@nannette I also have bronchiectasis and a small hiatal hernia. I don't feel so alone now! Lol. Thanks for sharing info about DGL Plus tablets and Esophageal Guardian tablets. I haven't heard of them before but it is helpful to know these additional natural remedies also help if you plan to eat a big meal. I try to avoid overeating as I have MVP (mitral valve prolapse) and when I overeat, it seems to trigger the MVP. Also, I was incorrect in my previous post, I take 1 oz of aloe vera juice (not sure why I was thinking tablespoons!) 20 minutes before a meal.
