In brief: Sometimes.

Depends on problem. If acid, yes.
It could also be food sensitivity, allergies, lactose intolerance (dairy problem) too much food, gas, blockage of some sort, malabsorption, type of food, etc. Keep a food journal and see if you can identify if a particular type of food is the problem. Could be a gallbladder, liver, or pancreas problem as well. Best to have it evaluated by a physician.
