before it goes down.

  162. Pilar says:

    Thk you Sir, I still havnt found NP in tablet 🙁 only liquid can I use that one?

  163. Pilar says:

    Hello Sir I have found the NP 6x tablets!! 🙂 :), do I start for baby half before feeding and half after feeding? Me the mother Do I drink arnica 6x or 30x? Thnku!!!

    • Joe says:

      You will give baby half tablet Nat Phos 6x before a feed and the balance half after a feed. You can dissolve the tablet and give the dissolved tablet instead of the dry tablet which can choke baby.

      You will take 2 tablets Nat Phos after every meal thrice daily as the effect will also pass over to baby in your milk.

      You do not have to take Arnica at all.

  164. Smriti says:

    Hello Sir,
    I have been informing you about my 7 1/2 month son’s progress from time to time. I had started with Nat Phos in July end & he is on it on & off . I can certainly see the difference when I stop giving it to him. So he must take it (1/2 tab after each feed). But the only concern is his weight gain. He is putting on very slowly. He is just 5.9 kgs due to which he had to undergo all kinds of tests in the hospital which fortunately came out clear.
    I started giving him solids just a few days back (following your advice as not to start it at 6 month). The paediatricians kept insisting to start with solids for weight gain.
    Kindly advice.

    Kind regards

    • Joe says:

      If your baby is able to tolerate the solids at 7.5 months, you can continue with them. If he cannot do so and presents a worse case of GERD you will obviously have to stop the solids and keep to the milk.

      I note that you give him only half a tablet after a feed. It is quite OK to give him half before and the balance after.

  165. Smriti says:

    The thing is that when he is on Nat Phos, we clearly note that he fails to gain weight even though he starts feeding better and when stop it’s use he starts gaining weight but is very uncomfortable all day. I am now confused what can be done to continue with the tablet with a good growth.

    Thanks

    • Joe says:

      Read the hundreds of cases of babies who have been prescribed the same Nat Phos 6x whose mothers have never complained about their baby losing weight on this same thread on my Website.

      If you feel that Nat Phos is not suitable you can always return to the drugs you were giving baby.

  166. Alicia says:

    I have been reading alot of posts from mothers who have tried Nat Phos 6x for their baby’s acid reflux and had good results.

    My son in almost 4 months old and weighs 16 lbs, he has acid reflux and has been struggling with it for 3 months now. I really want to try this remedy however I am unsure about dosage. I was wondering how this works and what the recommended dosage would be? Also, he is currently taking Zantac, should we stop the Zantac before we start the remedy? Are there any ‘side effects’ we should be aware of?

    • Joe says:

      It is not usual for a baby to suffer from Reflux from the tender age of just a month. You have not indicated if you are breast feeding baby and if so, it is possible that you are eating the wrong food that can be the cause of baby’s distress.

      If however you are feeding baby a formula milk, the simplest remedy is to change the brand.

      You do not seem to be aware that Zantac has been accepted by the medical profession as being a drug which may only be used in the short term as it causes severe distress to adults when used over the long term. The possible damage to an infant is best left unsaid.

      Do a search under “The danger of using PPI drugs” to know about them.

      Nat Phos 6x is NOT a drug. It is a Biochemic Cell Salt and can be used very safely by both babies and adults. Again do a search under this title.

  167. Alicia says:

    Thank you very much for your prompt response.

    My son is a breastfed baby and I already follow a pretty strict diet as I have an allergy to gluten and dairy. We have also already decided not to vaccinate our son until he is much older if at all.

    I do not like having him on the Zantac however it did offer some relief to my poor child. I did not know what else to do or what was going on. We are first time parents and we are learning a lot about how we want to care for our child.

    I do not wish to continue to give him such medicines which is how I found my way to this website. I have been searching alternatives to the Zantac and this seemed like a safe one to try. I already ordered the Nat Phos 6x, once it arrives I will be starting this regiment with my son.

    We did try to research this product prior to contacting you, thank you for explaining what it is. I will stay in contact and let you know how it works out. Again thank you for your prompt response.

    Sir,
    Our 10-weeks twins (born at 37 weeks) have reflux. Nikolai and Addison are on Zantac .5ml 3x per day and they were previously on Prevacid 15mg 1x per day. The formula that they are currently on Nutramigen(Hypoallergenic infant formula). We lowered the dose of Zantac for both of them to .3ml since we saw improvement. Well that back fired they started with the old habits of spitting up after feeding, drooling a lot and being very fussy. We are currently feeding them every 3.5oz’s of formula 3 or 4hrs per day. I have heard so much positive feedback in regards to Nat Phos x6. What would be your dosage recommendation for Addison and Nikolai to use of Nat Phos x6? I appreciate your assistance.

    Gina

    • Joe says:

      STOP THE ZANTAC IMMEDIATELY.

      Replace it with Nat Phos 6x as per instructions below:

    Sir,
    Sorry I need to correct my last comments

    We feed them 3.5oz of formula every 3 or 4hrs per day. Sorry for the confusion.

    Gina

    • Joe says:

      It is possible that your babies are being overfed at 3.5oz formula and this is the cause of their reflux.
      Reduce the feed a little and observe results after adding the Nat Phos 6x as instructed.
      Please note that Nat P is NOT A DRUG and is absolutely safe in use.

      • Gina says:

        Sir,
        Thank you for responding so promptly.
        Later on in the treatment do we give them the whole Nat Phos 6x after the feeding?
        Gina

        • Joe says:

          Many mothers have reported that giving half tablet before a feed with the balance immediately after seemed to be more effective than giving a full tablet after.

          You can use your discretion on what is best for your babies. If you still find that their Reflux is not stopped in say 3 days, you can add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose and you will give half a teaspoonful twice daily for a few days to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

          You will stop the Nux V if you give it as soon as your babies respond but you will continue with the Nat Phos which is very safe in use over long periods.

          The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

          Order the remedy in the Liquid pack in Alcohol, also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
          Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
          Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
          Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard at least 6 times before a dose is given to baby.
          Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this enhances the effect of the remedy on the user.

    Hi Mr. Delivera,
    My son is almost 5 weeks old and is suffering from silent reflux. He does not regurgitate much, but is frequently showing discomfort after feeding. He would wriggle alot, and also arch his neck and back, and sometimes crying from the discomfort. He also have noisy breathing, wheezing, and gagging/ choking and this only happens towards the end of feed and after feed. His sleep is affected as he is often woken up by the discomfort. During the day, he only takes cat naps. He also often nurses for comfort. I have started him on probiotics for 2 days, and have been giving him gripe water for the past 3 days. The gripe water helps with getting the gas out and reducing the discomfort slightly, but he is still silently refluxing. I am keen to try your remedy of Nat Phos 6x. I have ordered the Nat Phos and just received it today. I would like to know if I can still continue to give the probiotics and gripe water in conjunction to the nat phos treatment? thank you very much for your help.

      • Leah K says:

        I gave my baby 1 tablet per feeding for his first 2 feeding yesterday. I then fed him 1/2 tablet per feeding for his subsequent feeding and last 2 none. This is in order to not exceed the 6 tablet/ day recommendation as he feeds 12 or more times a day. I exclusively breastfees. He seems to be calmer after the first 2 feedings where i gave 1 NP tablet. With the 1/2 tablet, sometimes he is calm and sleeping well, but sometimes he is wriggling and arching still and is very gassy. For the feedings with no NP, he is back to his usual symptoms of gassiness, fussy during and after feeding, hiccups, etc. He spits out a little whenever NP is given during the feed, and tend to not spit when the NP is not given (silent reflux instead). Should I continue on the 6 NP per day dosage for him?

        • Joe says:

          Nat Phos 6x is NOT a drug and can be safely given even in excess of 6 tablets per 24 hours to babies. It is just that your son is only 5 weeks old that I stipulated not to exceed 6 tabs.

          If you feel that he would be happier with more tabs feel free to give him 8 tabs but always in half tabs given before and after a feed as this has been reported by mothers to be more effective than a whole tab for a dose after a feed.

          Please confirm that you are dissolving the tab in milk or water.

          Also order Nux Vomica 30 in the standard pellets but you will NOT use it till I instruct you to do so.

          • Leah K says:

            I am dissolving the tab in a little water as I am breastfeeding exclusively. As for the Nux Vomica, I’ve read potential serious side effect and am a little concerned. The following description about Nux Vomica is copied directly from webmd:

            “Nux vomica is UNSAFE. Taking nux vomica for more than a week, or in high amounts of 30 mg or more, can cause severe side effects. Some of these side effects include restlessness, anxiety, dizziness, neck and back stiffness, spasms of jaw and neck muscles, convulsions, seizures, breathing problems, liver failure, and death.
            Special Precautions & Warnings:
            No one should take nux vomica, but certain people are especially at risk for toxic side effects. These side effects are especially dangerous if you have any of the following conditions:

            Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Taking nux vomica can harm both mother and child. Don’t use it.

            Liver disease: The strychnine in nux vomica can cause liver damage or make liver disease worse. Don’t use it.”

            • Joe says:

              I note your concern to use Nux Vomica 30c which you will notice I prescribed but stated:
              “Also order Nux Vomica 30 in the standard pellets but you will NOT use it till I instruct you to do so.”

It was only when I was cured of my frequent colds that I decided to study this Science and today I am happy to state that I have further refined it by not using the original philosophy of treating the “Symptoms that the patient presents with a Single Remedy”. I treat the ailment in the manner that any allopathic physician would treat a disease by prescribing directly for it. You are invited to do a search on Google for further information under:

              You do not have to use my therapy as you can revert back to your pediatrician who would have prescribed a PPI drug like Zantac, Nexium or any one of over 50 brands of this drug which the FDA has ruled as being dangerous in use over any long period for ADULTS. I shudder to think of the damage they can cause to innocent babies.

  171. Leah K says:

    Hi Mr. De Livera,

    Thank you for alleviating my concern. As you are aware, I am new to homeopathy and I appreciate your explanation as this helps with my concern. I am also in disagreement of the use of acid blocker or PPI. The doctor had originally prescribed him ranitidine (zantac) when he was 3 weeks old, but I had refused to use it. I always do a thorough research before taking any medication. I have heard about good things about your treatment and am very appreciative of your help.

    Yesterday, I notice improvement in my baby’s reflux with continued use of NP. In fact, I did not have to use as much NP as the day before. In total I used 4 tablets in 24 hours, giving him about 1/2 per feed. There was only one occasion where there was a spit up (possibly due to overfeeding because my flow was very strong then), and he does not seem to struggle or arch his back from pain. He is still gassy, possibly again due to fast let down from breastfeeding, but the NP seem to help him burp better. Before this, he would be gassy but very difficult to burp.

    He is still having throaty breathing – sounds as if there is mucus or congestion in his respiratory system. Previously, I thought it was the acid refluxing that causes this issue – but now I’m not sure, since he is not showing arching of back and neck anymore.

    He sometimes still strain and cry when trying to have a bowel movement – and he takes a while before he could move his bowel, but as soon as he does, he is relieved. He is not constipated however, since he has several bowel movements in a day (sometimes 8 times a day).

  172. Leah K says:

    Just to add to above. After feeding, he will sometimes gag/ choke on something. Then his breathing becomes noisy as if liquid is stuck in his throat. It looks like some fluid travels back up to the back of his throat. This happens even when I keep him upright. He would pause breathing sometimes when the fluid gets caught in his throat and then gag.
    However the back arching and neck arching is gone.

    • Joe says:

      It seems to me that we may have to add the Nux V 30 in the Wet dose as I anticipated if baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone. If you have got it already there is no harm to give him a dose and observe and report his response.
      to
      I hope that you are now convinced that Nux V is NOT the lethal poison you seemed to think it was and even so, I prefer to treat babies and even adults with my therapy which up to today after over 25 years of prescribing has NOT RESULTED IN A SINGLE AGGRAVATION of the ailment simply because the Wet dose method is absolutely safe in use.

  173. Leah K says:

    I have placed an order for NV 30 and am waiting for its arrival. In the mean time, should I continue to give him NP?

