It's an acid food if you look at ALKALINE diet. From my research, almonds are not acidic.
I know it's hard for us to start thinking of ACIDIC/ALKALINE when we think of foods. But with GERD, that is exactly what one must start thinking of. Apparently there are people who are on these drugs for years. The only way they are helping themselves is with drugs and maybe avoiding a few things.
To HEAL YOUR ESOPHAGUS, you have to use supplements to help heal it (DGL licorice, marshmallow root, aloe vera, slippery elm lozenges) and eat LOW-ACID food. Charcoal capsules absorb extra acid in stomach (don't take at the same time as any vitamin supplement though). Take a multiple vitamin and calcium every day. I already posted that I take TwinLab CALCIUM CITRATE WITH MAGNESIUM, not only absorbs extra acid but helps bone density (easily digested and absorbed, best form of calcium to take for bones), it does NOT CONSTIPATE. If you take TUMS for example, they contain CALCIUM CARBONATE and that does constipate.
Just google ALKALINE DIET to get alot of information. I posted in Sept. if you look back.
