I've never had acid reflux unless I simply over ate way too much, or I was extravagant with my orange juice intake. I had to earn the pain. Now I eat anything and my GI track is on fire, and I noticed it started when I moved and had less access to natural foods my father grew or butchered for us. I know that hormones cause the hatch to the GI track to loosen during pregnancy, and I also know milk, meats, and heated plastics contain hormones or false hormones that react like female hormones in our bodies. I feel the affects severely after meals when my mother in law cooks, because she pays no heed to what she puts in her food chemically, and I grew up not building tolerence. The less chemicals I eat, the less acid reflux I have. Could the abundance of GERD related to lactose, and unexplained onset of severe symptoms be related to the unadvertised content of our foods? I just know I was healthy, and now I can't seem to stop feeling sick, and it started when my free source of natural, home grown food stopped.

Discuss!

I think the junk that they put in foods affect everyone in one way or another. Preservatives, I think are the biggest culprits. As are all the dyes they put in to make stuff "look better". I feel better in summer and I think its because of the availability of home grown vegies etc in the farmers markets we have. I try to stay away from canned as much as possible.Who knows what hormones are in the meat we eat and the milk products we consume.My cousin was a dairy farmer and I was shocked at all the different "shots" they gave the cattle. Thats sure to go in the milk. You are right I think. Guess we have to be very aware but sometimes we can't avoild stuff. Hope you do ok.

I eat organic as much as possible now as well as gluten free. Preservatives are full of acid

Since I moved to Finland and started eating incredibly healthily was when my GERD absolutely freaked out. I was eating very large portions, but the food itself was very healthy and with fewer additives and preservatives. It has baffled me from the beginning. In America, I ate take out ALL THE TIME, fatty foods, and artificial foods. Hardly ever and fruits and vegetables. It was so bad here in Finland that I started a vegan diet and it still didn't back off. Now that I'm back in America, I'm eating like crap again and have been doing well (off my PPI, I might add) for a solid month. I am so confused and frustrated. It makes me not want to go back to Finland for fear of GERD flaring up again for no apparent reason. I would love if anyone has any ideas to spitball them!
