Acid Reflux and Sugar

Research shows that eliminating sugar and refined carbohydrates can help control acid reflux.  A very low-carbohydrate diet improves gastroesophageal reflux and its symptoms.  That’s the title of a study that was published in Digestive Disease Science, 2006.

In addition, here are some other dietary interventions to help you heal acid reflux:

  • Eliminate dairy and gluten
  • Eliminate alcohol, caffeine, citrus, tomato-based foods, and spicy foods.
  • Don’t eat within 3 hours before bed.
  • Don’t eat junk food.
  • Avoid processed foods.
  • Eat cooked foods, like fish, chicken, lightly steamed veggies, and brown, red or wild rice, and quinoa; include veggies juices and  green smoothies; avoid raw food for now.
  • Eat smaller, more frequent meals, at least 4 a day.

Include Natural Remedies to Soothe the Gut

  • Take 2 to 3 capsules of digestive enzymes with each meal.  I recommend Ness #4 and 16
  • Re-inoculate the gut with healthy bacteria by using probiotics.  I recommend HMF Forte.
  • Try 75 to 150 mg of zinc carnosine twice a day between meals — this has been extensively studied and is used frequently in Japan.
  • Take 3 to 5 grams of glutamine powder in water twice a day to help heal the gut lining.
  • Chew 2 to 3 chewable tablets of DGL (a form of licorice) 15 minutes before meals.  Do not use licorice candy.
  • Take 200 to 400 mg of magnesium citrate or glycinate twice a day.
