Acid Reflux Disease Diets
There are many different medications for the quick relief of acid reflux disease. However, an easy and effective long term solution can be as simple as following an acid reflux diet.
The first thing to do is eat smaller meals more frequently throughout the day. If you do this, your stomach will produce less acid for the smaller amount of food, therefore less acid will be available to enter the esophagus. The type of foods to avoid with acid reflux are foods that are low in fat, all vegetables(not fried), non citrus fruits, decaffinated beverages, and non spicy foods. Foods that would aggrevate or cause reflux and should be avoided are high fat foods(especially fast food), alcohol, chocolate, foods containing caffeine, peppermint and spearmint, Onions, and tomato products.
