About GERD by Chris Barr

Are there any new diseases or do they just come up with new names for old ones?
For decades I have watched the history of what was once called indigestion …..
… from indigestion to heartburn to chronic heartburn …..
… from chronic heartburn to hiatal hernia …
… from hiatal hernia to acid reflux …
… from acid reflux to just reflux …
… from all the above to GERD …
… GERD = gastroesophageal reflux disease
This has been of more than passing interest to me as I was afflicted as a very young man. First there was the occasional indigestion. It was identified as heartburn as it became more frequent. As intensity of the symptoms increased it was called chronic heartburn. Finally a doctor told me, “You have a hiatal hernia”. That is when I learned about enzymes. However, I didn’t stop there.
Enzymes are AN answer. They are not THE answer.
My own hiatal hernia was vanquished decades ago long before the terms acid reflux or GERD came into use. Since that time I have never known another so afflicted (no matter the “name of the moment”) that did not respond to THE answer.
Digestion requires several enzymes as well as hydrochloric acid. A lack of these leads to the names above.
Mine was caught early. The doctor told me of digestive enzymes. I took them and the problem disappeared as long as I took them and continued taking them .
Remember the cliche “use it or lose it”. Atrophy is when something degenerates from lack of usage. A battery unused will lose its charge. Muscles that are developed will lose their strength if they are not used. I think just about everyone understands this concept whether or not they know the word ‘atrophy’.
The “names above” are a result of not enough enzyme and digestive acid production. If you supply those items from the outside then your insides don’t need to provide them. Atrophy will set in. Eventually the lack of production will grow to poor, yet poorer and finally poorest production. You’ll be on enzymes for life. That’s not such a bad thing, it’s just an unnecessary thing.
“He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man”
(Psalms 104:14).
Just a few months into my successful and satisfying use of enzymes I met Dr. Richard Barmakian. He had a specially processed herbal compound called CanGest.
CanGest is THE answer to digestive problems.
This herbal compound causes restoration of function in the digestive tract. Depending upon severity of the condition, it eliminates the need for itself within a few months to a year.
In the decades since then I have noted THE answer of CanGest as very faithful in providing relief when taken according to the instructions that Dr. Barmakian gave to me.
DIRECTION’S for taking CanGest. Drink CanGest herbal tea before each meal and at bedtime. Many enjoy the taste of it. I do. I don’t need it any more but every once in a while I drink a cup just for taste (and also to encourage newbies).
Mix up to 1 tsp. in 2 or 3 ounces of warm (NOT HOT) water. It mixes instantly. Sip slowly over a minute or so, swishing about in the mouth (even chewing).
After full relief is obtained (7 to 10 days) reduce the amount to 3/4 tsp. If symptoms don’t return after another week then reduce again to 1/2 tsp. If symptoms again do not return after yet another week reduce once again to 1/4 tsp. If symptoms return go back up to the last successful level. The first of every month start the reduction routine again to see how you are progressing. Within one year you should be fully restored with only an occasional need (if that) for CanGest.
The herbal combination of CanGest stimulates the body’s digestive function. Sustained usage results in restoration so that the product is eventually needed only sporadically if at all. It may take from a few months to a year before it is no longer needed.
CanGest is in a class by itself. It is THE answer to digestive trouble.

Can-gest powder, a natural digestive aide


A traditional blend of nine herbal extracts that nourish the digestive system and help maintain the eliminative system while providing nutritional support for the liver.


Many studies have shown that the usual American diet is rich in fat, sugar, calcium and phosphates, and low in fish, vegetables and whole grains. This typical diet does not provide the necessary amount of essential nutrients (like magnesium and potassium) and can actually block many nutrients in your diet from being absorbed in the intestines. Can-Gest supports the natural functions of the digestive system, helps to clear stagnant waste, and is thought to aide in the absorption of essential nutrients.

The founder of our company, Richard Barmakian, N.D., studied in Paris, France with Dr. Louis Kervran. He traveled to Canada and studied under Alma R. Hutchins, a protégé of Natalie and N.G. Tretchikoff, well-known Russian herbalists. He also studied with Dr. Paavo Airola Ph.D., and through these educational endeavors, Dr. Barmakian based his Can-Gest formula on a perfect combination of herbs that nourish the digestive system. We continue to provide Dr. Barmakian’s original formula and ensure the quality of all ingredients used.

Can-Gest contains 8 different herbs that have been used in traditional medicine for hundreds of years. Each herb is known and well-documented in helping the body in the following ways:


Enhances the digestive function and improves the assimilation of nutrients into the system. Associated with liver function and supporting the pancreas.


Known for stimulating the activity of the digestive system.


Known for its use as both a gentle, natural, vegetal laxative and as nutritional support for the bowel and digestive system.


Known for its use as a demulcent (a soothing effect on the mucus membranes) and an emollient (having a soothing effect) that is useful for inflammation and irritation of the alimentary tract.


Beneficial to soothe the digestive system and known for its nutritional support for gas, nausea and diarrhea.


Known for its relaxant qualities on the central nervous and digestive system.


Known for its nutritional support of the digestive system.


Common name is Butter Tree. It has been used as a cholagogue (to increase the flow of bile) and is known for its nutritional support for the liver and gall bladder.

As with all of Alta’s health products, Can-Gest is safe to take while nursing and/or pregnant. It is also safe for children but consider one capsule to be a dose; capsules can be opened and the contents mixed with applesauce (or any other food your child likes).



As a dietary supplement 1/4 tsp in a tea cup of hot water.
