You will get information on alkaline way of eating to heal yourself from GERD by checking on all my past postings.
It's incredible to me that more people aren't willing to eat alkaline and get over this illness!!!
You have to educate yourself as to which foods are alkaline and which are acidic.....
Basically it means almost becoming a vegetarian. Why not try it for a while if you can heal yourself??? Not that big a deal.....I did it!!! You do have to give up coffee, dairy, meat, fish, pasta, rice, alcohol, soda, sugar!!! It's not easy, but I would have given up anything to feel better. I did and in two months I was over my GERD.
I ate millet (sustained middle eastern world for thousands of years) and quinoa (sustained south americans for thousands of years) and tofu for protein. I also ate avocados, watermelon (most alkaline fruit), dried figs, dates were great since they provided the sweetness I missed from giving up sugar. There were many alkaline vegetables that I also added to my diet.
Eat small meals a few times a day....don't eat a few hours before going to sleep.
Sleep on your left side (stomach acid cannot creep up into your esophagus) and with a raised torso if you want on a wedge pillow. I believe the left side sleeping is the most important.
