HAMPL Reflux 343 Formula
- Chronic Digestive Issues – can be a sign of “Chronic Pancreatitis”, with or without Scar tissue build up(see AN158) Also a symptoms of “Stool Eating” See AN298, symptoms medically called “Asthma”
Chronic Pancreatitis is often related to food sensitivities and presents with a similar history and clinical signs as chronic esophagitis and reflux, except there is no regurge.
e.g Regurgitation is the involuntary return of partially digested food from the stomach into the mouth.
But most symptoms occur due to Gastroesphageal reflux (GERD or GORD) where the digestive juice containing acid from the stomach moves up into the esophagus.
The Lower Esophageal Sphincter (LES) is like a valve that prevents the stomach contents leaking up into the esophagus.When your inner musculature is weakened the neck of the stomach can slide up through the aperture in the diaphragm where the esophagus passes through. This allows stomach contents to reflux up into the esophagus causing the symptoms of acidic reflux and heartburn.
In Humans – these symptoms of GERD may include:
heartburn: chest pain or burning,
nausea, vomiting or retching (dry heaves)
waterbrash, the rapid appearance of a large amount of saliva in the mouth that is stimulated by the refluxing acid
In some patients, reflux into the lower esophagus sets off nervous reflexes that can cause a cough or even spasm of the small airways within the lungs (asthma).
A few patients may reflux acid droplets into the back of their throat. This acid can be inhaled or aspirated into the lung causing coughing spasms, asthma, or repeated infections of the lung including pneumonia and bronchitis. This may occur in individuals of all ages, from infants to the elderly. Fortunately, this is very uncommon.
The symptoms are unmistakable.
But for some people, (maybe dogs too) the symptoms of reflux aren’t so obvious. In fact, they’re silent.
Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) is also known as “silent reflux”
LPR doesn’t cause any symptoms. The contents of your stomach could reflux up your esophagus, into your throat and voice box, and even into your nasal passages, and you might never know it — until more serious symptoms begin to arise from damage caused by stomach acid e.g ulcers.
Knowing the difference between the two types of reflux and their symptoms may help you know which type you’re experiencing.
Common symptoms of LPR
Common symptoms of GERD
|a bitter taste in your throat||heartburn|
|a sore throat or a burning sensation in your throat||nausea, vomiting, or regurgitation|
|difficulty swallowing||difficulty swallowing|
|hoarseness||hoarseness after sleeping|
|frequently feeling the need to clear your throat||dry, painful cough|
|chronic postnasal drip, or feeling like you have drainage dripping from your nose into your throat||bad breath|
* For GERD or LPR in humans
By taking 1-2 Betaine HCL 648mg capsules “before” eating a protein meal will also help digestion. No longer needing to rely on Nexium or other ant acid drugs. (they severely deplete magnesium and vitamin B12 from your body).As well the homeopathic Reflux drops on body.
* For GERD or LPR in Canines
You can open capsule and add to meals. Important to feed less meat and more pureed veg.

Pets with Digestive Upsets
~ Chronic pancreatitis is often related to food sensitivities and presents with a similar history and clinical signs as chronic esophagitis and reflux, except there is no regurge. * (Regurge means: Regurgitation is the involuntary return of partially digested food from the stomach into the mouth)
~ Gastroesophageal reflux is fairly common in cats, and may occur at any age, although younger cats are at greater risk. Gastric stomach acids, pepsin, bile salts, and other components of the gastrointestinal juices cause damage to the protective mucus lining the esophagus. Acid reflux is often also called GERD or gastroesophageal reflux, a more descriptive and specific term. When it becomes severe enough to damage the esophagus, it becomes esophagitis.
Acid reflux and esophagitis in cats cause very serious problems:
• difficulty swallowing
• scarring of the esophagus * we also suggest looking at AN158
• aspiration pneumonia, from food or liquid getting into their lungs.
What causes acid reflux in cats?
Many factors can cause excess stomach acid and GERD in cats.
We’ll list them in approximate order of likelihood.
~ Radiation therapy
If your cat has had radiation therapy around their neck, it can damage their esophagus or impair its function. You would, of course, know your cat had had this treatment and your vet should prepare you for potential problems.
