I hope this post is on-topic. It's more about gut health than brain health, but I want to soothe my stomach without aggravating my protracted benzodiazepine withdrawal.
This forum has several experts on benzo withdrawal, so I'm hoping some of you might chime in.
I have posted other threads about my experience. The short story is that I'm 17 months post-benzos and still pretty sensitive.
In the past month, I have developed gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), which is also known as acid reflux.
Can I safely drink peppermint tea to counter symptoms (heartburn, metallic breath)? A few posts on other forums claim that peppermint is a weak GABA antagonist, but I haven't found a reliable citation.
How about ginger as a powder, tea, or juice? I'm having trouble finding out if ginger has any effect on GABA.
Thanks to anyone who can lend their knowledge to answer my question.
