Jul 11, 2018 · Getting Off of Omeprazole in Digestive Health

I'm really sorry to hear about your suffering. I'm not qualified to advise you about your complex medical condition but I do have a list of foods that I avoid for the hyper acidity that I experience. I take Zantac 150 once in the morning before breakfast and then another one of the same before an early dinner.The foods I avoid are those that are spicy, tomatoes, garlic and pepper of all kinds.No citrus fruit or any tart tasting ones. Apples and bananas are fine for me.Unfortunately I have to limit eating mangoes that I love,to one a day at lunch only. I'm a vegetarian so no meat but skim milk with muesli- no added sugar- I use stevia as sweetener. By the way sugar is very bad for acidity ..so all desserts,chocolate, and coffee have to be avoided or drastically reduced.Deep fried foods are a no-no.Full fat cheeses should be replaced by low fat cottage cheese- this helps a lot when I take it last thing at night.However late night snacking is discouraged. You should leave a three hour period between dinner and going to bed,but I have occasionally eaten a banana/cottage cheese before going to bed if I'm hungry.Giving up coffee has been very difficult for me and I love sweet foods so that's also tough!I hope this will be of some help.Bless you

Red tart cherries are more acidic than dark sweet cherries and should be avoided if you have high acidity.Everyone reacts in their own way so you have to experiment

You're absolutely right- just give up all the foods and drinks that you love and your acidity will decline!
