'Gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD, is a digestive disorder that affects the lower esophageal sphincter (LES), the ring of muscle between the esophagus and stomach. Many people, including pregnant women, suffer from heartburn or acid indigestion caused by GERD

Any suggestions for hot morning drinks that don't stir up reflux. I cannot drink coffee at all.

Joanne Marie Day
Decaf tea

Kathy Thomson Cyna
Ginger tea I use to drink hot tea haven't had it in 2 months.

Emily Cook coffee with baking soda in it :) ! you can hardly taste the soda and it neutralizes the coffee's acidity

Michelle Trayling Cockerill
Oh wow, I am going to try this. How much soda would you use in a cup of coffee?

Fiona Baines
I tried this with the tiniest amount of baking soda...you can't taste it they said... 🤮

Emily Cook
Michelle Trayling Cockerel use 1/4 tsp. I wouldn't suggest doing this every day though. Just on days when you really need the boost, because baking soda isn't the best for the kidneys long term and is relatively high in sodium (a teaspoon is 1,200 mg and you're supposed to have up to 2,000 mg daily, but if you're low in salt in your diet 1/4 tsp is nothing)

Emily Cook
Fiona Baines did you add in cream and sugar too? I'm drinking it as we speak to prepare me for finals studying and with my flax milk and maple syrup in it i can't taste it. it actually tastes nice and smooth!

Emily Cook
Michelle Trayling Cockerel actually some people say even an eighth of a teaspoon will work

Michelle Trayling Cockerill
Thanks for the advice, I will give it a try.. I have to have cream and sugar, I can't drink it without.

Emily Cook
Michelle Trayling Cockerel you surely won't taste it then, just as long as you stick with 1/4 or 1/8 of a teaspoon (depending on how bad your reflux is i guess. no problem!

Carrie Lombardi Larrabee
I've been doing the pinch of baking soda for a week and it really works. :)

Emily Cook
Carrie Lombardi Larrabee just remember not to do it daily for long term! It messes with your calcium a bit

Stephanie Jones
I miss coffee so much😔

Fiona Baines
Emily Cook I just have sugar, but my coffee just tasted salty, maybe I'm just extra sensitive. Glad it works for you though. I'd love to have a coffee 😔

Mary Garrett
Doctor told me it's not the coffee it's the caffeine in the coffee that gets your stomach..

Emily Cook
Mary Garrett hm.... coffee is also very acidic tho

Mary Garrett
alcohol caffeinated products, such as coffee, soda, and tea
citrus fruits
fatty foods
peppermint and spearmint
spicy foods
Mary Garrett Certain substances can irritate the esophagus or weaken the lower esophageal sphincter (LES). A weakened lower esophageal sphincter can lead to the backward flow of stomach contents — and that causes acid reflux. ... caffeinated products, such as coffee, soda, and tea. chocolate.

Stephanie Jones
I only drank decaf.

Emily Cook
I guess to each their own. Coffee with baking soda doesnt bother me

Mary Garrett
Yep each their own I guess.

Michele Pratt
Ginger tea with a little bit of honey. Not too hot as hot drinks can aggravate Gerd.

Saloni Shah
Warm water with manuka honey .

Mary Garrett
People doctor told me it's not the coffee it's the caffeine in the coffee that give you the reflex..

Denise Mager
It's not the caffeine in the coffee it's the acid in the coffee. I'd love to give your doctor a lesson

Amy Laroche
Caffeine can also be a trigger but could acid is big. Even low acid coffee is bad. I can't eat beans or seeds either so it might also have something else in it that triggers. Plus the milk most people use in coffee is also a common trigger.

Nancy Wilson
Fresh ginger root, in boiling water, let steep 5 min, add 1 tbsp honey. My throat & tummy love it

Mary Essenburg
I like green tea or ginger tea, sometimes add honey.

Iennob Mahnob
Don't drink hot drinks at all and let your meal cool a bit before you eat. I am drastically improved since I stopped hot drinks.

Amy Laroche
I switched to black tea w fairly good results. Need my caffeine!
