Leading Acid Reflux Causes You Should Know About

You’d think this would be a pretty easy answer. If you’ve searched the web, like I did, you’ve probably seen a lot of articles with many telling you the same, with a variation here and there. So, after years of dealing with reflux, my quest has taken me down a path of learning more about our bodies and how they work. Some of what I’ve learned is counterintuitive. So, here’s what I’ve learned from my own experience:

  1. Diet. Our American diet is horrible. Ok, I said it. You may say, oh, but I eat organic, or I eat my fruits and veggies, blah blah. Take a look at this chart and then reassess your diet. In the meantime, see this blog post.
  2. Eating late. If you go to bed within three hours after you’ve eaten you can expect a problem.
  3. Overweight. This goes back to number 1. Being overweight causes increased pressure on the abdomen. Back to number 1. Change your diet and you’ll lose weight
