In brief: What to avoid

Rather then eat foods to reduce reflux, i try to counsel patients on foods to avoid that trigger reflux.
This may differ in everybody but known triggers are caffeine, chocolate, nicotine, alcohol, soda, licorice, peppermint. You should keep a dietary log to see what your triggers are. And if you have red flags like difficulty swallowing, weight loss, vomiting or black stools, please c md.
