Acid Reflux Foods to Avoid
There are certainly foods to avoid if you want to reduce or eliminate the problem you are experiencing with acid reflux, heartburn or GERD. This is an extremely complex issue and is far to detailed to be discussed thoroughly in a website or single page of a website.
I highly recommend you turn to the "Acid Reflux Diet" book for the most comprehensive and up to date information on this subject. There are hundreds, if not thousands of different food items consumed by individual's world wide.
Each of these food items needs to be broken down and rated from a super food; that you should be eating a few times a week, to other foods that you should NEVER be consuming. In addition, there are food preparation methods that should not be utilized if you ever hope to end these painful symptoms completely.
There is so much useless and just plan false information circulated on the internet and if you happen to be following these suggestions, then in all likelihood you will never end the agony and discomfort caused by acid reflux.
Years ago when a patient went to there doctor for treatment they would be prescribed a "bland diet" and be told to have a glass of milk at the slightest sign of discomfort. Since then it has been determined that milk could possibly be the worst thing you could possibly consume if you suffer from acid reflux, heartburn or GERD.
On one major website I recently read there suggestions for vegetables, which included both peas and cabbage. Neither of these should ever be eating for the following reasons. First, any vegetable that is covered by a skin should not be consumed unless that skin is first removed.
This is because vegetable skins are extremely difficult for you to digest and your stomach is required to go into over-drive producing acid to digest it, which is defiantly not what you want if you suffer from acid reflux.
Second, in the case of cabbage it causes gas. Which if you are fighting acid reflux, heartburn or GERD you really do not want to be having foods that are only going to exasperate the condition. These are just a few short examples of what you should never eat.
Simply put if you ever hope to put these problems behind you and end acid reflux permanently you will need to make changes to your diet. This does not necessarily require drastic changes for most of your meals. There are many food items that can be substituted for what you would normally consume that will not change your diet too much.
However, there are foods or dishes that you can not have in the future. Also, the one meal you will have to make radical changes to is breakfast. What most of the worlds eats today for breakfast is simply terrible for sufferers of acid reflux, heartburn or GERD. It starts out your day in pain which you never can recover from, that is until the next day.
Once again, when you become serious about ending the pain and suffering caused by acid reflux, heartburn and GERD please acquire a copy of the "Acid Reflux Diet" and learn which foods you should avoid completely and which foods are safe to eat.
