Acid Reflux

My husband got admitted to the ER recently due to the pain and discomfort on the upper part of his abdomen. He had been feeling it for about 5 days and started to worry, it might be something life threatening. Blood and urine test came back good. Based on the symptoms and after several hours at the ER, the doctor called it Acid Reflux. He prescribe him Zantac but my husband bought the generic Ranitidine instead and it works just fine. He's feeling a lot better now. He can now eat good and sleep well.

I am now on search for foods and recipes that are good for acid reflux. Coffee and spicy foods were a big part of his diet. But right now he has to avoid them until he feels a way lot better and slowly adding them back to his diet. We have a list of foods to avoid but not a list of what to eat. Any recipes or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Thank you!


Here is a computer snapshot of my back yard right now. Such a good day to just seat here and blog.

  1. I am supposed to have acid reflux but I am not sure on that. I know anything acidic is not good and one is supposed to eat slowly (hard for me to do). I know my mother took ranitidine and after a while, she felt much better and could drink coffee and eat oranges so it will take time

    1. Yep, acidic and spicy is not good for him, at least not right now, it'll take time. Ranitidine works just fine and the great part is, my husband only pays .78 cent for 2 weeks worth, twice a day medication.

    1. Thank you Karyn. Yep, my husband has no choice right now when it comes to eating. No ice cream, no coffee, no cheese, no chocolate, and no spicy. He is now walking dead :-) but after his medication, he is going to add those thing back, slowly to his diet.