    • Joe says:

      Is there any reason why you should not continue to give baby the Nat Phos 6x especially since you have reported positive improvement in his status:
      “Yesterday, I notice improvement in my baby’s reflux with continued use of NP. In fact, I did not have to use as much NP as the day before. In total I used 4 tablets in 24 hours, giving him about 1/2 per feed. There was only one occasion where there was a spit up (possibly due to overfeeding because my flow was very strong then), and he does not seem to struggle or arch his back from pain.

  174. Leah K says:

    Hi Mr. De Livera,

    I just wanted to double check. I’ve ordered the Nux V 30c in tablet form as I couldn’t find one in the pellet form. The link is here: https://www.victoriahealth.com/product/Nux-Vom-30c/1394

    Is this the right type?

  175. Leah K says:

    To answer your question, no there is no reason for me to not continue. I am just confirming with you the right course of action. I will continue to give Nat Phos 6X until your further instruction.

    Hello Sir,

    Baby Details:
    Age: 5.5 months
    Gender: Female
    DOB: 28-Oct-2014
    Diet: Breastmilk, 1 teaspoon of solid food

    Our baby has had Acid Reflux from the time she turned 2 months old. From the time she was born until she had her 2 months vaccination she was a very happy baby who hardly cried. After her 2 month vaccinations, she started crying very irritability. When we asked the doctors, they mentioned that it is probably a growth spurt. 17 days later during our pediatrician visit, the doctor mentioned that she had gained only 3oz in thos 17 days.During these 17 days her feeding had reduced a lot too.

    The doctor for the first time mentioned that the weight gain issue might be due to Acid Reflux and he prescribed 0.8 ml Ranitidine twice daily. Our daughter responded really well to Ranitidine and gained 8oz in 1 week. But, after 3 weeks when we went to the pediatrician again, she had gained only 2oz in 20 mins. And one of the days, she did not feed continuously for 16hours straight. Doctor at this time switched from Ranitidine to Lansoprazole. Again, after 7 days, Advaitha gained around 4oz in 7 days.

    The doctor concluded that she was having “failure to thrive” condition combined with severe Acid Reflux.He also, asked us to visit the doctors at the Failure to Thrive clinic at a Pediatric Super Speciality hospital over here. We went there for 4 weeks and found no improvement. Our daughter at this time had stopped feeding while she’s awake and only feeds while asleep or half asleep. Even now she feeds only while she’s asleep or half asleep.

    The doctor recommended to switch from Lansoprasole to Ranitidine. No other changes were noticed with Ranitidine even though we have given the medication to her since the time she was 2 months old.

    Now, the Failure to Thrive clinic doctor has referred us to GastoIntestinal Clinic who have done a couple of blood tests and an EGD test (awaiting results). We really want to try some other medication which will provide her complete relief than continue with Ranitidine.

    We heard about Nat Phos-6X from internet discussion forums and want to try it for her. We had a couple of questions for your regarding that.

    1. What is the dose (does she need to take half tablet or full tablet) of Nat Phos – 6X that we need to give her? How many times in a day do we need to give her the medicine?
    2. You have mentioned that even moms can take this tablet but should not take these tablets for more than 7 days since this will cause wait loss of 1kg per week. Will this medicine cause weight loss in infants too?
    3. How long (1 week, 2 week, etc.,) can our daughter take this medicine?

    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Nithin

      I shall revert back to you tomorrow and shall comment on the root cause of your Baby’s current distress. In the meanwhile you must STOP all drugs and start on my therapy aka “Joepathy” and report the relief your baby will experience in under 24 hours.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD that I have prescribed for hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too. The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.

      Nat Phos 6x tablet dissolved in milk is given immediately after a feed. Start with half tablet before a feed and the balance given immediately after, dissolved in milk, but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby if you start on my therapy.

    Thank you very much Sir for your quick reply. We look forward to your detailed message tomorrow. We have started giving our daughter Nat Phos 6X since this morning 6AM CST. She has not started feeding while she is awake but she does feed like she used to in her sleep. One thing we noticed is that she is getting some burps similar to what adults usually get after each feeding. She’s burping without us needing to burp her. She has silent reflux and has never spit up in the past. Even now she is not having any spit up. She used to have a tiny bit of curdy milk come up in her mouth in the past and since the time we started the medication that has reduced.

    And to add to my previous post – because of this weight gain issue we got an infant weighing machine. We used to weigh the baby before and after feeding to understand how much she feeds. On an average she drinks 1.5-2 oz (40-60 ml) every feeding. Since she feeds only during her sleep, she drinks around 8 times every day. Our feeding sessions starts at 2:30AM until 7AM, 9AM until 12:30PM, 2PM until 5:30PM and around 2 hours before she goes to bed. These are the times when she will most likely be sleeping.

    Also, since the time she started taking Lansoprazole, she passes stools once in 2 days and her Eczema has worsened. Like I mentioned earlier she’s not taking Lansoprazole and is only on Ranitidine now. That too we have stopped Ranitidine since the last 3 days.

    Couple of corrections on my earlier post:
    1. In 2nd paragraph I had mentioned “But, after 3 weeks when we went to the pediatrician again, she had gained only 2oz in 20 mins.”- it’s not 20 mins but 20 days.

    2. Question#2 – just rewording my question to make it simple.
    “You have mentioned that taking Nat Phos 6X causes weight loss in moms. Will it cause weight loss in babies too?

    Thanks again for everything you are doing. Look forward to your reply.

    Best Regards,
    Nithin

      “From the time she was born until she had her 2 months vaccination she was a very happy baby who hardly cried. After her 2 month vaccinations, she started crying very irritability. ”

      It is obvious that it was the vaccination that caused a chain reaction to your baby at 2 months. You are fortunate that this vaccination reacted with just GERD but you can do a search on the www for the other reactions associated to the brain and the development of children under:
      “The danger of vaccinations to children”

      It is the TRIPLE vaccination that is the problem as this vaccine for MMR often causes serious reactions to the innocent baby when given in ONE DOSE. Given separately in 3 shots, it does not seem to react badly.

      There is absolutely no loss of weight to the baby reported by the hundreds of mothers whom I have treated and you can read their reports on my Website. It is only the mother that will lose weight by 1kg+ per WEEK. This is a discovery I made and reported in 2005 on ABC Homeopathy of which I was a senior member.

      Doctors are taught that it is only drugs that can cure a disease. I do not agree and this is the reason for my establishing my Website to serve as a record of my therapy aka “Joepathy” to live on after me into the future as I am 86 years old and have proved conclusively that one does not have to depend on drugs to survive. It was the action of the PPI Drugs Ranitidine, Lansoprazole, Nexium, Zantac and many scores of others that are causing the damage to both adults and babies and a study of my Website is a record of my therapy to rescue suffering humanity from the after effects which you can read about on the WWW under:
      “The danger of PPI Drugs”

      I have not taken any drugs whatever since 2008 as I had to take an antibiotic after my Inguinal surgery and all my blood reports are absolutely normal except for my Blood Sugar which was very low at 71 Random which is equivalent to 50 Fasting. This caused a Hiccup which I suffered from for 8 days 24×7 and I had to consult a doctor who was very surprised at my reports but could not stop the Hiccup.

      I took a teaspoonful of Sugar and the Hiccup was history.

      I do take medicines for various ailments like Colds, Coughs but they are all Homeopathic. I do take Arnica 30 in the Wet dose nightly and have done so since 1996 and I believe that it was this remedy that has helped me to maintain a lifestyle at age 86 which is the envy of many who are half my age.

      You will give your daughter the remedies I have prescribed for as long as she needs them. They are absolutely safe.

      You, the parents, are also recommended to take:

      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose nightly for LIFE.

  178. Nithin Surendran says:

    Sir, we completely agree with you on the benefits of homeopathy. We are both Indians and hence have been made aware of homeopathy medications since our childhood. In fact my wife has taken only homeopathic medications most her life. But, since we are in the U.S. we do not have access to a Homeopathic doctor.

    Since our child is suffering a lot due to the acid reflux we really need your help. The dosage of Nat Phos 6X that you mentioned in your post last night – is that sufficient? Are there any other remedies to make her feed more breastmilk and to give her relief from acid reflux?

    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Nithin

    • Joe says:

      I am conservative in my therapy and we will give baby half tablet before and the balance after every feed.

      Arnica 6c in the Wet dose will increase lactation or milk production by the mother.
      She can take 5ml of the Wet dose made as per instructions below twice daily.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

      It is rarely that a baby’s mother decides to use my therapy on her own without referring it to me and you may not know that is my own ‘discovery’ and qualifies for the title “Joepathy” like so many other remedies that I have ‘discovered’ which are not referred to in the Materia Medica of Homeopathy like Arnica for Diabetes and Nat Phos 6x for reduction of weight. Thank you for confirming that your baby was helped by NP which you stated:

    My 26 month old daughter has been suffering from chronic vomiting since birth. She was exclusively breastfed until 1 year when we then decided to introduce solids. Things initially seemed fine but soon after the introduction of solids, my daughter began randomly throwing up most times immediately after eating solids, had painful and bloody bowel movements and she dropped off to the 5th percentile. My pediatrician at the time wanted to perform invasive procedures but I wanted to give her body time. Her intestinal issues resolved but she’s still plagued with random vomiting, hard swallowing, mouth breathing due to chronic stuffiness and delayed growth. She nursed until 15 months of age and I was strictly dairy, gluten and mostly egg free. Do you think, along with dietary changes, that she would benefit from your protocol?

    • Joe says:

      Your baby is another classic case of Baby GERD and you are fortunate that you referred her case to me instead of a pediatrician who would invariably have prescribed a dangerous PPI drug like Zantac, Nexium or equivalent which would have solved her problem of regurgitating her feed.

      On re-reading your post I note that you have in fact done so and that “My pediatrician at the time wanted to perform invasive procedures but I wanted to give her body time.” I am glad you did not permit this unnecessary procedure which would not have helped and may have caused more damage to her “bloody bowel movements”.

      You will observe if any of the solids you are giving her today are the cause of her distress. If you have been subjecting her to the Triple MMR vaccination this can also be suspected but this will depend on when you gave it and what her reaction was. I shall now copy my therapy for Baby GERD and you will report on her response in 48 hours after the first dose.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD that I have prescribed for hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too. The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.

    Hi Dr. Joe,

    My son is currently 3 month old and has been suffering from silent reflux since he was 3 weeks old. I had heard about Nat Phos from our chiropractor and decided to try it out with my son since he was 6 weeks old. The Nat Phos kept his reflux under control, but he is not completely relieved from it. However, it seems to keep it manageable. There is still some wriggling and writhing after feeds, but mostly he is better than before the Nat Phos. Overtime with continued use of NP, there is improvement to his reflux (with occasional flare ups from time to time). Eventually, we were able to keep him off NP when his condition stabilized and he was fine. This was until his vaccination at 9 weeks. I live in the UK and here at 2 months, they give 1 oral rotavirus vaccine, 1 shot of DTAP/IPV/Hib vaccine and 1 shot of PCV vaccination (a total of 2 shots and 1 oral).

    2 hours after his vaccination, he started screaming unconsolably midway during his feeds. At this time he has taken about 2oz of breastmilk and this was the point that seems to bring his reflux on. He refused the rest of his feeds and was screaming in pain almost the entire day. He fed only 1 other time for the rest of the day too. That night I gave him back NP for every of his feed. He feeds about 7-8 times a day and I see significant improvement from the use of NP, but not complete cure. He is still uncomfortable after feeds, and will whine and cry a ilttle, but at least he was not screaming in pain. We continued the use of NP and by the time he is 10 weeks, we went from giving him NP every feed and gradually reduced it to 2-3 tablets per day. His condition did not improve further with any increased dosage or continued use of NP. Around 10 weeks, I also started to remove dairy and soy from my diet. At the same time, I took him off NP since his condition had stabilized without it. 1 week later, I saw improvement in his reflux from my diet change- no more wriggling or writhing – and almost as if the reflux never existed.

    However, 2 days ago, he had a flare up. I had eaten some KFC chicken thinking it is probably dairy and soy free, but it may have caused his discomfort. Thinking back, I do not know the ingredient in the KFC. I had restarted him back on NP yesterday.

