Hi Bunkie, I suffered from severe heartburn for years until I saw a Naturpathic Dr, who spent an hour with my wife and I, talking about diet. Worst thing is sugar, it ferments anything in your stomach, use honey if yo need a sweetener. salt is the next worst, use sea salt instead. Read labels, foods such as cereals are full of sugar and so on. Try chewing sugarless gum to relieve your heratburn, takes a little longer but it works. Of course the best thing you could do (IMHO) would check in with your closest Naturpath.
Hope this brings you some relief.

Sorry to hear about your problem - being in the health business for so many years we have helped many people with your problem even though they themselves don't quite have the same
health situation. But I believe someday if they don't take care of themselves then they too
will have either an ileo or colostomy. Having an ileo I get not only acid reflux but when I eat too
fast I get the hip cups. I take pro biotics, a digestive enzyme, you can also take dandalion or cayenne pepper (only a a last resort - because it really gets hot unless you get the cool cayenne) Also hawthorn will calm down acid reflux, these are all herbs. Also I drink high ph alkaline water it works great for digestion. Good Luck, their is an answer to your problem
do some research on these herbs and especially the water - you will be surprised as to how
you can move on without giving up the foods you enjoy. Butterfly48

Our panties and belts have a pocket on the inside into which the stoma bag is inserted. Because there is cotton fabric between the bag and the skin, it reduces the possibility of skin inflammation. The panties, additionally, hold the bag against the body and reduce the possibility of detachment. In the case of bag detachment, it stays in place, as the pocket prevents it from slipping along the body and dropping out of clothing to the ground. While sleeping, the panties hold the bag to the body and prevent wrinkling and curling, which allows for a relaxed sleep.

awww Bunkie I'm so sorry you are having these problems....more common than you think with many of us however, everyone's replies here fantastic and especially Butterfly's advice.....I have had my ostomy for 34 years and in getting to know soooo many people now who have osties for various reasons, seems most of us who have Crohn's have more of these types of problems to deal with.......don't know if you have Crohn's or not, and that is not to say our other osty brothers and sisters don't have these probs, it's just an observation I have made by a landslide it seems to be mostly Crohn's that makes us more sensitive to a lot of these problems......but you will be able to settle some of this.....keep in touch with your doctors about this but also I am much like Butterfly in respect to using natural remedies and they work fantastic most of the time......everyone is different, so it's a bit of an experiment.....good luck honey
