I am using oatmeal/steel cut (cup) morning with cinnamon and soy milk. Lo fat chicken broth with instant Barley (1/2 cup added to soup) for lunch. When I get hungry I have plain yogurt. I take udo encyme 2 capsules before each meal, and 1/4 cup aloe before all big meals. I have suffered all my life with GERD and acid mouth. This has not been easy because I like white wine. I have 2 glasses at least 3-4 times a week. This diet has soothed my sore stomach. I tried everything and this works. It is inexpensive and healthy!!I also had hpylori, and there is scar tissue from 2 ulcers.
It cured that rotten taste in my mouth. I have had to go on a food regimen because I know that everything I eat sends me to the moon with the burping. If you took a match to me I would blow sky high. I got several books from library and found the food we eat today and the additives in them are not good for we who have stomach problems. Barley is used in most of my meals. Enzyme capsules and aloe drink helps so much also. My dad died from stomach cancer when I was young. We think that this may have been his problem too.
I do not eat candy I did not like the acid taste in mouth. The candy would increase discomfort!! Eating right is the key. After reading comments from people, many of them are taking too many drs prescriptions that is damaging to the liver. Barley, oatmeal, fat free soup, rye crisp (snacks) Aloe vera drinks, and Enzymes at least 2 before each meal. I also take a 1/2 lemon juice and 1/2 tes baking soda and glass water, to stop belching.. It will not cure the Gerd, but it will ease any stomach problems. I was tested in Lenox Hill Hospital to measure the acid level in system, it would help to run my car for a week, that is how strong. You fight the disease, do not let it fight you!!! Ulcer cures and foods are the way to go.
WATCH what you eat.
