Particularly interested in alternative/complementary therapies that will reduce regurgitation for my adolescent daughter. She's on Nexium, which helps control the burning but doesn't reduce the regurgitation.
To prevent heartburn, avoid foods and beverages that may trigger your symptoms. For many people, these include:
Citrus fruits and juices
Spicy or fatty foods
Full-fat dairy products
If other foods regularly give you heartburn, avoid those foods, too.
Also, try the following changes to your eating habits and lifestyle:
Avoid bending over or exercising just after eating
Avoid garments or belts that fit tightly around your waist
Do not lie down with a full stomach. For example, avoid eating within 2 - 3 hours of bedtime.
Do not smoke.
Eat smaller meals.
Lose weight if you are overweight.
Sleep with your head raised about 6 inches. Do this by tilting your entire bed, or by using a wedge under your body, not just with normal pillows.
