I'm curious as to what everyone here drinks throughout the day that does not give them problems with their GERD?

Before all my symptoms popped up, I used to drink a lot of soda's and grape juice. Now it seems I can only drink Tea and that still bothers me most of the time. Water gives me the worst Heartburn of them all for some reason. It sure seems like other than Tea, all the options are either highly acidic or carbonated. I'm trying to stay away from dairy as well. Any suggestions? I feel like I'm always in need of something to quench my thirst.

I drink filtered water .. at least a quart or more per day. Stay totally away from anything carbonated as well as orange juice.

I also drink non carbonated drinks I mix up from drink mix I buy that is artifically sweetened. Grape juice should be okay as long as it's not carbonated.

I drink almond milk with dinner. Actually, everything I swallow gives me discomfort but we must keep ourselves hydrated...

HeplMeh, have you tried drinking the "Throat Coat" herbal tea that you posted in another thread? That seems like a good one that would be helpful instead of painful.

I felt the same way while I was having the severe problems and was on the Nexium or antacids. Like I couldn't get enough to drink, and when I did drink water, it was very painful. And that was just water! Forget about sodas, black or green tea, juices, or Kool-Ade/Crystal Lite type drinks!

Now, I'm drinking herbal teas similar to what you found, some spearmint tea that I brew from the backyard garden, and aloe juice with honey. Since I'm doing better and healing, sometimes I have a half glass of milk. I wouldn't recommend it unless you're pretty well back to normal, though!

I hope you start feeling better soon. It's no fun to feel sick all the time.

@WellWoman

Yes I have been, I am drinking 2 or so cups a day. I have to say it is a really tasty tea and has a little sweetness to it just as is, but I add a packet of Stevia in the raw to a large mug of it just to sweeten it up just a bit more. So far I can handle the added sweetness, and oh how I miss the taste of sweets. It's got a very pleasant sweet coating you can feel as it goes down your throat. "Throat Coat" is the perfect name for it. I'm still looking for something else to drink though, as I am just getting tired of tea's in general.

I can't drink coffee or regular tea any more but I find rooiboos tea with honey is fine. It is the only tea that is alkaline. Plain water is what I drink otherwise.

I've had GERD for a couple years now and decided that I had gone to the hospital enough times for heart attack symptoms so I decided to try the All Raw vegan vegetable juices for two meals and a salad at lunch. So far my Gerd is getting better. I don't have the horrible pains I used to have. In the mean time I still take 150mg Ranitidine twice a day. I have lost 15 pounds, my head feels less foggy, I feel more energetic and sleep better.
So for the day this is my meal plan -
AM juice - cabbage,carrots,apple,ginger,celery
LUNCH - salad (no animal products or dairy) with nuts
DINNER juice cabbage, carrots, apple, avocado, spinach
SNACK - fruits and almonds
HYDRATION - water (at least 1500 ml per day)

On the weekend 1 day I have cooked food with my family.
So far, the sacrifice is worth it! scool

water, just water, caffeine is a trigger for reflux as are ALL juices because they have citric acid added to them. once in blue I will have a decaff tea but decaff can have up to 7% caffeine and even decaff triggers. Make smoothies with high alkaline to drink, here's a good one, Pear, celery, cucumber, spinach and parsley, it's delicious and VERY alkaline!

I also agree about NO animal products! I have been vegan for 35 years, and I cannot imagine how anyone with LPR or gerd can possibly deal with animal products, they are way too acidic!

This sounds like something I'd like to try. Do you just mix it as is, or do you use something like water, coconut water or soy milk as a base?

Alkaline water. Chicken, turkey and fish are all safe according to many GERD diet writers. Some people can tolerate extra lean beef.
