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.
