  • I've been struggling with acid reflux and a bloated feeling.  I went to a clinic and was giving acid blockers.  Has anyone had experience with this?

  • I suggest eating an apple in the evening. Also, yogurt soothes, and stay away from fatty foods; as it is essential!

    I can't stress enough that I would not take any PPIs (proton pump inhibitors).

     Don't drink coffee, tea, or any acidic juice such as orange juice. Also don't eat chocolate, pizza or any tomato sauce and see what happens.

  • Have you tried drinking a full glass of water when the acid kicks in? Sometimes you need to drink two full glasses - the full feeling usually only lasts a little while. You might be surprised - it's at least worth a try.

  • It is better to take proton pump inhibitors than to develop esophogeal cancer from unregulated acid reflux. My grandfather is in his 80's and has been on proton pump inhibitors for over 20 years. He would have developed Barrets Esophogus and cancer without the medicine. Try the natural methods and see if they work. If they don't, take the Prilosec your doctor gives you.

  • Try eating Acidophilus with your meal.  Also, eating peppermints after every meal can help.

    Perhaps also consider eating less processed foods and instead more fresh food along with more fruits and veggies if possible.

    Hope this helps!

  • Based on my research, acid reflux is from a lack of acid in the body, not a build-up.  It's counter-intuitive until you understand it.  It's usually caused by eating too many acidic foods (i.e. white sugar, coffee, processed carbs, etc).  which require stomache acids to break them down (the old saying that 'like dissolves like' applies here).

    You need to add specific fruits/veggies to your diet that will help to add healthy acids to your body, which (and this is the counter-intuitive part) will turn your body back to a more alkaline (i.e. basic) state.  Certain fruits/veggies are acidic, but when processed by the body, chemically turn alkaline.

    Fruits/veggies:
    *(make sure you drink water/brush teeth after eating these foods so you don't hurt your teeth enamel.  They are highly acidic).*

    - Lemons/lemon water  
    - Apple cider vinegar
    - Apples
    - spinach/kale smoothies

    There's probably other remedies.  Check out www.earthclinic.com

    Good luck!

  • I took Prilosec OTC for a few years.  Now regular visits to the chiropractor keeps acid reflux knocked out.  Where I used to live, the chiropractor used a little gadget on my sternum/solar plexus area.  I occasionally do the same rapid pecking with a stiff finger and get a little relief.

    I have moved and my current chiropractor seems to be more effective in dealing with my acid reflux.  He adjusts my anteriors in my back and that seems to provide much longer lasting relief.

    I was very hesitant in initially going to a chiropractor and likewise in finding a new one.  I don't know what to say if you're reluctant to go to a chiropractor other than I am sympathetic to you but taking the plunge worked for me.  I have also seen 2 others in this new office.  None of them hurt me.  But I have had the best adjustments with the 3 men and they have been in the 34 - 54 year old age range.  Just my experience.

  • BTW--if you are going to take Prilosec or something similar, have your magnesium checked regularly and consider taking supplements.

  • Go to sprouts or a store that has pepsins, and digestal, what you need, a natural enzyemes that you have lack of.  You need acid. Sounds strange but these natural food stores with suppliments  and vitamins and such, will get you just what you need.

    My son-in-law went through the same thing and went to his store known as the "Mustard See".  No more problems.

  • I used to get heart burn all the time, then someone told me to take a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar everyday. I have never had heart burn again.

    The best remedial apple cider vinegar is Bragg's.  

    About 100 years ago, Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar ("With the Mother" - Mother of Vinegar, that is) was standard equipment in the Doctor's Bag they used for house calls.  That's when doctors actually made house calls.  But since Big Pharma's monopolization of doctors' thinking processes, and since they can't put a prescription price tag on Bragg's, it has been set aside by physicians.

    But it's health benefits continue, nonetheless.


    (CLICKABLE IMAGE ^ )

    So now, if you ask your doctor (who's prescribing "acid reflux medication" to you) about Bragg Apple Cider Vinegar, he might well laugh in your face.  He's most likely committed to his Big Pharma paradigm of poisoning your body with their controlled substances (called prescriptions) so that he keeps his pension and insurance and board certification and all that stuff.

    Many of us who were told we had low acid (and the HMO refused to test) and were put on PPI, found out we actually were low in acid. Others and myself now take HCL and enzymes with meals (HCL with protein meals only) and have no more reflux.
