I'm curious as to what I could be missing in the "things to avoid that are acidic". Here are mine:
Coffee or strong tea. (I can have one small cup of either but on a full stomach, if I have more then it's misery)
more than a handful of nuts
burgers (I do better with a small filet mignon)
I usually can get away with one "bad" thing a day but woe is me if I go ver that amount.
I'm on my 12th day of cold turkey from 3 years or so of Nexium. And it's been hard. I try to keep the Pepcid Complete to only 2 a day and chew about 3 DGL tabs throughout the day. I am also trying the one every other day Orange Oil capsules. Supposedly after 20 days there will be some sort of cure. I'm not feeling it so far....