Temporary acid reflux can be caused by anesthesia if the anesthesia was improperly administered. This may cause your cat discomfort and stress for a short time but should not last long enough to cause serious damage. Should it impair their ability to eat or swallow, or seem to be causing them pain get them to a vet.
~ Chemical Medications
Some medications, such as clindamycin, doxycycline, tetracycline, and potassium chloride, can cause esophagitis, which means the cat suddenly gets a weakened esophageal sphincter and damage to their esophagus when the other causes were not present or sufficient to create a problem. This would occur while the cat was on medication, so you could suspect this as a cause.
Younger cats are more likely to develop acid reflux than adult cats because their esophageal sphincter muscle is not fully developed. Senior cats may have an increased risk because they are more often exposed to chemical drug products and treatments, that may cause temporary acid reflux or esophageal sphincter damage.
Like humans, the cat body just doesn’t work right when they’re stressed. One of the ways this presents itself is that they can produce more stomach acid than their bodies can really handle. Too much stomach acid and gas can put excess pressure on the esophageal muscle and cause acid reflux.
If your cat throws up a lot from chronic hairballs or any other reason, all this vomiting can weaken the esophageal sphincter. You will certainly know if your cat has been puking enough to cause this problem. No one misses cat vomiting.
What goes in a kitty tummy impacts how well their tummy works and how much acid they produce. The exact cause may be different for each pet, but low-quality cat commercial foods are the most common culprit.
Symptoms of Acid Reflux in cats
Acid reflux typically begins with having too much stomach acid and gastritis.
Cat excess stomach acid symptoms may include:
• loss of appetite
• occasional vomiting, especially within an hour of eating or when eating certain foods
Because your cat can’t tell you they are uncomfortable or what’s wrong, many cat owners don’t discover anything is wrong in its milder stages. It becomes acid reflux, or GERD, when it starts entering the cat’s esophagus, hence the reflux part of the name.
Symptoms of GERD in cats may include:
• frequent vomiting often within one hour after eating
• vomiting up bile or nothing but acid
• licking their paws in a manner not like grooming, in an attempt to self-soothe
• licking their lips
• weight loss
• persistent or unusual coughing
• difficulty swallowing, they may stretch their neck out to try to swallow or visibly appear to struggle with swallowing, or want to eat but stop when they try to swallow
• excessive drooling
• a change in vocal pitch
• difficulty breathing with pneumonia * We would also suggest looking at AN112
• fever, with infection from extreme esophagus damage or pneumonia
Feline Asthma ?
Some cats that were swallowing hard when purring or vocalizing were diagnosed with asthma. Feline asthma is usually caused by an allergic reaction due to inhaled allergens that stimulate a cat’s immune system.
Signs and symptoms may include;
coughing or hacking
difficulty breathing or open-mouthed breathing.

See AN252 formula … if as a Hiatal Hernia, as it can causes no symptoms.
A natural alternative to surgery for all types of hernias anywhere in the body. It could be an old or recent injuries or if could found in infant and newborns animals and pets.
~ Umbilical and Inguinal Hernia conditions.i.e. animals who may have been born with a hernia where the birth tube was attached.
~ Hiatal hernias are categorized as being either sliding or para-esophageal.
Most often if symptoms occur, they are due to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) where the digestive juice containing acid from the stomach moves up into the esophagus.
~ Sliding hiatal hernias are those in which the junction of the esophagus and stomach, referred to as the gastro- esophageal junction, and part of the stomach protrude into the chest. The junction may reside permanently in the chest, but often it juts into the chest only during a swallow. This occurs because with each swallow the muscle of the esophagus contracts causing the esophagus to shorten and to pull up the stomach. When the swallow is finished, the herniated part of the stomach falls back into the abdomen.
~ Para-esophageal hernias are hernias in which the gastro- esophageal junction stays where it belongs (attached at the level of the diaphragm), but part of the stomach passes or bulges into the chest beside the esophagus. The para- esophageal hernias themselves remain in the chest at all times and are not affected by swallows.
~ A para-esophageal hiatal hernia that is large, particularly if it compresses the adjacent esophagus, may impede the passage of food into the stomach and cause food to stick in the esophagus after it is swallowed. Ulcers also may form in the herniated stomach due to the trauma caused by food that is stuck or acid from the stomach. Fortunately, large para-esophageal hernias are uncommon.

