Which Food to Avoid for Acid Reflux

If you’ve been suffering from acid reflux, heart burn and other stomach acid related health problems, you probably also know antacids don’t help, in fact they can even add to your problems.

Many antacids actually block your ability to absorb vital nutrients, minerals and their cofactors.

You may already know that the solution to your acid reflux and stomach acid problems is simply to know which foods to eat and which foods to avoid.

Eating the right whole foods will help reverse your acid reflux, Gastro-esophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) and stomach acid imbalances simply by restoring the best pH for your stomach.

Avoiding foods that cause acid reflux and its symptoms will also aid your digestive system, alleviate heartburn and eventually heal ulcers, quickly, safely and naturally.

Plus by learning to eat more of the right foods your body will have an opportunity to reverse the damage caused by toxic antacid pills and drugs.

Everyone knows absorbing the right calcium is important to healthy bones, but did you know it’s also important for a healthy heart, stomach acid levels and nervous system too?

As long as you’re NOT eating the right foods to avoid acid reflux, you’re going to be tempted to consume more Over-The-Counter (OTC) and prescription antacids that block calcium absorption with aluminum.

It just so happens foods rich in natural calcium are also excellent for avoiding acid reflux diseases.

Toxic aluminum from cookware has already been shown to accumulate in your body, why in the world would you want to eat an aluminum loaded antacid, antacids that only make your acid reflux worse anyway???

University of Alabama at Birmingham, showed that aluminum has neurotoxic effects, which may short out electrical signal in the brain. The study done by their department of pharmacology and neurosciences suggests that the aluminum blocks your cells from binding with calcium.

Scientists have discovered that calcium is important not only for strong bones and a balanced stomach acid pH, but also for the electrical circuits that carry the fastest signals in your nervous system.

By not avoiding foods that cause acid reflux and other gastrointestinal problems you are at risk of being suckered into popping these toxic aluminum containing products. The result can be disastrous once the aluminum accumulates “inside” your nerve cells, permanently interfering with your body’s natural balance of calcium.

Aluminum toxicity has also been shown to alter important calcium related proteins and a type of RNA function in your intestinal tract. These tests showed that the calcium that was blocked increased in the blood samples of chicks. High levels of calcium in your blood can lead to osteoporosis, hardening of the arteries and a weakened immune system caused from a vitamin D deficiency.

All this is directly related to your acid reflux and the foods you eat and the foods you avoid.

Here’s a list of foods to avoid for acid reflux, heart burn and stomach acid issues:

  • Orange juice
  • Grapefruit juice
  • Tomato juice
  • Deep fried potatoes
  • Raw onions
  • Grain fed meats
  • Chicken nuggets
  • Buffalo wings
  • Pasteurized milk products
  • Mac and cheese
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Alcohol
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • High fat baked goods
  • Corn chips
  • Potato chips

Anything with refined sugar, unsprouted grains, refined salt or animal fat are likely to aggravate your acid reflux symptoms.
