 After suffering 5 years factors that helped me on road to recovery... it took more than pills and also helps with IBS too.
 
1 NEXIUM
 
2.. KEEPING A DAILY DIARY OF FOOD INTAKE AND HOW YOU FEEL AFTER IT .
(its tiresome and seems obbsesive but keep at it for at least a month you will prob notice something before end of month ) THEN LOOK BACK AND SEE IF THERE ARE ANY TRIGGER FOODS.
 
3. SLEEPING WITH BED TILTED UP AT 45 DEGREE ANGLE
 
4. STOPPED ALCOHOL COMPLETELY AND SMOKING
the pain of the gastric was bad enough i didnt even question stopping and used allen carrs book.
 
5 RELAXATION THERAPY CD ( coby zvikler ) 

kind of hypnosos for relaxation because i suffered from bad panic attacks through the gastric, it gave me such a fear of being sick i got into a vicious circle which was a vicious circle that had to be stopped.
 
6. NO EATING AFTER 8.30PM 
 
I have been gastric and panic attack free for over a year now , no alcohol or smoking for 4 years.
 
MY trigger foods were anything with pips and seed like inside like strawberries and tomatoes. Bananas especially ripe ones the more ripe the worse it was, beef and white bread.
 
I wish everone one well and there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Interesting that strawberries and ripe bananas were triggers. I wasn't told by doctors to stay away from them. I'm wondering now if I should. How about cucumbers (since they have seeds)?

I dont like cucumber so i dont know about that, i wasnt told by doc either only found out by doing the food diary suggested by the doctor , all i would say is use the food diary idea see what happens. Its worth a try, or try cutting out and see if there is any difference , good luck !!

I agree with Donna that a FOOD DIARY is an absolute necessity to figure out your trigger foods.

You will never remember what you ate that could have caused you a serious flareup or foods that continue to make your life miserable.

ALKALINE foods cured me along with DGL licorice but I can see that many of you are not going to try it. Remember, not all alkaline foods are good foods for GERD people!!! I posted all the foods I ate.
For example, one easy one is sweet potatoes (the white ones not Yams, although yams are better than regular potatoes), they are alkaline.
I posted a great alkaline vegetable soup with soy beans for protein. If you don't want the soy beans, add some tofu right before eating and you will get alot of protein from that.
I am now cured of GERD but learned alot about alkaline foods and still eat many of them.
I posted all the information on alkaline foods, just research back on this site.

DANIE, there are sweet potatoes that are white?  I thought that there were only orange sweet potatos.  I know that orange sweet potatos are incredibly healthy.  But they are no good for us?
