Using Food to Control Acid Reflux


Learning to Control Acid Reflux.
A key step towards controlling and curing acid reflux disease is learning how to eat. One way to approach eating is through viewing foods as primary, secondary, and tertiary. Primary foods consist of whole grains and proteins. Secondary foods consist of fresh, seasonal vegetables. Tertiary foods include dairy, fruits, and eggs.

For acid reflux sufferers, the primary and secondary group are the most important. Whole grains and proteins soothe the stomach while providing balanced nutritional value as well. Vegetables are extremely important. The high fiber content aids in digestion thereby keeping the stomach acids in the stomach rather than up the esophagus. It's best to limit intake of the tertiary foods, especially citrus fruits. Some tertiary foods like milk and other dairy products can be congesting for the body, making digestion and proper elimination difficult.

How to cure Acid Reflux.
When dealing with acid reflux, your most important ally is your diet. You can gain control over and even heal acid reflux by incorporating delicious foods into your everyday meals and using simple cooking techniques to prepare them. Below is a sample of what to eat and what to avoid:

*Variety of Vegetables (zucchini, potato, carrots, etc.)
*Non-citrus foods (apples, grapes, cucumbers, etc)
