My understanding is that Herbal tea in moderation is okay for LPR/GERD.

I drink a lot of tea, often three cups per day.  Several teas are thought to aid digestion, including chamomile, rooibos and licorice.  Those are the flavors I usually drink, but I also have green tea around.  Tea does bother some people, but I believe it is an individual matter.  Even the "safe for GERD" foods seem to bother a number of people.  So don't be afraid to experiment with tea.  I find it helpful for settling my stomach after a meal.  I no longer take a PPI, I eat well (Koufman diet), take Zantec, and have made many lifestyle changes.

Hi Joe,

My ENT told me the tea I should have is chamomile, decaf. I have it at night with honey because I find it makes me sleepy. I have since tried green tea decaf and that seems to be ok for me during the day. I try to not let the tea bag seep as long as I normally would so my tea is lighter and not so strong but still gives me the flavor.

Hi Joe,

Please remember that not all brands o chamomile are the same. For LPR, Dr. Koufman recommends twinings brand. As far as other teas not being ok for lpr, the ph content of tea is what really matters. Look up Dr. K's blog called "water water everywhere, but nothing left to drink."
Feel Good,

-Faith

Twinings is a brand of tea. To find this forum, just perform an internet search and type in "Water Water Everywhere, But Nothing Left to Drink."
