I have found that I can not drink any liquid with a meal, I have to wait at least 1/2 hour or regurgitation becomes a problem. I also make a habit to break up a meal, will have salad then later on my main course.
Sometimes in spite of doing everything right, during a flare up, I still rely heavily on my meds which I hate because of side effects.

Without garlic and citrus (can't do salt high blood pressure) what do you use for seasonings?? Believe someone asked about foods. There is quite a bit of info on SparkPeople. Copied just a few foods and comments under prevention.

Avoid foods that cause the esophageal sphincter to relax during their digestion. These include:

Coffee


Chocolate


Fatty foods


Whole milk


Peppermint


Spearmint



Limit acidic foods that make the irritation worse when they are regurgitated. These include citrus fruits and tomatoes.


Avoid carbonated beverages. Burps of gas force the esophageal sphincter to open and can promote reflux.

I also find that if I keep something in my stomach I feel better. I eat a couple of whole wheat crackers or a toast...anything dry. High protein foods help me too...almonds or a yogurt. Too much fruit can cause flairups. Also bad for me is coffee without anything to eat.

Each day, and in every way, we are getting better and better

Wierdest thing, I know when it is time to change the filter in my PUR Water Machine when the water I drink out of it starts to give me heartburn. Strange, isn't it?

Did your doctor tell you which foods to avoid to prevent heartburn?

we would literally astound ourselves."

It MAY be that you aren't eating enough, or eating too much at one time, or eating a lot of foods like tomatoes, kiwifruit, oranges, pineapple etc. and/or more coffee. Sometimes too much water can cause this, too.
Try having many LITTLE meals during the day. Another thing which helps is a couple spoons of low-fat yoghurt! Try sipping at the water instead of drinking a glassful at time.

I always seem to get heartburn when I am on a diet. I don't have a problem with it any other time.

I have been counting my calories for the past week and a half and I would say every 2 days I end up with heart burn which starts around 3 in the afternoon.