    Due to his constant battle with reflux, he has now developed feeding aversion. He would be very hungry and wanting to breastfeed but fight it at the same time. Sometimes he would suckle until my let down when the milk start flowing and then he would start screaming as soon as the milk flows. Most times, I have to resort to feeding him when he is sleepy or sleeping. Even then, he would take milk for about 2 letdowns (estimated about 2 oz) and then would start wriggling and writhing and then stop his feed. And then he would not feed again. This has affected his weight gain.

    After researching about reflux and NP, I came across your website and feel that you may be able to help with my son. The Nat Phos is working to a degree, but it is not providing full relief. He is not on any other medication other than Nat Phos. I appreciate your help and and thankful that you commit your time to helping others through this website.

    • Joe says:

      Glad to learn that the Nat Phos 6x therapy I pioneered to treat Reflux and GERD in both babies and adults has been recommended to you by your chiropractor and that you used it with some success for baby. I am surprised that it is not used more widely although I first used it myself about 25 years ago and after I discovered that it helped me to stabilize a puffed stomach after a meal at a hotel, I shared its beneficial effect with my friends and when I established my website I prescribed it for babies and was glad to note the results which occurred within a few minutes after a feed.

      I note that you have located my Website on the web and contacted me directly as in your baby’s case, you may continue with the NP in the same manner for the moment as prescribed in my default therapy I prescribe for baby GERD copied below:

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD that I have prescribed for hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too. The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.

      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby if you start on my therapy.

      I note that you have vaccinated baby and now know the result. Please spare baby from the triple MMR vaccination till he is over 2 years of age and give it SEPARATELY and not together as I have evidence that the triple is dangerous as you can verify for yourself on the web.

      You may add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose as a last resort to reinforce the effect of NP but you must know that it is Strychnine which is potentized to Nano Levels and although it is perfectly safe, it is best not to be given unless on a SOS basis.

  183. Faye says:

    Thank you for your quick response Sir! I have restarted him back on his NP and since his condition is pretty bad now, I am back to giving him NP for every of his feed.

    As for the Nux Vomica 30c, how do you recommend preparing the wet dose? And at which point and for how long should we give it to him?

    Also, I saw in other posts above that you recommend the mother to also take Arnica. What is the purpose of Arnica and will this also help my baby’s reflux?

    • Joe says:

      I believe that it is time to start him on Nux Vomica in the Wet dose given twice daily and you will report his response in 48 hours.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

      The Arnica will help you with the Nat Phos 6x and baby too will benefit from it through your breast milk, as many have reported that their babies slept more deeply than before. I stopped prescribing Arnica for the mother when I discovered a mother who was giving it to her baby. This did not hurt baby in any way but it was not necessary.

    • Joe says:

      I just remembered that you visited your chiropractor who introduced you to Nat Phos.

      May I know the reason why you did so?
      I ask the question as I feared that you had consulted him for Baby’s Reflux.

  184. Faye says:

    I have just checked with my local store. They do not have nux vomica in liquid dilution form, but do carry it in pillule form. The brand is Nelson’s. It is Nelson’s Nux vomica 30c in pillule format. Will this work?

  185. Faye says:

    It was just a chiropractor that I have been seeing for my back. She too had a daughter with reflux and had success with Nat Phos. That was what prompted me to try it. It was not a consultation about the reflux because she does not practice homeopathy. I just mentioned it as a passing comment.

    With regards to the Nux Vomica, would the pillule format work? If so, what is the instruction to make wet dose from the pillile form? I am not able to find the liquid dilution form here.

    • Joe says:

      The pellets are OK to make the Wet dose but they are only less than half as effective as the one in an Alcohol base.

      You can use 8 pellets in 500ml water and follow my instructions on making the Wet dose.

  186. Faye says:

    I gave 2 doses of the NV (one last night and one this morning) so far while still continuing him on NP for every feed. It does not seem to make a difference on his reflux yet. In fact this morning his reflux is a little worse (more screaming after feeds). Should i continue with the nux vomica?

    • Joe says:

      This is the reason why I prescribed the Liquid Dilution in Alcohol as it is far more potent than the pellets.

      The Ultimate Cure for Obesity on:

      http://abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/15923/

      This is a post I made on the ABC way back in 2004 on December 25, the day before the Tsunami hit Sri Lanka, a day which will forever will remain in my mind for as long as I live as I was involved in the Homeopathic after care of the many thousands of survivors immediately after the Tsunami when I was joined by members of Homeopaths Without Borders who sent 6 pairs of International Homeopaths to help care for the survivors.

      Your therapy for Obesity will comprise the use of
      Nat Phos 6x dose 3 tablets taken thrice daily after meals
      Arnica 30c in the Wet dose taken twice daily before meals.

      Weigh yourself today before you commence on my therapy and report your weight loss weekly when the standard loss which you can expect and has been reported is around 1kg per week.

      You will also do a regular stint of at least 45 minutes of exercise which will be done by you at intensive levels, irrespective of the general feeling of tiredness that you may experience, if you wish to benefit from my Joepathy.

      You will also control your diet and avoid fatty fools completely and eat in moderation to ensure that your stomach is filled to comfortable levels.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.

    How Nat phos help in reducing the weight ?

  192. Sam says:

    Good morning Sir,

    My son is 2 months old and suffers from milk protein and soy protein allergies as well as what the pediatrician diagnosed as GERD. He is on an amino-acid based formula. He was previously taking Zantac as well as Prevacid for the GERD. His reflux symptoms are: crying uncontrollably, spitting up, arching/stiffening his back, ect. We recently stopped the reflux medication after doing research regarding the medicine being given to infants. In our research, we discovered your site. I wanted to post to see if the NP would still be recommended for an infant with the milk and soy protein allergy. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    • Joe says:

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD that I have prescribed for hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too. The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.

      Nat Phos 6x tablet dissolved in milk is given immediately after a feed. Start with half tablet before a feed and the balance given immediately after, dissolved in milk, but you will not exceed 6 tablets in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after each feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby.You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over a year old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.
      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby if you start on my therapy.

    Hello sir,

    Thank you for your help with advising how to cure babies of GERD. Our daughter is 6 weeks old and has symptoms of silent reflux. Food comes up frequently, which she swallows, but it startles her and I assume sometimes really irritates her throat. As a result, her sleep has been disrupted and now she wants to be constantly held instead of laying flat or even at an incline.

    I read the numerous posts you have written and began your famous therapy. I began giving her 1/2 of Nat Phos 6x on Thursday afternoon. Symptoms appeared to get worse. Since then I have given her one tablet after feeding not to exceed 6 a day. Symptoms were worse on the 2nd and 3rd day. These included more frequently food coming up that she swallows, irritability, and less sleep. Today they appear to be somewhat better. Is it normal for symptoms to get worse before improvement appears? I was soo hopeful she will have immediate improvement like all other cases. Please advise what is best to continue the therapy. Thank you in advance for your help!

    • Joe says:

      Glad to note that you have read about my Nat Phos 6x therapy I pioneered some years back for baby GERD when I discovered that it was far more effective in comparison to the standard Homeopathic remedies that are prescribed even today for this common problem.

      I note that you used it for your 6 week old daughter and started her off on half tablet but that it made her condition worse. I presume that you now give the balance half after a feed and hope that her problems have been resolved.

      This form of Baby GERD seems to be common today especially in the case of babies who are not breast fed. Many react to formula and if you read the many accounts of mothers whom I have treated on my Website, you will see that breast fed babies are rarely suffer from this problem.

      I shall for the record copy my default therapy for Baby GERD and if she still does not stabilize I shall then prescribe another remedy in addition to the Nat Phos which should hopefully stabilize her.

        Hello again,

        I have seen slight improvement in our baby girl’s silent reflux. She is sleeping better and is less fussy. However, food continues to raise up, which she swallows, and it wakes up when she sleeps or bothers her during the day. I assume it may not burn her or bother her as much though, because she is less fussy now when it happens. I would hope the reflux would be controlled soon though.

        I should also clarify the following: she is exclusively breasfed from the beginning. She was born with an emergency c-section after trying 16 hours for a natural, no pain-medication birth. She was given antibiotics after birth for 48 hours due to meconium, but she did not have an infection. I have ordered infant probiotics as well and I am waiting on their arrival. She has never been on any reflux medication and I do not want to ever give her any. I hope your therapy will be the solution and help her system strengthen so milk will stop coming up and bother her so much. I will continue to give her the Nat Phos 6X. Do you suggest anything else since the improvement is not as much as I was hoping/expecting based on other accounts?

        Thank you.

        • Sylvia says:

          Hello again sir,

          After the last time I wrote you our daughter did not seem to respond much to the Nat Phos 6X on its own. I studied your other cases and proceeded to give her 2X a day Nux Vomica 30C in the wet dose prepared as you have indicated. After 2 days of administering her symptons disappeared completely! I got so happy, on the third day I only give her a some Nat PHos 6X. She was fine. But then the following day the reflux came back. Should I go back to give her Nat Phos and Nux Vomica now? Or does that mean this treatment did not help her? It did for a bit at least but the symptoms came back. How long can I give her Nux Vomica 30C?

          Thank you for your help.

          • Joe says:

            Glad to note that you have spent some time in studying cases of other mothers whose infants suffered from Baby GERD who were saved the trauma of the dangerous PPI drugs like Zantac , Prevacid and others which are only effective for a few days and are the cause of many other serious side effects which can be avoided by using Nat Phos 6x in combination with Nux Vomica 30c which you must give at least twice daily. You have found that giving it just once does not help.

            You can give it to baby as long as she benefits from it and you will know when to stop it. You will of course continue the Nat Phos 6x which is absolutely safe and can be use for life.

            I am copying the link to Vaccination of Babies in the hope that you will NOT vaccinate your own till she is over 2 years of age.

            Remember to give the MMR separately in 3 shots if you must give it at all.

    Hi Sir

    I have stared taking Net phos and i have lost 1kg. Will start taking arnica too. Will update you about the further process.
    Regards

  195. Amanda says:

    Good morning! My son is 9 mo. He is breastfed and has started eating solids. He weighs approx. 18-19 lbs. He naps well during the day (2-3 hrs twice/day), but at night has discomfort due to gas build up and reflux possibly. He does not spit up. Now that he eats more solids he is having further discomfort and won’t sleep for even 1 hour on his own. We have elevated the mattress in his crib and have tried Hylands Colic Tablets but they don’t have much effect. He nurses every 3 or so hours during the day. We believe the reflux is due to a tongue tie that has recently been released. Because he is older we are finding we need to re-train his tongue to nurse effectively as he often bites instead of sucking. Do you think this remedy would be helpful? Would he receive the tablets just after nursing or after solids as well?
    Thanks you kindly for any help you can offer!
    Most sincerely,
    Amanda Randall

        Thank you! I will receive the Nat Phos 6x next week! I will report after the first 24 hours!

        • Amanda says:

          Hello,
          I have received Nat Phos 6x and have given my son as prescribed for just over 24 hrs. His sleep had no big change. During the day he has always seemed fine, with nights being problematic and that hasn’t changed. He is up frequently. I try to burp him immediately after every feeding, however, at night when he is sleeping I cannot seem to get him to burp well – I try back pats, tummy massage, bouncing, changes in his position, etc and I cannot get the gas to come out. If I wake him there is no guarantee of burping but then he usually wants to nurse again which creates the problem again. This is what leads to his bloating and gas pains, by mid-night he is arching and uncomfortable. During the day he has no problem burping immediately after feeds. I’m unsure if he has a reflux problem or not. Is there anything I can try to help him burp? Also, is dissolving the tablet important or can I give it to him to dissolve in his mouth? When he’s sleeping it may be easier to give him the tablet on its own since he is used to solids and has had these types of tablets before for his teething, etc.
          Thank you again!
          Amanda

          • Joe says:

            I believe that your 9 month old baby is not ready for solids right now which makes him react to them with the symptoms you have reported.

            Stop the solids and report his progress.

          • Amanda says:

            I can try eliminating solids. These symptoms are from before starting solids as well.

