I’ve mentioned that I hate taking pills, right? It’s not the act of taking them but rather the need to take them. I’m on the fence a little when it comes to natural remedies too; some I think are awesome others I think it really depends on your body chemistry and mindset. Anyway, my Aunt recommended Aloe Vera juice to help with calming my stomach and reducing the GERD. I went to a local store and bought a gallon of the oddly colored liquid last night. Starting with 4oz at night and in the morning it already seems to have made a big difference. I did not take a Nexium last night and by now I’d have the burning throat. I’m really optimistic about this; I’d rather pay a local health food store $8/month rather than UnitedHealthCare $30/month for Nexium.
Now I just need to drop this unsightly ass fat and I can get off the beta blocker. (hee hee)
