I've had a very sore gum that made it hard to eat, even to talk clearly; I took a tea containing slippery elm and it eased the pain and seemed to promote healing.

I have had GORD from a hiatus hernia for the last 5 years it had got so bad I experinced pain most of the day. It was awful at night and I was sleeping propped up. Within 2 days of taking this the pain has gone. I have used aloe Vera which improved it a bit but did not stop it. I am still using the aloe Vera but taking slippery elm 3 times per day as directed on the packet of capsules.

My daughter was diagnosed with nasal pharyngeal cancer stage 1V. She had to have intense chemotherapy and radiotherapy which resulted in severe mucositis.
