Fennel Tea Gerd
Not really known: There are many varieties sold at stores when one goes shopping for chamomile tea. If one chooses a simple, natural tea that doesn't have other additives in it, then is should be as fine to drink as any other regular, natural tea. It is extremely unlikely that any of the teas have been tested for effectiveness in helping any medical condition, so any claims of teas being helpful are just claims. ...Read more
Decaf. GT is good.:
No, green tea is favorable for gerd, together with a healthy diet and lifestyle. Decaffeinated green tea is superior for gerd relief, as caffeine may promote
reflux symptoms in some patients. Japanese consume

mg of polyphenols, the major one being egcg (epigallocatechin-3-gallate).

Gave up diet soda and have IBS and Gerd. Am On 60 mg dexilant (dexlansoprazole). Can I get heartburn from drinking iced tea? And I take my pill at night.
GERD: Good for you for giving up diet sodas! It is possible to have worse reflux from iced tea, but it is usually from the caffeine in the tea. If you're drinking caffeine free tea, it usually does not make GERD worse. As for the DexIlant, (dexlansoprazole) is best to take it 20 to 30 minutes before a meal. I would not recommend taking it at bedtime. Good luck. ...Read more
I drink lots of tea and usually finish a large glass just before bed, then feel it in my throat a few times before falling asleep. NO heartburn. GERD?
Possibly: This sounds like reflux of the fluid you drank back into the esophagus. This can probably be managed by avoiding large volumes of fluid just before you lie down. Try to have your tea earlier, an hour or so before bedtime. Then only take small sips around bedtime if you are thirsty. ...Read more

How about gripe waters for reflux and gas issues for babies? How about mom drinking tea w/ chamomile, fennel, and ginger? What probiotics to use?
Possibly helpful: As someone who practices integrative pediatrics, I do incorporate these remedies for colic/gas in babies. Gripe waters that contain small amounts of fennel and ginger are likely safe as are chamomile and fennel teas (for baby or mom - if baby is under 6m, don't give more than 1 oz 3x per day). Probiotics (bifidus, lactobacillus) have been shown to be safe and effective. ...Read more

I have bad upper intestinal gas and bloat from IBS diet had been changed and probiotic taken daily. Why does simethicone and fennel tea make it worse?
Every person is uniq: Uniquely different. Bloating and gas is from swallowing air. Try not to swallow or gulp. Intentionally breath calmly and make only small swallows but gas can be painful. See a gastroenterologist and ask their opinion. If simethicone and fennel tea make it worse - don't eat or drink those things. ...Read more

Can the common cold cause heartburn? Paracetamol? Herbal tea with honey? I have bad heartburn and have taking paracetamol every 8 hours and drinking tea.
Unlikely.: I have not seen the common cold cause heartburn. I have seen tea, including herbal teas, cause such symptoms, especially in those who already require acid reduction. More importantly, please be cautious about your use of paracetamol, or as it is more commonly known in the USA, acetaminophen, Tylenol. The recommended daily limit is 2 grams, or 2000 milligrams. It is easy to exceed this safe limit! ...Read more
No: Likely not. Even though there is no way to tell without details, it is unlikely. Remember that all babies have reflux - they all spit up. This is why we all buy burp cloths and bibs before we have a baby. But very few have true reflux disease. This only occurs if more severe problems happen like severe pain with spitting or poor weight gain. If you have those symptoms talk with your doctor. ...Read more
Not necessarily: While there are some foods known to increase gerd symptoms such as heartburn and regurgitation by lowering the pressure in the valve at the bottom of the esophagus, this is variable among people. Therefore, if the yogurt doesn't make your symptoms worse, go ahead and have it - moderation of course. ...Read more
Heartburn: The typical symptoms of gerd are heartburn, which is a burning pain under the sternum that occurs after eating meals, often ones that are spicy, acidic, or rich. Other symptoms include regurgitation, hoarseness of the voice, or even asthma attacks and recurrent pneumonias. Be certain to talk to your doctor about this, as heartburn can mimic a heart attack or heart pain (angina). ...Read more
