    Is acid reflux putting a damper on your life? Are you losing sleep because of it? If this is the case, then the following article is the answer to your prayers. By taking the time to read it, you will be arming yourself with what you need to get back your life.

    It is important that you don't eat too quickly if you suffer from acid reflux. The slower you eat, the better! Not only will it allow you to begin to break down the food in your stomach, it will ensure that you feel full when you really are full, something that doesn't happen if you eat too quickly.

    Fatty foods no more! Fried chicken, pizza, chicken wings and potato chips are the enemy of the GERD sufferer. These foods cause your sphincter to relax, allowing the contents of your stomach, acid and all, to rise back up into your esophagus. Go for meals full of vegetables and lean protein instead.

    The more fluid you drink during your meal, the more volume is placed in your stomach. This causes more distension in the stomach and adds pressure to the lower sphincter of the esophagus, creating the perfect condition for acid reflux. Try drinking between meals and drink water in small sips rather than big gulps.

    Smokers need to quit if they suffer from acid reflux. Nicotine can cause acid reflux to worsen. You should quit at your own pace instead of quitting cold turkey and taking the risk of upsetting your stomach even more. Talk to your doctor if you need to a patch or a prescription medication.

    The food you consume each day will make a difference in your reflux. Avoiding acidic foods, peppers, greasy foods and alcoholic beverages could help. These foods and drinks could be causing the problem. Also, avoid eating less than three hours before you bed time. Going to bed with a full stomach could make for a rough night and morning.

    You want to avoid foods that contain a high amount of acid in order to reduce acid reflux attacks. Examples of foods that are known to have a high acidic content are grapefruit, tomatoes, and pineapple. If you do have a history of issues after eating these foods, it may be best to avoid eating them late at night, or entirely.

    Certain foods cause acid reflex more than other foods. Keeping a diary of your eating habits can help you understand when acid reflux is at its worst. After you've eaten, if you begin to feel acid reflux symptoms, write down what you ate, what the symptoms are, and how they are affecting you.

    Contracting the abdominal muscles can make food that is in your stomach to make its way back into the esophagus. This is why you need to wait until at least one hour after eating before you attempt to do any physical exercise. You should also avoid any other types of physical exertion directly after meals.

    Learn to manage the stress in your life if you've been experiencing frequent symptoms of acid reflux. A nervous stomach will certainly exacerbate your problem and make diagnosing the real causes difficult. Eat in a calm environment and savor each bite. Forget about the stress in your life at least during the meal; it's better for your mind and body.

    The food you consume each day will make a difference in your reflux. Avoiding acidic foods, peppers, greasy foods and alcoholic beverages could help. These foods and drinks could be causing the problem. Also, avoid eating less than three hours before you bed time. Going to bed with a full stomach could make for a rough night and morning.

    Try to avoid eating chocolate if you have issues with acid reflux. The caffeine and alkaloids that are contained in chocolate tend to disagree with people that have this problem. If you must have chocolate, each it in small quantities and opt for a darker chocolate since it has antioxidants.

    Tell your doctor about all of the medications that you are taking at the moment, as there can be a relation between them and your acid reflux. Medications can worsen your symptoms and reduce the effectiveness of your stomach and esophageal function. A drug-free lifestyle may be the answer to your acid reflux.

    If you smoke, you need to quit. Obviously, there are many reasons why you should quit, but if you suffer from acid reflux, this is yet another reason. Smoking slows down your digestion and reduces your saliva production, which worsens acid reflux symptoms. In addition, smoking harms your LES muscle, further worsening your acid reflux. Quitting this terrible habit can significantly improve your acid reflux, not to mention all the other benefits.

    Avoid foods that trigger acid reflux. These include alcohol, caffeinated beverages such as coffee, tea and soda, fatty foods, spicy foods and acidic foods such as tomatoes. When you are suffering from acid reflux, eat a variety of fruits and vegetables, lean proteins such as broiled fish and chicken and enriched grains.

    Surgery may be an option to help control your acid reflux, and you will need to speak with a doctor about it. The most effective procedure for this condition is fundoplication, which involves creating a new valve that can reduce the amount of acid that gets into your esophagus. Although surgery is an extremely scary thing, it can permanently end your acid reflux, so you might want to consider it!

    If you experience heartburn after eating a large or spicy meal, try taking an acid relieving tablet. Sometimes this is enough to help, but you may also need to loosen your clothing around your waistline. Acid reflux medication is a available either by prescription or over the counter if you experience this condition often.

    If you are a fast eater, you might be causing your own reflux problems. Instead of eating your meal at lightning speed, try putting your fork or spoon down between each bite for at least a few seconds. Pace your meal and enjoy each bite, and you might be surprised by how fast you find relief.

    Exercise every day. Exercise brings numerous benefits, including a lower incidence of reflux pain. Exercise ensures your digestive system continues to work smoothly. If your stomach is upset after exercising has occurred, you may be overdoing it.

    Start using more honey if you have acid reflux. Even though studies haven't proved that honey directly aids in acid reflux reduction, it can reduce other symptoms that potentially contribute to your acid reflux. As a result, consuming honey can indirectly improve your acid reflux. Do not buy pasteurized honey, though.

    No one should have to live with acid reflux. The condition may happen to millions, but that doesn't mean you have to give in to it. Acid reflux is nothing but a temporary annoyance. Take control of your digestive system by using this article's tips. Your body with thank you with relief.
