I have been diagnosed with GERD for a couple of years. Basically from eating too quickly and not allowing proper digestion.
I did not want to use the medications recommended. I made a couple of simple changes that have dramatically helped;
1/ Eat slowly. Allow digestion to take place
2/ Reduce use of all antacids. Build up the natural stomach acids.
3/ Restrict coffee.
4/ THIS IS THE BIGGIE! EAT WATERMELON- juice, slices whatever-- but eat it every day! It restricts the episodes and severity. I used to have GERD every night- now maybe twice a month-- and am way happier. For personal info.
I am a male; 60 years old; very fit. exercise 2 hours a day and don't eat much meat. Just eat too quickly!
