ACID REFLUX DIET

ACID REFLUX DIET

Mint, long thought to aid in digestion, tends to stimulate reflux in people with acid reflux disease.

Alcoholic drinks and smoking
can damage the lining of the esophagus and the stomach. Fermented beverages, like wine and beer, also can increase the production of stomach acid.

Caffeinated drinks
—including coffees, teas, sodas, and even hot chocolate—are a problem for some people with acid reflux disease. Even decaffeinated coffee, is acidic and can aggravate heartburn.

High-fat foods
tend to relax the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) muscle. In addition foods with higher fat content digest more slowly; this leaves food and acid in the stomach much longer, increasing the chances of experiencing heartburn.

Tomatoes, citrus fruits, and onions
are acidic and trigger heartburn in some people.

Sodas
, even if caffeine-free, can trigger heartburn because they are carbonated

Have smaller meals
. Eating large meals creates pressure in your stomach. This pressure can force acid from the stomach into your esophagus. Maintain upright posture during and after eating. Avoid clothing that is tight in the abdominal area.

Eat your last evening meal or snack at least 3 hours before bedtime.
Most of the food in your stomach is digested within 3 hours. Sleep on your left side. Elevate the head of your bed 4-6 inches by placing bricks under the headboard.
