Diet changes have helped me a lot, and a lot of others on the forum. I have cut out wheat/gluten, lactose (except cheddar cheese which is very low in lactose and I am able to tolerate it) acidic foods, raw vegetables and high fiber foods. I also eat lower fat (lean beef, chicken, turkey) and avoid fried foods. I am able to have alcohol in moderation, but I have to either drink it on the rocks or mix it with water (coconut rum has been my top choice mixed with water.) I also drink alkaline water and use papaya enzymes. I take Magnesium, B12, Calcium and D3. It took me a while to figure out the best plan for me.
