Discovering My Triggers

By Jim Notto

 

catalog your GERD triggersThen I had another realization; sometimes a food would trigger the acid reflux and sometimes it would not. At first I thought it had to do with the amount of food that I ate, so I began to pay attention to this. Sure enough if I overate I would suffer from acid reflux. And yet sometimes even when I did not overeat I would still get symptoms, but not always. The more I paid attention to this the more curious I became. Eventually I realized there was more than one factor at work each of the times I had a bad flair-up of my GERD symptoms. This led me to begin cataloging all the “triggers” I could notice.