  196. Jessica says:

    Hello Sir,

    I have been reading through the many comments here and have been very intrigued with the results! My baby hasn’t been diagnosed with reflux by a doctor but I am certain she has it because of the symptoms. She is 8 weeks old and the symptoms include difficulty feeding with arching back and neck, needs to be burped constantly and wet burps continue after nursing until the next feeding which is usually 3hrs, fussy after feeding and like pressure on her tummy, sounds congested after she eats and sometimes wheezing or raspiness when she breathes and she wakes constantly in sleep.

    I started her on probiotics and myself as well and that seemed to help get her bowel movements under control and back to a normal color and consistency. It wasn’t anything alarming just wasn’t the normal color and consistency.

    Anyways, I was going to start her and myself on the NP 6x and see if it changed anything. Everyone keeps telling me she will grow out of it or it’s something I am eating. I changed my diet and am eating simple foods and she still has symptoms so I’d like to exhaust all natural options!

    I have read your Therapy for baby GERD and will start with half a tablet. My question is do I give it before or after the feeding? I just ordered the NP 6x and am excited to give it a try unless you would suggest otherwise?

    Also I have a yeast infection and am taking an anti-fungal I don’t think the baby has thrush because no signs of it in her mouth but is NP 6x ok to take with my prescription of flucanazole the dosage is 200mg once a day for the next two to three weeks or would you suggest something else if I can’t do both at the same time?

    • Joe says:

      Glad to note that you have already read my therapy for Baby GERD and that you are already using it. You have however not indicated baby’s response.

      You will give half tablet of Nat Phos 6x before and the balance after every feed.

      You must understand that the antibiotic you are taking will be passed over to baby but since you have already been doing so for some time, there does not seem to be any possibility of stopping it.

      • Jessica says:

        I haven’t started the therapy for Baby GERD, I am excited to, but I don’t have the NP 6x yet. I just wanted to check in first and get those few questions answered while I am waiting on the shipment of the NP 6x.

        What do you mean give the balance after? Is that the other half? So they would get a full tablet each feeding? Also I know it is passed through the breastmilk, would it be best to switch to formula for another week and then switch back after I’m done taking it?

        I am more than happy to report back once I start which should be early next week. Thank you so much for your help!

        • Joe says:

          Please follow my therapy precisely as prescribed.

          Half tablet before and the balance after.

          You must NOT change to formula as your breast milk is precious for baby.

          • Jessica says:

            She slept much better last night and it’s been 24hrs and we have done a half tablet before and after each feeding with the Nat Phos 6x. I am taking it as well.

            She appears to be having symptoms still but overall most feedings have gone much better! She still gets fussy after a feed and has wet burps and spits up a little for a little while after. She is much easier to soothe and is talking much more instead of grunting in pain. So thank you! I am wondering if we should try anything else or let it play out for a few more days?

            • Joe says:

              Glad to note that you have given baby the Nat Phos 6x and that all is well.

              You stated:
              ” She is much easier to soothe and is talking much more instead of grunting in pain”

              It is best not to overfeed baby as this can result in promoting reflux. You can however feed more often for the first few weeks to ensure that your breast milk is not wasted.

              It is best to continue with your current protocol to feed your baby.

              Please remember my instructions on Vaccination as this can be counter productive if they are given when baby is least at risk to the many diseases these vaccinations are supposed to treat.

  197. Jessica says:

    If I do smaller feedings should I go down to a half tablet at a feed instead of a full tablet? Is it best to give NP 6x before and after each feed or can I just give it after?

    What would you recommend for smaller feedings? 2oz every 2hrs?

    • Joe says:

      Please read and UNDERSTAND my therapy in my prescription where I have already answered your questions.

      There is no objection to your feeding more often if you do not mind doing so and you can skip giving the Nat Phos for a few feeds.
      You may do so for a few days till baby responds without refluxing it out.

  198. Jessica says:

    Could she have a slight allergy to the lactose in the Nat Phos? Her stomach is pretty rumbly and I have been feeding her 2-3oz every 2-3 hrs. She is still fussy after feeding and is burping more now. I can feel the gas with my hand on her tummy.

    Alright! Will do! I’m just a worried momma is all. Thank you for the help!

  200. Jessica says:

    So it has been a little over 70 hrs since we have started using the Nat Phos 6x. I thought I had seen a change the first day because she slept better but these past two days have not been great. She isn’t sleeping well at all and I’ve switched to smaller amounts more frequently. She is arching her back at feedings. Spitting up a lot more and waking after 20-30 minutes of sleeping coughing and choking on whatever is coming up:/
    I’ve tried keeping her elevated from when she eats to hen she sleeps. I haven’t given her anything other than Nat Phos 6x, she hasn’t had any vaccines or anything like that. She has been on a probiotic and so have I.

    • Joe says:

      It seems to me that Baby is not responding to the Nat Phos 6x alone and it is time to add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose to reinforce its action.
      You will make it as per instructions below and give half teaspoonful, twice daily.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Get Nux Vomica 30c in the standard pellets and insert just 6 pellets into a 500ml bottle of Spring Water.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping the half teaspoonful twice daily.

      You will stop the Nux Vomica as soon as you find that baby is OK but you will continue the Nat Phos for as long as you feel that it is needed. NP is NOT a drug and is absolutely safe in use for long periods.

      Report progress in 48 hours.

    Hello, my 7 week old constantly spits up and vomits after eating. He was born jaundiced and lost too much weight so I was forced to supplement his feelings. He is 40% breastfed, 60% formula. I make homemade goats milk formula for him. I have cut out dairy, gluten and soy from my diet. He is not overly fussy and doesn’t seem to experience pain, only slight discomfort. He is not constipated but does have gas, hiccups and spits up sometimes large amounts when burping. I’m thinking he only needs half a tablet of Nat Phos 6x after each feed since he’s not severe, but would like your input. Thank you in advance.

    • Joe says:

      If Baby can be comforted with just half tablet of Nat Phos 6x you can continue to give it to him. NP is NOT a drug and is very safe in use both for him and you, if you wish to reduce weight at 1kg per WEEK and that, very safely.

  202. Megan says:

    My 9 week old son was diagnosed with acid reflux 5 weeks ago. He was first on Zantac for almost 2weeks with no relief then switched to Prilosec and has had some relief. I tried everything I could before turning to the meds, but nothing seemed to help. I have eliminated everything that could bother him from my diet. I keep him elevated around the clock. I exclusively breast feed every 2-3 hours even through the night and I only offer one breast per feed. I have used essential oils and tried camomile tea. But all of this and he still has episodes. He doesn’t spit up much, so weight gain has not been an issue, but he screams and cries in pain after eating and sometimes during. He chokes and gurgles. He arches his back and stiffens out his little body. What do you recommend?

    • Joe says:

      I can see that your 9 month old baby has been subjected to many powerful PPI drugs which have failed to help him. All PPI drugs have been accepted by the FDA as being dangerous to adults when used in the long term and I shudder to think of the damage that they can do to innocent babies. Do a search on Google under “The danger of PPI drugs”

      Please study my therapy copied below and I am confident that your baby will be all smiles in a few hours after you start on my therapy below which I have prescribed for hundreds of babies and which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.

      You will give baby half a tablet dissolved in milk a few minutes before every feed and the balance half immediately after a feed but you will not exceed a total of 6 tablets (12 halves) in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after every feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby. You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over 2 years old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give the MMR Vaccine in One shot as there is plenty of evidence on the Web of severe side effects which can result. You are advised to give it in 3 separate shots if you must do so, after baby is 2 years old.

      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.

      You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby if you start on my therapy.

        Just to clarify my little guy is only 9 weeks, not months. Is the treatment/dosage still the same?

          I have prescribed Nat Phos 6x which you will give as prescribed by giving half tablet before and the balance half immediately after but both dissolved in water or milk.

          This is the standard dosage for babies irrespective of age.
          Give it as prescribed and report response in 48 hours.

      The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.

      You will give baby half a tablet dissolved in milk a few minutes before every feed and the balance half immediately after a feed but you will not exceed a total of 6 tablets (12 halves) in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after every feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby. You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over 2 years old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give the MMR Vaccine in One shot as there is plenty of evidence on the Web of severe side effects which can result. You are advised to give it in 3 separate shots if you must do so, after baby is 2 years old.

      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.

      Report progress in 24 hours and as often as you wish on this thread.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby if you start on my therapy.

    I apologize for addressing you by given name. Thank you for your response. My baby is on formula at the moment and I am not breastfeeding. Is the therapy still the same? Thank you.

    • Joe says:

      Yes it is.

      I hope you realize that you cannot possibly replace Breast Milk with Formula.
      It is possible that Baby is reacting to the Formula but it may be too late today to change.

      • Gi says:

        Thank you very much. I will report back in 24hours. I already gave her the first dose. I think it is too early to tell if there is improvement. Thank you.

  206. Gi says:

    Doctor, baby developed a rash on face after third dose. Could it be she reacted to lactose in nat phos? Baby is diagnosed with milk/soy allergy. Thank you

    • Joe says:

      Your baby may pose a difficult case to solve if as you state she has reacted to the lactose in the tablet of NP6x.
      Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose will help to allay the milk allergy and also reinforce the action of NP.

      You will make it as per instructions below and give half teaspoonful, twice daily.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Get Nux Vomica 30c in the standard pellets and insert just 6 pellets into a 500ml bottle of Spring Water.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Shake the bottle hard before you give baby half teaspoonful twice daily.

      You will stop the Nux Vomica as soon as you find that baby is OK but you will continue the Nat Phos for as long as you feel that it is needed. NP is NOT a drug and is absolutely safe in use for long periods.

      I hope you realize that this is another unnecessary scenario that is due to your using Formula instead of Breast Milk.

      Report progress in 48 hours.

    My 6 week old daughter spits up a lot and sometimes it seems more like she is throwing up because it is more than just a small amount. She had been having milk come out her nose every other day or so but seeems to be less lately. It sounds like she has wet burps as well. Sometimes after throwing up in the night it sounds like milk is in her nose and gurgling in her throat. Someone said she may have reflux so I çhecked it out online but she is not fussy all the time. When she is fussy i can calm her down quickly by picking her up and if that doesn’t work I can stand and jostle her a little and she stops crying. She is fussy often enough that I feel I don’t get a lot done. We found she prefers being on her belly so during the day a lot of times I lay her on her stomach till she falls asleep and then roll her onto her back. A lot of times after rolling her over she will wake and fuss so I put her back on her stomach again till she falls asleep. Sometimes we do this about 3 times till she will stay asleep on her back. Does this sound like reflux to you? Do you think she would be a candidate for the Nat Phos 6x? Thanks for your help.

      • Tara says:

        After I feed my baby do I burp first and then give the other half of the pill or give the pill and then burp? Sometimes she will not always burp. Is there any way to get her to burp better than patting her and rubbing her back? I will see if I can get Nat Phos 6x locally but if not I will order online so it will take a few days to get. We had already decided not to give her any immunizations till she is at least 4 and then if we give her any they will be spread out. Do you recommend not immunizing kids at all? Also what is the benefit of waiting till 8 months to give solid food and is baby cereal and baby food what you would consider solid food? Which foods do you suggest to avoid for me that can cause distress to my baby? Thank you for all the time you spend helping us mothers.

        • Joe says:

          Give the half tablet dissolved in milk or water and burp in about 5 minutes after.

          It will take too long for me to explain the danger of vaccinating babies under 2 years but you can do a search on Google.

          A baby’s digestive process is not ready for solids of any type till after 8 months and you will see the reaction if you experiment with them before this time. This includes cereal. I cannot give you a diet chart but you will observe that certain food and drink you consume is not tolerated by baby as your milk will be affected by them.

          I hope that you too are taking Nat Phos 6x and have observed the drop in your weight.

          • Tara says:

            Thanks for responding. I will start taking it myself too once I get it. It said I should get between Sept 3-9. I don’t really need to lose weight but it won’t hurt to lose a little. Thanks for the clarification about solid foods.

          • Tara says:

            I have been giving my daughter and I the Nat Phos. The first 2 days were better the second 2 not so much but the one time she had frozen breast milk from before I started taking the pills. The last couple days have been better with her only spitting up none to about 2 times. Sometimes it was up to 12 times a day before. Last night she had mucus in her throat like what Victoria said about. Hopefully she gets over that quickly.

