Know Your Food Enemies
Vast is the spectrum of foods that can trigger digestive problems: spicy foods, chocolate, peppermint, citrus, tomato-based foods, mustard, chili, and raw onions are all thought to irritate the lining of the esophagus. But what's the major dietary factor in causing reflux? "Eating large, fatty meals," says Jeffrey Alexander, MD, head of the Esophageal Clinic at the Mayo Clinic. That's because fat softens the sphincter muscles, which seal off the lower esophagus. Without a tight seal, stomach acids can back up into it. Be sure to eat foods rich in fibre, the dinner of choice for gut-friendly bacteria. Chow down on at least 20 grams of fibre a day in foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Just add it in gradually to prevent bloating.
You want to make your heartburn worse, keep using Zantac and Pepcid.
I did for years and my stomach kept getting worse because instead of curing my heartburn all those did was to mask the symptoms while the problem got worse and worse and worse.
I found the cure for heartburn, it's called an apple.
Every time I get heartburn I eat an apple an within 5 minutes my heartburn is gone.
Before I started eating apples I was getting really bad heartburn 1-3 times a day, now I get mild heartburn once every 3 days.
My stomach is healing very nicely from all the damage those so called cures have done to me.
Try using apples for curing heartburn and you will see for yourself.
Pop a pill??? This is such bad information! Stay away from grains especially wheat! Heartburn and acid reflux are caused from not having enough acid in the stomach! Take a teaspoon of Apple cider vinegar in a small glass of water! Just another pill popping salesman that wrote this ****!

Try (very hard and very seriously) to eliminate meat from your diet....it practically cures everything! It's been over four months for me, now eating lots of fruit, veggies, always looking for meat substitues and they are out there. We just cook the same but without the meat. I used to get it bad, severe pain that lasted anywhere from 4 to 8 hours after eating beef especially and since have had nothing but good feelings about giving up animal fats. I've also eliminated dairy, lots of substitutes for that also. I've known this for years, just too lazy to get at it until now. I had donated a kidney in March and that was when I got turned from many foods aftewards, just lost the appetite for it, and have since lost 12 lbs as well....nothing but bonuses. 56 and feeling great!
