Hi. I am looking for any advice other than the usual non-helpful advice. I know about elevating the bed, no alcohol, no chocolate Sad , no caffeine-I cheat here, no garlic, no spices, no fat, no nothing.... I eat a very clean diet. I have read every book and tried every diet. Yes I read dropping acid. I react to all fruits except banana's.. I've been to 4 G.I specialists, been scoped 3 times, had a ph monitoring (fun), a esophageal telemetry test and an esophageal x-ray test to show reflux. Anybody else with this problem and a solution I have not tried? Apple cider vinegar tore me a new one so forget that too.

Did you find out if you have Hiatal Hernia when you talked to your doctor? Hiatal hernias occur more often in women, people who are overweight, and people older than 50.

I have had all the tests and I do not have a hernia. I know all the websites and all the current info. I have tried paleo in case it's grains, no sugar, no wheat, no dairy, etc etc.. This came on out of the blue like almost 2 years ago. I am an athlete with a left ventricular hypertrophy from endurance exercise and my BMI is 20. Not over weight anymore but have to maintain the 40 pound loss from ten years ago. Did put on some x-mas pounds though. (7) I do lift weights but nothing over 50 pounds all together. I have had every test there is and there is no reasonable explanation for it. How can chicken breast, banana's and millet give you heartburn. My doctor is kinda dee da dee anyway. Not open to anything other than conventional garbage. Thanks though.

I know that a teaspoon of baking soda in 8 ounces of water is good for relieving heartburn, but don't know in your case.

Heartburn is a common symptom of gluten intolerance. When I gave up gluten and stopped eating in the evening my nighttime heartburn went away completely.

Not sure about avoiding it. Munching on cardamom pods can relieve it in many cases. Easier to take with you.

My husband had horrible heartburn almost daily. Was on maximum meds with little relief. Wanted to lose a few pounds, (about 30) and went on low carb. Voila!! No more heartburn-ever! Unless he beginsmixing simple carbs with the low carb- cones back every time!

have you read any work from Chris Kresser?

I finally got my husband to try HCl capsules instead of the zantac and it really does work. He usually takes 2 with dinner, but he can also take them after the heartburn first starts and they work in about 20 min.

I also second the gluten & low carb suggestions, it's always worse if he has pasta, a lot of bread or pizza.

Hi. Thanks for all the replies. I do not eat wheat and have not for 2 years. I don't eat processed foods and avoid simple carbs and sugar all together. I have tried everything. I had testing for yeast over growth and leaky gut. Both were very negative. The only thing left for me is food allergy testing by blood test which is not really accurate. I think if I took any hydrochloric acid it would just kill me all together. Will keep pursuing all avenues. I did do a test on my arm with cinnamon and water and I got a big red stinging patch where I put it. I tried it on three other family members and they had no response. I was using it in a lot of things to help with lowering blood sugar. oh well for that.

I read your post its show that heartburn is a common condition that affects more than 70 million Americans annually. If you have to deal with heartburn regularly, no doubt you have wondered if it was possible to get relief from heartburn via home remedies. There are hundreds of heartburn remedies all reported to provide relief. It usually feels worse when lying down or bending forward.



Thanks Smile

I used to. When I got rid of processed carbs it was gone.

I wish mine would go away. All started when I lost my job almost 2 years ago. Been on many interviews and I'm hoping if I can land that hygiene job maybe it will leave with the stress of not finding a job in my chosen field. After 30 years I don't know what else to do. Dentistry is my home. And at 50 I am not going to college for a third time with 2 kids in college. Money doesn't come from a hole in the ground. Wish it did.

My typical suggestion for heartburn is papaya enzymes but since you said that you react to all fruits except banana, I don't know if you could take those.

I always get heartburn form tomatoes, pizza or greasy foods. I limit eating tomatoes, don't eat pizza anymore, and try to avoid grease.

No pizza (both grease and tomatoes), spaghetti and greasy fried foods not only eliminated the heartburn but was also helped lose weight.

Dear I had a bad heartburn too. And still has it a little and tried all what you said but at the end I discovered that it's related to stress. When you decress stress you would be probably better. Try to go on trip or new place it would help too.

I just noticed know what you said about your job and I think this is the reason. So, try some activity which reduce stress like yoga, swimming or any sport you like. And as I said before try to travel or change the normal place you go to if you can and do something new. I hope those would help you.

Is your chicken or protein organic? You eat what they eat and I found that when I ate non-grassfed beef it bothers me a lot, same with chicken that eats gmo corn feed.

I have had a very similar condition for 2 years now that is usually controlled with the drug omeperazole, however if I do get a flare up and I know that it's not food related it is usually caused by increased stress !

I had really, really bad heartburn when I was prego. With each child it was worse. As I could not take any meds to help I had to find my own way. Here is what I found worked for me: Only eat until satisfied (over eating for me seemed to make it 100% worse), eat limited acidic foods (pasta sauce), no eating after 7pm, no fluids an hour before bedtime (nothing). My doctor recommended drinking a small glass of milk or heavy cream when the heartburn was just too much. Believe it or not that seemed to help control the heartburn so that I could get through the day.

I have had severe heartburn for over 6 yrs. began when I was preggo and never stopped. Have had to take omeprazole just to get by. Recently I began yoga and voila the hearturn disappeared and when it recurs it is mild. Could only relate it to stress.