            • Joe says:

              Your baby seems to be making good progress in just 4 days on my Nat Phos therapy.
              You will continue the therapy and she should hopefully be able to do without any in a few weeks from now.

  208. Nancy says:

    My 9 year old is suffering from horrible reflux/ heartburn. She has been on omeprazole for quite some time. I am interested in starting your treatment. I am concerned about what will happen if I stop the omeprazole because I’ve read many sad accounts of stopping it, especially suddenly. Advice? Do I wean her? How?

  209. Victoria Granados says:

    My 7 weeks 5 days baby old daughter spits up a lot and sometimes it seems more like she is throwing up because it is more than just a small amount. She had been having milk come out her nose every other day or so but seeems to be less lately. She has wet burps as well. She started to have nasal congestion that makes her gurgle and choke during the day and also at night. She is breastfed and eats every hour only from one side for about 4/5 minutes. The pediatrician prescribed Ranitidine 0.5 ml twice a day. She has been taking it for a week now and I don’t see any changes. What advice could you please give me? Thank you very much for your help.

    Hello Sir, I’m happy to have stumbled upon your website. I’m wondering if this remedy will help with my one month old sons gas. He has gas constantly. We’ve eliminated dairy, have had chiropractic care, gripe water and gas drops. I hate to see him in pain. Thank you.

    Hello Mr. Delivera. I have an 8 month old daughter that suffers from silent reflux. The doctors prescribed Zantac about a month ago and I immediately saw results. However, the symptoms worsened after a couple of days. The pediatrician then prescribed nexium but I was reluctant to try another medication before seeking homeopathic remedies. I came across your site and read so many positive reviews. I decided to give it a try before consulting with you due to how desperate I was (maybe a bad call from my part). Anyhow, based off of what I read from what you recommended other people that had similar experiences, I began giving my daughter nat phos 6x 5 times a day after a meal. I took nat phos 6x and arnica 30c. I saw significant improvement for a week and a half- no spitting up, no reflux, no discomfort. All of a sudden the symptoms have returned. It’s been two weeks and three days that she’s been on this therapy. What should I do? Thank you in advance.

    • Joe says:

      Glad to note that you have used my therapy with Nat Phos 6x to help baby and although she first improved she later regressed after a few days, with the previous symptoms returning.

      It seems to me that Baby is not responding to the Nat Phos 6x alone and it is time to add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose to reinforce its action.
      You will make it as per instructions below and give half teaspoonful, twice daily.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Get Nux Vomica 30c in the standard pellets and insert just 6 pellets into a 500ml bottle of Spring Water.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Shake the bottle hard before you give baby half teaspoonful twice daily.

      You will stop the Nux Vomica as soon as you find that baby is OK but you will continue the Nat Phos for as long as you feel that it is needed. NP is NOT a drug and is absolutely safe in use for long periods.

    Hello,
    Thank you so much for you website, information and help.
    My baby is four weeks old and I noticed the symptoms of reflux two and a half weeks ago. I have eliminated dairy, gluten, soy, eggs, nuts, and many vegetables and fruit in trying to figure out her trigger foods.
    I recently purchased Nat Phos 6x. Am I correct in understanding that I need to start her on half a tablet after each feed and if I don’t see improvement to up that to one full tablet, not to exceed six in one day? And I too need to be taking two tablets, three times a day as well? How long should we both take the Nat Phos 6x? I read else where that it shouldn’t be taken long term, but would like your direction on that.
    Thank you so much for your help,
    Kimberly

    • Joe says:

      I am simplpy amazed at the number of mothers who visit my Website for help with their babies who present Baby GERD. Your baby at just 4 weeks with reflux is rare as this occurs with babies who are older with the majority being treated with the dangerous PPI drugs like Zantac, Prevacid and others, all equally ineffective and what is more, ruled as dangerous by the FDA for adults but are given to babies who do not respond when a stronger dose is usually prescribed.

      I hope that my therapy aka “Joepathy” will help your baby.
      The dose is a whole tablet given in half before and the balance after a feed

      The PPI drugs prescribed by your paediatrician are of no avail and are DANGEROUS for babies. The FDA has ruled them as such, not me. Omeprazole is another of these drugs and you have already observed that it is useless.

    Hi
    Thanks for your reply she doesn’t respond to nat phos 6x she still has this gas issues even though she will take one burp right after feeding or in 5 to 10 min then next in 30 min then next in 1 hour then another one and if she doesn’t take total of 5 burps she is not ready for next feeding even after 6 hours she will drink only 2 oz
    Can I give her colic calm together with nat phos 6
    And you saying that it won’t reduce my baby weight thank god
    I’m feeding her formula she doesn’t accept bottle every 2 hours minimum of 4 to 6 hours because of gas n reflux problem
    Plz help
    What should I give her for her burps I’m already giving her your remedy
    After each feeding sometimes half tablet sometimes one tab
    Or can I give her carom and cumin seed water
    Or colic calm with nat phos 6x
    Plz tell me what to do
    So upset so depressed

    • Joe says:

      If your baby does not respond to Nat Phos 6x it is obvious that you must change the brand of the milk powder you are giving her as she seems to be allergic to what you are given her now.

      Nat Phos 6x has been used by thousands of mothers for their babies and you can read their comments on my Website.

      You will have to give the Nat Phos 6x for at least 2 days before you condemn it as not being effective, as you have used it for just a few hours.

      Your baby is your own and you are free to give her whatever you wish.
      You do not have to seek my permission to do so.

      If you feel that Baby is not responding to the Nat Phos 6x alone you may add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose to reinforce its action.

      You will make it as per instructions below and give half teaspoonful, twice daily.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Get Nux Vomica 30c in the standard pellets and insert just 6 pellets into a 500ml bottle of Spring Water.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Shake the bottle hard before you give baby half teaspoonful twice daily.

      You will stop the Nux Vomica as soon as you find that baby is OK but you will continue the Nat Phos for as long as you feel that it is needed. NP is NOT a drug and is absolutely safe in use for long periods.

      You will STOP the Colic Calm you are given her as we do not know what its formula is.

      Report progress in 48 hours.

    Hello Sir.
    I have a 3 month old baby girl and i have been giving her zantac but generic name for it is rantandine since she was 1 month old as she has silent reflux and it seems to not be working and ill do anything to help her as she is in pain after every feeding and just in pain period. Well she is formula fed and is on enfamil A.R which is a formula that already comes with added rice startch to thicken it and it is just getting her constipated i came across your remedy Nar Phos and am in need of directions on how to use with a anti reflux formula and if i can just stop her right away on the medication and start your remedy?

    • Joe says:

      I cannot understand the reason why your baby was prescribed Enfamil:
      “she is formula fed and is on enfamil A.R which is a formula that already comes with added rice startch to thicken it”

      You can consider your baby as being fortunate as you have identified my Website where I have treated hundreds of babies with my therapy aka “Joepathy” where I prescribe Nat Phos 6x which acts by stimulating Peristalsis and thereby inhibits reflux in both babies and adults (GERD) which is perhaps the most effective and safe remedy to cure Reflux in babies and GERD in adults. I shall copy my default therapy below and would request you to change over to the standard Enfamil formula without the rice starch which you have observed is causing even more distress to your 3 month old infant.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed for hundreds of babies and which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.

      You will give baby half a tablet dissolved in milk a few minutes before every feed and the balance half immediately after a feed but you will not exceed a total of 6 tablets (12 halves) in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after every feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby. You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over 2 years old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give the MMR Vaccine in One shot as there is plenty of evidence on the Web of severe side effects which can result. You are advised to give it in 3 separate shots if you must do so, after baby is 2 years old.

      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby if you start on my therapy.

      • Anna says:

        Thanks and yeah they just told me too give her that formula since its already thinkened cause it would sit at the bottom of her stomach so she wont spit up as much so the acid wont come up and i just fed her this morning and gave her 1 tablet in a little bit of water.

        • Joe says:

          Suggest you follow my instructions about giving baby half tablet before and the balance after a feed as many mothers have confirmed that this is the most effective way to treat baby with my therapy.

    Hello Sir, my daughter is currently 6 weeks old (8.5lb) and was diagnosed with GERD at 4 weeks old . She was vomiting after feeds and then had loss of appetite as a result. The doctor prescribed her Xantac and it has worked well for her, she does not vomit any longer and the reflux is at bay for the most part as she still has small amounts of back arching and wet burps. However my wife and I do not want her on a PPI for the obvious reasons. Our baby is solely formula fed, Earths Best Sensitive, as my wife was not able to produce enough milk, and yes, we tried most natural remedies to stimulate production. She is also receiving probiotics daily. I already purchased the Nat Phos 6x and Vomica 30c but have not started either as I would like your advice on the best approach. As soon as I hear from you, we will begin with your recommendations. I appreciate your time, thank you!

    • Joe says:

      I note from your IP address that you live in Wichita, where it will be just before midnight at the moment.

      It is a pity that your wife gave up on feeding her breast milk and this can be rectified in 48 hours if she takes Arnica 6c in the Wet dose thrice daily, made as per instructions below.

      I note that you have studied my therapy and have already got Nat Phos 6x and Nux Vomica 30c. Do not however use the Nux V right now as it is potentized Strychnine and is best reserved for use on a SOS basis.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy(Arnica 6c) is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Ethanol / Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

    Hi Mr.Joe, My baby girl has reflux since she was 4 weeks old she refuses the bottle arc back and has difficulty swallowing her formula, she makes bubbles on her saliva, dosen’t nap during the day at night she sleeps good but when she gets up to eat she arches and refuses to eat then she falls sleep and eats her bottle but takes at least 1 hour for 3oz that happens during the day too she hiccup a lot. At 6 weeks they put her on ranitidine 15mg. 3 times a day but after few day i didn’t see any resolts kept her on it for about 2weeks she vomited cupple time something she wasn’t doing before and she fusses also in the morning she has stuffy nose and sore throat and cough i think it got worst with the med because the main problem was she was refussing to eat and arching but after feeding she used to be ok. And after reading your page over and over again i decided to give her nap phos 6x and stop ranitidine. its been 2day i give her one tablet after every feed she gets 7 feeds in 24 hours so at her 3pm and 6pm i just give her half tablet no more than 6 a day i seen some improvement she dosent refuses or arches too much during the day feeds but at night and morning she does and she still  has sore throw and stuffy nose in the morning and cough. She still bobbles her saliva and spit up. Also in the afternoon she gets fussy and still don’t nap but she sleeps good at night. i know is probably to soon to see a100%improvement. the 3rd day was the same but in the afternoon she started to be so fussy and cry a lot i got scared because is the first time she gets like that and at her 6pm feed she vomited all her bottle so bad i thoight may be the np isn’t doing anything but i decided to keep giving her np .just wanted to ask for your opinion to see if i should add nax vomica 30c. Sorry my eglish is so bad i hope you can understand me ..she is 2 months now.

    Respected Mr. Livera,

    My name is Anand, I live in Romania. I have a son who is 3 months old (exactly). We have observed that he is having silent reflux. We tried to give him espumisan drops that are mainly for cholic pain but somehow also work for reflux till some point but are not good enough. Our baby has the following problems :

    – While being breastfed he keeps moving away and arching his back

    – If he is put down on bed (even if inclined or flat), he many times end up having hiccups

    – Most of the time, after being burped while/after feeding, he is very very unsettled with pain. Sometimes it is pain because of gas or reflux burning feeling I suppose

    – He has a lot of saliva

    – His poop smells recently like vinegar (more sourish)

    – His keeps waking up very easily and sleeps with very difficulty (because of reflux, cholic pain)

    We also tried to give him Nexium. But as soon as we heard about Natrum Phos 6x we wanted to give a try. And tried to stop giving him Nexium completely. In romania we only have Nat. Phos. 6x in form of tablets, we only have pellets (sugar ball). Beside that we also have other things that might help but we do not know exactly in what way we should give the these medicines to have proper effect to improve our son’s condition. I have the following in home:

    – Natrium Phos. 6x (I hope it is same as Natrum Phos.)
    – Nux Vomica CH15
    – Colocynthis CH9
    – Lycopodium CH15
    – Formula 34

    So far we were dissolving 2 balls of Natrium Phos. 6x and 2 balls of Nux Vomica CH15 in 1ml water and giving our son every 4-6 hours. We did see some improvement but today after breast feeding all the milk came out and in evening he has been extremely unsettled and in pain.

