Hi.. I have been keeping a record of what I am eating to determine what may cause symptoms. My question is how soon do you get heartburn after eating so you know what caused it. For example I ate spaghetti with red sauce at 6pm for dinner to see if it caused symptoms for me. I was fine all night, no burn. The next morning I had an activia yogurt for breakfast as I always do with no symptoms and around 9 am had bad chest pains and burning. Could this be from the red sauce the night before? I am having trouble trying to relate the cause of my symptoms because they don't occur right after a meal. Any ideas?? I am taking Protonix every am and a zantac at night and have added the dgl licorice before meals and at bedtime

Pepe,
I would not eat anything with tomatoes until you are healed. The sauce is most likely the culprit here. Maybe in your body symptoms take a little longer to manifest themselves. Stay away from citrus, tomatoes and fats for a while.
Avocados are great (very alkaline), tofu for protein.
Great that you're trying the DGL!!!

Thanks I will try to avoid these foods I guess. It is so frustrating because one day I eat something and feel fine, and another day it will bother me. I do believe the licorice is helping tho. I have been using it for about 3 weeks and have noticed improvement. Maybe soon I will be able to go off the zantac. Do you know of any books with recipes for heartburn sufferers?

Pepe,
I posted a very good totally alkaline soup recipe on this site, just look back. Pretty hard to do fine dining with GERD, I would suggest to you to just eat very nutritious food. Steamed fish, chicken - no red meat.
