I have been a heartburn sufferer for at least 30 of my 45 years, with GERD for the last 5 years at least. I've tried more diets and supposed remedies than I can remember; some provided temporary relief, others none at all. My doctors recommended the same tired advice: Avoid fatty, spicy foods, stay away from tomatoes, alcohol, citrus, etc., don't lay down after eating, wear loose fitting clothes, eat a high carbohydrate, low fat diet, etc. And, if that doesn't work, there's always the pills. Seems they were always pushing the pills.
