Reflux and trying to get off those nasty pills! The natural way.

Lots of people suffer from Acid Reflux and it can be quite 'sleep disturbing' and have serious affects further down the track if not treated. Yes, it can be 'controlled' re medication but those of us who don't want to permanently take these pills often seek other answers. OK, we are not all the same and the causes are not always easily apparent. I decided to try to go off the pills and attempt a more natural way of dealing to my Reflux issues. Firstly, I stopped drinking coffee at night and I do not have spicy food more than a few times a week. I tried turmeric in a drink but that was revolting so I knew I needed to mask the taste. It DID help though. I am now using a mixture of slippery elm, mixed with Manuka honey and still adding a pinch of turmeric to the warm milk. This concoction actually tastes good. In the morning, I start the day with some apple cider vinegar, before have breakfast. The next addition will be Aloe, which I conveniently grow. I reckon I have the bases covered and I hope to be able to report back in the next few weeks about winning the battle of the 'reflux!'

Five residential properties have been seized as part of a $10 million drug bust. Detectives from the Organised and Financial Crime Agency of New Zealand (Ofcanz) have arrested three suspects and seized $4.5 million worth of methamphetamine, $2.8 million in cash, five properties and three high-valued motor vehicles. Operation Roller focused on the supply of methamphetamine in the Auckland region. The suspects are a 61-year-old New Zealand citizen, a 23-year-old Chinese national and a 43-year-old New Zealand citizen. Detective Senior Sergeant Colin Parmenter said Operation Roller demonstrated that the demand for methamphetamine in New Zealand remains high. "The market for methamphetamine is still very strong," Mr Parmenter said. "Police will continue to target organised criminal groups that manufacture and supply methamphetamine to prevent the harm it causes in our community." The 61-year-old New Zealander was charged with a number of drug-related offences after police found 2kg of methamphetamine at a property in Bucklands Beach. The Chinese national and the 43-year-old New Zealand citizen were charged with possessing methamphetamine for supply following the discovery of 2.5 kilograms of methamphetamine at a Remuera address. Mr Parmenter said police would also like to locate Chi Wo Lau in relation to the termination of Operation Roller. "Mr Lau is a 41-year-old New Zealand citizen who has links across the Auckland region," Mr Parmenter said. "He has access to a black Toyota Ractis with the registration HGS977 and a silver Lexus which has a number plate of DWY230." If anyone has information as to the whereabouts of Mr Lau they are asked to contact OFCANZ Detectives on 021 1916108 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. - NZME.