General Dosing and Instructions Guide
For all species, size, and ages.
(a) “HOMEOPATHICS”are sold in either a clear liquid or tiny white pills or granules – both have no odour or taste)
Easy “application dosing” for all species:
- Homeopathic DROPS (clear liquid) DRIP or APPLY 3 to 4 drops, pat into fur/skin with bottom of bottle. i.e. back of shoulder blades (not orally) which is regarded as one dose for all size species and ages. Note: Liquid homeopathics are more suited for feline, toy dog, fish, birds and other small species
- Homeopathic PILLS (white pills) crush a pill (or whole) and add to gum/pouch of mouth to dissolve in saliva. Does not need to swallow it.
- Homeopathic GRANULES (white grain) and a small light sprinkle or a pinch to meals, or stir into water trough or bowl.
Casual repeat dosing can add to water bowl or feed dish or water trough for wildlife or farm animals.
Refer to Bottle Label for suggested frequencies repeat dosing needed per day.
the rule is one must “repeat a dose” more frequently with less time in between each application dose, which is more important than the amount given each time. Repeat application will provide
(b) “HERBAL MEDICINES ” (brown liquid – strong odour & tasting)
”Application dosing” for all species and sizes:
Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat : add herbal drops (as recommended on bottle label) to some (unsweetened apple sauce or apple juice) for canines and oral syringe side of mouth. Can add other vitamins (crushed) Alkaline green powders etc. to mix.
Refer to Bottle Label for amount of drops per species size. e.g 60 drops = 1 teaspoon
What I do for example: If I was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to a small bowl add some boiled water (about a teaspoon) to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
Giving vitamins and supplements (tablets or powders) Note: always crush tablet before adding to food or liquid mix.
Felines or small animals: make up 1 cup of mixture, adding approx. a pinch of some type of Green powder (alkaline powder) or Chlorella powder (cleansing of toxins) or 1/4 Teaspoons of Slippery elm powder (to mask the taste) with 1 teaspoon of herbs if you are having to also give herbal medicines (i.e. brown liquid)
Med to large animals: add twice to three times the amount.
DOSING: Feline or small animal: using an oral syringe draw up 1ml and gently small sips. Or add a teaspoon to meals if they don’t mind eating it with meals (mix well into food) Do not put in Fridge. Room temp is best as too cold is dislike by felines.
DOSING: Canine, equine, cow, sheep, goat: try mixing well into food and hand piece before feeding main meals. Or dose same as suggested for felines, but add three times as much herbal medicines and vitamins to 1/2 cup of water or (unsweetened) apple sauce or apple juice.
What I do for example: If i was needing to give herb treatments and/or vitamin supplements to feline or toy dog or other small animals – I add this herbal formula to 1/2 cup of boiled hot water to it so to dissolve the alcohol in it, let cool, then add what vitamins If needed (powder or crushed tab – a pinch) mixed in another 50ml of water, and oral syringe once a day or twice a day …. smear on a little “vegemite paste” (if cannot get Vegemite in your country, try fresh pate or slippery elm powder added can help mask the taste) around and on tip of oral syringe, as felines seem to real like the taste of this paste, but not too much as it is quite a strong taste)
Slippery Elm Powder
If needing to add or use Slippery Elm powder
FOR CONDITIONS like …. diarrhea, stomach ulcers, or sore inflamed mouth or mouth ulcers, constipation, or IBS (i.e. colitis), plus it can also been given as a liquid meal given orally via syringe as it is highly nutritional (oral liquid feeding) for convalescing during illness when not eating solids.
CONVALESCING ..can been given as a liquid meal given orally via syringe as it is highly nutritional (oral liquid feeding) for convalescing during illness when not eating solids or not eating very well.
~ Add a small amount of powder to the mix to enough to make a runny liquid mix, if you put too much of the powder it will become thick and gluggy, if this happens you will need to add more liquid to it. Can add crushed vitamins and herbal medicines to this as well.
OPTIONS: Oral dose in syringe or add to meals three times a day or more to maintain normal health again, then can stop or reduce frequencies.
