My answer to What is the best home remedy to stop GERD/Acid Reflux problem permanently?
Answer by Connie b. Dellobuono:
Eat small meals, my 80 yr old mom will say as she experience the same. Ginger and eggs help her while meat is hard for her. And so, she does not eat meat at dinner time as it takes, 4hrs or more for seniors especially to digest meat.
I buy her digestive enzymes and fresh pineapples and other greens at whole foods. She is always walking and moving and never had any constipation as she is only taking one med (anti-hypertensives). Each morning, she can easily defecate after one cup of coffee.
Betaine HCL supports the stomach's production of hydrochloric acid and protein digestion. Individuals suffering with stomach and intestinal problems most frequently assume that heartburn, indigestion, gas, and reflux are caused by overproduction of stomach acid.
