And here are some miscellaneous techniques to try if you suffer from acid reflux disease...
 
   * Since nicotine weakens the lower esophageal muscle, you should stop using tobacco in all forms.
 
   * Avoid chewing gum and hard candy, which increase the amount of swallowed air, which, in turn, leads to belching and reflux.
 
   * Do not lie down immediately after eating.
 
   * Avoid late evening snacks.
 
   * Avoid tight clothing and bending over after eating.
 
   * Eat small, frequent portions of food and snack if needed.
 
   * Lose weight if overweight. Obesity leads to increased reflux.
 
   * Elevate the head of the bed six to eight inches to prevent reflux when sleeping. Extra pillows, by themselves, are not very helpful.
 
Remember, the healthiest diets are those that are composed whole foods from both plant and animal kingdoms. If you want a great diet that will build health, stay away from processed and packaged foods as much as possible.
 
You'll be pleasantly surprised at the improvements you'll experience when you practice the acid reflux disease diet that you developed.
