After trying the Zantac, Prilosec, Nexium stuff, I still get the gerd (mostly at night). It is so uncomfortable with constant acid pressure causing me to burp to relieve the pressure. Has anyone tried eating yogurt with active L acidophilus? I've been trying to get some relief for over 3 weeks now. Had the chest xray, lung function test, and endoscopy, and all ok, but still have super uncomfortable, super full feeling after eating (only a little). Lost weight (most likely from not eating much volume). Any suggestions or experiences with yogurt?

I eat 1/2 yogurt daily to help my digestion. You could consider taking a probiotic supplement to help even more. But it is unlikely that either of these alone will relieve your GERD symptoms. If you are considering changing your diet, you could check out the Fast Track for Heartburn thread.

I take a high quality enzyme/probiotic supplement with each meal. I do eat yogurt but not to provide the acidophilus.

When I do have yogurt I usually have goat milk (easier to digest) and make sure it's fat free or low fat and doesn't have too much sugar.

Can't hurt!

Thanks for the suggestion sunbeam48! I actually had a yogurt a few hours ago and so far so good. I'll check out that Fast Track for Hearburn thread too. Appreciate it!

Which enzyme/probiotic supplement do you take? There's so many different brands. What am I looking for? the acidophilus? And you're right, it can't hurt! It's so frustrating! Thank you.

I eat yogurt almost daily and started taking a probiotic a couple of months ago but I can't tell that it's helped. I wish I could find something that helps!

I like the FAGE yogurt a lot, that does help. I've noticed if it's blueberry it calms better than strawberry. I'm sure the honey one would be even better.

FFF it's called Digest Gold + Probiotics. It is made by Enzymedica and I got it at Whole Foods. It was 24.00 or so for only 45 capsules but I heard it is the best product of it's kind so if I'm going to do it I want it to actually make a difference!
