What’s Up Doc? Avoiding Foods That Trigger Holiday Heartburn


THE LEFT LANE. JIM? FROM FESTIVE FAMILY DINNERS, ALL OF THE HOLIDAY CLEAR COULD UNWRAP SOME UNWANTED HOLIDAY HEARTBURN. WHAT ARE THE BIGGEST CULPRITS? FAMILY PHYSICIAN DOCTOR ROB DANOFF HERE WITH THE LIST, DOCTOR ROB, FIRST, WHY DO WE GET HEARTBURN? IS IT DIFFERENT FROM ACID REFLUX, BECAUSE I HAVE THE REFLUX. WE USE THOSE TERMS ALL THE TIME. HERE IS THE SCOOP. SO REFLUX IS WHEN SOME ACID GOES FROM THE STOMACH INTO THE ESOPHAGUS AND WE GET THIS LIKE FEELING BURNING FEELING. THAT’S THE HEARTBURN. GASTRO ESOPHOGEAL REFLUX DISEASE OR GUTTER, THAT’S A CHRONIC SYMPTOM. IF YOU HAVE YOUR HEARTBURN EVERY DAY, JIM, YOU MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING CALLED GURD, AND WE HAVE TO TAKE A LOOK AT YOU. I TAKE MY LITTLE NEXIUM, I’M FINE, THAT BUT I AVOID CERTAIN TYPES OF FOODS. DURING THE HOLIDAYS WHETHER ARE SOME CULPRIT? CHOCOLATE. TASTES GREAT BUTT TRIPLE WOMAN I, HIGH IN FAT, COCOA STIMULATE THE ACID AND THE REFLUX, TWO, IS MILK FAT. DO YOU LIKE EGGNOG? NOT BIG EGGNOG, BUT I LIKE MISCHOSE. HAVE THE CHEESE. MILK FAT INCREASES GURD THEN YOU HAVE ALSO CAFFEINE, CAFFEINE, ANYTHING WITH CAFFEINE CAN STIMULATE THAT. SO IF YOU HAVE TREE FLUX DISEASE OR HEARTBURN THAT’S RIGHT IN THERE. AND, ALCOHOL, LIMITED TO ONE, BECAUSE TOO MUCH ALCOHOL YOU’RE GOING GET REFLUX, YOU’RE GOING TO GET SOME HEARTBURN, BUT THE NUMBER ONE CAUSE OF HEARTBURN, FRIED FOODS DEEP FRIED CHICKEN, FRENCH FRIES, SO TO AVOID HEARTBURN, EAT BAKE OR BROILED , NOT FRIED. PEOPLE DURING THE HOLIDAYS GOT PEP EVER MINS, GOOD OR BAD WELL, TASTE GOOD BUT BAD IF YOU HAVE REFLUX, WHAT HAPPENS IS IT OPENS UP THIS MUSCLE BETWEEN OUR STOMACH AND ESOPHAGUS, OUR STOMACH WILL FEEL LESS FULL, BUT THE ASS LID COME BACK UP, NOT GOOD TO HAVE MINT S BUT WHAT YOU CAN DO THAT WILL HELP, ANTACID OR GINGER, GINGER SO GOOD FOR NAUSEOUS NECESSARY, YES, AND NATURAL AND IT WILL HELP IF YOU HAVE THE QUEEZY FEELING. HAVE SOME GINGER. PUT IN SOME TEA, SOME CAMO MILE TEE, WILL HELP FEEL BETTERMENT AND THE AT IS ITS OR CHEWING GUM, BUT AVOID PEPPER MINT CAN IT CAN BE MAKE IT WORSE. DON’T EAT WITHIN THREE, FOUR HOURS OF LYING DOWN OR GOING TO SLEEP. LOOSEN YOUR BELT, ALSO, DON’T EAT AS MUCH IF YOU CAN AND TRY SMALL PORTIONS. SO JIM, IF YOU TAKE MEDICATION, IF IT IS NOT HAPPENING, IF ANTACIDS AREN’T HELPING IF YOU NEED IT MORE THAN TWO WEEKS IN A ROW CALL YOUR DOCTOR.
