There are some simple rules, some foods to avoid, and a sleeping position that are proven to limit, and even eliminate GERD and the GERD effect.
Rules to follow:
1. Do not eat later than 3 hours before plan to sleep. Generally, try to eat early in the evening, and always make the evening meal a light one.
2. Reduce your weight.
3. Stop smoking
4. Do not wear very tight clothing that could constrict the abdomen
5. Generally do not eat large meals, but smaller ones, and in the evening before reclining, do not eat any food on the restricted list.
6. Before sleeping, spend a few moments at a window and do some deep breathing, inhaling and exhaling deeply.
This will energize your nervous system and can assist in the prevention of GERD if the other measures are also followed.
Dietary Restrictions: The evening meal must not be large, or heavy, and completed no later than 3 hours before your intended sleep.
