Consume Honey 6 Times A Day When Suffering From GERD?
, my gerd has not recovered yet. I think the antibiotic levofloxacin etc is not enough. So I want to drink 2 tablespoons of honey in the morning, 2 tablespoons during the day, and 2 tablespoons at night. May I? Isn’t it too much? Oh yes, I also still sweat badly at night, my body is hot, my hands are really pale. But again in the morning. Do you think I got hit? What is drug reliever? Or my typhus that hasn’t healed? Explanation please. Thanks.
Hello Anna, Thank you for the question.
The antibiotics that you take are more aimed at treating typhus you are experiencing and do not treat gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Acid reflux occurs when the muscles in the lower part of the stomach are weakened so that stomach acid can back up into the esophagus, causing symptoms. Symptoms of GERD sufferers are heartburn or chest pain that feels burning, belching, a bitter / sour taste in the mouth, flatulence, shortness of breath, coughing, a lump in the throat, nausea, vomiting. On the other hand, typhus is an infection of the digestive tract caused by Salmonella typhii bacteria which is transmitted through consumption of contaminated food and drinks. Typhus sufferers will experience symptoms of diarrhea / constipation, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, fever, decreased appetite. How long have you been on antibiotics? If you still have fever and night sweats, it could be because you are just starting on antibiotics. It usually takes 48-72 hours before antibiotics can work optimally to treat the infection. But if this complaint still occurs after you take antibiotics for more than 3 days, then you should go back to your doctor for further tests. It is impossible to know the cause of your complaint without a doctor's examination. Further treatment will be given after knowing the cause of your complaint.
Honey is known to have a number of health benefits, one of which is to help treat stomach ulcers or stomach ulcers. There are no specific guidelines for consuming honey. You can consume several spoons of honey in a day.
To treat acid reflux disease, the doctor will usually provide stomach acid regulating drugs and / or stomach acid neutralizing drugs or other drugs. Apart from that, you can also follow these recommendations:
avoid consumption of spicy and oily foods
avoid consumption of caffeinated, fizzy and alcoholic drinks
avoid lying down after eating
avoid eating large portions; please eat smaller portions of food but more often
keep your body weight ideal
avoid wearing clothes that are tight on the stomach area
If the complaint does not get better, do not hesitate to return to consult with the doctor who treated you before.
I hope this helps.