    I would really appreciate if you could guide us about the doses and which medication in what manner should be given.

    I hope to hearing from you soon.

    Best regards,

      Nat Phos or Natrium Phosphoricum 6x is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may give baby 3 pellets each 3mm Ø before and another 3 pellets after a feed dissolved in milk and report results.

        Hello,

        We are willing to go ahead with your default therapy for Baby GERD.

        I apologize for my mistake in my previous message. In Romania we do not have X but we only have CH. We have – Natrium Phos. 9ch. I am not sure if CH is the same as X.

        Also we do not have tablets of Natrum Phos.

        Our son is being breastfed and nothing else. He is breast fed very often (per hour or an hour and a half)

        Considering that CH type, how should the doese of Nat. Phos. be?
        We have stopped all the other remedies.

        I hope to hear from you soon.

  227. Julie says:

    Hello Mr. De Livera,

    After some research, I suspect my 7 month old baby has silent reflux. Various forums have directed me here.

    My son is exclusively breastfed, and we have recently been giving him solids in very small portions. He has been unable to sleep more than 1 – 2 hours at a time at night. When he wakes up I would breastfeed him back to sleep. He would wake and then rub his face vigorously. If I hold him against my chest he would seem more comfortable, but still rub his face into my shoulder. For a few nights the only way I could get him to sleep was by holding him against me while I sat up in bed.

    Generally it seems that he is only comfortable when he is upright or nursing. As soon as we try to lie him down or if we rock him in a non-upright position he would cry. There have also been days/nights where he would refuse to nurse by arching his back.

    He is a very gassy baby, and has been having bowel movement (“BM”) issues for the past 2 months. The days between BMs have gradually increased, from every day, to every 2 days, and so on. The longest he’s been without a BM was 10 days, at which point we gave him a suppository.

    If my son does not actually have reflux, but we give him Nat Phos 6x according to your specifications, would that be harmful to him? Does it sound like he has reflux to you?

    Your advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Julie

    • Joe says:

      I note that you have read my therapy for Baby GERD and you have already given him Nat Phos 6x hopefully in the half dose before and after every feed.

      It is likely that he is not ready as yet for solids and suggest you stop them for a couple of months.

      I have never had a report of a 10 day delay in a BM and am glad that you inserted suppository. I have had reports of 6 days but never 10. 2-5 can be considered normal.

      Nat Phos 6x is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is absolutely safe in use for both Babies and Adults. Google the term.

      His gassiness will be fixed by the NP.

    Thank you
    Rebeca

    • Joe says:

      I had to check Laryngomalacia on Google to know what it was all about and it is no surprise that baby suffers from chronic GERD.

      My default therapy for baby GERD has helped unknown thousands of babies and I am not surprised that he does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x as it is the structure of his throat and neck that is responsible for his current problem which you described:
      “Since he was born he had problems with Gerd.He also has laryngomalacia which doesn t help him with reflux.He also has a cricked neck.”

      It is possible that you may have to consult a paediatric surgeon to help the multiple problems that your baby has been born with and all I can do is to hope and pray that my default therapy for Baby GERD can help him.

      Do not give him the standard drugs prescribed by doctors for Baby GERD which are all in the PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) group and all of which have been ruled as dangerous by the FDA. You can do a search on Google under “The danger of PPI drugs” to realise what other problems will be caused by these drugs.

      You can mail order the remedies in the Liquid Dilution from:

      Washington Homeopathic Products
      http://www.homeopathyworks.com
      1 800 336 1695

      You can also visit your local Health Food store for the remedies as it is very likely that they stock them in your city.

      Feel free to contact me for any advice which I shall be glad to give you both now and in the future.

    I have read the testimonies regarding your GERD cure. My daughter is 10 weeks old with silent reflux. My doctor has me mixing formula with my breast milk to thicken it to keep down. I want to try the Nat Phos 6x., however, she just received her vaccinations on 01/18. Can I try your therapy or do I have to wait? Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.

    • Joe says:

      I am simply amazed by the stupidity of doctors who:
      “has me mixing formula with my breast milk to thicken it to keep down.”
      He does not realise that thickening of your milk with formula will make a bad situation infinitely worse.

      My default therapy with Nat Phos 6x will stimulate Peristalsis and it will ensure that the excess acid that results in baby’s digestive process not functioning for a few more weeks is helped. What is more is that NP6x is absolutely safe in use as it is not a drug.

    Thank you very much for the advice. My daughter has been on the therapy for 5 days. I already see a drastic change. I no longer give her formula. She gets 4 ounces whereas before she could barely hold 2.5. I still get wet burps every now and then. I’m sure that will get better as I continue her on the therapy. The Nat Phos 6x has also corrected her constipation issues. Sometimes it’s a little watery though. Now I am just working on what I eat in my diet. I’m hoping that will decrease some of her phlem. I will keep you posted with how she is doing.

    • Joe says:

      Glad to learn that my therapy aka “Joepathy” has worked so very quickly.

      It is the Nat Phos that is the cause of her watery stool but this is a small price to pay for the improvement in her status. You may try to reduce the dose and see how she responds.

    My little one is doing better but still spits up after a feeding sometimes. Should I try the Nux Vomica?

    • Joe says:

      I would prefer that you do not give her the Nux V as she seemed to be doing OK with the Nat Phos alone.
      Nux Vomica in its raw state is the source of Strychnine which is a poison.
      The Homeopathic product is safe in use and is only to be used on a SOS basis.

      You will make it as per instructions below and give half teaspoonful, twice daily.

      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Get Nux Vomica 30c in the standard pellets and insert just 6 pellets into a 500ml bottle of Spring Water.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Shake the bottle hard before you give baby half teaspoonful twice daily.

      You will stop the Nux Vomica as soon as you find that baby is OK but you will continue the Nat Phos for as long as you feel that it is needed. NP is NOT a drug and is absolutely safe in use for long periods.

    Hello Dr.Joe De Livera. I am convinced that my son who is 4 month old and weighted 16lb on 20th of Jan has silent GERD. He makes gulping sounds and wiggles when feeding,chokes,frequently coughs,hiccups, belching and swallowing after an hour after feeding and does it for another hour gagging and aggressively sucking/his hand. His tummy makes gurgling,rumbling sounds and does not burb most of the time even thought I hold him for 30 min to an hour afrter every feed. He is exclusively breastfeed and he feeds between 8 and 10 times. He goes to sleep between 12 and 2 am in the morning, wakes up throug the night to feed and sleeps well in the morning until mid day, after that he hardly sleeps and is restless. He used to cry and arches his back/ pulls his knees between 10 pm and 2 am but now hi does it also throug the day. I noticed that he had several 6-8hrs sleep in the night when he feels better. I don’t give him any medications only lycopodium 30c or pulsatilla30c when he cry because it settles him until next feed. I started giving him 1 tablet nat phos 6x soft tablets 3 times a day ( I put them straight in his mount because they dissolve fast I hope that I have not done anything bad) but it does not make any differens. My son was born by c cection at 37weeks and 3 days because I developed obstetric holestasis. I also had gestational diabetes and anemia when pregnant and constant heartburn and sickness until the birth. Just a week ago I was diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis also I raise my baby on my own because my partner does not help and had been very nasty and shouting to me sins middle of my pregnancy. He pushed me to vaccinate my son and give him medications but I refuse. I am not on any medications because I refused due to breastfeeding my son. I’ve just started taking pure liquid zeolite yesterday to help rid of toxins. I would be very great-full to you if you could help us as you are my last hope. I am sending you ligth and love. Thank you so much

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed for hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.

      You will give baby half a tablet dissolved in milk a few minutes before every feed and the balance half immediately after a feed but you will not exceed a total of 6 tablets (12 halves) in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after every feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby. You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over 2 years old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give the MMR Vaccine in One shot as there is plenty of evidence on the Web of severe side effects which can result. You are advised to give it in 3 separate shots if you must do so, after baby is 2 years old.

      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby if you start on my therapy. This includes the remedies you listed below and you will NOT give baby the Nat Phos tablets dry as there is a possibility that he can CHOKE on it.

      You stated:

      ” I don’t give him any medications only lycopodium 30c or pulsatilla30c when he cry because it settles him until next feed.

        Thank you so much for answering so fast. I’ve been giving him nat phos 6x as advised and so far I can not see any improvement. What would you advise me as a next step? He is also teething at the moment. Can I give him Teetha sachet which contains 6c homeopathic potency of Chamomilla or it will jeopardise the reflux treathment? Thank you for your help. Light and love.

  235. Vina says:

    Looking for advice for my baby. She is 6 weeks old and has shown more signs of reflux for the last 3 weeks. She is exclusively breastfeeding and we are using the ‘baby-led’ method (no defined schedule). No vaccinations. Her first few weeks of life only presented the symptom of fussiness at night. I am currently administering an infant probiotic powder to her daily mixed into breast milk. I am also on a whole foods diet sans processed foods, sugars, and dairy.

    No formal diagnosis. Current symptoms include: Frequent very short feeds (cannot fill up efficiently), frequent burping (I burp her a couple times during each feeding), frequent spitting up, flatulence, bloating, random bursts of fussiness, congestion slightly during day but more severe at night which inhibits breathing and a good sleep, facial acne.

    After reading most of this thread, I gather that you recommend Nat Phos 6x alone at first in an effort to remain conservative. I have a few questions regarding Nat Phos and the other similar remedies for reflux/GERD: does the body ever develop dependancy on these remedies or do these remedies facilitate a permanent correction of malfunctioning upper digestion? I understand Nat Phos increases the speed of digestion? How else does Nat Phos work in the aide of digestion? It has always been in my nature to know things of this nature more thoroughly. I am familiar with the school of thought that many people have inadequate amounts of stomach acid which then never signals the esophageal valve to close, causing heartburn/ reflux up through the open valve. Therefore reducing acid in those scenarios would be an erroneous move.

    Aside from all the questions I am still proceeding with purchasing this remedy (Hylands brand) based on other people’s stories and successes. Time is of the essence for me as my baby’s symptoms at night are the most distressing. Since I am in a location that does not have these homeopathic remedies via a physical location, I need to order all products online (which mean enduring the wait times for shipment).

    In what situation do you recommend Arnica for the mother to take from the very start? If this product is for my case, I would like to order that as well in a timely fashion. In the event Arnica is appropriate for my case, could you please let me know if this source of correct strength?: http://hawaii-pharm.com/shop/heart-health/product/397-arnica-arnica-montana-liquid-extract. I am new to the strength notation for homeopathy (6c, 60c, etc). The already prepared liquid remedies such as the one I linked earlier would be very convenient for busy mothers like myself if they are similar to what you recommend but they are largely without indication of the strength.

    Please let me know what you recommend and please advise on the dosage for Nat Phos since some of your recommendations are on a case by case basis.

    Thank you for your time and help,
    Vina

      • Melissa says:

        Thank you so much Dr. Livera. We have stopped the PPI and have been using the Nat phos 6x for about a day and a half now. Baby still seems to be in pain from her reflux. I have read that stopping the PPI can cause painful “acid rebound”, should I give it a few more days or should I try to add another therapy?
        I also wanted to ask if it is OK to dissolve the Nat phos tablet in a few drops of purified water rather than milk as I don’t have much pumped breast milk left.

        Thank you so much,
        Melissa

        • Joe says:

          I presume that you are following the therapy outlined in my prescription and you would have given baby half tablet before and the balance after a feed.

          I note from your question that you do not seem to have read and understood my therapy and you will notice that your questions have already been answered.

          • Melissa says:

            Thank you Dr Livera,
            Yes I have been following the protocol just as described (half tablet before feed and the rest after the feed up to 6 tablets a day). I have been dissolving in a little milk. My question is since I don’t have much pumped breast milk left, can I use water to dissolve the tablet prior to giving to baby?
            Also, you mentioned to contact you again if the nat phos alone wasnt working, but how long should I wait? It does not seem to be working alone at this time.

