'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

My acid reflux has been getting better

My acid reflux has been getting better. I have started eating most of my regular, even a little salsa and Mexican food. Here are a few meds and foods that really helped my recovery.
Dexilant 60mg morning
Zantac (ranitidine) 150mg night
Pepto a swig when needed
Xanax .25mg when needed for anxiety
Alkaline water alternating with filtered tap water daily
Nature Valley Oat and Honey Bars
Black beans cooked in the Instant Pot (little seasoning)
Pinto beans cooked in Instant pot (little seasoning)
Almond milk
Coconut milk
Chicken noodle soup
Mashed potatoes
Green beans
Salad little Ranch (no tomato)
Breads to soak up acid

Exercise walking and running
Sleep on wedge pillow
Don’t eat less than 4 hours before bed
Eat smaller meals, eat more times per day ( don’t overeat)
Drink lots of water
Keep stress down (Xanax and or deep breathing)
Meditation and or prayer
Chew gum or suck on candy ( saliva coats throat)

Blessings to you all!

Have you stopped those meds or still on them?

I just switched to omeprazole, however it’s spelled. Still on Zantac. Xanax as needed when I feel anxious. As far as the foods, oatmeal, pinto beans, and alkaline water helped the most.

Steven E Ocker how long did it take you to heal? And also do you have esophagitis?

Steven E Ocker
I’m on my 2nd month. I did not have esophagitis

Menon Steven E Ocker so healing is easier for yo. Its a battle for me with esophagitis all this and more is not of much help. Time hopefully will help me.
