I am certain I read elsewhere that spicy foods DO NOT cause heartburn. However I do know that the only times I get heartburn is when I am upset at work.

I've found that 2 things help mine a lot - one is losing weight, and the other is avoiding carbohydrates. Last year when I lost 25lb on a low carbohydrate diet, the heartburn vanished entirely. When I started eating "normally" again, including carbohydrates, and regained all but 4lb, the heartburn returned with a vengeance.

Good advice- I have GERD symptoms at various times of the day and after eating a variety of food. Noting times and foods will help me pinpoint what is causiing my GERD.

Food allergies also contribute to GERD. My GERD largely abated after my celiac disease diagnosis and eating gluten-free. I control it with eating smaller meals more often - and I eat more alkaline-based foods (ie fruits and veggies). The food diary is SUCH a great tool. IgG antibody tests might be helpful too! - thanks for the article.
