    I had reflux so bad I now have Barrett's esophagus. I started to cut out starchy foods, and sugar to lose weight and the reflux stopped. Turns out it was gluten that caused the problem for me.

    As long as I avoid wheat, and some other grains, I'm fine. I did some research and found that it's very commom for people to have trouble with digesting wheat.

    Why not try avoiding gluten? I'd say give it 2 weeks. You'd be amazed at how much processed foods have it as an ingredient. Even if it just says 'natural flavor' I have to be careful. I do most meals from scratch now and use amaranth flour for muffins and sauces, and it works fine for that.

    There's also digestive inzymes that can be taken to help. They do a little for me, but avoiding gluten has been the main thing I needed to do. I rarely have any reflux at all.

    Hope this helps.

    i had acid reflux everytime i ate no matter what i ate. Then i started the apple cider vinegar diet and it went away. I take two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in an 8 oz glass of apple juice before every meal.
