    I used to have awful reflux. Now it's gone. Can even drink a good amount of coffee and alcohol.

    Don't eat 3 hours before bed.

      It is simple... go buy some really good digestion emzymes take 2 before each meal and 2 more at bed.
      In about 2 weeks it will be gone if not sooner. When signs of the acid has gone take as needed.

      It is from your gut, when your gut has what it needs to digest there will be no issues

      Throw out all you tums ,gavascon and all prescriptions that have to do with acid reflex you will no longer need them

        Don't drink anything with you meals. Seriously. It helps keep the stomach acid undiluted so it will work on the food. Many people don't produce enough stomach acid, and that's why they have reflux. Sounds weird, but it is true. I can't digest gluten at all, and I have low stomach acid - that's why the reflux always happened.

          I battled reflux for a long time. Avoid moo juice, as it can actually make things worse (even though it seems to calm them down). What really helped me was acidophilus tablets, exercise, and changing my diet. We went from drinking 6 gallons of milk per week, to drinking almond milk. I still enjoy cheese & greek yogurt, and ice cream, but moo juice has gone buh bye

            From the couple of books I've read on Acid Reflux, the main cause of reflux is not TOO MUCH acid but TOO LITTLE. Apparentely, 9 out of 10 cases of reflux is down to low acid production.

            I started taking a over the counter tablet called Betaine Hydrochloride which puts acid into your stomach. I take one before my main meal in the evening and never get reflux anymore. However, since going primal a few weeks ago, I've started to cut them out and not noticed any reflux. I had a big Angus steak the other night and would normally suffer without my Betaine Hydrochloride, but felt no ill effects without taking the tablet.

              I haven't had any reflux related issues since quitting grains, sugars and processed crap. I personally think that had the most to do with why I dont get reflux anymore. You have a good point with the low acid thing, but I have been on acid inhibitors twice prior from two ulcers (or the same one re-opened)I developed from the advil and other Ibuprofens I used to take daily. So, I know I was making more than adequate stomach acid. I cut out the stuff above and was able to get rid of all the reflux.

                Once I cut out soda my heartburn subsided for a week or two, then came back. I figured it might be tied to caffeine, so I stopped all coffee intake and only have tea a few times a month. Zero heartburn since.

                  Good for you.

                  Just goes to show that just because people have the same symptoms doesn't mean they have the same problem.

                    If it would be gallstone, it would be something serious and should be taken cared of right away. There's a new concept today that doesn't include removing your gall bladder in surgery, just the gallstone itself.
