I recently heard that drinking while eating, or right after, can aggravate GERD more. That it only causes more digestion or something. Any truth to this? I thought water was always good for gerd, and you were supposed to drink it during and/or after eating.

My tummy problems decreased when i started to drink plenty of water.

First thing in the morning drinking 2 cups of water really helps.

Everyone is going to have different thoughts on every treatment. I have actually heard that drinking room temp. water while eating helps greatly. Not the cold, because that like shocks your system, but room temp. water does help. I have read that places, and heard that from a number of people.

It may work for some, and not for others, like everything.

Let us know if it works for you!
