Is it a Myth or a Fact?

I cannot do anything to help my acid reflux. Only my doctor can...


Of course you can do a lot! Most patients with reflux actually never see a doctor and even fewer see a digestive disease specialist. Changes in lifestyle are important and have a positive impact on acid reflux disease. Dietary changes include avoidance of heavy meals, chocolate, mint, onions, peppers etc. In short, anything that is good to the palate may be bad for the reflux. Not eating for at least two hours before bedtime and avoiding bedtime snack are other important dietary measures. Raising the head end of the bed (use 6" block under the bed) further prevents acid reflux during sleep. Smoking is generally bad for everything and that includes reflux disease.
