Reduce saturated fats, processed foods and sugars. Saturated fats and trans fatty acids are commonly found in foods such as cakes, biscuits, margarine, doughnuts, processed and deep fried foods.
Consume good raw oils in your diet. Foods which contain healthy oils are olive oil, flaxseed, oily fish, nuts, seeds and avocados.I'd also recommend that you eat more bitter foods to stimulate digestive function such as rocket leaves, endive, spinach and kale.
Consider herbal teas such as dandelion, peppermint and ginger to support digestion and the production of bile.
Stress can also be a factor with acid reflux so this may need to be addressed.
