Does decaf coffee cause problems with gerd & why can it??



Does decaf coffee cause problems with gerd & why can it??

Decaff coffee still has caffeine in it. I have decided to show you some more about GERD to help you in the future and to better understand it.

I am not a doctor, so either way you will want to talk to them, but this is what I have to say as a long time sufferer of Acid Reflux (G.E.R.D.)!

Three part answer information, what not to do, and what to do!

INFORMATION!!!!!!
I have a very severe case of Acid Reflux (G.E.R.D.). I have had to go to the hospital for some of the heartburn that I have had because the pain can become overwhelming or your breathing can be effected. It can be caused by Smoking, Drinking Beverages with caffeine (My case), Drinking Beverages with Alcohol, or can be Hereditary

The good thing about G.E.R.D. is that it can be a temporary thing and can be cured. It is never a permit thing even if you end up with it for the rest of your life it has the ability to be cured.

WHAT NOT TO DO!!!!!!!!
In most cases, stress is a factor to the reflux if you watch what you eat and reduce some of the stress it will help. If you watch what you eat for about a week you should find relief, if you do not then that is when you definitely what to listen to the doctor. Things to watch for are as follows:

Fatty Foods
Citrus Foods
Foods That Contain Grease
Fried Foods
Chocolate (including any Coco)
Caffeine
Smoking
Alcohol
Tomato Based Products
Lactose

WHAT TO DO!!!!
The two foods that I recommend is Black strap Molasses and Raw honey. The apple is better for night time reflux while these will work for just about all of it. What you will do is take about a tsp. of whatever one you chose. Molasses being the better because of strength and nutrition, but must be use to the taste. What the substance will do is stick to the sides of the esophagus and do two things, one is heal and the other is protect.
On the healing end, both substances have a healing property in them, and as they sit on the walls of the esophagus they will heal it. This is also helpful if you have a sore throat in the morning from refluxing.
On the protection end, both substances are high in sugar and when acid that is refluxed comes up to that the sugar will neutralize it and it will not longer be a problem at that point.

I would also look to putting Cinnamon in you diet, it has been know to help with digestion and will help you reduce the amount of acid needed to brake down food, therefore causing you to reflux less.
not just decaf regular coffee causes gerd too.... eat toast with ur coffee.
Yes coffee itself contains and acid that causes gerd. if you need your coffee take a pepcid once a day and eat bread with your coffee (to absorb) some of the acid. It wont cure you but it will help.
Yes, it can just becuz it says decaf there is always a minimal amt. of caffeine present. Nevertheless, caffeine affects GERD, and if you have had an outbreak it takes a while for your esophagus to heal, so it will be sensitive to all things that affect GERD ie: Acidic Foods, Fried Foods, Caffeine, Chocolate thus meaning ketchup, tomato sauce,paste, soda, juices. Aftaer my first GERD attack I lost 15lbs. Good Luck
