Eliminate Acid-Triggering Foods
Acidic foods, such as canned or jarred foods, chocolate, coffee, French fries, lemons, oranges, pineapples, tea, and tomatoes, can all trigger your acid reflux. These are all foods with ascorbic acid or citric acid, including the preservatives in canned foods that can cause inflammation. Instead of drinking acidic beverages like coffee and tea, try alkaline alternatives like alkaline water.
