I am being checked for several problems by my doctor with no answers yet. My symptoms are similar to acid reflux; feeling like there is food or acid in my throat, nausea, chest and stomach pressure- all associated with eating. I have a very specific lists of foods that either bother me or don't and I'm trying to learn why. Can anyone else relate what foods are good or bad for them?

These bother me:
ham
pork
spices
glass of water or juice by itself
asparagus
raspberries (sometimes)
white bread (sometimes)
apples (sometimes)

These do not bother me:
flaky pastries
fruit that is cooked or processed
chicken broth
white rice
plain cooked eggs
cooked spinach

Hi there camllachick, and welcome to healingwell.  I am glad you have found us for help.  I am also glad you are under doctors care, and trying to fine the answers you need.  I know it can be frustrating to have test after test, and get no answers. 
 
On your list, the only thing I can relate to bothering me, are spices, in my case, I am talking like peprica (sp) and  pepper, like hot spices.  Along with juices, like acidy juices. 
 
When you say these foods are bothering you, could you tell me what is going on after you eat them?  Is that when you experience ALL they symptoms you have listed? 
 
Are you on any medications what so ever?
 
What tests has your doctor done so far?
 
How long have you been experiencing these issues?
 
Other foods that seem to bother me are PIZZA, SPAGHETTI, most anything that is greasy, or fried.
 
My main problem is the acidy, or burning throat, and heartburn. 
 
Please, stick with us, feel free to read old posts, and ask as many questions as you need to in order to get the answers you need!  We will do our best to help you!!!
 
I look forward to hearing more from you!

What I'm looking for is other people's to eat or not eat lists, to maybe correlate to mine.
Eating only certain things is how I am containing my problem at the moment. Antacids(mylanta, alkaseltzer) and acid blockers(zantac) have so far done me no good. My symptom originally was nausea and pain in my stomach or abdomen. Now it has changed to include food or acid in my throat feeling. It always correlates with meals, before and after. This has been going on a month and a half. I am being tested for gall bladder problems because two of my do-not-eats are meats. To me, my symptoms seem more like reflux even though the treatment for that is not helping me. I am here to get more information to prove or rule out acid reflux.

I gave the best advice I feel I could give based on the situation. I would suggest looking through past posts that may be useful to you, that way you can gather some useful information, and better educate yourself. HOpefully, others will be by with their food experiences.

At any rate, I do hope you will stick with us!!!

Again, welcome to healingwell!

Not really any foods anymore. I just try to have a more akaline diet than an acidic one. If possible This is my story:

GERD hit me pretty hard two years ago. However, I have delt with it quite well with a combination of herbal medication, diet, and just paying attention to what impacts my body.

For me I take enzymes, candida Rid pills, and a probiotic as my main mainstay that helped me get rid of GERD. Now I rarely have anything except for an occassional small heartburn. That is even occassional when I drink coffee or have spicy food.


I hope that helps.

Ted, I edited your post for several reasons.  I have noticed that you are duplicating your answer over and over again.  That is against forum rules.  I have kept in tact waht seems to apply to this particular question, as the rest of the information you had didn't apply to this post at all.
 
I love that you want to share your story, and in doing so, please respect that people on here do take medications, and it helps them.  Also, posting the same answer to each question is not a good idea.
 
May I suggest if you feel this strongly about it, please start your own thread maybe titled something along the lines of Alternate Therapies for GERD.
 
If you have any further questions, please feel free to email me, and I will clarify anything you may not understand.
 
Thank you for your cooperation!
