Eat rightEating the wrong foods can worsen acid reflux, either by increasing the acidic environment of the stomach or by relaxing the lower esophageal sphincter, a valve that acts as a barrier between the stomach and the esophagus. Fatty foods top the list of culprits, along with chocolate, citrus fruits, and juices. But different people can react differently to the same foods. The trick is to figure out which foods bother you the most and avoid them, says Amar Deshpande, MD, assistant professor of medicine at the University of Miami School of Medicine.
