Time for some honesty. No doctors will read your text and no distant relatives will hear about your diagnoses. I am curious for those that have been diagnosed with Acid Reflux how many follow:

(A) a very strict low acid diet (Koufman) and never cheating,

(B) follow the diet X% but cheat Y%, 

(C) mostly eat whatever you want and treat the symptoms?

You may need to ask your mate when answering (B).

    Difficult to answer straight boxes

    B -  But  with occasional treats, or trials of different food to see which affect or do not affect my acid production. Not cheats just finding what works for me .so another box  (D) may be more relevent than B.H ope that helps

      Thanks Mo, there are some very good websites that depict the PH levels of most food items. One medical site from Australia is very extensive.

    That is a good question.

    My answer would have to be A

    In 2010, I pursxhased an alkaline water machine.

    Prior to this my sptims were silent or I ignored them.

    I ate raw food only, 90% of the time in 2010. No meat, sodas, raw sugar.

    I began to cook food more in 2011, but continued on alkaline water all the time and everything else.

    2013 my aymtpoms began after light anesthesia,

    and treatment for Hyploric (antibiotics)

    I believe that low acid triggered my condition along with antibiotics.

    I only drink clean water now. I began a 250mg HCL with food today and will slowly increase over time.

    From what I have read it have taken many increases for some to get their reflux under control, then they were able to taper down with time.

    That's my story

    Excellent post... abc1234 ½

    I am “C”

    “Today”….I manage reflux…

    My Relux is…. NOT CAUSED BY:


    LES impairment

    Acid..too much…too little

    SIBO or close or distant relatives of..infections etc.…

    Foods/liquids/dr. good etc. (can eat all foods,

    can drink, coffee, a beer or a glass of San Pellegrino but do avoid too spicy…burns more than a few areas over time) 90% plus of my food intake is Organic..balanced ..infrequent “dine out’s” anymore…but

    in previous years?…far too many.





    Vagal nerve




    I have a Hiatal Hernia

    I have a problem with reflux ONLY when

    I have overeaten …meaning “excess volume”.

    Have had a Brazilian types of “lifestyle ” changes including foods over many Years…in this regard....don’t think I’m unique.

      Thanks Don, the only vice I had left was the occasional buffet. Now that's gone too. If you see any more aliens send them my way. I need someone to take out my frustration on smile.

    Eat what I want and treat the condition. Changing your diet is only dealing with symptoms. Taking the right biotics is getting rid of the problem for good.

    By the way I had to ask my great grandmother for the answer to this question. She is a master mind and has been acclaimed by the Royal family as an oracle. She was eating a peanut butter sandwich while she debated this with me. Luckily you asked this on a thursday, the day of wisdom. If it had been on a monday she always talks rubbish and gets it all wrong.
