hi imalukatic ~
thany you for the suggestions.
You're very welcome, kandinsky.
Another thing you might try is poaching any meat or fish you eat. I started that recently and noticed what a remarkable difference that makes also. I've been eating everything as plain as possible, using only seasoned salt to flavor with and just a touch of butter on veggies. I've given up on all grains for the time being, they just seem too heavy for the acidy stomach and cause problems every time. And do have your pH tested. A month ago when mine was in the normal alkaline range I was fine and eating just about everything. But now that my pH is completely acidic again...back came the stomach problems. I don't think this is a coincidence. Today was my 3rd morning in a row waking up without that gawd awful bitter acidy taste in my mouth, no tight gaggy throat, and no coughing/choking. So I'm obviously on the right path. I hope this helps you and gives you some much needed relief also. Good luck!
