View Full Version : Girl with Acid Reflux seeks relief!
07-08-2009, 05:07 PM
Hello there! I just joined today after 10 years of dealing with acid reflux and many different types of diets that don't work. I was referred to the raw food diet by a person who is also dealing with acid reflux. She raved about it though told me it was quite difficult to maintain. I have been vegan and vegetarian throughout my life, so I doubt it's much different than the type of commitment that already takes. I am interested in getting to know more about the diet, some advice for the diet and about other remedies for acid reflux, also getting to know more people who are dealing with the same issues as myself. My name is Marinella, I am 29 years of age, vegetarian, living in Philadelphia and looking into the raw diet not only for myself, but possibly my future children and my partner.
Thank you and look forward to hearing from you!:p

Hi there, and welcome. I am on 26 days raw and basically ALL RAW has fixed my acid reflux! It was one of the first things to go, yay. On the very occasional time that I eat late at night and have a little bit when I go to bed, I pop an enzyme tablet and am good to go (to sleep :):). I hope it works for you.

Welcome Marinella. Having done various health diets over the years, I found raw to be the simplest one of all. And the most fun too. :)

For me, diet has little to do with it. However... Chocolate can set it off for me. Doesn't always though.
Mainly I have to avoid bending over for any extended period of time. That's a killer for me. I also sleep with a GERD wedge.

get some chia seeds (http://www.therawfoodworld.com/affiliate_show_banner.php?ref=199&affiliate_pbanner_id=1002259)... eat them dry and then have a glass of water 20 minutes later. your acid reflux will be gone!

When I eat raw, I have no heartburn/acid reflux. When I eat SAD I do. Simple as that!!:)

I think the non-raw that sets it off is heavier food, I think (without letting quacks examine me and prescribe noxious substances) I may have a hiatal hernia whereby heavier, less digestible food, settles outside the stomach and causes the esophageal sphincter to allow acid up. Eating bread and other harder-to-digest food emphasises this, where raw or mostly raw with easily digestible foods don't get "stuck" in this place.
The self-diagniosis makes sense to me, anyway.
Since first half-heartedly giving raw a go and ending up liking it, only acid reflux I have had is the one day that I allowed myself a vegeburger between 2 slices of bread.
