Hey there, this is Kitt.

Apricot juice, pear juice, mango juice - all of them are not very acidic. But you should see for yourself how you react to them.
The acidic citrus fruits like orange, lemon and grapefruit should be avoided, just like the tomato, which is one of the most irritating foods for your stomach.

Drinking alcohol and smoking may also relax the LES (lower esophageal sphincter) tone. It is your call but I would go easy on the drinking of the spirits.   Just my opinion. :-)

Take care and I hope this has helped you.

Kitt

gift, water is not your only option,there are other beneficial things that are also enjoyable to  drink, I try to stay organic in general, I like a drink called Haldi which has helped my GERD, their green tea and berry drinks are mild and soothing, but there are other things as well, you have to try and see how they effect you.  I agree with kitt, alcohol definitely in moderation.

    Dear ,
 
                   Yuckygut  I've read your posts and decided to go ahead and give HALDI berry a try.
 
 Does this drink have any side effects to any kind of medication or I mean any thing unusual
 
happen to you while taking it ?
 
 
 
        How do you drink your haldi drinks ? Before Bed ? In the mornings ?

I would be interested in more info on Haldi too.  If you would be so kind or point me at your previous posts if the info is there.

Thanks

Kitt

The main thing that happened to me after I started drinking Haldi was to come off my steroids, which I took forever for my colitis. That was the best thing that ever(and I do mean ever) happend to me. I also came off of protonix. Kitt, not sure how to point out other posts? But this is what I understand about it, I dont know how it helps with Gerd, if it works with inflammation, or helps tighten my sphincter muscle or what, but it did work. And the literature I have seen on curcumin makes me want to drink it just for the potential anti cancer effects, even though I was never diagnosed with baretts esoph., it still makes me a little nervous. Gift of, I usually drink mine while working out,(jogging or yoga), it is a pretty good mix with that because it is thirst quenching. Usually I drink 1 daily at least. I have never had any side effects, but you could check the website. And I never like to drink before bed time as a general rule, but I have never tried them that late at night. Good luck

Gift, I think that I took them on and off for about a month, but even when I had been taking protonix, I still had issues with GERD. So I would guess a few weeks of Haldi, and I finally stopped the PPIs. Remember, everyone is different, and I think it is always best to be cautious.

but a nice benefit of this is I dont have to pay for protonix any more

Gift,

I still enjoy my tea - hot or iced - just make sure it's decaf now. I'm a sucker for certain sodas, but know I'll pay for it if I choose to drink them. Milk's okay for me, and I drink lots of non-citrus juices. Alcohol is another "okay-but-you'll-pay" item.

What is Haldi. I looked all over wall Mart and couldn't find it. Do you know what section it is in. And would that be good for me after Nissen?

Haldi is a beverage, I think it is considered anti inflammatory, but I found it at whole foods markets on the east coast, (New York/DC) when I was on business. When not traveling, I have to order it online, but it is the only thing I have found that relieves my esophagus from top to bottom(I know that sounds weird). I found it at haldi4health.

bestfriend, haldi seems more anti inflammatory, I am not sure how if helped my esophageal sphincter to get back in shape but it obviously did, it would seem to be a good fit after your procedure, good luck
