How Do You Treat Gerd?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I just don't get it! Avoid certain foods?.. Is that it? Is there any way to get rid of it? I have a tough time figuring out what foods cause my GERD, because i've had it for so long...I guess.

 

I also have a hiatal hernia... Is that fixable? What am I supposed to do about that??

 

I've been googling these things and reading about them... but I think it would make more sense for me to hear it from you guys.

 

Thanks

You don't get rid of it. You live with it.

 

I tried the medications for it and found it was making it worse.

 

As of right now i follow these guidelines:

 

No greasy

No spicy

No rich

No chocolate

No caffine

 

In addition to this i try to eat something starchy every meal. I also eat smaller meals more frequently.

 

I sleep on an incline pillow instead of laying flat, as it makes it worse.

 

As for the hernia, i've heard they can be fixed, though i don't know how.

Okay thanks! I think the only thing I eat out of those is chocolate...my favorite! :( but i cant live without it ha. Are greasy foods just like french fries and stuff?... sorry, stupid question ha.

 

I dont like taking medications, so I never started... even though im not even sure what to take.

 

Is your pillow called a bed wedge?

 

Ok, thank you!

In a sense yes. French frys that are fried are, but those that are baked can be fine.

As for the fruits, those that are acidic can cause issues with GERD, or so i've heard. I don't eat them generally. My GERD caused some damage in my throat that took about a year to heal. I had no wish to make it worse by eating them. :)

 

No such thing as a stupid question :)
