In brief: Ineffectively...

Barrett's esophagus is not something to play around with! barrett's epithelium occurs as a terminal event in those with chronic gerd.
Barrett's patients risks cancer of the esophagus. Poorly treated barrett's can progress by replacing more & more of the esophagus lining, & can become dysplastic. Barrett's warrants surveillance endoscopy, aggressive acid suppression, & maybe ablation &/or surgery.

They say "ms harris, you and your barrett's are looking so good! your crypt architecture is preserved and your nuclei are basally placed and uniform. I can see that your surface maturation is well established and that there is not even a hint of abnormal mitotic figures.
I think you are doing great. Lets not re-biopsy you for another 6 months.".
