Acid Reflux Diet

 Aid The Natural Cure for Acid Reflux With Diet

The proper acid reflux diet does have a place on a natural cure website so I have included it for you to review. Although I personally don't believe this bs, to much acid is not the problem. See the Cause of Acid Reflux and the natural cure for acid reflux pages.

Certain foods and lifestyle tend to promote gastroesophageal reflux so below is a list of foods to avoid:

Coffee, alcohol, and calcium supplements are stimulants of gastric acid secretion so avoiding these helps. Foods high in fats and smoking reduce lower esophageal sphincter competence so avoiding these tends to help as well. Having more but smaller meals also reduces the risk of acid reflux as it means there is less in the stomach at any one time.

Also avoid:

eating for 2 hours before bedtime
sodas that contain caffeine
chocolate and peppermint
spicy foods like pizza
acidic foods like oranges and tomatoes
fried and fatty foods

The best acid reflux diet is the alkaline diet since alkalinity buffers acidity in the body. A person would just eat at least 80% of his foods from the alkaline side of the chart below. The health benefits can be enormous since the body must be alkaline to be able to absorb nutrients and eliminate wastes from the cells. <B>I agree with this!</B>

There are two kinds of alkaline and acid forming foods. One of course is the acids or alkaline substances the foods themselves contain. The other is the acid or alkaline forming ability of a food after it is digested. Take for instance a lemon which is very acidic, but once digested it has an alkalizing effect in the body. The absolute best foods for the alkaline diet and to raise body ph are not surprisingly green.
