Avoid eating anything at least 2 hours before going to bed. Avoid spicy foods, if you must have the spicy, dring a glass of milk afterwards. NEVER eat while lying down and take your time eating. Also avoid alot of pepper.

suggested by [unspecified] on Saturday, March 24, 2007

Can't breathe well, can't eat, can't sleep well...I thought GERD was going to kill me till i found Mavello Alkaline Antioxidant water! My hyperacidity was curbed within one week. Now perfectly ok. It works for my friend too. Try it!

Gerd gone
suggested by Vera on Wednesday, February 7, 2007

Years ago, I suffered from GERD. It had gotten so bad that I went to the hospital for it. They prescibed a medicine which helped for a while, then stopped helping. I read about papaya enzyme tablets in an alternative healing book. I would chew 3 of them after every meal. After a few weeks, my problem disappeared.

No soy
suggested by Maria on Tuesday, January 30, 2007

Stop eating any un-fermented soy (tofu, tvp) product and it will help immediately. Tempeh seems to be OK in moderation. Also, no: peppermint, ginger, tumeric, cloves--all of them relax that valve and allow the acid to shoot up--even though they say some of those soothe the stomach--they don't work for GERD.

My brother says someone told him while overseas during Desert Storm to drink hot pepper juice out of the jar after meals to offset his heartburn. He has done it ever since and insist it works. He asked his family doctor about it when he returned to the states and he said the reason it works is because it adjusts the acid level of the stomache in some way.

Adapt the Paleolithic diet for a 2 weeks. You will se results. (Lean meats/vegetables/fruits/no dairy/no grains at all, in that order). Read about it for more details and understanding. PS: What's with putting dairy in everything when 2/3 of the world can't properly process/digest it it??

Mattress Genie Wedge
suggested by [unspecified] on Tuesday, December 12, 2006

I purchased the Mattress Genie to raise my mattress about 8 inches while I sleep. It does help and I recommend it. I bought it at and it is way cheaper than an adjustable bed. It comes with a remote control and is adjustable, so it's much easier than just a pillow.
