D-Limonene (Orange Peel Extract) for Heartburn while nursing?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Has anyone ever used D-Limonene with success for heartburn/reflux? I am desperate and the only thing that works for me is PPI's aka Prilosec which I do NOT want to be on forever, especially since I will be TTC sometime within the next year. I have had GERD every since I had my first child, 3 years ago. I am sick of my esophagus being inflamed and at this point I might also need to wean my DS if that's what it takes. I don't like the thought of taking a PPI while nursing either. Help!

Raw apple cider vinegar is what works for me. I take it mixed in water with honey and lemon to make it taste better cause it is kind of gross - but it is so effective. There is no published research on it as with most natural remedies that are considered "folklore". I have also heard Marshmallow root is effective.