            Thank you!
            Melissa

            • Joe says:

              You did not report your baby’s response to my therapy and this is important for me to instruct you further.

              Answering your question, you can certainly dissolve the half tablet in a few drops of water which you can insert on baby’s tongue to ensure that he does not spit it out. There is no objection to your using more water but it just depends on baby.

  238. Michelle says:

    Hello Mr. De Livera,

    Thank you so much for your posts they have been very informative. My baby will be 8 weeks old on Monday and has been diagnosed with acid reflux and prescribed Zantac twice a day for it. I would like to try to relieve him naturally. I started giving him 1/2 a tablet of nat phos after feeds and only 1 dose of the Zantac. He was on this for about 2 weeks. He seemed better and happier, but was straining more for pooping so I stopped the nat phos and took him back to the Dr, who increased his dose of Zantac. I did not find this page until recently and had been going off of other posts I had seen of yours on ab homeopathy.com, which stated to only give the nat phos after the feeding. My baby seems to be reverting back to his fussiness before I started the Nat phos, fussy after feeding and fussy at night. Can not nap for longer than 1 hour and wakes up making the reflux noise as if something is coming back up. My questions are:
    1. Should I stop the Zantac completly
    2. How long can the baby be on this remedy with out damage? He was at 2 weeks, not sure if he can be on it longer than that.
    3. How would I know when to stop it, and dose I need reduce the dose gradually.

    I appreciate any insight you can provide and appreciate your help.

    Dear Dr Delivera,

    Thank you for such valuable information. My little one is 3.5 months old and she has developed a silent reflux. These symptoms started when she was about 2months+. Here are the symptoms.

    1. She refuses(cries frantically) to take the bottle when she is awake. Even though we know she is hungry(she wants to grab her hands in her mouth and tries to eat the burp cloth/bib), if we distract her and feed her, she ends up taking only 1-2 ounces in about half hour.

    2. If we sleep feed her, she takes about 3-4oz of milk. Sometimes she finishes in 10 min and sometimes she takes about 45 min.

    3. Her total intake when she was a month old was between 22-26oz a day and now that she is 3.5 months, it averages to about 18-20 oz a day. Thus, it has significantly reduced.

    4. Many times she keeps playing in her playgym while lying on her back happily and then suddenly she will start crying, spits out water like substance or curd like and we would need to hold her upright. She will keep crying and would pass few small burps and the crying stops followed by sleep.

    5. She cries on Tummy time in just few minutes.

    6. She is sleeping nicely during the night (7pm – 7am). We sleep feed her at 7pm and 10pm and then at 5 am in the morning.

    7. During day time she does not sleep much(15 min cat naps) and thus do not eat well at all since she is mostly awake. She is lot better during the evening times and takes food much easily. Most of the days she finishes only about 12oz from morning 5AM – evening 7pm. Then we sleep feed her 4oz during both 7pm and 10 pm feed and thus completing her daily 18-20oz.

    Current Medications. – Vitamin D drops and NatPhos 6x

    Doctor mentioned that we should start her on Zantac(on 2.5 months checkup for refusing to feed) but we did not wanted to do that. We stumbled upon your post and started to try NatPhos.

    Started on March 1st, it has been about a week. We are sometimes giving her 1/2 before feed and 1/2 after feed, sometimes when she is too cranky and we cannot give her medicine via syringe, we dissolved a tablet in the bottle itself and feed her. Other times at night when sleep feeding her, we give her 1 tablet after the feed.

    As a mother I started taking NatPhos 3 times a day around March4th. Since I am also taking Prenatal Vitamins, I am not sure if I should stop taking my supplements etc. while I am taking NatPhos.

    Progress after starting NatPhos. – We have seen that she was a little less cranky and crying for few days but her food intake did not increase. Now from March 6th, she is still sleep feeding and cries if we lay her down. Since last 2 days Nat Phos is not helping her much. We are not sure if we need to alter the dosage or as you suggested in couple of posts to supplement with few other medicines too.

    Please help since we are in a lot of distress.

    Regards

    Good day Dr. Joe. My son is 7months old and he brings out his food a lot and he’s skinny because though his stomach area seems larger than the rest of his body. Recently, he’s started to sit but every time he sits for more than a minute he brings out his food making it tough to practice. He’s been like this since birth but now its getting worse. I started him on solids when he turned six months and he seemed okay but now the reflux has worsened. Bowel movement is also very hard for him. Before I went back to work, he found it hard to continue breastfeeding, he would turn away especially when the milk starts flowing well. Now my milk production has declined because he doesnt suck it more..only short periods at night. I really want him to breast feed better. he’s so skinny I’m worried for him…he takes the formula and solids well but will bring out a lot of it about six times after each feed. Now he doesn’t want to eat much again. And he always breathes like his nose is blocked, he eyes also tear alot and some sticky stuff too from his eyes and i guess its because of the constant blocked nose. I tried using nose drops but it didnt work. I guess if we can cure the reflux the nose issue will be solved too. I hope. Please how can you help me. Thank you for how you have helped a lot of babies. God bless you.

      I forgot to add, he’s on vitamin c drops and cod liver oil.
      Thank you.

    • Joe says:

      He is NOT ready for solids at 6 months and you must stop all solids to enable him to drink your breast milk. You can refrigerate your milk after pumping it and he can be fed your stored milk when you are not around.

      His reflux will be arrested and his constipation will be stabilized with your milk. If you are not lactating enough, you can take Arnica 6c in the Wet dose twice daily to stimulate it. His nose is blocked due to the acid reflux which hits his delicate nasal membranes. I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD and he should be OK in 24 hours.

      Also STOP the Vitamin C as this is far too acidic for babies. Cod liver oil is not indicated for babies either. Suggest you change your pediatrician ASAP as he is just fooling around with your baby.

    Hello Dr. Delivera. I was hoping you could help me out with my two month old daughter. Around 3 weeks old, she started to cry when I would nurse her, pull away and latch back on. As time went on she ate less and less. She was born 6lb, 6oz and it took her a month to gain back to her birth weight. Around 6 weeks old her pediatrician admitted her to the hospital which there they put a feeding tube in her nose and labeled her as failure to thrive. I believe she has reflux but am not sure if anything else could cause her this. She has since been gaining weight but still not eating more than half an oz by mouth every three hours. The meds they gave her for reflux I am not giving because I don’t want to risk it. I have read all these posts and am waiting for nat phos to arrive in the mail. During the hospital stay they didn’t allow me to nurse her only pump because they needed to monitor the amount she was eating, since then she doesn’t want to nurse at all, only bottle, I still pump and supplement with formula. Do you think there is a chance for her to get better and eat on her own? I am very skeptical of the tube and fear she will never learn to eat if its in, and maybe she will have a dependency on it. Is there anything you can recommend?

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby if you start on my therapy.

  242. Tanya says:

    Thank you for responding! Since the nat phos will reduce my weight, will it affect her weight too?

    • Joe says:

      I have prescribed Nat Phos 6x to hundreds of babies on my Website since 2005 and none of their mothers has ever reported any weight loss of their babies.

      The mothers usually report a reduction of their own weight by 1kg per week.

      You can verify if NP affects your own baby by weighing her often and reporting any loss to me.

      Have you given her the Nat Phos 6x as prescribed and if so how did she respond?

      • Tanya says:

        Yes I gave her the nat phos. It seemed to make her a little sleep and a little more calm after the first use. Also she seemed to want to eat with a little more enthusiasm, still half an oz though. After that time though she seems to be the same as before. Its been almost 24 hours since I started and she is behaving the same way as before I would say. Definitely not eating more She threw up once, not sure if its because she gagged on the bottle or from the nat phos.

        • Tanya says:

          Hello again. The nat phos seemed to help her for a day or two and now its not helping as much. I’ve been giving her 6 tablets in 24hours. What should I do next? Also do you have any suggestions on how to help her eat from the bottle more? I feel she may have an oral aversion.

          • Joe says:

            You first consulted me on March 15 and you have given baby the Nat P 6x for just 4 days. Please be patient and observe the improvement in your baby who is just a few weeks old.

            Some babies are born with digestive systems that cannot handle the digestion of even mother’s milk and you can consider yourself as being fortunate to consult me as this remedy Nat Phos 6x is my own discovery to treat both infant and adult GERD.

            Give it a few more weeks and report baby’s progress after it helps her stomach to digest your milk.

            I note that you are anxious to start her on the bottle but this will make her GERD even more pronounced.
            Your Breast Milk is best for her.

            • Tanya says:

              I will give it a few more weeks. But I can only give her the bottle, as when we were in the hospital, they didn’t let me breastfeed and after that she doesn’t want the breast anymore at all. She only takes a little bit from the bottle and the rest we have to put through the feeding tube that goes through her nose into her stomach. I know that the tube makes her reflux and gagging worse, but that is the only was she can get fed because she only takes 10 ml of the bottle every time, sometimes nothing at all.

              • Joe says:

                It seems obvious to me that you cannot continue to feed her through the GI Tube as you are doing today. I am presuming that you are giving her your Breast Milk and not Formula. Please confirm and state the reason why your doctor started her on this protocol.

                You have not reported on how she is progressing today after you started her on the Nat Phos 6x therapy and would like to have a detailed report on how you are doing so today.

                • Tanya says:

                  I am giving her formula because my milk already dried up since she wasn’t nursing anymore. Her pediatrician admitted her to the hospital because she wasn’t gaining enough weight and was refusing to breastfeed after a few seconds of nursing. In the hospital they labeled her as failure to thrive and put the gi tube in. She still continues to only eat 10-15 ml on her own in one time and then refuses the bottle.
                  She has been throwing up a couple times a day, I’m not too sure what it could be from, we recently changed formula as well. She seems to be more congested and I still hear how the milk comes up and she swallows it back down. This happens quite often. Maybe 3-4 times an hour give or take. Last night she projectile vomited in her sleep which is rare for her as before she would never throw anything up, it would just be silent reflux.

                • Tanya says:

                  Its been a week and a half that I have started using nat phos. She still doesn’t eat anything by herself, only through tube. We are going to take the tube out for a week, she may have an oral aversion. Should I give her nux vomica as well? If she continues not to eat anything by mouth?

    Dear Dr.Delivera,
    My son is 3 months now, he was diagnosed with silent reflux, and ultra sound report shows that milk is comming up when he feeds.

Please let me know what i should do for me. Thank so much for your help.

      Your baby suffers from Reflux of the milk he feeds on as his digestive system is not quite ready to do so. The majority of babies are able to digest breast milk but a few do not and yours is one of them. My therapy using Nat Phos 6x is by far the safest and most effective Homeopathic remedy to help your baby and I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed for hundreds of babies which I hope will help your baby too.

      The remedy is Nat Phos 6x which is a Biochemic Cell Salt and is NOT a drug. It is absolutely safe in use and you may like to look it up on Google.

      You will give baby half a tablet dissolved in milk a few minutes before every feed and the balance half immediately after a feed but you will not exceed a total of 6 tablets (12 halves) in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after every feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby. You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over 2 years old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give the MMR Vaccine in One shot as there is plenty of evidence on the Web of severe side effects which can result. You are advised to give it in 3 separate shots if you must do so, after baby is 2 years old.

      You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby if you start on my therapy.

        Dear Dr.delivera,
        I have been giving my son 5-6 tablet a day as you directed, on first day he showed a bit better, he could sleep 4 hours straight at night. However, on 2nd day until now not much improvement, he couldnt sleep on his back for more thab 30min, He still has multiple burping even after feeding 1-2h, sometime spits up.
        Please advice me on what to do next

        Thanks so much for your help

        • Joe says:

          It seems to me that Baby is not responding to the Nat Phos 6x alone and it is time to add Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose to reinforce its action.
          You will make it as per instructions below and give half teaspoonful, twice daily.

          The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

          Get Nux Vomica 30c in the standard pellets and insert just 6 pellets into a 500ml bottle of Spring Water.
          Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
          Shake the bottle hard before you give baby half teaspoonful twice daily.

