I've been diagnosed with GERD. I get heart burns, sore throats and a lot of nausea but I'm not sensitive to acidic foods could it be a misdiagnosis?

In brief: DGL is used to

help with acid reflux and is safe.
If you take licorice that is not DGL, over time it can raise your blood pressure. Please consult w/your doc. Peace and good health. Acidic-FORMING foods once inside the body are not the same as what they appear to be before we eat them. Search for acidic-FORMING foods.
