I have been diagnosed with acid reflux.
I read about it and it's nothing really, but will the medication, omeprazole affect my diet?
I'm definitely going to rattle. I now take
Citalopram, tegretol, omeprazole and diazapan
Hope I can still ride my bicycle!

I am on omeprazole. The main effect on your diet will be that you can enjoy eating a lot of foods you had to avoid. You can now enjoy eating with no after effects. So be strict at keeping an honest record and you should be fine

If looking for natural remedies, try Slippery Elm Lozenges. Tho recommended for singers and throats, it's amazing for reflux.

My husband and I were also able to rid ourselves of acid reflux with a low carb/high fat diet. If that's not an option you would be interested in pursuing, I have heard that people have good results using Organic Apple Cider Vinegar(Bragg's is one brand, but I'm sure there are others) to treat acid issues. It must be the kind with the "Mother" in it to be effective, I believe. Wouldn't hurt to Google it and check it out, since it's a natural remedy.

I suffered from acid problems for years and even had surgery to correct problems associated with reflux. After being on medication all that time, I found a solution to my problem without meds. Readers Digest mag. ran a piece about reflux and recommended to take a teaspoon of regular yellow mustard. I tried it and it WORKS for me. No more meds,or reflux for me! Who would think mustard could change a life...it did mine. Good luck!

Thanx for all your responses.
Excuse my ignorance but what does LCHF stand for?

Google the benefits of probiotics and prebiotics for reflux. We all take them here. Working to get off my pantoprazole (protonix) by using the prebiotics.

Natural remedies also include aloe vera juice, check out the link http://about-avp.com/useful-properties/the-information-about-acid-reflux-aloe-vera-treatment/ and milk. Water with a teaspoon of baking soda also helped me several times. But if you doctor prescribed you the medications, of course you'd better follow his instructions.

I took omeprazole but it was my goal to get off of all medications because they all have side effects; some not as much as others. I took apple cider vinegar, as has already been suggested, and it cleared my problems completely. It's not the easiest thing to drink and I would mix a couple of tablespoons with some water and try to get it down with a couple of swallows. Another plus, and I have no proof, I really think it kicked up my metabolism. I noticed that I lost a couple of pounds I was really wanting to shed in a couple of weeks. Good luck!

I also cured acid reflux that I had for years by drinking a tablespoon of Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and a tablespoon of honey in a cup of warm water before bed for about a month. I was prescribed Tagamet, but I did not want to take it, so I tired an alternative.

Acid reflux can be caused by low stomach acid. Jimmy Moore has a great podcast with Dr. Avery Carpenter. It is only about 30 minutes long.

She starts talking about low stomach acid right at 11:00 minutes into the podcast.

I remember taking that when I had a bad head cold because the post nasal drip affected my esophagus and it made me nauseous from having to take it an hour before eating. Are you able to eat before taking it? Also due to that I didn't want to eat much. I pray it goes well and provides relief.