          You will stop the Nux Vomica as soon as you find that baby is OK but you will continue the Nat Phos for as long as you feel that it is needed. NP is NOT a drug and is absolutely safe in use for long periods.

          Report progress in 48 hours.

    Hello Dr. Livera,

    I have been following this thread for awhile. My baby is 8 weeks old and has been suffering with reflux for a few weeks. My milk never fully came in so I have to supplement with formula. I have chosen a goat’s milk formula since it has more natural ingredients with the brand I chose. She doesn’t get much milk from me, but I give her what I can. She probably gets an ounce from me for each feeding. I will pump a little less than .05 ounce. My question is, is it possible the Nat phos 6x could make symptoms worse? I started her on half a pill on Thursday and did not notice any symptoms getting better so we did 1 whole pil with each feeding for the last 24 hours and it seems that her symptoms are worse. She will barley take any formula without crying and arching her back and refusing to eat. I also noticed she has been thrashing in her sleep more (shaking head side to side and kicking legs, arching back.) She will be asleep when this happens and last up to 2 hours. She is also not napping as well as she was before I started nas phos 6x. I will rock her to sleep for half an hour and watch her as the reflux comes up and wakes her back up. I have ordered the Nux vomica 30, but it is not scheduled to be delivered until the end of this month. I am not sure what to do since I would hope to see some improvement, but only seeing her worse than before. We also have her sleeping on a 30 degree angle. Any advice is appreciated on how to proceed or help her. I have also used some aloe vera juice to help some of her pain. 1/2 tsp.

    • Joe says:

      Arnica 6c in the Wet dose will stimulate your lactation problems. You will take it twice daily and report your response. Please note that this is NOT for baby.
      The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

      Order the remedy in the Ethanol / Alcohol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
      Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
      Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
      Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
      Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed for hundreds of babies and which I hope will help your baby too.

      I note that you have given just half tablet of NP6x but this is not sufficient for a dose. NP is not a drug and is absolutely safe in use.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after every feed.

  246. Erin K. says:

    Thanks for your reply Dr Delivera,

    In my last message, I stated that I started with 1/2 pill but moved to full pill and have not seen any positive improvements. Tonight, she would barely take any food and just kept arching her back. We put her down to bed (on an angle) and she screamed and cried in pain louder than I have ever heard her before. That is why I asked if there is a case that your method of Nat Phos 6x could make worse? Or when should I start to see improvement? Thursday afternoon we started her on Nat Phos, and now it is Sunday night and her symptoms have only gotten worse.

    You mentioned I could take the Nat Phos 6x, and Arnica 6c. Do you know if either are safe to take with the current hypothyroid medication I am on (synthroid)

    What do you advise for my daughter. We feel so bad for her and her pain, my husband just wants me to take her to the doctor to get on medication.

    Thanks so much.

    Erin

    • Joe says:

      “What do you advise for my daughter. We feel so bad for her and her pain, my husband just wants me to take her to the doctor to get on medication.”

      I have prescribed my Nat Phos 6x therapy which has helped literally thousands of babies to overcome their Baby GERD but according to you it is not helping.

      You are the parents and it is up to you to do what you feel is best for your baby.

  247. Erin K. says:

    “If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.”

    That is what you said in your first response to me. I advised to you that she is not responding and you didn’t give me another remedy as you promised and just said to do what we feel best. I do not feel best to give her prescriptions, we are just at a loss and don’t want her to be in pain.

    I would appreciate to hear your other remedy before writing me off. Please and thank-you.

    • Joe says:

      The reason why I did not prescribe the other remedy Nux Vomica 30c in the Wet dose is because your baby is an infant at 8 weeks of age. Nat Phos 6x is not a drug and is absolutely safe for babies and I hope that your baby will snap out of her problems in the next 24 hours. You may however get Nux Vomica 30c in the standard pellets from your local supplier but you will not use it till I instruct you on how to do so.

      I do agree with you in your reluctance to use the standard PPI drugs which have all been classified by your FDA as being dangerous for adults when used in the long term and far worse for babies. Your pediatrician would have prescribed it as this is all that is available knowing fully well that your FDA has ruled it dangerous for adults for long term use.

      There is a possibility that your baby has a tongue tie and babies can present the same symptoms you describe with this problem which is corrected by snipping the tissue under the tongue. This is a simple operation but it must be done by a specialist to avoid any future problems for the baby in speech.

      You will have to consult a specialist to diagnose this problem.

  248. Erin says:

    Thanks for your response. She does not have a tongue tie because I had that checked when I was first having lactation problems. I had ordered the Nux Vomica per your advice to others, but you don’t think I should give that to her? How long should I continue with the Nat Phos before stopping. I am giving her 1 pill with each feeding. Half before and half after she eats.

    • Joe says:

      Let us evaluate her progress in 24 hours and you will NOT STOP the Nat Phos 6x as she will be lost without it.

      • Erin K. says:

        *24 hour update. Not much change. The feedings are still difficult, but a little bit better. She still arches her back and stops eating before she is full. She is also waking up from naps because of the acid coming up in her throat, and not sleeping well at night and thrashing around while she is asleep tossing her head back and forth and kicking her legs. This will last about 2 hours till she wakes up screaming then I give her aloe to soothe her throat.

        She seems to be constantly smacking her lips.
        I look forward to your reply and insight.

          • Erin K. says:

            Thank you for your reply. Is Nux Vomica 30c safe for an 8-week old baby? I only ask because you were hesitant to advise this before because of her age.

            I appreciate your time and patience.

        • Joe says:

          Quite frankly I would prefer not to prescribe it since she is an infant and it is because you were so anxious to ease her discomfort that I did so. Nux Vomica is potentized Strychnine and although it is very safe to be used in Homeopathy it still is derived from the poison Strychnine.

          You may like to know that my eldest son who is now 47 also suffered from the same acidity you described as a baby and I too have experienced the same trauma that you are undergoing today. I was not into Homeopathy at that time and was not able to help him to overcome baby GERD and he used to projectile vomit over my shoulder and SCREAM in agony.

          At that time there was no drug that could help my son and we suffered like you to bring him up to childhood. I would prefer that you follow my example for the next few days when your baby too will be OK soon.

    Sir, I have a baby boy 3 months old that was born 2 months early after I was in bed my while pregnancy with a subchrionic hemoraging and then my placenta abrupted … In febuary I took him to dr for a blue spell and they couldn’t find anything wrong so they said coukd be reflux and to have him sit up after feedings and for sleeping . He has always spit up after eating , he gains wheight fine , but spits up often even when not fed , not projectile though , but does have a stream here and there out the side of his mouth. He was hospitalized with RSV 2 weeks ago. The last 2 nights while sleeping more flat he was gasping for air his nose is still stuffy from being sick and last night he had bubbles coming out of mouth while gasping . I slept with him sitting up on my chest the last 2 nights after those episodes and he slept well. Do you have any ideas for me. Thanks for your time.. blessings

    • Joe says:

      Glad that you located my Website where you will read the many hundreds of babies I have treated for Baby GERD successfully.

      I do doubt your doctor’s diagnosis of RSV as it seems to me that baby suffers from Baby GERD which my therapy copied below will fix very quickly. It is very likely that she has inhaled some reflux which has irritated her lung/s and should pass away soon. Steam would help to soften the mucus in the lung which she can cough up. Try to keep her head lower than her body after the steam to promote draining the mucus with the residue of the reflux. You can use an electric kettle or jug with the lid open to humidify the air around baby and you must be with her to regulate the steam. Gentle tapping of her back with her head down lower than her chest will help drain the mucus.

      I shall copy my default therapy for Baby GERD which I have prescribed for hundreds of babies and which I hope will help your baby too.

    Dr. DeLivera,
    I just purchased the Nat Phos 6x for my 3 month old daughter Emma who is 12.4 pounds. Her silent reflux seems to be getting worse even though she is on Zantac and I do not want PPIs due to side effects. I exclusively breastfeed and she has sometimes refused to nurse and scream. Other times she will only nurse in a quiet environment or half asleep. I tried eliminating dairy for several weeks but it didn’t seem to help. I was going to start the half tablet with feedings but I just wanted to clarify that you recommend to stop zantac with your treatment, correct? Are probiotics ok to use? Thank you for your time and work you have put into this.

    Hi Dr. DeLivera
    I have a son of 5 and half months (6 kg) old and I live in Mozambique – Sofala.
    he started having the problem with 2 months old, he started refusing the breast feeding,so we started to give him bottle milk(nan)
    when he was 3 months old someday he was taking about 120 ml in all day, other days he was taking 450 ml per day. he didn’t gain any weight, he was 5.2 kg till 4 months, and loose about 400 grams, he started to refuses to take the bottle also, i had to feed him while he is sleeping but sometimes also in sleeping he was refusing, it was very difficult time.
    Only now the pediatrician diagnosis him with silent reflux and he prescribed has nexium and change milk to hypoallergenic milk , on the first week it was like a miracle because he started taking the milk normally and we were happy because he also increased the weight on 300g in one week, but after that the problem started again he started to refuse bottle again and reduce the quantity of milk he was taking 600ml per day now he takes 300 to 450 ml per day.
    I dont know what to do, please i need your help.

      You will give baby half a tablet dissolved in milk a few minutes before every feed and the balance half immediately after a feed but you will not exceed a total of 6 tablets (12 halves) in 24 hours.

      You may like to try to reduce the quantity of milk you give for each feed to enable baby’s digestion to stabilize. You will however feed more often. It is essential that you burp baby immediately after every feed.

      You will avoid eating all food that can cause any distress to baby. You must know that they are passed on to baby through your breast milk.

      It is best not to vaccinate Baby till s/he is over 2 years old as the after effects in some cases can add to the problems with GERD.
      Do not give the MMR Vaccine in One shot as there is plenty of evidence on the Web of severe side effects which can result. You are advised to give it in 3 separate shots if you must do so, after baby is 2 years old.

      Do not give Baby any solid food till s/he is over 8 months of age.

      You (the mother) will take Nat Phos 6x dose 2 tablets after each of 3 meals daily. The idea is that your milk will pass the effect to baby. You may like to know that Nat Phos 6x will help to reduce your weight by 1kg per week very safely.

      If you discover that baby does not respond to the Nat Phos 6x alone and this has occurred in a few cases, you will contact me again and I shall then prescribe another remedy to reinforce the action of Nat Phos 6x.

      You will stop all other drugs you may be giving baby if you start on my therapy.

    hi Dr. DeLivera
    Sorry i just need to know if giving him Nat Phos 6x it will help him to get back his appetite and gain the weight? Because he is very happy child. He dosnt cry.
    The problem that he has is:
    – he dont have appetite, he can stay more than 6 to 8 hours without accept to take the bottle
    – hiccups after every feeding,
    – fuss and show discomfort by fighting and pulling off the bottle away, – – pulling their feet up and arching their back every time i try to give him bottle.
    i tried a lot to give him very small quantity in small time. but some days he will not accept milk before 5 to 6 hours, i try to insist but he does not drink, he refuse the bottle.
    Sorry for my insistence, but i have to know for his case if the nat phos will work alone or he have to reinforce with other remedy so i can oder everything together, because the medication can take more than 15 to 30 days to arrive in my city, so i dont want to take the risk of nat phos not work alone and i have to waith more days for other medications.
    Thank you for your attention

    Hello Dr. Delivera,
    I have a 5 months old daughter who I suspect has silent reflux.
    She is not vommiting or has excessive crying episodes but since she was born I can clearly see that she is not comfortable after feelings, has hiccups, doesn’t like to lay on her back, I can sometimes hear the fizz in her throat and belly (gurgles a lot) and she is making sounds while breathing when she sleeps.
    My husband suffers from reflux for years now so it all looked familiar.
    She would sleep at night and wake up every 2-3 hours and I suspect it is reflux/heartburn that wakes her up.
    The family doctor told us that she might have a bit of reflux when she was born but she is not losing weight so no medications prescribed (thankfully). Would you suggest we start treating with the Natrum Phos 6X? I want my baby to sleep comfortably and not suffer from discomfort after feeding. She is formula fed by the way (4 oz every 3-4 hours).
    Thank you in advance!!
