tomorrow is 90 days paleo - 32 lbs gone - yea me! Paleo has fixed oh so many thing in my life except heartburn. Back in the SAD days Prevacid pill once a day in the morning pretty much worked all day. Now not working at all.
It seems random,...and often. I have a cup of tea in the AM - we have been experimenting with different types - green, oolong, chocolate, yerba mate, etc. but don't eat til lunchtime which is usually leftover dinner. and then dinner between 6-8pm and then go to bed at between 9-10pm. Usually after lunch I have 2 squares of Lindt 85% chocolate and maybe a few berries or a handful of nuts once a day.Eat a decent balanced dinner - salad , meat and veg every night. Most days I feel like an hour or so after whatever I eat I get light heartburn.
In the past I have been caffeine sensitive - can't drink tea or chocolate past 3pm or so or it effects my sleep.
I guess reading this over after typing I should first try cutting the tea out altogether and see if that makes a difference? that cup of tea a 7 am is literally the only thing I drink other than water all day. I have never (nor want to) drink coffee.
On days when it has already started and is bothering me enough - chewing a single Tums antacid usually brings it back down to a less bothersome level. But of course those have a lot of crappy ingredients in them.
Any other suggestions? What works for you?
