We all love to enjoy a delicious meal in the evening before going to sleep, right? Well, this may cause indigestion, unbearable heartburn, and acid reflux and we will be not able to sleep.
It is estimated that 60% of the adults in the U.S. will experience gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) within 12 months and 20-30% will have weekly symptoms.
Different conventional medications can treat digestion problems, but they can come with side effects and lead to further complications. So, you should always opt for the natural way!
Well, it is ideal to avoid the foods and drinks that can cause indigestion and other stomach problems. However, we all like to enjoy a tasty meal from time to time, right?
Jackson Siegelbaum Gastroenterology claims that people suffering from GERD need to avoid these foods, drinks and lifestyle habits:
- fatty or fried foods
- tobacco and nicotine products
- creamed veggies or soups
- fast foods
- late-night snacks and lying down directly after eating
- caffeinated soft drinks
- large meals during the day ( it is better to have smaller meals for better digestion)
- spicy or acidic foods
- tight clothing and bending over after eating
- citrus fruits such as grapefruit, oranges, and pineapple
- processed meats
- carrying extra weight
- chewing gum and hard candy (they can increase the amount of air swallowed, which causes belching and acid reflux)
You may think that this is a lot to avoid, but the most important thing is how often you consume the above-mentioned foods and drinks. Make sure to follow a whole foods diet, consuming as many fruits and vegetables as possible. Occasionally, you can consume the foods on the list above, but make sure to limit their consumption.
