I am having trouble with heart-burn. It seems no matter what I eat I get heart-burn, wether it is raw or cooked. It is worse when I eat cooked food. I am trying to go lfvraw but am having so much trouble cuz even mono meals are giving me it. The only thing that it isn't that bad after is banana. Watermelon is the worst, and it would seem that oranges aren't too good atm as well. I never had a problem with this until this last month. I am also getting nauseous after some meals and through some nights.
Does any one know what could be up? PLEASE HELP!!
Sounds like you are the perfect candidate for banana island! Banana Islanders
Water output? Do you pee ten times daily? Hydration makes a big difference in digestion.
Sleep schedule? Sleep quality and quantity makes a big difference in digestion.
I did try mostly bananas 2 weeks ago, it was kinda a fail though. I got sick of just bananas and was eating other fruits too by the end. I could try a different sort of fruit, or maybey just dates and bananas for a week or two? I try to get to bed around 8-9pm, but it doesnt always turn out that way. I know when i am dehydrated cuz my voice gets super husky and dry, which happens alot, so i should drink more. Thanks, ednshell.
It might pay to get checked out by a doctor. Heartburn/Acid reflux isn't a normal reaction on a wholefoods type diet. Unless of course you're drinking heaps of booze and/or coffee.
VERY hard to get ripe oranges from a store. We only eat a few lb of oranges a year for this very reason. We LOVE oranges though but they are so hard to get FULLY ripe in Australia/USA.
How to tell if an orange is actually ripe?! I always thought if they are fragrant and are relatively soft to the touch, bingo
you can only tell by taste, they must be super duper sweet with no hint of sourness whatsoever.
what time do you finish your last meal ? try to finish by 5pm so stomach is clear for new day
agree 1000% with edshell get the 3+ quarts of water in before eating
cucumbers for immediate relief
i presume you are not drinking coffee
I had acid reflux for 6 years go banana island.
Thanks everyone, your tips have been helpful. And, no, I am NOT drinking coffee or booze. I haven't had coffee since March and alcohol since January. Cucumbers give me hiccups!!! And Harley, all the oranges I've been eating are really orange, sweet and juicy. Thanks guys.
I have barely gotten heartburn yesterday or today. Today is my 3rd day raw, been trying really hard to stay on the wagon.
thats great news.
