yes the PPI's are super bad for you and also gaviscon the aluminum level is bad for you. i used to take a lot of that and yes the liquid was better but again high levels or aluminum. there are so many other foods other than what you mentioned that are acidic and will cause you reflux problems you nee to search for acidic and alkaline food charts/ until my nutritionist showed me the first chart i was shocked to see how many foods are seriously acidic that i never knew about and some "healthy foods" just have an acidic effect on the body. also some acidic foods that become alkaline i the belly like .lime and lemon. wonderful for the belly . dont ever get used to having reflux it will destroy your insides in time like mine did. learn ways to get rid of it. the drugs are not the answer. their diet but an all alkaline diet is the answer. trust me.
Oh forgot to mention: sleeping elevate so the acid from the stomach doesn't flow back into the esophagus. Put a couple of bricks under the box spring.
