I am not a Dr. but my symptoms of GERD seems to subside when I drink a glad of Vit D milk.  Dont drink nonfat or even 2%.  If you try it and if it improves for you, let me know.

Hello ole and welcome,

Many people believe that milk and other dairy products will lessen heartburn, acid reflux, and GERD. The truth is, however, that heartburn and milk, GERD and cottage cheese, or any other of dozens of combinations may only make the problem worse. I know custard is a absolutely no no for me but each person is different.

If you call the National Heartburn Alliance toll free at 877-471-2081, you can request a copy of their heartburn guide. What will it tell you? It will advise you to stop heartburn, acid reflux, and GERD before they begin. To help you do this, they color-code various food groups.

* RED: Red means stop, of course. If a food is in this category, you should stop and rethink whether to risk eating it.

* YELLOW: Use discretion in eating these foods.

* GREEN: Normally acceptable foods that seem to have little potential for causing heartburn, acid reflux, or GERD.

Good luck with your GERD and if you find mild works for you that is a good thing.

Again welcome

My personal story is that, I have had heartburn for the last 3 months. It woke me up each night around 2AM with an intensive pain. It becomes very unbearable for me. I remember a few years back when I had a really bad case of sore stomach due to taking Vicodin after my ACL replacement surgery. I drank lots of milk to lessen the pain. But again, only Vit D milk. Well, the stomach problem went away. So, since my post a few days ago, suggesting drinking a full glass of Vit D milk whenever you have heartburn, I have tried it myself. I am now able to sleep through the night. This morning, I woke up around 7AM with another heartburn. Immediately I drank a full glass of Vit D milk. Minutes later, the heartburn went away. Let me say I was skeptical about this at first. But it seems to help my case very much. That's my story. I was desperate to do anything to heal my stomach and esophageal lining. And Vit D milk seems to work very well for me.

Just to let you all I woke up at 8AM and I did not have any more pain in my stomach that used to radiate up my throat to my neck area.  That really uncomfortable feeling is gone!!  Let's see if it will come back tomorrow.  I hope it is not too good to be true.  If this works, I hope you'll try it too for at least a week -- just one glass of WHOLE MILK per day for at least a week.  If it helps you, then please share it so that others can try the same.  If it doesnt help you, then talk about it too so that others may see what kind of a risk they're taking.  But as for me, I'm so thrilled.  I have to admit, it did hurt a little bit yesterday and I became really skeptical about it not working.  I am just really glad that it worked for me.  As of last night and so far today, I am feeling 100% normal again.  Yeah. 

Thinking back on what caused my symptoms.  I think it's one of two things or a combo of both.  I was sitting at a car dealership to get my car serviced.  It ended up being an entire day that I sat in the waiting room at the service dept.  There was only free coffee.  I practically drank coffee to alleviate my hunger.  What a stupid thing that I did.  And also, there were days that I went hungry for 12 hours while I was working in the hospital.  Another stupid thing to do!
